We found a blood stain on our bed and on my friends bed that was in a different room. We also had black hair on our pillow case , a toilet that didn't flush EVER and a tub that wouldn't hold water. I was in the new " renovated" rooms also and had these issues. It also had a very... More

Stayed one night and regretted it. Should have been less than half the price paid. You can hear people's conversations next door as well as when people walk by. At night you can hear kids running back and forth and knocking the wall. Never again.

Would not waste my time on this location. The back buildings were not as what they were posted online. No fitted sheets on the beds, ants in our room, bathroom light took forever to turn on, dirty, toilet didn't flush half the time and the tub took forever to drain. The only thing good about this hotel was their pool.

Paid $622 for 2 nights. Horrible experience. The room smelled terrible. Everything was disgusting! Reminded me of a room from a horror movie. Beds were the most noisy mattresses you could ever imagine. The room was full of flies. I kept finding centipedes everywhere. We requested for our sheets to be changed and to have extra towels and it took... More

Got here tonight and we just left because we were so incredibly disgusted with the state of our room. Dirty sheets with blood stains and random pieces of hair on them. Moldy bathroom. Flies in the room. Seriously, you're better off sleeping in your car than trying to stay here. Oh, and they don't do refunds. They'll just move you... More

My husband and I needed a few days to get away this summer and because it was kind of a last minute thing, we weren't able to get a room at our favorite boardwalk hotel. The Islander had vacancies, and we thought to ourselves "How bad could it be?" We should have been forewarned by the fact that the motel... More

The most disgusting place I've ever stayed in my 40 years visiting OC. Not only was the room disgusting, the front desk employee was as rude & nasty as they come!!!! I would never recommend staying here! The room smelled horrible & the bathroom dated back to the 60's along with the mold! I would not bath my grandson in... More
