“Quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

We celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary here recently. We were in the oceanfront king room. It was off season, so it was extremely quite. Our room was extremely clean. And the view was awesome. We enioyed our stay, and maybe next year we will rent a cottage closer to the ocean.

We were driving from NYC to Key West and in one night we saw this lodge on the way and we decided to rest there. Beautiful decision. It's not luxurious but really cozy, wood made with stunning view rooms of the ocean. The experience of sleeping with wave sounds, waking up with the birds and a amazing sunshine is something we will remember. Just a few steps from the beach. The only down side is that to get in our room, I had to carry our luggage through a soft sand and then climb 3 floors by stairs.

Just got home from spending the weekend here. We stayed in an oceanfront suite. It had a full kitchen, living room, bedroom with king size bed and also a loft with twin beds and its own half bath. The ocean view was wonderful from our semi-private patio. It was a little outdated, but was very clean and roomy. The kitchen had fairly new appliances. Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Stay in an oceanfront room on the 2nd or 3rd floor for the best view!

This is our 6th stay here after a hectic first part of the school year. We stayed in Round House #242 for 6 nights. The views are spectacular! The kichen is well equipped and the entire place very clean. We had free use of a washer/dryer. People are friendly. If you are a cat lover, be sure to bring some cat yummies.

My husband and I just returned from a 5 night stay here (oct. 21 to 26, 2012) and loved it! The room was very clean and roomy (we stayed in the queen efficiency 3rd floor). It is a little outdated, but again very clean. The views are amazing. We saw the sunrise every morning from our balcony (which was semi-private but fine). We also had beautiful weather, not a cloud in the sky all week and highs in the low to mid 70's. This place was a quiet, old time seashore getaway. We are from the east coast and it is nothing like our beaches. If you are looking for a luxury resort this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a very clean, quiet, relaxing vacation come here. You won't be sorry.

Room Tip: They are all ocean front, but we stayed on 3rd floor for the best view. Be advised, there is no elev...

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.

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
