Graph of Manteo, NC Hotel Prices for Next 20 Days

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Manteo, NC discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Manteo hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Manteo takes its name from a Croatan native. Manteo the person had been westernized by the English during a trip to London in 1584 where he became a liaison between his tribe and the Roanoke Colony of settlers. After his christening, Manteo became known as Lord of Roanoke, making him the first Native American to receive a nobility title.

The area now known as Manteo was where Virginia Dare, the first American-born English child, was born. When the colonists disappeared, it also went down in history books as the site of The Lost Colony's last known location. Today, visitors can discover this mysterious history at various historical sites and events, including the annual outdoor musical about the Lost Colony.

Whatever your reason for visiting Manteo and Roanoke Island, it's important to find the right hotel to serve as your home away from home.

When is the best time to visit Manteo, NC?

The best time to visit the Outer Banks is during the spring and fall shoulder seasons. Summers are ideal as far as activities and events, but hotel rates skyrocket from June through August, and many accommodations are booked solid. If you do manage to score a room during the summer, you'll have an opportunity to experience The Lost Colony musical, the Outer Banks Food Truck Showdown, OBX Watermelon Festival, and the Outer Banks Pirate Festival.

From March through May, hotel rates remain low even as local activities kick into high gear. If you're trying to stick to a budget during your trip to Manteo, spring provides the perfect chance to soak up the sun and attend Taste of the Beach, the Annual Duck & Wine Festival, the Bluegrass Island Festival, and other key events. The only downside, however, is that spring break attracts families and college students looking for a seaside getaway, so you may have to contend with crowded beaches.

With fall ushering in a new academic year, beaches throughout the Outer Banks are less crowded and quieter from September through November. High temperatures tend to remain in the low 80s in September, but hotel rates drop considerably. Key events to look forward to this time of year include the OBX Triathlon, the Outer Banks Seafood Festival, and the Duck Jazz Festival.

Don't discount a trip to Manteo and the Outer Banks in the winter. Most of the area's outdoor activities remain open year-round, and hotel rates hit rock bottom, making your getaway easier on your checkbook. Keep in mind, however, that some area restaurants and small shops close for the winter. Even so, you can enjoy a lovely vacation in Manteo no matter the season.
