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

Stayed early Sept. We had to bump up our accommodations a day early and they we're very helpful and even upgraded us to a master suite for a few extra $ - a nice surprise. The location/views are hard to beat. Hearing the waves crash while you sleep is as good as it gets. Enjoyed a long evening on the... More

My husband and I stayed here the second week of September and loved it. Our room was clean and quite spacious. The view from the balcony actually brought tears to my eyes -- gorgeous! Although the motel is a no-frills kind of place, it has everything necessary for a relaxing and comfortable stay. We will definitely be returning.

Wonderful motel right on the sand, literally a stone's throw from the sea. With a location like this, it makes no sense to roll up in the evening and leave first thing in the morning - the beauty of this place is being on the beach and having close proximity to the sea. We DID show up late and planned... More

We gave Cape Hatteras Motel 5 stars because of the amazing location and the wonderful time we had. The accommodation itself is quite basic, although very clean and comfortable. We had a townhouse with bedrooms on the 1st floor and open plan kitchen living room on the 2nd. The bedrooms were fine, comfy beds, clean bathrooms and good showers Upstairs,... More

It is right on the beach and has the rustic beach look but the rooms are kept clean. You are pretty much guaranteed to see dolphins everywhere from your balcony. We were lucky enough to also watch two whales from ours. We had a fridge in our room which was nice. Important tip: most everything in town closes at 9pm.... More

Simple motel, right on the beach. Great view right from your own private deck. Maybe not the newest or cleanest but can't beat running right from your room into the ocean. Outdoor shower to rinse off. We had lower level room facing ocean and I thought our view would be blocked by the dunes but no; we had a clear... More

We stayed for 9 days in August. Accommodation is simple but spotlessly clean. Comfy king-size bed, efficient hot shower. Cleaned daily with towel changes. What sets this accommodation apart is it's oceanside location. Just walk down the stairs and you are on the beach. Rocking chairs on the deck to enjoy early morning tea and the fabulous OBX sunrise and... More

We stayed here Aug 1-6th and had a 2 bedroom oceanfront suite. This place was great! We are a family of 5 and had plenty of room & the kitchen was stocked with everything you could want and more. Staff was friendly and helpful, my youngest was super excited about the ice cream shop next to the motel office. There... More
