Over the last 15 years, my husband and I have been going to this motel for a week whenever a summer vacation allows us to get down to the Outer Banks, NC. It never fails to be a great week, and is one of our very favorite spots. This motel isn't fancy. It is just right - with all the... More

Great picturesque views of the Atlantic Ocean. Quiet family friendly beach. Within walking distance or a short drive to fresh seafood. Close proximity to the lighthouse. Visit the neighboring towns for shopping and even more food. A no frills getaway.

We were in suite 516 & I believe the best suite. Beautiful front view of the ocean,roomy front porch with chairs to enjoy the sight/sound of the waves. The suite was very roomy, couches were sooo comfy as well as the queen bed. Suite was clean & kitchen was well stocked with daily items, towels were not the cheap ones... More

We loved our stay so much that we were planning next years vacation before we even left. We had an oceanfront king room on the top floor and the view was amazing! We woke up every morning to watch the sun rise. Our access to the beach was right outside of our back door and down the back stairs. Very... More

We have stayed there several times and are always happy with the accommodations. The king suites are great for a couple and one or two kids. Well appointed, very clean front and back door to nice oceanfront view. We had some noisy girls the one night we stayed in a suite, they quieted down when I asked nicely! They also... More

Our family of four stayed here over the July 4th holiday for the first time. We had originally booked just a double room as that was all available, but were pleasantly surprised when we got there and we were offered an upgrade for a small amount to a queen suite with a murphy bed and kitchenette, still oceanfront! We were... More

The full kitchen was perfect for breakfast, lunch and a few of our dinner's. our front porch got used quite often( cold drinks,sunshine and listening to the waves) Never had a problem with loud and out of control party goer's,because they...

Excellent and CLEAN accommodations on the Outer Banks. Beach is mere steps away. Quiet area, great place to relax. Full kitchen makes saving money even easier. The only downside was the room I had. It was in the middle of the building, so I had (what sounded like) a herd of elephants above me. The balconies are connected, so the... More

We have been staying at Lighthouse View for our week-long summer vacation for 6 years - we love it here. The location is perfect and the unit is clean, comfortable and everything we need. The staff is wonderful! Great place for families to stay!
