Stocked with basic pans, plates, etc. A TV in the main. Room with a queen bed & fouton plus one in the bedroom eith a king bed. Even... More

After leaving a different hotel that excepted dogs and evidently 2" cockroaches. We ran across the Island Hotel. It was super clean and the staff exceptionally friendly. They have a great continental type breakfast with waffles the shape of the state of Texas. It was raining so we didn't get to use the heated pool. However our little Charlie loved... More

This was not the fanciest place that we have ever stayed by any stretch of the imagination, but the staff was friendly and it was right next to the beach! The location is totally worth staying here. We spend all of our time at the beach so it's not a bad place to shower and sleep.

The Island Hotel has done everything right, and for the price I doubt one could do better. I stayed using a LivingSocial discount so my cost was $40 a night plus tax. But even at a higher rate this hotel would still rate 5 stars from me. The beds were a tad firm but that is a matter of taste--I... More

This place was fantastic. I would stay here again and again and again. Continental breakfast with oatmeal and waffle machines. All the pastries and coffee you want. Ping pong and pool tables. The pool was heated to 89 degrees... we didn't bring our suits but will next time. Ice machine, vending machines. They are pet friendly (we had three dogs)... More

I will definitely be staying here again. Keeping it short and sweet. For a reasonable price, you get GREAT, personable service, a comfy/clean place to lay your head, and a nice, continental breakfast which includes Texas shaped waffles! All just mere minutes from the beach! Great place to stay for a quick, much needed, weekend beach getaway.

Rooms are clean and light. We appreciated the mini fridge, as well as not having sandy and humid carpeting in a beach town motel room. Good shower pressure. The room decor is somewhat spartan and could benefit from a framed pleasant coastal scene. The wall insulation between rooms is adequate if everyone is quiet. VERY early in the am we... More
