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

I am usually very leery of small mom and pop type motels, well let me tell you the Islander erased any fears I had. What a wonderful establishment. 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

Stayed at the Islander Motel for a weekend recently and was pleasantly surprised at how clean it was and seemingly untouched by the hurricane Sandy a few years ago... The new management is lovely and very friendly with lots of information of where to go and what was open. It was the first weekend a lot of restaurants were opening... More

Stayed at the Islander Motel in Ship Bottom again last weekend for a getaway and it was such a nice stay. The room was exceptionally clean and pleasant. I have the best sleep when I stay there because the bed is so comfortable. The weather was gorgeous and some of the restaurants just opened for the season. The owners of... More

We stayed here last summer and had a great time. The property is clean and nicely appointed. The in-room kitchenette and outdoor patio really gives a feeling of a home away from home - it was perfect for our family and short stay. The location was great, close to the beach, places to eat and a nice central point to... More
