“Islander Motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

I've stayed at the Islander on our annual fishing trip for four years now and love the place. Yes it is older but pretty well maintained. The desk staff is fantastic, always helpful. Expect some noise in the early morning hours as fishermen (me) :) are leaving for the charter boats, but otherwise a quiet, comfortable motel. For a resort area I find the room price is very reasonable.

I was misled to The Islander by the many glowing reviews. It is old, dingy, and over priced. The beds were very uncomfortable (hard), the pillows were lumpy, and overall not very clean. If they decreased their price by at least half, that would be a more accurate value for the accommodations given.
Also, word to the wise, you do not want to eat at the restaurant available at the islander known as Half Moon Bay Bar and Grill. Both the food and service are terrible. See yelp reviews.

The rooms were outdated, the parking was difficult and the customer service was lacking. My husband and I went for a quick weekend fishing trip. There was no parking for our boat and we were told we had to figure that out ourselves. We ended up paying more for a spot in their rv park for our boat and trailer. The room was shorty and the cleaning service was awful. They made the bed and replaced toiletries however they left dirty linens on the counter with a dirty cup and didn't empty the coffee maker. There were,no screens on the windows either. We paid the higher price for the area thinking we would have better accommodations than the other local motels - not again. The attached restaurant. Half-Moon Bay advertises the best Bloody Mary and it was nothing special. Just lots of condiments in the glass. The food was sub-standard in the restaurant also, got the fish and chips and they were overcooked. The only positives would be the water pressure in the shower and the rv park. We would consider staying at the rv park but that is it.

The Islander has a hotel component and an associated RV park with about 60 spaces. Frankly, I can't understand how the other RV parks in town get any business. The view was spectacular--better than anything we have experienced in our travels to the national parks or anywhere else in the US. The front of our rig was hanging over the lip of a 20 ft berm to the harbor below. Boats, birds, sea lions and more created a constant flow of entertaining activity out our front window. Oh yes, and these are full hookups with great WiFi connectivity and personable staff.

Room Tip: Choose the marina view of it is available rather than one of the back spaces unless you need a pull...

We stayed at the Islander Motel for a crabbing/clamming expedition. The location was excellent; a short walk to the crabbing docks. I was very grateful to be able to book a room for a single night (most of the other hotels require a 2-night minimum stay). The building is old but the rooms are tastefully decorated, clean, and comfortable. The parking lot could use repaving. Check-in and check-out was very quick and easy. We stayed in the 2-queen suite and had a fabulous view of the marina and plenty of room for our family of 5. The motel is not very quiet, you can hear the people in the rooms above and next to you, but it wasn't too bad on the weekend we were there, it seems like everybody was quiet after about 9 pm.

This place might not look like much from the outside, but we were so pleasantly surprised by our room, the view and the comforts provided. The beds were comfortable, the room was spacious and clean. Our view of the marina couldn't have been a better one. The restaurant on site is a little spendy, but the food and Bloody Mary were the best!!

The islanders rooms are outdated but very clean and comfortable. The restaurant has great food and great service. KC went above and beyond to help us out. The people at the Islander make all of the difference
