WATCH YOUR CREDIT CARD STATEMENT! They over charged me for a room back in June of 2015. Are several calls and them dragging their feet for months they now say they have switched owners and there is nothing that can be done. The Manager was horrible to deal with and advised me to file an unauthorized charge with my credit... More

Last year for new years we made a "island hopping" trip for new years... Wilmington one night, Havelock/Ft Macon the next, then Outer Banks/Buxton, then nags head. After an afternoon of driving from Fort Macon and stopping by the lighthouses along the way, we had booked a room at Hatteras Island inn. The hotel was one of the few still... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! We greatly appreciate your comments, I will share them with the entire staff. The Cape Lookout Lighthouse has been recently painted , it's a beautiful sight! This year there are quite a few more restaurants choosing to remain open during our winter months, here on Hatteras Island. We look forward... More

We booked with another motel using an online service, but when a storm flooded the area, and I was unable to communicate to confirm the motel was still open, the online service switched our reservation to Hatteras Island Inn. Reading the other reviews left me somewhat concerned about what we would encounter. However, we were pleasantly surprised by how nice... More

Positives: Beds clean and comfortable, front desk very gracious and helpful Negatives: Bed and TV is all you get. Furniture in our room (111) was worn out and yard sale quality in the early 60s. No Wi-Fi!!! Doesn't make sense in this modern era. This not what I hoped for on a vacation, an emergency maybe? Will not return to... More

We stayed in Room 202 and it was very nice. I was pleased with the decor as well as the softness of the beds. The sheets and blankets seem to be new. The room was clean. WE enjoyed the pool as well as the short walk to the ocean. My son and I climbed the steps to the observation tower... More

This is a charming hotel near to attractions and loads of good eating places. It is about 50 yards from the beach. I stayed with my wife on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. I thought the value was not too bad though no breakfast was served. A pleasant stay and rooms were quite comfortable.

My wife and I decided to do a "last minute" getaway to the Outer Banks for a night (Sunday night into Monday, Labor Day). I called a favorite place of ours in Kill Devil Hills, but they wanted $260 per night. So, I started looking farther south (I prefer Hatteras Island, anyway), and found a vacancy in Buxton at the...

Friendly and accommodating staff, very outgoing and willingness to help and direct. There are plenty of places to eat and next to awesome restaurants. Although it does not have complete view of the beach, The beach it's just a few steps away! Will stay here again!

This was in the best location to do what my husband and I wanted to do. The staff is super friendly and the lookout is something not to miss, the view is great!
