I found the Engleside to be the perfect location for [our family]. I also found the staff to be very pleasant. We were traveling to the Inn a day after Hurricaine Irene and I was amazed at how quickly LBI and the hotel were back in action. The hotel staff notified us to arrive a day later and we were able to stay a day later as well. The location is wonderful, right on the beach with a great pool bar and nice acoustic music in the afternoon. We had an ocean view efficiency that was neat and clean with a balcony from which you can hear the tunes. It was very peaceful at night. The food at the pool bar was great for lunch. There are several really cute things to do with the kids within walking distance from the Inn. I would highly recommend this Inn as well as Beach Haven for young families.
