I got a great Groupon deal and had never been to the Outer Banks so I took advantage.

Don't be misled. Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is not in Hatteras. It is in Buxton, NC..not too far away though. On our drive to the hotel, the only road into Hatteras was closed for 3 hours due to sand and water overspray. Very scary driving through this at night (during the day too so be extra careful!) There is no barrier between the road and the water except for large mounds of sand. On the way back we had to drive through water and sand as well. If you visit anytime beside summer beware there is NOTHING to do. We visited in March. When the road was shutdown and we turned around to find something to fill our time until it re-opened, we headed down to the outlet mall in Nags Head. On a Friday night it was closed at 7 pm. All the restaurants closed by 9pm. So if you are visiting in the off-season stock your room with food. Even the hotel front desk closes at 8 pm.

As far as the hotel, the satff was very nice. The room was very basic. It did have a small kitchenette with refrigerator and microwave. Bathroom mirror needs replacing. Overall pretty clean. People upstairs were very noisy and we could hear everything. These rooms have exterior facing doors, motel-style. The lock was very hard to manage opening and closing. They even have signs posted on the walls outside the door telling you how to unlock and lock them. They did provide bagels and fruit, coffee, etc for breakfast in the hotel lobby. They do have a restaurant on-site, though we did not visit.

We used a Groupon for our stay... what a great deal, it was off season but very nice. We had a kitchen, which we used because there were not that many restaurants open, Jacuzzi tub, nice comfortable bed, nice patio deck with a view of the marina, really nice people that worked there!! I would certainly go back!!

We got a groupon to try this out in the off season. Nice rooms on the water with beautiful views and solitude. Unfortunately the heating system? was very noisy so we didnt sleep well but the beds are nice and the room was clean. So much is closed until mid March including the Breakwater restaurant and the lighthouse in Buxton. We did see gorgeous sunsets and sunrises, dolphins, deer and pelicans everywhere. The front desk let us know what was open for meals and was very helpful. Its easy to walk around the docks and enjoy the outdoors.

Due to Hurricane Sandy, my husband and I had to put off our trip to Hatteras for 3 months - it was worth the wait.

The Breakwater Inn is a great little hotel. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back soon. The staff is so nice and accommodating, location is great, right on the sound. The view from our room was great!!

I highly recommend The Breakwater Inn!

Room Tip: All room face the sound.

Very nice getaway on the harbor of the sound side. Rooms are clean and spacious and each room has a beautiful view of the water. Comes with a free continental breakfast. Front desk is extremely friendly and helpful. Only few blocks to Atlantic side and beach.

Room Tip: Higher floor has a nicer view of sound
