Fodor's Expert Review Blackbeard's Lodge

111 Back Rd., Ocracoke Island, North Carolina, 27960, USA

Step into Ocracoke history—and be greeted by a life-size statue of Blackbeard himself and a front desk shaped like the bow of the sloop Adventure—at this classic hotel that first opened as the Wahab Village Hotel in 1936. Apartments and suites are spread across several buildings, connected by a maze of walkways and exterior stairways. There's an outdoor pool, a game room, and it's next door to two of the island's best restaurants.

PROS

  • game room with billiards, foosball, and air hockey
  • fun pool scene
  • lots of porches and communal spaces

CONS

  • many guests come to party
  • fills up with families during summer months
  • the rustic exterior and old-school decor isn't at all fancy
