Positive Reviews

Coastal Dwelling.

Those reserving their stay with The Islander enjoy placement alongside the coast, serving as an ideal location to reap the benefits of the outstretching sea and surrounding activity. The local boardwalk—regularly holding activities, festivals, and merchants—is only a three-minute walk from this beachfront motel, holding something in-store for the entire party. For additional convenience, boat docks are available for rent on-site.

Entertainment Abundance.

Not only does this family-run motel place residents alongside the serene and tranquil delights of the sea, but the downtown area of Ocean City sprawls about in all directions. Concert venues, recreation areas, and historic sites are located within walking distance of the property, harnessing appeal for all preferences and tastes. A bus stop is positioned on the street adjacent from the entrance of The Islander, ensuring travels to neighboring cities and destinations are light and hassle-free.

Delectable Dining.

As this contemporary motel is nestled fondly between the coast and city center, a multiplicity of dining establishments abound in abundance. The seafood is especially frequented, as most restaurants source their produce from local fisheries and suppliers.

Negative Reviews

Aging Decor.

Previous residents of The Islander have borne wild discontent over the aging conditions which are contained within the rooms and residents' facilities. Shredded drapes, broken light fixtures, and unstable furniture are a few grievances reported among the lot. Torn carpets and inoperable televisions have also elicited malcontent.

Dirt Dwells Within.

Accompanying those issues with the aged and crippled condition of the motel, prior inhabitants have also voiced their discontent over The Islander's standard of cleanliness, as poorly vacuumed carpets, stained bedding, and dust accumulation are said to persist throughout many of the bedrooms.

Poor Water Heating.

The water heating capacity of the en-suite bathing facilities are notably poor, as well, taking on average five minutes before heating to a comfortable temperature.
