I really enjoyed my stay. I would highly recommend this place. People are friendly. The place is beautiful. Rooms are nice and clean. They have a wonderful breakfast. The beach area is private and beautiful.

The staff at the Ocean Isle Inn are very accommodating. My only complaint is the noise. You can hear the constant door slamming from the other guests. The room above us sounded like elephants were walking around.

We had only made the reservation after reading and looking at pics of the sight. We were disappointed. The facility needs a redo. They have winter damage and the common areas need refurbishing. The room appeared to be recently refurbished but they put in memory foam beds that are difficult to sleep on. The sheets don't fit well. We only... More

Overall great stay. Love the indoor pool. Will be back next year. Suggest improvement in mattress though. All amenities that were promised were there. Cleaning service did not bother us but did ask if we needed anything and tried to keep us stocked on towels and coffee.

I have very mixed feelings about this place. The oceanfront balcony and the view were wonderful. I enjoyed the beach and my proximity to it immensely. Unfortunately, I will probably not be back because of the drawbacks of the property, which are numerous: Pros: Oceanfront location Oceanfront balcony Nice indoor pool and hot tub Very nice staff Cons: The smell....

The hotel was kind of a bungalow with one elevator, no restaurant, grill or bar. Therefore, one would need to go out. The indoor pool and spa were clean and comfortable. The view was spectacular as a result of the natural preserved beauty of the NC coastline.

The location was great . Oceanfront room had a great view. The balcony for morning and evening use was a plus. The room was big and clean. Having a small refrigerator and microwave in the room was helpful.

So, on the plus side, most of the staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms are very basic, but that's to be expected with a beach hotel. It is right on the beach, which is wonderful. And the rooms were cleaned and kept up, although dated. But, on the negative side- enough to keep us from returning. There was supposed... More

Our first visit to Ocean Isle Inn....not a bad stay, but quite honestly, probably will not be on our "return to" list. Our biggest concern was the mattresses...appeared to us that these have been in use too long....just not comfortable sleeping. In all fairness it appears that the property is fairly well cared for, but could use some good general... More
