We arrived just two days before hurricane Arthur and decided to stay, since the locals were filling the rooms of this solid brick motel, known as the safest haven in Buxton in a storm. Now that the storm has passed, with no damage and no power or Internet interruptions,we are virtually the lone tourists in the town and on the... More

We were here for a wedding and the location was perfect so based on the great reviews we picked it. The rooms were clean but the bathroom was so small it was difficult to sit on the toilet. The staff were very nice and attentive. The high lite was the pool, which was lovely and had comfy seating so we... More

We appreciate guest comments and value timely comments and concerns. Our goal is to make you and your pets welcome, comfortable, and safe during your visit to the island. Considering the fact that you wished no housekeeping service during your seven night stay, and concerns were mentioned only on the evening of your 6th night, we regret not being able... More

This is an excellent place to stay for a very reasonable price. My room was clean and nicely decorated. The staff were polite and helpful with any questions I had. Room service made my bed and provided fresh towels daily. There's wifi and cable tv. The wifi was a good way to keep in touch with family as I had... More

We are avid fishermen and find Buxton to be central to all the great fishing locations on Hatteras Island. For the past 4 fishing trips to OBX, we have enjoyed staying at Cape Pines Motel which offers clean, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Relative to other accommodations in this small village, the motel is located in a quieter section and... More

We loved our stay at Cape Pines! Very clean, well decorated rooms! The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful with any questions about the area and local attractions. We only stayed two nights, but wished we could have stay a week! The motel is in close driving distance to many yummy restaurants and most important for us... close... More

Over the last 10 or 12 years, we've stayed in Buxton at least once and often twice per year. We've tried 4 of the available 7 motels and rank the Cape Pines as the best. We travel in the "shoulder seasons" of spring and fall, either as a couple, with family or meeting friends. Cape Pines is always meticulously clean... More

If not for trip advisor, I would never have booked this motel. From the road, it looks very old and dumpy. However, we enjoyed the room. It was very spacious and spotless. I loved the quilts on the very comfortable beds instead of the cheap bedspreads most cheaper hotels use. The room was HUGE compared to most standard Double Queen... More

We stayed a Friday and Saturday night over Memorial Day weekend. The room was attached to the main building on the 2nd floor and was non-smoking but the ashtrays outside on the tables on the walkway were in constant use so we had some smoking annoyance. We had requested a downstairs unit but were given an upstairs. The room was... More

While we're happy you enjoyed amenities such as the pool, it's disappointing to hear you felt inconvenienced at times. In the future, please let us know if there's anything we can do -- we'd always prefer to fix things in the moment to ensure you have an amazing time with us.
