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

This was my first visit to Nags Heads, NC. We stayed in the Westside Courtyard of Owens Motel; I would have to say that I was displeased with my stay. The room had a faint smell of mildew as we entered the room. There were no toiletries available –hand soap, facial soap, shampoo/condition or hand location, nor facial tissue. The... More

I think the people writing bad reviews about this place are way to picky. Yeah the bathrooms are small and the picnic area is dated, so what, it's what you expect to pay for nothing more nothing less. I expect a clean room and a decent bed. That's what we got.

My husband and I booked a room for us for a Friday night while we waited for our house key the next day in July 2013. We have stayed at Owen's before so we knew the layout of the motel and what the rooms are like. We had two good friends with us this time who had never stayed there... More
