We have stayed at The Islander about 4 or five times over the past few years and it never disappoints. The comfortable rooms are always extremely clean and fresh. The location is terrific-just a short walk to the beach. Just love to sit on balcony in the morning with a cup of coffee. We've stayed in season and out, with...

I just spent nearly 3 weeks staying at The Islander. I was working in the area and needed a clean, reasonably priced hotel with wifi, AC, and a microwave/refrig combo. Well I got exactly that at The islander plus much more. The rooms are very nice, no musty smell like a lot of Jersey shore motels. The owner Joe and...

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...

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.

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...

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 /...

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.
