Walkable to beach and fun things on the main drag but rooms are small, tiny bathrooms and paint is peeling. Everyone was nice but I wouldn't pay the price again.

With over 70% of our rooms over 600 square feet, most are spacious to the extreme. Yes, many of the bathrooms are small, this is a Victorian after all, but the good news is that all rooms have private baths, with the added convenience of additional outside showers. With a facelift in progress, expect all rooms to shine and peeling... More

Took a couple days to unwind down at the Jersey shore. I was looking for someplace where I could walk to the beach and to some bars & restaurants. The Windward ended up being a great place to stay. Not only are you a block from the beach but you're a 5 minute walk to some restaurants & most importantly,... More

We had such a great experience at the Windward. My family and I were in Beach Haven from Wednesday-Sunday. We were one (small) block off of the beach. We were in walking distance to Fantasy Island and we went with the kids often. They provided daily cleaning service and they provided linens & towels. Kitchen was stocked with bowls, plates... More

We've been traveling to LBI for over 15 years and this was our first time staying at the Windward. It is an excellent choice for families. The kids area is perfect; coffee is available, the rooms and common areas are spotless. Tammie was a pleasure to meet, very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in room 3, which was just perfect...

We visited over Labor Day and liked the atmosphere at the Windward a lot; it's also well positioned near the beach and a short walk into town. The overall facility is in need of sprucing up. I understand that this is new management, and things take time, but the overall feel of the place is sort of 80s furniture with... More

We hear ya.. and we obey. Common areas have been upgraded including wrap around porch & outdoor patios. We are upgrading one room at a time. On the calendar #3, #1, #4, #5... more to come. And yes, there will be coffee in the lobby, with special treats at random times during the day.Why should breakfast get all the attention?... More

We have stayed in hotels the last two years and were staying at an ocean front suite and wanted to extend our stay for the nice weather that finally appeared. My family and I were fortunate enough to discover the Winward. We enjoyed it a lot more then our ocean front suite and found it to be the ideal place... More

We love the new look and feel that innkeepers Tammie and Chris have created. We stayed here years ago when Tammie's parents, Fred and Jean ran this beautiful and historic inn and the second generation has learned well from them!! Just steps (literally) from the beach and across the street from a park, this location could not be better. My... More

Since new management has been in place, the rooms are exceptionally clean. Windward at the Beach is definately a place where we will stay again, steps from the beach as well as many local attractions and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful in guiding us throughout the town. Wonderful Trip!!
