“Islander Inn was what we were looking for..”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We booked the Islander Inn on short notice and had a wonderful time. Had an ocean view room with a balcony. It had a frig and microwave, we always carry popcorn on all our trips. The staff were very caring and the hotel was very clean. It had an outdoor pool, which they were getting ready for the summer season and indoor pool, which we did not use but many kids and adults were having fun. It also had a hot tub inside the indoor pool area. A large outdoor gazebo which we did use every afternoon, for sitting and enjoying the warm weather and watching people enjoy the beach. We only stayed four nights but wished we could stay longer. It was a very relaxing trip. Oh, and did I mention the great breakfast included with a sweet gal taking care of all the breakfast assortments. Thank you Islander Inn, we will return soon.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 1st floor, room 6103, with an ocean view. It did have an elevator for us who are se...

The rates were reasonable, the room was clean, and the staff was very friendly. Our oceanfront room was a beautiful view and the beach had easy access. The hotel was within an easy walk to the "circle" so we could walk to local restaurants and coffee/ice cream shop. The only drawback is that the walls were very thin. In April, no big deal, but I can imagine during the season (with heavy crowds) it would be quiet noisy. I would recommended The Islander Inn to my friends and will visit again!

My husband and I found this place online after hearing about great seafood in calabash. This place is amazing! On our way back from Florida, one night, we'll definitely come back for more. Beautiful beach, great service.

I don't know how Ocean Isle is in the summer, but in March, it's like you've been given your very own place in the sun. Yes, it was a little chilly, but the sheer beauty of the place prompted us to ask to stay an extra day at The Islander Inn. That was no problem. There was no fighting over the waffle-maker in the breakfast room, and there were enough goodies there to last until dinner at Calabash, NC, just 9 miles south, and a mecca for all seafood lovers. It was great to be out of the traffic of Myrtle Beach, and the view from our balcony was breathtaking. Would visit again in a skinny minute!!

Room Tip: The elevators are in Bldg. #2, if you have trouble with climbing steps you can see through.

Just stayed for two nights and was very impressed. It was quiet, clean, and couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay on Ocean Isle. The pools and spa were nice and just a few steps from the beach. Was family friendly and still very quiet. Will definitely be back soon!

We stayed at the Islander Inn in the summer of 2011. It had some of the nicest most helpful staff you could ask for. The rooms were nice, roomy, and very clean. The bathrooms were small, but were clean. We had oceanfront rooms with a balcony, the beach was only a few steps away. The pools were excellent and my girls really enjoyed the tiki hut. All in all we loved it and are planning our 2nd trip this summer.
