My husband and 2 young sons stayed at The Spray Beach Inn The 1st weekend in Sept. 2014. This was our 3rd time there and we have enjoyed it every time. The rooms however somewhat dated are clean. The hotel being right on the beach is more than anyone can ask for and the price is right too! We love... More

Stayed one SAT night: very friendly staff, greeted our party at 0230 with a smile. Comfy (small) room with quaint (outdated) decor, but the shower was hot and the room heater worked! Thin walls; easy to hear the wind and the neighbors. But the bottom line, it was steps from the beach, nice neighborhood, and easy parking. We went in... More

My husband and I decided to get away to the shore for our 15th anniversary together. This was a spontaneous decision and trying to find accommodations at the last minute proved challenging. I liked the reviews on the Spray Beach Inn and decided book an overnight stay for Saturday night. We had a first floor room but even with the... More

Currently staying in Room 206 which is an Oceanfront room. There is a third floor above which would be great but I can say the 2nd floor does give great views. Check in was fast and easy. When entering the room, there was a fresh smell of clean. As a person that travels often, I did my usual safety/quality check... More

It's nice being on the beach. Our room was super clean and updated, though a little small. I really like having an outdoor bar and dining area. Great breakfasts and good service. My only complaint is, both mornings of our stay, departing guests rolling their luggage along the decks, which is very noisy.

I would give 3 1/2 stars, to me more exact. Fantastic location right on the beach, with a nice outdoor restaurant and bar. We had breakfast there every morning. There's a shallow pool and hot tub. The whole hotel staff was pleasant. Our room was clean. Sure it's an older motel. Sure the beds are uncomfortable. But you could do... More

Booked a super last minute getaway with my wife to meet up with some friends. The hotel is located directly on the beach and they provide badges at the front desk. Cute little bar/restaurant for dining beach side. Walkable to ice cream shops, restaurant and even a WAWA (my fav). Room had a small fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Cosy... More

Wow, a lot of vitriol in recent reviews of the Spray Beach Inn. I really enjoyed my recent stay and here is why: 1) the location may be the best of any hotel on LBI - right on the beach AND right in a quiet residential neighborhood. 2) the on-premise bar and restaurant allowed me to stay on property when...

LOCATION is everything. Seconds from the beach, the hotel is good. BUT we not only paid $315 for the standard 2 double beds room, but also were charged TAX and another TAX. So, it was about $700 for 2 nights. Yes, we had a great weekend due to the WEATHER and the LOCATION of the hotel. The staff was almost... More

The place just needs a makeover. Then they could justify charging the amount they do. And they need more bar tenders outside. Particularly ones who don't ignore me when I walk up to the bar. Their parking situation isn't much better. Plan to park and rent a bike to get around or you won't be able to park anywhere around... More
