If you want quiet, private and clean this is the place to be! One little draw back is you may have to share a bathroom. But can I tell you that I don't think anyone used the one that was next to our room. Girlfriend was a little bummed about it but I didn't care. It really is like the... More

The Bentley Inn is located two very short blocks from the beach in a quiet neighborhood. The friendly staff provided excellent care and service in this beautiful vintage B&B. Although a bit small, the room was immaculate and comfortable. The many amenities, such as beach tags, chairs, etc. were a nice bonus and helped create an overall idyllic and lovely... More

Glenn, the innkeeper, is a perfect host and a fabulous breakfast chef! We enjoyed our stay immensely. There was nothing Glenn did not think of and he was resourceful and a perfect host. The old inn is charming, the porches welcoming. Room and bathroom were clean, towels and sheets spotless and the entire atmosphere delightful. The breakfast bacon was the... More

The Bentley is a great B & B starting with Glenn the Innkeeper. He is courteous, considerate and runs a relaxing and well maintained Inn. The rooms are good sized (peeked into many of them during cleaning), the porches comfortable, rooms nicely furnished and everything was immaculately clean. It is hard to maintain a place at the shore that does... More

Glenn and Janet, the owners of the Bentley Inn in Bay Head, NJ, put so much thought into every aspect of their guests' stay. A "common use" refrigerator is in the dining room area of the Inn, to keep a bottle of wine or sandwich chilled, fully enclosed outdoor showers (with shampoo and body wash) for that last shower before...

Thank you for the kind praise. We try to keep it "homey" and convenient for all of our guests. And we feel lucky to have those hard working young people here. They are truly an asset to the inn and guests and I thank you for praising them. I hope to see you again soon. PS: The noise from Route... More

Glenn, the Innkeeper is very friendly and very accommodating. He made me a special breakfast every morning, as I have food allergies. The sitting room is lovely, the breakfast delicious, and the rooms are clean and inviting. This is the the third time we have stayed here, and will return again. Bayhead is a beautiful little beach town that has... More

Stayed one night at the Inn. Traditional "bed and breakfast" feel. Room was very clean and comfortable, overall, however the bed was quite firm. Balcony is lovely. Location is great as far as beach access. The Inn is located on busy Main Avenue in Bay Head, so rooms in the front of the Inn will be a bit noisier due... More

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!
