Oak Island is a small beach town with what may be the friendliest people ever and this inn is run by an amazing couple. Walking distance to the beach (2 blocks), very clean rooms, a pool and close to restaurants this is a perfect place. When we mentioned his new boat he even brought over some fresh caught/cooked cobia for...

I decided to take an impromptu trip to the beach with my dog. The ladies at the front desk were really friendly to me and my dog, they even had dog treats in the reception area. The Island Inn is really close to the beach. You walk across the street and use their private beach access walkway. There is a...

The Island Inn on Oak Island was a perfect getaway for my husband and me over the Memorial Day weekend! It was very fresh and clean. We didn't have any problems whatsoever. The mattress on the bed was the best I've ever had in any hotel/motel room. I would highly recommend this motel.

I booked my reservations though Oak Island Accomodations. The process was quick and simple. The girl who took my reservations was very pleasant to deal with and because of that I will be back. The hotel itself is a bit dated. The rooms are very very clean. I saw not a spot of dirt. Room services comes in every day...

The motel was very clean. A close walk to the beach. The room needs improvement. Had difficult time with shower handle. It would come off in your hand, then couldn't put back on. Always afraid it would fall off on feet while showering. The rugs were bad, clean up bad stains and need to be replaced. Bed comfortable. The motel...

We stayed here a couple of weekends ago and was very surprised. The outside of the Island Inn does not look like much but the inside was very clean, the beds were comfortable, all in all we were surprised. We checked out the Captain's Cove and decided not to stay there, rather not say why but the Island Inn was...

The first time we stayed at Island Inn in February we were treated extremely well. The rooms are immaculately cleaned daily. Michelle is absolutely wonderful: caring, personable, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. She runs a quiet, comfortable and safe hotel. Our business trip turned into a relaxing and soothing vacation. We look forward to our next restful vacation at...
