Good pricing and a decent room. The only negative was a rotten-egg smell when turning on the water. The odor dissipated after 30 seconds but was a disturbing aspect of the stay. I will give them another visit in the future.

We travel on business a lot and try to stay in less expensive places to help costs BUT the places still must be 'what my wife refers to as nice'. Ratings matter. The Island Inn definitely fits that description. Granted it's an older business but was extremely well kept, comfortable and wonderfully furnished with well-kept and sturdily built furniture....not the... More

I travel for work and stay in a lot of motel properties across the US. The Island Inn is in a great location, with plenty of food options within walking distance. Check in was quick & easy, and the rooms were clean, with new mattress, tv, carpet etc. Will be staying here again!

The reviews I had read online made me really think about if I wanted to stay here or not but it worked out fine. The breakfast was very basic but the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. I liked how they gave a soft and a firm pillow on each bed. This place is reasonable but you... More

Horrible TV. Hairy room with a funky smell that I couldn't quite determine the cause. I rank this place just below the seedy motel you see off distant state highways. Bed was stuff and lumpy with two flat pillows. Lady who checked us in was very nice.

Very friendly and helpful front desk staff, large clean rooms, small bathroom. Didn't need the full refrigerator in the room, but others might. Minimal breakfast-ceral, toast, coffee, etc. Newer linens would be nice. Overall, inexpensive place to stay the night on a cross country road trip. It met the needs of my family.

Was Leary as you get a real key and the doors are on the outside of the hotel. Smelled like your Grandmas house and has very small rooms. The thing that sent me running was the bed bugs found in one of the beds. Exploded and dripped blood onto the sheets when we picked it off. Spreading the word
