We were excited about our visit to The Islander. All the reviews we read were glowing. While the location and price were good the accomdations were disappointing. The furnishing were dated and the beds extremely uncomfortable and the pillows were flat. The room was temperature was not comfortable as the front of the room where the ac unit was could... More

Members of our family stayed on the second floor and their room was bright, clean and smelled fine. Our room on the first floor was completely the opposite. First, the smell was overwhelming. The musty, moldy odor was breathtaking. Once you were in the room, you got used to it but I'm sure that cannot be good for you. The... More

A great place for our annual girls beach getaway. Nice rooms and fair pricing. Excellent pool that overlooks the ocean. All rooms are short walk to pool or beach. Hotel close to ice cream parlors, restaurants, cinema and grocery store. Highly recommend this place for nice getaway!

Loved our recent visit during the last week of June 2014. We have never been to the area before and were not sure what to expect. We booked Room 218 - which was located on the corner and had a view from the sitting area of the pool and ocean. It was located close enough to go back/forth to the... More

I have reviewed in the past however, my past 2 stays have been horrible! Horrible experience! We arrived on Wednesday July 2. and were told we would be in room 120. I explained that I requested a second floor room and was told that someone tried to call but they had the wrong number. My information is very clearly on... More

I have to agree with ally bannaich that the only positive thing about this motel was the location and the beach, amenities were scarce, room was filthy, mold on the walls, no fan in bathroom, furniture was damp, stained and smelly. I will not recommend this motel to any one. if this is the #1 motel in emerald isle, wont... More

Pros: It is on the beach. Has a very nicely landscaped yard leading out to the beach. The pool is pretty nice. The outside is pretty. Cons: The front desk was fairly rude the two times I spoke to them. I stayed in a "suite" which is just a long rectangle with a sad little divider between the beds and... More

The only positive thing about this 'Inn' - more like a motel - was its location - on a nice bit of beach. Oh and the chairs around the pool were of good quality - which couldn't be said of the furniture in the rooms which was very old and in poor condition. The sofa was extremely frayed and the... More

We stayed at one of the less expensive rooms. The beach was right around the corner with a gorgeous view. The swimming pool overlooks the ocean with plenty of shade. the staff were very friendly and helpful. Each room was very clean and comfortable. The only problem was that they advertised a kitchenette in all the rooms which was a... More
