The king-size room was excellent and very clean. The bed was very comfortable with great pillows. There were no flat pillows. There is a flat-screen television mounted to the wall so you can stretch out and watch a show in the evening. There is a small refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker in the room. My room was on the third... More

Seeing as we went on an impromptu trip during the cold/off season, we were upgraded to a townhome, on the beach. Listened to the waves, watched the sunrise, and enjoyed the sounds of nature. Great experience. I prefer the scarce visitors opposed to the plethora of people during the busy summer months. Would be fun to rent an entire building... More

I took off a star for each of the first four hours I stayed in this room listening to the idiots above me. I'd never stay here again unless I could pick which room I stayed in. Unfortunately I was stuck below a family of idiots who have no clue what it's like to stay in a motel. Even as... More

I had originally given this a four but thinking about it, I could not have asked for a better place to wind down. The Room - Simple, clean, no rugs, which is a good thing since it is right on the ocean. Such a beautiful peaceful spot, a place to clear your head. There is a large flat screen on... More

As others have said, this place is not fancy. But if you're looking for a great place to unwind with the ocean literally at your door, this is the place. The oceanfront room I stayed in was clean and the bed was very comfortable. You just can't beat the sound and the view of the ocean right outside your window.... More

I was a litle skeptical of staying at a local owned hotel since some of them can be sketchy. This place is truly a top notch run business. The hotel room was clean and the beds are amazing. The ocean sings you to sleep at night on the oceanside rooms. We stayed in D214 and could not have asked for... More

If you want to experience the beach and the ocean, this is your place. The ocean is your front yard. It is simple, and It is perfect. The beds are comfortable and our unit was very clean. Nothing fancy, but who needs fancy, when you are on the beach… and you are really on the beach. They charge a fair... More

Wonderful place to stay for beach front and less than a weeks stay (can't rent a beach house for less than a week). Reserved the 2 bedroom suite/oceanfront and it was great. Nice living area with couple couches, a chair and flat screen t.v. Kitchen well furnished, master bedroom w/bath comfortable although the shower could use a little more water... More

The view is wonderful. We stayed 9/28/14 thru 10/3/14 we were on the second level beach front . The room was clean but had a mildew smell fabreeze helped the management needs to put dehumidifiers in the rooms. Our room needs new mini blinds and the bathroom sink ran slow. Forgetting these little complaints this was one of my most... More

This is a great place to stay in Buxton, NC. On the Ocean front, rocking chairs, no frills but clean. The lady that checked us in was A+ in service. She gave me a run down of each room available and let me decide which one I wanted. Beautiful view. It's not a fancy place, but it was nice. I... More
