If the hotel had different Sheets on the bed it may have gotten a 5. I was very pleased with the over cleanliness of the hotel, and the staff were nice and accommodating. The fact that it was pet friendly made it that much better.

The hotel was perfect for us. My children loved the pools, the beach, and the big TV in the room. The frig and microwave were great assets since the kids could have a snack before bed without having to go back out. The parking lot was a short walk to the beach and basically below our room so I didn't... More

I needed a getaway, after a recent death in the family. I have stayed here in the past and thought it was just what I needed. The check-in was quick and smooth. Our accomodations were excellent as well. We ate at The Isles Restaurant and it was sooo good! Beautiful view over the ocean. I will be going back again... More

This was the third time in less than nine months that we have stayed at the Islander. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the flat screens are a big hit with the kids and the view can't be beat. We enjoy the quiet peaceful beach and it is just a short drive to Myrtle Beach for shopping. One... More

This is the second time we have stayed here and had a great trip again. The flat screen TVs are a new addition since my last trip and they were great! I would recommend new shower heads. The breakfast room is great but there was no yogurt (I remember there being yogurt last time). Staff was great, location is great,... More

Although everything was closed in Ocean Isle Beach this time of year, the motel was a real value. This was a Valentines Weekend getaway. When we arrived, there was champagne, chocolates, flowers and real champagne flutes in the room. The balcony faces the ocean. Everything was as advertised. Had a great weekend!!!
