We stayed at the Islander Motel the weekend of Labor Day 2019. We were on the second floor, room 206.
Staff: Very friendly, welcoming and worked with our anticipated late arrival!
Facility: Clean, welcoming. There was a pool, we didn't get to use it on this visit. There are a washer and dryer on-premises. It was $1.50 for a load of clothes. There is a peaceful area to sit on the swings, and a grill to use.
Room: It was clean and roomy. There was a microwave, mini-fridge and coffee maker in the room. The mini-fridge was cold, but there is a note that states that it will take 3 days for a case of sodas to get cold, so you may want to bring drinks down in a cooler and use the mini-fridge to keep things cold.
Balcony: The balcony is on the smaller side and not completely open. They have large sliding plexiglass type windows that open.
Overall: We had a very pleasant stay and currently planning our next trip back!
Originally we planned a 3-night stay, and Laura was great in finding a room perfect for us. But due to not-so-great accommodations in Virginia Beach, we called, and the Islander was able to help us at the last minute to arrive a day early. Ashley was so friendly and willing to help in any way she could. We cannot say enough great things about our stay...from the family feel of the motel, to the nice people we met at the pool, to the extremely clean and comfortable rooms. We also loved how close to the beach we were. This Florida family will definitely be back, and we will also recommend the Islander to our family and friends!
Obviously we love the Islander....it's like coming to our beach home! The staff is as friendly and responsive as ever. Clean, well-maintained...not easy when it's on the ocean. Lovely gardens, wonderful quiet pool. Love to stay just after Labor Day when crowds are gone..convenient location. Good beds, new carpet again this year.Flatscreen TV. Close to Manteo bridge.Close to several great restaurants. Small and charming. Priced well for oceanfront . Hate to leave...cannot wait for next year!
Basic mom and pop motel on the beach on the Southern end of Nags Head. They have a great location and the rates were good. It’s no frills, but was clean. We stayed on the third floor and had a nice view, but I didn’t care for the enclosed balcony.
The a/c worked fine. The room was clean and comfortable. The location and being beachfront was great. It was a bit dated, but that never bothers me if it’s clean and well maintained. We didn’t use the pool, but it looked fine. The staff was friendly. No problems here and I would stay again if in the area.
I'm so glad we came across this gem. I've stayed at a place not far from this motel for literally 3 times the amount (and was no better). This place has beautiful landscape, very clean and nice sized rooms, great view of the ocean, affordable price and a nice pool. Staff was friendly. They don't provide breakfast but that's a quick fix, the Dunes Restaurant is right across the way or bring your own oatmeal and microwave it. The only small complaint if there was one was the balcony. It's quite blocked off so sitting out there with the air conditioner running was hot and smelly. However, from our third floor room, we had an awesome view out of our motel room of the ocean. We'll definitely be back to this great motel!
