Island View is a nice, comfortable hotel with courteous staff and nice restaurants. The Grill has good, moderately priced dishes in a comfortable atmosphere. The bakery is divine. The rooms are comfortable with a safe and refrigerator. One of the few hotels that still allows smoking...thanks Island View...please smokers...be courteous and considerate so that the privilege is not discontinued. BUT, wha happened to the popular noted casino return from the casino. My last visit was very disappointing with the gaming...not a usual occurance with Island View. The check-in experience was the ultimate. Early check-ins get a coupon for a free drink and hors d'ouevres at their bar until 5:00 pm. All in all, the Island View is a nice experience but look out Island View, the gambling reputation that brought the people to you is slowing vanishing!
