My wife and I played hooky for a day this week. We hadn't been to the beach yet this year and found the Ocean Isle Inn. It is right on the beach. Indoor and outdoor pools. A very basic breakfast is included. It had good ratings on TripAdvisor and we found the ratings to be very accurate. The hotel was... More

This small hotel is well located in the heart of Ocean Isle Beach, near the pier and the handful of restaurants on the island. The beach itself is beautiful. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The beds are comfortable. Breakfast is included and is about average for hotel breakfasts. There are both indoor and outdoor pools well maintained. Overall,... More

I blindly booked our 4 day family vacation with Ocean Isle Inn. I had no previous knowledge of the hotel or the area so I was pleasantly surprised when I found that the Inn was right across the bridge and within walking distance of almost everything needed for a fun, family beach trip. Pros: Our room was very clean and... More

Great hotel right on the beach, very quite,very spacious rooms, we love the tile floors, so much cleaner than carpet. The breakfast each morning was great, there were waffles, oatmeal, yogurt, bagels, toast. A nice variety. We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed our stay so much we hated to leave. The only thing i didn't like is there is no... More

When I travel, I don't like to drive anywhere once I'm there. This hotel is in a great spot. You have a great beach in front and can walk the beach for miles if you want. You can also walk to the local coffee shops, restaurants, ice cream places, shops, playground, museum, etc. The hotel is basic, nothing fancy. Also... More

Pros - Loved the ocean front room, price was very reasonable, amenities were nice, cleaning staff was very good, check-in and check-in out friendly and courteous, breakfast was okay albeit minimal, rooms were presentable as soon as you walked in, close to just about anything that you would want to do (putt-putt, restaurants, the pier, etc). Cons - Mold growing... More

We stayed at the Ocean Isle Inn for a long weekend. It was a great location...walking distance to many restaurants and shops. My only complaints would be that it is somewhat dated and our room a a very musty smell.

The location was perfect, right on beach! The rooms were clean. The breakfast was ok, but nice to have. The breakfast could of offered more variety. The bathroom could use a little updating, but overall would stay there again.

We have an annual training conference and book 40 rooms for two nights. Reservations and check-in was a breeze thanks to the professionalism of Manager Lee and Debbie at the front desk. We did have a few glitches (Not the hotel's fault), but Lee went over and above to make accommodations for our guests on a sold-out Spring Break Week.... More

We had a great time at the inn. Walking distance to all the restaurants, pier, ice cream shop and more. First floor rooms a little noisy when you have noisy neighbors above but great ocean views. Would definitely stay there again. Rooms were clean and staff was friendly.
