nice motel
The Islander Motel is a small 2 story older motel that has been well cared for. The room was clean, and TV, microwave, and refrigerator were in working order. Plenty of clean towels and extra pillows. Desk staff friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast available with cold cereals, toast, OJ, and coffee. Close to downtown eating and entertainment area. Short drive to boardwalk. We would stay there again.

Last Minute Booking..
Last minute booking.. Honestly, the rate was too high for non-friendly customer service. Found items of previous visits in the room. It was the only option.

Convenient and inexpensive
Convenient location and reasonable price for what I needed. Easy walking access to Wholefoods and restaurants. Close enough to the beach (less than 2 miles) and right near the highway for easy access early in the morning. It was fairly quiet for being right on the main road.
