We arrived just a couple days after Hurricane Arthur and was so glad most of the Outer Banks was spared. As soon as we saw this charming little motel we knew we would love it! It is so quaint and charming and best of all it is very pet friendly. It is very clean and homey and very close to...

We stayed here just before Hurricane Arthur; we did leave a little early in case the storm cut off NC 12, since we had planned to be in Williamsburg to celebrate the 4th. We had a nice room, very comfortable and clean (yes, small bathroom as some others noted), and the family loved the pool - so warm and relaxing...

We arrived just two days before hurricane Arthur and decided to stay, since the locals were filling the rooms of this solid brick motel, known as the safest haven in Buxton in a storm. Now that the storm has passed, with no damage and no power or Internet interruptions,we are virtually the lone tourists in the town and on the...

We were here for a wedding and the location was perfect so based on the great reviews we picked it. The rooms were clean but the bathroom was so small it was difficult to sit on the toilet. The staff were very nice and attentive. The high lite was the pool, which was lovely and had comfy seating so we...

We appreciate guest comments and value timely comments and concerns. Our goal is to make you and your pets welcome, comfortable, and safe during your visit to the island.

We are avid fishermen and find Buxton to be central to all the great fishing locations on Hatteras Island. For the past 4 fishing trips to OBX, we have enjoyed staying at Cape Pines Motel which offers clean, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Relative to other accommodations in this small village, the motel is located in a quieter section and...

Over the last 10 or 12 years, we've stayed in Buxton at least once and often twice per year. We've tried 4 of the available 7 motels and rank the Cape Pines as the best.

If not for trip advisor, I would never have booked this motel. From the road, it looks very old and dumpy. However, we enjoyed the room. It was very spacious and spotless. I loved the quilts on the very comfortable beds instead of the cheap bedspreads most cheaper hotels use. The room was HUGE compared to most standard Double Queen...
