Fodor's Expert Review Cape Pines Motel

47497 NC 12, Buxton, North Carolina, 27920, USA

Though most visitors to Hatteras Island stay in a vacation rental house, this small, 1950s-era motel fits the bill for a night or two. Cape Pines accepts and even welcomes pets (in designated rooms) with a fenced pet area in the back, plus there's a nice swimming pool, and the rooms are well maintained and spacious. Another bonus is the close proximity to the local grocery and Buxton Village Books, a classic independent bookstore.
