“Great place with Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2009

Spent a great fall weekend in Atlantic Beach. This hotel was perfectly located right near the beach, great restaurants, and a short drive away from other great destinations. The room was clean, new, and well furnished. They have a great staff, who are more than willing to accomodate any request.
Our next trip will certainly include a reservation at the Island Inn.

This lovely, recently renovated hotel is only a block off the water on the beach side of the road. The rooms were very clean, the manger was very pleasant and the staff was helpful. The rooms are perfect for a couple's getaway, and the peaceful location ensures there will not be disturbances from your neighbors. Atlantic beach is a wonderful place to visit, especially after labor day, when most of the tourist have left until next summer. Next time you are planning a trip to Atlantic Beach, think about staying at the Island Inn; not only will you be pleasantly surprised with the hospitality, but you will save a ton compared to the chain hotels on the island. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

My husband and I chose to stay at Island Inn of Atlantic Beach based on the reviews listed here and could not be happier. What a great find! The beach is about 3 blocks away on quiet, back roads; there is a small but clean pool on site which is great for cooling off after a long day at the beach; mini-fridges are in each room which allowed us to eat breakfast and lunch without going out to eat; great decor - I could go on but I really recommend you try it out and see for yourself. Clean, comfortable and a great price.

This is a great place to stay! We have stayed for three years in a row and if anything it just gets better. Now they even have pet friendly rooms! Staff do everything possible to keep you happy. Rooms are incredibly clean. I almost feel guilty making my normal mess! Great value!! Great price!! I hope we can stay every year!

First note: call for directions - google and mapquest take you five miles past the actual site!
If you've passed McDonald's on the left after turning onto Fort Macon Rd you've gone to far.
Positives: room was very nicely decorated, we had an efficiency room (201), very comfortable bed, Everything was clean. Small fridge in room and coffee maker. Noise was never a factor even with a small fire station nearby. It's close to town, great restaurants (recommend McGurdys!!), close to the beach! Pool was nice and clean too. Housekeeping was very nice, checkin was great- very knowledgeable of area.
Minor negatives: room 201 is a corner unit, right across from the pool with the drive and parking between the pool and unit. The drive turns into a narrow ally at the corner so if you are driving a large vehicle maneuvering parking and then having enough room to turn down the ally (the way out) would be tricky. Curtains don't block out the light very well at night (course I like a dark room to sleep) that said we slept very well.
We will definitely stay again - want to try one of the larger units that's not by the ally.

This is one of the few places that allows pets on the beach. The rooms were nice,clean, and the room rate was very reasonable. It was a PERFECT place for myself, dog, and roommate from college to stay for the weekend.

I stumbled upon the Inn accidently on a search of Atlantic Beach. Boy am I glad we did. We were able to get a room with a full kitchen so that we could make some of our own meals. Plus our growing boy is eatting us out of house and home so food on hand is good. LOL The beach is about 5 minutes away by foot. The staff was wonderful and the rooms were beyond my expectations. They were extremely clean and frankly they have the most comfortable bed I have ever had at a hotel. And the decor was wonderful, think caribbean colors. My son's favorite was the flamingos on the bedspread. We will be staying here again in the future and I highly recommend it to someone looking for a comfortable place to stay that is close to the beach. ENJOY!!!!
