We had a mixed experience at the Bentley which has mor of a motel than B&B feel about it. Set right up against the only main road, expect noisy traffic at all hours of the day and night. Still, the room we stayed in at the back of the building was ok from a noise standpoint. It was clean but... More

It is true that we are on a main road with a speed limit of 30mph and our rooms are small. Ironically, these are some of the things that many of our repeat guests like as they have the feel of the Jersey Shore. Comparing us to a motel is unusual as a stay at The Bentley Inn includes unlimited... More

This is an excellent Bed and Breakfast and we would recommend it to anyone coming to the Bay Head Area. Our host was so friendly and helpful. We felt as if we knew him forever. The hotel is immaculate. The breakfast was outstanding. We are looking forward to a return trip.

Glen, the Innkeeper at The Bentley is was very accomidating to husband & I over the weekend. Never having an evening off followed by the following day, we truly needed time alone & away from the "everyday". Being in the hospitality business brings challanges to your family life....so very little time together. Sometimes it is too easy when you have... More

Ideally, the best part of staying at a B & B is the breakfast, combined with the comfort of your room, followed by the care and attention to detail by the Inn Keepers, as well as amenities. We found, however, that most of the reviews we had read, prior to, and following our stay, were somewhat off the mark. Our... More

The inn is on a busy street and the noise does bother a few guests (a/c drowns out the noise on the 30 mph road). Unfortunately, toilet replacements cannot be made while the room is occupied and it's true that our showers are 30"x30"... that's all we could fit into this 120 year house but they have excellent hot water...

This was our first experience at a B&B and what a wonderful experience it was. Upon our arrival we were greated by Glenn (the Inn keeper) who immediately made us feel so at home.

Staying at The Bentley Inn is a wonderful, relaxing experience. Innkeepers Glenn and Janet and their staff do everything in their power to make sure that all is perfect. My husband and I have stayed here several times over the past few years and have always been very satisfied. There are towels and chairs for use at the beautiful beach... More
