“Relaxing getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Perfect location oceanfront suite with hotub.Staff very friendly, meals were reasonbly priced; the Georgia shrimp n grits was delicious. The grounds were neatly groomed and very clean. Live music Saturday night made for a relaxing yet fun time.

Room Tip: Rooms 100 thru 112 are better choice as away from main areas

here were several issues we had during our shourt stay here last weekend. The room next door had two dogs that barked throughout the night, the confirmation email stated that we would be in a room with a bath tub however we were placed in a handicap accessible room with open shower, and even though we paid an extra $20 for a late checkout we awoke to a loud noise and shaking room due to sharing a wall with housekeepings laundry room. It was just a short anniversary trip and we still had a great time but were let down by Oceancide Inn and Suites,

Room Tip: Stay away from room 817. It shares a wall with housekeepings laundry room!

Dear JoeBates11,

We were very troubled to see your comments posted. It sounds like you were just here overnight, and probably did not wish to report any disturbances while you were here. We sincerely regret the unpeaceful night of rest on our otherwise quiet island. Please contact me personally before your next visit. I'd like to make it up to you in some small way.

Regards,

Jason Smith

This hotel is perfect for families or anyone who loves nature. The ocean can be viewed from almost every room, the dolphins jump frequently, and the deer graze right out by the ocean. The pool is oceanfront and perfect for adults and children. The staff is fabulous and super friendly. Be sure to ask to meet Rose when you go! She is the BEST!! We have been coming to this hotel for 50 years and I LOVE it! It is older and has a few quirks but the benefits outweigh anything negative that could be said.

Oceanside Inn and Suites can't be beat for its location and views. The efficiencies are especially convenient with full-on views of the ocean. These rooms are spacious, with two double beds, a kitchen, living/sitting area, and balcony (second floor) or patio (ground floor).

Caveats include the condition of the facilities. Some, but not all, rooms have been refurbished. Conditions of the furniture range from brand new to worn and stained. The same goes for conditions of appliances and kitchenware. While some rooms show wear and tear, they are generally clean.

As with most facilities of 1950's vintage, things can go awry. Our toilet had a mind of its own, and began flushing itself one evening. The next day, the chain broke and it wouldn't flush at all. We called the desk, and within an hour maintenance arrived and quickly handled the repair.

With all its peculiarities, we hope that Oceanside Inn & Suites maintains its unique character. Returning to Oceanside year after year, is like visiting a favorite relative: Familiar, charming, and a bit quirky.

Dear HomeGoneHome,

We thought your comments were spot-on, and glad that you recognize the nostalgia in a historic hotel like Oceanside Inn and Suites. Our team is working hard to preserve this experience and the incredible value offered at this oceanfront resort. For the record, we are constantly renovating the property and invest every penny (usually more) than we make, right back into the facility. It is a never ending process. Come again soon.

Regards,

Jason Smith

We are inn out 50's and 60's and got married April of 2011. We stayed 3 nights and loved it. We just went back for the night and it was just as good as the last time. We walked in the front door of our room and then walked out the back door and were on the beach. it is beautiful scenery and a lovely place to visit. The hotel is a little older and needs some outside fixing up, but you can't ask for a better room or better staff. We locked outselves out of the room, and had 3 different people want to help us in 5 minutues. Don't miss this wonderful place!

Room Tip: all are great!

First, the ocean view is great. Also, the grounds are very nice for children playing, people riding bikes, etc. However, my room reeked of just moldy, mildew smell. It was much more than normal beach smell. I used Lysol and room fresheners and they helped some. The best alternative was to sit on the patio and leave the door open for fresh air. The bathroom had permanent rust stains and was not cleaned up to par. The bed was comfortable, but the furniture is worn. Thank goodness we could stay outside a lot. The staff was helpful when I made a request of them.

Check in was OK with pleasant employees greeting you. We paid for a 2 night stay in the Lanai room, which came with a jacuzzi in the sitting area. The room was was not cleaned properly, cigarette butts on the balcony. The room had broken mirrors and the mirrors were not cleaned. The furniture was outdated and the pullout couch was very uncomfortable. We checked out after the first night, and no one asked how the stay was. The girl told me Expedia will send our receipt. This place is off our places to stay. We even sprayed the room with Lysol.

Room Tip: Don't pay the extra money for the room!

Dear Joe P,

We were so very disappointed to see your post here and regret that you didn't take a moment to let us know, while you were here, that we failed to meet your expectations. It sounds as though your room was not properly inspected prior to your arrival. I've alerted our Chief Engineer to immediately search for any broken mirrors in our Lanai Rooms, and thank you for bringing this to our attention. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that you found more comfortable accommodations elsewhere.
