My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend at the end of June (Th-Su). We had a third floor ocean view room that had a deck that looked out directly onto the beach and pool. The room was terrific (2 queen beds), accommodations were very well-maintained, and we had a nice kitchen area with a sink and refrigerator for the basics.
The hotel has a pool with a shallow and deep end which was appreciated. The shallow end filled with kids but for the most part the deep end was available to adults. The nearby tiki bar was great for pool-side libations and evening entertainment with live bands.
We went for my husband's birthday and enjoyed our stay immensely. The hotel is very near Beach Haven and we enjoyed quite a few walks while there, we only took the car out when heading to the other side of the island. As opposed to other hotels we've stayed in in LBI we found parking to be very easy and we never had to search hard for a spot.
While it was quieter the first few nights (Th & Fr) it never felt packed and the pool was never overfilled. Also the general crowd was very nice and thoughtful about asking the kids to give the adults some space at the pool. There's a beach entrance right near the parking lot which made it very easy to get our beach chairs/towels/umbrella right up on the sand and throw them back in the trunk before heading in for a rinse.
Tiki bar service was great and food was good for snacks. We didn't try the main hotel restaurant while there.
