“great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We normally rent a house for a week, but since we are taking a vacation in a few months, we decided to go with a motel for a few nights. After doing lots of research, I decided on the Haven Beach Motel. It was exactly what we were looking for. Spacious, clean rooms, free wi-fi, clean, beautiful, heated pool right on the bay, only a block and a half from the beach, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, beach badges. There's really no way I would improve on this stay. We decided to stay an extra night and the management did his best to keep us in the same room. We are definitely planning on returning!

I would recommend this motel to anyone who has been to the Island before. You have to first know that LBI is not your typical "Jersey Shore" community. This is NO Seaside Heights or Wildwood party town. If you have been to LBI before, and understand that most people typically stay in rental houses, it is a family kind of place, and there are NO hotels, and just a handful of dated motels, you will be satisfied with your stay at Haven Beach.
PROS
-Fantastic location: at a narrower part of the island, on the bay, 1.5 blocks to beach
-Big, Clean Room
-Beach Badges, Outside Shower, Pool, Grill, Big Fridge in room, Picnic Tables
-Nightly stays available (SO hard to find on LBI) Great Price
-Wireless!
CONS
-Bathroom! Now we knew this would be an older motel and expected it to show a bit of wear but come on! The bathroom was bordeline offensive (room 2). A new faucet and tube of caulk do not cost THAT much. I have a bath in my older home much the same style, and small things can be done to maintain the charm of the tile bath. AT LEAST caulk the tub so you are not staring at old moldy crap. An inexpensive faucet to replace the rusty, nasty stuff would go a LONG way.
-Hard beds.
-No 24 hr. management. I'm fairly sure there is a way to reach management while they are off premises but what a bother. Our upstairs neighbors were outrageously loud at night and fought horribly day & night but I wasn't about to interfere in their family drama for the sake of my family's comfort, (karma) but this is a manager's job. During the day we were mostly gone, but we did consider calling management at night a few times. The whole thing was uncomfortable.
-It would be a plus to have any local info in the rooms for people without cell phones to find food & activities (or even a way to reach management posted IN the room.)
Other than the miserable family we got stuck under (which was simply bad luck,) and the bathroom issues, we liked the Motel. If they cleaned up the bathrooms, I would highly recommend it. It is a great place if you need a few days of relaxation on LBI.
**There is a great little place across the street (Jersey Girl) with awesome coffee, great food & service.

We've always loved LBI, but the cost to rent homes has really climbed, and with kids it's better to have a pool available, which you don't get with most home rentals. So we decided this year to rent a hotel room for our visit. The hotel location was great - directly on the Bay, where the kids could fish & crab. We were one and a half blocks from the beach, which is lifeguarded. There were two restaurants across the street - Jersey Girls is a casual bagel and sandwich place. We had breakfast and lunch there most days. The Acme supermarket is less than a mile north, and the Bay Avenue shops & Waterpark was about a mile south. The room was very clean, except that the bathroom was small and a little outdated. The management was super! I arrived early, but was still able to check in. And most of all, the price is right. You can spend more for fancy bathrooms at other places, but if you want a simple place to sleep while you enjoy all the amenities and fun that LBI offers, this is the place for you. I will definitely stay here again.

Delightful stay at this well cared for bay side motel. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff is charming and welcoming. Even my teens commented about how nice the housekeeper made up the room. The location is perfect for sunsets; a short walk to the beach and shops and restaurants within steps of the property. Look forward to visiting with Bill and Dennis again and recommend this motel over others in the area...

The staff of this hotel is very nice and accommodating, but unfortunately, the hotel needs a lot of TLC. It seems as though they were spared during the hurricane as the property looks the same. That is good news, but the hotel needs updating. Our shower head was old and rusty and the bathtub was gross with stains and rust that a good scrubbing might have taken care of. The drapes are ripped and need to be replaced. The clientele seemed to be different this year as well. Perhaps people shut out of Seaside Heights decided to stay there. The view is spectacular and it is convenient to the beach. The pool was nice and clean as well. We have stayed there three years now, but I am not sure we would go back again unless there was some updating done to this motel.

When ever John and I go to LBI we stay with Bill and Dennis at the Haven Beach Motel. Rooms always clean and well stocked. Staff is very friendly. Pool is always wonderful and clean. We can bar-b-que if we want. We can just sit and watch the beautiful sunset. With all the rooms full it is still quite quiet and peaceful. I would not recommend anywhere else. Stay here you are treated like family.

Room Tip: Every room is great.
