Reviewed 27 November 2011

We were looking for an affordable and decent place to stay for a weekend fishing trip and we found it here. We liked this place very much. Excellent location and the rooms were very clean. The staff were very nice and you couldn't beat the price.

We opted for a room without a view (over looks the parking lot) however we could still see the sound from our second floor deck and if we peeked around the corner of the building we could see the ocean.

In the room we had a king size bed which was very comfortable, a coffee maker, mini fridge and a microwave. All clean and in working order.

It was too cold to swim but they had a very nice pool and hot tub. Also, there is a nice fish cleaning station with running water and light. Unfortunately we didn't get to use it.

This hotel sits right on the beach but after the recent storms, the beach has taken quite a beaten and most it has been washed away. However, a little further down the beach seems to still be usable.

The internet was a bit spotty but I was there to fish the surf not the internet so it didn't bother me too much.

All in all we found this hotel to be a great place to stay and we will definitely stay here again.

The Lighthouse View was a decent, clean hotel room for our 2 night stay. Nothing spectacular or flashy. Friendly woman behind the counter. Room had a fridge, microwave, TV, wireless internet. Only negative things I can say was that the water pressure in the shower was very poor, the internet was spotty at times and my bed was a little uncomfortable. The pool and hot tub was nice. All and all, not bad for $69 a night. October 18-20, 2011.

We stayed here for the weekend and it was great. Beautiful views of the ocean, nice pool and hot tub. Our room was on the third floor and had a nice deck with chairs and a table outside. Room was kept clean and everything was in good condition, including a microwave and mini-fridge.

We visited Lighthouse view in August, 2011. We stayed in the one bedroom suite with loft. It was a great set up for a family with teens- the loft is accessible by ladder only and has 2 twin beds and a half bath. We had a King bedroom to ourselves. There was a small kitchen and a living room. By far the best feature of the unit was the third floor balcony with 5 chairs overlooking the ocean. We spent a lot of time relaxing out there. The beach is a really short walk over the dunes (maybe 75 yards).

We try to stay at 3 star motels: this would not qualify. The furnishings were completely fine, and the bed was comfortable, even with my bad back, but it was not plush and the furnishings were fairly basic. Plenty of seating and perfectly comfortable, but not luxurious. On the other hand, the location is amazing, and it was a great value.

One word of warning is that they treat this unit like a cottage, so there was no maid service while we stayed in the unit. Bring a bar of soap for check in, but they supply all the linens and dishes. My only other complaint is that Hurricane Irene cut our visit short - (consider trip insurance, NC hotels don't refund for storms) I hope to return next year.

Room Tip: spend some timeon the website looking at the property map.

If you are looking for a luxury resort, this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking for a family-friendly, oceanfront condo with a pool and WiFi at an affordable rate on Hatteras Island.. this is the best place you will find!! We stayed in a suite with a king bed and a small, doorless room with bunkbeds. It had a full kitchen and roomy family area. We do not like the area restaurants so we cooked all our meals. We are beach people so we spent most of our time there. My kids had a great time in the waves and looking for sand crabs at night. The early morning walks on the beach were spectacular. Hotel management was always very friendly and eager to please.

Here are some things to keep in mind: Bring your own beach towels. Bring or buy dishwasher soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, etc. You do your own cleaning during your stay but at this price it does not seem so bad. You can exchange the provided bath towels every day if you wish. The walls are a little thin so you do hear people above and/or below (not voices as much as footsteps and chairs scraping on floors). The kitchen is a little sparce on pots and pans but you can make it work. The internet is sometimes slow and can go "offline". We called the front desk and they fixed the problem right away. Coin laundry is available from 3-9pm every day except Saturday unless you are staying in a cottage that has its own washer/dryer. Rooms are accessible by stairs - we liked the workout.

We will defeinitely be back. It is tremendous value and a beautiful beach!
