We have vacationed in the Outer Banks for at least 25 years. This year, we decided to take a 2nd vacation getaway and we're looking at a long weekend in October. We made our reservation, with the mananager Inez on Wednesday. I received a call Wednesday night that there might be a problem because our room was double booked, but... More

We ended our vacation by staying three days at Lighthouse, and the experience was so pleasurable. Our room was on the third floor, and the view of the ocean was worth the price and the walk up the stairs. This place is convenient to restaurants, shops, and (of course) the Hatteras lighthouse. We were able to walk on the beach... More

We stayed here in the Apr-May 2013 time-frame and again July 6-12 2014. We were delayed a day by hurricane Arthur but the Buxton area looked like i was unscathed. A lot more to do in the area during the summer, all shops and eateries are open. Last year we had to drive a ways up north to get to... More

We spent a few nights at Lighthouse View in July. It was as expected. We saved some dollars and stayed in a parking lot view room, which was fine since we weren't in the room much except to shower and sleep. I liked having the little fridge. Staff was good. This place is located near a couple of places to... More

Stayed here for a few days while passing through and loved it. It's fairly average accommodation but the location on the ocean / beach is great. Would recommend stopping here. Walking distance also to shops and coffee places. Staff are friendly.

Our trip was cut short because of Arthur. The staff was friendly and kept us informed on road openings and closers. The room was clean but the view was breathtaking. It a good value for the money. If you stay pay the extra money to stay on the ocean side.

We are a beach loving family and couldn't have picked a better location for our first trip to the Outer Banks!! The staff was very accommodating and personable! Rooms we very clean! The beach was right out the back door to our suite! Can't wait to come again!

Checking out today after spending a week in room 624 at Lighthouse View, and had a great experience. Clean rooms and bathrooms, air-conditioning, microwave, mini-fridge... everything you'd want for a weekly stay. Generally couples and families staying here, so it is pretty quiet. The beach is right outside the door, with a perfect view of the sunrise and that calming... More

We stayed for a week in June. The weather was nice. The view was very nice. Since we have never been there before, I relied on their advertisement video. It is misleading. There really is no ocean to swim in, meaning it gets deep immediately. There is the beach to walk on. I certainly would never allow my children more... More

My husband and I recently spent a few days in the outer banks on the way to a family wedding in NC. What a wonderful find this property is. We couldn't have been happier. It was clean and comfortable and direct ocean front. It doesn't get any better and reasonably priced. The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful. We hope... More
