Sits right on main street but at the end near the library and very much within walking distance of everything. Hotel staff was awesome. We had a reservation mix up when we were checking in but they fixed it on the spot and it was like it never happened. Room was a turret room in the back and while the... More

Everyone knows staying on the island is expensive. BUT it is worth it. Save money and have comfortable rides by bringing your own bikes. Oct is a great time to go because the shops have everything on sale. By your ferry tickets online to save as well. All the staff on the island are extremely friendly. This hotel has a... More

For the price we paid, they gave us a room that had a really noisy air conditioner sitting inside taking up space in the room. The guaranteed us a way different room than what we got. In the end, we were moved to a much bigger room with no air conditioner that was noisy taking up room. The hotel breakfast... More

The room was nice and had a comfortable bed. There was a portable air conditioning unit in the room, which we did not use but good thing... More

My wife and I stayed mid week from October 8th to the 10th and it was very nice. The location is in town, near the boat dock and the hotel has 3 places to eat and get drinks. If you have kids, the hotel has a very nice indoor pool and hottub. I would stay again, but I have a... More

We planned an elopement wedding here and had a marvelous experience. The staff was great and friendly and very accommodating. Andrea and John P were exceptionally wonderful. The housekeeper (Ruth) even folded our towel into a heart. Andrea assisted in the planning and was very open to answering questions and offering ideas. I do not recommend having the continental breakfast... More

We took our grandkids with us so wanted a place with a pool. This place worked out great. Ate at the in house restaurant which was a great convenience. Breakfast was okay. Certainly enough for us. Loved sitting in the rockers on the porch. Our room overlooked the alley and the flowers were spectacular. Loved hearing the horses early in... More

Great hotel on the island. It is centrally located, close to the docks, fudge shops & restaurants. While my husband was attending his meetings I wandered around the shops, which were much nicer than I remembered. After some shopping, I returned to the hotel & sat by the pool. The whirlpool was great and so was the sauna. The room... More

The Island View is really good, restaurants, staff, rooms, decor. It is very close to the ferry docks of Scheplers and Star Line. The porter from the hotel is friendly and on the ball. No errors in luggage handling for two couples and two ferry lines. Breakfast is adequate and the staff is so friendly. The desk makes everything simple... More
