Advice needed on a roadtrip to the Outer Banks in North Carolina

My wife and I are looking to go to the Outer Banks in NC in May 2011. Needed to know if anyone has taken the toll ferry between Cedar Island and Ocracoke Island and if so would there be any clearance problems bringing the Lotus onto the Ferry? Also,any forseen issues for the free ferry between Ocracoke Island to Hatteras Island?

Also, has anyone stayed at the Hampton Inn in Corolla?

Haven't ... but I've heard of others with similiar cars take 2 lenths of 2 x 8's to use for ramps if / when needed. Would take up a bit of room in the trunk, but worth the peace of mind.

If you're coming from MI you shouldn't need to ride the ferries at all unless its for fun. You can access the islands from the north by bridge

^ Right. Unless you're going to Ocracoke, you don't have to worry about a ferry ride.
