Whenever the wife and I are at OBX, which we visit 2x per year, we make every effort to stay here. The rates are great, the rooms are always clean, and the location is even better, especially if peace and quiet are what you are after. We definitely recommend this place for any OBX stay, be it a weekend or... More

Mrs. Carol, the owner/operator of this establishment, is by far the most unpleasant and unprofessional individual, that I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with. I tried canceling a reservation for one of the Tower Cottages, and Mrs. Carol was less than helpful, even though I was cancelling three weeks ahead of time. Although I was not informed of... More

We stayed the first week of off season in August. It was very affordable and we had a stove, microwave and fridge to make meals. Located in a quiet town - Buxton. Right on the beach. My husband and I walked the beach every night and morning. Fattys icecream is right across the street. YUM! and the kayack tours are... More

We have started the last three years at this motel. It is older, but the price is great. The staff is nice. This year our cabin was so close to the ocean - you can almost touch the waves. We had an air conditioning issue... Let mgmt know and when we came back to the room... There was a window... More

Our room's (5) a/c was off when we arrived, and it was 84 degrees when we got in there. We were told to park "under" the building with our corresponding room number. If we had been able to squeeze between the other cars, there was a few inches of sand in there, that I wasn't comfortable with trying to put... More

My GF and I just returned from 3 nights staying at the Outer Banks Motel in Buxton. We arrived on Fri morning just around noon and were able to get into our room right away. We were given room 102 which had a partial ocean view from the screened porch. Everything at check-in was as expected and we had no... More

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
