We stayed here while attending the OIB Oyster Festival because the Inn is within walking distance of the festival-very convenient! We enjoyed the view from our second floor room balcony. The hotel is showing some age, especially the furniture, but it is clean and still a very nice facility. Very comfortable beds loaded with pillows. Breakfast was a little carb... More

Stayed here to combine beach time and looking at real estate in the area. Very nice staff and roomy rooms right on the beach. Small indoor and outdoor pools and basic breakfast. There is a small balcony, great for coffee and the sunrise AM and a cocktail and the sunset PM. The only issue we had was the noise (if... More

We just got back from our stay at Ocean Isle Inn and we have no complaints. Rooms were clean, staff was friendly and the view from our balcony was absolutely gorgeous. The inn was within walking distance to pier, restaurants, ice cream shop, and surf shops. Indoor pool and hot tub was an extra bonus. Our kids loved it! Would... More

The hotel is showing some age as most things at the beach do pretty quick, but still a very nice facility. Very comfy beds loaded with pillows and quiet room overlooking the ocean. Breakfast had your normal breakfast, waffles, cereal, fruit cups, bread, muffins and an assortment of breakfast sandwiches that you could warm up in the microwave. The little... More

This is a great place to stay> Friendly, courteous and right on beach. I would recommend to anyone as a great place to spend a few days on the beach. Everyone was very nice and the rooms were nice and roomy. The views were excellent.

First, best location on the beach. The front desk was friendly, room was clean, but lacked comfort and amenities for the price we paid. The continental breakfast was nothing special. Loved the pool area and the VERY short walk to the beach. We rented a couple of chairs and an umbrella during our stay which was very convenient.
