We had a third floor room that was warm, clean & cozy but would choose 2nd floor east if we visited again. Good hospitality - wine in evening & breakfast included with room is mediocre in off season. Restful & clean.

A beautiful facility with friendly, helpful staff equals a fantastic stay. This was our first stay at the First Colony Inn and I can guarantee it will not be our last.

Celebrated a March birthday with a stay at the First Colony Inn. The social hour was wonderful - excellent sweet & savory snacks with good wine offerings. Our room was delightful - clean, spacious, and charming. Breakfast was wonderful. So much more enjoyable than a chain hotel. We shall return.

This was the first time my fiancé and I had visited the Outer Banks, and we enjoyed our stay at First Colony Inn very much. We visited off season, in February, so it was quiet, but we'll definitely be back some day during the summer. Our room (the Ambrose Viccars) was very large and comfortable. We had a day bed...
