My husband and I came for our honeymoon and were AMAZED at how clean, hospitable, and friendly everyone was. The location of the room was right on the beach, board games to borrow, and free coffee in the room :) It is the best example of how a family-owned business should operate. All staff were willing to go the extra... More

This may not be a fair review because we didn't actually stay on the property, but good customer service is a rare thing today and when I experience it, I want to share it. We had reservations for an oceanfront room for two nights here..... taking Flat Stanley on adventures for our granddaughter. When we arrived at approximately 3PM, a... More

What a great place to stay, especially during off season when it's quiet! Anytime actually! Owners are great and location is perfect. Sound and Sea are at their closest here. Opt for a room on ocean side of road. The Townhouses are perfect for a family with full kitchens and outstanding views. Ask for the Townhouse on end for more... More

Wow what a perfect location! We travelled here from the UK and heading south from Rodanthe, this motel is the first building you come across on your way into Buxton. This is our 3rd hotel on our trip and whilst the other 2 were very good indeed and slightly more up-market, this is the Motel/Hotel we would love to return... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our week at Cape Hatteras Motel. We mainly come to the OBX to fish so this place looked perfect. We were not disappointed when we arrived. The room was large and the bed comfortable. We had a kitchen that was stocked with everything we needed. Front desk was friendly and very helpful. My only... More

I stayed at The Cape Hatteras Motel from 10/11 thru 10/14 and our room was a two bedroom oceanfront suite. Since Buxton NC. is known for great fishing I don't expect anything fancy in a room since most of the time we are out fishing. However some basic things are expected. Our room was never cleaned during our stay. We... More

Occasionally we get a complaint about no housekeeping in our units with kitchens. This has always been the policy for hotels in our area. Over the years the majority of our guests have asked not to be disturbed, that they would rather come to the office and get what they need on their schedule rather than ours. Many of them... More

When we were planning our trip to Cape Hatteras we knew we wanted to be as close as we could to the ocean. After looking at all the reviews and a map of the area we decided to give the Cape Hatteras Motel a try. We didn't expect it to be anything terribly fancy and hoped it would be sufficient... More

The really only great thing about this place is the view. Wow! We were right on the beach, and it was a perfect view. Unfortunately, once you went in the room things weren't so good. The door does not have a dead bolt to lock which doesn't make you feel too safe. Overall, the interior was just run-down. There were... More

You were obviously given a key to a room that hadn't been serviced and for that I apologize. As for the deadbolt, I had maintenance check and apparently the locksmith missed a deadbolt when we replaced the doors this spring during our remodeling after Hurricane Sandy went through last fall. There is nothing the hotel can do about the internet.... More
