This was my family's first time staying at the Buccaneer Motel. We have stayed at the Engleside and love it, but it was booked the weekend we wanted to stay. We usually book last minute and had forgotten that it was spring break. So we found the Buccaneer. It's a great location and close to everything. The rooms are huge... More

I stayed at this hotel and loved every minute of it! It is family owned and operated and sits directly on the bay. The views are beautiful and the rooms are huge and clean. They have nice size refrigorators and there is also many gas grills for cooking. Its a great location, close to shopping and a block from the... More

Rooms are dated and dirty. TVs were horrible. Have three small children and didn't feel comfortable having them sleep in the beds after finding pubic hairs left in bathroom. "Clean towels" left on top of toilet. Bottom of garbage can was dirty and sticky. Pool was nice but we left shortly after checking in and received no refund. Owner was... More

I stayed at the motel with a group of friends for a prolonged weekend. We primarily went for surfing which was easy accessible. Across from the motel you can rent boards, and the beach is a 5 minutes walk away. The rooms were big and equipped with sufficient supplies. The porch is perfect for hanging out. Reservation: it was really... More

It was a last minute call to see if they had any rooms for the night. During the peak season it is a two night stay...so I was happy we could stay on the island for the night. The rooms are clean but old and outdated. We stayed in the bayside suite for the price I would of just done... More

Last minute trip planned to LBI. Called a couple other motels, none had any vacancies. Called John at The Buccaneer. He was very helpful with prices for our stay, offered a discount. Located right in the middle of LBI, close drive to Fantasy Island and restaurants. Across the street from Spray City Bagels, and bike rental place. Nice size outdoor... More

We go to LBI every year. This motels location is wonderful. A short walk to the beach, amusement park and food. Pool is clean. And people are friendly. We use to go to Cape May. But due to financial issues this place meets all our needs at a great price!

My husband, two children, and I had a very pleasant stay here two summers ago. While the room was a little dated, it was clean, and the location was very convenient. We were disappointed to discover that the indoor pool was closed for the summer, but the outdoor pool was nice, if small. The roof offered a view of both... More

Stay somewhere else! The manager and his wife are the rudest people I've come across in a long time. The bayside view is very nice but these folks are not honest, their rooms smell awful, the TV sets are fuzzy, and they search for wrongdoing. There are other options on the island, stay elsewhere!
