“Relaxing Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

The Lighthouse View is a great place to spend some relaxing time at the outer banks. Located in Buxton and very close to Hatteras lighthouse. The grounds are nice and clean, parking is sufficient and the rooms are cozy and clean. During our two night stay (10/18/12-10/20/12), we selected a King size room only with ocean view. Daily maid service is provided. The room contains a two seat dinette, king size bed, dresser with flat screen (not HD) TV, closet, one bath, 4 cup coffee pot, microwave and small refrigerator. The semi-private deck is a great place to kick back and enjoy the ocean view. All our room neighbors were nice and we enjoyed chatting with them in the mornings and evenings. The staff is friendly and helpful. A great place to stay.

Room Tip: If you're looking for more than just a room, the Lighthouse View offers efficiencies and cottage...

Stayed at the Oceanside round cottage2. Great location. Spacious cottage, very clean. Said moderate ocean view in ad, from terrace great view of the ocean. Was the top level of duplex 2. Perfect if you travel with 4 persons. Great value for the price. Would certainly rent this again.
For the price of 2 rooms in the motel, you get a beautiful cottage with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms,living room and kitchen.

Room Tip: Top level of duplex has ocean view

As Motels go i rate this highly, from arrival the Staff were really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the local area. Once you get over the bedspreads, the bedrooms were really clean, with fridge, microwave and plasma tv. Although i believe some have full kitchens.

Get an Ocean view its well worth the extra few dollars. Only downside was the pillows weren't great.

Room Tip: Ocean View all the way

I love Cape Hatteras and the only place I ever stay is the Lighthouse View. I brought my children here years ago and my husband and I just came back from a wonderful week. I highly recommend early Oct, weather was wonderful and there are no kids!!! We had a queen villa on the top floor. I lived on the deck. Can't say enough great things about the Outer Banks and this lodging.

Room Tip: Top floor for best view.

We stayed one night. Room was clean and a little dated. But it didn't matter to us. Had a ocean front room with a porch with chairs to watch the great sunsets. Just a tip, go over to Diamond Shoals next door and get their peel & eat shrimp to go. We grabbed our dinner and sat on the deck which was great. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would stay here again. Great price for a place on the beach.
