3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The hotel is conveniently located right on the beach. Enjoyed use of the outdoor and indoor pool as well as the hot tub. The breakfast was suitable and attended to by friendly staff. The towels are very thin and cheap. Overall we enjoyed our stay. There was a size able discount for staying 7 nights (20%)

My family stayed at the Islander Inn over labor day weekend. The location is certainly excellent, and on a nice beach. That's where the positive comments end. The staff, particularly at the front desk, was extremely rude and unfriendly. When I made a simple request to get towels after returning from the beach (because my room had not yet been... More

The Islander Hotel is a great location on the beautiful beach in Ocean Isle, NC....but that's about it. The two women working at the hotel office front desk were rude, unfriendly and had no concept of customer service...very poor representation of this hotel. The website and advertising of this hotel is misleading! Our room carpet was dirty and dated, small... More

Right on the beach. We had a pet and were in last building from the office. No elevator at this end so it was a long way to walk. Didn't go to breakfast in the mornings because it was so many stairs and a hike to get there. Also only one entry to beach which is at the main office... More

We just returned from a short trip to OIB and we stayed at the Islander Inn for the first time. The hotel was clean, staff was professional and our room, overlooking the beach was nice. There was a neat little tiki bar to purchase beverages by the pool and of course, the beach, which you cannot beat. Ocean Isle is... More

Booked an end of summer trip there at last minute. Room was average but location was excellent. Room had all the needed amenities but could use some updating. It was clean and everything you would normally have was provided. In room fridge and microwave was a plus. The included breakfast was a bonus. The pool was nice and the location... More

My wife wanted a short, 2 1/2 day getaway for us for my birthday. We've been visiting Ocean Isle Beach in North Carolina recently and she booked early at The Islander Inn and got a great rate. The room was on the second floor, ocean front as we wanted. Check in was the smoothest I've experienced since…maybe ever. They were... More

Very easy check-in, spotless room, and wonderful staff. We had a second floor room facing the ocean and couldn't have been happier. Our tv remote did not work and the front desk had it fixed in minutes. A real gem, especially for a hotel right on the beach! We plan to return.

Not the Ritz, but very comfortable and clean. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and the young lady taking care of dining guests was wonderful. This will become my regular vacation spot when a need a few days at the beach.
