“Value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

The place was very cozy and by the beach which makes it practical for a relaxed vacation. I really enjoyed the garden of the place which was perfect to lay back and enjoy a book or just sip on a wine. Reminded me of a beautiful garden and patio of a family house.

Stayed March 2013, traveled with friends

My wife and I just got back from a five night stay at the Inn. Phillip, Joe and Veronica (the new owner) were very friendly and helpful from recomending good restaurants to calling cabs. It is nothing fancy but if you like old Florida motels this is the place. The Broadwalk and beach is one block up . They have beach towels, chairs and umbrellas for the taking. Nice garden seating and okay breakfast. Could have some juices for those that do not drink coffee. Will return.

my husband and I stayed at this inn during a chilly March and were very happy with our choice, Philip is very welcoming and full of info if it is your first visit to Hollywood, we had a large room with a kitchen which suited us very well, as we get tired of eating out while traveling, however, the boardwalk is steps away with a variety of restaurants
this inn is small and a little retro but we found it comfortable and quiet with friendly fellow travelers, we would return

We cannot say enough about Ocean Inn. As if it wasn't enough that it was simply a great place to stay, it was literally about 250 steps from the beach.
As for the Inn itself, Philip couldn't have been a better host or more accommodating He made sure that we had coffee in our hands every morning and offered us about anything we could ever need to make our stay enjoyable. We pulled in for a one night stay, followed by two in Key West, and then back to the Ocean Inn for another. When we left the first time, Philip offered us information, hook ups and even asked if we needed to borrow a cooler. He was awesome!!
The property was truly lovely. Lots of shady quiet spots all worked into a little courtyard and a large center table for having breakfast...or any other meal. There was even a grill available for use. Our room (s) were both perfect. They were on the small size, BUT, we are not people who require our room to be conducive to running laps. Both rooms had king size beds, fridges, TVs, a coffee pot, silverware,and lots of places to unpack clothes. The second room also had a microwave and a little table and chairs. Perfect, perfect, perfect, SO happy we stumbled on this place.

A bit dated but very clean with a VERY helpful staff. Full kitchen and roomy room, but older TV (lots of channels though) and mushy bed. Location is great if you just want to hang out at a nice beach that isn't too tourist-y. Shuttle runs into the busy part of Hollywood but a couple eating spots are within walking distance. Very quiet considering it was right on the main road. Fresh baked muffins in the morning!!!

Room Tip: Small inn but our upstairs room (one of two) was very quiet and spacious

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.
