The available hotels on LBI are pretty bad, so when I saw this place, I jumped at it. Yes, it's expensive, but not when you consider that a nice B&B on the island is even more per night, and the flea bag motels run only about 30% less in high season. The hotel is super clean and neatly furnished. I had a small room at the corner of the hotel for one night and it was more than sufficient for my needs. The bed was very comfortable and the room was fairly quiet (but it was a Monday night. I might be concerned staying over the weekend, with the bar above one's head.) The staff was friendly. My one complaint is the bathroom sink. For some reason, they installed these sinks that are 8 inches higher than the counter. While they look funky, they are impractical. I'm a woman of average height and in order to wash my face, I had to stand on my tiptoes. I would have liked a step stool, because I had to bend my arms at such an uncomfortable angle. Strange that no one thought of this, before going with that option. The one amenity that is worth the cost of admission: the ability to use their outdoor showers after you check out. I hate driving home full of salt and sand, but don't want to lose the beach day. Their showers make that drive and the day of check out so much nicer. They'll even give you a clean towel!
