At first I was worried, but that is the result of my own OCD issues. I was very pleasantly surprised. While not the most up-to-date interior (a bit reminiscent of my aunt's shore house from 35 year ago), the Inn is well maintained and clean. Despite the age of the building and no central air, window A/C more than did... More

We stayed over the July 4th holiday weekend- and can't wait to come back. From the beautifully appointed rooms, gracious and professional staff and a breakfast that is the best in town. Glen (the owner) and his team go above and beyond. It's truly the gem of Bay Head.

I have stayed at the Bentley Inn two times. I stayed in October 2014 when looking for accommodations for a family wedding. All of the groom's family then stayed weekend of May 16 for wedding. Great place and very welcoming. Thanks Glen for making this a special weekend!

Friendly accommodating service from the reservations to the check in was welcoming. Rooms were clean and comfortable with personal touches. Inn is located the heart of a beautiful, quiet residential neighborhood but a close drive to great restaurants and activities. Outside balcony has nice ocean views. TV could be larger but other than that the room was perfectly decorated for... More

Stayed at the Bentley Inn for a "Sisters' Getaway." Glenn, the owner is so friendly and accommodating and will bend over backwards to make your stay as enjoyable as he can. (His Yorkie, Rosie, is a sweetheart too). The Inn is very clean. The living rooms are very cozy and the enclosed porch (where breakfast is served on warmer days)... More

Our family home was filled to the rafters with family. Where to go? I needed three rooms last minute, and possibly more for out of towners. Glenn to the rescue. The Bentley, is a step back in time. Comfortable, and CLEAN. The rooms were on the small side, but we were there to sleep. The large wrap around porch provides... More

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
