Enjoyed our visit to the Ocean Isle Inn. The rooms were very clean and more than adequate room for 2 people. The balcony is very spacious and offers great views of sunrises, activity on the beach and the nearby pier. The Inn is made up of 7 individual buildings, each housing 2 floors of rooms (three oceanfront on each floor... More

first of all the rooms had paper thin walls, so if the neighbors have a fight or noisy children, you hear it all. checked out the hot tub and indoor pool, very cloudy, looked oily, there were gnats on our balcony and fruit flies in the breakfast area, conference room, for what you pay for a night stay, the parking...

Great value and great location! All rooms have a REAL ocean front view, right at/on the dune line. Small fridge for grocery items (sandwhich making stuff, canned sodas, coffee creamer) . Rooms are basic two queen beds. If you have a family a roll away could be added. Fitting 5 would be tight but you'll only be there to sleep,... More

Great get away with an ocean front balcony! Easy walk to the beach. It was my husband's 60th birthday and they left a complimentary bottle of nice wine for us to enjoy. Nice touch. The breakfast was very tasty and my husband loved the waffle machine. The room was neat and clean. The air conditioner was a bit noisy, so... More

Very good value. Clean rooms in a good location. Nice balcony with good beach view. Close enough to the grand strand without all the negatives like traffic and noise. Many nice golf courses nearby. Would definitely recomend for .a quick get away.

Where do I begin!!? This Inn has got to be one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. My fiance and I stayed here because we're scoping OIB for our wedding next year.

This is our 2nd stay at Ocean Isle Inn and we love the proximity of the beach. The Inn is also within walking distance to the small town- Museum of Coastal Carolinas, minature golf, restaurants, but still away from main area so it's very quiet at night. This time we stayed in the "Java" building and it was more convenient... More

I just returned from the Ocean Isle Inn and it was wonderful. I really enjoyed the location, amenities, easy parking and room (Bali building). It was quite a different experience from a larger hotel chain. Even though I did not have ocean view I was very pleased with my overall vacation to Ocean Isle Inn. The staff was courteous and...
