“Lovely Little Find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

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.

The hotel was older and more worn yhan it looked online There was mold in the tub and dirt all along floorboard in bathroom We were told there was construction but it was really bad The noise was load and the street was all torn up The view of the work going on was disgusting Parking is a nightmare not enough spaces for units We couldn't leave or we would lose our space It is a long walk to restaurants and I didn't feel safe We asked for a refund they said no so we were forced to stay there Staff was not the least concerned Don't stay here I didn't sleep well There were people arguing right ouyside our door Staff left early

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!

I happened to stumble across the Ocean Inn and found it to a great little place for a short getaway. Philip is one of the most accommodating managers of a small hotel I have met in years. The location of the Ocean Inn made my two-day getaway worthwhile - it is a two-minute walk to the boardwalk and the beach - both great for long walks and sightseeing.

There is no noise from the A1A highway and as for the construction going on next door, the noise is minimal (even outside) as the current construction work is several stories above the hotel.

Another great factor are the nightly rates - well below other area hotels with comparable beach access.

I plan on returning the next time I can get away for a few days!

We booked this solely on reviews from TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. Stayed here two nites and loved the location with proximity to the beach and the atmosphere of the courtyard. It is very close to the boardwalk (without boardwalk accommodation prices) , very clean and fantastic owners. We didn't stay in the room much as we were out on the beach or taking short trips in the area. A perfect spot to stay put and enjoy the beach but also 30 minute drive to Miami/South Beach, Sawgrass Mill shopping (fantastic shopping), Casinos and Ft. Lauderdale. Would definitely recommend it and would book again, the next time in Hollywood.
