Our family absolutely loves Cape Hatteras Motel! My family vacationed here when I was a kid. Now, I bring my family every time we visit the Outer Banks. The view is marvelous, and the rooms are always in tip-top shape. I just booked our next stay at Cape Hatteras Motel, and the customer service was superb. Andy was very kind and generous to accommodate my family so that our stay is the most enjoyable. We are very much looking forward to our next stay here. I cannot recommend Cape Hatteras Motel enough! FIVE STARS!!!

Enjoyed our ocean front room here. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Room was clean and can't say enough about that view. Loved coffee on the porch every morning watching the sun rise. Would recommend and look to return and stay here.

This is a beautiful motel right on the ocean! It has very clean and comfortable rooms. Just Wisthe sound of the ocean each day and night is so relaxing. Great fishing on the beach only a few feet from your room is fabulous. The staff is awesome and very kind! I just wish they would put a broom in those rooms so WE could clean all the sand ourselves and give the staff a break. Lol I highly recommend that anyone looking for a relaxing vacation on the ocean in the OBX that you come to the Cape Hatteras Motel. The motel even took a photo of my husband fishing in the ocean one morning and it was labeled “The Cast”. I was crying with emotion at the beautiful impact of this picture.
