It began weeks before our arrival , with several telephone conversations with the staff to gather information, make room reservations and dinner show reservations. Upon arriving at Elaine's, we were greeted at the parking lot by a pleasant gentlemen named Mark, who set the tone for our visit. Parking and early check-in was incredibly quick, easy and greatly appreciated after... More

My fiancee and I stayed here for a one night stay. Making the reservation, the woman I spoke with over the phone was so helpful and efficient. I was very excited for our stay. When we got there, we had our own private parking spot (which is marked with your room number). Our room was on the third floor, which... More

We went for the Dinner Theater Show only. The show was smart and funny. The actors all very talented and you could tell they enjoyed working together! A good meal and servers were great! Over all a very pleasant evening of entertainment at the Jersey Shore!

Elaine's is a marvelously unique experience for anyone who enjoys B&B's. The rooms are fantastically appointed in Victorian style with beautiful beds, elegant lighting and fascinating accessories. Do not miss the magnificent porch on the second floor, complete with charming rockers. The staff is welcoming and helpful in every way. An excellent breakfast is included and the restaurant also serves... More

On July 24th we had reservations by the beach for dinner and switched them when we heard the live musicians playing at Elaine's. It was such a great experience right from the beginning until the end. We didn't want the night to end. The hostess was very nice, friendly and accomodating. She gave us the perfect table on the porch... More

Made a reservation over the phone,drove three hours to get there and they told us we didn't have a room. They made a mistake on the date and were very rude when we arrived. Make sure you get a confirmation in writing. They still charged us for the room. Took 2 months to get my money back from my credit... More

We stayed in Room 12. The room was clean but crowded, due to large beds, and little walking room. The wifi was limited but abundant on the porch upstairs. Breakfast was included in the price--and delicious! The wait staff was terrific. The inn was not haunted, and I would stay there again! Very pleasant stay and accommodations:)

Many friends from many different states met at Elaine's and stayed for two nights, August 2nd and 3rd. The room I stayed in was very comfortable, Room #3. The first night we were there, we enjoyed the rocking chairs on the second floor porch and the live music was very nice. The food at the Inn was very good, and... More

I had the pleasure of spending two nights at Elaines recently, with a group of friends. There were 14 of us who met there from 7 different states. We chose Elaine's based on reviews that we read on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. We also were looking for a place that did not require a 3-night minimum stay in the... More

Rooms are clean and decorated very nice. Great breakfasts out on the porch. Our waiter "NICK" was great !!! From the moment we sat down (and we were a group of 14 ) he came right over to us and offered us fruit for the table. He never rushed us and was so pleasant. I loved having him wait on... More
