My wife and I stayed her for the first time this fall and found the Islander Inn and the location to be very pleasant. The facility was clean and well maintained. The location is very nice and even though our visit was in the off-season, I doubt the beach gets very crowded even during the peak summer months due to...

We went to islander inn last weekend with another couple. Weather was great, no crowds. Lots of weddings, though, and that was fun to watch, as we are almost 37 years married and other couple is almost 39 years. Staff is great, they do allow dogs in one of the buildings, but you cannot tell if dogs have stayed there....

We stayed at the Ocean Isle Inn from September 8-12 in room 6105. The room faced the ocean and the balcony area was so nice - also very clean (no bugs or dirt).

The place was ok but nothing special. I thought by the reviews and the hotel ranking that it would be better. The oceanfront view was nice. The stairs and/or the long walk to the elevator in building two would be a problem for anyone who is not in the best of shape. I find it strange they feel the need...

Got a room with a balcony view of the ocean, it was cool inside 'temp-wise' but the humidity was very high and the bedding and carpet felt damp and dank to the touch. They have an 'in-the-wall' unit for heating and cooling and it's kind of loud and annoying when running. There is no return air ducts so even though...

I find it hard to truly rate hotels against each other because the locations and context vary so much. Compared to other hotels in the area, this certainly is one of the best. Yes, the rooms are a little bit older and the water pressure is laughable, but that's about all the negatives I have personally about this place. It...
