This was a clean, comfortable motel with great access to the beach. Very honest staff, I left my IPAD behind and it was turned in and I was called right away. Nice to be able to trust people. Lots of fisherman stay at this motel.

It was clean and affordable. The people in the office were very nice. It was off season , so very quiet. I loved that we could just walk onto the beach at anytime. I'm sure it gets crowded in the summer.

This clean, quiet, ocean-front older motel is a stones throw, literally, from the protected Island Beach State Park so expect to see lots of birds and animals, but only a rare human party-animal. The motel is isolated from the usual beach party scene. Prices are reasonable and affordable.

I stayed at the IBML for a week. Can't for the life of me understand why folks say that "they cater to fishermen". If that's the best lodging in that area that caters to fishermen, then it is a sad state of affairs, IMO. I went to the office the morning after checking in to ask about: -"You said that...

We stayed at this hotel the weekend after labor day. The bedroom had no air conditioning. The main room did . I was told when I called to make reservations that the hotel had air conditioning. Then when we were there the staff said the ocean breezes usually cool off a room. Nope, not the case. The staff gave us...

It had been many years since I had visited the Island Beach Motor Lodge... almost 20 to be exact. Many things have changed about the Jersey Shore. But thankfully, the Island Beach Motor Lodge is still a great place to stay. A luxurious hotel it is not. But that is unimportant. Having the private beach is definitely a plus as...

We used to love coming here - almost every year for the past 7 years ... but this trip was disappointing to say the least - the rooms were clean upon arrival but the entire week we stayed the cleaning crew - if you can even call them that - was horrible - they did little more than replace towels...

We have stayed here every year for the past 11 years. We LOVE it here. You cant beat the ocean views and the private beach and the access to the state park beach. Its quiet and away from the craziness of Seaside Heights but only a short drive to go down to the boardwalk. There are a number of places...
