We were looking for the best place for a 3 day getaway and we found it at Islander Inn. The desk staff were extremely friendly, maid service was excellent, and the view was outstanding. The breakfast, though limited, was all you really needed and it comes with the room. The pools were clean and the tiki bar provided a refreshing... More

This was our second stay at the Islander Inn. It is hard to beat the value at a hotel right on the beach. We had an oceanfront room (there are also sound view rooms which I believe are slightly less expensive) which all have balconies. Check in was quick and smooth. The room was clean, refrigerator was cold and room... More

I stayed here with my family. The room had a musty moldy smell. The maid hardly wanted to give me clean towels. There is one elevator next to the office. If you don't walk over 7 building to elevator You had to walk up 40 step staircase. There is no AC in hallways or the elevator. The location was nice.... More

We booked at the Islander Inn because we wanted a ocean front hotel and it was within a five minute walk to the restaurant area of town. We had a street side room because all the ocean front rooms were already booked but not really a big deal. All of the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful! Nice breakfast... More

We returned to Islander Inn after a nice experience last year, and I'm glad we did! The staff was very pleasant. Our room was clean and the view was perfect. Ocean Isle is a great little beach, with just enough restaurants and entertainment to keep things interesting for a few days. There are only a few drawbacks to the Islander,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Islander Inn with a dog. We arrived later in the day and managed to get a room without a reservation in the building reserved for pets. The room was on the road side instead of ocean side which was disappointing. I paid for two nights and spoke with the gentleman at the desk... More

Dear Guest, We are very unhappy to hear that your stay was not what you expected it to be. As far as the room type you had(sound view), the only reason you had that particular room was because this time of the year we are extremely busy and that was what we had available. It was explained to you upon... More

This hotel is just by the ocean which is great and it also has an outside AND indoor pool which is great, if the weather is unstabel. The rooms are nice and the beds are Soft! :) however the breakfast is a bit boring since there's no hot or fresh food. The internet is a bit slow, but otherbise it's... More

Friendly staff, beautiful and convenient, oceanfront setting, good sized room that could benefit from a little bit of updating, clean room and clean but really wrinkled sheets. Almost perfect except for breakfast. Everything is carbs and processed food. No fresh fruit, just fruit cups in the fridge. Yogurt, juice, sausage biscuits you microwave while they're still in the package. It... More

The Islander Inn is a very nice beachfront inn in Ocean Isle Beach, NC. I opted for a "special romantic package deal" to surprise my wife for our anniversary. Besides the lovely room overlooking the beach and dunes, it featured roses, champagne (or sparkling cider), chocolates, popcorn, 3 romance movie dvd's and a "Message in a Bottle" keepsake. The beach... More

I can't wait to go back! Very clean, with a homey feel. Nice and peaceful. Comfortable accommodations. The pools were immaculate, the setting was very attractive with easy access to the beach. Rooms has great ocean views and the accommodations were clean and comfortable. Guests were family oriented and very quiet. Loved my time here!
