Reviewed 4 September 2013

This is a very nice place to stay! The room, even though it was by the ice machine and corridor, was relatively quiet throughout the night. The breakfast was good, with cereal, waffle, and bagel choices. I'd stay again! Just maybe in a room away from the ice machine!

Emily at the front desk is one of the friendliest I've met. We had an continual issue with people's children above us being VERY noisy, but they offered to move us, i said no, move the noisy people and they did! What great service! Room is sufficient for a getaway. Beds are comfy and were clean. Breakfast is ok if you love carbs, waffles, bagels and pastry. Would have likes some protein, eggs and sausage or bacon would have been nice. Overall, good value for the price. If you are looking for a flat screen tv, you won't find one here, but at least the remote works!

This was our first time to stay at Island Hotel, and we have found a new favorite. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was attentive and friendly. Breakfast is available until 10:00, so you can still sleep in a bit without missing out . Our bed was amazingly comfortable. Looking forward to coming back.

On a July last minute get away I found the Island Hotel after everywhere else was full with Fishing Tournaments etc...... We were very pleased to find a very clean room with Great and Friendly service that included Breakfast.The room was updated and clean. I later learned the Owners also have the Highly rated Best Western Ocean Villa in Port A. So thats where the learned the Great Service. The rate was reasonable also , a little sand in Pool but other than that it was a Great experiance, with Fresh towels poolside.we usually get a Condo but for a Quick Get A way i recomend it Highly.

Great hotel for the price. It is nice for families. Their game room is a great get away. They have late hours at the pool, which was nice. The rooms are tile floor. I was unsure about it at first, but it is easy to clean. We thought we might bring a broom next time. Oh, & they also have a grill out by the pool. We would definitely stay again. The kids really enjoyed it. With a few upgrades, it really could be one of the best on the island.

Everything was great. The rooms were a little small but then again we had a ton of stuff.
The staff was great too.
Loved the game room for the kids.
Loved the fact that we could bring our dog and there were a lot of dogs.
