The Islander Inn is a very nice vacation hotel. It is on the beach with a walkway from the hotel. It appears to have been refurbished and done very well. They offer breakfast; there is an indoor and outdoor pool. The rooms have mini fridge and micro-wave. There are 7 elevated buildings connected with a walkway and one of the...

Room was clean and nice, beds were comfy. Easy access to the beach, and I was very happy with the breakfast items offered. The inside pool and hot tub was very nice, and there was a microwave and refrigerator in the room. I will absolutely stay here the next time I'm in town.

I have been coming to the Islander with my dog several times over the past few years. It's reasonably priced, clean and the staff is nice. The rooms in the dog friendly building have been improved with new laminate flooring and a wide screen TV. The walls are pretty thin so it can be noisy if the hotel is crowded....

Came here to getaway for Thanksgivings. Got an oceanfront room and it was truly ocean front. Of all the oceanfronts I have stayed in this one literally puts you right on top of the ocean. Sitting on the balcony gave the best view ever. The atmosphere was laid back and relaxing the whole time. It was a very family friendly...

We just moved to NC from the Midwest and decided to take advantage of the reasonable off-season rates to take our first trip to the beach. Staff was welcoming and even allowed us to check in a couple hours early. The room was clean and comfortable and had a fantastic view of the ocean. Nothing was over the top or...

We booked our stay through priceline.com, when we arrived we were given a room with a view of the marsh, when I ask about a room with a balcony they said if that's what we wanted we should have booked straight through them! This was during the OFF SEASON, plenty of parking and rooms available & we got put on...

We arrived in NC in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. Unfortunately, we had a beach house rented at Holden and that island was closed to visitors. We were able to book a room at the Islander. Even though they were in recovery mode themselves, they were great to deal with. The room was clean and spacious. The Islander was very...

Our family has been vacationing on Ocean Isle Beach for years ....16 years to be exact. We usually make 4 or 5 trips to the island each year. We usually stay at one of the other hotels on the island. However, this trip was a impromptu trip and our regular hotel could not accommodate us for the days we would...

My girlfriend and I stayed here on our vacation to OIB. We had a room with an ocean view, which was magnificent. We had a mini refrigerator, couch, king bed. The only problem, and it was partly my fault since I didn't read the paper the lady at the check in desk handed me, was we didn't know they served...

We have stayed at the Islander Inn a few times now - they are pet friendly with clean rooms. The breakfast is standard hotel fare. The outdoor pool and gazebo is ocean front with a great view. The heater for the indoor pool was broken when we were there this time, but we don't use it anyway. I would recommend...
