      Islander motel is a rip off We wanted to take a trip so we were looking for rooms we found islander motel big mistake when we arrived and paid over $550.00. I went to the room and I thought it was a joke. It was a nightmare, the door was broken and wouldn't lock and you could see the outside and flies where in the room the smell was disgusting and the carpet was badly stained the TV was broken and it was dirty I went to look for the phone, but they didn't have any in the rooms so I went to the office to let them know that the room was disgusting the receptionists said you already paid I then told her that motel needed to be condemned and i wanted a refund she argued with me for a while then she said I can give you a different room that was better I went to check it out this one was a little better in that second room the toilet wouldn't flush and the water was dripping all 3 nights. This was the worst experience ever I hope no one will have to go through this I will never go back they should be CLOSED DOWN PERIOD.

      Our stay was HORRIBLE!!! Room, bathrm., AC were filthy. Beds were questionable. Had to buy cleaning supplies to CLEAN entire area. No WiFi available in rm., had to be near office. No phone, no ice maker. Not even for the price or location... this motel is not suitable for any human.

      Absolutely Nothing run save your money do not choose this hotel you will be sure to get catch something from the state of the room

      Absolutely horrible save your money. We didn't sleep in the room because the state of it. The bed looked like something out of a horror film the mattress was not only dirty but only 4 inches thick. The staff is not around the clock so I had no one to complain to manager said they post and phone number on the door, never saw it. Worst oc motel I have seen...I Would sleep in my car or on the beach before I booked with this hotel again.

      It's nice that you can sit bay side or walk across the street and be at the beach. It's in a good location to be able to walk to Phillips for the buffet and to the Paddock for entertainment. It was quiet and nobody bothered you.

      We usually stay here every time we're at OC. The only thing I'd like to see them do is open up is the Hot Tub - in season the pool is open and nice but a Hot Tub would be great.

      Do not stay here!!! • Rooms are not dirty…they are filthy! • Upon arrival my husband complained about the smell and cleanliness of the room and the fact that bugs were either flying around in the room or had been smashed on the ceiling…. And we were told “Sorry there is nothing we can do!” Seriously???? I wanted to leave and stay at a different hotel, but they would not even refund at least ½ of the money we paid and my husband was not willing to throw $100.00 bucks out the window. • Beds are discussing. The mattress is the thickness of a sofa bed at best thrown on top of a broke down box spring. • No wash clothes were provided…just hand towels that they passed off as bath towels. The shower curtain had mold on it and the tub was dirty…ever taken a shower and even the water felt dirt???? Lol The only good thing is the hotel is located next door to an awesome bar….we just got drunk, crashed and woke up as early as possible to run out of there with the hopes that we did not bring back and infectious disease!

      Bar next door

      Half of the lights did not work. Dresser drawer front was broken off one drawer. Bath tub must have been waxed with surf board wax! No bath mat, or bath grip for IN the tub. We both almost fell before putting down a towel IN the tub. No phone in room! Tv remotes don't turn off/on tv nor control volume. Have to get up to do that. Curtain was not hanging right and broken. Floors/carpets were NOT cleaned when we arrived! People parking in parking spaces, we PAID to stay there. There were people on the front side of the place sliding parking passes to other people staying on the back side of the place so that they could stay there a night or so. And these people DID not pay! And then they had the nerve to complain about no parking???!!!! We will not be staying there again.

      absolutly nothing. This is the worst hotel I have EVER stayed in. It is COMPLETELY filthy and run down. This is the kind of dirt that has been ther for YEARS. The stench of mold and mildew knocked us over when we opened the door. Our clothes and luggage stunk after we got home, and we rode home on a motorcylce. When we went to check in there was no one in attendance. We and several other poeple waited for more than 20 minutes for someone to check us in. Everything was unlocked. We came back to our room during the day to find the door wide open and no one around. The tile floors have never been cleaned. My white socks were black after walking on the them. There is a vent in the bathroom (with no switch to turn it on) that does not have a cover or a fan and has about 10 years of dirt in it. Behind the funiture and under the beds has not been cleaned in years. When I complained to the desk clerk and housekeeper all I got was lame excuses. There is no excuse for this disgusting place. The rate was WAY too expensive. I wouldn't stay there again for free.

      mold, musty smell, beds from 1980, had to clean the room ourselves, no filter in air conditioner - fins cloged with dust causing it not to work very well... will never stay there again !!!

      This was by far the worst motel I,ve ever been in. The room they gave us smelled musky of mildew, the next room they gave us had urine in the toilet , tub wasn't clean, and the microwave still had food in it from previous guests. We couldn't get any sleep because the bed was a piece of foam on a boxspring, you had to use something to stick in the t.v where the power button was supposed to be to turn it on, the door was homemade from 2x6,s and plywood, and the bed wasn't changed the whole time we were there. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone .

      Same as above

      Pretty Gross & Dirty , smelled and is old and outdated. First thing we did was clean the AC filter upon entering the room to cut down on the smell!!!

      This hotel is close to the beach and the best value around. Room was nice with outdoor sitting area and view of the pool.
