A co-worker recommended this motel to my husband and we have never been happier. After not having a vacation as a family for over 6 years, we were desperately in need of one. LBI is my husband's favorite place in the world and while his family had been renting houses on the island for years, we could not afford to do so.
We (me, hubby,4yr old daughter) booked an efficiency suite at the Lorry with two rooms (slept 6) and like all rooms it included a full sized fridge and a microwave. There are gas grills available to all guest in the courtyard as well. The room was spotless and I was impressed to see that they even used mattress covers on their beds- a must in an effort to keep beds clean.
The Lorry Motel is affordable and comfortable. The owner Bill understands what true customer service is all about and while this is a no frills-motel, it is perfect for families with children looking to get away for a while. From the amazing hospitality of the staff (Erica and Steve) to the spacious and clean rooms, we were amazed and just how well this motel worked for us.
Surprisingly, the friendliness of the guest was as memorable as the motel itself. We met many amazing people there and spent most nights chatting in the courtyard with other guests. Bill's friendly personality no doubt sets the tone for the guests. In honor of a guest who made the 30 hour bus ride out to the Island and stayed at the hotel, Bill through a BBQ for all the guests. In addition, unlike most motels, the Lorry offers a continental breakfast that starts at 9 and continues to 11am; Who want's to get up at 7 for bagels? It is this kind of attention to customer satisfaction that will keep us coming back.
