We were hoping to find a charming place to stay on the Outer Banks. We did not want to be in a chain or anything like one. We are on the 3rd floor of this shingled building right on the beach. The views are fantastic! And the sound of the surf is a perfect accompaniment to the view, to going... More

We were making a driving tour of the Outer Banks. We had one night at this hotel and didn't have enough time to judge the full experience of staying here. We had a third floor ocean front room. The view was great - the waves were breaking a few feet from the hotel with only a small beach area in... More

I picked this hotel for my stay at the Outer Banks cause I wanted to be close to the ocean but not with so many visitors like in Nags Head for example. This is the perfect place if you like to hear nothing but the waves on the beach. The owners are very friendly and helpful and you feel that... More

Owner needs to reload his brain. He made a fuss over my service dog. My life line. Whom stayed without a word in the past. Owner said he never allows dogs in 30 years.hogwash my highly trained dog was befrieded by a Pug in our last vist. Never again. All disabled friends there many nicer affordable options. FORGET THIS PLACE.

I was not informed that the gentleman's dog was a service dog until I saw him with it and questioned him. I have owned the Cape Hatteras Motel for over 40 years and we have a no pet policy. Our guests like this as they can be assured no animals have been in their room previous to their arrival. Many... More

Cape Hatteras Motel has great oceanfront views! The 2 bdrm efficiency was roomy. We enjoyed having 2 bathrooms with a family of 5. The kitchen was fully equipped to cook. If you are looking for a private balcony this hotel did not have that in the oceanfront rooms. People can walk back and forth in front of your room. The... More

Hi Dana! We are glad that you enjoyed your ocean view. None of our rooms have a private balcony. They are long decks that everyone that stays on your floor share. We do offer rocking chairs for each room to enjoy seeing and listening to the ocean. During the time frame that you were here there was a major fishing... More

Amazingly beautiful location and can't praise the staff enough. Friendly and very welcoming. Stayed in Building C, Room 310. It's ocean front. Rocking chairs when you step out of the room and a million dollar view. Would highly recommend ocean front rooms. Loved, loved, loved our stay there.

Just an amazing view, building C 2nd floor. Rocking chairs on balcony great. Rusted barely turning microwave not too great. Rusted coffee pot stand. Towel pretty thin as is the bedding.

This place is old enough to feel authentic and clean enough to feel great. We have rocking chairs on our balcony and can enjoy the surf right outside. The inn is Easy to find at the north side of Buxton just on the ocean, although the office is on the Sound side of the highway.

I was here looking for places to stay for fishing this fall. When found was clean and staff was friendly and had plenty of information about the area. The room was third floor but view was great and room was clean, would suggest screens on Windows. Other than that a great place to unwind.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Cape Hatteras Motel. We are in the process of repairing/replacing all screens. The northeast winds we get in the fall and winter are brutal to screens especially in the oceanfront rooms. Please come back and see us soon! Sincerely, Cape Hatteras Motel 1-800-995-0711 More

Ok, the first thing you should know is that this is an old hotel. The room we had was basic but fulfilled all of our necessities. The bathroom is very large! Our room was carpeted and the floor was caving in right in front of the door. But, the sound of the ocean at night was spectacular...once we could get... More
