This was our second stay at Owen's Motel in Nags Head, North Carolina. We arrived around 3:00 on Friday, July 9th and were immediately given the key to our room. We stayed two nights, checking out on Sunday to move down the road to a resort in Kill Devil Hills. Most of the rooms have been updated and the one we had was very clean and nicely decorated in a beach theme. We had asked that our friends room be close to ours and they were right beside us, just like last year. Our daughters stayed in what the motel called an oceanfront room, across the road from us down from the main office, which actually faced a driveway, and it was not as updated as ours was. Our rooms were back across from the pool and behind the restaurant, but we would rather be near the pool than the ocean so this is wonderful for us. Staff is very helpful and pleasant and we have no complaints at all. Cleaning staff does a great job as well. While you are there you must go to dinner at the restaurant, it's fabulous! We had one of the best meals we've ever had in the Outer Banks there.
What was the nicest thing about this place is the grounds keeper, Don. He's been there for years and remembered us from our previous visit. He is the friendliest staff member they have and the most helpful. We were staying at the motel until Sunday afternoon until we could check in at the condo down the road we had booked for the rest of the week. Checkout at Owen's was 11:00 and we weren't going to be given our key to the condo until 3:00, maybe even 4:00 Sunday afternoon. We asked the office for a late checkout and they granted us one until 1:00 so we had somewhere to stay as long as possible. By this time we had other people who were going to the condo with us and had no where to wait for our condo keys. Don told us it was fine for us all to stay and swim in Owen's pool until we could check in at the condo, and no one in the office came over and threw us out of the pool, even though we technically were no longer guests at the hotel. We so appreciated this kindness!!! I highly recommend this motel to anyone staying at the Outer Banks and we will go back again next summer, that's for sure. See you then, Don!
