My family and I decided to come down to Ocean Isle for a early pre-Memorial day mini-vacation and I found the Islander Inn on the internet. I was initially pleased by the ease of which I was able to secure a reservation online. The staff at the front desk was also very accomodating in assisting me with any questions I... More

My husband and I stayed at the Inn to celebrate our four-year wedding anniversary and we could not have had a better experience. The Inn's manager was available at check-in and went out of his way to answer our questions and ask if there was anything he could do for us during our stay. Our oceanfront room was large, yet...

I highly recommend this hotel to all travellers going to the North Carolina coast. The hotel is the perfect size, the rooms were very nice. The beds were THE most comfortable beds I have ever slept on! The hotel management and staff were great. We loved it so much here...we even stayed an extra night!! I can't say enough positive...

Great room, hospitality, and continental breakfast. Only negative is the hallways outside the rooms are a little stuffy maybe b/c of poor ventilation, but once inside the room everything is perfect.

We spent a week at Ocean Isle Beach and stayed at the Islander Inn. The room was clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the staff was friendly. The location is great. The only complaint that I have is that there were issues with the hot water in our shower in building 1. We showered in two other rooms during... More

When booking our rooms we specifically asked for top floor, ocean view adjoining rooms. We booked over a month in advance. I was told the assistant manager took the booking. If these accomodations could not be met I should have been informed of that at the time of booking so I had the choice to look elsewhere for a place... More

We did not expect such a clean, up-to-date facility and were most pleasantly surprised! The room was more than adequate in size and features and though we had a 'Sound' view instead of a 'Beach' view, the fact that you're literally almost 'on the beach' makes up for it! The complimentary breakfast was better than I have received at other... More

Interesting structure for a hotel but very practical. Built up on stilts like the beach houses. Beautiful, WIDE beach. Good continental breakfast. Away from the hussle, bussle of a beach town. Great, quiet getaway.

We picked Islander Inn online based on reviews and we were very pleased. The location is easy to find and the ocean view is incredible. The room was spotless. There was convenient and thoughtful placement of HDMI, VGA and RCA inputs on the wall directly under the big LCD TV. The Inn was very quiet and the resident cats were... More

Glad you enjoyed the TVs! We are very proud of them. The hook-ups make it easy to add a DVD player, or the kids video game console. We hope to see you back in Ocean Isle very soon. Thanks for taking the time to share your thought! More
