There is not much to choose from, hotel-wise, in Ocean Isle Beach. This is probably why this hotel is so rundown. There is no incentive for these properties to upgrade their facilities, because they are all equally outdated. We left a night early for the Westin in Charlotte, because the Islander Inn is so grubby. The carpeting was all stained,...
