I am so excited to be returning to the Ocean Isle Inn after 2 summers absence. I am usually there every summer, at least 1-2 times! The rooms are pleasant, the beach is amazing, and staff pleasant & helpful. It feels like home, without the stress... kids LOVE the pool & hot tubs... I love the sailboat rides and the beach chair service. I always feel like a queen there :)

The inn was easy to find. Check-in was smooth and easy with really friendly staff. The rooms have a great tropical feel with an amazing view ocean and access to the beach. I was looking for a place to bring the family for a vacation and I don't have to look any further we're coming back to the Ocean Isle Inn!!!

I was very happy with this hotel. The rooms were nice and the service was excellent. The continental breakfast was very good. This is a peaceful location with great views of the ocean. Also had a great meal at a local restaurant.

Very rarely do I take the time to write reviews, but in this case I felt it necessary to do so.
My family and I normally vacation in the Caribbean, but in these economic times we decided to cut back. Friends of ours recommended the Ocean Isle Inn, in Ocean Isle Beach, NC.
We didn't expect much, but we were pleasantly surprised with our overall experience.
The staff was warm, friendly and accommodating. Our rooms were neat, clean and well maintained. The pool area overlooked the beach and made it easy for us to keep an eye on our children.
Overall we were happy we chose the Ocean Isle Inn, for our vacation spot.

26 years ago my husband and I vacationed with our 3 sons in OIB, N.C. . We enjoyed our stay so much - and couldn't imagine any other beach topping this one - so we have returned there every year since. If you are looking for a hotel located on a safe, family oriented beach, Ocean Isle Inn is just the place! When we drive over the causeway and see Ocean Isle Inn, it's like coming back home! The innkeeper, Mr. Lee Shapiro, is onsite and makes himself visible to the guests to ensure that everything is pleasing and his staff quickly attends to your every need. The indoor and outdoor pools as well as the jacuzzi, are kept very clean and sanitary. The restaurants in the area offer everything from ethic foods (Greek/Italian/Oriental/Mexican) as well as home cooking, and the very BEST seafood on earth! There are wonderfully unique gift shops in the area and the Tanger Outlets are a 20 minute drive in North Myrlte Beach. You can see why we return year after year. Now our sons are grown and they bring their families to OIB and carry on a family tradition which I know will continue for generations to come.

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.
