“A rare find”
Reviewed March 30, 2009

Clean and comfortable. Great view of ocean from balcony. Office staff was helpful. Continental breakfast was good. Small in-room refrigerator. A real bargain for $100+ per night the end of March. Clean beach and good for shell hunting.

We took a spur of the moment trip and ended up in Ocean Isle Beach. We considered three of the hotels there and selected the Ocean Isle Inn. We opted for an oceanfront, king room, which was only $80/night. The room was clean and had a nice balcony with a comfy bed. The staff was friendly and efficient - we looked at the room before deciding to stay and it wasn't fancy, but what do you expect for the price? There is a refrigerator, coffeemaker and microwave and a free continental breakfast, which is convenient. It's also within walking distance to some bars/restaurants, which we also liked. There is no longer any smoking in the rooms, only designated areas, so that alleviates some of the previous negative comments. The only negatives were the smell of the cleaning fluids (but that dissipated) and the lack of soundproofing. We were on the second floor and the people beneath us starting talking and laughing at 5 a.m. and didn't let up for hours. Thank goodness, it was just for the one night. If you're looking for a funky place to eat/drink, take a drive to Little River outside Calabash.
