“A beautiful vacation spot.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

The Ocean Inn is prime location for Hollywood Beach. The courtyard is exceptionally quiet and comfortable. There is a short walk to the beach, Broadwalk, restaurants, bike rental, Grandstand (concerts nightly) and bars. We would suggest not renting a car (traffic is horrendous!) and taking advantage of the trolley and water taxi. Those 2 transports will take you to Publix, Walgreens, Young Circle, Old Hollywood and various stops along the Broadwalk. There is also taxi service and a busline. Service (Philip and Joe) was outstanding, these guys are awesome. The rooms are in need of some tender loving care and Veronica (new owner as of March) has a plan to do some upgrading within the coming year. All in all the Ocean Inn is The place to stay in Hollywood Beach--only 11 rooms so book early.

Room Tip: The 2 upper rooms are awesome.

super service, very accommodating. We arrived early and our room was ready. We had a late flight and they allowed us to leave our car, borrow beach chairs and towels, way past check out time. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was firm and comfortable. There was a small refrigerator in the room. Our only criticism was that the shower head needed to be replaced. Even though it is on rt A1A, it was surprisingly quiet and it is a short walk to the boardwalk/beach. Traffic can be challenging on rt A1A, but we just went up to the state park to turn around and head south. The owners really care about their property and have created a lovely courtyard, with many private spots to sit.

The Ocean Inn is a great place to come and relax, at a great price, an arms length from the beach. The people who run this place are some of the nicest people on earth and will do everything they can to make your stay a pleasant one. The internet wasn't super dependable, but the breakfast every morning was very nice and the courtyard is such a great place chill out and meet other guests. Loved it!

If your interested in a quaint small hotel this is it. The service was excellent. As for the room it was dated back to 1950, the beds in the room was poor. If you laid down you would sink in the middle and your feet were higher then your head. The room had a strong deortiz smell when you entered. The area is similar to Pacific Beech California. The beech was clean, however by the waters edge there was alot of trash. The Florida keys are a far better experience.

Our room had a full kitchen and a very comfortable bed, along with a futon and TV. Bathroom was clean and the decor was bright and beachy. The courtyard is an oasis for comfort and relaxation. In the morning there was self-serve coffee (good, quality coffee, I must add) to sip while relaxing in the courtyard. Inn staff is friendly and helpful. Only one block from the beach--it is a short stroll down the side of the Inn--you don't have to cross any main streets to access the beach. I was really impressed with the beach near the Ocean Inn; it had gorgeous white sand and turquoise water. Sadly, we only spent one night here, but I will return for a longer stay and some quality beach time. Highly recommended!

Highly recommended.
Sweet B&B just one block away from the beach. Our host Philip was very personable, helpful and eager to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Location is close to fine dining and activity center.
We will definitely return to this lovely abode.

If you want a large property with all the "bells & whistles" this may not be the place for you.
Here's a place where you can get up-close & personal with the other guests while enjoying a clean room. Manager, Phil Friday makes it all work as he greets you like a long-lost friend & makes sure you are comfortable & satisfied. He'll provide you with beach chairs; beach towels; umbrellas; suntan lotion and just about anything else you may need for an enjoyable day on the beach (and the beautiful beach & promenade are only a very short walk away). Every morning there's coffee; pastries & cereal provided in a comfortable, garden-type setting.
My only complaints would be---a rather weak wi-fi signal; and an air-conditioner that was a bit more quiet.
