What a cute & updated hotel this is. Joe and his wife have got to be the most accommodating owners I have ever met. I won't give them 5 stars, I will give them 100 stars. Best value for a motel on the island
I had a wonderful stay here! The rooms are very clean, and I stayed in a nicely furnished efficiency with a cute little kitchen nook. The owner, Joe, was incredibly kind, friendly, helpful, and hospitable. The location is also fantastic--a short walk to the beach, and within easy walking distance of lots of restaurants and shops. Would absolutely recommend!
Had a great visit at the Islander. It’s conveniently located near the entrance to the island, and there’s an incredible donut spot (Shore Good Donuts) on your way to the beach, which is just two blocks away. Joe was helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and reasonably-priced. We were able to use their beach tags and beach chairs. I would stay here again.
This was my 1st time in LBI, and I can't say enough good things about the Islander Motel. We were supposed to check in in the afternoon, but our room was ready to go. That's a testament to the preparation and the cleanliness the Islander provided. They were not taking any chances during this pandemic. The room was pristine, and it was a block from the beach. Joe, the owner, was spot on with all of his recommendations on food and activities. My girlfriend loves seafood, while I'm an Italian Sandwich kind of guy. He recommended Ship Bottom Shellfish and Mystic Meats. Both were A1 recommendations. Then we went mini golfing at night. My girlfriend loved it, while I'm a sore loser and don't wanna talk about it.... I'm a natural skeptic, and I was iffy at first. But soon as we got there all of my skepticism melted away and I just felt happy to stay at a wonderful place, with an incredible staff. This was one of the best experiences I've ever had at a hotel or motel. Thank you for everything, Joe! You truly are a gem!…
I posted this on a local Long Beach Island Facebook page, but I wanted to make sure it was shared here as well. “I know a lot of people look for houses when coming down to LBI to rent, but I wanted to HIGHLY recommend The Islander Motel in Ship Bottom. Joe was the man at the front desk, and who I assume is the owner. He was nothing but kind and helpful. The room was clean, with a microwave, keurig, and fridge. It’s not big and flashy, but it doesn’t need to be, because if you’re looking for a very reasonably priced, clean and friendly place to spend a few days, you’ve come to the right place.” Great experience with the Islander Motel!!
