“excellent trip for my daughters”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

my oldest daughter wanted to take a trip( sister trip) with her 15 year old sister after graduation from high school. they stayed at breakwater inn for 7 nights. they had a great time. excellent view from balcony. ref and microwave in room. they ate many of their meals at the Breakwater restaurant, food was excellent. My oldest daughter said she had the best steak dinner there that she had ever eaten. both highly recommend the inn and the restaurant. My wife and i hope to spend a few days there in 2013.

The people who run the Breakwater Inn were very accommodating and nice. It was nice to stay at the marina - there was always something interesting going on and it was fun to watch the boats coming and going. One thing to consider is that fishermen and tours leave in the early morning hours so you might have some noise from these activities, but we didn’t find that annoying for the few days we were there.

The rooms were basic and comfortable, although the air conditioning units were a bit loud, but they did cool the rooms nicely (we had one of the suites). The “breakfast” was a bit sparse - consisting of a pre-packaged Danish and coffee, but we enjoyed Sonny’s, across the street if we wanted a big breakfast.

An earlier reviewer said there was no wi-fi, but we had wi-fi. We were in the room directly above the office. The wi-fi reception may not be strong enough for rooms further away, you’d need to inquire at the front desk if you aren’t getting wi-fi reception.

The only real negative was that our balcony was shared with the laundry room vents next door, so it got a bit loud at times when the dryers were running.

Overall, we felt it was a good value for the money and would stay there again if we are ever back in that area. As I stated initially, the people were very accommodating and friendly.

Room Tip: If you are getting one of the king suites, you might want to inquire about the one that doesn't...

Located on small marina, excellent to watch fishermen and their catch, from room's balcony. Excellent restaurant by same owners NeXTdoor. Cons: lousy breakfast, no wifi, but THE best place in Hatteras village

Clean rooms with basic kitchen facilities and nice balcony overlooking the sound side marina. Very pleasant folk. Convenient to everything. Quiet, good for sleeping. Wish the window had opened so we could let in some breeze, we don't like air conditioning, but there is the door to the balcony. No elevator, but they have an electronic lift for the luggage, rather clever. Would definitely stay again.

If your looking to spend most of your time out on the sand or in kayaks like us & just want a place to rest at night then this may be it. Nothing fancy at all, we stayed in the Fisherman's Quarters so we could bring our pup. It served the purpose. A tad small inside, floor always felt damp & sandy to me. If you want fancier stay in the regular inn. The location is great for sportsmen & fisherman who want to be close to the fishing. The staff was very nice. Not sure if we'll be back, would probably scale up or try a larger room next time.

We wanted a nice clean place to stay for a couple of days and it definitely lived up to our expectations! The room (a 2 Queen bed non-smoking room) was very comfortable, clean and while they might be a bit outdated - they are in good shape. The view was beautiful and relaxing. The staff was very pleasant from the first phone call to reserve right through to our check out!! Would definitely recommend this Inn and would be happy to go back again.
