Engleside Inn
Ranked #5 of 12 Hotels in Beach Haven
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We have stayed at the Engleside for 5 years now and we love it. It has a great pool, a poolside bar that serves food and drinks, and easy beach access. The rooms are pretty nice for a beach hotel on the Jersey shore, although the suite we had this past year was a little musty smelling. Tip: don't pay the high price for the oceanfront hotel, instead ask for the large motel with deck that faces the courtyard, or go with one of the suites that aren't oceanfront - you still get a good ocean view from the deck.

Stayed: July 2013, travelled with family

Making our way from Boston to DC, we sought a nice place for one night - and thought it would be good to leave our tourist dollars with local establishments hit by Hurricane Sandy a year ago. We decided to try for Beach Haven on Long Beach Island. To our dismay, however, all the small B&B's had closed for the season. Virtually the only option was the Engleside Inn.

In fact, however, it was even more what we wanted than would have been a B&B: It was RIGHT on the water, and we could hear the surf (now a tame sea compared to that which devastated the area a year ago) and see the sun rising. The room was quite comfortable and clean. A "library" of DVD's was available for viewing in the rooms. Though they do not offer breakfast, complimentary coffee and muffins were available early.

Best, however, was how much this motel contributed to the community in the aftermath of the hurricane. Having been spared any damage while also having two generators, they provided housing for firefighters and police officers; "meals" of hotdogs and bottled water; and refuge for for many without homes.

This was win-win: Time on the Island during a season that is QUIET, beautiful walks on the beach, and supporting the local community.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean. They may be a bit more expensive, but they are truly wonderful!

We wanted to go to the beach for a few days and had trouble finding hotels on the Jersey Shore that let you bring dogs. This place did and we got a deal if you stayed 3 nights the fourth night was free and no pet fee! Unbelievable, some places charge up to $30 a dog a night (we have 2).The place was really great and super close to the beach so you could run back and forth to your room for items you needed. Loved Beach Haven in general and would return.

Room Tip: We had to stay on the bottom floor because our dogs have arthritis and can't do steps, but the u...

We went to the Engleside for my birthday weekend and it couldn't have been nicer for a shore hotel. We got an oceanfront suite with 2 double beds, a small efficiency kitchen, and a living room with a great view of the ocean. The balcony had new comfortable lounge chairs. We didn't need them, but the sofas opened up to queen-size beds. The suite was clean and fresh- smelling with basic amenities like an iron, ironing board, hair dryer, small fridge, coffee pot, toaster, and frying pans. It even had a small bottle of Palmolive dish soap. There were 2 tv's and 2 DVD players.

Room service was available from the Engleside restaurant, which is one of LBI's best restaurants. We didn't use room service, but it was good to know it was available. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. It's a comfortable inn, but don't expect a luxury hotel. One downside is that there is no elevator, although I believe you could ask for help in carrying your bags. We were on the second floor, but last time we were on the third floor, which has a better view since it's higher up over the parking lot which is behind the building before the dunes and ocean. We went the last week in October, which is when some of the restaurants close for the winter (Stefano's and Chicken or the Egg), so it was relatively quiet (although you may hear dogs barking in the morning since animals appear to be permitted).

Overall, we had a great time and I'd consider making this an annual event. We always rent a condo in the summer and staying at the Engleside in October is a great way to say goodbye to summer/fall and get ready for the holidays.

Just spent 4 days at a conference hosted at the Engleside. The staff went out of their way to make sure all our needs were taken care of. It was a wonderful place to hold and attend an event. I would highly recommend it!

Friend and I decided to go down during October. We had a great time. She brought her very well behaved dog. The weather was perfect, the pool and ocean were wonderful. We especially like the convenience. The Sand Bar's friendly staff and poolside service can't be beat! We also love the Sushi!

The rooms on the first floor are not as nice. We choose ocean front efficiency, which was very nice and affordable in October. Third time there and we'll be back!

Engleside is a great "Beachy" find. Love it.

Room Tip: Don't choose 1st floor, rooms are outdated

..and we can't wait to go back! We go off season (usually May and Sept-Oct), so we can bring the dogs. That's the best thing about this place, it's very dog friendly! There's a huge park right across the street to walk them in the morning, not to mention they are allowed on the beach. We always stay in room 310. It's definitely worth the $$. It's super clean and the service has always been excellent for us. We love everything about The Engleside and recommend it to friends often. The last time we were here was, I believe, May 2011, we haven't been back since, because of an old dog that recently passed. There are no elevators, only stairs, and he couldn't make the three flights. We are heading down this month with our other two dogs. Can't wait!!
