We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and had a great time. The room was very nice and looked recently renovated. Ample room for all of our stuff. Great view from the balcony. The outdoor pool was clean. No housekeeping was provided due to Covid-19 precautions but we were only there for 2 nights so it was not needed any way. The minimal contact we had with hotel staff was pleasant. We will be back for the 4th of July and are looking forward to it.

We are visiting family nearby, and it's a decent place. Ive read some mixed reviews,and it's fine. Really. Easy to get to. It's right on the beach. Beach view room is worth the additional cost. There IS an elevator. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room is a decent size and has everything you need. Really the only slight negative were loud children running around until 11pm. That's not the hotels fault. There is some wear and tear on things, but salty sea air is to blame. Room Tip- bring an extra towel or floor mat, the wind brings salty air up on the deck and you room will be sandy. All In all, I would stay again.

It's a little outdated, but perfect for off season! We'll be back for another winter stay! Definitely wouldn't ever stay here in season. The walls are paper thin, and you can hear every single footstep above you, and everything else in the rooms next to you. I mean EVERYTHING. That was the only major downfall. Quiet, clean, beautiful oceanfront view and private balcony was great. Got to see several deer, a red fox, and a bobcat in the dunes from the balconies at night. Watched several dolphins every morning. That was pretty cool! The last night we stayed people were booked next to us early afternoon, with dogs that barked LOUDLY all night. It got to the point I called the front desk to complain (as it was making our dogs anxious and uncomfortable) the clerk heard their dogs plain as day before I had even mentioned them. The people then came back almost immediately (front desk called I'm sure) to shut the dogs up by blasting the tv so loud you could hear it as if you were sitting a foot in front of it. By then it was pointless to call the front again, as we were leaving early morning. Had it been earlier in the week, I would have either requested they be moved, us, or I would have checked out early, it was that loud. The pool and hot tub could definitely use a good scrub down, but it was nice to have the option to go, and the area itself was nice, bright and clean. Breakfast was your usual continental breakfast, waffles, yogurts, cereal, etc. The area was very clean. Our room was nice, clean and smelled really good! We were very appreciative of the laminate floors, carpet in hotels is so gross, especially at the beach! I liked you could walk through all the buildings to get to the pool. Some of the other buildings smelled really bad. One smelled like rotten food and garbage, another was just funky! Whoever I spoke to on the phone while booking was incredibly helpful (I can't remember her name), as well as all the other staff we bumped into. Check in/out was a breeze. I loved that they're dog friendly and not breed restrictive. Overall it was worth the trip, and we will stay here again off season!

Lost our best friend- 8 year old Reese-our black labrador DAUGHTER (we love her so much) her lungs filled up with blood and there was nothing we could do but suffer. They made us leave. I cussed out the manager in charge and the awful assistant beside him who put up her hand in front of my phone when I pulled out a picture of her. They may be awful but they got put in their place. Housekeeping looks at you like they want to slice your throats. Weve been here 5 different weeks since 2019 and that has never changed. This is more like a 1 star hotel with garbage linens now. Keep your eye on the housekeeping. Management will be replaced one day with someone who terrible maybe. Were just going to go back to renting- this was a downhill journey that ended with my soul being hurt badly by a couple of idiots. The verbal beating I gave them that kept them backing up gave me a win God bless me. You people are horrible and our bank called the place to confirm these things and charged back our entire stay and we paid NOTHING.

We spent one night at the Islander Inn when we decided to make a winter getaway to the beach. We booked an ocean front room, and enjoyed watching the shrimp boats on the sea. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and capable. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because the breakfast was only adequate and the water pressure wasn't great.
