Found the Islander via Trip Advisor and glad we did. Had about a five night stay July 2014. Room is very clean and spacious with two adults and two young children. Chairs outside of room and additional larger balcony shared by all on second floor as well. Owners were very friendly and gracious to lend us bike locks as we...

Great location. Joe and Anne who are the owners are friendly, helpful and very welcoming. Not often when you stay in a hotel/motel when you have the chance to speak with the owners and get firsthand information on the area. Rooms are not fancy, but comfortable and very adequate. Housekeeping was fine. Wi-if wasn't the best, but made do. Parking...

The Islander is superb because of the people who make it work. They are hard-working, caring, dedicated and extremely thoughtful folks. I highly recommend this establishment to those who cherish such personality traits. I certainly do.

Recently stayed again at the Islander in Ship Bottom NJ. The room we stayed in was not the room we normally stay in but it was just as nice. It was clean and very comfortable and the staff was very attentive. It's a great place to stay when in LbI. It is close to the beach, many close and very...

I had the chance to stay at The Islander Again! Joe had a last minute cancellation so I was able to come down for three nights. Everything looked great and again it was like meeting an old friend. The area is changing for the better, there is a new sushi spot one block away. I was also informed there will...

The Islander Motel was the perfect spot, very clean, spacious room and close to the beach. The motel is one block from the beach. There are terrific restaurants in walking distance and are BYOB. The best of all was dealing with Joe (owner/manager) and his staff. They are the best! They were courteous and helpful in more ways than one....

We decided to take a last minute trip to LBI for four days. We booked the Islander based on reviews and we are SO GLAD that we did! First of all, right from our first dealings with the owner when we booked, we had a great feeling. He was personable and helpful from the start. We got to LBI early...
