“Fantastic Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Judith Ann Inn was the perfect getaway for my wife and I. We were both so burned out from work and just needed time together away from everything. The room was so beautifully decorated and we used the hot tub every night. With a fully furnished kitchen I was able to even cook a couple of meals for the two of us. It was very romantic and located very close to the beach. I would definitely stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: The Savannah suite on the ground floor was perfect because it was in the corner so it had the extra...

After visiting Ocean Shores many times over the years, I've always wanted to stay at the Judith Ann Inn. We booked the honeymoon suite for our 10th anniversary and it was even better than I had expected. The rooms were beautiful, clean, comfortable, and huge! We watched the sun go down while relaxing in the jacuzzi and enjoying the fireplace. What a treat! Having a large, well appointed kitchen was so convenient, though we only used it for storing snacks, fruit and making tea. The bed was so comfortable and having the hotel set back from the street, it was very quiet. We had such a relaxing time and it was just a joy to come back to these beautiful rooms after taking our little motorcycle on the beach and enjoying Ocean Shores. I don't think we can ever stay anywhere else now when we visit Ocean Shores. We've been spoiled and loved staying here. It's not often I take pictures of our hotel room(s), but I did this time! HIghly recommended for couples who want some quality time together. It's worth every penny!

Room Tip: The honeymoon suite is on the lower level of the hotel so the view is limited. I would definitely s...

Judith Ann Inn was a beautiful place to stay. My husband an i were both shocked when we walked i the door to see what a beautiful place it was. Very romantic with the fire place an hot tub and you dont want forget the beach thats in your back yard, i would definitly recommend this place for a nice get a way. We stayed in the Savannah suite which has the most windows.

My girlfriend and I stayed here on 1/29/13. We decided to get in the car and drive to Ocean Shores. We had no reservations anywhere and called this place when we got there. The staff was very friendly. She even showed us the different suites available and let us choose. We decided on the Charleston suite 105. I was very impressed how nice everything was. Cleanliness was good, with a nice kitchen and bedroom, the bathroom was great and updated and the jacuzzi tub and fireplace were very romantic! It was a perfect winter night to lock yourself in and enjoy the sounds of the ocean. Only thing I am dissapointed about was not staying more than 1 night. We will be back

My husband and I had our wedding here on 12/31/10. All of the workers that were there that day were such a great help. They set up the room and decorations for the ceremony as well as the reception and helped take everything down when we were done. The room we stayed in was perfect. Having the full kitchen was great for prepping some of the food we had for the reception and the suite was big enough to entertain friends and family before and after. Sorry it has taken so long to write a review and Thank you for making our day even more perfect!

The Judith Ann Inn was the perfect spot for my husband and I to escape for the weekend, celebrate our anniversary, and enjoy time to ourselves! We stayed in the New Orleans suite, also known as the "Bridal Suite". What a cozy, romantic, amazing place to spend a stormy weekend. The living room jetted tub was huge and such a great place to relax. With views of the stormy weather and the tv, it was where we spent much of our stay. The bedroom's huge, super-comfortable bed was another favorite about this place. While challenging to get into (SO tall!), it provided fabulous nights of sleep. With all of the basics, fluffy robes and towels, and an incredible sound system, the room was near perfect. The only things that we noted would have improved our stay would have been:
*a better shower head. For such a luxurious tub in the other room, the shower was lacking. Double shower heads would be nice, but at least one that worked better. The existing head is a disaster.
*More frying pans. We made all but one of our meals, and there was only one frying pan in the kitchen. Yikes!
*A curtain or blinds for the entry door. The unit is on the end of the building and there were only a few other rooms occupied the weekend we were there. However, the lack of privacy on the fancy glass door that could look right into the master bedroom, the hallway that accessed the bathroom, and into the living room was concerning. Every other room had window coverings for privacy, but the door did not.
*Master bedroom access to the bathroom! Goodness- this seems obvious. There is a huge closet in the bedroom that backs up to the bathroom, but to get to the bathroom one has to leave the double bedroom doors, walk up the hall (that is visible from the windows in the door), and enter the bathroom. It seems like an access door could be easily added and make great sense.
These few things we noted during our stay were the only things that could have made our weekend better! We had a fabulous time and would DEFINITELY stay again and/or recommend it to anyone else looking for a great get-away. Thank you Judith Ann Inn and Hannah for helping to set our stay up.

We stayed in Pacific Beach for 3 nights, then wanted a night of comfort and direct beach access. We got the former, but not the latter. The only thing, though, that I can fault them on is not being clear on their website that they really have no view and are not oceanfront (and maybe it was my mistake.) We got upgraded to the Bridal Suite, but I would've preferred an upgrade to an upstairs room for a bit of view - my husband loved the size of the Suite, though. (People were arriving early to the room we reserved and they didn't want to have to kick us out early.) The tub in the main room was fantastic, the bed was super comfortable, everything felt sparkling clean! Just know that you have to drive to get to the beach. (There are two trails through the brush, but we weren't there long enough to tackle it.)

Room Tip: Spend the money on a 2nd floor room!
