Looking for a hotel on IoW

I'm looking for a hotel to stay in for three nights in a few weeks time on the Isle of Wight. I have done some searches on the net, but havn't found anything which really suites. I would prefer somewhere by the coast, about 70 for a double room, and preferably somewhere that doesn't have floral carpets and bed linen! Any recommendations (especially ones with webpages) would be greatly apreciated.
PS. The place needs to be RIB friendly!

I am a student - but it's a common misconseption that all students sleep in the back of thier cars!
I'd rather stay in the East of the Isle.
Tim - thanks for that link, very useful. There even some with plain wall paper!

Tim - is that a poor attempt at a wind-up?!
I didn't need my passport when I visited the Island last month....

Good advice TG - we always make sure we've got ours

Sorry Tim, no idea about East of the island. Good luck and have a great trip.

sorry tim
hope you enjoy your time over here guess your looking for somewhere like Bembridge lovely place although tidal, camp sites will be more accomodating for you and your rib, Island Harbour used to let people camp not sure if they still do has bistro and chandlery but is a tidal locked marina
