Lovely location & the view cannot be surpassed. Needs major updating though. Decor is very 80s. Nice indoor pool & hot tub & very friendly hotel cat. Having to go outside to get to the breakfast room is a bit of an inconvenience, but all in all I would return.

Friendly and accommodating staff, very convenient location. Beautiful setting with many outdoor areas to enjoy the scenery, such as multiple decks with hammock and benches, tables and a grill. Nice boardwalk along the waterway, fun to watch the boats go by. Although our bed was a little tired, and our room was a little dated, we had a wonderful experience... More

Always leery of booking something online without first previewing it but the several times I called ahead of schedule the staff was very customer friendly via phone. This place is tucked in, very private (if you want it), incredible deal for what they offer and the most gorgeous sunset views. Rooms were exceptionally clean and everything was in working order....

Our third time at the Island Resort and we still love it! The location is very convenient. We walked to many restaurants and shops. It's a short car ride to Assateague Island. Each room we have had has been spotless, large and comfortable. We just love sitting on the balcony watching the sunset after a full day of touring the... More

We have stayed here a number of times and just love it. Great rooms, friendly people, lovely grounds -- and the view of the marshes is the best! The location is convenient.

The hotel was recommended by a friend. It was the perfect place to stay. The view from the balcony was amazing. The room was clean and the staff friendly. Loved it! I will definitely stay here again. For those that are interested there is a complete gym, pool, meeting space, and breakfast building.

This is not the first time I've stayed at this hotel. We arrived early and we were not greeted politely by the women at the desk. She didn't seem to want to bother with us. She didn't even say hello, just a stare. Then she sent us away after telling us no rooms were ready. Okay, that was uncomfortable. So... More
