“Step back in time...........”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

When looking for places to stay at Ocracoke you have to look at the Island and what it is about. We knew we wanted quiet, laid back and very Family friendly. Blackbeards Lodge offered all that and a whole lot more. You definitely step back to a peaceful time. The pictures on the walls, the music that played very softly and the game room, you just felt you were pulled back to the 1930's. A happy time. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty, they made our stay very comfortable. Our room was just a room with a double bed, sink and bathroom. Nothing fancy just very homey and very inviting. We will be back!!!! As the saying goes "Once your feet hit the sand you will always come back to Ocracoke".

Blackbeard's Lodge is not a fancy hotel, but it is very comfortable. It reminds me of staying with your grandma. A variety of rooms are available. Lots of history as this is the oldest hotel on Ocracoke. Like many older hotels, the a/c is window/wall unit which is a little noisy. It is comfortable and clean, but not fancy. Very close to everything (nothing is too far away on Ocracoke), but this is also on a quiet street. The beach is not viewable, but it is just down the street. Nice place for a quiet get away.

I was searching for accommodations with charm and character and Blackbeard's Lodge did not disappoint. The room was on the small side, with older furnishing and a very small sink. The bed was not that comfortable but it was adequate for our two-night stay. The staff I encountered were all very friendly. We were able to rent a golf-cart from the reception desk and we enjoyed swimming in the pool. Blackbeard's Lodge met my expectations but nothing was exceedingly noteworthy.

My wife and I stayed here the weekend of July 26-27, 2014. We stayed in one of the rooms with a king-sized bed. It was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. I thought it was a gel mattress, but Chip the manager, told me it was a tempurpedic, and they were replacing all their mattresses with those kinds...very comfortable.

The hotel is well-maintained and convenient to everything. Bike rentals are available by the day or hour. The game room and lobby are well-stocked with books and games. The front porch is shady and nice for rocking chairs and people-watching.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful with everything.

I saw there are some negative reviews here, but we had a wonderful experience. The rates are very reasonable, too.

My family stayed at Blackbeards Lodge last week while visiting Ocracoke for the first time. We were put in the Boyette Suite, 2 double beds and a queen bed separated by a Jack and Jill bathroom, which was perfect for us! Each room has it's own sink which made sharing a bathroom much easier. Our room was very clean and all the furnishings throughout the entire lodge really cater to the whole Blackbeard theme which our kids loved! The pool was very clean also! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with any questions we had and we thoroughly enjoyed our time!!

A couple times a year the "girls" get together for a few days of low key enjoyment and we always stay at Blackbeards. It's a short walk to any place we'd like to go. Although I've suggested we try another place, the girls feel it's like our 2nd home. There's restaurants, entertainment or shops all very close and a short walk down town. The Ocracoke coffee shop is just around the corner for the early risers to go sit until the others stroll on down. It's an old building with more of a country style than a beach décor, however, it's clean and the staff is friendly and accommodating

I stayed at Blackbeard's Lodge in the Manager's Apartment with my wife, our 15-month old, another couple, and their 2-year old. The Manager's apartment has three bedrooms, two baths, kitchen, living room, dining room, and a screened porch right beside the pool. We were all thrilled with our stay. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, the staff was outstanding, and the Lodge is convenient to a lot of great places on the island. My 5-piece band stayed on the island as well, and one of our shows was canceled due to weather, so the staff let us play an acoustic set in the Lobby, and allowed us to use their piano (which was in tune!) We had a absolute blast, and a lot of other folks at the lodge came down to listen. It was a perfect end to our week on Ocracoke. I truly can't say enough good things about Blackbeard's Lodge. If you're looking for a penthouse suite in a 5-star hotel, then this probably isn't the place for you, but if you're looking for super-clean rooms, friendly service, a place rich in history with a lot of charm and character, then you owe it to yourself to stay here. You will NOT be disappointed.
