We booked the queen bed room with a kitchenette online and when we arrived, they upgraded us to the Suite with 2 rooms and king bed with full kitchen because they didn't have any rooms with kitchenette available. It was great with a nice couch. The AC worked great since it was st

We liked the place as it was really easy to find. The breakfast was Good, however there wasn't big choice of thing you can have. The room was very very small. The service was good and there was free parking.

Hello Ra M...we appreciate you taking the time to write a review for Island Hotel. It sounds like you booked our economy room. This room is smaller than the rest of our rooms and considerably less in cost. It still has all the ammenities and is very good for a singlel person. We do hope you will come back again, maybe try the double queen room or one of our spacious suites. We will take great care of you!

Clean Rooms. Clean Property. Pet Friendly. Great friendly staff.
Remind Pet owners to pick up after their pet we all use the common area so be more courteous Hotel does provide doggie bags. Eggs Bacon and sausage would be a nice addition to your Breakfast..

Picture of the beds. Dogs were quite comfortable.
Toilet and bath/shower in area to the left. Sink/mirror to the right.
Do you have a heated swimming pool?
They didn't have it working yet from the storm. Maybe by now. I'd call.

What are breakfast times on weekends?
I think the start times are the same on the weekend as on the week days. You can call them and verify for sure but it opens around 6 and closes about 9 or 10.

Do all the rooms have microwave and refrigerator? Or would I have to call to include that amenity? On TripAdvisor, it states that it doesn't include them but on the main website it specifies that some rooms have kitchens while others are equipped with mircowaves and refrigerators. Having a micro and mini fridge is a must for me.
My experience is that all rooms have a microwave and mini frig. Stayed there 3 Christmas holidays in a row and going back this year, too.

"Excellent Hotel staff! Rooms are very nice on the first floor!"
"We usually stay during Christmas, so being summer & 7/4 may explain some of the problems."
"This is only a 2 story hotel. I would stay on the second story because if you have stompers you will hear them on the first floor."
"If you have a large group, grab the Suite which features a full kitchen, a king bed, queen bed, and a sofa sleeper."
"Room 225 is the quietest. But, none are extremely noisey."
