“Probably the best economy hotel on LBI”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Simple, small, but clean and not as dated as other places on LBI. Has a pool, but we didn't use it. Right across the street from a nice, quieter beach as its near the southern tip of the island. Only problem we had was when the shower broke, it took them a looooonnnnngggg time to get the plumber there. (2 hours). It wouldn't have been so bad, except that we were dirty from the beach and hungry for dinner.

Room Tip: I'd suggest getting a room on the second floor with two beds. That way you can sit outside and...

First week in June is apparently the best time to visit Long Beach Island. Beautiful "summer" weather, miles of beach front for strolling, clean warmish water for swimming. This cozy little motel was right on the waterfront, with beautiful views from the 3rd floor looking over the top of the dunes at the sparkling water. The rooms were clean, with a nice size refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker, in addition to the other usual amenities. A decent size pool with jacuzzi was a bonus, with a restaurant and bar to boot. Between the hotel and the ocean is a Key West like bar with all the makings. Families, couples, singles will enjoy the entire package just steps away from the beach. Long Beach Island offers everything seashore - restaurants, stores, deli's, massage/nails, bars/clubs, bike/surfboard rentals. Park the car and rarely drive it again for the week. The staff at the motel were helpful, friendly and responsive. I stayed for a weekend wedding on the beach blocks away from the motel. It was a magnificent time!

Room Tip: 3rd floor can see the ocean over the sand dunes - if you choose an ocean facing room - shoot for the...

We normally stay at a house rental, but decided to get away for a couple of days. This place was perfect for the family. It was very clean, location was great, and the pool was super. We had no problems with any of the quiet time, even when my husband and i sat outside playing cards waiting for the kids to get to bed. Next time i plan on using the outside grills.

What a wonderful stay. This place is 1 step away from the beach and the pool. Clean and friendly...bring kids or enjoy with a special someone. It is a place where you park your car, grill on spotless grills and enjoy the seaside experience.

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Was not expecting much from an older motel, but they maintain the property well. Rooms were clean and reasonably well appointed, although dated. Very close to the beach. Not a luxury resort by any stretch, but a very comfortable family motel. Better than other similar style motels on the jersey shore, both in terms of cleanliness and location.

The cleanest of the half dozen motels we have stayed at on LBI. The room costs are comparatively low. They have an excellent web site showing all the rooms and the costs for different times of year. We will stay there again.

1st year staying at the sea spray- Sunday thru Wednesday.. The place is ABSOLUTELY SPOTLESS. Great location, across the street from the beach. Beautiful inground pool. Staff, including Harry went out of their way to help with any request. Very quiet, family style motel- if you are looking for a wild drunken crowd, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE! The quiet part of LBI a quick drive puts you where the crowds are. Definitely going to stay next year. Can't stress enough how clean the place is! To the other reviewers: YES ! the towels are small- GET OVER IT !
