This hotel was in the perfect location! We got a 2 bedroom on the second floor. The beds and pillows were not soft at all. The condo was for sale and it needed to updating but I would absolutely stay here again it was close to so much yet set away from a lot of the touristy places. My daughter...

Our friend allowed us to use a time share here and it is a great place. Wonderful views I love it hope to come to this area again next year. We also recommend the Surfari restaurant just down the road great food. A short ride to Beaufort allows you to take a ferry ride out to multiple islands. Sand dollar...

We purchased a week 10 years ago and just last year we purchased a 2nd week. We love the area and great views. The beach access is the best because of the sea wall no blocking dumes to cross. The building is older but every year they make improvements. You must visit Beaufort and Fort Macon during your visit.

Because of the reviews I was not expecting the best but still confident. Even the Google Earth view wasn't too great. But then we arrived at the Whaler Inn.... it was wonderful. Our unit was very nicely decorated, had all the comforts of home, and the VIEW!!!! I could have stayed there another month, and still not had enough!! We...

Arriving at the Whaler Inn, my husband and I were shocked at the outdoor view of the Inn. It looked very old and "glued together." It was even more obvious that this place was old when we opened the door to our room. We traveled back to the 60"s. Furniture and rooms are dated. No toiletries offered, as are in...

My husband and I have stayed at the Whaler Inn several times. We have always had a pleasant experience. Our rooms have been clean and comfortable and the staff works hard to make everything enjoyable. The ocean view is awesome and the short walk to the beach is so nice. We did have an unwanted visitor on our last trip...

Each year I visit NC and always stay at the Whaler Inn. I highly recommend, the staff and the rooms are wonderful. They make me feel at home during every visit. The visiting cats on the balcony are also another nice thing. Can't wait for my next visit in January!

The lack of a stable wifi connection prompted us to write this review. Even the Super8 we stayed in on the way had wifi, a pool, breakfast, and better furnishings. Can't believe we paid so much for what we got. The beach access was nice, as was the semi-enclosed pool and hot tub. Bring your own towels. The fact that...

Decided to do a very last minute trip to Emerald Isle, almost everything was booked up. After reading some trip advisor reviews decided to take a chance on the Whaler. As a previous reviewer stated the facility was built before zoning and is very close to the beach. We had a room on the side and the view was incredible,...

We stayed in unit A3 which has a side view (no view of beach). But that was OK, a short walk up a grass yard and you were at the ocean. Our unit offered 1 bedroom with 2 queen beds, 2 full bathrooms, kitchen & living area. There was a privacy curtain between the 2 queen beds. The kitchen needed...
