Second stay at the Whale, as we follow the reggae band No Discipline around. Family owned, clean, comfy, and quiet! Its located on the peaceful side of Long Beach Island. There are still pubs, restaurants, beach and plenty more. Price is awesome. Check it out!

This motel is good value for money. It is at the quiet end of the island with walking distance to the lighthouse and beach. The rooms are very small, but clean and only useful to sleep in. There is a pub, hotel and breakfast place all within a 5 minute walk so location, location, location is the strong point. 10... More

One night stay me and husband to go fishing. I can tell that room was just renovated and served its purpose. Everything was very clean and owner was very pleasant when we arrived. We were right near the lighthouse, which is where we fished. There were clean towels, soap, shampoo and flat screen TV. Small room, but very cute.

We stayed in the huge two bedroom upstairs. It was huge, with a full kitchen (which we didn't use) and two bedrooms with comfortable beds. The AC was more than adequate to handle the LBI humidity. The owner was quite friendly. Everything was clean and neat, as if we were the first people to stay there. The only complaint is... More

Thank you for your comments; we corrected the problem you described by replacing the hollow core adjoining door with a solid door. We did this while we were updating and renovating that suite this spring. More

This was a pleasant find. It is small (just enough room for beds & luggage) but clean and affordable and great location. Best choice for the area for a couple nights stay. They even included beach passes. It has a nice back yard with hammocks and a grill. A great place for kids to play and relax. The beds were... More

I am staying at the White Whale now using their free internet This is my first time at the White Whale this season. Since I last stayed here they did plenty of renovations; in particular I like the new 32” flat screen TV’s . The rooms are always clean and it is still the lowest priced choice on the north... More

Room was small, freshly painted and clean. Small frig and microwave and new flat screen tv on the wall above our bed. Too buggy to use hammock in the backyard and yard needs some tlc. Easy walking distance to beach and lighthouse. Cute little diner at the corner where we had breakfast. A very relaxing weekend.

This one was a delight. Operated by a man who seems to love his property and his location. Small motel -- with very small rooms, but includes all the basics and we liked both the motel and the area so much we wanted to extend our stay -- and couldn't because no room available (off-season, too). Fishermen were staying here,... More

I booked the White Whale Motel since we were going to a wedding on Cedar Bonnet Island. The staff was very nice, and were able to answer any questions we had about the local area. The room was just fine,dated but was clean, and for the price on LBI you could not beat it. Also I was very happy that... More

Stayed here three nights with my wife. Just looking for a room to sleep in and shower/change, not a resort or The Ritz-Carlton. The White Whale was all that we needed. Room had a small fridge and microwave which was convenient. The place is old but everything worked. The A/C unit was a bit noisy. Close to a dock for... More
