We where doing the NJ Lighthouse challenge Oct 18-19 2014 and didn't know where we would end up on the first day so, we were unable make a reservation ahead of time. When we reached the last stop we called Glenn at the Bentley Inn and asked if he had a room for that night, he was very gracious and... More

Glenn and his staff were very welcoming to my family! While I'm fairly familiar with the area, my family was not. Glenn provided assistance in helping them find things to do in the area between wedding activities. The beach is just a block away and I enjoyed watching the sunrise. The Inn itself is very clean and I enjoyed spending... More

We spend a week in Manhattan on business and went to visit Bay Head for a weekend before going back to Denmark. The Bentley Inn was exactly what we needed. A place easily recommended to others. Special thanks to Glenn and his staff for a welcoming atmosphere.

A grand old house with small but comfy rooms that open onto spacious shady porches ... the Bentley follows gracefully in the older traditions of the Jersey Shore, when my parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents vacationed in Bay Head. Only come here if you want a piece of the genteel, sweet, bygone days. Sharing a bathroom ... everyone did it then,... More

Thank you so much for staying with us and your fine review. We are the "old world" style of shore lodging with all it's charm (with air conditioning, TV and wifi of course). The feel of a giant old seashore house is becoming more rare these days... it is just more "earthy" and inviting. I think the real appeal of... More

The Inn is quant with nice décor and very clean. Love the beautiful porch on the second floor where anyone can relax with a book or drink in hand. The owners of the Bentley Inn are very hospitable and accommodating. You can't help but feel like your friends with the owners. They offer beach badges, towels, and, best of all,... More

Originally from the Rumson area before moving to NYC, we love the Jersey Shore so decided to take a last minute get away (for a week) in Bay Head. We had never been to Bay Head or The Bentley Inn but again looked at the reviews on trip advisor and made our selection. One of the recent posters said it... More

A very enjoyable experience and Glenn makes it feel as you are his only guest...and you're at the shore! What can be better than that! And what a recovery from Hurricane Sandy...there are no signs at The Bentley! Great breakfast and multiple restaurant choices nearby for dinner!

Thank you very much for the kind words. We do try to make everyone feel at home because all of our guests are special. The Bentley Inn and the town of Bay Head worked very hard post Sandy to get back to normal. We look forward to seeing you again. Glenn More

Stayed 2 nights in room 19 because of 2 beds. The house was well maintained and very, very clean. The Inn owner, Glen is very personable and knowledgeable about local news, events and things to do. The inside sitting room was cozy with comfortable furniture. The outside second floor porch faced East and South with the first floor porch facing... More

We have stayed at the Bentley Inn with some frequency, our third home is more acccurate, and have always relished the personal hospitality we receive from Glenn, Janet and the staff. Thank you for always making it seem so special.

We stayed here for the weekend of our wedding and it was perfect! Glenn, the innkeeper is so nice and hospitable and the breakfast was great every morning! This is a perfect Bay Head Inn. It's charming and beachy. It's so close to the beach and the bay and the shops of Bay Head. They have beach towels and chairs... More
