I stayed here with a friend during SandFest 2017 this past weekend. I received a courtesy call on Saturday around noon letting me know that our room was ready. This was awesome because we were expecting check-in to be at 4PM. Because of SandFest, traffic delayed us but when we arrived, check-in was easy and quick. Our room was clean...

This place grew on me. Very nervous as we checked in and our room smelled and needed maintenance but were immediately given a new room that was much better. Staff was super friendly. Hotel is about a mile off main strip so a little quieter but can't walk to much. Can see how it could get loud here during busy...

Thank you Cathy for writing a review. We do apologize for the maintenance issue, but are pleased we could get you settled in a timely manner. The game room is a lot of fun and a great way to burn off some extra energy before bedtime! We do hope you will come back again and be our guest very soon.

This is a great value for the price. We stayed in a suite and were surprised at the size of the rooms. More like an apartment. Very clean and comfortable. Will stay again next time we are in the area.

Our family had a fabulous time. This hotel is so cute, clean and comfortable! We had two rooms on the end- adjoining and one with a kitchenette. It met all of our family's needs. We could even bring our dog! We will definitely come again! If there was one concern, it would be that the walls were thin. The middle...

The staff at The Island Hotel was knowledgable, friendly and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and larger than we expected. Unfortunately the walls are quite thin and we had party girls as neighbors. (It wasn't even spring break time!) The location worked well for us. The breakfast was very basic, but as advertised. For the price we paid it...

Friendly informative staff from the moment we got there til we checked out. The room was the nicest hotel for this price point we have stayed at. Closely located to the beach, restaurants located minutes away, and could hear the sound of the beach from your hotel door. Size of room was bigger than expected.

Paper thin walls. It's after midnight and NOISY! I know it's spring break but seriously? The tv cuts out constantly. It's a motel not a hotel. Shocked that reviews were good for this place. Old, dingy and cheap everything! Price did not reflect value. Room should have been $69 not $245! Rip off.
