“Another wonderful stay:)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

Stayed at the Islander hotel again. Our second stay here and it was excellent! We stayed in a room on the second floor which had a full size refrigerator and a stove. The bed was extremely comfortable and big. It had a nice size bathroom with plenty of hot water. The room was very spacious and nicely decorated. We had a big screen TV and very comfortable chairs to sit in. The place is extremely clean. The women that clean are really good and very pleasant. We were close to the beach and close to many great places to eat. The owners are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. They are very pleasant and helpful. We can not wait to go back. If your going to LBI then this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: The rooms are comfortable

My husband and I went on a three day trip and loved it!!! The place was extremely clean and nicely decorated! Joe actually upgraded our room because I had added an extra night. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in for a hotel. Joe is the nicest person, very helpful in recommending places to try, restaurants, etc. He couldn't have been more helpful. We have been going to LBI for 20 years, and this is the first time we tried The Islander, and it won't be our last!!

Many years ago this was the place to hang out regardless if we stayed overnight or not, later on my family and I moved too far so I never got the chance to return to this hotel. This summer we came back and what incredible surprise was to completely renovated/updated and it is super clean. Our room was simply fantastic and the service is very good. If you are planing to visit Long Beach Island in NJ make sure to check this hotel as soon as you can because this hotel books quickly during during the summer season.

Room Tip: Any room will be a great experience. I stayed on the bottom floor and it was simply convenience so n...

My husband and I stayed for a long weekend and we loved it. Joe & Anne are very nice and extremely helpful. . . they know who, what, and where so if you stay here ask them what to do and where to eat. We will visit again.

The room we stayed in was spacious, clean and comfortable. The fridge, microwave and dishes were also great to have for leftovers. It was like home away from home.

Even though we had no chance to stay overnight, because there were no rooms left, Joe gave us good advice where to go and saved us from a long ride back to NYC! Thanks Joe, we made it and we´ll be back for a stay and not just pass by :)!
Have a great summer!

This is our second stay at Islander and my second review. We stayed here 3 years ago and loved it but now I cannot find the right words to describe what Joe did with the place. Completely renovated, everything is new, beautiful and spotless. The beds are very comfy, they have a big flat Tv, a nice size fridge and a Keurig coffee maker. The bathroom is very nice and spotless. There is also an outside shower and a playground area. Free wifi. And the silence! We are from the Bronx (which will never get an award for the quietest place in the world) and last night my husband said oh my God is so quiet here, Im getting scared :). Good value and great location, coming to LBI and not considering this motel would be a sin! It's exactly what you need to make your vacation perfect. Thanks Joe and Anne, you are the best and possibly the nicest people we ever met.

Room Tip: Don't even bother to choose a certain room. They are all amazing. Get the first floor if you don...

Darker curtains!!! The lights outside the room were so bright, hard to fall asleep. Other then that... GREAT PRICE, GREAT LOCATION AND WONDERFUL OWNERS!! I found a review of the hotel on google and I called and they were just as lovely as they said. We called to stay again but they were full and no wonder, they are so awesome!
