        Shelled, took photos, swam, shopped and toured.

        The hotel was next to beach, we had a big and clean room with a kitchen corner and several restaurants could be reached by car within a few minutes.

        The breakfast could have been better. They had coffee, orange juice, joghurt, cornflakes and muffins, but we were missing some toast or bagels.

        I mentioned that my husband was having a birthday during our stay and we were delighted to find a chilled bottle of champagne and 2 flutes in our room! We also loved the room.

        Unfortunately the bed was way too hard for me.

        I loved the slightly rustic feel. The location is awesome, the staff is friendly, and the room is super spacious.

        The pool was definitely not kid friendly. The breakfast was disappointing.

        Location, facilities, comfort. Staff was friendly and helpful

        The location

        The rooms are a little tired and there was no choice of beds - we had two doubles not the one king size we wanted. The restaurant was ok but not as good as it thinks it is.

        Appreciated beach front with no charge for parking. Appreciated the new furnishings in the very old motel-like building.

        Parking area very bumpy.

        We were there to attend a wedding. The reception food in your dining room was excellent.

        Our room had a musty smell & the carpet was badly stained. Bathroom walls & tub need updating.

        The restaurant on-site was excellent with a very welcoming staff. The desk staff members were helpful and efficient.

        The location. It was very quiet. The rooms were spacious.However, the room needed updating. The carpet was stained and dirty.The kitchen area cabinets needed to be replaced. The bathroom fixtures were corroded.The faucets were leaking. Other than these few things we enjoyed our stay. The beach was okay, the outdoor area was well kept.

        Linens were clean. Excellent beach front location in a private area and quiet area.

        Our room was called a kitchenette. Only thing different from it and a regular hotel room was the addition of a microwave. We never ate at the exclusive dinning room because the "free" breakfast was awful. They served spoiled pineapple four days in a row! Come on! This is a remodeled barracks building. Concrete everything made noises all night long and the steel doors kept us awake. Staff was a plus/minus. Some housekeepers never spoke. Ok, maybe they don't speak English but in 5 minutes you can teach them to say "good morning." But some staff did say hello. Some check-in staff were polite and some were recruited from from a pool of old mean schoolmarmes. I would never stay here again and I would never recommend it to someone unless I hated them. This wasn't really a good value for the money. The one benefit was the beautiful location. I asked the desk staff about activities and they pointed to flyer on the wall. Not exactly a very welcoming orientation.

        Our stay at the Island Inn was really great. The location on the Gulf of Mexico, the "feeling" of old Florida without all the hype, the pleasant and helpful staff, all this made for a wonderful stay at the island Inn. We will be back.

      • Older travelers

        We were in a room overlooking the ocean. Hotel has plenty of character so it's not the same as everywhere else you might stay. Traditions restaurant is fantastic but we were lucky as it was a very quiet week.

        Minor matter was a lack of a room safe. Breakfast was eggs, yoghurt and pastries - an odd combination. Could have done with cereal too.
