It was a very enjoyable weekend away at the end of May with my daughters. Location, room, and amenities were perfect! Hammocks were a hit in the evening. This is our new favorite vacation destination at Emerald Isle!!

My family and I stayed at this hotel mainly because it was the only place on the island with a roll in shower to accommodate our disabled son who is in a wheelchair. We were pleasantly surprised at how spacious the rooms were and very happy with the overall accommodations and amenities. The staff was very helpful and courteous.

From the time we got there everyone was very nice. Great location, beach access and a short drive or walk to the pier. Room very clean and had no issues while there. Sufficient parking. Plenty ideas on what to do in the lobby area.

My family (4 adults, 3 kids) stayed in 2 rooms for a long weekend. None of us had stayed here before so we booked it purely because of the website and photos of the beach and crossed our fingers. Check in went smoothly and we got 2 rooms that were not joined but were only a few rooms apart on... More

My husband and I have bad backs and our first mattress was super soft and uncomfortable. Unfortunately they couldn't offer us a new room for the length of our stay (7 nights), all others were booked. They let us get a firmer mattress from another room and moved it for us to our room. Super friendly staff!! We would highly... More

We loved the view and the beach access but no hot water and the heater/ac did not work. When we asked for help with this they tried to talk us through some routine that included running the water for 60 minutes.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the area minus our hot water glitch during your stay. We apologized as we had a hot water heater go down during your stay, but do hope you give us the opportunity to make this up to you and return to The Islander as our guest. More

The Islander is a wonderful place to stay and enjoy. The staff, were very informative and took great care of us. Manager Walter, went above and beyond help. Wendy always was able to help us in the office. Wendy with housekeeping, did a excellent job. We love this place. The oceans was wonderful everyday and people were friendly.

This hotel has a lot of potential--the view is amazing from the limited number of ocean view rooms or the sitting area nearby. The beach was beautiful and clean. We were with a group so saw several different rooms--ocean view was great best on the 1st floor because the area behind the room opened up to an expanse of grass.... More
