I loved this motel! If you get the 1st floor there is a backdoor that you can just walk out of and there's the beach! It's absolutely amazing! The rooms are clean and nice and the pool is really nice as well! I would recommend this as it is cheap too!

Easy access as you enter Nags Head. Nice motel, clean rooms. Nice staff and located right on the beach. We did not book ahead and found this as soon as we hit the local road Desk person recommended 2 great places to eat. Fantastic. Will stay here again

Gorgeously kept grounds with picnic area, lounging swing/hammocks amongst the bougainvillea, and a darling -heated- pool! Our room with a little kitchenette was perfect, though I might bring one of those Velcro portable screens for the door so we could keep it open to better hear the surf and smell the sea. I loved sitting on the patio looking at...

This was our second trip to the Islander. It's still clean and well kept. Location is perfect. We'll stay there again. We had one issue and it was addressed within minutes. Great service. We traveled with several family members, and it worked out better than us renting a house together. All of our rooms were in a row, and we...

This is our second year staying here and we love it. You don't need to roundup a posse in order to afford to stay here. There is a range of room rates and the amenities meet our needs. It is an older facility, but very well maintained; and the owners, who also are the on-site managers, are friendly and attentive.

Want to save a few hundred bucks for a long weekend... stay here. Rooms on the small side but clean and functional. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Ocean views available and super short walk to beach. If you would rather spend time on beach and out it's perfect. However, if you like to show Facebook pic of your lavish room...

Well run, customer friendly attentive owner and right on the beach. Basic but all you need in Nags Head. Near to all Nags Head and OBX offer. Nice grounds. Walk out to the beach or sit by the pool. Clean rooms man with a view of the Ocean.

We stayed at The Islander Motel for a week last week. We had a very nice stay. The room was very clean. I noticed some reviews said the rooms are dated but I thought was a typical motel room, only cleaner! Upon checking in, a man working there offered to help us carry in our luggage. Other than hotels with...

The best kept secret in Nags Head. Super convenient location, near outlets and restaurants. The ocean view was breathtaking and the accommodations were as expected. Laura was awesome and helpful with information about the area's activities. The owners are locals who are concerned about their guests. No regrets here; we are going back!
