Our expectations were really high for the Blue Bay Inn because of the price and location. In many ways, they met them. The staff is wonderful. The hotel is clean. The one bedroom suite was spacious and clean. We loved that you could get a variety of fresh brewed coffee and tea 24/7 in the lobby. In many ways the... More

In my visit to the Atlantic Highlands I was very pleased with the amenities of the Blue Bay Inn! First of all the mini town was really relaxing and so comforting! Everyone was so nice! The night that we went Copper Canyon was closed, but we absolutely love that place as well! It is so convenient that the hotel is... More

Nestled in the town of Atlantic Highland pleasant hotel of approximately 18 rooms. Efficient, helpful front desk, easy parking. The rooms are average but definitely meet your needs. Housekeeping is a bit spotty and probably needs more management purview. Would definitely recommend this hotel if you are in the area.

Very nice boutique hotel in an area where this type of hotel is a rarity. The rooms were very well appointed - great beds, linens and a beautiful bath. Note that rooms on the higher number end are over the restaurant although it did not impact our stay.

Great little boutique hotel..Charming place with great service, relaxing atmosphere with nice restaurants in the area. Very convenient to travel to Jersey Shore or into New York City by ferry. Great Value! Copper Canyon restaurant on premise is very good!

This place is just wonderful. The staff are kind, helpful and interesting. The rooms are each done differently with lovely fabrics, decorator touches, and very comfy beds. WiFi throughout the hotel, free coffee service in the Am, and a great place to eat next door. Atlantic Highlands is lucky to have such a perfect little hotel. This would make a... More

The Blue Bay Inn is a great hidden gem in atlantic highlands. The staff is very professional and the rooms are pristine. I have stayed at the Blue Bay several times and each time it seems to get better and better. Super comfy beds!

We stayed here after an event at the Shore Casino. The front desk staff was great. Warm and friendly when we arrived. They made check in quick and easy. Parking is available at the municipal lot around the corner. The front desk provided an overnight parking permit. The room we had was quiet and the bed was extremely comfortable. We... More

We had booked a hotel in Sea Bright for a Labor Day 3 night stay so that we could enjoy the beaches at Sandy Hook. We found that accommodation on Friday night a disaster,and checked out as soon as we could on Saturday Morning. (More on that on another review). Fortunately, we were able to Google up the Blue Bay... More
