Continental Breakfast is put out each morning around 9:00 AM till 11:30 AM. Every morning, while most people are still sleeping, The Ocean Inn staff is busy preparing their world famous muffins, so their guests can wake up to these fresh baked wonders direct from the Ocean Inn kitchen. Aside from the muffins, guests are offered a variety of fresh fruits and a choice of cereals to start their day. The coffee is brewed fresh every 30 minutes and is a perfect way to compliment the breakfast.
One of the most fulfilling moments for as an Innkeeper was housing the guests who were the 2005 Hurricane Katrina evacuees from New Orleans. Shortly after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans we posted a letter on an internet-bulletin board inviting evacuees to come stay at the Ocean Inn. We were amazed that within a week the Ocean Inn was full to capacity with Katrina evacuees. My neighbors, previous guests and friends all pulled together to donate gift cards for groceries and clothing. And then all those guests stayed and helped us when Hurricane Wilma hit South Florida later that hurricane season. Together we made a difficult hurricane season tolerable. It was truly one of my most satisfying moments as an Innkeeper.
Our biggest Compliment and tribute comes from all our guests, the majority who are repeat guests and/or referrals from previous guests. Our hospitality goal is to make every guest feel as though they are staying in the guest room of their best friend’s home. Every room is unique with its very own character and style.
