We booked the Islander Inn on short notice and had a wonderful time. Had an ocean view room with a balcony. It had a frig and microwave, we always carry popcorn on all our trips. The staff were very caring and the hotel was very clean. It had an outdoor pool, which they were getting ready for the summer season... More

The rates were reasonable, the room was clean, and the staff was very friendly. Our oceanfront room was a beautiful view and the beach had easy access. The hotel was within an easy walk to the "circle" so we could walk to local restaurants and coffee/ice cream shop. The only drawback is that the walls were very thin. In April,... More

My husband and I found this place online after hearing about great seafood in calabash. This place is amazing! On our way back from Florida, one night, we'll definitely come back for more. Beautiful beach, great service.

I don't know how Ocean Isle is in the summer, but in March, it's like you've been given your very own place in the sun. Yes, it was a little chilly, but the sheer beauty of the place prompted us to ask to stay an extra day at The Islander Inn. That was no problem. There was no fighting over... More

Just stayed for two nights and was very impressed. It was quiet, clean, and couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay on Ocean Isle. The pools and spa were nice and just a few steps from the beach. Was family friendly and still very quiet. Will definitely be back soon!

We stayed at the Islander Inn in the summer of 2011. It had some of the nicest most helpful staff you could ask for. The rooms were nice, roomy, and very clean.

We were in OIB for the Food bank's half marathon. Great location! From the Islander, you can walk or ride a bike anyplace you want to go on the island. Definitely get an oceanfront room! The balcony is a must! Our room and bathroom were very clean, but the bathroom in particular needed some updating. The paint was peeling, and... More

Being a huge fan of Ocean Isle Beach (I'm from there!) but not having an easy place to stay when I return, the Islander Inn is a wonderful spot to grab a room on the oceanfront that has everything you need for a short or extended stay. The beds were comfortable and while the bathroom was a little barren, it... More

I have to admit that after looking at some of the reviews on TripAdvisor, I was a bit skeptical about this place. My family and I stayed in building 7 and it was wonderful. Building 7 is the pet friendly building and you couldn't even tell other pets had been there. Everything was clean and smelled fresh, I was surprised.... More
