My wife and I stayed here for part of our honeymoon. We had an oceanfront room with an amazing view! We loved the fact that we could just walk right out our slider and walk down to the beautiful ocean! One question we did ask ourselves was why no screen slider? That would be perfect for the ocean view rooms!
The staff was very helpful. Housekeeping tended to all our needs. Even supplying us with plasticware when asked if they had any!
Our room was great except for a minor smell of mildew. We believe it came from the sofa. The only other issue in the room was a rusted towel rack!
We really did enjoy The islander and will be back for our anniversary next year. We recommend it and loved all that emerald isle had to offer! Amazing beach!
We left with one mire question Islander! Why no outdoor Jacuzzi?

Stayed: November 2017, travelled as a couple

Thank you for your review. I'm beyond glad to hear that we could help accommodate you for part of your honeymoon. Congratulations! I appreciate so much of your feedback on the sofa smell, towel rack, screen doors, as well as an outdoor jacuzzi. I will discuss this all with the manager to see how we can address the issues and talk about possibly what it would take to put a hot tub in, as it is a great idea. Thank you again for your stay with us and we look forward to seeing you again in a year!

Staff was friendly. Our room was nice with a good sized refrigerator. The views from the large balcony were good, but we could see and hear the people next to us. The hotel is close to a bike path & rents bikes, but has no bike racks to lock them up. Nice touch to have a dehumidifier in the room, but it made terrible sounds. The carpet never got vacuumed in the 4 days we were there. We had been told there were no events planned for our stay, but there was a wedding and we were right over the reception. Thankfully, they stopped the music around 10 pm, but then there were people running down the halls in the middle of the night. I would stay here again, but consider a different part of the resort away from main building.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the event room

Thank you for your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and the convenience of our great location right on the beach. Thank you for your detailed feedback about the bike racks, carpet cleaning, and noisiness/awareness of the event taking place. I will make sure that the manager reminds housekeeping to vacuum as well as remind the front desk to make people aware when a large event is taking place. We want all of our guests to feel informed and accommodated and I appreciate you letting me know how we can improve in those aspects. I still hope that you were able to relax in Emerald Isle and we hope we will see you again in the future! Barry Eagle, Owner

The rooms are clean and the staff helpful. There are chairs on the beach for you to use. There are some rooms that have a great view of the beach. We enjoyed our time there. It is a short walk to the beach.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the ocean with private balcony. There are 2 floors.

Booked this hotel for 3 nights as a small last getaway beach trip/birthday trip for the BF! This is hotel was awesome! The room we got was in good condition and in a good location ! When I saw that this had access to the beach I definitely had to book it, although out room didn't have a beach view.. that wasn't a problem because we weren't in our room for most of the trip anyways ! The first night we stayed which was a Saturday, we couldn't find parking, but once Sunday, Monday and Tuesday came, there was maybe but 3 cars which was perfect ! No noises or anything during our whole trip!!

The staff was friendly and very informative about everything. Love that the hotel was in a good location; near the restaurants, shopping and other public beach access. Although the hotel had complimentary bikes to use from morning till dawn which was a plus as well!

The only down fall about the trip was that it rained, and it was windy 2 out of the 2 days we stayed, and the water in the hotel smelled like chlorine water.

I am definitely booking this hotel again same time next year ! Thank you for the pleasant stay !!
