This was our second time staying at the Islander, our previous visit was in December 2012. We had a second floor ocean view room, and the views are amazing! The beds are also very comfortable (a pleasant surprise). The Inn was more crowded this time than it was in December, due to it being spring break, and the staff handled the crowds well, with my only complaint being that the breakfast room ran out of blueberry muffins on our second of four days. The rooms are well appointed with a microwave, mini fridge, coffee maker, and plenty of towels and toiletries.
One issue we noticed besides the muffins is that we noticed many people coming and using the Inn's parking lot to park in while going out on the beach, rather than using the public parking area a very short distance down the road. Perhaps a placard hung from the rear view mirror of guests cars could help with this?
Altogether, a lovely inn! We have already booked our next stay, and plan on many more.
