“Small Inn with a Good Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2010

We selected the inn based on trip advisor reviews. It was a short drive from FLL which was great since we had flown all day. We arrived just prior to the office closing for the night. We were able to dump our stuff in the room and walk the short distance to the boardwalk/beach. The staff were friendly and helpful, but the room was tired. The wall ac was loud, the refrigerator was a bit rusty, the tv and remote didn't operate properly, and the closet doors weren't hung properly so they were difficult to use. On the positive side, the grounds were cute, the room was clean, and the internet connection worked well. We did book a standard room, so perhaps an upgraded room would have been nicer. Parking was available and the office did offer towels, etc. for beach use if desired.

Nestled between the inter-coastal waterway and the Ocean, attractions were only a short walk or drive away. The Ocean Inn provides a great launching point for all types of activities. The Ocean Inn was well prepared to provide the best visit possible by ensuring that we had everything we need. Beach towels, Beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas and laundry facilities. We found the staff very friendly and knowledgeable of the local area. They accomodated all of our needs and were very focused to ensure our stay was the very best. We would highly reccommend the Ocean Inn to anyone who is looking for a quiet, secure and relaxing location that has all the comforts of home while enjoying being away from home. We'll be back.

What a charming place to stay! The grounds are lovely, the rooms are funky and fun and the staff is wonderful. One minute walk to the beach and the broadwalk. There are places to eat within a nice walking distance. We loved our stay and hope to return! Hollywood Beach is beautiful!

My wife and I went for a family event for the weekend and booked our room based on reviews we read on this site. We were initially disappointed with the dated conditions of the rooms. Without central a/c, the cycling of the room air conditioners kept us up half the night. But we spoke with management and they did everything possible to accommodate us - and did so gracefully. We were upgraded to a suite and found it much more amenable. I can't speak highly enough about the service. Our recommendation: book the best room available - it's a class above the standard and well worth it.
One more point: Hollywood is no South Beach so rent a car.

I chose this location based on the excellent reviews it had received. I was a bit skeptical since the reviews were all glowing. The reviews were right. Totally relaxing, 200 to 300 feet from the beach, a great layout of the rooms all leading to a great courtyard with numerous nooks and crannies for seclusion. You even have a hammock to use if so inclined. The breakfast was your normal cereal and coffeee an juice, but was highlighted by fresh muffins each morning. I personally enjoyed each morning with the peace and quiet, a cup of coffee and the breakfast. The location was small, but the room we had was great for the 3 of us. The Hollywood board walk had many cafe style places to eat and your usual shops selling the normal things. I found the area to be very safe with a small town feel. I have reccommended this location to friends and hope to return in the near future.

I had a great time here, they made me feel very welcome and at home. They have a public computer if you don't have one to use and free wi/fi.The room & bathroom was very clean with a comfy bed. Did not have a problem wth any of the appliances's.The outside area was a nice garden to relax and chat in. Excellent location, the beach is 2 min away with plenty of parking. I would come back again.
