we booked for the weekend and reached pretty late. The keys were kept in the locker and we didn't have any problem checking in. The sea facing room balconies virtually end up on the sea beach so it was a enjoyable stay and value for money facilities. Recommended if you want to stay in Buxton and don't want to sell... More

Perfect oceanfront room, everything needed for comfort and fun, perfectly clean and odor free room, great bed, nice private deck. Love, love, love it. Quaint town, coffee in rooms, great detailing on the woodwork in room.

Been going to the Lighthouse View for around 15 years now....never think of going anywhere else, although our oceanfront accommodations are getting closer & closer to the ocean!! What a view!! Great pool too if you don't want to be on the beach & don't care for ocean swimming. This place is close to everything in Buxton.. A short drive... More

Quick summary: Location- a stone's throw from Hatteras lighthouse and right on the beach. Close to Ocracoke Island but a fair distance from Nags Head. Rooms- we had a king ocean view and it was perfect for the sunrise. Amenities- negligible (wafer size soap and small shampoo, one cup coffee maker with one cup..literally!) Staff- friendly Overall...would stay again

This a great place to stay with a spectacular oceanfront view! Very clean and modern rooms. And best of all, a great staff! Just make sure you call ahead if you're planning on a late arrival. In Buxton, most of the hotels are locally owned and close their office after 9pm.

Mostly second and third floor rooms with a few other unique cottages. Weathered cedar shingles give the place a homey feel. "Bayside" rooms have a very limited "bay" view. Splurge and get an oceanfront room. You won't believe how close the ocean is! Clean and comfortable rooms. Will certainly stay here again.

We stayed here during a weekend trip to the Outer Banks. We happened to chose this hotel because of their ratings and were luckily able to get a street side room as a walk-in. No complaints. The room served our needs and was clean. If the opportunity arose, we would stay here again. The price was reasonable.

The lighthouse view hotel is awesome! They have multiple buildings with a bunch of rooms right on the ocean. The rates are reasonable in the off season but if you plan on coming down for the weekend... Book your room in advance. If not you probably will not get a room!

We were able to find this place through a Groupon deal, and an oceanfront room at that!! Very clean, comfortable mattress, and even a couple of clotheslines with pins to hang wet swimsuits and towels on! A very efficient drying system really, our swimsuits and towels were dry in about 2 hours. We were so excited to be so close... More

Staff was super friendly and we originally started out in a standard room however the AC wouldn't work and we had just lugged all our stuff up the stairs. I called the front desk ASAP. The lady apologized for the trouble and moved us next door immediately. Let me tell you we definitely got an upgrade and she made our... More
