The Williams Cottage Inn is a wonderful B&B across the street from the ocean. The innkeepers, Bette and Merle, are so friendly and attentive - as are Sarah and Bernadette. The cleanliness of the entire B&B and our rooms was outstanding. The covid protections they've also taken to ensure everyone's safety is also appreciated. The two-course breakfast was absolutely delicious, and dietary needs were accommodated which was greatly appreciated. Our first stay was in the Dome room overnight. It was so pleasant that the next weekend we booked an overnight in the Aviary room. Both rooms are beautifully decorated and have an ocean view. Fresh baked cookies and candy are in the lobby. Bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels are provided if you don't bring your own. Wine openers, glasses and utensils are also provided by the Inn. It was lovely to hear the ocean while eating a takeout dinner on their porch. I highly recommend staying at the Inn. We will definitely be going back.

My husband and I stayed here for a relaxing two night getaway weekend and the Inn did not disappoint. We stayed in the Garden room. Bette and Merle were very friendly and there for anything we needed. The breakfast both mornings was sensational-they even catered to my dairy free needs! They provided bikes and all the essential things needed for a day at the beach. Every day they had fresh baked cookies that made the Inn smell delicious at all times! Highly recommend staying here!

We had a fantastic 3 night stay in the Asia room. We were greeted by Bette upon arrival, which gave us the scoop on covid protocols, breakfast offerings, history of the inn, and even fresh baked cookies! The common area of the inn was very charming and spotless clean. We didn’t use it much, mainly bc of covid, but I imagine it’s a very popular area in non-covid times. The outdoor areas are also in really good shape, with more than enough seating and tables for outdoor dining. The rooms are all themed, and though we didn’t pay much attention when we booked, the Asia room was very comfortable. That particular room has Asian themed decor throughout, and a very Asian spa-like bathroom, complete w steam shower and soaking tub. The bed in the Asia room was very comfortable. The two course breakfasts were fantastic every morning. I don’t actually love breakfast foods, so B&Bs typically aren’t my cup of tea, but these were all excellent. Kudos to the chef. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend Williams Cottage Inn to anyone looking for accommodations on LBI.
