The Sea Shell is the perfect location if looking for a beach wedding on LBI! I was married there Fall 2016 and could not have imagined anything better! The in house wedding planners Jaimee and Brittany are the best you could ask for. They are very responsive and will help and give any advice you need. From our very first...

My family and I enjoyed clean, well-appointed rooms which had obviously been recently remodeled. Impeccably cleaned. Beach vibe upon opening the door to white wicker furniture and white linens. Shampoo, soap, makeup remover provided. Flat screen tv in room, along with a roomy mini - fridge. Bistro table and two chairs also provided. Complimentary coffee bar in lobby. It was...

From check in to early check out (left one day early due to Hurricane Hermine), not the best experience. For the price, a view of the grill of a pick up truck from our room was less then thrilling. "Private" beach, do not let the pictures fool you. There is a massive sand dune (understandably) put in place after Superstorm...

We discussed your concerns with you on several occasions. We all agreed, both of us, that your very large family group would have been better served by renting a couple of beach houses than staying in our resort. It is very difficult to travel with thirty or more people and be able to be together constantly, sometimes there is just...

We have a sailboat on LBI and it is difficult to find an appropriate venue for music and fun. We have been going to The Seashell on summer Sundays for almost four years. It is an outdoor venue, no cover and they feature Shorty Long and the Jersey Horns and a DJ. It is a lot of fun with a...

Staff was very nice. The food was pretty good. The Pool and beach acess was great! The rooms were a bit small with the TV facing one side of the room, next to only one of our two beds, a little odd. A lot of sand flies, even in the rooms. I know that the flies just come in the...

This hotel and location reminds me of "the notebook" The hotel is small, wicker decor in the rooms, nice bathroom, water pressure a bit low, there is actually in the room but it's a wall unit and made lots of gurgling noises.

First the good. Nicely renovated. Not exactly first rate construction (door knob incorrect on bathroom door, room door insanely crooked in its frame, etc ) but still, clean, new, and comfortable rooms. Housekeeping was great. All staff was actually very friendly. Rooms include beach passes and beach towels - very nice. The restaurants are solid. Not gourmet or earth shattering,...

Thank you for noticing all of our positive changes. We are very proud of our total transformation since Hurricane Sandy, and the reviews have been great. You are certainly correct, Long Beach Island has a new and different ocean view. The ocean is still there, you just have to take a little walk to see it. Not our idea, but...

Fun place with great food. Great for meeting for drinks, which you can do outside, if desired. Had the Alaskan King Crab - very good. Can be noisy, depending on when you go, as the inside seating is quite open and large groups are not segregated from smaller ones, so if you want an intimate dinner, try going early, mid-week...
