Just visited again after 2 years.....still great! Clean room and bath. New hurricane shutters. Room could use new wallpaper, but otherwise just the same cozy room as ever! Pool was lovely and clean, uncrowded after Labor Day. Staff remembered me by name! Always enjoy coming here and will return again in the future. Price is very reasonable for oceanfront. Facebook...

Loved this place. Wonderful staff! All very helpful. Nice pool. Easy to find on route 12 at MP 16. Beautiful relaxing grounds. Steps from ocean. Great value. Only one thing missing....a bar! Grills. Swings. Very very close to restaurants and shops. Would go back.

Our first family trip to the Outer Banks, we chose The Islander motel. We visited last month. We stayed on the 3rd floor. Room was very clean. Bathroom was smaller than I like, but clean. Mini fridge kept things cold. Wifi was slow at times. We originally only booked for 3 nights, but enjoyed our stay so much we stayed... More

Pros: - Service was outstanding! The owner was very helpful, helped us with our bags, gave us some pointers and was just downright super-friendly. We felt very well-taken care of. - Our 3rd floor room was clean, pretty spacious for one with 2 beds, and we had a nice view of the ocean. It's always nice to wake up to... More

After doing much research on line I picked the Islander for it's price and location - reasonably priced, on the beach and "mid-banks". The motel was home base for our trips north to Corolla and south to Cape Hatteras. We were very pleased with our room, the housekeeping and the staff. Lovely grounds, in-room coffee, micro-wave and fridge. I highly... More

We have never stayed at the Islander Motel before- to be honest we always stayed at The Tar Heel across the street. However, after not being able to get a room there we decided to check it out. We were not disappointed. The room spotless! The housekeeping staff there is amazing. The cleanest room we have ever had on the... More

We just spent a very enjoyable 5 days at The islander, and as it was our first stay there, I wanted to post a review. We own a property in South Nags Head and rent it out during the full season. We always like to do a "mid-season check" on our house to make sure nothing is broken and that... More

Chose this motel after searching and calling everyone on the outer banks. We were so pleasantly surprised. This motel is the PERFECT location. Our room overlooked the ocean. Was so wonderful to see the sunrise and sunset right from our balcony. The Islander has everything you need. Beach access right outside your room, heated pool, ice machine, wonderful staff, clean...

We were in the off season so got an unbelievable price. We were so impressed with the room size, fridge, microwave, free wifi, heated pool and beach access. This place is nothing fancy, lacks indoor hallways and electronic keys...things I'm more accustom to...but it MORE than met our needs and we completely enjoyed our stay. If we are ever back... More
