My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Islander Motel. The motel was close to Manteo/Roanoke Island, Highway 12 going to Hatteras, and Tanger Outlet mall. As others have stated, the motel is an older establishment, but it is very well maintained. When I made the reservation, I was somewhat skeptical about what type of room we would get when we arrived. The rate was only $86 per night for an oceanfront room, and the room was much nicer than we anticipated. The landscaping is immaculate with picnic tables and grills, and a small pool area. The mattress on the bed was very comfortable, and we slept great. The bathroom was small, but very clean. We stayed in room 207, and the view was fabulous. You could actually see the ocean from the bed which isn't something you can do at the larger motels. We could open the door to the balcony and listen to the sound of the waves. Before traveling to Nags Head, I reviewed the motels in the area extensively and even called a few of them. When I called the Islander, the staff was very friendly. The Islander only had an efficiency available for the first night of our stay, but they accomodated us by moving us to an oceanfront room for the next three nights. We had gone out to breakfast the following morning, and when we got back to the motel, the housekeeping staff had our oceanfront room ready and had even moved our luggage to the room. If you prefer a more modern motel, then this place is not for you, but if you just want a relaxing time at the beach, then I would highly recommend the Islander. We saved a lot of money that we were able to spend on other things.
