This place feels like is should be on Highway 1 in California. Its a cute little motel ma and pa motel. The rooms are clean and great for the price (adjusted for LBI prices). We wanted to stay an extra day after a week-long trip to LBI. This was one of the few motels that did not require a minimum two-night stay. The location is perfect for us because that is where we love to be. You have How You Brewing, Kobels, Old Barney, Daymark, The Islander, Whites Market, Poppys, Zion Lutheran and Mustache Bills all a short walk from the motel which are basically the only places we go.
The room was clean, but walls are paper thin. We were in a downstairs room. We woke up at 7am with sounds from next room of a bed scraping against the wall from couple engaging in "bedroom" activities. After that stopped (about 30 mins), the upstairs occupants started thumping back and forth for another hour. It sounded like a herd of elephants.
My friends and I stayed here for one night and had a positive experience. The owner was very nice and accommodating. The room was clean and the motel was in a good location- close to the beach and you get a beach tag for every person in your room. Highly recommend staying at the White Whale and would go back here!
Sweet old fashioned beach motel. Half a block from the bay and beautiful sunsets and Kubels restaurant, which is a timeless seafood restaurant and bar. The room was clean with a small fridge. There is a little yard out back and you could grill. It is walkable to the lighthouse and ice cream places. There are also little stores within walking distance, and two other restaurants that you could walk to. Great location. Nothing fancy, but quite charming.
We stayed here for one night and it was a very nice place. We were close to the beach and they give you beach access tags for each person. The rooms were clean and the bathroom was well stocked. Most hotels don't give nearly enough towels, but we had plenty at the White Whale. We would definitely stay again if we were in the area.
