Island Beach Motor Lodge
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Seaside Park
Reviewed 17 September 2013

My husband (Mike) & I (Barbara) have traveled from North Jersey to stay at this motor lodge for many years. We enjoy the beach, atmosphere and staff here. As a matter of fact, there is one person that always makes my day when we get there. Her name is Dawn she is the receptionist at the motel. She is a pleasure to speak with on the phone & in person. She is informative on local events, restaurants or just local place to hang out. She takes the time to speak with you as she's answering the phone, making reservations and making you feel welcomed as she attends to it all.. Take time to meet Dawn I'm sure you'll feel the same way. It's the people (Dawn) that makes you want to come back....Can't say enough about 'er....:) C U Soon.... The Kelly's

Room Tip: I always want the 2nd story rooms b/c balconys face south.

We LOVE Island Beach Motor Lodge. Island Beach State Park is our favorite stop along the Jersey Shore so this Lodge is perfectly located for us. The penthouse and oceanview rooms are the best by far. Who wouldn't want to wake up hearing and seeing the ocean? : )
Of coures Atlantic Bar and Grill is one of our all time favorite restaurants. Chef Mike and his staff is amazing!!! So glad he came back!

Room Tip: Penthouse or Oceanview rooms are the best, but no room will leave you disappointed. Dawn is always s...

I have to say, they only had 1 room left when we wanted to stay, so I expected the worst! If our room was their worst, then their best must be out of this world! Our room was very clean, everything worked, it smelled nice, and the bathroom was all in great working order. We are staying again, in the same room, for Labor day weekend!

Room Tip: We got the last room, and we thought it was a great room!

This was our first time at "IBML" and our family of six enjoyed it so much that we booked a room for next year when it was time for us to check out. Dawn (receptionist) was so welcoming and helpful with all our needs, as were the rest of the motel staff.
The rooms are very clean and the private, clean beach just a few steps away with just another few steps to the dunes of "Island Beach State Park". There is plenty of parking which is something quite rare at the jersey shore and that helps you feel secure in knowing that anytime you want to take a ride, whether to shop, eat or sight see, you will have a parking space when you get back to the motel.
The motel is dated, but this is to be expected when prices are so reasonable. However, the air conditioning worked beautifully as did the appliances in the kitchenette and our shower; and you can't beat that when you're sharing a room with a large group. I can honestly recommend this motel and say it was a great vacation.

I am so happy to write this review. I booked this hotel for myself and my 2 kids and a friend from HS with her son and we were so happy with it. The people on the phone when I booked were very nice and when my friend arrived before check in they allowed her to leave her belongings in the lobby and use the pool until I arrived. The room was exactly what was pictured on the web site. It was clean and fresh. The sheets crisp and the pull out sofa bed comfy and newer. Will be back again. Location great. You can not go wrong with this hotel.

Room Tip: I would say request an upper level room but the first floor would also be fine upstairs just gives...

We went to Chincoteague Va this year, rented a beautiful house, and missed IBML every day. We missed the location of the beach, the staff, and just the "at the beach" feel. We missed the fishing end (which was basically shut down due to bird reproduction) and the locals were extremely rude, which was so unlike the friendly seaside park residents. We missed being able to walk a few yards left into the state park and find our own quiet piece of heaven away from people when we wanted a little quiet to ourselves. We missed the ability to drive to the boardwalk (if the quiet got to be too much) but most of all, we missed the convenience of being able to wake up at the crack of dawn and grab a cup of coffee, throw on a hoodie and just walk out on the beach to catch the sunrise stumbling over your 2 feet because your not awake yet. No loading up the car, driving 10 mins...its all right there. IBML is a little dated, but for us true beachgoers that are on the beach from before sun up to past sun down...we basically only use the rooms to shower and sleep (and occasionally to eat) so old tiles dont make a difference. Never ever will i go anywhere else. We love this place so much, we came back from Chincoteague and booked another vacation here in early fall.

We stay here any time we want to spend a weekend at the shore. It is right next to Island Beach State Park, has its own private beach, large, clean rooms, efficiency room available and wonderful workers/owners. Plus it is next to the best restaurant at the shore, Atlantic Bar and Grill.

Room Tip: I like to face Island Beach State Park.
