We stayed at Otway Inn because it is 10 miles closer to Ferry than an inn in Beaufort. With a 6 am departure to make the ferry, this was important. The owner was helpful on the phone recommending one of the best restaurants anywhere, Williams Restaurant, in Morehead City. We had an outstanding meal there on our way to the inn.
Once we arrived at Otway we found our room to be clean but a with a slight odor. I noticed it more than my husband. The owner does like to talk. She was very nice to prepare a generous to-go breakfast for us. Her sanitation rating at the time of our stay was 100. She also has an amazing assortment of tea for non coffee drinkers. Otway House is okay for a one night stay on the way to somewhere else. Allergy sufferers may have a problem. Light sleepers need to be aware that walls are thin and snoring was heard between floors.
