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.

This was Thanksgiving get away. The hotel was clean and quiet. The location was great and view was spectacular! Don't expect plush, thick towels but you can expect a relaxing stay.

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

This inn had location, cleanliness, good parking. Breakfast could have been a little better. My real problem was not being able to receive my AAA discount.

Pretty good hotel. Beautiful ocean view. NIceTiki bar and gazebo. Good location- within walking distance of local restaurants - pier- and attractions. Continental breakfast could have been better. Rooms were clean and neat. Staff was very helpful.

First, the price for a oceanfront establishment is very good. The staff were also quite friendly and attentive. The room was very clean, as well. Now, having stayed here back in 2002, I have noticed the place starting to either show it's age or not being as well taken care of as is needed for an oceanfront hotel. - The... More

Rooms were clean. View was excellent. Staff was super nice. Some of the most comfortable beds I had ever sleep in. I wanted to keep it short, and sweet, however this site says that I have to have at least 200 characters. I now have 266 so now I can post this review.
