    The best hotel in LBI (if you take all the factors into account) is definitely Spray Beach Hotel. They have a great swimming pool, they’re right on the beach, and their prices aren’t as high as some of the other hotels in LBI. My family also likes the location. It’s quiet without being too far from the action.
