We arrived and were greeted by Joe the owner (what a great guy!!!). When we went to our room, which was behind the office and across from where... More

We stayed four nights with our two boys and just had a wonderful time. Many great places to eat within a short walk. The staff was warm, welcoming. Joe was just a pleasure to deal with. The beach was a short walk and in great shape. There is an abundance of Coffee (Key for me) with a ice cream /... More

We went for a last minute weekend getaway. Owners Joe and Ann were friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, comfortable and updated. Anything we needed was within walking distance including the beach.

Found the Islander via Trip Advisor and glad we did. Had about a five night stay July 2014. Room is very clean and spacious with two adults and two young children. Chairs outside of room and additional larger balcony shared by all on second floor as well. Owners were very friendly and gracious to lend us bike locks as we... More

Great location. Joe and Anne who are the owners are friendly, helpful and very welcoming. Not often when you stay in a hotel/motel when you have the chance to speak with the owners and get firsthand information on the area. Rooms are not fancy, but comfortable and very adequate. Housekeeping was fine. Wi-if wasn't the best, but made do. Parking... More

The Islander is superb because of the people who make it work. They are hard-working, caring, dedicated and extremely thoughtful folks. I highly recommend this establishment to those who cherish such personality traits. I certainly do.

Recently stayed again at the Islander in Ship Bottom NJ. The room we stayed in was not the room we normally stay in but it was just as nice. It was clean and very comfortable and the staff was very attentive. It's a great place to stay when in LbI. It is close to the beach, many close and very... More

I had the chance to stay at The Islander Again! Joe had a last minute cancellation so I was able to come down for three nights. Everything looked great and again it was like meeting an old friend. The area is changing for the better, there is a new sushi spot one block away. I was also informed there will... More
