Stayed at the Islander Inn to attend a beach wedding. The rooms are nicely appointed (i.e., comfortable bed, small table, and flat screen TV. Make no mistake- this isn't the Hilton. If you're looking for those amenities, keep heading south to Hilton Head Island. But if you're looking for an oceanfront room on a family beach that won't empty your... More

We just happened on to this place while traveling. We were very pleased with everything from the room to the caring staff. It is now our favorite place. We travel with our two small dogs and the Islander was perfect for us. Already booked our next stay! Thank you Islander Inn for a much needed break!

This wasn't the 1st time I have stayed here, but it was the most disappointing. The room really didn't appear as clean as in the past. I could feel sand on the carpet. I NEVER heard a vacuum cleaner being used and I was near the housekeeping staff on many ocassions. The hallways were never cleaned the entire time we... More

Dear Valued Guest, We are unhappy to hear that your experience not as enjoyable as you would have liked. We can assure you that our housekeepers do use vacuum cleaners in both the rooms and the hallways, as I am sure you can appreciate sand will get on the carpets as we are right on the beach, that being said...

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!
