It was ok! Room was clean and comfortable! Parking and access to the rooms is not the best, if it were busy it would be a real mess. It was said it was a private beach but every time I tried to go fishing there were so many locals parked on the street end and on the beach fishing I... More

I've stayed at this motel many times. If you're looking for a 4 star motel, this isn't the one. However, consider these points: 1. This motel is right on the beach - a few steps to a private beach with an unobstructed view of Island Beach State Park. 2. This motel is clean. You never get the usual damp and... More

My husband (Mike) & I (Barbara) have traveled from North Jersey to stay at this motor lodge for many years. We enjoy the beach, atmosphere and staff here. As a matter of fact, there is one person that always makes my day when we get there. Her name is Dawn she is the receptionist at the motel. She is a... More

We LOVE Island Beach Motor Lodge. Island Beach State Park is our favorite stop along the Jersey Shore so this Lodge is perfectly located for us. The penthouse and oceanview rooms are the best by far. Who wouldn't want to wake up hearing and seeing the ocean? : ) Of coures Atlantic Bar and Grill is one of our all... More

I have to say, they only had 1 room left when we wanted to stay, so I expected the worst! If our room was their worst, then their best must be out of this world! Our room was very clean, everything worked, it smelled nice, and the bathroom was all in great working order. We are staying again, in the... More

This was our first time at "IBML" and our family of six enjoyed it so much that we booked a room for next year when it was time for us to check out. Dawn (receptionist) was so welcoming and helpful with all our needs, as were the rest of the motel staff. The rooms are very clean and the private,... More

I am so happy to write this review. I booked this hotel for myself and my 2 kids and a friend from HS with her son and we were so happy with it. The people on the phone when I booked were very nice and when my friend arrived before check in they allowed her to leave her belongings in... More

We went to Chincoteague Va this year, rented a beautiful house, and missed IBML every day. We missed the location of the beach, the staff, and just the "at the beach" feel. We missed the fishing end (which was basically shut down due to bird reproduction) and the locals were extremely rude, which was so unlike the friendly seaside park... More

We stay here any time we want to spend a weekend at the shore. It is right next to Island Beach State Park, has its own private beach, large, clean rooms, efficiency room available and wonderful workers/owners. Plus it is next to the best restaurant at the shore, Atlantic Bar and Grill.

I have been staying at this hotel every summer for the past 15 years and it never disappoints. This hotel is exactly what you expect at the Jersey shore. It is clean, reasonable and right on the ocean. You are only steps away from a beautiful, private sandy beach. The people who run the hotel are friendly and helpful. It... More
