Rustic hotel - near beach, shopping & restaurants

Posted 05-Aug-2017
Pros: Location was near the beach, restaurants, shopping, and Kitty Hawk/ Wright Bros park. Kids enjoyed the pool.
Cons: Rooms need to be updated and cleaned thoroughly. Need new mattresses, bedding and curtains. Offer wifi for guests - we needed to answer work emails.
Location: Close to Jennette's Pier, beach, Kitty Hawk, shopping, grocery stores, Duck Donuts, seafood restaurants, Wright Bros Memorial Park, Jockey's Ridge
Rustic hotel near the beach. Very old and in need of updating. Curtains had holes in them, carpet very worn, everything old and tired. Seemed clean at first glance, but upon closer inspection, hair left in sink and shower from previous guests, I had to clean the fridge and microwave before we could use them. The beds were extremely creaky - any time anyone in the room turned over during the night, I would wake up. On the morning we left, we saw a cockroach running up the wall. The rooms are across the street from the beach with no view at all, which is not really clear when you book. We booked this because we needed a lower priced hotel and still wanted something clean and safe. Location was the only plus here - close to the beach and to shopping and dining.

Very dated

Posted 30-Jul-2017
Hotel has a good location, 1 building faces beach the other is across the road, room dated to 60's no plug-in in the bathroom or by the mirror to dry your hair or shave. TV on a low shelf couldn't see from bed had to but it on a cooler to watch. Parking is first come if you go out to dinner you might have to park across the road from your room.

Yes we do have an old property...we've been here since the 1950's with the founding family offering clean comfortable rooms and southern hospitality. We are planning some upgrades for the next few years. Thank you very much for your review and for staying with us. Jim

Perfect get away to recharge!

Quiet mom/pop style motel, perfect for unplugging from regular days back home. Walk to the beach from your room, quiet beach, just down from Jannette's pier, walk to restaurants. Perfect baby moon for us ❤️

Beach Weekend

Posted 29-Jun-2017
Location: Sam and Omie's for breakfast!!
First time staying at this motel. It was a great location as we could walk to breakfast at Sam and Omie's. The only complaint was that the refrigerator in the room had a very strong fish odor. I reported it at the front desk upon check out. Seems they were aware because fishermen had stayed there previously. Obviously, the baking soda was not going to fix the problem. They should really replace the old fridge. Other than that, the room was clean and comfortable.

Decent motel, real close to beach access and pier. Very friendly staff. Room was a little musty but overall clean. Would stay again.

I was the last day of a 15,000 mile 3 month journey. Great place to spend it. The guy at the desk was great!

We enjoy staying at Owens Motel. This is our second year there! We enjoy the location that is so convenient to stores, restaurants and Jeanette's Pier.
