“Cute Little Beach Bungalow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2010

We arrived in Buxton with no lodging reservations on a Friday afternoon. Most establishments had their no vacancy signs lit so both of us thought we'd end up driving back to the mainland sooner than we wanted to, then we saw this place so we gave it a try. We were greeted by a sweet older lady, she had a 1 bungalow for 2 available for the weekend. It was an adorable, clean, newly renovated little place. Decor was bright and airy all done in white and pastel sea blue. Perfect for what we wanted and priced extremely resonable (never expected to pay such a low price in peak season). The light house was around the corner and we found our own private beach where just us 2 basked in the sun the whole weekend!! When in Hatteras you must take in a sunset over the sound, absolutely breath taking!! We found our little nook at the beach now I can't wait till we return!!!!!!

My wife and I, along with 2 friends made reservations 3 months in advance for 2 rooms (1a and 2a) at the outer banks motel in Buxton. We called a day before to confirm our reservations before traveling from central Pennsylvania to buxton NC. When we arrived at the outer banks motel to check in, the owner told us they had no records of us making reservations for 2 rooms and had nothing to offer us... She blamed it on a new employee and said he makes mistakes....... We told her we just traveled 8 hours from Pennsylvania, and called to confirm before we left. Still she was rude, did not help us and acted if it was our fault.
This was the most unorganized motel i have ever TRIED to stay at. Their front office was a mess, and it was clear why something as simple as documenting reservations for customers was a hard task for employees there.
We ended up finding a motel later in the day called the Avon motel which was a relief in our situation. Nothing is more aggravating than worrying about a place to stay on vacation.

Grumpy Ms Gray finally gave in and allowed us to move to another room only after I had explained that it was impossible to stay one more second in Cottage G (part of Carolyn’s Cottages). I guess the people before us didn’t complain so it couldn’t be true. I have patronized this property for years, almost 10, and have stayed in almost every cottage they have, I don’t expect much as they are an older and outdated. But I love the location and that I can bring my dog. So just be careful and don’t rent Cottage G or any of the other ones that are on a cement slab foundations.

The location is fantastic. No matter which unit you stay in, the beach is right there and you are close to great restaurants and the sites. But the rooms leave a lot to be desired. The beds were Motel 6 quality. The room smells of just enough water damage that you can be certain that your allergies will start right up. We had a view of the water but the chairs on the balcony were so uncomfortable that you wouldn't want to sit long. The hotel doesn't offer any seating out at the beach and there are no beach chair/umbrella guys even trying to rent you one, so come prepared with all your own beach gear. But if you want location to both the ocean and the kiteboarding side of the island, this is a great spot.

We stayed here during a sightseeing trip up the East Coast. This is a wonderful motel - clean, nice room, friendly, and everything you could want - right on the beach, nice pool, hot tub. For the price, this motel is a great value. The restaurant across the street serves a great breakfast.
