My husband and I opted to stay at a bed and breakfast for our 3 day stay in LBI as opposed to a hotel for around the same price. We found a gem in Victoria Beach House.
The rooms were very, very clean but ours had a continuous "beach" smell - musty, like when a beach house is closed up all winter and it's just opened for the season. Once we ran the air conditioner for about 24 hours the smell subsided (or did we get used to it?). Also, the air conditioner did not cool off the room until we had it on for at least a 24 hour period also. Aside from the a/c clicking off and all all night , the area is very quiet and peaceful.
Also, don't expect shampoo and scented liquid soaps or even a large room......but DO EXPECT - beach towels, a wonderful breakfast, availability of beach chairs and bikes to use, a heated pool, and kindness and generous hospitality from the host and hostess.
So....it's just a tradeoff as to whether you want an ordinary hotel or a warm and cozy atmosphere in a great location and a block from the beach. We would return again.More
