“Charming; fit us like a pair of our favorite old shoes!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

We happened upon Hollywood, FL, wanting to stay near the Ft. Lauderdale airport at the end of our Florida Keys trip. It was exactly what we needed and the best part of our trip. Breakfast and the morning newspaper in the courtyard. Beach chairs and bags of ice for our beverages. They thought of everything to make our stay pleasant. We will definitely return.

I just completed a 7 night stay here at The Ocean Inn. I am sad to leave today and hope to come back soon! It's a great place to stay in Hollywood Beach. It's well located -- just a 1 minute walk to the boardwalk/beach. The room was clean, quiet, and well equipped. The entire staff is great -- props to Philip, Scott, and Joey as well as the woman who does housekeeping. There is a free breakfast in the morning with cereal and AWESOME home made muffins.

This is our fourth time staying here and is always a charm. This is a small motel right off A1A but in another world. Very clean rooms, quiet, and cleverly laid out to fit your needs. The courtyard is wonderfully landscaped and provides a completely restful experience in a tropical garden. If you are looking for a big hotel experience, look elsewhere. Only a half block from the beach and they supply chairs, towels, etc.

Since this is one of our favorite places to stay in Florida, this is a winner of the Jimmy Award!

My grown son, daughter and I just returned from 4 nights in Paradise at the Ocean Inn in Hollywood, Florida. The location is one short block to the boardwalk and beach. The hotel is clean and comfortable with a refrigerator. The shower was great with consistently hot water and the air conditioner worked well. There are several areas on the property to sit and relax surrounded by tropical trees and flowers. We were able to borrow beach chairs to enjoy on the beach. They provided a delicious breakfast of assorted cereals, coffee, muffins and fruit each day until 11:30 which was generous. We enjoyed taking walks up and down the boardwalk and swimming in the ocean. Staying at the Ocean Inn made the stay even better. They are pet-friendly too.

After a long 10 hour drive from Marietta Ga, I arrived at another hotel only to find it was under total renovations...at 8pm I began a search for a hotel 2 days before Christmas....lucky for me I found Philip & the Ocean Inn,. He was was able to accommodate me & my 2 little furry friends Paolo & Speck for 3 nights. Philip is a gem! I can't wait to return to the Ocean Inn. Pet friendly, beach is a few short steps....home atmosphere...parking...beach chairs available...outdoor shower to rinse off....lovely center courtyard to relax day & night...BBQ grill.....park the car...and walk everywhere.....but I can tell you it is difficult to leave.....Philip if I ever open an INN ...you are mine!!!!!! smooches from angela, paolo & speck

We stayed at the Ocean Inn and we LOVED it! Upon arrival Phillip welcomed us and told us about the area. He gave us a history lesson and asked if I wanted a glass of wine all within the same sentence! He is amazing and would have got us anything we asked for! The rooms are quaint and very clean. We walked just a short walk to the boardwalk and enjoyed the beaches! Our flight was very early on our departure day so Philip gave us breakfast items the night before so we wouldn't be hungry at the airport. We had a great time and made some new friends! We hope to visit again in the future!

The main plus at the Ocean Inn is the manager Philip whose genuinely warm and easy manner signals his contentment with his job and life in general. After a long drive from the Keys it was nice to arrive to his handwritten note and homemade cookies. Our room was like a mini apartment with seating area, bedroom end, dining area and extensive kitchen and bathroom. Storage facilities were extensive, the decor was pleasing and everything was spotlessly clean. There was even a little Christmas tree in the sitting area. The bathroom was generously stocked with travel size toiletries and toothpaste.
Eating breakfast in the garden made a nice change. We were just staying one night so being just a minute from the fantastic beach meant there was time for a walk before checking out.
The Inn is on Ocean Drive so there is traffic noise but in view of the positive aspects this is a small niggle. Maybe a little more choice in the breakfast menu would be welcome, though Philip's homemade blueberry muffins were great. I did miss orange juice and a choice of fruit. I also missed having a hairdryer in the room. Considering the generously stocked bathroom this seemed an odd sort of omission.

Room Tip: For an extended stay the rooms with the kitchen do give loads of space.
