This hotel is not on the ocean and the condo is on the small side, but exceptionally clean and a block from the beach make it a great value if you are coming to Isle of Palm! Nice kitchen has all the appliances needed to get your cook on for a week or go across the street to Acme Lowcountry...

If you are looking for something close to the beach but on a budget this is it. Staff was very helpful and you can see the ocean from the second floor. Furnishings were older and mattress was a little hard but everything was clean.

My husband and I just got back from a last minute weekend trip to Isle of Palms. We'd never been to SC before and honestly we only stayed here because the ocean front hotels were booked. We were originally skeptical but found that this little place was perfect and came at a very reasonable rate. Our room #209 was spacious...

We were coming to Charleston for the CABA baseball tournament. This was a perfect location. We were close to the ball parks and a block from the beach. The Ocean Inn is in walking distance to several real good restaurants and shops. Rooms are clean and spacious enough for a family to enjoy comfortably. the staff was very polite and...

Great place to stay while at the Isle of Palms! Older style apartment rooms but very comfortable! Everything is within walking distance of Ocean Inn including the beach, The Windjammer, Sea Biscuit, Acme Cantina, etc. Not 5 star, but great price for what you get and awesome location!

I can't say enough good things about this place. Small set of condos (which I love) only one block from the beach. We had a huge bed, kitchenette with everything we needed to cook and prep for the beach and a pull out couch in the living room. The staff was super friendly and helpful anytime we called with questions....

We stayed over New Year's Eve. The location is great, a very quiet charming beach town with plenty of places to eat and it's only a quick drive from downtown Charleston. The owners were very nice, helpful, and accommodating. There are mixed reviews on here about the cleanliness of the rooms, but we found ours to be very clean and...

Rented studio apartment. Very nice. Had everything we needed including small kitchen. Close walk to beach, shops and restaurants. Pet friendly too which is hard to find. We're able to keep our boat in parking lot right next door. Price was good for so close to everything including Harris teater

Who writes reviews like "area is so old and stinky no one wants to be there" Good grief what does that even mean? It's about a block away from the ocean which you should easily be able to figure out if you can use google. It was the cheapest place around and that's what we were looking for. It's located...

“If quiet is what you are looking for, rooms on the back are quieter, but if you enjoy just sitting on the deck and watching the night life & listening to the bands up the street, then I recommend the top floors over the office.”
