Not impressed

Everything felt old with a new coat of paint. The "bar" was an extension of the front desk. Other than all of the beautiful cars parked in front of the hotel, I didn't see much luxury.

Next Best thing to the Ritz

A 5-star hotel for a 3-4 star price! This place rivals any Ritz Carlton, Langham, or Four Seasons Ive stayed at. Very easy and smooth check in and out, no bumps to take away from the pleasant experience. the room is extremely clean with marble counters and egyptian cotton linens. There was an event going on out by the pool, so there was slight noise until about 1-2 am but we just cranked up the AC Fan and couldnt hear a thing! also very nice sheer curtains as well as black out curtains. Definitely feel like youre on a luxury vacation.

Beach Stay

Everything was great, it was clean, amazing location, good deal. The only issue I had was that they would not let me self-park (unless is was off hotel property!) and each day they charge you a valet fee which was never explained so basically I got dinged with an extra $100 at check out!

Wonderful Hotel.

Everything was great, except there was no mention that the hotel was under construction, with a new office building being constructed. And that the workers would start jack hammering at 7am. Otherwise a great deal.

Whole Foods is around the corner and so are movie theaters. Instead of room service and a movie...go outside a walk a block.

My weekend stay at Island Hotel

Very nice rooms, but they had no coffee - you have to walk down to the lobby to get coffee or order room service coffee. There is a daily charge for accessing internet and the service is difficult to navigate and get online. The pool has a wonderful fireplace by it, but the pool is by some kind of huge industrial air conditioning unit so the pool area is so noisy it's like being on the runway at the airport - not relaxing. Otherwise, good service, great place.

Great Getaway

The Island Hotel was wonderful. The bed was like sleeping between two clouds and we are planning to install a shower just like it. Yes, the shower drained slow. We knew from reading reviews before leaving that we had to pay to park the car--$32 each night. Knowing this, we did not tip the valet parkers. Breakfast in the dining room was good and I have to say it was served beautifully and the coffee was delicious and hot. I recommend The Island and would definitely stay there again.

Try Amelia's on Balboa Island for a good meal. Definitely take a spin to Balboa Island, its such a contrast from the rest of the area. Very friendly people on Balboa.
