This is a small, but nice hotel. The staff at the front are pleasant. For right now, the front desk is located in the first room on the bottom deck. The front building is currently under construction/renovation. They are well behind their schedule for finishing the front lobby, desk, meeting rooms, banquet room. Possibly, that may be why there was...

This hotel was clean, quite and the hospitality of all the employees made it such an awesome time. Kelly was great from the time we checked in to the time we left and the manger took good care of us as well! The corner suites was the best but the other rooms were very comfortable and to our satisfaction.

Overall, this is a good choice for accommodations in Emerald Isle. The location is great...steps to the beach! This was my family's first time to Emerald Isle so we had no idea what to expect, other than what we saw/read about online. We wanted a relaxing beach vacation and that's exactly what we got. Rooms here are decent....big enough overall....

We stayed three nights on the second floor. Have visited the Islander thru the last 10 years. Very happy to see the addition of bicycles and lounges for the beach. The addition of towels poolside is a nice touch. The front desk staff was so kind to brew decaf coffee for us each morning. Sheets and bath towels were soft....

Everything was wonderful, loved the proximity to the beach and everything else on Emerald Isle. Staff was friendly, room was clean, all good. I'd like it to be cheaper -- particularly when off season -- but I feel that way about everything but you get a good place reliably.

Very nice place. Neat and clean. Great location right on the beach. Friendly staff. We stayed one night in October and caught fantastic weather. Beach access and pool area are very nice. Hammocks are a nice touch.

We have just returned from a week long stay at the Islander Inn and Suites. Our room was on the second floor and we had a beautiful view of the ocean. We found everything in the room nicely decorated and clean. The staff were so friendly! Chaise lounge chairs were available for guests to take down to the beach. Keurig...

First I'll say there aren't a ton of hotel options in the area and this is by far the best location. That is why I'm giving it four stars - location is near dining, things to do, and grocery/shopping. The hotel is also right on the beach, so you can walk down easily which is nice. The pool and beach...

Our family has enjoyed the Islander Inn and Suites for 2 years. The beach front and location on Emerald Isle is ideal. It is walking distance to different restaurants, stores, and bars. Family friendly go-carts, waterslides, and an arcade are always walkable. Not all rooms have ocean view, but it is just a short walk outside your door. The staff...
