My husband and I stayed at the "old" Lighthouse View back in 1988 for our honeymoon. Sadly I lost him last year so I returned on his birthday this year to set him free in the ocean at Hatteras - his favorite beach. Inez and staff could not have been nicer nor more accommodating. It was a wonderful way to...

We had the comfortable 2 bedroom with full kitchen. We were on the top floor. It was so wonderful to wake up with the sounds of the ocean and the view on the porch of the beach. It was so relaxing. Surfing is great there and so easy to walk out and jump right in. Walking distance to places to...

We just love it here...it's the place if you want peace and quiet, enjoy being amazed by the constant changing of the weather with an oft-time pounding ocean, like it laid back with really nice people. I also enjoyed the services at Our Lady of the Sea Church. All in all, an unassuming special place with good people and as...

This is a great location for a laid back vacation. The rooms are clean and comfortable with phenomenal views, definitely worth extra money for oceanfront. The covered porches are spacious and nice place to eat and take in the view. Lots of people fishing from shore with success. It was very rough while I was there with a few surfers....

Beautiful place. Right on the beach. A little bit older but clean and accommodating. If you like being right on the beach this is the place to be.Had an ocean view room. Had a nice outdoor deck with chairs.

Arrived to find our tub looking streaky yellow with hair in the drain. They sent housekeeping to address it while we were out but nothing was done about yellow streaks on walls. Bleach would be suggested on occasion. I asked if rooms get cleaned daily and was initially told yes, but later they clarified that it didn't include cleaning the...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed everything about our stay at this motel. The hotel staff were both friendly and efficient, and they work hard to make sure that guests have everything they need. Our suite seemed more like a small apartment. There was a "master" bedroom with a king-sized bed, an alcove with 2 bunk beds, a small bathroom,...

The Lighthouse View is a collection of wooden-stilted structures located right on the beach at Buxton. Rooms themselves are a little dated, although everything was clean and my top-floor room had a pleasant outside seating area with terrific ocean views. Had intended to stay for 3 nights, but Hurricane Matthew was approaching, so bailed out back north after 2. Staff...

After being displaced from Ocracoke by Hurricane Matthew, we moved back up the coast for the first displaced night and decided to take a night in Buxton at the Lighthouse View. We had stayed next door at the Cape Hatteras Motel a few years ago and enjoyed it, but that property is pretty much in the middle of the ocean...
