Loved the rest and relaxation we received while staying at the Ocean Isle Inn. The property and rooms were very clean and comfortable. Although we experienced some unusual frigid temps of 16 degrees and rain we had a nice stay. The pillows and bed were very comfortable and new. Everyone we encountered was very nice. The front desk was very... More

Love this location. Our room was clean and decorated nicely. Great balcony with two rocking chairs. The bed and pillows were so comfy. The lady at the front desk wasn't so friendly but she wasn't horrible either. I just hope for better customer service when checking into an Inn.

We visit Ocean Isle several times a year and always stay at Ocean Isle Inn. The staff is friendly, the beds are comfy and the view is just what we need! It's also close to other points of interest. The Ocean Isle Inn feels like home and that's good enough for us!

Had a great relaxing visit with my wife, nice room, great bed & pillows. Close to dining and our favorite "Sharky's", near Calabash for seafood, and a close day trip to Myrtle Beach and shopping. Can take leisurely ride along the coast or faster on highway.

We choose this Inn from their web site and from Trip Advisor reviews. Checking in we found out the indoor pool and spa were closed. The web site said it would be ready. Only two wooden hard chairs to sit on. The TV was very small without any upgrade channels. We had to endure noise from the above room, where... More

Got a great off season price on our ocean front room. It was clean, well equipped, friendly staff and a nice breakfast (cereal, yogurt, bread items, waffles, coffee, juice etc) Inn was within walking distance of town but only one restaurant was open sine it was off season. Only 25 miles to North Mrytle Beach so you can find plenty... More

I really can't review a "stay" at Ocean Isle Inn because, due to a family emergency, we had to cancel at the last minute. We were very impressed with the speed with which our refund was processed and the quick response time after we emailed the management. We hope to reschedule our visit to Ocean Isle Beach in the near... More

My fiance and I are getting married on OIB and have a block of rooms at the Ocean Isle Inn. We got a first hand look/experience in advance or our family/friends. We're happy we have the room block here!

The Inn was quite comfortable. Clean rooms and beautiful location on the beach. However the internet service was not secured and the connection was unusable. When we asked they said they were hit by lightening and may need a reboot. We asked about it a few times but were told they had great service on their computer in the lobby... More

We were very happy with our choice of this hotel over Thanksgiving weekend. The ocean view room was clean and comfortable, but the best part was being practically right on the sand. What a nice view! Breakfast was basic, nothing hot except the waffles, but that was fine with us. Will definitely stay here again.
