Manteo, NC, Hotels

Including Roanoke Island Hotels

The best way to experience Roanoke Island, with its small towns of Manteo and Wanchese, is to come for the night (or several). Stay in a Manteo, NC, hotel and you'll fall in love with the town's after-hours tranquility and somehow grows even more special at night and in the early morning. There are also two historic homes that have been transformed into nice Wanchese bed and breakfasts. Taking advantage of Roanoke Island hotels, the majority conveniently situated in the heart of Manteo’s residential downtown, puts you in the middle of the magic. When everyone else has left Roanoke Island for the day, step out of your Manteo, NC, hotel and relish the character of this island as you stroll around the quiet streets containing the sound of crickets singing, leaves rustling and occasionally the stray car passing by. If you find yourself on the waterfront, seeing the moonlit Manteo boardwalk is a treat in and of itself. The joy of waking up in a Roanoke Island hotel shows you a sunny side of the world that day-trippers seldom get to see.
