Decent hotel, fantastic location, but the staff???

Posted 29-Jun-2015
Pros: Location was nice. Pool was clean.
Cons: It would be nice if the Wifi would stay online, staff would be more cooperative and realize the importance of their collective jobs.
Location: Ferry to Ocracoke, surf fish, pier fish, or charter a trip, take the Jeep to the beach, loads of good restaurants & shops to enjoy while you are here!
Stayed Thursday 6/25-Sunday 6/28. Housekeeping came in while we were out enjoying the day on the 26th, all they did was hang two new towels and two new wash cloths in the bathroom. They did not vacuum, did not straighten bed or replace sheets. Worst of all, they did not pickup the used towels or washcloths!!! On the 27th, after a day enjoying ourselves, we came back at around 3:30 to find housekeeping still had not been to our room, and the TV had no service. When I finally found someone in housekeeping, they said they did not realize they had missed our room. They came within an hour and a half, but again never vacuumed, though they did at least pick up the dirties this time around. Front Desk had no interest in fixing our television problems and I eventually moved the bureau and tightened the fittings on the back of the TV and on the wall. An unimpressive visit, but thank goodness the weather provided us with a good reason not to be in the room for long.

Lots of driving on the Outer Banks.

Pros: The Shower was excellent.
Cons: Everything but the shower.
Location: No problems with the location. No sign in front!!!!
The Hotel front sign is missing causing me a huge headache. The room was OK. The shower was excellent! The exterior was NASTY looking!!!! Overall wouldn't go back. Staff was OK.

Webpage photos are as good as it gets.

Pros: Location.
The exterior of the building needs alot of maintenance. The carpeting in the room felt damp. I would have expected a much nicer facility for what we paid per night.

it worked for the night.

Posted 17-Jun-2015
Pros: the pillows.
Cons: put in comfortable beds, change out the carpet and that would be a good start.
Location: very close to the lighthouse and attractions.
The staff was nice and helpful in directing us where we needed to go. Bed was not very comfy tho. I expected more for the price I paid for the room. Breakfast was not included but the pillows were nice and the air was on before we went in the room so that was a plus. Came equipped with a mini fridge and microwave. It worked for the night.

Affordable Comfort Close to the Beach!

Posted 16-Jun-2015
Pros: Clean, close to the beach and friendly.
Location: 100 yards to the beach. Three minute drive to the Hatteras Lighthouse. Close to several nice restaurants.
We booked at this hotel because it was the only affordable hotel that had openings on the island. I expected to have to put up with "cheap motel" conditions but was pleasantly surprised to find the hotel was well maintained, clean and very comfortable. The room was big enough to spread out. The paint was fresh and clean. The bathroom fixtures looked new. The staff were friendly and responsive. We asked for a late checkout and were accommodated. The lobby had complementary coffee and room to relax while the rest of my family was still sleeping. While this is clearly not a five star hotel it earned a 5 rating from me.

Great place for a weekend get away by the beach!

Posted 16-Jun-2015
We had an issue with the tub not draining and I told housekeeping about it and within minutes, maintenance was there to take care of it. The room was clean and comfortable. The foldout couch could use a new mattress. Overall, everything was perfect for what we needed and the price was very reasonable.

Good, inexpensive hotel

Posted 15-Jun-2015
Convenient to everything in Buxton. Less than 5 minutes from Hatteras Lighthouse. This is an older property, clean and comfortable. Biggest complaint is WiFi wireless only available in the lobby.

Good location, close to park

Posted 09-Jun-2015
Pros: The location
Cons: Add outlets in the room- make the parking lot easier to get in and out of. Upgrade the fridge and ac unit
Location: Close to the lighthouse park
Definitely could use some spiffing up- but overall, okay
