We booked an ocean front ground floor room at the islander, and we were very happy with the location. We were in town to spend time at the beach, and if this is what you are looking for, this is a great hotel. The room was actually a little nicer than I expected after reading other reviews. We had double... More

I was disappointed. Biggest problems: door to our room didn't close properly, and even after we brought it to the attention of the staff, it didn't get fixed; Wi-fi is very slow; air conditioning doesn't get past the dividing wall in the suite, so the bed area stays warm; housekeeping was hit or miss. Biggest plus: proximity to the beach;... More

It was our first visit to the Islander Inn & Suites and we were not disappointed. The pool was great, with plenty of chairs, and the beach is just steps away! Our room was very nice, with cozy furniture and a comfortable mattress. The staff was friendly and helpful. I look forward to visiting again soon.

the first room we were assigned was beyond terrible. It was room 109. the smell of mold (mildew?) was overwhelming. There was black mold (mildew?) on the ceiling, mattress cover and bathroom. The chair had something nasty on it and they need to get brand new bedspreads throughout the hotel. Gross. I did take pics, but almost feel bad posting... More

The islander hotel has nice facilities, but there is no use for those when the other people at the hotel ruin your stay. The walls are thin, so you hear everything. Balconies are shared, so there is no privacy. The pools were always so full that we had no inclination to use them. The hotel is located on the busiest... More

My husband and I looked forward for 3 months to go to the Islander, when we arrive and walk into our room it was warm but the worse part was there was a wall about 1/3 way out between sofa/tv area and bed and the AC did not make it over the wall. The sleeping area was HOT and there... More

I stayed at Islsnder, with my grandparents, over 40 years ago. Was hoping for same positive experience. Very disappointed. Way over-priced. (And I do not mind paying for a nice hotel). Adjacent to public beach access so beach was extremely over-crowded. Room was not worth the price. Looked like some renovations done but not completed. No closet- only hooks. Bathroom... More

Loved the place! Room could use a little sprucing up, but the location was perfect! Emerald oceanfront suite! Will definitely return as often as we can. Beautifully, well kept grounds. Staff was exceptionally nice.

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!!

Thank you for the great review, and the picture of the stingray! Our housekeeping ladies have worked hard in trying to master the art of towel origami! We hope to see you again at the beach. More
