Nice place! Right on the ocean! Friendly staff! We stayed in a suite so we had to go to the office to get our own towels replenished! No maid service! Not a huge deal just different 😊 we plan to visit again

We're glad you enjoyed your stay and especially glad you will be back. We have found over many years that our suite guests (those in rooms with kitchens) prefer not to have the housekeepers in their rooms on a daily basis so that is our procedure. But you can always ask us at the office for services at any time....

We have stayed at Lighthouse Motel and Outer Banks Motel and thought we would give Cape Hatteras Motel a try. The host were friendly and helpful. The room had a great view. Room 312 needs to be rehab'd. The fridge had no door on the little freezer so the freezer was useless. The fridge and microwave were rusted. The lamps...

We stayed for 2 nights. It was good for the price. The ocean is about as close as you can get. There seemed to be a lot of families there. If you walk down the beach a 1/8 mile there is not many people and it is very relaxing. This place is close to a lot of restaurants. Inside was...

We stayed in the efficiency/2 bedroom rooms across the street. Not a bad walk to the beach at all. Still very convenient. These rooms are dated but are definitely worth the price. Full kitchen and plenty of space to cook and prepare full meals. Living room big enough for 6 people to sit comfortably. 20 yard walk to the pool...

We spent three nights here this week and really enjoyed it. The room was clean and cozy. My daughters really enjoyed playing in the pool. The sound of the waves were so loud at night that you think it's rating so we all slept so good. We will see you guys next year.

The ocean view is wonderful if you are in the ocean-side rooms. It is within 40' of the room. We stayed in a townhome (#404)which has balconies on the second and third floor. We watched lightning afar off the coast during a night storm and saw the sun rise in the morning. It was relaxing to watch and hear the...

My husband and I like staying here because of the proximity to the beach and the ocean. Nothing fancy but clean and everything works...WiFi, flat screen TV with remote, little frig, microwave, good water pressure...all our must haves and only steps to the beach!

You are definitely paying for the view. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean but certainly expensive for the room you get. We got a oceanfront room and it was a gorgeous view - right on the beach. Step off the deck and you are there. We only wanted to stay one night so many places beachfront were...

Right on the beach! Loved our shared porch with rocking chairs, it was so quaint. The rooms are very clean and have been recently remodeled. This is not a fancy place but the location is perfect. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

You can't get closer to the ocean than this hotel. Great porch to sit and enjoy the beach, and it looks like a great beach to swim at too (but I didn't). The room is large, the newly refurbished bathroom was huge as well. My only complaint was the musty, moldy smell of the room with an attempt to cover...

The motel is bordered by the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and the Atlantic Ocean. The motel has a fresh water pool with a hot tub.

Boats out of Hatteras have the shortest run to the gulf stream north of Florida. There is also a fishing pier five miles north of Cape Hatteras Motel. We offer oceanfront rooms with either one king or two queen beds. We also offer two bedroom suites, complete with full kitchens.These units are complete with linens and dishes. All units have access to free Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs and air conditioning.
