When you drive up you might wonder what you got yourself into. The hotel is weathered on the outside as many on the Outer Banks are. But open the door and you will be pleasantly surprised with a nice big clean room. The management is very nice and helpful giving me directions and information to the ferry service. We had... More

My wife and I spent a weekend surf fishing on Hatteras. The weather was great. This hotel was OK. It was what we expected. The rooms were clean, but worn. It appeared to be a former Days Inn that was renamed and renovated. If all you are looking for is a clean room to sleep, this will do fine.

Nothing fancy here...good bed, hot water, small towels, good sized room and quiet. Right on Highway 12 next to gas station, so no charm or water views. Clean and satisfactory. A little more expensive than the really old "Mom and Pop" motels and probably worth it.

I spent a four day weekend with my girlfriend in Buxton for a college suitemates wedding. We stayed in the Hatteras Island Inn with my bestfriend in their newly renovated suite. The suite was massive with a full kitchen, two bathrooms, a master bedroom complete with walk-in closet, and a spacious living room. We had direct access to the "lighthouse"... More

All I ever want is a hot shower and a good bed when I come down to Buxton every October. They covered that and more. Free coffee every morning and free wifi. Price was great and the stay was even better. Will be staying here again.

Stayed at this motel one night while visiting Cape Hatteras. Partially remodeled but old stained bathtub. Clean. Air conditioner did not work. Staff offered us another room but we were too tired to move. No breakfast.

This facility is in a great location. The staff during check-in was very friendly and helpful. She gave me a lot of advice about places to eat. She also told me a good place to fish. It turned out to be great advice because I caught fish all three days I was there. There is a bait shop and restaurant... More

This inn is a good value for the money. We went went there for the weekend just to chill out, swim and hang out at the beach, where you can also fish. Our room was clean and completely updated (new carpet, paint, bed linens, etc.) also included a microwave and a larger-than-expected fridge. The bed was very comfortable. The lobby... More

While taking a side trip on way back to Florida, my GPS had listed this as a Comfort Inn, and found out it wasn't . The staff was found to be quite friendly and helpful. We got a room near the office so we had Internet access. Others weren't so lucky.the room has been recently redecorated, and it has a... More

First, this is Hatteras Island - not Hilton Head. So the standard of hotels simply is different from other resort areas. This is a place for folks who want to be outside at the beach - surfing, swimming, fishing, flying kites or staring at the sea. Hotels need to be clean, have the basic amenities, and be able to stand... More
