Colleen Hahn – –  Exceptional Experience!

“My experience at Lorry’s Motel was nothing short of exceptional. From the beautifully decorated courtyard to the dependable and friendly staff, everything about this place exudes warmth and hospitality. Whenever we needed to be in touch with someone, there was always a helpful and attentive staff member who we could count on. The owner Bill is a kindhearted man who rented us his beach house across from Lorry’s Motel.
Speaking of the house, it was simply delightful. Clean, cozy, and homey, it felt like a true home away from home. Whether we were lounging in the spacious living room or cooking up a meal in the well-appointed kitchen, we felt completely at ease and comfortable.
But what really sets this seasonal rental apart is the sense of community that permeates the entire property. From the friendly neighbors to the welcoming staff, everyone here is dedicated to making your stay as enjoyable and memorable as possible. Whether you’re here for a weekend or an extended stay, you’ll feel like a part of a big, happy family.
All in all, I would highly recommend Lorry’s Motel to anyone looking for a warm and inviting place to stay. With its beautiful décor, dependable staff, and strong sense of community, Lorry’s Island End Motel is the perfect choice for anyone who wants to experience the best that Long Beach Island has to offer. Thanks again!

Dustin McLaughlin – – We Knew We Were In For A Treat!
From the moment we stepped onto Lorry’s Motel Property, we knew we were in for a treat. The beautiful courtyard with accessible tables and grills gave the place a homey feel that immediately put us at ease. We met with the owner, Bill, who rented us his immaculate 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom beach house. The house was beautifully decorated with a coastal theme, and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. We were thrilled to find that the house was furnished with everything we needed to enjoy our stay, including a fully-equipped kitchen, plush beds, and 5 large flat-screen TVs, one for each bedroom and the living room.
The exceptional customer service provided by Bill and his staff was a standout feature of our stay. Bill’s responsiveness and availability were impressive – he was always just a phone call away and consistently made himself available to answer any questions we had. His staff also took great care of us during our stay. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful at night, which ensured we got a good night’s sleep and woke up refreshed for a day of fun. The proximity of the beach, just a short stroll away, was another major plus.
Overall, we had an amazing experience at Lorry’s Motel. The price was reasonable and affordable, and the level of comfort and convenience was unparalleled. We were also impressed by how exceptionally clean the house was – every nook and cranny was spotless, making our stay even more enjoyable. We highly recommend Lorry’s Motel to anyone looking for a peaceful and enjoyable vacation by the shore.”

Maggie F. – – I Feel At Home At Lorry’s! 
I have been coming to Lorry’s since my daughter was about 4 years old. That was 24 years ago. We both love it here and cherish every moment we are lucky to come here on summer vacation, off season, holidays, get away weekends. I have had my 2 little grandsons here several times and they had the BEST time! We will definitely keep coming back. The owner Bill, goes above and beyond to make our stay comfortable, relaxing, peaceful and fun. Staff has always been kind and friendly and like family. The rooms are clean and comfortable and simple. There is no stress here. The Southern tip of LBI has always been my favorite. Quiet. But just a short drive to Beach Haven. I highly recommend this place for a peaceful, enjoyable stay with people who are friendly, kind and caring.

Jenn F. – – Lorry’s Island End Motel – GREATEST VALUE on Long Beach Island!
My family and I have been vacationing at Lorry’s for several years. We are never disappointed with the accommodations, and the staff is super friendly. It is an ideal location- very close to the bay and one short block from the ocean. My daughters love the wildlife reserve and the view of Atlantic City in the evening. Sunsets on the bay are the highlight of our stay. The beach is never crowded. We’ve stayed at the motel and the house. Both are a great value! Plenty of room and very clean! It is always a pleasure to plan our vacation-the owner, Bill, is always happy to help and provide the best stay on the island. We plan on many more vacations on LBI at Lorry’s!

LBI Hotel Guest Bridgette And Buck At Lorry's MotelBridgette & Buck R. –  Buck and I wanted to Thank You again for making our surprise wedding such a wonderful experience. We could have not done it without all of you! Lorry’s Island End Motel has always been a magical place for me and now I have been able to share it with Buck and his family. A very special thanks for reserving room # 7 for us and our post-wedding champagne gift! As you have heard, my parents and I always came to LBI and stayed in that particular room, many times a summer and for many years. What you may not have known is that both of my parents have since passed away. My mother when I was nine and my father some years ago. So By Having Our LBI Wedding at Lorry’s Island End Motel, it was almost like having my parents with me! It could not have been more perfect! We look forward to seeing you next year!

LBI Hotel Guest At Lorry's Wedding On The Beach SaraJane G. –  I Can’t Thank You Enough For Making Mike And Celia’s Honeymoon Special And Memorable. They loved the balloons and sign in their room, and were thrilled with Lorry’s – will visit again. You made it all very easy for me as well.  Thank You!

Mike & Diane K.  – Dear Lorry’s Motel Staff – Thank you for a delightful stay last weekend!  Our second stay in as many years and we were treated like returning family!  Bill and Lorry’s Staff could not have been more accommodating! Also, Congratulations on such a complete recovery from Hurricane Sandy!  We look forward to seeing you again. Best Regards, Mike K.

Anita L. – I’ve stayed at Lorry’s several times and I must say it’s the best place in terms of price, amenities, and location. Where Else Can You Stay That Is Geared To Helping Customers Save Money? There are barbeque grills, microwaves, and breakfast! The rooms are not fancy but they are very clean, and the neighborhood is very quiet. The owner, Bill, is a hands-on kind of guy. During my first stay, he took time to show me around the beaches at Holgate and told me of some of the history of the area. The staff is also very accommodating and friendly. And what a great location! The beaches are clean and the bird sanctuary is a wonderful place to take a long walk…all the way to the end of the island where you can see Atlantic City. I’ll so look forward to going there again in two weeks!

Mike B. – This is my 4th time at Lorry’s Island End Motel and the place looks better than ever. I love staying at Lorry’s Motel because I really enjoy the quiet, relaxing and comfortable atmosphere at Lorry’s. I love going to Long Beach Island, NJ  to vacation with my family and fish and enjoy everything Long Beach Island has to offer.

Long Beach island Hotel Guest At Lorry's Motel AnnetteAnnette & Michael D. – Last summer, my husband and I stayed at Lorry’s for the 4th year in a row and because it’s our favorite place to vacation, my husband, then boyfriend, PROPOSED TO ME. As we always have done, we took a stroll on the beach one night and that’s when he proposed. To top off the night, we actually witnessed 6 shooting stars! We were lucky in love!

I can’t explain enough how great the location is at Lorry’s. Not only is the location the best on the island, their hospitality is beyond wonderful and the cost is so affordable which includes all the amenities you will need on the island. Bill treats his guests like family and I’m proud to call it my second home! If there wasn’t traveling restrictions for my friends and family, we would have definitely gotten married at Lorry’s! Thank You Bill And Staff.!  We Love You. God Bless!

Ashley & Richard – Bill And Lorry’s, Thank You for allowing us the opportunity to stay at your quaint hotel. We had a Wonderful Time On This Beautiful Island. Hurricane Sandy has made Long Beach Island stronger. May God continue to guide and keep you safe and resilient for many more years ! Thanks Again !
Ashley & Richard

Bob & Mary Ann K. Thanks for the hospitality!  We had a Great Weekend, and look forward to returning soon! 

Jennifer J. – We Love Your Motel.

Melissa R. – Holgate (Beach Haven Inlet) is my “Happy Place.” I love to come to this end of Long Beach Island.

Justin W. –  Lorry’s Island End Motel Has It All, that’s why we are coming to Lorry’s. FREE Continental Breakfast, Beach Badges, Wi-Fi, Bicycles, Boogie Boards, Full Size Refrigerator, Microwave, BBQ Area with 3 Gas Grills — and the LBI Beach is only 200 yards away.

Don & Cindy E. – We Would Stay Nowhere Else On The Jersey Coast.

Twenty years ago we spent our honeymoon on Long Beach Island, but unfortunately did not know about Lorry’s Island End Motel. Since then we would stay nowhere else on the NJ coast.  Staying there is not so much staying at a motel, but more like staying with friends, both the other guests and the staff.  Everyone is so friendly and helpful.  Need anything at all?  Just ask Bill or the staff.  Having a problem getting the tire on your wife’s new bike?  Wait a minute and a couple of guests (one with a bike race T-shirt!) will come to help.  Etc.  You’ve probably read the details of the motel elsewhere on this site; but check out Bill’s website, the most complete and informative I’ve ever seen for any property.  All the guests we’ve met  fall into two categories: returnees and newbies who want to stay longer and will return.  If you want a quiet motel in a quiet residential neighborhood on the quiet end of the island a block from the ocean for a ridiculously fair price, this is it.  But to book, call well in advance.

Marianne M. & Frank – Bill,  Frank And I Wanted To Thank You and your staff again for coming to our rescue after our boat misfortune.   If more people in the world were more like you guys the world would be a much happier place.   We will pay you guys forward and will always remember you all with a heart felt Thank You.  With warmest regards, Frank and Maryann 🙂

Dr. Irwin G. – Dear Bill: On behalf of my wife, Lisa, and our two daughters, Audrey and Maris, I want to Thank You again for your help in getting us a LBI Hotel Room in our hour of desperation. Your deeds for us, pure strangers, rank in the highest order of goodliness and love of fellow man. In this world, I can only offer my thanks, but your true reward will be manifest in the world to come. Best Wishes, Dr. Irwin G.

David E. – Bill – Attached are a few pictures from our LBI striper fishing trip November 15 (posted under Lorry’s “LBI Fishing”). Nick Eppinger, Bruce’s son, caught his first striper as shown in the first picture. The second picture has Nick along with Andrew Eppinger, who caught two nice stripers (and won the pool for the largest fish!). As always, we enjoyed staying at Lorry’s and plan to do this again.

Elizabeth C. – Dear Bill, Thank You So Much for the courtesy that you and your employees showed me and my family. In addition, please extend a sincere Thank You to Fantasy Island Family Amusement Park. The children had a great time. Thank You again.

Michael M. – Hi Bill,  How’s My Favorite Motel Doing? We miss it already. We had a great time. Thanks for everything!

Linda L. – Joe & I Love To Come Back To Lorry’s Motel Every Year as Lorry’s is our favorite Long Beach Island Motel.

Michael Q. – It’s the little things that really matter. Here I am, only half way through my stay here, and I’m already more than satisfied. These people (Lorry’s) Know What LBI Hotel And Motel Service Is About. The Customer’s Count and they realize that.

Courtney C. & Family – We All Had A Wonderful Time and wanted say Thank You for such A Great Place. All the kids want to know when they can come back. The oldest boy has informed us that he plans on living over there. I appreciate all the info and help planning our activities. We will definitely be back. Your staff is outstanding also. You couldn’t ask for friendlier people.

Ron H.This is possibly The Best Place I Have Ever Stayed. Intimate, casual, friendly, affordable. Love the Full Size Fridge, Microwave. Bed very comfortable! Ceiling fans keep it cool. Perfect size TV although a channel guide would be useful. Staff is outstanding *****! I love your “Good Housekeeping Campaign”, I like the fact I don’t have someone walking in and out of my room. You have the perfect set-up. Keep up the excellent work. P.S. I love being able to hear the ocean at night from my room.

Don & Cherie P. – Dear Bill, I trust you are well and enjoying the great mercies of The Lord Jesus Christ in that beautiful portion of His Creation. My Wife Cherie And I Certainly Enjoyed Our Short LBI Vacation and the wonderful surroundings of the sand and ocean, neither of which do we have in our part of God’s Creation.

Bill and Cindy & Family – Just wanted to say THANKS! The kids had a great time. Many Blessings!

Bunty & Michael P. – Hey Bill, We Have Happy Memories Of You And Lorry’s Island End Motel. We remember our stay with you very fondly and wear our Lorry’s T-Shirts with pride. Take care, Bunty & Michael from Australia

Luann & Doug — Great Stay At Your Motel This Past Weekend. We were quite surprised with the size of our room! The place was very comfortable, quiet and clean. Your manager was helpful and courteous. We will be back again in the future.

Diane T. – I too surfed the Web looking for someplace to stay on Long Beach Island after the B&B I had gone to for years was sold and closed down. That’s when I came across Lorry’s Island End Motel. Their website is honest, informative and complete. I Have Been A Loyal Customer Ever Since. The Staff & Owner are friendly and helpful in making sure your stay has been a pleasant one. I have stayed there 3 times this year alone – the quality is consistent and there are no unpleasant surprises. The beach is just a short walk from Lorry’s and you can hear the ocean from the second floor deck of the Motel. The LBI Beaches are safe and well patrolled. The area around Lorry’s is residential which makes for a Quiet And Peaceful Atmosphere And A Relaxing LBI Vacation.

Mitzi M. – I’ve been visiting LBI for over 20 years, and to my amazement, it’s only been recently that I discovered Lorry’s Motel, hiding off a side street off the main thoroughfare way at the end of the island. My husband would have chosen this as the place to stay all these years. It’s his type of place. The rooms welcome you with firm, queen sized beds with clean sheets and of modest décor. There’s a large fridge, microwave and TV. To my surprise we even have online internet access, so we can bring our own laptop! There’s no rush to get up early to let the housemaid in the room. We can make our own beds or not make our beds. We can get our own fresh towels and soap. The atmosphere is homey. The room rates are very modest for a beach vacation area. Bill Hutson, the owner greeted us personally our first visit and made you feel welcome; his staff reflects his friendly care, and are eager to help, but are also sensitive to guest privacy. My daughter and I enjoy coming to LBI during the off season and are pleased we found a place we can relax, smell the surf, walk to the beach only minutes away, and make peace with our Creator. I am already looking forward to our next visit to LBI and staying at Lorry’s.

Hotel LBI NJ Guest Debbie At Lorry's MotelDebbie M.  – I have never experienced a vacation like the one I just spent at Lorry’s Island End Motel. Thank You for your thoughtfulness, your generosity and great company. It was a vacation I will be talking about for years. I look forward to visiting Lorry’s Motel on a regular basis – can’t wait until the next time! Thanks again.

Jay & Margaret R. –  Mr. Bill,  Thank You for the ice cream and milk shake. It was very good.  Love, Sydney & Keely (2 Granddaughters)

Bob D. – I surfed all the websites for Long Beach Island Motels and really loved Lorry’s Motel website because it was the most informative and honest. You won the right to my reservation and I am making my reservation at Lorry’s Motel now.

Kelly K. – No suggestions at this time. Our Stay Here Was Great. Everyone on staff was friendly and helpful. We would definitely consider returning.  THANK YOU !!!

Tracy L. – If You book a room at Lorry’s Motel based on what you see on the website, you will have no surprises.

Casey M. – My parents used to bring me to Lorry’s Motel on family vacations when I was younger. Now I want to propose to my girl friend at LBI. Thanks For A Special Place.

Kristin B. – I called a few times for different information and was happy with everything that is included, the BBQ’s will save a lot of money. The last time I called was to ask about Beach Badges and you include Beach Badges Free. Lorry’s is fantastic and provides everything needed for a Great LBI Vacation. I can’t wait for May to come to go on vacation.

Amy L. – We are so excited! We have 2 young children and are happy that the park (playground) is near Lorry’s. We are thrilled about your Free Labor Day BBQ as this will save us a lot of money on food. Thank You !

Ken K.Lorry’s Motel was a Nice Economical Get Away. We will be back next year.

Pat & Frank – Thanks for a great time. The place was super clean, nice quiet area, grills are a great touch. See you again.

Laura F. – I have looked at both your web site and reviews on Lorry’s.  I have to say one of the main things that attracted me and my family to your hotel is both the accommodations and reasonable rates, but also that you are a business owner in today’s economy that finds a way to give service to others. When I read that you give people a place to stay during the winter months it really touched me.  I am an educator and one thing I try to instill in my students is a life of service and I applaud you for finding a way to use your business to help others.  I look forward to meeting you and our stay at LBI.

Mary B. – Hi Bill, I just wanted to thank you for being so nice to me on the phone today. I appreciate you working with me to help make our LBI family vacation possible without the long wait on the bridge on Saturday. With our children coming from different parts of the country and with your help getting us set up on the island prior to the Saturday traffic I know our family vacation will be off to a great start! I have already emailed our children to let them know they will have a place to stay at LBI.  AGAIN, THANK YOU and I look forward to meeting you when my husband and I come on July 12.

Sandy B. – Your website is very complete and honest. We hope to be able to make it there this year. Thank You for the information.

Pat L. – I used to live in Barnegat Light and moved to upstate New York. Where I live now there is no beach and I have to come back to LBI every year so I can go to the LBI Beach. Friends of mine told me I have to go to Lorry’s Motel and visit that end of Long Beach Island, NJ.

Joe W. – Just a quick note to say THANK YOU. We had a great time with you all. The place was perfect for our needs. The two bedrooms including the bunks worked out great for the kids and us. It was very quiet even though the place was full. We didn’t hear a sound. The staff was wonderful and quick to respond to our needs (even at 11 pm on a holiday). We enjoyed the coffee and breakfast under the gazebo. Parking was only steps away. BIG THANKS. Hope to see you again. P.S. We drove all the way up from Florida just to see your Long Beach Island beaches. Love the soft sand beach and waves.

Robert H.- Hi Bill, Thank you so much for your generous offer it has really touched us in so many ways. I am sorry to have taken so long to respond but my mother had recently become ill and we have been busy with doctor visits and tests with her. She had surgery on the 28th of March to remove a blockage from her colon. I am sorry to say she has been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. I am not sure yet how long she has left or if I will be able to take her home from the hospital. But if it is at all possible Deb and I would like to get married on the beach or as close to it as I can get my mother. Again I don’t know if it can be done because my time frame is very limited. But your generosity and act of good will, Which is very rare today), has put you on the list of people I would like to be at the ceremony should we do it on LBI. Again I understand if you can’t make it, and I am not yet sure if we will have the time left with her to make it happen before the weather finally breaks, but I wanted you to know that you hold a special place in our hearts for your kindness and we would like you to be there.

Kevin & Jeannette C. – Many Thanks for all that you do. Pass it forward. Will see you next year.  Love & Blessings

Sandy & Denny M. – Hi Bill,  It was a beautiful weekend and we enjoyed our stay. We actually enjoyed the exuberance of the Girl Scouts next door and thanked them for participating in the dune grass plant. I hope it was successful. We hope to visit again. We like the quiet fall time. Lorry’s Motel Is Perfect.

Hotel LBI NJ Donation To NJ CAMA At Lorry's Motel   Dear Bill:  On behalf of the NJ Communications, Advertising & Marketing Association, I Would Like To Thank You for your generous donation of a Spring getaway to our holiday auction and fundraiser. It has been our tradition to give back to the community by donating to a local charity each year.

A portion of the money collected, plus a large number of toys and videos were donated to Family and Children’s Services of Central New Jersey to support their work with abused and neglected children, families torn apart by domestic violence, addicted adolescents and adults, and frail elderly clients who need care management. It is the caring and generosity of individuals like you that make our effort possible.

Thanks again for your donation.
