We had a great, albeit too brief stay at Islander Inn last weekend. Beautiful location, great price, good breakfast, and loved the balcony. The staff was friendly and helpful and we found our accommodations to be very clean. We hope to visit again, if we have the opportun

Room was roomy and clean. Great view from Oceanside balcony. However, I didn’t see anything on website that says no smoking anywhere. (Not even on your balcony) Also pets are all the way at end building #7. I have problems walking. To get from lobby to building 7 you have to wal

We made an “afternoon of” reservation while on the road headed to beach for a HOA meeting. The room (2nd floor Inlet Room) was as described online with decor sleek and contemporary. Very clean with microwave and frig. All the nice newness was ruined by nightfall when the lack

I stayed here last spring and returned yesterday. I LOVE this place! Clean, comfortable and very affordable. ON THE BEACH! No doubt. My favorite thing is to leave my balcony door open when I go to bed and let the ocean put me to sleep. It's that close! Private parking and

We were in OIB for a wedding, with the wedding party and the wedding itself at a vacation rental three doors down the street. As a result, other than sleeping and dressing, we spent very little time at the motel. Everything about the motel was fine--quiet, clean, a nice view, eas

The reviews of the hotel are really bad, I have reservations there and I don't know id I need to change them...
It is nothing fancy, but it's not a dump. Good sized room, balcony on ocean side room. We go there two or three times a year off season. Only issue we have had are small bath towels and worn mattress.

I was told there was an elevator, and it is only 2 floor's so why did you have to carry your luggage up several floors?
There are 7 buildings that are connected by outside bridges or connectors. The elevator is in the #1 building. You park beneath the buildings, so you have to go up one flight to get to the first floor and two flights to get to the second floor. If you use the elevator, which is accessed from the parking lot, you don't have to climb any stairs, but you may have to go from one building to another through doors.

Do you provide beach chairs and beach umbrellas for your guests?
Islander Inn does not provide chairs or umbrellas. You can rent them from a company located just on the beach in front of the inn. If you need both it is $25 per day.

"Ocean side or sound side available. I wasn't there to look at the sound..."
"Opt for the wonderful ocean side rooms....the balconies are large and the view is just magnificent!!!"
"Get a balcony facing the ocean"
"request a room away from elevator to avoid noise. Get a lower level room if you want WIFI"
"Ice and breakfast is in building 1 so if you don't want to walk too far you'd want building 1 or 2 for convenience."
