Just an amazing view, building C 2nd floor. Rocking chairs on balcony great. Rusted barely turning microwave not too great. Rusted coffee pot stand. Towel pretty thin as is the bedding. Walked in and first thing I saw was a wobbly chair with a big cut in the cushion, not a sitting chair that's for sure. The view makes this... More

This place is old enough to feel authentic and clean enough to feel great. We have rocking chairs on our balcony and can enjoy the surf right outside. The inn is Easy to find at the north side of Buxton just on the ocean, although the office is on the Sound side of the highway.

I was here looking for places to stay for fishing this fall. When found was clean and staff was friendly and had plenty of information about the area. The room was third floor but view was great and room was clean, would suggest screens on Windows. Other than that a great place to unwind.

Ok, the first thing you should know is that this is an old hotel. The room we had was basic but fulfilled all of our necessities. The bathroom is very large! Our room was carpeted and the floor was caving in right in front of the door. But, the sound of the ocean at night was spectacular...once we could get... More

The hotel itself is nothing to write home about. It's old and that shows in some of the rooms. The rooms are clean, but are basic - bed, small table with chairs, a small refrigerator and a small microwave. There are rocking chairs on the balcony which is a nice touch. One of the hotel buildings is right on the... More

Very peaceful motel location in a gorgeous area. Staff was unobtrusive and friendly. We stayed during off season, so the area itself was a little shuttered up, but we still enjoyed our stay. Only complaint would be the cleaning staff leaving door open while they cleaned--they let several flies in!

We stayed here 2 nights. It was good. The beds are a little firm for my taste, but the pillows were comfortable, and made up for it. It's an older hotel, and you can definitely tell, but we weren't looking for the Ritz. We just wanted to be close to the beach. We originally had an oceanside room, but a... More

We spent 2 nights at this motel on the second level. It is literally on the beach and with the windows open at night, the waves were sleep enducing. The management was very helpful and accomodating. It was a very comfortable room with plenty of space. The day we checked out the high tide along with high winds actually caused... More
