Historical Traveller Reviews of The Winds Oceanfront Inn & Suites Hotel

Some good, some bad...

from Cari
We just came back from a one night stay on OIB. It had a beautiful wide sandy beach. We stayed at The Winds which had an old-fashioned feel to it, yet modern conveniences. Very nice. There were countless little coves with tables and tropical plants. The only problem we had was that the air conditioner in the back bedroom did not cool all the way to the front living area. Also, you were not allowed to "carry-out" from the breakfast buffet and I did not want to sit in the crowded dining area when there were such lovely spots outside. I also could not fix a plate to take up to the room for my husband who wanted to sleep late.

A Nice Stay for a family

from A TripAdvisor Member
Having been to Myrtle Beach, Virginia Beach and Ocean City, my husband and I wanted something a little less developed and more family friendly, my parents have never been to the beach or seen the Atlantic Ocean so we ended up with 11 people altogether for a 4 day vacation surrounding Labor Day. We stayed ocean-front in 413-414, it needs updated, the king suite was really nice but the other side 413 was was out of date but not a really big problem for the price, this wasn't The Westin. The breakfast was great, and staff was really friendly. My biggest complain was the chlorine in the pool was way too strong, and there were roaches, but none in our rooms we only saw them outside. Overall our whole party said they would return it was a good time for the price. This island though is very undeveloped you have to go over bridge for milk even so don't go here if you want alot to do.

Can not wait to come back

from A TripAdvisor Member
My family of 19 just returned from the Winds and I want to say we had the best time. We can not wait to come back again next year. Myra was always happy and helpul as were the bartenders at the Tiki Bar and Garden Bar. Eloise did a great job of working around our little ones napping schedule and somehow managed to sneak in while we were out and about and got everything in tip top shape. Brian also impressed us by helping out whenever we asked. We were thoroughly impressed from start to finish. Keep up the great work.
There are a few suggestions that we have for the future.

laid-back and friendly

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at The Winds Oct.2003 - was great. Talk about private beach-our sandcastle lasted the whole week! Mini-suite 101, very private & comfy. Hot buffet breakfasts were nice. Everyone was very laid-back and friendly. We'll be back.

We had a great time!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We had a great time! It is a very beautiful place. We can not wait to come back. We wish we were still there. Everyone was so nice. Excellent accommodations. Breakfast was great. Easy access to the beach. I hope we can come back next year. If you have not been to the winds, it is a must see. Thanks, Noel, Nonnie, Ashton, Aubree and Autumn Myers

re going back again

from A TripAdvisor Member
We just got back from a Mother's Day retreat and I will have to say honestly that everytime we go to The Winds it just gets better and better...I never dreamed it could improve anymore but I will have to say this last trip I was so impressed with all of the staff and the kindness from everyone! The cook overheard my daughter wanting to picnic on the beach and can you believe that when I picked up our dinner they had a full picnic basket loaded with a beach blanket and the works - It was a PERFECT evening for a bit of Mother Daughter time on the beach! Please see the virtual tour and I promise I will keep adding more pictures and details seeing that I am going back in two more weeks for MORE relaxation!

t stay at the winds resort

from A TripAdvisor Member
We have stayed at the winds 3 years in a row and loved it. But the last time we stayed, we were in a room that did not have suffucient air conditioning and was very hot. We were met with lazy, unresponsive hotel managment until 2 days later when we were able to speak to the real manager. We received the minimum 10% discount. The room was very uncomfortable and no where else for us to go. Since then, we rent houses on the beach with about 4x the room at a lower price than we paid at the winds. I will never stay at the winds again.

A Beautiful place

from A TripAdvisor Member
We spent 8 nights at the Winds and enjoyed every minute! The accomodation is very clean and comfortable and the views of the beach are fabulous.The staff are extremely welcoming and made our stay all the more enjoyable.The resort is a peaceful and unspoilt location to relax and enjoy. Sitting on our deck in the evening with a nice glass of wine was one of our favourite times.We would have no hesitation in recommending The Winds to anyone who wants a relaxing beach holiday.

roaches

from A TripAdvisor Member
Oyr family will never stay here again. I think if the management handled the situation a little graciuously instead of being so defensive, we might have a different opinion. On our fourth night we came back to our room late at night and found roaches in the room. We quickly caught and killed them and went to bed very upset. A short time later, we found more roaches crawling around the bathroom and hallway. At this point, my family was very upset and could not sleep the rest of the night. We then decided to leave this hotel knowing we would not be able to relax and sleep in this place based on what had occurred.In the morning , I informed the front desk attendant that we were leaving due to the roach problem in our room. I was first informed that I would have to pay for the two additional nights I had booked and I told them I thought it was not fair due to the condition of the room. I knew I had agreed to their cancellation policy but I felt the hotel did not fulfill the agreement by providing a livable room. They also asked me if I was sure it was roaches and I replied there were dead ones we had killed in our garbage that they could examine. The front desk attendant said they would have to send someone to the room to confirm the insects were roaches and also offered that the exterminator comes weekly to the hotel, essentially telling me they knew they have a roach problem.I was also offered 10% off the last nights charges to compensate us for our lack of sleep in our room and another room to stay in. I informed them we were leaving regardless as our vacation stay was essentially ruined at this hotel. I thought that once they saw the roaches, they would not charge us for the two remaining nights.Two hours later, we finished packing our car and no one had come to our room to examine the roaches. I put four dead roaches in a plastic bag and brought them to the front desk to settle our final bill. I was told the full charge had already been charge to my credit card without a chance for me to review it. I put the bag of dead roaches of the counter and left.

I loved The Winds. Everything about it was perfect

from A TripAdvisor Member
I just got back from Ocean Isle , NC. I had a wonderful stay at The Winds . I was with a party of about 50 people. We rented two houses . It was great. The kids could go to the pool , hot tub or beach . The guys could play shufleboard while the women could stay in the house and chat . The food was wonderful and catered everynight for us so we did not have to cook. Everyone had their own room with two beds. The rooms were very clean and well maintained everyday. I highly reccomend that you stay here if you are interested in taking a trip to Ocean Isle, NC . I look forward to going back to The Winds.
