We went down to OBX for a quick weekend from DC. We wanted a reasonably priced clean quiet place on the beach, with very close proximity to all attractions, where we could rest our heads after a long day. Owen's Motel is just that. It's very friendly and quiet, and located in the middle of everything. We stayed in the courtyard, which was great because we could park in from of our door. Across from the courtyard is an empty lot, so you face the sand dunes.
It has that 1960's local feel - the feeling that you're dealing with a person, not a giant chain. The guy who runs the place is a really nice middle-aged surfer. The office opens at 9am because he clearly spent the morning surfing. There were no problems, everything was clean - with plenty of towels. The rooms are big, no problem with parking.
And, the restaurant attached to the hotel has fantastic food. It's a bit pricey (and I'm a bit cheap), but it was worth the money. (~$30/entree)
