This hotel was the most affordable we could find in OBX. The room was fairly clean but was very dated. The door was so flimsy and you could see light streaming in. The hotel was run down and the window unit was extremely loud. Luckily we only had to stay one night.

Price does not reflect condition

Posted 25-Jun-2015
Pros: location
Cons: room structure, ceiling falling down
No WIFI !!! unbelievable, this motel is well located but in horrible condition, paying almost 200 dollar per night with no wifi is not fair.

Air Conditioner was so loud and clanky that it had to be turned off making the room very uncomfortable.

Right on the beach!

Posted 15-Jun-2015
Oceanfront rooms are right on the beach. Clean and convenient access to the beach and other restaurants etc surrounding. Short walk to the pier. Not a fancy place, but it is a beach motel. Looks really run down from the outside,but room was surprisingly updated and roomy. Bathroom was all tile and very nice.

Don't stay there

Posted 13-Jun-2015
Pros: The bed is good in addition to the staff.
Cons: This is a stupid question. If you don't know what should be done why you should be in the business.
Location: The wright brother memorial I strongly recommend.
The carpet looked not just dirty also wet. No WIFi!! Can you believe that? Anyway the staff was good. But what else they could offer? I don't recommend it to anyone.

Pros: Price and cleanliness
Location: We like that the piers are close by for fishing.
We were able to check in early which was very nice. The room was nothing fancy but was cozy, clean and the price was great. The shower was a bit small. Had microwave, small refrigerator and coffee maker.

Great staff, good for the price

Posted 26-May-2015
Pros: price, staff, beach access
Cons: dated rooms, parking
Pros: The staff was friendly. We forgot to bring a beer bottle opener and asked the staff if he had one. He walked across the street to their restaurant and brought it to our room. Nearby beach access, at least from the part of the motel we stayed. Clean facilities. Inexpensive compared to other hotels/motels in the area. Cons: Very dated. The wood paneling on the walls reminded me of my grandparents' house. Even though everything is old, though, the room seemed very clean. We did see two roaches the first night, but nothing after that. Parking on our side of the hotel was very tight at times. I recommend this motel because of the price and cooperative staff. If you just need a place to sleep and can get past the dated feel, you'll probably be pleased with Owens' Motel.

OK place to stay

Posted 18-May-2015
Pros: Close to beach.
Cons: Floors need to be cleaned.
Location: Close to beach. Swim. Fishing near Jennette's Pier. Close to breakfast. Enjoyed Wright Bro. museum. Trip to Ocracoke.
The room was ok. Carpet & bathroom floor were sticky. Carpet seemed very dirty. Old motel. No ice machine. Ice was in an ice chest. Toward evening it was empty. There were ants in the bathroom. The motel had everything - coffee pot in room, microwave, fridge, iron, hair dryer. No plug-in in the bathroom.
