We found the Ocean Inn on-line and decided to give it a try at the end of our Florida travels. We had never been to Hollywood Beach and wasn't sure what to expect. What a GREAT FIND! We absolutely love the area and especially the Ocean Inn. If you're into the "high rise" experience, this is not for you. I wanted the "Old Florida" that I knew from years ago, quaint, friendly and fun. Phillip and the entire staff were amazing from the moment we checked in to the moment we departed - friendly and so very accommodating.
The coffee in the morning is very good as well as the continental style goodies included. The property is extremely clean and maintained yet keeping the vintage charm. The courtyard area is welcoming with lots of shady spots to sit with a good book or even take a snooze in the hammock.
The location is great with on-site parking (a must near the beach) and just a short stroll to the beautiful beach and restaurants. If you're traveling with a well-behaved dog - you're dog is welcome too! And, within walking distance from the Ocean Inn there is a beautiful dog beach and a dog park within a couple of miles. No dogs are allowed on the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk. We liked it so much we're going back in May for a week and this time bringing our best friend - our dog Bob!
