Best staff on earth. Hotel neat and clean. Wonderful breakfast every morning

My boyfriend and I decided to stay here for something low key to ring in the new year. We were not disappointed. It's a very nice location, a beautiful and clean beach, and the rooms were clean but could use a little updating. We would stay here again, for sure.

Hotel was in the perfect location and the staff were great! Had no problems here...would recommend!

The hotel was very nice. The room was cozy. Love the location.

Location of Ocean isle inn is perfect and ample parking. Staff is just wonderful and had a great time there. Free breakfast is served from 7 to 11 am and there is outdoor pool along with an indoor pool and hot tub. Would recommend getting an ocean front room, beautiful view.

This was our 2nd stay at the Inn. It has everything you need for a weekend beach getaway . Nice pool, great ocean view and balcony. Short walk to pier, Putt putt , dining and some little shops.

The staff was very pleasant and the view was nice, other than that, I wouldn't waste the money. We arrived to a very unsanitary bathroom; feminine hygiene trash from the previous occupants on the floor, used towels, hair in the tub (from shaving). Sand and/or dirt on the floor throughout the room. Continental Breakfast was great, probably where all the money goes because it definitely doesn't go to maid service. Overall it was a great deal of money just to see the beach.

This hotel is close to the bridge from the Mainland. The beach is extremely clean and beautiful to walk on. Lots of shells and Pelicans.

The facility was clean and noise level low. VERY good air conditioning. The room had a microwave and fridge which is very convenient. The beds were very comfortable. The floor was tile which is excellent for a beach front hotel. Plenty of secure parking. Two pools--1 indoor and 1 outdoor. USAToday was available in a vending machine. I like have that paper while traveling. Overall a nice experience with a very friendly staff. I would welcome another visit there.

We enjoyed waking to the sound and scene of the ocean and beach greeting the new day. Walking a small distance to the beach and enjoying the sand, sun and water were our favorite days. At night walking along the beach and then sitting on our balcony and listening to the waves and watching the moonlight dance on the water were priceless. A wonderful way to spend a week.

Great location on a nice beach. Room was adequate fot he price. Bed was too soft. Found a few unwanted bugs in the bathroom. Nice indoor pool and spa.

Reunion with sister. Staff was wonderful...helpful with recommendations. Requests fulfilled immediately. Good coffee! Steps from the ocean. Very clean breakfast and pool areas. Need to re-locate waffle maker in breakfast room so it doesn't set fire alarm off! Good location with restaurants and ice cream nearby. Will go back!

Hotel was nice. Hot tub was great. did not appreciate the alarm that went off at 1 am the first night and 7 am the second.

Ok place, great location

The Inn was nice. It was probably worth the extra money for the ocean view because they had the benefit of a balcony while the sound view didn't. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was adequate. The air conditioner kicked on and off throughout the night and was rather noisy

Very restfull and enjoyable.Nice and comfortable and great beds

WHAT WE DID - lots of beach time, wave bobbing, body surfing - lots of pool time (they have indoor and outdoor) - mini-golf - walked into the little town to shop at beach shops - homemade ice cream each night - out to dinner at Twin Lakes...highly recommended for seafood =, but just "ok" - GREAT dinner at Tomo (Japanese steakhouse) - dinner at a Chili's one night (in Shallotte...20 mins away) THE FACILITY Fabulous front desk staff. Tremendous location. Nice quality and value in a family-oowned hotel RIGHT on the beach. Friendly staff in general. Well-maintained hotel. THE LOCATION Very centrally located. Easy walk to town (5 mins) for mini-golf or homemade ice cream. Nice wide beach and not too crowded, but the whole beach has a band of broken shells that you have to cross over to get to the water. Ouch! THE AMENITIES Bare bones amenities, but you don't spend much time in the room, so that's fine. Continental breakfast wasn't much, and they were out of most things very early in the morning. Housekeeping was ok, but not great. Rooms are small with little storage, so I imagine it was hard to do a really bang-up cleaning job. It was not un-clean, just always cluttered. OVERALL We'd come to this hotel again. Especially now that we're informed...we'll know what to pack next time to make up for the things that the hotel doesn't necessarily do well. The friendliness of the taff and overall value make it worth the while!

Convenient small counter and bar sink next to mini fridge made sandwich making a breeze. An ocean front room with balcony is definitely worth the extra money. If you like the quiet being on the beach experience, then this is the place for you.

The hotel was right on the beach and the beach was not crowded. The outdoor pool area was nice. The biggest problem was there were no comfortable chairs in the rooms if you wanted to sit and watch the small TV. The mattress was very soft which was ok for sleeping but not sitting up watching TV. The only other problem was the noisy air conditioner unit. That said, we would go back there.
