“Clean and right on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

Stayed one night for a wedding close by. Room was clean and convenient to everything we needed. Did not have an ocean view but we were close enough to walk on the beach. A little pricey but that may be because of the convenience to the ocean. Would definitely recommend and stay there again.

Stayed May 2014, traveled with family

Came for a weekend with friends, spent a fortune, would say it was okay. Doubt if I would hit the Restaurant again, very basic fare, and again, okay but very pricey. Better off at the poolside bar. We know folks need to pay a bit more to stay at the shore, but I'd say this was too much for what you get.

Spent another week at the Engleside Inn with our dogs, Kayla and Sam. The weather wasn't the best but we were away from home and with our dogs. Each spring and fall we spend a week at the Engleside Inn and everyone is so friendly. We had room service from the restaurant and the steaks for superb! The town was pretty much closed during the week but there were a few shops open. We never want to leave and go home but we will see them again in October. We stay in the same room - Room 105 (efficiency suite) and its always super clean and I could ever find fault with anything there.
See you in a few months!

Room Tip: Room 105 has a full kitchen so you prepare your meals and save money. Also, there's lots of roo...

I stayed 5/10/14 in a suite. One large, comfortable bed with thick bedding and two couches that were pull-out beds. The room was no "ocean front" or advertised as "ocean view" but it did have a small view of the ocean from the inside and a decent view from the immediate balcony, which I appreciated. By the end of the night there were 7 of us on the balcony, drinking beers and enjoying ourselves until late. We slept 3 in the bed, 2 on the small pull-out and 2 on the large pull-out. I slept on the large pull-out and it was equally as comfortable and spacious as a regular bed at a chain hotel. I had a great sleep on it and everyone else had a good sleep on their beds, even the smaller pull-out. On the balcony there is a lot of lawn furniture you can pull together so we were able to hang outside together.

Location is perfect of course. You're in Beach Haven, the beating heart of LBI.

The hotel staff were perfectly average which is perfectly OK to me.

One point deducted for cleanliness. There was a small amount of black ants on our kitchen floor. Honestly they were so few that it didn't bother us. Otherwise the carpet, bathroom, kitchen and all bedding was perfectly clean.

Overall I would stay at the Engleside again and I would recommend it to someone else. I didn't eat at the restaurant but someone I met on the balcony did and they said it was really delicious, first class seafood.

Pretty much everything on this island is closed up in winter but went for a get-away and it's open in off season. Stayed the night. Clean rooms. Had dinner in their restuarant and the steak was good but not great. Pricey but it's LBI so I kept things in context.

We have stayed at the Engleside for 5 years now and we love it. It has a great pool, a poolside bar that serves food and drinks, and easy beach access. The rooms are pretty nice for a beach hotel on the Jersey shore, although the suite we had this past year was a little musty smelling. Tip: don't pay the high price for the oceanfront hotel, instead ask for the large motel with deck that faces the courtyard, or go with one of the suites that aren't oceanfront - you still get a good ocean view from the deck.

Making our way from Boston to DC, we sought a nice place for one night - and thought it would be good to leave our tourist dollars with local establishments hit by Hurricane Sandy a year ago. We decided to try for Beach Haven on Long Beach Island. To our dismay, however, all the small B&B's had closed for the season. Virtually the only option was the Engleside Inn.

In fact, however, it was even more what we wanted than would have been a B&B: It was RIGHT on the water, and we could hear the surf (now a tame sea compared to that which devastated the area a year ago) and see the sun rising. The room was quite comfortable and clean. A "library" of DVD's was available for viewing in the rooms. Though they do not offer breakfast, complimentary coffee and muffins were available early.

Best, however, was how much this motel contributed to the community in the aftermath of the hurricane. Having been spared any damage while also having two generators, they provided housing for firefighters and police officers; "meals" of hotdogs and bottled water; and refuge for for many without homes.

This was win-win: Time on the Island during a season that is QUIET, beautiful walks on the beach, and supporting the local community.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean. They may be a bit more expensive, but they are truly wonderful!
