This is a nice hotel right on the ocean. Rooms are clean and neat. Beds were good. Staff was friendly. Pool area and gazebo are nice and cozy. The breakfast is fine, they have waffle makers. Prices are reasonable, especially based on the location.

I called the Islander Inn manager in January, 2021, about reserving two rooms for mid-May. My two requirements were an ocean view and 2 adjacent or nearby rooms since we were planning to rendezvous with friends - each couple traveling 600+ miles for our post-COVID reunion. I was assured of the ocean view and that, while at that time it was unclear if COVID restrictions would be lifted, the manager would do his best to see that our rooms were adjacent or near one another. I included those two requests in my reservation "Comments" and followed up with a phone call in April and one in May to reconfirm our reservation. When we arrived today, we were given rooms in two different buildings. There is a room adjacent to ours, in which someone else is staying. (I wonder if they made their reservation in mid-January?) When I called the office I was told we had asked for king beds and there were no adjacent rooms with kings. We had not requested kings, and I specifically recall discussing with the manager that we did not care about bed sizes, only LOCATION. "The rooms are all booked, and we can't move anyone." We are extremely unhappy with the hotel's indifference to our dissatisfaction and lack of attention to our request.

Everything was pretty great up until we started taking our luggage to the car. It was approximately 8:30 and check out wasn’t until 11 am. When we got back up to our room there was an unknown man standing there in our room going through the items we had left on the counter since we couldn’t carry them all to the car. When asked what he was doing his response was “what... it isn’t that big of a deal... we thought you left.” When I told him we had until 11 he said we’ll relax it was a mistake. We got the rest of our things and after putting those in the car we went to the front desk. After making them aware of the issue we were told that they would talk to them and they’ve told them in the past they needed to make sure the people were gone before they go in to clean. I do get the business of a quick turn around when people leave but at no point did anyone ask if we were checking it out or if we’d be back. I will also say that the manager Jonathan called me back about twenty minutes later and told me if I’d book through them then he’d try to make it up to me... I’m not sure that at this point I feel my belongings would be safe from the staff. Hopefully they get this figured out because it is a nice place overall for the price we paid.

We just spent 5 nights and have only the highest praise for the accommodations and the staff. We stayed in one of the rooms that allowed us to have our dogs, and it was immaculately clean, convenient, and comfortable. The desk staff were friendly and very helpful, and always respectfully wore masks. The grounds are well cared for. Overall it's a terrific vacation spot, and we'll look forward to returning.

Stayed one night on "island view" side of "pet building". The smell of the room was intolerable and the windows were broken and only one opened and only a crack. There was no plug in the tub or the sink. The oceanfront rooms might have been tolerable because door could be opened. Hallways were disgusting. Beach is beautiful tho.
