The Grenville is a comfortable hotel with a VERY nice and accommodating staff. The furniture in our room (#403) was an "eclectic" collection of pieces [antique-y bedspread, 1970s entertainment center, modern futon]. The room was clean as was the bathroom. Bed was comfortable. Walls were very thin (we heard a couple's midnight fight - they were staying down the hall... More

My husband and I Visited for an overnight get away with two other couples. Sorry, but I really can't find anything positive to say. A complete overhaul is needed. Extremely disappointed with our room. Worse than any dorm room my kids ever had. No place to hang clothes and the bed, bedding and pillows were horrible. We didn't even have... More

While the rest of the Bay Head/Mantaloking Shore was noticeably DORMANT, the Grenville was filled with pleasant chatter and gaiety associated with bridal showers and St. Patrick festivities -- a contagious, happy atmosphere. A dining secret we experienced during our stay was a superb chef with his signature features; honeywhipped butter ramkins, threads of julieene multicolored veggies teased with a... More

My daughter's bridal shower was held at the Grenville, and I must state, it was excellent!!! The food was exceptional. The staff was very attentive, polite, and courteous. I would 100% recommend booking a party there. The atmosphere was romantic and quaint. It was a beautiful venue and the Grenville made it such a memorable event. Our family and friends... More

The Grenville was very nice and has a lot of character. We are in our mid twenties and didn't want a room at a motel at the beach for Valentines Day! The Grenville was perfect! The room we stayed in was smaller than a typical hotel room but quaint and what I expected. The room was spotless and comfortable...a little... More

the grenville was just ok, but lacked some important, essential touches and cleanness factors. first of all the breakfast was pretty awful, fruit loops out of a plastic container, stale, old danishes, and instant oatmeal packs. the sheets were clean and laundered, but there was a big blood stain present. also, tons of hair on the fold out bed or...

My husband grew up in nearby Tom's River & wanted to visit. Our stay was one night and the weather was not as good as it could be- rainy, windy... We were greeted by the very friendly owner at check in. Our room was the turret room on the fourth floor (yes there is an elevator). The room was small... More

This is our third visit at the Grenville. We went there for our honeymoon 20 years ago and returned a few years later and went back this weekend to celebrate a birthday. I would love to see someone sink about $500,000 into this grand old hotel in renovations and updates. The people are always so friendly and the food is... More

My girlfriend and I were going to the beach for a night and needed a place to stay. We randomly picked The Grenville and couldn't have been any happier. I was planning on taking her to dinner and we chose the hotel restaurant because of convenience. It turned out to be one of the best meals we ever had. The... More
