Currently we offer the following additional amenities for guests with disabilities:
We have one ADA accessible room that is available for guests with disabilities and is in the historic Pack House. The room has a wheelchair ramp and is located on the first floor with a private entrance. The bathroom has a walk-in shower with handheld showerhead and seating. The room is wide enough for a wheelchair to be used and we can remove or move furniture should the need arise.
We offer one ADA parking space near the main entrance of the Pack House on a level plane. Due to the historic nature of the inn including the date it was built and the date of our last remodel many of our common areas, business center areas and hospitality areas are not accessible to disabled guests. We are more than happy to meet you curbside and assist you with check-in and take you to your room.
The route from the parking area to your room is flat and is easy accessed by a wheelchair or walker.
Entranceway doors are 36 inches in width with large handle doorknobs for ease of opening.
Due to the historic nature of the Inn, we do not offer a public restroom in any of the check in area, common spaces or business center that is ADA accessible, as the business center as all of these spaces are accessible only by stairs. The bathroom in the guest room is accessible by a wheelchair and is just a short distance from the parking.
There are no braille signs anywhere in the inn.
The inn offers no elevators because of it’s historic nature, or braille features.
Food Service Areas
Our fine dining room, The Table at Inner Banks Inn has a ramp entrance and enough room inside to maneuver a wheel chair. Our dining tables are at the correct height for a guest in a wheelchair. We do not offer our menus in brail, but our servers are happy to go over all the menu items with guest and answer any questions. The historic nature of this building does not allow for bathrooms that are ADA accessible.
