Very nice budget hotel, room was clean with comfortable beds. It seemed a bit overprice, but unfortunately there's not that many hotels in the area, it has a great oceanfront location. Friendly staff, and good lite breakfast included in price.

Was very sad that the room was nothing like the pictures on line. The staff is not friendly at all. Furniture was gross in the room. The love seat was totally rusted out. Carpet was filthy and poorly vacuumed. Toilet moved when we sat on it....never again.

Our room was ocean view and what a view we got, sunrise thru sunset, unobstructed 360 deg. Very clean, comfortable and even though it was one level up from the outdoor pool it was quiet (not overly utilized) which may have been to the fact that they had an indoor pool as well. Within walking distance of tourist shops, great... More

We were able to booked at last minute. Great location and easy to get luggage to the room with the elevator. Stayed 3 days and room wasn't cleaned daily until around 3 or 4 pm. Cleaning people were friendly but the cleaning consisted of changing trash bags and giving clean towels. No vacuuming, no changing sheets, no cleaning the bathroom.... More

The beachfront location saves this place. It is a standard run of the mill motel style place. The staff is friendly and the bed was comfy. But it is not particularly clean. The furniture had stains on it that were obvious and detracted from the atmosphere.

This was our third stay at the Islander Inn over the past 5 years. The hotel is older, but the location, friendly staff and ample parking keep us coming back. This visit we had a second story, ocean front, king sized room with a balcony overlooking the pool and gazebo. The rooms provide a dorm-sized refrigerator, microwave and small coffee... More

Made a last minute booking here due to an overbooking at our original hotel. Thankfully this is a pet friendly hotel as we were travelling with two dogs. They do charge a $60 per pet fee, and pets cannot go onto the beach apart from during very limited hours, which disappointingly we were only informed of after we had checked... More

Absolutely terrible. This was my second stay here and there is no way I would ever return (absent some serious updating to the property). My first stay was during off season in what I now know to be a renovated oceanfront room. I wasn't looking for luxury and the room was a fair price. I would have given the experience... More
