We took advantage of the sweetheart package. We loved the chocolates and the champagne! We enjoyed both on the balcony as we listened to the ocean our first night. The entire place has been updated and was still pretty fresh (you could still smell new paint). The location was awesome and all of the rooms face the ocean. We had... More

My husband was gearing up to start a stressful project at work and decided he needed a couple of days off first. After looking at all of our options we chose to go to the Islander Inn at Ocean Isle Beach. We arrived about lunch time, expecting that we would just go sit on the beach until our room was... More

My fiancee went down to the NC coast to get married. We were married on Sunset Beach but stayed here in Ocean Isle. We were both very pleased with the room and the beach. We will definately come back and stay here again.

This was the first year we have stayed at Ocean Isle, and the first year we have stayed at the Islander Inn. The staff was very helpful, answered all our questions, and seem concerned with our comfort. Plus, I must say that the carpet in the room was the first I could walk on barefoot without my feet getting nasty.... More

We had a blast here when my husband and I went in September of 2009. The rates were awesome (i got around $105 a night for ocean front w/ balcony!) and the room was clean and neat. The indoor pool was kind of cold, but i think summer was just winding down so they probably hadn't turned on the heater... More

A great value. Simple. Right on the beach. We had an Oceanside room on the first floor. All the rooms on the ocean side directly face the beach, with great views from the balcony. Even the first floor rooms are elevated to allow a view over the dunes. The balcony is wide enough for a two adults to sit comfortably... More

Quiet beaches, pristine flat smooth sand, warm water and you can walk out into the Atlantic 100 feet and still have your head above water. Location is gorgeous. View from Oceanfront rooms is amazing. You can see the ocean from your bed! We actually watched dolphins swim by on 3 of the days we were there! Bring your binoculars!!! Rooms... More

We were treated very badly last year (June 08) by the OLD management and staff. Justin Harkey (NEW management since Oct 09) has cleaned house completely, both staff wise and room wise, and this is now THE place to stay on O'Isle Beach. From the friendly, accomodating and efficient front desk staff (Carrie & Laura) to the breakfast room staff... More

From start to finish the Islander over delivered. The rooms were immaculate and very comfortable. The views were what I needed to unwind and recharge my batteries. Very relaxing.
