“Want to Return to Hollywood Just to Stay Here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

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

The Ocean Inn is prime location for Hollywood Beach. The courtyard is exceptionally quiet and comfortable. There is a short walk to the beach, Broadwalk, restaurants, bike rental, Grandstand (concerts nightly) and bars. We would suggest not renting a car (traffic is horrendous!) and taking advantage of the trolley and water taxi. Those 2 transports will take you to Publix, Walgreens, Young Circle, Old Hollywood and various stops along the Broadwalk. There is also taxi service and a busline. Service (Philip and Joe) was outstanding, these guys are awesome. The rooms are in need of some tender loving care and Veronica (new owner as of March) has a plan to do some upgrading within the coming year. All in all the Ocean Inn is The place to stay in Hollywood Beach--only 11 rooms so book early.

Room Tip: The 2 upper rooms are awesome.

super service, very accommodating. We arrived early and our room was ready. We had a late flight and they allowed us to leave our car, borrow beach chairs and towels, way past check out time. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was firm and comfortable. There was a small refrigerator in the room. Our only criticism was that the shower head needed to be replaced. Even though it is on rt A1A, it was surprisingly quiet and it is a short walk to the boardwalk/beach. Traffic can be challenging on rt A1A, but we just went up to the state park to turn around and head south. The owners really care about their property and have created a lovely courtyard, with many private spots to sit.

The Ocean Inn is a great place to come and relax, at a great price, an arms length from the beach. The people who run this place are some of the nicest people on earth and will do everything they can to make your stay a pleasant one. The internet wasn't super dependable, but the breakfast every morning was very nice and the courtyard is such a great place chill out and meet other guests. Loved it!

If your interested in a quaint small hotel this is it. The service was excellent. As for the room it was dated back to 1950, the beds in the room was poor. If you laid down you would sink in the middle and your feet were higher then your head. The room had a strong deortiz smell when you entered. The area is similar to Pacific Beech California. The beech was clean, however by the waters edge there was alot of trash. The Florida keys are a far better experience.

Our room had a full kitchen and a very comfortable bed, along with a futon and TV. Bathroom was clean and the decor was bright and beachy. The courtyard is an oasis for comfort and relaxation. In the morning there was self-serve coffee (good, quality coffee, I must add) to sip while relaxing in the courtyard. Inn staff is friendly and helpful. Only one block from the beach--it is a short stroll down the side of the Inn--you don't have to cross any main streets to access the beach. I was really impressed with the beach near the Ocean Inn; it had gorgeous white sand and turquoise water. Sadly, we only spent one night here, but I will return for a longer stay and some quality beach time. Highly recommended!
