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

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
