This is my favorite place to stay when we go to LBI (Ship Bottom), Joe the Manager is a very nice guy, easy to talk to. Rooms are good size, clean, very accommodating, some rooms are efficiencies so it's great for a long stay. I have had to stay at other hotels when I could not get a room there and I can tell you I have been disappointed everytime. I actually shouldn't be writing such a complimentary review because now i'll never get a room. There was another great place, The Sandpiper, right near the Islander but it got sold and the developer tore it down and put up four houses. I hope the Islander never gets sold that would be a shame.
