first of all the rooms had paper thin walls, so if the neighbors have a fight or noisy children, you hear it all. checked out the hot tub and indoor pool, very cloudy, looked oily, there were gnats on our balcony and fruit flies in the breakfast area, conference room, for what you pay for a night stay, the parking...

Great value and great location! All rooms have a REAL ocean front view, right at/on the dune line. Small fridge for grocery items (sandwhich making stuff, canned sodas, coffee creamer) . Rooms are basic two queen beds. If you have a family a roll away could be added. Fitting 5 would be tight but you'll only be there to sleep,... More

Great get away with an ocean front balcony! Easy walk to the beach. It was my husband's 60th birthday and they left a complimentary bottle of nice wine for us to enjoy. Nice touch. The breakfast was very tasty and my husband loved the waffle machine. The room was neat and clean. The air conditioner was a bit noisy, so... More

Very good value. Clean rooms in a good location. Nice balcony with good beach view. Close enough to the grand strand without all the negatives like traffic and noise. Many nice golf courses nearby. Would definitely recomend for .a quick get away.

Where do I begin!!? This Inn has got to be one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. My fiance and I stayed here because we're scoping OIB for our wedding next year. Ocean Isle Inn is now our top choice! So we checked in at the front office. The lady was very helpful and took us around to where... More

This is our 2nd stay at Ocean Isle Inn and we love the proximity of the beach. The Inn is also within walking distance to the small town- Museum of Coastal Carolinas, minature golf, restaurants, but still away from main area so it's very quiet at night. This time we stayed in the "Java" building and it was more convenient... More

I just returned from the Ocean Isle Inn and it was wonderful. I really enjoyed the location, amenities, easy parking and room (Bali building). It was quite a different experience from a larger hotel chain. Even though I did not have ocean view I was very pleased with my overall vacation to Ocean Isle Inn. The staff was courteous and...

My husband and I decided on a "stay-cation" this year and chose Ocean Isle for the proximity to our home. In researching inns on the island, Ocean Isle Inn met all of our "must haves". Our ocean front room was clean, comfortable and ready upon our arrival. The staff was very cordial and accommodating. We especially appreciated the inn's location,... More

We stayed here last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. This year was another story. We did enjoy it and they have an excellent staff that is friendly and professional, but some things are out of everybody's control. We booked out stay for August of 2014 in December of 2013. Ocean view with a balcony. We had that last year and... More
