we stayed for two nights and had a great experience.The staff were all friendly the room very clean and well equipped.The location for fisherman was ideal.Is is a short walk to many of the marinas and restaurants.The outdoor balcony looking over the sound was a nice touch.

These people are the greatest. My sister and I loved the balcony, the beds ,& the bathroom. The small kitchen area suited our needs. The fridge was better than most small beach motel types. My only wish would be that the maid service make the beds, but they did supply fresh towels. The owner let us check in early since... More

We planned our summer vacation around my boyfriend's 52nd birthday and rented a house in Hatteras but needed a place to stay one night before we could check into the house. The Breakwater was near by and we decided to give it a try. What a great find! All of the rooms at the inn (not fishermans quarters) have a... More

Nice place with clean rooms and friendly staff. Waterfront on Sound, not near ocean but a short drive. Nice pool. I stayed in the newer sound front rooms (not the older fisherman's) and I thought it was fine. There is a little mildew smell but all the hotels down here have that...it's a damp harsh environment to keep dry when... More

I have been visiting Hatteras Village for about 25 years now and I have found that I feel completely at home each time I stay at the Breakwater. The staff always remember me (AND MY DOG) and go out of there way to make sure we have a relaxing and perfect trip. Whether it be opening up my room because... More

We planned a mini vacation so that our son could see the Hatteras Lighthouse in person, after designing e lighthouse for a school project. For a family of four wanting "little" things to do and lots of beach time, your place was great!! It was clean and comfortable from the second we checked in. Everyone we encountered was super friendly... More

My husband and I often come to Hatteras to celebrate our anniversary every June. For the past 2 years we have been staying at the inn. Located right on a marina it appears to have a thriving fishing/boating community. My husband and I are not into fishing but we like that the sound side beaches are close as well as... More

My friends and I attended our annual offshore fishing trip and stayed in the fisherman's quarters at this hotel. That section is a bit rough but most guys don't care as we are just happy to be fishing and away from home. After a great trip we had some of our fish prepared at their resturaunt and the preparation was... More

We were headed for Ocracoke but after waiting all day in the ferry line hoping the ferries would resume service, they told us around 3:30 that the ferries would not be running again that day due to the high winds. So we needed a place to stay for the night. We used to rent cottages in Hatteras years ago but... More
