I was there for a rugby game. The room was spacious and clean, comfortable, kitchen a bit spartan, bathroom bowl limited. The main problem was Wifi. The sign says Free Wi Fi. Well it was free but in my room it made only the very occasional scratchy appearance. The staff tried hard to investigate it but did not seem to have a solution.

Room Tip: Maybe test the Wi Fi if that;s what you want.

Owens Motel was a great choice for us. We had 4 nights here and no regrets. A huge unit with extremely comfy couches, and fast wifi almost made working a pleasure. The bed was brilliant, and the unit was clean, comfortable and well set up. It's in a handy location, and we'd happily return. The owner was very friendly and welcoming, and this always make a difference.

Visited Dunedin for a concert, this motel was a great location only being about a 15minute walk to the venue. A little further to the octagon though. Good value for money, room was more then big enough! Only downful was the shower was horrible & lighting in room wasn't the best.

We enjoyed our 3 night Owens stay. The staff were helpful and the room was comfortable. We loved the Motels siting on George Street with the Otago Museum a short walk away and a Night and Day Store a few steps away. The room's shortfalls were a bathhroom basin that was too small and a bathroom mirror that was too high.

Normally would finish up a review with tip on best room, but will start here by saying the units have poor sound insulation. We stayed in No.1 which is next to main road and also unfortunately had managers living above who stayed up very late. So not much sleep despite comfy bed.

Shame, as the unit, although a bit dated, was spacious, very clean and regularly serviced during our 3 night stay. Helpful staff (no issues with our very late arrival), handy for the Uni if attending a function there and bonus of off street parking.

Overall, represents good value for money, but make sure you nab an upstairs unit to the rear of the complex.
