I can't rave enough about this place! I have to travel with my little 6 lb Yorkie and I love the retro ambience of this motel. The staff is so welcoming and accommodating. And believe me it is clean, clean, clean! There is a nice pool and dog park located in the back where you can potty and walk your dog which was also very clean, safe and convenient. It's located across the street from a really nice grocery store (Conners) and to all things to see, eat, shop and do. The Hatteras Lighthouse is right down the street. This is my 3rd time staying here (once during COVID,) and I just feel so relaxed and happy when I stay here. We stayed in Room 1 on the first level and we had a cute room with kitchenette with all appliances you need to feel like home, a king size bed, and little living room area and a very nice and clean bathroom. You can tell the owners go the extra mile to make your stay a great one. If you love all things retro and want to experience the old time flavor and added hospitality of Hatteras Island then this is the place for you.

This is a 1960's type motel - park in front of your room. Buxton is limited on lodging options but several excellent restaurants nearby. Owner on site, check in easy. We had a non-pet room with King bed and a full bed. Very spacious. Our room was around the side where they have 5 rooms on main floor and 5 upstairs. Parking is off side street but they don't have 10 spots. No breakfast here - you'll have to go out for breakfast. A good place for an overnight coming from Morehead City across two ferries to get to Hatteras.

We were last minute for reservations as we had a family member pass however the staff/owners here were amazing! Our rooms were clean. The hospitality superb. The owners son helped us out with a lost dog as we were afraid “spike” may get hit in the road. Very family oriented motel! Clean pool. Great ice. Convenient to grocery stores and other shopping desires/needs. After coming to the outer banks for 50 plus years, I’ve lost that quaint feeling for a while until this trip! Thank you cape pines!

Decent location, close to market and national park. Pool adequate but closes at 9pm. Rooms are spartan and beds need upgrade for price of rooms. Minimal services available, did not get room serviced in two days. Bathrooms are tight with shower curtain on you when showering. Staff very nice. Rooms are loud if on lower floor.

My husband and I stayed in the King Deluxe room for five nights. We were very pleased with the room; everything was spotless. The bed and bedding were very nice; in fact, I asked where they purchased the blanket because I would like to have one for my own bed. The Manager, Dipta, her son Viraj, and Carol, the desk clerk were all very friendly and helpful with anything that we inquired about. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Very accommodating & considerate place to be with cottage-style feel & good vibes to enhance your stay on OBX . Amenities available for your fur babies. Clean & comfy. Great location within walking distance of great shoppes & stores. Do consider closing bathroom door upon showering as fire alarm works very well!!

Super clean and quaint motor lodge with great location. We got an efficiency with a king bed which was comfy. We brought our little puppy with us and everything was super nice and cozy. Staff is very pleasant to communicate with. Nice clean pool with a little gas BBQ grill to use if you need it. Great grocery store across the street (Conner's) with excellent selection of whatever you may need.

It was hard to find a reasonably priced motel on the Outer Banks but Cape Pines has a decent price. Our room was very clean and spacious and the beds were comfortable. The man at the front desk was helpful and friendly.

Always a great stay at the Cape Pines! It’s not fancy but it’s clean, has cold A/C, comfy beds, and the rooms are spacious. The staff are always ready to meet any needs or requests you have. Perfect location! Walk across the street to Conners for any grocery needs and lots of great restaurants just down the street!
