I was thoroughly happy with my choice of the Bentley Inn. It was a last minute getaway at the end of the year and I was unsure of what would be available at this time. The rooms were as charming as they were fresh and immaculate. The owner Glenn was warm and welcoming. It was a delight from the moment... More

Our stay couldn't have been more enjoyable! Glenn was friendly, helpful and went out of his way to be an amazing host, not just an innkeeper! The Bentley Inn is spotless and cozy. The breakfast was super and we are looking forward to our next visit.

The Bentley Inn is a BB gem on the New Jersey shore between Point Pleasant and Seaside Heights in Bay Head. Our stay was after Labor Day, considered off season in this area, which resulted in a great value and relatively empty inn. The building is a majestic "old lady" reminiscent of Victorian mansions of yesteryear. The stay was further... More

Lovely quiet town after Labor Day, just a block from the ocean. Shared bathroom, great breakfast. Nice place. Glen was helpful and place was clean. One room had super comfy bed and the other needs a new mattress really bad!

We had one of the smaller rooms and had to share a bathroom, which we were a little hesitant about, but it worked out fine. From our room we could go out onto the wrap around porch which was very nice. They did have a hair dryer in our room, along with toiletries, but needed a larger mirror and I... More

Thank you for taking the time to write. I'm sorry you had a hard time with the WIFI. I could have helped you with it if you had let me know (usually a reboot of the system is all it takes). We do plan on putting more power strips in the rooms to make it more convenient to plug extras... More

This particular trip was our first experience with a B&B and The Bentley was a charming way to introduce us to something other than hotels. The owner was personable, helpful and the place is beautiful and comfortable. We enjoyed the shared porch and short walk to the beautiful beaches as well as the proximity to town. Lots to see and...

This was our third time at the Bentley. There is so much to love here, starting with the 2 minute walk to the uncrowded beach. Our room was super clean with airconditioning that smelled fresh (not musty!). The 2nd floor has a huge wrap around porch with ocean breezes- great for your morning coffee, or just relaxing. We love that... More

Thanks Pam, we always enjoy seeing you come back! Our road noise is lessened this year because the road is brand new and definitely much quieter. I should note too that we actually serve breakfast until 10am but our guests are welcome to relax in the dining room as long as they like. Looking forward to seeing again, Glenn More
