We just got back from our stay at the Island Beach Motor Lodge. The motel is located right on a very clean beach and it just is a short walk over the dunes to get there. Our room was a one room efficiency that had a mini kitchen (cooktop, microwave, fridge and sink)
Good Points: Very clean, great beach location that also had a variety of places to eat, very quiet location right at the gates of the state park, beautiful beach that wasn't too crowded, nice to have a small kitchen. For a small deposit they gave you beach passes. Parked right out front of our room, so it was very convenient.
Bad points: There wasn't anywhere to put anything, no hooks in bathroom to hang a robe. There was a very small rod with a few hangers, but I had to use one of the kitchen chairs to set my suitcase on. The mattress was very uncomfortable, by the 2nd night my sister's hip was really bothering her, I would also bring my own pillows next time, the ones they had were so thin.
All in all we enjoyed our stay and probably would go back, just don't expect the Ritz Carlton and maybe bring some pillows and an over the door hook for the bathroom!
