I was just here this past weekend, 1/24-1/25 and what a let down. Went to take a shower, came back to find a roach on my nightstand. Finally killled him, as I went to the fridge, saw another, this time a small baby sized one near fridge. Then not 1/2 hour later another one....how ridiculous! I called the front desk,... More

It was lovely being here in January, had the place pretty much to myself! I've never brought any of my dogs with me on a trip but really wanted to walk the beach with them, so booked a pet-friendly room, for $60 per dog ($120), which covers the entire stay. I wondered if the room would smell, or be inferior,... More

Ocean front king size room with refrigerator and microwave. We went in December 2014 and had the place to ourselves. It was warm enough to leave the door open so we could hear the waves while we slept. The room rate was a great value. If you want to spend much more money and stay in a tourist trap, go... More

My wife and I made reservations in late December to come look at the Ocean Isle Beach are for retirement properties. We made the reservation over the phone as we had questions about the pet policy and charges.

Beautiful view of ocean. Room is dated, but clean. Staff was pleasant. Pools and breakfast area would be crowded if fully booked, since these areas are small. A very pleasant weekend and would consider returning again. The place is ocean front and the beach was excellent.

Ocean Isle is a little over halfway between Myrtle Beach and Wilmington. Of course I traveled during the off season, so I know I got a pretty good price. But I think the hotel was great. very friendly staff. my room is clean every morning. I have no complaints about this hotel.

After selling our vacation place, we were quite not ready to leave the beach, so checked into the Islander Inn. The location is excellent, on a very nice section of the beach itself, and close to restaurants, etc. The room was clean and comfortable, if a bit dated. The TV was not so great, but who cares when the views... More
