The gentlemen in the review is right...rude staff that blame you for any problems. The extra fee for credit card is ridiculous for the over- priced motel. A/C does not work. They bring a window unit that does not work either. Blinds so old they don't close so no privacy. Beach access is great and they do have hot water,... More

Our family of 4 took a short vacation to Buxton and really enjoyed staying at the Outer Banks Motel. We stayed in the suites which were just across the beach road from the regular hotel rooms. Beach access was very easy, and the suites were comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. This isn't the Ritz Carlton, but it... More

A perfect summer rental, on the ocean, convenient to so many things, the location is perfect. It's an hour drive up to Nags Head, but that's exactly what we were looking for, away from the crowds. We had a group of 17 and it was perfect for all of us. Accommodations were clean, the plumbing could have used some updating.... More

We selected this rental for the view. And a view it had. We were right on the beach with waves crashing just outside the door. The money is the first bad thing we noticed. If you use credit card you pay a $35.00 fee. They don't take checks when you arrive. It is cash or pay the fee. Who carries... More

If you are looking for a place to take a shower and lay your head this is definitely the honey hole. Some of the properties are dated and moldy. With that said, we are repeat guests of this property and most likely will NOT be staying again. Why you ask, well it's all in the attitude and the service. My... More

Nice hotel right on the beach. The rooms are very clean comfortable. We stayed in the efficiency room due to the fact the place was full. Had everything you need close by and the staff was friendly too. This is my first visit to the outer banks but if I come back I would stay here if it's available. Many... More

I recently stayed at this motel two weeks ago for a fun weekend with my best friends and I have to say it was a great experience. We were in a suite-style set up that had 3 bedrooms, 3 bath, and a common area including a kitchenette. The service was great, staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, and extremely something... More

We stayed here on our trip to Hatteras. We had our 4 children with us, so we needed a place big enough for us all. We stayed in one of the two bedroom suites. It had a livingroom and kitchen. Decor was dated but it was clean. No complaints.

It was my first time visiting the Outer Banks this past weekend. Stayed at the Outer Banks Motel in a suite room with a bunch of friends. The location is WONDERFUL. Right on the beach, not crowded AT ALL. There was also a pool and hot tub option. The suite we stayed in was great. Very beachy and complete with... More

Just stayed here this past weekend. Extremely satisfied with the location. Right on the beach, within walking distance of food, shops, and treats. Also within walking distance of the tallest light house in America. The front desk service was phenomenal as well. Any question I needed answered or service I needed they provided with a big smile and a wonderful... More
