Old but comfortable and quiet
The motel is a bit run down but in a nice quiet area.The room was clean and adequate for our needs, the bed was comfy. There is no parking at the door, however, there is a parking area attached to the motel.

Liked: Staff & service
Although being an old 60's/ 70's motel, the rooms were very comfortable for an overnight stay. In need of updating, but very inexpensive compared to other hotels on the island. Any shortcomings were made up by the friendly stafff. Good old fashioned service. Nothing was too much trouble. Just wish all hotels gave the same service that this one did.

We spent 4 nights at the Island Motel and had a great time using it as our base while we explored the Island. The room was clean and tidy. The beds were very comfortable and the hot water was very hot. We all enjoyed ourselves and will definitely use them again.
