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...

We had been in Kill Devil Hills for four nights & had a great time however it was quite a change in the entire feeling of our trip once we arrived @ LIGHTHOUSE VIEW. The cottage surpassed our expectations & we both agreed an annual trip would now be fit into our schedule but cannot wait and are returning in...

Directly on the beach with some rooms having great views of the ocean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were cleaned and well maintained but in need of updating. The AC system is quite noisy cycling off and on and blowing hard enough to chill you when on. The small room refrigerators are also quite noisy. At...

Basic simple very clean room: top floor: chairs on outside deck. This is a hotel that says "you can relax now you are at the beach". Quiet. Room was very comfortable, clean and affordable. Directly ocean front with sound of surf throughout your room. There isn't an elevator so you have to climb those stairs: but it is well worth...

This place is awesome!!! We have stayed here twice now because they accommodate dogs. I have a Shih-tzu named Chloe and she loves it. Every time we have stayed, we were placed in a quaint cottage with an ocean view. It is always very clean, well kept and cutely decorated. There are no indications that animals, regardless of size, have...

I went down to take pictures of the lighthouse this past weekend and I was pleasantly surprised. The lighthouse view was clean and the location was perfect, within walking distance of shops and restaurants as well as being located right on the beach. I really enjoyed the patio that overlooked the ocean, they were not separate, so you got to...
