A great place to stay during the off season at Beach Haven. The rooms are really nice, a great view of the beach and the rates are cheap. Located close to Bay Village. We will be back.Don Brovero
Comfortable and nicely appointed rooms. Great happy hour - sliders are delicious. Professional staff. I highly recommend.Cathy Moore
Stayed for the week near the hotel and restaurant and frequented the restaurant and bar several times. The food,ambiance and service were excellent. Had two dinners there and each time the food was great. The scallops were wonderful. Enjoyed the Bloody Mary and rum runner at the bar. LeeAnn and Kat were excellent servers and I felt like part of the Spray Beach family. Thank you Spray Beach. I will be back!!!Randi Runk
We weren't guests of the hotel, but instead had dinner at the Sand Dollar restaurant, which is part of the hotel. Overall an excellent dining experience, with cheerful and courteous waitstaff and delicious food. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their entrees, which were delicious and served on an eclectic collection of dishware. The live entertainment, a jazz duo, was enjoyable and added to the experience.Bob Schroeck
A very nice hotel!!! Love the location and restaurant!!Steve Andrews
Clean, newly updated room. Helpful staff. Right on the beach, so the views are gorgeous. The bathroom was freezing (I went in winter), but once I got into a nice hot shower I didn't even feel it anymore. I'd definitely come back!Jennifer B
Always love visiting spray beach. It's a little pricey but it is right on the beach. Nice pool, especially for young kids and the restaurant has great food. Decent specials and a nice beach bar. Never stayed anywhere else after several great stays. **Note:First floor is not a beach view with the dunes. Jenn Tagle
Very clean friendly it has a pool and is right on the gorgeous beach. There is a restaurant and a bar The female bartender was wonderful. The ambiance is great. Long Beach Island is one of my favorite places to be.Heidi R. Grosse
Great family hotel. Heated pool + hot tub, just steps to beach with bar & outside tiki bar. Great place to stay.paula puliti
Nice location and the restaurant was great. There was a live band on sat night!Mara Chomsky
Just relax and let this place roll over you. Place is on island time, but isn't that the point of LBI? Great crab cakes, juicy clams, beer is cold. Have loved this place for 20 years. One of those places that makes your shoulders drop in relaxation if you let it. Can't wait for Summer!Dan O., Middletown, NJ
During our stay I think we tried everything on the drink menu, including the daily drink specials at the Tiki bar. Drinks were creative and great to enjoy on their dining deck overlooking the water or to bring back to our perfect spot on the beach. We had breakfast a few times, as well as lunch. You can come and dine right off the beach (coverups, of course). The Veggie wrap, fish sandwich, and Jersey special were our favorites. I definitely think the Spray Beach Inn is worth a stop, especially if you would like to eat outdoors. Enjoy! Tara D., Fort Myers, FL
This place is beautiful, super clean and friendly staff!!! Great value for the money.Veronica B., Bristol PA
Great weekend! Clean, quiet and the beach was awesome!Allen Wilson
Found online through google, walked in, was affordable and enjoyable. The location is great!Kristi Whestine

No complaints ... the stay was quiet and great thank you so much! Will definitely be returning!Amanda Crandall
Had a great stay and definitely return in near future!Sharon Cavello
Spur of the moment decision to stay over Christmas Eve. The staff had left early for the holiday. We arrived shortly after the lobby closed. I called the phone number listed on their website. A woman answered and I explained that we booked the room earlier in the day online. She explained that the lobby closed early for Christmas Eve. She then apologized and turned around from heading home and let us in! Fantastic customer service! We had a wonderful time. Thank you!Expedia Review by Eric
Where to startâ€¦Ok, remember 5's only for total experience. Found this place 8 lite houses into the LH challenge. We're not locals and the shore being a summer place, many places are closed. 12 hours into our trip, it was like a beacon (tee hee) in the night. Room comes with a pool view, but its Oct, what do we need that for? Well surprise... it's heated. Walking around in coats all day and floating to music in the evening. Fabulous! It's a drinking pool, shallow, with lots of steps. Admittedly it was hard getting out, but this place must rock in the summer. Then we went to dinner. A very pleasant Thomas was our waiter, but everyone chips in. If your order is ready anyone may bring it to you. If you're done with something, anyone will take it away. It was nice to see. We started with a cocktail. Followed by warm bread & butter, 6 oysters on the half shell, 6 oysters Rockefeller. We split the large Caesar salad and Salmon Oscar. I wish I had taken a pic of the salmon, it was expertly plated. We were perfectly stuffed and ready for the long trek home... in the elevator. Would love to come back.Lisa Zoller
Great shore place! My family has been staying at this hotel since the 80's. Spray Beach Hotel has a great location, food and drinks. They have many specials throughout the year. Hotel located on the beach. Enjoy a day on the beach get breakfast lunch dinner at one of their restaurants. Enjoy happy hour then relax at pool with hot tub. Never have to leave! Highly recommend. Trip Advisor Review by sunshyne454063
We had an amazing vacation at the Spray Beach Hotel! The rooms are updated not only with decor but also had all the amenities you would need - mini fridge, microwave, hair dryer, etc. We greatly enjoyed the beach bar & restaurant, tiki bar, pool and hot tub that we took full advantage of on the rainy days. It truly is one of the most "resort-like" hotels on Long Beach Island. The staff was incredibly polite and kind to us when we had to rebook our vacation last minute due to a family emergency. They did not hesitate to allow us to rebook our days and honored our deposit. I cannot thank the staff enough for their kindness and flexibility. Great times & great memories were made during our vacation and I look forward to coming back to the Spray Beach hotel next year. I will be recommending this hotel to family & friends!Expedia Review by Sam
Perfect Holiday Getaway! My husband, our 21-year-old daughter and I stayed at the Spray Beach for 5 nights in mid-August. Our intention was to have a brief (cooking-free, laundry-free for me) summer holiday on LBI. We love Beach Haven because there is plenty to do and the Spray Beach was the perfect location. The hotel was clean and charming and an excellent choice for our short getaway. We mostly ate at local restaurants like Polly's Dock and Barry's (both highly recommended), but tried the hotel for its crab leg dinner special and it was very good. The beach side bar was a terrific spot for an evening cocktail/beer--bar tenders were super nice and mojitos were excellent (So was the bloody Mary, according to our daughter Grace!) Hotel beds were very comfortable--pillows were especially comfy. We were very close to bike rentals, Surflight Theater, Bay Village mini golf, water slide etc. Great fun reliving old memories on LBI! Trip Advisor Review by Janet
Ocean view! The perfect place to stay! You won't be disappointed. The view is phenomenal! Spray Beach has it all. You don't have to leave the place. Restaurant, tiki bar and pool! My #1 priority is a clean room and it was perfect. I also want to mention that all the personnel I interacted with were both pleasant and accommodating. When making the reservations over the phone, the staff was so courteous and helpful. Upon arriving, everyone working there made the visit perfect. A vacation to remember and to be repeated! Thank You Spray Beach. Trip Advisor Review by nj1devilsfan
Beachfront therapy... Husband and I were here from July 13 to July 17. We had a third floor oceanfront room that was perfect-clean and such a view! Spent time at the delightful outdoor bar- the staff so fun-Eric, Elise, Brittany and Sherry. Great appetizers too! We also dined at the outdoor area. The food was fantastic-we were so pleased with the quality and they don't kill you with pricing! Waitstaff were outstanding, friendly and easy to talk to. Christina, Thomas, Joe and Ron, the manager! You enhanced our fun! The beach - gorgeous, clean and wide. Pleasant, and peaceful, perfect for families. My ONLY issue was that we had a long walk to the local attraction area, but it's a 5 minute drive! And be advised, most restaurants don't serve alcohol, you may bring your own, but we didn't know. So we ate at the hotel! Will absolutely return! Trip Advisor Review by Donna C.
Location in just perfect, right on the beach, most beautiful clean beach in LBI, the outside dinning and bar was like going to tropical vacation spot. Live music at night with dinner was great. Staff very paid great attention to child with us, much appreciated. Dinning was great for breakfast, lunch and dinner, all good meals and reasonable prices. Staff were excellent in all restaurant areas. check in was fast and easy, can use the facilities while waiting for your room. The pool was warm and great fun for kids, they had a blast No problem getting pool chairs even on a sold out weekend. Overall a great weekend at LBI, recommend Spray Beach.Trip Advisor Review by Donna R.
Love this hotel! We stayed for 5 nights in an ocean view room, falling asleep every night to the sound of the waves. The hotel is older but updated, well-maintained and very clean. Rooms are mice with refrigerator and microwave. The beach is beautiful. Can't believe how few people go for sunrise walks. I usually had it all to myself. Pool is great, with plenty of tables/chairs. We enjoyed ordering lunch there one day. Restaurant has a decent menu and prices. Drinks at bar are good. Staff/front desk were friendly and helpful - even made a couple of copies for us at no charge. We'll be back! Trip Advisor Review by planetmead
The location of this motel is perfect. We always choose to stay here when we visit the area. You can walk to almost every restaurant and shopping area. The beach is serene and large. Rooms are clean and staff is helpful. A nice getaway!Expedia Review
We stayed here in late April 2018, overnight, for a wedding. I enjoyed how much it reminded me of New Jersey beach vacations from my childhood! This is an authentic original, built in the early 60's but with all the modern amenities. We stayed in the main building, by the pool. The room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was small but adequate. Our room had a lovely kitchen table near big windows, lots of natural light. The restaurant was fairly priced; food was tasty, big portions, excellent friendly service. Front desk staff was polite, professional and helpful. We were there off season so the pool was closed; beach was lovely for long walks. There are plenty of stores nearby. Yes, I would stay here again.Trip Advisor Review by Robert T.

Everyone wants to score a deal on travel, but price is just one factor to consider when booking an unforgettable hotel. Whether you’re visiting family, attending a conference or taking a well-earned vacation in Long Beach Island, having an awesome experience should be a no-brainer.
Hotwire will hook you up! From restful nights near your flight to that prime spot in the city’s heart, we’ve done our research to bring the best options to your fingertips. Book your Long Beach Island hotel with us now and start your next adventure.
You’re not the average traveler — and we know it
You’ve done your homework and know exactly where you want to go. We’re here to help with some Hotwire travel geek-approved tips on how to save on your booking.
Get away for the weekend
Hotels in bigger cities usually charge higher rates during the week, when people are traveling for business. Weekends can be a bargain! It’s the other way around for vacation spots, so if you’re looking for a beach escape, consider a mid-week trip.
Give yourself some wiggle room
If your plans are flexible, play around with some different travel dates – a shift of a few days either way can help you save big. Prices usually jump the weekends before and after popular holidays, so we recommend steering clear of them. Or consider visiting during the off-season, when prices are generally lower.
Plan around big events
Are prices surprisingly high? There might be a huge conference or festival in town. Consider shifting your dates if you can. Of course, if that’s why you’re going, you’ll have to bite the bullet. We’ll still work to get you the best rates out there.
Noodle over new adventures
Set aside time to plan what you want to see, taste and discover. Nothing completes a trip, big or small, like a few new experiences! Check city apps or area websites to find out what’s new and what events are happening during your stay. Even during a family reunion, you can detour to that locals-only fish taco stand or under-the-radar music club. Your cousins will be impressed.
