Although this was a small hotel room, it was extremely clean and nice inside. The bathroom shower was updated and stylish. It’s not the Four Seasons, but the quality for the price is a great value. We loved our time at this hotel!

Clean and tidy and, relatively, inexpensive. Happy to recommend and would stay again. There is some noise from the adjacent road and I was conscious of that, though my partner didn’t notice it at all. Free breakfast is nice, though a little odd as it’s in the reception.

We needed an overnight hotel on our way to the airport and chose The Islander Motel. It was all we required, easy to find, clean room, comfortable bed, room with fridge and microwave. Good value for money.

I have a large family, and need an adjoining room as well as a mini-fridge. Do you have this type of room available Aug. 5-7th 2015 If so, I would like to book asap!!
I think it does...but I would say call them to see if there is and reserve it

"All rooms seemed to be the same"
"Ocean Avenue is a 'drag strip' on the weekends, so a bit noisy, but the hotel itself, and the patrons, were quiet."
"we were on the second floor (room 230) very close to the street above the office and I heard nothing after I went to bed"
"It seems second floor not handicap accessible. We stayed in ground floor room and were not bothered by noise from above, or parking lot."
"Rooms in back are quieter. Upstairs tends to get more traffic noise."
