We are a family of 5, so its hard to find a place we all fit comfortably on the island. The Islander has wonderful efficiency suites, the are big, clean and recently re-done. Not only that, but there is a courtyard and grill you can use and a play area for the kids to play basketball or run around. There... More

First time staying at the Islander. My family and I stayed in a first floor room for a long weekend getaway. The owner was very friendly. The property overall looks well maintained. The room was spacious and had all the necessities. Next time I'm in LBI this is where I plan to stay.

After traveling for years for business my most important criteria is cleanliness. The Islander is exceptionally clean. Centrally located blocks from the causeway, a block from the island's main drag and a block and a half from the beach, the Islander makes it easy to get around. Perfect if you are like me and use a room to sleep and... More

I decided to call the Islander Motel after reading he reviews on TripAdvisor. This was the last room they had available for the weekend when I called on a Tuesday to inquire. 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.

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.
