Great location, very helpful and friendly staff, but the walls are very thin so you can hear everything going on at your neighbors and they can hear you! Still wasn't a huge deal to us since everyone seemed to go to bed and wake up around the same time, but I could see how it would bother some.

I spent 2 nights here on a work related trip. Our room was very nice and overlooked the ocean. It was very quiet and we were not bothered by any noise. We arrived well before check in but our rooms were ready before 3 so that was nice. I like that all the villas connect by a long corridor. Drink... More

Spent 3 days there on business. Everyone was very pleasant and catered to our needs. Very Nice place would stay there again. I would recommend anyone to stay here and in the oceanfront rooms. Kept up very nicely.

The only problem that we experienced was that the hot tub was TOO HOT! Overall it was an excellent stay. But I will say that the layout of the hotel is awkward. I do not think that I have ever been through so many doors just walking to the ice machine or breakfast.

We stayed at this hotel the first time and we have had a wonderful time. Found this beach front hotel on line for pre-season rates. We could overlook the beach and the ocean from our balcony. On our first morning we experienced an awesome sun rise. Our stay was very pleasant and can recommend staying here. Myrtle Beach is only... More

My husband and I spent four days/three nights here and had a wonderful time. This is a simple beachfront property and what you are paying for is the old real estate mantra of "location, location, location". It could not be better situated on the island. We had an oceanfront room on the second floor, with a balcony and rocking chairs.... More

We were in need of a last minute hotel stay and were between this hotel and the Islander next door. Both hotels were small buildings connected by outdoor walkways with LOTS of stairs. The Ocean Isle had 1 elevator in the middle of the buildings but it still required stairs and going in and out of doors and hallways quite... More

This review will be a mixed one. The front desk staff was a little moody, sometimes friendly, sometimes not. The breakfast is "how would you like your carbs?" Cereal, bread for toast, bagels, muffins, make-your-own-waffles and oatmeal. Fruit was limited to individual cups of fruit cocktail. There was also some yogurt in the refrigerator and 3 kinds of juices to... More

The price was good. Great view from our balcony. We used the heated indoor pool and hot tub a number of times. It was wonderful. Breakfast was included and it was adequate. Mostly carbs but it was something to fill your tummy. Overall, a good experience. I would stay there again.

We picked a tough week for a trip to the North Carolina coast - right in the middle of the recent ice storm. But the Ocean Isle Inn was open and functioning. No complaints from us - this is a decent beach style hotel - great location right on the beach. Room was nice and I'm sure during the summer... More
