Family booked a King ocean view for the couple , received 2 doubles. Then another couple opened the door that evening with a key given to them by the front desk and told the couple they were in their room . No, they weren't , but goodness, the evening had certainly been interrupted in a most unpleasant manner. There is... More

This was my first trip to Ocean Isle, and I will be staying at the Islander Inn on all my future trips. The room is simple - looks like any room you'd see in a decent hotel. It was clean, and it does look like the pictures on their website. The ocean side rooms all have fantastic views - no... More

We booked the islander online and were really excited to be right on the beach. But, after planning our whole trip and driving 4 hrs to get there, we arrived only to be told that they didn't have a room reserved for us. We were told there was some sort of glitch online, and we were not the only ones... More

Kudos to the desk staff, the impeccable cleanliness of the maid service, and to Diago for always being courteous and helpful . This is the place to stay at OIB . The breakfast is very good and the room is clean. The pool is pleasant and the beach is gorgeous. Nothing negative to say about the Islander Inn. Just wish... More

If I stay in the future ill probably get a room faceting the sound because the hotel is so close to the beach. The staff was friendly. Very nice place!

We really enjoyed this property, it was very well kept with great views (oceanfront) and close to everything. We attended a wedding at a nearby venue and enjoyed our stay at this hotel and the area was lovely as well. Good value, beautiful beaches.

We really enjoyed this place. Spacious rooms, good continental breakfast, right on the beach. We were in a non-ocean view room, but still had a good view of the grassy inlet area behind us. We would stay here again. A much better option than Myrtle Beach, it was so quiet and relaxing.

We love Ocean Isle Beach and the Islander Inn - we have visited several times and I'm sure we will be back! The Inn is a better value than a beach house for a couple or small family looking for an ocean front stay. Rooms are clean and comfortable, staff is helpful and friendly.
