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

Worst stay!

Posted 24-Oct-2016 on Hotels
As I said to hotel.com customer service No wifi no telephone no room info. The beds were old and very uncomfortable the bathroom had dirt on the floor even the toilet seat was all scared up I will not recommend this place to anyone We felt like we got such a good rate that they put us in one of their worst rooms! Never stay there again Never!!! Janet

The room was spacious and clean. Spread beds were clean but they had a funny smell.

the Owens has been in nags Head since 1947 need maybe a little updating but for the price and just a place to sleep it was great. our room had a little musty odor and the carpet could use a good cleaning, but we visited right after fall started and their busy season just finished up. I would recommend for anyone on a budget

Good old quaint family run beach motel.

Posted 27-Sep-2016
Pros: Locally owned and operated, very friendly staff, a short walk to the beach,one of the best restaurants on the beach.
Cons: Tv's are old crt sets and need to be upgraded to HD, wi-fi would be nice for those who need it. Fridge had no shelves.
Location: Convenient location near Whalebone junction, Jeanette's pier,A short drive to historic Manteo and to Oregon inlet.
Been going to the OBX for almost 50 years, way before the big name concrete and glass high rise hotels and motels and still prefer staying in an old school "homey" motel.

Very, very strange place.

Posted 27-Sep-2016
Pros: The house keepers were really good.
Cons: Put a phone in the rooms and provide wifi since you advertise as having it.
Location: The location was fine, but then again so is every other hotel nearby.
We check in and go to the room and it is clean but very strange. Right away I notice that a lamp and alarm clock on the night stand are not working. This is because there is no outlet to plug either one into on that wall. Also the bathroom's outlet was covered up by the mirror. I try to connect to the wifi that the hotel claims to have in its advertisements but cannot find a hotspot. I was going to use the phone in the room to call the front desk but there was also no phone in the room. When I called the front desk from my cell phone, the desk clerk told me that they do not have wifi and that it is a mistake in all their advertisements. I ask about the lack of a phone and she said they had to remove the phones from the rooms a long time ago. I was relieved to find out that the pool wasn't a false advertisement, however it is located directly adjacent to the dumpsters for the hotel's restaurant.
