We stayed at Owens Motel for 5 nights with our two sons (6, 1) after ditching our plans to camp due to the extreme heat. We were able to secure a room through Expedia for an extremely reasonable rate and were thrilled to have close beach access...literally just across the road. The motel is broken up into a few different sections and we were in the courtyard area. I was a bit hesitant at first about what the motel would be like as the outside does look a bit dated but were pleasantly surprised once we saw the room. It was very clean and did appear to be recently renovated. There was a fridge and a microwave which was great. The rooms were spacious and there was a table for dining at. The air conditioning unit worked well and was newer which we were grateful for after spending a hot day outside. Our room was always thoroughly cleaned daily and stocked with fresh linens. The motel was within close walking distance to all amenities and there was a reputable restaurant on site which we did not get a chance to try but the reviews suggest it is very good. There is also a swimming pool which the kids enjoyed and it was open quite late and there was no indication that it closed.
The beach is very close, just a short walk across the unbusy road and you are there, literally takes less than a minute. The motel does also offer oceanfront rooms and rooms on the oceanside of the road.
I would definitely stay at this motel again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a clean, simple and affordable place to stay that is beach accessible.
