Half Off Depot is running two deals for Ocean Isle Inn right now, and by using a special promo code you can make the deals even better. If you enjoy the beach in the cooler months, these are great deals. This could be a very inexpensive Spring Break trip to Ocean Isle Beach, which is absolutely beautiful. It’s a perfect destination if you want something more peaceful than Myrtle Beach. Ocean Isle Inn is an oceanfront hotel with a heated, indoor pool, which will be appreciated during this time frame.

$89 for 2 Nights at Ocean Isle Inn in Ocean Isle Beach, NC before March 1st, 2012

$99 for 2 Nights at Ocean Isle Inn in Ocean Isle Beach, NC March & April

On top of these deals, use the promo code 15off50 and get an additional 15% off the deals. That brings the price for 2 nights before March down to $75.65, and the price for 2 nights in March or April to $84.15. This promo code is good on any Half Off Depot purchase of $50 or more through Sunday, December 11th. You can purchase up to three vouchers for six nights, but make sure to check black-out days. The restrictions for the $99 deal say it’s not valid for weekends, but that some weekends will be available, so it’s worth a phone call.

Also, there is no limit on how many vouchers you can buy, so if one room at Ocean Isle Inn isn’t big enough for your family, you can buy two and it’s still a great deal.

Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools’ spring break is from Friday, March 30th, 2012, through Friday, April 6th. These days are NOT on the black-out list for the $99/2 night deal. So even if you can’t use this deal on the weekend (which you might be able to), you could get four nights during your kids’ spring break for just $168.30. Wow!

Make sure to purchase the vouchers this weekend so that you can use the promo code.
