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

It is always surprising how few hotels are around Sandy Hook! I was lucky to be able to book a room in the last moment. It is very nicely maintained hotel; you can walk to the Harbor - live music every night! Bed was comfortable, service was there when we needed it( and invisible when we did not need it)... More

We stayed at the blue bay inn on a Saturday night in the middle of the summer. Great staff, very helpful with dinner reservations. The room was not huge but big enough for a couple. The bed however was the absolute most comfortable bed, we had the best night sleep. Inn was very quiet, we did not hear noise from... More

I have family that live in New Jersey (Toms River, Freehold and Red Bank) and have been visiting there for years. Let me say at the outset, it is not one of my favorite places. The traffic and density of population seemed to diminish my travel experiences there. However, on a recent trip my wife and I stayed at the... More

The service is amazing! People are so nice and the rooms are spectacular. We were in town for a little getaway and took advantage of their Spring Package, where we got a $75 gift card to copper canyon and a late checkout along with champagne. The staff took care of us like we were really special. They made the reservation... More
