In the middle of the beach strip along Ocean Drive, The Islander Inn is directly across the street from Humiston Beach Park and surrounded by shops and restaurants. Somewhat on the retro side, its 16 colorfully decorated rooms and efficiencies contain all the conveniences, nonetheless. The efficiencies boast complete kitchen facilities and private decks. In the rooms, you will find a microwave and mini-fridge.

I will not stay at this hotel again. The lady in charge is completely rude and very inconsiderate. She respects no boundaries whatsoever. The entire time I was there, she barged into my room with myself, my 1 year old daughter and our family and friends. She would walk into the room completely unannounced and tell us we couldn’t have our AC at the temperature we wanted, adjust our lights and fans and AC without permission. She was not very friendly and gave us no privacy at all whatsoever. If you don’t enjoy someone breaking into your room at any time of the day and messing with your personal possessions, I would not suggest staying at this place.
Overall, the experience was good. The motel is located just a short walk from the beach, which was great! There was a pool and complementary coffee too. The rooms were clean.
The only negative was that the AC was not working well in my room. It was fine at night, but there was no insulation in the roof (it seems), so it was baking hot during the day. Luckily, I didn't plan on staying inside on my vacation.
