The room was small and smelled like old lotion, there was no internet or phone, the air conditioner was so loud we could barely have a conversation, the shower was a single stall with nowhere to put toiletries, the only ice available was dirty and kept in a cooler across the street, and the door key kept getting stuck in...

We've been going to the Outer Banks area for over 16 yrs..have stayed in different hotels and house rentals. Needed a one night stay for business reasons so picked Owens. Poor choice! Next to the bed were several dead bugs in a layer of dust..taking up much needed space in a very small room. A picture on the wall near... More

Cheap quality motel! Uncomfortable beds, tiny bathroom with stall shower, noisy AC. Not even a phone in the room to contact the office which was across the street. Yes, you can walk to the beach across the street but that is it.

Great location and reasonable price. Needs a bit of work, especially in the bathroom. When the tub is completely rusted through, it is time to spring for some repairs. Parking was a bit of a problem, but that was not management's fault. We should have had a spot in front of our room, but someone was always there.

We stayed here for one night when we arrived in OBX the day before our beach house rental. The rooms are a little dated but are very clean. Our room seemed to have a few updates since our last stay (new carpet, etc). If you are looking for a chain motel with wifi and bagels in the morning, this is... More

It was inexpensive compared to others and the staff were very nice. But the outside was run down, the room was a bit shabby, the mattress pad thin and kept slipping off during the night, no place to put toiletries. There was a small fridge, microwave on top and coffee pot on top of that. Only two plugs though so... More

If youre looking for fancy schmancy nancy,find a chain hotel and pay double. This place is an inexpensive motel that you sleep in because you're there for the BEACH! We enjoyed a really nice beachfront room that has been updated. It wasnt spotless ,and who cares?! Bathroom was updated recently and looked nice. Balcony was the best for my family... More

I will qualify this review by saying we have never stayed in a motel before on the Outer Banks, we have always rented a condo, but the condo was sold and not being rented. The postives...I got a great deal on this hotel. We also stayed oceanside and getting to the beach was simple. The staff are all great, very... More
