This is a great place to stay on OIB. Free breakfast, clean hotel. No complaints with us. Perfect location. Nice size room with balcony and rockers. You can walk to anything, the pier, putt putt, Drift Coffee, or the creamery!

We love Ocean Isle Beach and Ocean Isle Inn. The staff at the Inn are such a happy bunch and would go above and beyond to assure your comfort. The view from the oceanfront balconies is beautiful. We are making this our yearly vacation destination.

Everything was very clean! Great views of the ocean! Very accommodating with our 10month old. Even offered a crib in room for our stay. The indoor and outdoor pools were kid friendly with depth. And hot tub was amazing after a long drive!

My Mom and I took a girls getaway, spent 5 days here and it was great. The room was very clean, even passed my mom's clean test:) Location was perfect. Close to restaurants and shopping. Would definitely go again.

Great location, great staff both helpful & friendly. Enjoyed having pools at end of day. Nice quiet area to walk around. Local restaurants within walking distance. Great location if just want to chill on beach. Hotel overall was very nice. Only minor complaint need to clean little things like towel bars. But will stay again.

First of all let me say that I have stayed here on numerous occasions for many many years. Found broken glass on the floor is our room on check in. Found mold on the bathroom wall. Pools and hot tib are nasty. Going to try the Islander Inn next door for our next trip.

I've stayed here regularly for probably 15 years. The positive reviews are no doubt from folks that remember how nice it "was". Sadly time and management has taken it's toll. You will have a safe trip if you stay here as ocean isle is a family beach. However, renting a house, condo here or going to one of the equally... More

Very nice place for the money. Best staff I have ever met in the hospitality business. Rooms were spotless, nice A/C, and the breakfasts were awesome. Staff were/are accommodating. Within walking distance of pier and places to play mini golf. Will come again.
