I was planning a last minute vacation to LBI for my wife and I and having never been there before I called around and found a handful of hotels that had availability. The Islander was one of them and it was one of the most reasonably priced places. I looked at review and pictures online and on their website and one common sentiment was how clean the place was and how nice the owner Joe is. He is truly a people's person. There wasn't one thing about my 4 day stay there that I can complain about. The owners were very helpful about suggesting places to visit and good restaurants. We will be back to the island in the future and will stay at the Islander. I am glad the reviews I read convinced me to stay at the Islander and I would recommend you stay there too!
