Before I get started, I need to mention my review is from our stay this past June. My family and I were traveling down the coast. They had never been to the outer banks. I was looking for a place to stay the night that wouldn't break the bank. Accommodations are slim to begin with. Looking for a place that's... More

I spent 3 nights here during the winter season for a little workshop. First the people at the desk are wonderful. Very friendly and accommodating. My room was upstairs. It had two beds, a refrig, microwave, and coffee pot. Also had a ironing board and a couch. It was big, clean and very comfortable. I could live in this place... More

We decided to travel a day early to Hatteras and spend the night at the Hatteras Island Inn. The smell of the room wasn't the greatest but we were there a couple days after the island got a lot of rain, so it kind of had a musty smell. The pool was wonderful for the kids, very clean and was... More

I'm so glad you came in a little early to the Island and decided to stay with us! I am concerned about the musty smell you referred to because we are very diligent to be sure that all rooms are freshened up every day even if they will be unoccupied. Heavy rain combined with humidity can sometimes cause a similar... More

If you ever wondered what it was like to vacation when you were a kid, this is the place to rediscover it. This is a series of cottages from the land before cable TV. There is nothing wrong with them but the Hilton it is not. Need a place to stay on the Island? This is as good as any... More

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.

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.
