Three guys stayed in a room with 3 beds & room for two more beds! Delightful Breakfast prepared & served by Hugh the owner/operator. Was easy to find with plenty of parking & a very accomodating staff. We are going again on 21 June & they remembered us from our Feb 2014 visit.

Room Tip: The loft has 3 beds & lots of ROOM to enjoy.

My husband and I love coming to Oriental for a quiet weekend. It's fun to walk around the town and look at the boats and the river. The inn is clean and well appointed. The owners are friendly. The entire atmosphere is stress free and relaxing. This is the only fully operating B&B in town.

My wife and I love making a weekend trip to Oriental, and we always stay at the Inn at Oriental. There is no reason to stay at the other inns, which are more expensive, and have a two night minimum. The owners of the Inn at Oriental are very friendly, the rooms are extremely nice, and they provide a excellent breakfast. No need to worry that the Inn isn't located on the water, because everything in Oriental is within walking distance.

Clean rooms, close to all Oriental shops. (limited). do call ahead so proprietors will turn up the AC in summer a few hours before you arrive. Nice people, rates high. Rooms not sound proofed. No pool. Nice shady outdoor areas to eat if you like. Walk to marina. One of only a few places in town to stay. Cute house dog. Homemade breakfast. A little pricey.

Room Tip: Stay here if you're quiet or need quiet. Rooms are not sound proof and are close to each other

Oriental is about the size of a postage stamp - but it's a very cozy little sailing village and the Inn at Oriental is located right in the middle of the "action." The hosts were lovely, breakfast was simple but hit the spot. In 100 degree NC heat, that AC unit was cranking pretty hard and kept the room icy cold and lovely. Great night's sleep, hot showers, and affordable. Can't ask for more.

My mother and I stayed one night and were very pleased. Charming, yet updated, our room with two twin beds was very comfortable. They had new carpet and everything was clean even though we were drop in guests without prior reservations. We were served a full breakfast with our choice of menus and exchanged pleasant conversation with other guests. The inn is located in Oriental which is on the Neuse River. We highly recommend it.

No one was there when we arrived at 5 pm, yet the check-in time is not until 4 pm so it's not as though we were running late. A barely readable note was left that we should call when we got there and someone would come check us in. We had to wait 15 minutes after an exhausting day.

The room was not clean, particularly the bathroom (hair) and the toilet (stained). The whole house, including the bed linens, smelled of smoke and mildew. No chair except a straight-back so the only way to read was in bed. The mattress was awful with no support whatsoever. We both rolled to the middle with the least little move. We both woke up at 2 a.m. freezing with no blankets in the room except one tiny throw.

The room was very small although the website shows pictures of larger rooms. We were one of two couples staying.

Breakfast was adequate, but not of B&B quality. The coffee was good.

No wi-fi in this B&B, but we did latch on to the B&B next door with no problem.

Owners have a dog who is friendly. Owners were not overly friendly and could be heard arguing in the kitchen as we waited for breakfast.
