I love the Ocean Isle Inn because it's simple and a little old fashioned, but has everything you need in a wonderful location. You can park your car and never use it again all weekend because you can walk to restaurants, mini-golf and stores — even to church on the beach on Sunday. Very friendly staff, too!

Very close to the ocean and very quiet. It was a nice hideaway for the weekend. Everything we needed was pretty much on the premises. Liked having private beach, even with public access. Very quiet even in mid-summer..

We recently stayed during a very busy weekend for a family reunion. Everyone we dealt with was exceptionally friendly, accommodating and anxious to make our stay more pleasant. Our first visit, but we will definitely return.

We chose to stay here rather than Myrtle Beach. Loved that the beaches were not crowded yet close enough to Myrtle to do things. Hotel was nice, could use a little updating and stronger Wi-Fi but overall a nice place for families! Staff was friendly and parking was good!

We stayed for two nights for a get away weekend. I brought my two grown children and their Aunt. The hotel is right on a sugar sand beach. The beach is NOT crowded. The location is excellent. We felt very safe. The hotel is older but updated nicely. They have very comfortable beds and coffee in the room along with... More

Cannot beat this destination for beach lovers. You practically have the beach to yourself! Rooms are always clean and comfortable. Enjoy the complimentary breakfast, but be sure to pack your own fresh fruit as they do not provide any.

The best part of this inn is that it is clean. The staff is friendly and there was no real problem with the rooms. We have stayed there several times and I like that they have changed to the white duvet (much nicer than the old bedspreads). The rooms could use a little updating ( maybe flat screen tv's and...
