Bathroom was nasty bed had mold and when u turn on the lights the roaches try to kick u out. I unplugged the phone so my daughter wouldn't make calls the next morning they said I broke it and wouldn't give deposit back. Islander should be condemned.

The hallway STINKS an indescribable odor, I cover my nose everytime I walk into the hallway. I can't stand it, It makes me gag. The smell of cigarettes is so extremely heavy! Though the management says "no smoking" they do... More

I stay at the Islander Motel. It is in the worst condition. You never bring your car there, because the parking lot is a patchwork quilt. The staff doesn't even like to live there.

I live in Fremont, CA and I think that the city chould take care of this place. It needs to be put out of business. The manager is awful, the place is trashy and it attracts all of the worse people. Fremont does not nees this dump.

This hotel is in serious need of a new Manager. and the rooms we wont even discuss. The Motel in a whole is a complete disaster. There is also some sort of problem with the "Permanent Guests"... police.
