After leaving MD we wanted to hit the NC Outer Banks. Our chosen location was just north of Hatteras in Buxton. This motel is about a block from the entrance to the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and recreation area. The good reviews do reflect what we found here. We booked a king bed, which came with a full Refrigerator, smaller than... More

My husband, our two kids, and i just returned from our 4 night stay here. We'd previously stayed at the Cape Pines when coming down for the several years prior, but this will be our new "go to". It is an older building, so don't expect The Hilton. However, if you want a super cheap, friendly, safe, clean place to... More

This is my first ever review but had to say this hotel deserved a glowing review. Just had gotten married with a baby on the way so we really didn't have a whole lot of money to spend on vacation. I had researched prices on the internet and thought I would give them a call. I had spoke with a... More

We just checked into the Falcon Motel and we were pleasantly surprised! Room was cleaned prestinely. Yes, it is older but smells clean. Location is great..walking distance to restaurants, shops and an ice cream shop. Kimberly, who is at the front desk was a wealth of information of places to eat and visit. Even gave us information on a playground... More

We had planned on sleeping in our tent at the Hatteras camp ground however it was extremely hot so we started looking for other sleeping arrangements...We came across this motel as soon as we pulled out of the camp grounds. Surprisingly they had vacancies and the price was just right. Hotel looks a little run down but apparently they are... More

Newbies to the obx we weren't sure where to stay that was clean and affordable. The staff from the hotel were accommodating and the hotel was very clean. This is a small motel being remodeled and while the carpet smelled a little musty an excellent value for the money. It was quiet and the pool was very nice. Easy walk... More

We have stayed here three of the past 6 weekends. We believe it's truely the best deal in Buxton. It's a quiet motel with clean room and a friendly staff. Kim, who works the front desk, is always smiling and her customer service skill are outstanding. I plan to head to Buxton a lot throughout the summer and will always... More

This motel was the perfect price for what we needed.....LOCATION. The staff is hard-working, kind, and welcoming. However, I will say that the website room photos are nowhere close to representing the room we had. This is obviously a very old establishment (in the process of a room-by-room renovation) and everything in our room was very dated (pre 1970s) including... More

Came for a fishing get a way leaving with a smile. If your looking for the Ritz on a budget this isnt for you. If you are looking for a comfortable clean and functional place to stay keep reading.

I simply chose this place because it is the cheapest place I can think of going near the Lighthouse without a significant drive of anything more than an hour. I have always stayed here when I visit up to 2 times a year with my family. I get what in a room; a microwave, a fridge, a coffee pot, and... More
