What Our Guests Are Saying...

  • The place is perfect in every way: Located in the center of LBI, the proximity to the beach, restaurants, attractions, retail shops, and drug stores. The motel is on the beach with an incredible view of the ocean. They keep the property pristine, the rooms were a perfect size for my family, and we felt safe and secure. How fortunate were we to stumble upon the place which made our vacation the perfect getaway.

  • Love the ocean front suite. Great spa tub overlooking the ocean. Great windows in bathroom over the tub. My favorite winter getaway!!! The room is quaint & clean.

  • Our summer weekend visit to this lovely clean ocean front motel has been a repeat on our summer things to do. We love the convenient location and the courteous staff, the surprise weekend continental breakfast . We go back knowing we won't be disappointed.

  • The Drifting Sands has it all. Extremely friendly staff, clean rooms, awesome view for a great price.. Perfect location right on the beach and at the center of all long beach island has to offer. Wake up to the beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean. You cannot get any better than this.
