“wonderful family place in a quiet neighborhood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2012

We stayed at this motel a couple of years ago and are going back this summer. The prices are affordable. The location is great if you like a more quiet neighborhood. We have a large family and they had 2 BR rooms that accommodated us well. The rooms are not fancy but they have a refrigerator which is nice when you are trying to save money on meals. There are grills to use if you choose. The complimentary bagels are fantastic. The staff was friendly and helpful. Do not come here expecting a high end hotel experience, but it is a wonderful, clean motel with a lot of good qualities. Everything you could want to know about this motel is on their website. They are open and honest. This is a place we will continue to go to for years.

My husband and I stayed at this utterly charming motel over Memorial Day weekend. It felt timeless and lovely; the room was clean, the complimentary bagels and coffee were appreciated, and the location can't be beat. We also loved having access to bicycles so we could join the locals in taking advantage of all of LBI's beauty. We plan to return; they don't make motels like this anymore. Thanks to Bill for his generosity.

My family and I stayed there for the first time this year at Lorry's Motel, and Bill was awesome, he even went out of his way to make calls for us to help us find a great place to eat. The fact that my 6 year old daughter and us can walk down the middle of the street is neat, so quiet in that neighborhood. The rooms where cozy and clean, love that fact that you have a porch where you can hear the ocean and that its walking distance to the beach. A postive thing is when your laying in the bed with the windows open you can hear the waves. It saved alot of money having the grills and full size refridgerator. I would recommend this motel to anyone. Matter of fact we are planning our next stay there again this year.

Yes, the location is great. I realize with the reasonable rates that accommodations would be simple. But you can offer simplicity and still be presentable. However: the carpet was stained,paint peeling and cracked, light bulb missing, overall dingy,no one to empty trash or replace soap and plastic cups. Having refrigerator and microwave was convenient, don't expect dishes or utensils of any kind. Despite "no smoking " in rooms, there was constant smoking outside our door so we were exposed anyway.....very unpleasant. Amenities : rusty bikes with poor choice for kids, broken boogey boards, bagel and coffee breakfast. So, like other review, don't be swayed by pitch from owner. Spend the money and go elsewhere. Again.....simplicity can still be quality.

Please read the reviews below of jstanz3510 and tackandjibe -- because we agree with every word they wrote about this outdated motel at the end of LBI. While it's true that we picked this hotel after my sister was 'pitched' by Bill on the phone (we had chosen another, but he twisted her arm) because the $149 per night rate was reasonable, next time we want to stay at LBI for a couple of days, we will pay the extra $50 per night so that: we do not fall over each other in the TINY room, so that we can come back from the beach to use a FUNCTIONING outdoor shower, so that we move comfortably in the bathroom (so tiny). The outdoor shower did NOT have any hot and cold knobs only a knob that you literally had TO HOLD DOWN while the water came out and it was HOT water. What child would enjoy being rinsed off with hot water?
Mr. Hutson believes that having a big refrigerator in the room and those gas grills and all those picnic benches and tables outside is what is important, it is not! while we were there I only saw 2 families use those grills (we were there earlier this month, so a busy time at the shore). Yes, a roof is important, but guests want a pleasant room, our room was extremely dark and depressing and the bedspread was filthy. the Continental breakfast, a bunch of individually wrapped bagels with WEAK coffee, that was undrinkable. And the air conditioning is central controlled, so we FROZE at night and the only way to not freeze was to turn the vents off and smell the dirty room. We would not recommend this motel nor ever consider staying there again. don't be fooled by all those good reviews here, something is not right.

My Husband and I just returned home from a lovely visit from Lorry's Island End Motel. It is the perfect little get away if you are looking for peace and quiet. We met the owner who was more then happy to go out of his way to make sure our trip from Ohio was a pleasent one. The room was perfect and offered a ceiling fan, screened windows if you like the fresh sea breaze and central air. It was clean, fully equiped bathroom, full size refrigerator, free internet access, tv, couch which was also a pull out bed, dresser. (non smoking rooms) however you could sit out side and there were many picnic tables, chairs, kazebo, outside showers, three gas grills, bicycles, boogie boards and beach passes all for our use. The staff was very friendly and very accomidating. In the morning there were fresh begals with toppings, oj, milk and coffee. This is all included in your room price. We hardly spent any money after paying for the room. It had it all.Sitting out on the porch you were able to see the bay on the right side and the ocean on the left. It is located seriously on the end of the beach. A short bike ride up the road and you would come to the strip. So many shops, so many nice people, so quiet and clean. We visisted the Broadway ice cream shop and was totally taken away. Such talent. The show is a must to see. Back at the uncrowed beach you found beautiful clean white sand and nestled next to that was a wildlife preserve. All in walking distance from the motel. Water was all around us. This was such a relaxing vacation. This is the perfect place if you are not looking for frills and just want to relax, get a way from the hussle and bussel of the everyday work schedule. No staff knocking at your door yelling room service, This was great to me because I do not like people coming into my room when I am on vacation. If we needed anything staff was there to get it for us. You could tell by talking to the owner, and just looking around that he has put his heart and soul into this motel . come on now how many motels offer 3 types of air in your room. It was like visiting family. Everything was taken care of. Thank you Bill for making our vacation so wonderful. We will be back. This was definetly my type of vacation.
