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.

Beautiful beach with nice beach access and free chairs

Rooms were great, only issue was bathroom needs an upgrade but was clean. Staff was awesome & location is superb!

Clean rooms & loved close access to beach. Check in was quick & receptionists were very friendly & helpful.

Nice location, clean and nice staff.....................

Access to beach is excellent. Parking is good. Atmosphere is friendly. Safe, and clean. Value is very good.

Great location on the beach, however there was NO access to the beach. Also no breakfast provided. Otherwise fairly nice. Wish there was carpet in the room as tile was cold and hard.

Beautiful setting! We had a great stay. We loved the beach access.

Great location, wonderful pool and easy access to beach. We stayed with our two teens in a 2 bed with couch and it worked perfectly for us. Our daughter had the other bed and son used the couch. We had called ahead to see if we could use the parking lot and pool prior to check in and they were happy to do that for us. Turned out our room was ready and they just let us check in. Super friendly staff. Pool area was great.

The room wasn’t cleaned until late in the afternoon and the door was left open during the entire time. With temps in the 90’s, the room was never really cool until around 3 am. Spots all over the carpet and the beds looked like a 6 year old made them. Very disappointed

Decent size space, beds were pretty comfy. However there is only one sink to be shared with the kitchenette and bathroom, this leaves no place for toothbrushes and personal toiletries. The bathroom has absolutely no where to put your clean clothes or anything while you are showering. Very inconvenient when it's more than one person in the room. The air works great when it's cool out, but when it reached 95 the air couldn't keep up , it was so gross at night we had to request fans to stay somewhat cool. We were then told this is a daily issue there. Pool was never opened all 4 days and you were lucky to get a pool towel. We did like the beachfront location. More than likely would not stay again.

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
