The owners are so helpful and provided beach passes. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed. The location was ideal. There is a bike rack right out front. We rode our bikes everywhere we went. Just know if you're heading north there is a bike path under he bridge on the bay side and 3 blocks from the... More

The Islander Motel was very nice, clean and convenient to the beach, restaurants, etc. We had an efficiency which was stocked with any thing we needed just had to bring our food. The full size refrigerator / freezer was great. The owners were ready to help anyway they could. And the donut shop around the corner was great - fresh... More

The owners seem like great people - they offer beach badges and other items free of charge to enhance your stay. Our room was great - it looks like the place has been maintained pretty well and the amenities, especially for the price, were great. We had a good-sized refrigerator, Keurig for coffee, four person dining table, and the best... More

The room was immaculately clean the location was perfect and Joe could be one of the nicest men I have ever met. He took the time to talk with myself and my... More

I have to give this place the top rating possible. Great, friendly, helpful management who asked if we knew the area and if we were looking for nearby attractions and restaurants. Clean, modern rooms. Decent price. I rented two rooms and it was affordable enough to add an extra day. I wouldn't have been able to do that at nearby... More

I am so glad we found such a high quality accommodating place at a great price. Our room had a microwave and fridge in it, along with a keurig coffee maker and a complimentary water. Every inch of the room and bathroom was clean. I am a germaphobe, so the antibacterial hand wash in the bathroom was greatly appreciated. There... More

I can't say enough good things about our stay at The Islander Motel. The customer service was fantastic. Joe was so helpful and nice - he had great restaurant suggestions, helped us with directions, and even gave us some bandaids when we needed them. Our room was newly remodeled, clean and very nice. We had a kitchenette in the room... More
