This family run motel was a great place to stay while vacationing on the outer banks of North Carolina. The motel has the best rates in Buxton. It was clean and has a nice pool for families with children. Fishermen use this motel for close access to the offshore charters. The manager and clerks were very friendly and helpful with... More

You definitely get what you pay for with accommodations.The rooms were comfortable, but expect the basics, no "extras". It needs lots of updates, especially more outlets/three-prong outlets. There were 2 outlets in our room (room #10) - one was for the fridge/microwave (you have to unplug the microwave to plug in the floor lamp!) and the other outlet for the... More

Our first mistake was not deciding what was important for our one night on the Outer Banks, saving $30 or sleeping comfortable with adequate air-conditioning. One of us needed more cooling to the room than a wall inserted '1960's' air conditioner. For the extra $30 we should have chosen a motel down the road. We were upgraded from our 2... More

We stayed here three nights. It was not an entirely pleasant experience. (Before you read the rest of this review, please know that this is the first time we went to the Outer Banks, and we stayed in only one other, pricier hotel, so I can't really compare it to similar places in the area.) Worst part: the room had... More

I picked this motel because it was the cheapest motel I could find south of Nags Head. So, my expectations were not super-high. That being said, this place is pretty good. The rooms were a bit dated and there was some rust around the bathroom fixtures. The AC unit was fairly noisy. But the room was clean and the bed... More

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

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
