“Beautiful View, Simple & Clean”
Reviewed July 29, 2010

We stayed in one of the round cottages on the top floor for three nights. We had a smoking unit (all that was available), so I was a little worried about the smell, but no problem. Our unit was clean and had a kitchen and a laundry room downstairs. Loved sitting on the deck and being so close to the beach and the pool. My teenage girls, ages 13 and 17 loved this place. My oldest wants me to bring her and some friends down for a "senior trip", HA! One thing I was unaware of was that they do provide linens and towels, but they do not replace them. You have to wash your own towels, which wasn't too bad, but a few more to start off with would be helpful. (We were only there for three nights, so not too big of a deal. And quite possible they would have provided a few more if asked. Just something to be aware of if you are staying in the cottages. I probably would have brought extra washcloths.) Great place, great town, hope to come back!

For more than $200/night you'd expect the room to be cleaned daily. NO, they clean it before you check in and only after you check out! You'd expect more than one towel/person. NO, it's just the one towel for face, hands,body, pool...The rooms and bathrooms are run down, and the walls are so thin you hear everything going on next door ...The view is great but otherwise, STAY AWAY it's definetly not worth the money.

LighthouseView, Owner at Lighthouse View Oceanfront Lodging, responded to this review, July 16, 2010
Lighthouse View management had the pleasure of talking with the guests during their stay, and followed up with them after viewing their surprising comments. We learned that the guests, who were very friendly, owned five star resorts in Sweden and were surprised at the lack of service of both our resort and the Outer Banks area as a whole. At least one of the guests was here to kite board but to their disappointment the wind didn’t cooperate. The guests were delighted with the location and view even though they only rated us a three. We truly have one of the best locations on Hatteras Island and our rates are very fair. Most of our guests find this to be a great value at $200 per night during prime season. The guests stayed in one of our 800 square foot, weekly Villas, with a full kitchen. The unit overlooks the pool and the Atlantic Ocean, and is within a couple hundred feet of the beach. Our standard rooms have daily maid service, but this service is also available upon request for our Villas. We also supply additional linens upon request. We are a family owned and operated business that has been catering to guests for three generations. We will continue to do what we do best; provide affordable oceanfront accommodations for Outer Banks vacationers.

We stayed at a Villa at the Lighthouse view motel. The two story unit was older, with some signs of wear. However, it was very clean and a short walk to the beach. The location is great, near Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.

Spent a week at the Lighthouse. We had the top floor of a unit which had a fantastic view of the ocean. You couldn't ask for more when it came to that. It had a full kitchen which came in handy so you could make your own breakfast and not have to run out anywhere. Staff was very friendly. The only negative points would be that the walls are very thin and we could hear talking and walking below and on the sides of us. Also, I'm not overly weird about germs, etc. and I wouldn't say that I'm overly picky, but the room wasn't as clean as I would have liked it to be. I found a large comb on the floor in one of the closests (you couldn't miss it so they couldn't have been cleaning very well) and my daughter dropped a crayon on the sofa so we made the mistake of lifting the cushion and found an assortment of food, dirt, bandaids, etc. Also, when we first arrived there was a stain which looked like blood on the bathroom wall. On closer inspection it turned out to be (maybe) makeup. Again, these are things that readily stood out and in my opinion should have been cleaned up. With that said, it was an enjoyable trip. We weren't in the room that much since the weather was beautiful. Just for reference, the hotel is at Milemarker 61 on Highway 12. Our GPS couldn't get a fix on it.

Our first visit to the OuterBanks and we LOVED it! We go for the beach and peace and quiet not for the night life and entertainment. We found our place! We stayed in the Storm Cottage, nice and clean and a short walk to the beach. Our only complaint was the sleeper sofa was not comfortable for our teenage son. Otherwise it was wonderful, and we plan to go back.

This is a great location, with comfortable rooms and easy access to the beach. I expect to go back. Not plush, but great when your primary interest is the beach, not the room. Nice clean pool.
