Stayed here for a weekend 17th-19th August 2012 - the hotel was so dark and old fashioned inside, which wasn't really an issue as I wasn't staying in the hallway...but the room was no better, the bedding was so thin and worn, the blanket was ripped and the king bed was only just off the floor it reached up to the middle of my shin and was well worn and needs to be replaced - not really worth the almost $200 for the two nights.
Nicely located for the beach and the small plaza just down the road with good restaurants, but the hotel itself is in need of an upgrade. The 3rd floor was so hot in the corridor and the aircon was switched off, the air con in the room was intermittent and during the night "misfired" woke me up with the smell of overheating and burning but then carried on working.
The smell of curry on the ground floor and around the reception area was very overpowering and not pleasant at all.
Booking the hotel was an odd process with a variety of web sites taking a booking and forwarding it to the hotel, I guess the hotel does not have a direct booking system but each web site had a different price for the same stay...just seemed so dodgy and dishonest to start with using this system.
For half the price there is a Super8 less than a mile away and the Comfort Inn opposite the Island Inn in better condition also can do the same booking for less than the 197.00 I paid. Don't think I would stay here again based on the cost and the outdated decor - Sorry but not good value for money at all
