Have stayed here in the past, so I was really disappointed when I stayed here recently. To be fair, they have the best pricing for ocean front rooms. However, things went downhill quickly...First, my room keys didn't work (not a biggie) so I hauled my stuff back to the office and received new keys. Went back to the room and...

My girlfriend and I were house hunting in this area, we booked a low cost two night stay. First, the positives: The hotel is located on the ocean, the price was right, and the indoor pool and hot tubs are great features at the price we paid. It was fine for a two night stay. The wall-mounted tv was decent,...

We booked this hotel for a last minute trip to the beach. We picked this one for a few reasons: its location, the oceanfront view and its low cost (only $85/night). The hotel met our expectations. The hotel was easy to find (directly facing the ocean), our room was clean and luminous. A large balcony with chairs and table was...

WE recently visited the inn due to a conference wrestling tournament in Shallotte, NC. We wanted to make a family mini weekend out of it and choose this place for the beach, indoor pool and hot tub. The location on the beach was good and about ten minute drive from the event site. However, the hot tub was "SCALDING HOT"...

The Islander Inn is a very nice vacation hotel. It is on the beach with a walkway from the hotel. It appears to have been refurbished and done very well. They offer breakfast; there is an indoor and outdoor pool. The rooms have mini fridge and micro-wave. There are 7 elevated buildings connected with a walkway and one of the...

Room was clean and nice, beds were comfy. Easy access to the beach, and I was very happy with the breakfast items offered. The inside pool and hot tub was very nice, and there was a microwave and refrigerator in the room. I will absolutely stay here the next time I'm in town.

I have been coming to the Islander with my dog several times over the past few years. It's reasonably priced, clean and the staff is nice. The rooms in the dog friendly building have been improved with new laminate flooring and a wide screen TV. The walls are pretty thin so it can be noisy if the hotel is crowded....

Came here to getaway for Thanksgivings. Got an oceanfront room and it was truly ocean front. Of all the oceanfronts I have stayed in this one literally puts you right on top of the ocean. Sitting on the balcony gave the best view ever. The atmosphere was laid back and relaxing the whole time. It was a very family friendly...

We just moved to NC from the Midwest and decided to take advantage of the reasonable off-season rates to take our first trip to the beach.
