“Quaint Little Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We arrived and were immediately greeted for our one night stay. We were made to feel very welcomed here, shown where all the ammenities were located - beach chairs & umbrellas to use at beach, where breakfast would be set up, explanation of the phone if we needed anything at all. The patio area was a tropical oasis, with private sitting areas - great decor!! It was very reasonably priced and they also offered a discount for Florida residents. We really enjoyed our stay and thought it had everything we needed for the one night we were there. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because of the bed; it really was just way too bouncy for old bones (at 44) and our backs could not take more than than 6 hours of sleep we got on it. Other than that, we really enjoyed eveything else about this place and would return again. The beach was just one block away and there was free parking for the residents staying here also, which is a huge plus.

Room Tip: We were in Room 14 on the lower level and you could could hear noise from the people above us.

We had the good fortune of staying here for four nights in March 2013. We loved it and will definitely return next year. Philip and Joe could not have done more for us and certainly made us feel welcome. The location was excellent - right beside the Boardwalk and the Beach. The accomodations were good - clean, comfortable and certainly satisfactory. We enjoyed the continental breakfasts and the ambience of the beautiful garden area. Philip went way above the call of duty for us - looking after details for us that he anticipated. This Inn is a family owned operation and is a unique place. We really enjoyed it. We rated this realizing that this is not a large modern chain-style hotel. If you are looking for a clean,well kept,small, unique family style hotel with character- this is it.

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.

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
