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.

Great location on the beach provides excellent views especially from the 2nd floor. Check-in staff was very cordial and helpful with directions to local establishments. Now, about the hotel. As soon as we got to the 2nd floor hallway we noticed a ridiculously strong FeBreeze/Lysol smell. The smell was also in our room, but was mixed with a wet dog... More

When first arriving at the Islander Inn, we were checked in fast, and with very friendly, helpful personnel! The room smelled clean, was so cool, and what a view from the bedroom window!!

Like other people stated, if you are disabled or handicapped, this is not the hotel for you. Luckily for us currently, we do not have this issue for us. The room was pretty good.
