After walking by this quaint motel countless times during trips to LBI, we decided to stay here as a partial-week alternative to the weekly beach house rental. We stayed in the HUGE Bay Suite and I'm writing this review because I couldn't be happier with our decision to stay here. With a sun porch and private deck, kitchen, living room, dining room, 2 bedrooms, and full bath, you cannot beat the value factor. Beach badge use is included, there is an outdoor shower, and it's within walking distance of all Barnegat Light has to offer. The beach at the end of the block is pretty wide, but the town offers frequent on-beach shuttles to the shoreline. Alternatively, you can walk, bike or drive a bit south to a block that has less of a sandy trudge to the ocean. For those accustomed to staying at a rental, there is an added bonus: linens/towels are included, daily maid service is provided, and there's no Saturday/departure day scrub-down. The extremely accommodating manager let us hold on to our badges after check-out for a bonus beach day, and allowed use of the outdoor shower when we returned the badges. It's not fancy, but this place is remarkably perfect. (The downstairs rooms look pretty small but are very reasonably priced.)

We visited preseason. Four adults and an infant. We stayed in room 201, which is a huge 2 bedroom suite. More like an apartment. Fully equipped kitchen, great dining space, huge sun porch, we immediately felt right at home. No trouble cooking up a great meal with fresh seafood from Cassie's. If you are planning on cooking, bring spices and condiments you may need. If we lived closer,we would be regular guests. We all loved the easy going ambience.

So close to all that Barnegat Light offers the serious birders and yet affordable, clean, comfortable with very friendly, concerned owners and....very reasonable rates. We walked everywhere and appreciated the great diner around the corner for coffee early in the AMs and a next door restaurant for some very good food and drink.

Room Tip: We were the first guests of the season and had a downstairs front room which for us was fantastic.

This was our first time staying here when our other hotel on Long Beach Island was not available. The rooms are very small (very, no exaggeration) but, as others have commented here, they are clean and the motel's location can't be beat. Just minutes away from the beach, from several good restaurants, and from the bay. The price is also a huge plus and, really, what more do you need besides a clean room and affordable rates when your destination is a New Jersey beach vacation?

My son and I were on Long Beach Island during the months of Nov.2012 and Dec.2012 for storm claims from SSSandy. We found White Whale Motel while on the island working.After many days of being on the road we found the motel by accident .It was Thanksgiving day -we were able to get a room that night. It was wonderful the room was very nice super clean ,the owners were great in helping us with everything , WiFi and directions around the island. We will return to White Whale again but this trip will be to relax and enjoy the island . We were there about 3 weeks in room 104. Worked in another area of New Jersey and came back for 1 week in room 101. Both rooms were great. I have told many friends and family about this true island treasure.

Room Tip: all of the rooms will be great
