“Nice place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

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 strange that we couldn't get a confirmation sent by e-mail. They sent in snail mail.
Check-in & check-out: fast, friendly, efficient
Cleaning: Was alright. However, the housekeepers seemed very unprofessional. One boy blurted out that he didn't want to work.. (We thought they might be children of the owners)
Value for money: We went in the high season, and it seemed a little pricy for accommodation without breakfast.

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 The rooms are clean but old and outdated.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 a room...but we can't complain. The office staff is beyond sweet. I really feel you pay for where you are, its right in middle of island and close to everything. Outdoor pool was a bonus since it was overcast and not a beach day. We enjoyed the roof top view before retiring to bed.

Room Tip: take a regular room for the price you don't plan on staying longer than a day or two

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 pool, clean and set to the back of the grounds, away from the Blvd and with views of the bay. Great views of the sunset available on the Bay. They offer docks, if you wanted to boat in and fish. We fished right from the grounds. They offer BBQ available for your own grilling, patio tables and chairs for afternoon lunches or dinner with a sunset view. Rooftop decks also available. Outdoor shower for after the beach, free (with credit card deposit) Beach Badges. We got the basic room, 2 full size beds, small fridge for juice boxes and beers, and microwave and coffee maker. Allowed for early check in. AND BEST PART OF THE TRIP. My daughter lost her earring. I left a note for the housekeeping staff and mentioned it to the front desk, as we checked out. And they said if they located it, they would mail it back to us. AND THEY DID! We just got the eating back. WHAT GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE! My daughter is so excited to have gotten her earring back. THANKS JOHN AND STAFF at the BUCCANEER!!

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 the ocean and the bay simultaneously. While you do have to cross one busy street to get to the ocean, it was only a 5 minute walk, as was the excellent Dockside Diner mentioned in another review. If you are going for the ocean experience and not expecting to hang out much in your hotel room, this is an excellent choice. We are planning on coming back this summer, this time with my parents, to stay in one of the Bay Front Suites.

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!

we enjoyed our stay at the hotel until i realized i was missing some of my possesions. the only people in my room besides my family were the housekeepers. when i went to the manager he said "these are kids that work here what can i do". he said he would look into it and get back to me, needless to say i have not heard from them. so if you want to stay at a place where stealing items from the guests is condoned enjoy. my family and i will not be going back

There was no proof that any one of our employees took anything from this person's room. It was an isolated incident.
