“Nice stay!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

It is a clean motel with the standard of a Days Inn. The cleaning is good, the staff friendly. The view on the ocean is great and therefore you pay. There's not much around, you better eat at Hatteras harbour (Dinky's) or in Avon (Oceana's). We would return.

We Love renting out the round cottage that is right on the beach area. If you are looking for complete rest and relaxation; a get away from your busy life; a place where you will forget about the office environment, then this is the place for you. The cottage that we rent out yearly, is always clean and a great value if you rent out for one week. It's stocked with dishes, pots/ pans, glass ware, scrubbies, vacuum cleaner, broom, dust pan, fly swatter, extra clean linen and towels, toiletries, 2 tv's; large one in living room and one in the master bedroom. The cottage has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king size bed, vanity and full bathroom; the second bedroom has 2 full size beds and vanity area. The porch area is large with plenty of seating area.the view of the ocean is right in front of you and just steps away. The sounds of the ocean can be heard from both rooms and of course from the kitchen and living room; with a spectacular view from the kitchen and living room. There is a place to scale and clean your fish; Sandy feet? No problem. There is a spicket just for that too located on the cottage. You have to go to the place called " The Orange Blossom". It's a bakery down the street (6:30am-11am) that boast a huge pastry for 2 called an " Apple Ugly" Not for diabetics or those counting calories! The Light House and the " Sound" are within 5 miles or less. It's a fishing area, so all the stores are there. You will not find a McDonald's, Starbucks, etc. in that area. This is strictly a mom/pop style area along with memorabilia. Take a flashlight so that you can go along the beach at night and check out the sand crabs of various sizes. October, is the best time to go if you need absolute peace ( no kids) or if there are some, it's on the weekend. The staff is friendly and will accommodate your needs. If you need " Stress Relief", this is the place.

This hotel is right on the beach, popular with bikers, fishermen and surfers. The rooms are basic, dated but in working condition. Our visit was in October but the hotel was almost full. The location is very close to Cape Hatteras. I would recommend this hot

I Love this house!! I wish I could live there... We spent one week in mid September. The house was very clean and had beautiful views.. Loved the deck off of the one bedroom. Slept like a baby listening to the ocean... Love this place!!! Lighthouse View is the only place we stay when we visit OBX..

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We had a 3rd floor oceanfront room. The room was very clean and the view was amazing. You could hear the sound of the ocean inside your room even with the windows closed which was very relaxing. The hotel location was great. And yes, they are losing their beach but they obviously have no control over that. We climbed Bodie Island Lighthouse for the first time and climbed Cape Hatteras Lighthouse as well. We went to Ocracoke for the day. We saw some awesome sunrises from our semi private deck. (I've attached a photo of our favorite sunrise during our stay.) The next time we're in the Buxton area we will DEFINITELY stay here again.

Hotel was your typical beach hotel. It was right on the beach. It is very sad but the beach in front has been damaged due to storms. They are trying their best to save it with sand bags. But all you have to do is walk to your left or right and have plenty of beach and lots and lots of shells. Very nice pool we never used because hey your @ the beach. The rooms were very clean. The TV was funny because of the sound. But who goes to the beach to watch TV. The front desk was very friendly and helpful. Be sure to go to Frisco beach to see the surfers and take the ferry to Orcacoke. Eat @ Diamond Shoals next door and eat pizza Anglelo's. Rusty's was good but over priced. If we ever came back to Buxton we would stay here .

Room Tip: If you want to save money stay on street side.
