This place was big, clean, and close to the ocean. The price was very nice also. Everyone we talked to was more than friendly. People at the desk were nice to work with from start to finish. I would recommend this place to everyone.

This hotel was literally right on the water, which was a huge plus and exactly what we were looking for. Unfortunately that was the only real plus to this property. The ocean view from our third floor king room was impeded by a boarded up building that evidently was a multi-room building at one point in time. They need to... More

This is our third year staying here and we love it. It is right on the water, quiet and if you enjoy walking on the beach, fishing or just relaxing...this is the place. They also have a pool for those brave souls who can swim in an unheated pool.

This was our first time staying in Buxton North Carolina.... we stayed in an oceanfront king suite with bunk beds on the lower level. Even though it was lower level, the dunes were low, so we still had a decent view of the ocean. The suite was very nice and very clean. The windows on the ocean side are dirty... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at Lighthouse View. We tried to economize somewhat on our trip to the Outer Banks so we chose the Standard King Motel Room. Although these rooms are on the parking lot side of the buildings, they actually seemed quieter. The beach is right around the corner of the building so we weren’t inconvenienced in... More

Stayed here twice in 2014 and was pleased both times. The staff were helpful in making the reservations. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The motel is conveniently located to several places to eat and if you are interested in fishing, you just have to go out the back door. The motel also offers a very nice fish cleaning... More

The king oceanfront room was quite small. It didn't seem dirty, but it was very old and dated (which made it feel dirty- even if it wasn't). Had a weird smell to it as well. I've stayed at nicer Super 8 motels than this. The outside decks are adjoined to one another - and we had a group of loud,... More

We have been staying at the Lighthouse View since 1994. We actually stayed in the Round house closest to the beach in 1996. Stayed in the main complex 3 times, and rented the Storm cottage last year and this year. Was very disappointed with our stay this time. Checked in on a Saturday afternoon... everything was fine. We noticed the... More

Staying here was one of my favorite vacations. Friendly staff, beautiful beach views, quiet neighborhood with fantastic restaurants within walking/biking distance. We road our bikes everywhere. It was a mellow trip in a mellow area....we went in the middle of summer too!! We stayed for 7 days in the One-Bedroom Villa...third floor. I was on the balcony most of the... More

I found this place on Trip-Advisor and am so glad that I did!! We stayed there for three nights and we loved it...its old school beach, like Buxton and we were oceanfront, 2nd floor and what a view! The sunrise woke us up each morning right in front of the hotel and we could watch the waves, dolphins and fishermen... More
