“Great, pet friendly find! Very close to the beach!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

Had a great late fall getaway with our shih tzu. The place was just a very short walk from the beach, restaurants, shops, grocery, etc. Parked the vehicle and walked the rest of the trip. We stayed in unit 203 (our parents were in 205). Extremely clean and perfectly roomy for two people in each unit. The units are definitely not "posh", but they are just fine for a beach getaway. The kitchenettes were great and adequately stocked. Bed could have been more comfortable, but for the price, can't complain. There's a good restaurant just across the way -- the Acme Lowcountry Cantina. Their house salad dressing is delicious, and everything we had was pretty good (shrimp succotash, seafood burrito, acme burger, flounder picadilly, cantina salad)!! We tried Coconut Joe's, as well (wouldn't recommend -- pricey for the quality of food). Anyway -- Ocean Inn was great, we'll be back!

We have been staying here for 15 years and we keep coming back. It is close to Acme Cantina where we like to eat and drink and very close to the ocean.Thelma and Zeebelt, the managers, are great people and will do all they can to make sure your stay is all you want it to be. They also allow dogs, which is great. Do yourself a favor and stay here. You will not regret it.

Room Tip: 1st floor facing the ocean....great front porch for drinks at 5.

We very much enjoyed our visit last week to the Ocean Inn. We were able to bring our dog and everything went really well. It was extremely clean and the staff was very helpful. As other reviews state, this is not a new or fancy place. However, the pool was one of the best I have ever enjoyed. You have everything you need and you are one block from the beach. Since it is doggie friendly, you tend to meet other dog owners and their pets. We will definitley return and share this spot with our friends!

Room Tip: Second floor worked well with our dog.

Certainly not the average condo or hotel room, but very clean and the price...even peak season is not bad moreso because we are able to bring Fido along. One of the few pet friendly Inns close to the beach. We have them down as one of our favorites when vacationing at the IOP.

Clean and well maintained. Reasonably priced. Pool area and pool very well maintained. Kitchen was clean and not shabby with old appliances, etc. We enjoyed our stay. Sofa bed was not comfortable but they told us that up front. Beds and bedrooms small but adequate. We are spoiled is all. Tv was a little hard to watch. It was far away from the sofa's. Pictures on website looked exactly like what we had. No surprises. I can't emphasize clean enough. Bedding included. Whoever cleans and maintains does a great job and should be commended. I would not hesitate to stay again.

We have stayed at Ocean Inn Previously and really enjoyed it for the price. That was 5 years ago. This year we needed a pet friendly place for 2 nights after staying in one of the Ocean Front Condo's at 1140 Ocean Blvd. Our 2 nights stay was 460.00. I do not call that reasonable and as for the condo itself it was moderately furnished and was clean. But I feel 230.00 a night is not reasonable for the type of unit it was.

The rooms are clean but a bit outdated. The staff is very nice and helpful. The walk to the beach was short and easy. The pool was always clean. And the rooms are cheap.
