Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Property's Favourite Review
Our three night stay at the Sandcastle was above and beyond a usual hotel stay. Our delicious breakfasts were delivered to our deck outside our room each morning per request. The sheets and pillows were so much better than any regular inn or hotel, and quality beach towels were there for our use each day. Bathrobes were provided, which was nice to lounge in after a day at the beach. The rooms and the inn were impeccably cleaned and there are no complaints from our stay. We will stay there next year again. I didn’t have the opportunity to borrow bikes, but beach passes were provided. Audrey and her husband Brian care deeply that their guests are satisfied and it shows. A huge shout out to them and their staff for the fabulous visit.

Sandcastle is beautiful and in a wonderful location close to Barnegat Lighthouse.. Our room was spotless and very comfortable. The innkeepers are friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to offer a vegan breakfast to my daughter which was much appreciated. We have been there often through the years and look forward to returning again.

This is the best B&B we’ve ever been to. Beautiful rooms and amenities, scrumptious breakfast, and wonderful and accommodating service. A great location too! The owner Audrey couldn’t be more gracious and thoughtful. We definitely plan on returning again and again. Just the perfect vacation for us. Keep up the great work!

Very charming place. Room was nicely themed and extremely clean. Very quiet and tranquil atmosphere with a beautiful pool in the backyard. The best breakfast I’ve had in a long time, delicious! Across the street from a small marina, a block away from park, beach, mini golf, ice cream, liquor store and diner. Next door to kubels restaurant/bar. There are bikes to use, along with beach chairs and badges that are included. Awesome experience.

This is a lovely well appointed B&B. Rooms are fully stocked and well appointed. We had a room overlooking the bay.great for sunset viewing. Rooftop deck has great views of bay and barnegat lighthouse. Staff is excellent and very efficient. We stayed 4 nights, each breakfast was unique, large, and very tasty. Depending on the day, options were blueberry pancakes, waffles, breakfast burrito or my favorite, eggs, bacon, and toast. The pool is large and heated, You are in walking distance to shopping, restaurants, mini golf, and most majestic of all Barnegat Lighthouse State Park. They provide beach badges, beach towels, and chairs. Coffee, tea, and soft drinks are available 24/7. Most important is how quiet it is at night. Each room has a designated parking spot, so no parking issues. Last but certainly most important is the staff. They are there when needed but very unobtrusive. We will certainly return if we get back to LBI.

The bed and breakfast was a really nice, quaint place with a beautiful bay view! The beach decor was so cute. The neighborhood was quiet and nice to walk around. I'd definitely recommend this place for a quiet get away!
