Needed to get out of Philadelphia for couple of days. Haven’t been to LBI for 6 years since moving to Oregon. Before we used to come to LBI few times a year and always out of the busy season. It’s hard to find a good place to stay in the winter but Engleside is open year round. Right on the beach. And they haven’t changed except upgrades in furnishings. Always very clean and comfortable rooms. No frills but very consistent. The stuff is amazing. Very accommodating. Housekeeping does a great job!! If you want to wake up to a beautiful sunrise and see the ocean you want to be on the 3rd floor of the hotel!!! And it’s usually protected from prevailing winds. They have great beds and the most comfortable pillows I’ve ever encountered in any hotel. And since I travel for work and spend up to 8 months in hotel rooms I was super impressed. Not uncommon to find good beds but this is the 1st time I’ve had such a great pillow
They have room service and outstanding restaurant which is always very consistent.
Out of season there are not that many “eateries” that are open so to have an option of just walking across the parking lot and get awesome food is amazing. Definitely worth coming back. It also just happened to be in my favorite part of the island. On the side note, when it’s not freezing we’ve watched surfers and dolphins catching waves from the balcony which is also private
I have stayed at many of the hotels in LBI, and this for sure is one of the top ones. The hotel is on the beach. The hotel has a great restaurant and pool for during the day! And the location is perfect…walking distance to all the fun stuff in Beach Haven!
Once again we had a wonderful October vacation at the Engleside Inn!. Everything was great at the Engleside Inn- the rooms are clean and comfortable and the ocean view can not be beat. The staff were friendly and helpful and weather was perfect. I am already looking forward to our visit next October.
Family stayed at the Engleside Inn recently for a Fall family wedding in LBI. The accommodations were excellent. Returned home and definitely booking for a family summer vacation. Want to enjoy the pool, beach, and whole LBI area in general.
My wife, our giant newfie buzzy and I spent four relaxed days On The island while our house was painted. Started our days with some great breakfast in Beachhaven and we took long walks on the bay side.Coming back to the room for lunch it was nice to have a full size fridge for cold heinekens. We had good parking right at the door, and the pool and the beach were steps away. We stay at lots of hotels in our travels, and rates right at 5 the top.
Just returned from the Engleside having spent 6 nights there…Lunch at the Sandbar is a must! Spent most of my time in the pool which is heated BTW…My husband and I have been vacationing there for 20 years or so. The rooms are clean, the staff is wonderful, the beach is wide, the restaurants are fabulous. Walking distance to many other restaurants and shopping. We usually leave our car at the Engleside and walk everywhere.
Had a terrific experience at the Engleside Inn. My husband and I stayed in the efficiency suite with our dog, Bella, and had a great time. Staff was friendly, room and property were clean, and the beach was wonderful and well-kept. Very pet friendly. The food at the restaurant was delicious. Bella loved the beach and ocean! Look forward to our next stay at the Engleside!
I’ve stayed here for over 20 years, and have avoided reviewing the hotel because I’ve questioned my objectivity. I do not own the Engleside, or any property on the island, but after a lifetime of vacationing on the island, 20-some years of it at the Engleside, I feel that maybe I know it better.The island is rebuilding after amazing damage, but I just spent several days and have to say that the hotel is just as it has been during my earlier visits. The staff are helpful, the rooms are super clean, and the oceanfront room view is still wonderful! Bed is comfy with big fluffy duvet, and the big chair is a great place to watch the beach while the wind whips around outside! (rooms vary-your room and view may be different!)LBI is rebuilding, but the spirit of the people there is strong and I would not hesitate to return. The beach is still beautiful, the ocean is still fascinating, and the Engleside is still comfortable and friendly.Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple.
