We booked the Islander Inn on the Internet without any other knowledge of the place or the area. It turned out to be a very good choice. The area was very comfortable and not too crowded. The hotel seemed to be pretty full but the beach was not crowded. We were looking for an area that was not as touristy... More

We have stayed at the Islander Inn at least a dozen times over the years. The staff, though changing, is always pleasant, helpful and very friendly. The manager, especially, seemed attentive to our needs. My only difficulty is with the showers not having handrails or handgrips of any kind. I think the hotel should be updated to include those for... More

We blocked rooms for our wedding and all of our guests loved it here. Staff is great and very accommodating . Building 7 allows for pets to stay with you. Managers Simon and Jason are at your disposal....We have stayed here at least five times.

Spent eight nights in building seven, first floor, oceanfront and had one of the best vacations in years. The view is spectacular, a constant breeze from the ocean and the sound of the waves made every moment on the balcony great. My wife and I had our two dogs (allowed only in building 7) and we'd spend mornings and evenings... More

Three nights, two on the ocean side, one facing the inland waterway. Definitely get an ocean view room. The gentle sound of the waves at night and a porch to sit on is very relaxing. You'll also get the sun in the morning. Beach access very convenient. Breakfast fair. Rooms were clean and up to date with generous space for... More

Also stairs for the hardy. We went down and took the elevator up. Rooms are clean and bed is comfortable although a little extra soft. There... More

We've stayed at the Islander Inn a few other times, and as always, we truly enjoyed our stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are large, clean, and well taken care of.... More
