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.

The room felt damp, but that is to be expected since it's near the beach. We stayed at the courtyard building across the street from the older part of the motel, which is right on the beach. The beds were hard and our room had no smoke alarm. We also found a water bottle under the bed from the previous... More

Our room smelt bad, we turned off the A/C since it was full of mold and made the room smell even worse. The floors were bouncing due to the rottened wood structure. Even if they tried to hide with paint the problems, these are dangerous for your health. The lady at the front desk restricted the ice, since it was... More

I love this place. It is quirky, quaint, quiet and quality. We have been staying here going on 6 years. We were concerned they would be closed because of hurricane Arther but when we called the night before the front desk reasurred us they were open and ready for our reservation. When we did arrive they allowed us to check... More

We decided to make our trip to OBX a day early. We wanted to beat the 4th of July rush. The lady at the front desk was great. We told her that my sister had two broken feet and she respected our request for a first floor room and a handicap space. I would love to say the same for... More

We stay in the Owens's hotel for 3 nights, nice and polite service. We stay in the courtyard session, it is not water front but it is across from the Owens hotel portion that it is water front (so it is really close/walking 3 minutes to ocean). Also the hotel is close to the Jannette's Pier (about 6 minutes walk)... More

Owens Motel is nothing fancy but it's clean and convenient to the beach, Jeanette's Pier, Fat Boyz ice cream and burgers, and Cahoon's Market. All within a 2 block distance. This special place is truly "old school" Nags Head. We stayed in a west side/courtyard room that was a great value. It looked recently refurbished (in the last 2 years... More

Nothing fancy here. Just a motel, well at least where myself and my fishing buddies usually stay which is generally in the cheapest rooms they have. We are always happy with our accommodations though. Room is clean but not fancy. Like I said, perfect for fishing.

It gets the job done. Right across from the ocean, yummy expensive restaurant to eat at, walking distance of the pier & icecream parlor. Very friendly staff, room attendants were very sweet ladies & did anything I asked. They even took the time to place my children's baby doll nice & neat on their bed. Rooms are actually pretty dingy... More
