Don’t get me wrong by the tone of this review. We really did have a fun, relaxing weekend celebrating the marriage of a family member. Overall, The Ocean Isle Inn was in decent to poor shape. I do have some complaints though. 1.) TV stopped working one night and it was not fixed until the next day. I was a... More

Nice place but unhappy about noisy people banging on the ceiling all the time. Told by reception that there was nothing they could do as it was not after 10 at night.it woke us up every morning! Other than that it was excellent, room large, clean , well maintained and right on the beach. Just what we wanted for some... More

We will stay here again! The a/c is awesome, works very well our room was so chilly it felt nice after day on beach!! The bed is absolutely amazing, sooo soft like sleeping on a cloud!! My husband tosses and turns a lot at night in his sleep and on that mattress my side didn't even move!! Loved it!

I've been staying at ocean Isle Inn for years. It's usually for a few days each summer. My sister and I discovered OIB about ten years ago when we were tired of the traffic in Myrtle Beach and decided to go for a drive. OIB is the perfect beach if you're looking for just a BEACH, no hustle and bustle.... More

We just returned from a stay at Ocean Isle Inn. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. All the staff we had contact with were pleasant and helpful. Tile floors mean no wet carpet smell from wet bathing suits. Lots of stairs but the elevator handles that. The only accommodations Ive been to where someone actually left the check in... More

This was a stop over on the way to the beach (in Florida) for the week. We traveled this leg with friends and we decided since it was just 2 days/nights that it would be ok, but it was just not up to our preference and rating. Maybe for 2 people, but really cramped for 2 adults and 2 kids.... More

I really thought that I had booked an ocean view room, but had a road view. The only good thing about this was my husband got to see deer two different times. The mattresses were terrible. The only time that the floor was swept was when I asked a maid to borrow her broom. I liked the proximity to the... More

My family was very pleased with the clean and well maintained accomidations. The staff was very friendly. The gazebo and outdoor pool area was beautiful day and night. The hot tub was also nice. The rooms are the typical hotel room, but clean and nicely decorated. The only down fall was the limited park (however there is parking in the... More

From the minute you check-in you are made to feel important. I loved the location we were quite literally on the beach. Rooms were large, clean and had an amazing ocean view. Air con was a bit noisy. Staff were helpful, friendly and cheerful. If you want a relaxed beach getaway, Ocean Isle is definitely the place. Not too crowded.... More

This was a decent place. The location was close to town, within walking distance to a few restaurants. The breakfast was filling, and there were several choices. The rooms were cozy, and clean. Some negatives were that the pool could have been cleaner, there is no where to hang wet towels or suits.
