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.

Good location; liked balcony with rockers and ocean view! Rooms were clean and there were plenty of towels. Liked having a sink outside of the bathroom close to the refrigerator. Breakfast was ok; expected fresh fruit when they mentioned fruit. All the employees were very nice and helpful. The remote control for the TV did not work correctly in our... More

Made arrangements at Ocean Isle Inn to cater our daughters wedding a few years ago. The Inn set aside a block of rooms for guests from out of town, arranged for a minister to perform ceremony on the beach and set up chairs and decorations. They also arranged for music and hot and cold foods. Overall everyone seemed to have... More
