Visitors who want to be close to the beach, but who don’t necessarily want to pay the prime oceanfront prices, can enjoy an easy-going respite close to the shore with a stay at the Parkerton Inn. Located just inland of Emerald Isle in the small town of Cape Carteret, guests will be close to those cool ocean shorelines, a number of golf courses, and unique destinations like Downtown Swansboro, while enjoying just enough amenities to stay comfortably for a night, weekend, or even a week.

The Parkerton Inn is low-key and simplified, but has a nice host of amenities to keep guests accommodated, including a seasonally operational outdoor pool with a wide sundeck, a large parking area for vehicles of all sizes, and free coffee in the lobby every morning for a bright start to every day. The individual rooms are streamlined but comfy, with free wireless internet access, cable TV, microwaves and mini-fridges, and even kitchenettes in special upgraded rooms / suites. Both the oceanfront and the region’s favorite small towns are an easy drive away, and several golf courses are found in the immediate surrounding neighborhood as well, providing plenty of entertainment options. With a modest price tag and a central setting, the Parkerton Inn can accommodate all varieties of budget-conscious travelers.
