This is a great value for the price. We stayed in a suite and were surprised at the size of the rooms. More like an apartment. Very clean and comfortable. Will stay again next time we are in the area.

Our family had a fabulous time. This hotel is so cute, clean and comfortable! We had two rooms on the end- adjoining and one with a kitchenette. It met all of our family's needs. We could even bring our dog! We will definitely come again! If there was one concern, it would be that the walls were thin. The middle...

The staff at The Island Hotel was knowledgable, friendly and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and larger than we expected. Unfortunately the walls are quite thin and we had party girls as neighbors. (It wasn't even spring break time!) The location worked well for us. The breakfast was very basic, but as advertised. For the price we paid it...

Friendly informative staff from the moment we got there til we checked out. The room was the nicest hotel for this price point we have stayed at. Closely located to the beach, restaurants located minutes away, and could hear the sound of the beach from your hotel door. Size of room was bigger than expected.

Paper thin walls. It's after midnight and NOISY! I know it's spring break but seriously? The tv cuts out constantly. It's a motel not a hotel. Shocked that reviews were good for this place. Old, dingy and cheap everything! Price did not reflect value. Room should have been $69 not $245! Rip off.

We wanted a quick get away and Island Hotel filled all of our requirements. It is well located to the beach and many restaurants, clean and pleasant, and the staff the staff was was friendly and aimed to please. There is a game room, pool and laundry room making it well suited to families as well as singles or couples....

We needed a last minute room and this place was great. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was an excellent value. We got a room just for the night. It was quiet and clean. I only wish I had woken up early enough for the continental breakfast. I plan on going back as soon as possible.

This was a nice surprise after staying in some of the well known named hotels. It was very clean and extremely friendly. The staff was great and the property very well maintained. It was very economical and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was centrally located, close to the beach and the downtown area.
