It was right on the beach and very clean!

The mattress was way too hard (felt like sleeping on the floor), even though the front desk said they were new (6 months old). We couldn't sleep and ended up only staying one night. We both had back and hip pain the next day. The couch was really old and the swivel chair wasn't much better (both really low to the ground). There was no hand towel rack next to the sink. The bathroom was tiny, barely enough room to shut the door (no sink in the bathroom).

It was an overall great experience, although I had no towels in my room when I first got there. The AC barely got to us a night because it was next to the couch/living area and the bed was on the other side of the wall.

We had a wonderful time! We plan to come again !

The islander was a very pleasant experience. The set up of the double room was perfect for families with small children. We were able to put our son to bed and stay up in the living area. It looks like the hotel is going through significant renovations as well.

The heat didn’t work, there were roaches, and we were moved twice. I do not recommend staying here.

Nice hotel. They said that they would call us when our room was ready, never got a call.

Great,wonderful,beautiful,groovy, fantastic,quiet.

Thank you for your review. I was very disappointed to hear that overall your stay with us failed to meet and exceed your expectations. I greatly appreciate you bringing to my attention some of the issues you encountered. Our pest control provider, Orkin will be coming out to the property to perform pest control services. I asked that our management reach out to see what else we can do and to ensure that there is nothing further you would like to discuss. Again, I sincerely apologize and wish you safe travels in the future. Barry Eagle, Owner
