“Wonderful vacation hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

We booked in with ease and greeted by a welcoming hostess, can't believe I have forgotten her name, she was lovely. Room was wonderful and you could not beat the location. Ten steps and you were on the beach or boardwalk. Our room was lovely, more than we had expected. Philip was great to check out information on the internet for us, re bus routes and attraction opening times.We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We had 19, it was large area. Didn't check on the others, so can't compare.

Great location/value being only a 2 minute walk from the beach, loved the convenience of being able to go back and forth whenever we wanted to. We arrived after reception had closed but were greeted by Phil the next morning with a big smile and even complimentary drinks! Such a nice guy, put us completely at ease! The inn has such a homely feel to it, from the way it's decorated to the tropical garden where you can chill out on the hammock if in need of a bit of shade (see photo). Breakfast, which included homemade muffins, was served until late which was ideal for us having drove all the way down from Quebec and playing catch up on sleep! We especially loved the BBQ which we made use of 4 nights out of our 5 night stay, but it was a shame that only one of the four lighters seemed to work to ignite the gas. However, it was so peaceful eating outside, it was almost as if we were the only guests staying there come late evening. One evening, we had a nice chat with the blonde girl (didn't catch her name!) who also works at the inn and who had some really interesting stories to tell. We checked out super early to start the long journey home so unfortunately didn't get to say goodbye but we had a great stay so thank you Ocean Inn!

The Ocean Inn is a delightful place to stay. We have stayed here several times and will continue to do so. There is construction going on close by, but it did not impact our stay. The hotel is decorated fun and funky...a true gem. The hotel grounds are lovely and it is such a pleasure to spend some time in the garden/courtyard area. Philip (with one L) is a great host and will insure you are comfortable and have what you need. We love to walk the broadwalk to local dining and the beach is beautiful and so clean! This is not a chain hotel...it is so much better! We will be back as many times as we are in the area. Thank you Philip and Ocean Inn for a lovely stay...can't wait to come back! (Now I need to go buy some paint and paint my house like the Ocean Inn!!!)

Great position close to beach and restaurant in walking distance. The room was large, clean, and well equipped. Cute and pretty courtyard garden with hammock. Complimentary cookies were a nice touch and welcome after a long journey. Really good value and price. Would definitely use again.

Room Tip: We had a suite on the second floor.

Dear Debbie H,
Thank you for taking the time to post a review on your past stay with us here at the Ocean Inn hotel.
We have our complimentary parking as well as we provide parking passes to our guests so they can park easily on the street.
We take our guest safety very seriously and we have management who lives on the property, as well as security cameras that are monitored 24 hours a day.
I also want to apologies for the noise coming from the constriction of condominium. Unfortunately this is something which is out of our control.
Our office hours are until 5.30 PM and then there is always somebody on the phone during the evening.
I was surprised that the room was not up to your cleanness standards. We are noted for our cleanness and have received "The White Glove" award from Superior Small Lodging for the past 7 years, receiving a perfect score and have received no other complains from guests.

Thank you for staying with us, and we hope to have an opportunity to serve you again.

Best regards,

Veronika

The personal service and ambiance was second to none. Phil was wonderful to work with and even hooked us up with a great transportation service, LJ Transport. The location is perfect as it is a 1 minute walk to the Hollywood Beach boardwalk. The property is very "local" and never pretends to be a luxury hotel. The staff is honest, hard working and will go to great lengths to make your time there a real pleasure. TripAdvisor did not mislead us on this property. Great choice!
