From check in to early check out (left one day early due to Hurricane Hermine), not the best experience. For the price, a view of the grill of a pick up truck from our room was less then thrilling. "Private" beach, do not let the pictures fool you. There is a massive sand dune (understandably) put in place after Superstorm... More

We have a sailboat on LBI and it is difficult to find an appropriate venue for music and fun. We have been going to The Seashell on summer Sundays for almost four years. It is an outdoor venue, no cover and they feature Shorty Long and the Jersey Horns and a DJ. It is a lot of fun with a... More

Staff was very nice. The food was pretty good. The Pool and beach acess was great! The rooms were a bit small with the TV facing one side of the room, next to only one of our two beds, a little odd. A lot of sand flies, even in the rooms. I know that the flies just come in the... More

This hotel and location reminds me of "the notebook" The hotel is small, wicker decor in the rooms, nice bathroom, water pressure a bit low, there is actually in the room but it's a wall unit and made lots of gurgling noises.

First the good. Nicely renovated. Not exactly first rate construction (door knob incorrect on bathroom door, room door insanely crooked in its frame, etc ) but still, clean, new, and comfortable rooms. Housekeeping was great. All staff was actually very friendly. Rooms include beach passes and beach towels - very nice. The restaurants are solid. Not gourmet or earth shattering,... More

Thank you for noticing all of our positive changes. We are very proud of our total transformation since Hurricane Sandy, and the reviews have been great. You are certainly correct, Long Beach Island has a new and different ocean view. The ocean is still there, you just have to take a little walk to see it. Not our idea, but... More

This was our 4th year staying at the Sea Shell. The rooms have all been remodeled and are super clean. The food is delicious whether you eat inside or out and the cocktails are pretty great too. There is often live music and usually ample parking although you may have to wait for the beach crowd to leave for the... More

Fun place with great food. Great for meeting for drinks, which you can do outside, if desired. Had the Alaskan King Crab - very good. Can be noisy, depending on when you go, as the inside seating is quite open and large groups are not segregated from smaller ones, so if you want an intimate dinner, try going early, mid-week...

This is one stop we HAVE to make any time we are on the island. Great atmosphere, wonderful entertainment, and delicious food. If they are playing, DO check out Shorty Long and The Jersey Horns - they are fantastic and very entertaining. The fish tacos, and sushi were amazing. The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were enormous, and very good.
