Really great ocean views, nice rooms with great sleeping, and two pools, and breakfast (great Coffee and the nicest breakfast lady!) and people! Our check in with Marie was wonderful and she was just so helpful and cute, and funny and gave great advice on "where to" all our food and entertainment questions! Only 2 nights, but couldn't have been... More

The room was well appointed. It had a great view and was spacious. The way the furnishings were arranged and the refrigerator, etc. was good. The room had an air of elegance. If you have accessibility issues, getting to your room could be a challenge though.

This is our second year vacation at Ocean Isle Inn. The staff is very nice and helpful. Ocean Isle is very family oriented. The housekeeping employees kept our room clean and clean towels and other essentials. We enjoyed our stay. Beds were comfortable and the rocking chairs on the balcony were great to sit in and watch the ocean waves.... More

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!

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!

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.
