Our recent stay at the Bentley Inn was terrific. Glenn the proprietor is a natural--he's very attentive to the needs of his customers, is truly a personable guy, and has a real knack for making one feel right at home. We stayed in the Jeffrey Dennis room, which is located in the rear of the building. It had a full... More

The innkeeper, Glenn, was gracious and made us feel welcome. The Inn is an old rennovated boarding home. Personally, I am not into nostalgia and "cute." The room was cramped but it had a cramped bathroom. Larger rooms share bathrooms. I gave up sharing when I left the military. I enjoyed the large porch. The location is convenient to the... More

Thank you for the kind words. We try to make everyone feel welcomed, well cared for and at home. The Inn is decorated with it's time period in mind and was actually never a boarding house. It was built as a summer home in the late 1800's then became an inn in the 1920's. Our rooms are small (the idea... More

I had visited Bay Head as a kid and was interested in visiting there again on a recent trip east. My wife and I stayed 3 nights and Glenn the inn keeper could not have been more responsive and helpful. We had a great room on the second floor with a bath and direct access to the veranda. While they... More

We loved staying at the Bentley Inn. We rented two rooms, one for my husband and I, and the the other for our three children. We shared a bathroom between us as the rooms were next to eachother with the bathroom connecting them. First, the rooms are immaculate. Beds are very comfortable. The rooms are nicely decorated with a vintage,... More

After a very stressful week, I decided to get away by myself for a night and enjoy the beautiful weekend weather at the beach. I booked the a room a the Bentley because it is a bit closer to home than the beaches I usually go to. The price of a room with a shared bathroom, after labor day, on... More

We do agree that maneuvering luggage can be a pain sometimes. The Inn is very old and at this point changing the stairway is not an option. If a guest needs help with her suitcase, we are happy to help. We were under the impression that everyone knew the ocean was to the east (we are only 3 houses from... More

Located just a block from the beach, this Bed and Breakfast is a jewel of a find for individuals or family looking for a quiet stay at the New Jersey shore. Pricing includes beach badges, towels and chairs, and after you include the abundant breakfast options, and late afternoon delicious homemade treats - the room rate is more than fair.... More

Fabulous location (beach across the street) and amenities (beach chairs, towels, beach access, lite breakfast included). Rooms were comfy and clean .... Glenn was super helpful and friendly. Recommend to anyone interested in getting a true Jersey Shore experience.

The Bentley Inn is truly special and the best in Bay Head! Glen is wonderful and so attentive and the Inn is absolutely charming. Just steps from the beach and restaurants. A real gem at the Jersey Shore.
