This room is on the second floor,on the back side of the complex. You share the covered balcony with two other second floor residents but you have your own dedicated area with 2 chairs and a table. During most of our outdoor time there was no one else around. The room is probably about a third larger than a typical...

Thank you for this review. It was our pleasure to have you stay in this gem of a studio, #209 at The Ocean Inn, which we call "Breath of Fresh Air" because of the great breeze on the second floor deck. The owners of this beachy and cheerful condo play an active role in the care and upkeep of their...

This place was absolutely perfect. Very clean, walking distance to the beach, free wifi, a mini kitchen and even the pullout couch was very comfortable. We will not stay anywhere else when we visit. There are onsite laundry facilities as well. The parking can be a little tricky but it's worth it to stay at this hidden gem!

If you are looking for a quiet comfortable clean place to stay this is it . Walking distance to the ocean as well as restaurants and many more attractions. It has all the conveniences you could ask for .

This is a super cute place about two blocks from the water in Isle of Palm. I really enjoyed our stay here, which was made even better because it was pet friendly. The condo was within walking distance to numerous restaurants. It is nice and quiet, and really reasonably priced. It is also close enough to head into Charleston, but...

My husband and I stayed at the Ocean Inn for the weekend of the Charleston Marathon. It was a nice alternative to staying in Charleston, and their January rates were much more affordable than a downtown hotel. The unit we stayed in was very clean and comfortable, and the owner left a little marathon-related surprise--some bottled water, sports drink, energy...

Thanks for your comments! We try to make our guests' experience memorable - in a good way. Our small complex, The Ocean Inn, is a gem of a place - all 20 units are individually owned, operated, and decorated according to the owner's tastes and interests. We don't just have short-term rentals though, we have owners who live here year...

Clean, attractive unit close to beach. Staff was friendly and helpful. We were happy to find such a place where we could vacation with our dog. The kitchen was small but functional and had everything we needed, dishes, pots etc.

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...

“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.”
