Spur of the moment trip up the coast for my birthday w/e. I had not been to Vero Beach since 1984. We tried to get a room at the Driftwood but all booked and the person we spoke to recommend the Islander which was right across the street. I looked at the pictures and reviews here on trip advisor but... More

My family has stayed here several times while visiting my parents and love the tropical decor in the room. I saw a review that was titled run away, and to take the good reviews with a grain of salt. This is not an upscale, pricey inn. I think that's what that traveler was expecting and because it wasn't they chose... More

We just returned from a family wedding in Vero Beach, Fl...we stayed at the Islander Inn at the suggestion of a family member who has stayed there before...our family literally took over this small hotel and we had a wonderful time...the rooms were spotless and conveniently located around a small grassy area with tables and chairs for us to gather...

We just returned from a 3 day stay at this charming family owned boutique type Florida hotel. We had a family wedding with everyone arriving from various states and it was very affordable, clean and roomy. We had almost filled the entire hotel ( I think 26 rooms total) . Mary Jane and Doug are very nice and so accommodating.... More

I would for sure stay at The Islander again! Location, location, location. Literally across the street from the beach. Highly clean rooms and accommodating staff (check out is 11am but we were allowed 2pm). My husband and I stayed here for a wedding with extended family that was held at the Vero Beach Hotel. The Islander is incredibly more affordable.... More

We had the misfortune of booking this room on the advice of a friend we came to town to visit who chose it for its location without setting foot inside. Disgusting. The room stunk so badly of dry rot that a week later, my clothes still held the smell. The office was so thick with the staff's cigarettes' smoke that... More

Excellent room, great staff, upgraded room at no extra cost. We had a wonderful time and will be going back. Just across the road from the beach. Also had a wonderful sitting area outside the rooms. Free coffee and tea in the mornings.

Our extended family stayed here recently, occupying 7 rooms for a long weekend. Perfect!!! We were able to "hangout" in the small courtyard in the middle of the motel, which was very relaxing. The rooms were spacious, though a bit outdated in decor. But they were very clean. The managers were very friendly and helpful. And the location is perfect...across... More

I will never stay there. It is not worthy stay. Especially a landlord is poor and he threw away garbage around the hotel. I think he never have enough intelligence to be human beings. I wish she were not stupid.
