"My wife and I spent the weekend here to celebrate our anniversary and absolutely loved it! It’s a great place to stay at the beach and the location is perfect. We echo all the 5 star comments on this thread. What surprises me is that there are no comments about any unexplained experience. Early Sunday morning I woke up to rush of wind across my legs and a few minutes later, it happened again. I thought it was odd since the a/c was blowing the other direction but what happened next was crazy! Right after the second rush of wind, something was tapping the sheet between me and my wife and the tapping started at my feet and ended at my knee. It felt like a cat was walking between us. I looked the third time this happened and it stopped. I layed there wondering what the heck it was and it did it two more times. I kicked under the sheets on the fifth time and it stopped. We stayed on the third floor and, like I said, I’m surprised nobody has said anything about this but I’m curious if anyone else experienced something similar."

"The First Colony Inn is a lovely old property in a great location for visiting the Outer Banks. Our room was spacious, clean and well appointed. Buffet breakfast choices were very good and the hot option varied each day. There's a wonderful beach opposite the inn and a good selection of restaurants and shops nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return."

"Stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed so many things. The wrap around porch with a variety of chairs, the delicious breakfast each day, and happy hour. We also used the beach cruisers each morning for a long ride along the bike path/sidewalk. The grounds are spacious too. The hotel is close proximity to the beach. The staff was very friendly."

"We loved our stay. Everyone was so kind especially the girl who worked so hard from check in and out serving breakfast cleaning table’s getting us ice. I wish I knew her name. She is a great employee and kind person. She deserves every cent of her pay plus way more. Breakfast’s were delicious. Short walk to the ocean. A very much needed getaway! Thank you for everything!"

"As first time guests, my husband and I were very impressed! The room we reserved was furnished with a beautiful 4- poster bed, writing table, tiled bathroom with a heated towel rack, flat screen tv, and a pair of wingback chairs. The staff was very courteous and helpful, and the complimentary delicious breakfasts varied from day to day. There is a huge wrap-around porch with rockers and hammock chairs."

"I stayed here for a night with my coworker, the inn is super charming and has great facilities. The location next to the beach is definitely a plus. I was surprised how affordable it was. I was pleasantly surprised as well by how amazing and filling breakfast was! It felt like a homecooked meal by my mom. I've traveled a lot for work and stayed in many hotels, and the breakfast in those places has never been that great."

"We stayed in the Superior King Room on the third floor. This was a unique and authentic experience that I would recommend to anyone traveling in the OBX. It was like a step back in time. It has been kept up to modern standards while preserving it’s historical character from the 1930s. The ocean can be viewed from the room, and the room is filled with antique furnishings like a writing table, four poster bed, day bed, chairs, etc. Taking a bath was lovely, with a heated towel rack, and nice lighting to set the mood. I would 100% recommend this stay, and it’s very affordable. So glad to have stumbled across this place!"

"Enjoyed our stay at this quaint location. We had private access to the beach, walking distance to restaurants and markets. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. It was a nice place to relax and hang out after the events of the day. We had a kitchenette in our room so we could cook in if we desired. I liked that they had a library with books and games. The breakfast offered in the AM was good and the coffee was excellent! I never could say that at any other hotel I've been at. I'd say the only con was that the walls were a little thin so you could hear people walking around occasionally and the birds chirping in the morning. Although I don't think hearing birds in the morning is necessarily a con. I would definitely stay again and for a longer time. Rooms: rooms were large and clean. I had the deluxe king and it had a kitchenette with a little fridge and kureg coffee maker. Walkability: walking distance to restaurants and markets if needed. The beach access is just on the other side of the 12."

"I had a great stay at this charming inn. The staff was extremely friendly and hospitable. Breakfast was amazing with a lovely continental spread in addition to a served hot dish. The evening social also featured some delicious items that were made in-house. I hope the chef never leaves! My room was extremely comfortable and cozy, and I loved that it didn't look like every other chain hotel room."
