After traveling for 4 hours on a Friday, I get there and the hotel lobby is closed. I was unable to receive a refund and could not cancel. I had to go to another hotel. It was a waste of money and time.

My family and I stayed here two years ago and were very pleased. We've stated here a couple times before and were pleased. Unfortunately, the inn has gone down hill drastically. House keeping did little more than take the trash out every day. The room was dirty upon arrival. Floors had sand and hair all over them. Shower had sand...

When we checked in, our room was dirty. Dirty tissues and cigarette butts on counters, and floor had obviously not been swept or vacuumed. Room also smelled like a wet dog. I travel a lot for my job and stay in hotels often so I always check the linens as soon as I can after check in. Upon checking the...

The Island Inn isn't super fancy but it is a great basic beach hotel. The floors in the room were tiled which makes sense for sand at the beach. It has free WiFi, coffee maker, fridge etc. The room was clean and the staff very nice. It is a couple of blocks from the beach itself but worth the short...

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at Island Inn of Atlantic Beach. Again, our visit was stress free and our little apartment was fabulous. Even though the beach is a few blocks away, you won't be disappointed. If you're on the fence about choosing a place to stay, give this little gem a look!

Motel location is in a great location on the island. Our room had a beach cottage decor. King size bed very comfortable and small refrigerator and microwave was adequate. Our room (113) was very close to the highway and the a/c was loud (but it cooled) so some may find it difficult to sleep. We had no problem with the...

The people who work there are really friendly and relaxed. I also completely loved the location because it was a short walk to the beach and restaurants & stores. I rented upstairs apartment-type spot and it was extremely spacious. Will stay here next time I'm down!

Nice motel located as soon as you cross the bridge into Atlantic Beach - Great location! Nice pool and close to the Crab claw restaurant on the beach in walking distance. The rooms were adequate with soft beds (that we like) and WIFI Free. The staff was exceptional. Not the Ritz, but definitely worth the price. Also, pet friendly if...

This little condo-hotel was such a great surprise! Atlantic Beach is small and I was skeptical about it instead of close-by locations; but this little lodging gem made it worthwhile. Close to main intersection but no traffic noise. We just rented a typical room-style place but it was large and the high ceilings made it seem even larger. The decor...

The Island Inn is the old-school beach motel of your dreams: charming, immaculately clean, and well-maintained. In fact, I downloaded the TripAdvisor app specifically so I could leave this review. Our room was adorably decorated in a tropical style, with tile floors and bright colors. The pool area was surrounded by a white fence and palm trees, and again, was...
