“Great little spot”
Reviewed 27 September 2008

I spent all my summers at Barnegat as a kid and remember when the was called the Sea Splash Motel. It was empty for many years before being refurbished and reopened in 1998 by the present owners, who are a very friendly and welcoming couple. The motel front with the marlin is a Barnegat Light icon.

The motel is an older property, but it is well maintained and very clean. All of the downstairs rooms are straightforward motel rooms, but the rooms on the upper level are all "Efficiency Units" - they have a small kitchen with fridge, sink, two electric rings and a full complement of pots, pans, plates & other kitchen wares.

The rooms upstairs are also nicer (in my opinion) because you have a attractive balcony/landing outside the door and you are away from the car park.

We stayed in three efficiency rooms; I had a futon efficiency which has a double bed, futon, kitchenette and bath. My travelling companions each had a room with two double beds, kitchenette and bath.

Barnegat is right at the end of Long Beach Island and on Central Avenue, where the North Shore Inn in located, you are one block from the ocean and one block from the bay. The motel provides Beach Badges (required during the season). The owner, is also a keen fisherman and can recommend fishing boats/trips if you are up for some sport fishing while you are there.

The North Shore Inn is convenient for all the Barnegat Light institutions like Mustache Bill's Diner (across the street), The Islander Store (next to Mustache Bill's) and Kubels Bar & Restaurant, which is at 7th & Bayside. It is an easy stroll to the Barnegat Light Museum, the Lighthouse and all the local shops.

The motel has free wireless internet connection and I had great signal throughout the property.

We had a very pleasant at the North Shore Inn. It is very well priced, clean, convenient and welcoming. It does get busy through - even after Labor Day, when we were there, it was doing a brisk trade.

  • Liked — Great hosts, kitchenette and wireless internet.
  • Disliked — That I had to leave after three days!

I normally rent a house in Barnegat Light, but I stayed at the North Shore for a night. Its older, but it was clean!
Anybody who knows LBI knows that the beach is ALWAYS close.
I would stay here again if I needed to. In the summer whenever I go by the motel, it always seems to be fully booked. Thats a good thing right?
Staff was friendly, too.

Stayed August 2003

Nice motel. Stayed there many times in the last few years. Old furniture and fixtures, but clean and great location. One block from beach, walk to lighthouse, my favorite bar/restaurant Kubel's, and the bay. Staff is very friendly. If you want world class accomodations, this ain't the place. But if you want a decent room at a reasonable price, the North Shore Inn is great!
