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,...

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...

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.

I have been staying at this hotel every summer for the past 15 years and it never disappoints. This hotel is exactly what you expect at the Jersey shore. It is clean, reasonable and right on the ocean. You are only steps away from a beautiful, private sandy beach. The people who run the hotel are friendly and helpful. It...

I recently visited the lodge with my elderly mother. I had been staying there for over 20 yrs on and off. This place never changes. That is a PLUS..The staff and receptionists (exception to one) are so charming and accomodating as always! They keep it immaculate and are so responsive to their guests. I always liked the proximity to the...

The motel is simple but acceptable. The location is great, close to the beach with a choice restaurants. Jerri the receptionist was really rude! I was greeted with a condescending, snarky attitude. The other staff members were very accommodating and friendly!

Hotel was great in October and remains great after "Sandy". We were their only guest and it was still great-----friendly staff makes all of the difference. Even though services were limited due to time of year and weather related situations---- we enjoyed our stay as we always have!
