Owens' Motel is an affordable, budget hotel in the heart of Nags Head, NC. If you are looking for a short visit to the outer banks and aren't planning to rent an entire vacation house for a week, this hotel provides a reasonable alternative. Mind you, there's nothing fancy here--but the convenience is fabulous. We reserved an oceanfront efficiency room... More

One word to describe: DUMP It may have a good location to the beach but that's it. Horrible torn and saggy mattresses and box springs, chipped and cracked toilet seat, leaky bathroom sink, no internet, worn and smelly carpeting, disgusting smell of mold and milde from air conditioning, ice not from machine but in a cooler sitting in the floor...

The room was small, the AC was a little noisy, the vending machine did not work. The bathroom is tiny with a stand up shower only and its a very tight space. However, we liked it. And the reason is because all we wanted was an affordable place to stay that was clean and close to the beach. And that... More

We attended a wedding in June in Nags Head and did not want to pay the overly priced rates of most hotels in Nags Head, we found The Owens at The Nags (I have embelished the name to make it sound more resort like :) ) for around $100.00 per night and decided to roll the dice on this place....

We stayed in an oceanfront efficiency room in May 2015 for the weekend. Everything seemed to be pretty clean. It was just me and my husband so we had plenty of room. The bathroom shower was surprisingly large as well. We had a king size bed and it seemed to sleep rather well. I loved just opening the back door... More

The room was musty smelling. Turning on the a/c did not help. The smell was overwhelming when you entered the room. At $69, it had direct access to the beach across the street, BUT many guests partied in area directly in front of the rooms during the day and night. I had never seen such a sight. In the morning,...

This is an older hotel with a number of options and prices for its various rooms. We opted for the beach view housekeeping room. The view is what you pay for, because the whole complex has seen better days. Our room had no dishcloths, no shampoo, no basic condiments like salt and pepper... things that you would expect in a...

I booked a room through Trip Advisor as I have many many times before without a problem. I received a confirmation email and a few days later another email saying that there was another room available at a cheaper rate so we took advantage of the savings. We received an email confirming this with a new confirmation#. Imagine our surprise... More

My girls and I stayed one night here, great service, clean rooms and close to everything. They many rooms in different locations in Nags Head. Some right on the beach, our room was across the road from the beach, just a little walk away. We enjoyed our stay.

We had a small room in the old section, just steps from Owens Restaurant. Liked the wood paneling and the white wicker furniture. Bathroom was fine; plenty of hot water. Clean. As in nearly all hotels/motels, there were not enough towel racks and hooks. The worst thing was the air-conditioner; it was VERY noisy.
