We spent two nights at the Islander Inn to attend a wedding in Ocean Isles Beach. The room was on the front side of the hotel with a view of the Intracoastal Waterway. There were no beach view rooms available when we reserved. The beach view is much nicer and the upstairs rooms on the beach side have a balcony.... More

this was our first visit to Ocean Isle Beach, but certainly will not be our last. The front desk staff at this hotel are incredibly helpful and willing to answer any questions you may have from things to do, or places to eat. The rooms are nice, but next time we will definitely book an ocean front room as we... More

Ocean Isle Beach is a beautiful place to enjoy the ocean. The Islander Inn provides very pleasant accommodations. The rooms are very comfortable, the covered beachfront balconies offer a constant connection with the beach, and the breakfast is quite nice, distinguished by sausage biscuits. The staff is very courteous and helpful. I highly recommend it. I have visited three times... More

This was our first stay here. The couple in the office were very friendly and helpful in answering questions about the area. Best of all, they helped us obtain a beach wheel chair for my husband from the town of Ocean Isle so he could easily enjoy getting to and being on the beach. The elevator at the hotel allowed...

I needed a break from work and booked a few nights here. I had never stayed at this hotel, but I will definitely be back! It was exactly what I needed. A beautiful ocean view. The sound of the surf put me to sleep at night. The rooms were clean and well supplied. The staff friendly and very helpful. Very... More

When we arrived and checked in the office smelled like rotten fish, disgusting! Now I know everyone doesn't smoke, but telling me I can't smoke on my private balcony, ridiculous. The room was "clean", I guess. The recessed lighting was coming out if the ceiling as well as the sprinkler system, no water pressure in the shower, and don't even... More

Sadly, we had to leave the Isalnder Inn today after being there for 5 nights. We should have planned to stay longer! We (2 not-so-young adults and one spoiled dog) enjoyed everything about the Islander Inn.....the view from the private balcony is magnificent; the room is clean; the breakfast was more than adequate; the location is quiet; and....well, what's not...

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
