We were able to booked at last minute. Great location and easy to get luggage to the room with the elevator. Stayed 3 days and room wasn't cleaned daily until around 3 or 4 pm. Cleaning people were friendly but the cleaning consisted of changing trash bags and giving clean towels. No vacuuming, no changing sheets, no cleaning the bathroom.... More

The beachfront location saves this place. It is a standard run of the mill motel style place. The staff is friendly and the bed was comfy. But it is not particularly clean. The furniture had stains on it that were obvious and detracted from the atmosphere.

This was our third stay at the Islander Inn over the past 5 years. The hotel is older, but the location, friendly staff and ample parking keep us coming back. This visit we had a second story, ocean front, king sized room with a balcony overlooking the pool and gazebo. The rooms provide a dorm-sized refrigerator, microwave and small coffee... More

Made a last minute booking here due to an overbooking at our original hotel. Thankfully this is a pet friendly hotel as we were travelling with two dogs. They do charge a $60 per pet fee, and pets cannot go onto the beach apart from during very limited hours, which disappointingly we were only informed of after we had checked... More

Absolutely terrible. This was my second stay here and there is no way I would ever return (absent some serious updating to the property). My first stay was during off season in what I now know to be a renovated oceanfront room. I wasn't looking for luxury and the room was a fair price. I would have given the experience... More

Balcony right on the oceanfront. Older room but clean and comfy. Great AC. king size bed and sleeper sofa were both comfortable. Beach access, 2 pools, Tiki Bar and breakfast were worth the stay. Reasonably priced. All staff members were helpful and friendly. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

We took a family trip here in July. The hotel is conveniently located about a half mile (walking distance) from the pier, great Italian ice, mini golf, shopping and eating.

Oceanfront room highest floor located in building five of six buildings. Parking is an adventure especially if you are on the inside of three slots. Only one elevator for all six buildings and ONE ice-machine for all six "towers". Room décor was haphazardly applied the trim painting was not neat.

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Continental breakfast had a variety of options, but limited seating area. Mini Frig and microwave were handy for leftovers. Indoor and Outdoor pool areas were clean, but no towels provided in pool area. Easy access to the beach. Free parking but limited covered spaces.
