I have stayed in many a hotel in my life but I have never booked a hotel as nasty as this one. There was literal mold on the pillows, people sitting around drinking during the middle of a Wednesday and just overall gross. If you have any sensitivity to mold there is no way you could stay here our noses are stopping up before we could get out of the room (less than 5 minutes). There were unknown substances on the wall, a spot that was not supposed to be on the sheets. We did ask for another room after being put in the annex rooms. We were given one in the main hotel at least it had newer pillows but we still got a bad feeling that it wasn't clean. Needless to say we turned in our keys and books an awesome aire BNB for about the same price on Kitty Hawk.

DISGUSTING! We checked in to a really rude lady at the front desk. We were placed into room 512. We opened the door to a moldy, musty room. We had a dead beetle in the middle of the floor, a random pill laying on the floor, and a cigarette burn in the bed. We immediately left and went somewhere else. I wouldn’t be surprised I’d this is a meth hotel that books by the hour. AVOID!

For what they are charging they can afford housekeepers. First of all, the hotel room was dirty. There were stains in the sink and on the floor and the bathtub had hair in it (yea, disgusting). I had bleach wipes, so I had to clean everything. The carpet and bedding is from the '90s and was so gross and obviously scary because of the rest of the uncleanliness in the room. Our room was outside the indoor pool (which they said was drained for Covid, which obviously makes no sense, they are just cheap), HOWEVER, they had floodlights throughout the indoor pool, that they didn't turn off at night. Our hotel room door had a good 1/2" space on three sides of the door, so light was in our room all night. Then the blinds also were exactly the length of the window, so those let in a huge amount of light from outside. The room and hallways all smelled of cigarette smoke, since they have never re-painted or replaced carpets. Honestly, it was worse than a Motel 6 and yet they charged us $283.

We booked this inn at the last minute. Although very dated and average at best, the woman at the front desk was knowledgeable and courteous. The rooms were dated but clean and serviceable. It is not luxurious but adequate for a weekend stay. I got the impression that it is a family owned business on austerity trying to stay afloat post COVID who can’t absorb the losses like larger hotel chains could and probably didn’t get any COVID relief. I might be wrong here filling in the blanks. I think they are trying to do their best and also can’t find workers like everyone else

Booked based off of their website and those days are long gone. Musty smell in the hallways and elevator. Room was clean and the bed was adequate. Had a very small television and chair that was seemingly made for a child. Both the indoor and outdoor pools were unavailable. It's a place to sleep but definitely needs major renovations.

Good room and good location but... If cleanliness is your thing, this is really not your place. The night stand was dirty and sticky and we had to clean it ourselves, the carpet was dirty and the bathtub condition wasn't really the best. Also the bedside light can only be tooth turned on/off unplugging the cord from the socket. Not good value for the money.

The Elizabethan was probably a reasonably grand motel in its day, but it has aged and is very dated. It was considerably cheaper than motels in Nags Head and was very convenient to the marina at Wanchese where we had booked a fishing trip. There was only one ice machine for multiple buildings--not very convenient. A minifridge and microwave were available. No breakfast, but a Dunkin Donuts just down the street opens early and had breakfast sandwiches. If you don't set the bar very high, the Elizabethan will do--but of course, we only had male family members on this trip.

We were there for a softball tournament. We brought our little dog . They put us in an outdated room all the way in the back away from the team. I requested to move and they refused. The room was not what I was expecting . The pool closed too. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone .

We booked a stay at the Elizabethan Inn and checked into the hotel. Unfortunately, upon receiving our key card to the room, we were disappointed to find that the room was filthy and smelly. However, we were going to attempt to make the best of it. But, after using the restroom, we were upset to find that the toilet did not flush, but just overflowed all over the bathroom. We attempted to use the hotel phone to contact the front desk only to find no working phone service. After calling the hotel from my cell phone (and waiting on an extended hold), we were first told that there is no working phone service in the part of the hotel we were assigned to. We notified the front desk that the toilet was not working and overflowing in the bathroom. The only resolution offered was that we should “try and find a plunger.” We were left in a room with no working phones, no working toilet and toilet water all over the bathroom. We were never given the option of changing rooms, or of having the toilet repaired. At that point, we could not stay in the room, with our two children, without a functioning toilet. We packed and notified the front desk that we were leaving due to having a room with no toilet. The front desk again refused to resolve the issue (by changing rooms or fixing the toilet) or to give us a refund. We had to drive two hours home in the middle of the night with two children. and forfeit our tickets for the activities that we had planned the next day.

Beware. Beware. Beware. I cannot say this enough. We stayed there on a group rate and didn't even make it through the night. Had a room curtain assembly fall on my wife causing injury to her. This unit which is in excess of around 35-40 lbs was attached to the ceiling using 6 in screws straight into the ceiling. No anchors, no studs. (See pictures) The night clerk was very dismissive and slightly combative on her choice of words when I stated "I have a issues with you guys" while referring to the room she replied with such gems as it's not like we did it on purpose, or I'm my 15 years of doing this we never had that happen well except at one of my other places, or well that's a surprise as we've been renting these rooms. Just disgusting. Did not offer a incident report. To their credit they did offer a different room however at that point we did not feel safe staying there any longer so we did check out and they provided a full refund. Just beware as you get what you pay for here
