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. We always visit in July during... More

I have been coming here for several years,(a 1000 mile drive one way from Memphis Tn mind you,) because I was tired of bumper to bumper traffic in North and South Myrtle Beach along with overpriced hotels that really were terrible and crowded restaurants! I have stayed at 2 and 3 hundred dollar namebrand hotels.Some were good,most were a ripoff.... More

Although the room was dated it was very clean. It was fantastic to be directly on the beach and the facility and the beach where extremely private. The pools were never over crowded at any time. Location was impeccable. The breakfast could have had more to offer. Overall, great place to go on Vacation.

This hotel is right on the beach, and we had an ocean-front room. The small balcony was nice with 2 chairs and 2 small tables. However, this is an older property and shows it. The shower had no water pressure and the sheets are paper-thin. There were several weddings on the beach just in front of the hotel, so apparently... More

Before my sister and I arrived I asked that housekeeping remove the bed spreads as we would not be using them. When we arrived, after waking up at 4am and flying all day, our room did not have the bed spreads as requested. The bed also had no sheets, no blankets, nothing but a mattress cover.
