Our room overlooked the back water and was delightful. Nothing real fancy, but perfect. The only issue was the noise of the air conditioner, but that happens in a lot of places. The staff was very friendly from check-in, breakfast and to check-out. The Island Motor Inn was very clean and well kept.

We were there over the past weekend and thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of this place. The sunsets from the balcony were awesome. The staff helped out with answering our many questions and making us feel comfortable. Our room was clean, bright and comfortable. Will definately stay there again!

Love this place. Stayed here for many years. Staff is awesom. Eb=ven tho we have a home on the island now..we still stop in to say hi and rub Toeby's ears! Sometimes we will stop by to watch the ducks jump into the water to go into their marsh home for the night. Excellent sunset pix can be taken here... More

Nice large rooms. Could use a little updating. Beautiful views. Nice breakfast. A little off the beaten path in a good way, out of the traffic. Indoor pool and jacuzzi. Some days the shower never really got very hot. New beds, very comfortable but high. I'm 5'8" and still had to jump to get in.

This was the second year that we had stayed here and last year was marvelous. This would have been fine but if you are handicapped this is not the place for you. We stayed in the handicapped unit and they have new beds which are very comfortable once you can get up in one. I had to borrow a stepstool... More

Very nice hotel, reasonable rates, beautiful views, friendly staff. Hammocks, porch swing, exercise room and 2 pools. Every room has a view of the bay. Enjoyed birdwatching from the balcony. Easy walking to downtown shops and resturants. Can't wait to go back.

the Island Motor Inn is one of the best places to stay on the Island. Great views, large rooms, clean and quiet. The office staff is always pleasant and helpful, and now that we've gotten our house we still go back to visit them and their cat Toeby. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is looking for a... More

We couldn't be happier with our recent stay. The prices are very reasonable and don't skyrocket during the holidays like most. Our view (from room 152) was amazing (but all rooms are waterfront). The property itself has nice sitting and relaxing areas. My favorite part of the hotel is the resident cat in the lobby:) The sunsets are a can't... More

Started off rough the front cashier lady was very rude. Then straight lie to me said my room wasn't ready. Another lady just gave the key to me. Guess room was really ready but because I was an hour rude lady didn't want me to have key early. This has never happened before. The breakfast used to be better still... More
