Positive Reviews

Prime location in Nags Head

With a position that is not just close to the beach but also surrounded by various attractions, it should come as no surprise that the location is seen as the Owens' Motel's best feature - according to the collective sentiment of previous guests. The beach, Jennette's Pier and Tanger Outlets Nags Head are all within five minutes from the motel on foot.

Hospitable and friendly staff

When it came to interacting with the staff at the motel, most past visitors had an encouraging experience. The customer service provided is said to be warm and hospitable for the most part.

Rooms with a view

Although the accommodations at the Owens' Motel were widely criticized by former guests, there was at least one positive aspect about the rooms that was well received: the views on offer. Whilst it is only select rooms that have this feature, those that do apparently provide wonderful ocean views.

Negative Reviews

Outdated and distressed

Many past visitors derided the condition of the Owens' Motel. Dated amenities, distressed furnishings, stained carpets, underperforming air conditioning units and general maintenance issues were just some of the problems mentioned with regards to the overall poor standards of the rooms.

No Wi-Fi

Although it is a simple and stripped back accommodation choice, various previous guests were still puzzled by the fact that the motel does not supply Wi-Fi. In fact, there is supposedly no form of Internet connection available for those staying at the accommodation.

Rooms missing amenities

In keeping with the Owens' Motel's no-thrills approach, the rooms were reportedly lacking in supplying even basic room amenities. Former visitors have stated that the rooms were missing standard comforts such as toiletries and a telephone.
