INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2016

We come home once a year, and try to see the whole family. There are around 20 of us to get together in NJ. We hate for one family to have all the work at home, so we asked if everyone would like to meet up at the Jersey Shore. We then had the daunting task of finding a hotel... More

This is a lovely B&B. It is not fancy, but has character and charm. It's location is a block from the most gorgeous of beaches. The staff is very helpful, and breakfasts are quite tasty. A great place to unwind!

The Bentley is a great place to stay for a vacation at the beach. The owner is very welcoming, and so is his staff. And it's only a block away from the beach, which the Inn gives you badges for. They allow you to use their fridge to store food, and there's an ice maker as well. Rooms are cozy... More

We stayed 4 nights at this Inn and loved every moment. The room was comfortable, the beds were great and everything was spotless. The complimentary breakfast was fantastic. Glenn is quite a cook and it's great to be able to order what you want, not what they want to make for you every day! Very close to the beach and... More

A preseason mid week visit to the NJ shore. The Bentley Inn was beautiful. Our host was wonderful. Breakfast choices were plentiful, and delicious. Special dietary needs were graciously accomodated. Would certainly consider stay at The Bentley Inn again.

Overall, The Bentley Inn is a well-kept property in a nice location. The website description boasts "bay views" from our room; absolutely not true. Our room was rather small and the bathroom barely adequate. Shower was just a trickle of water when the room next door was running theirs. Towels and linens were not up to the standard we have...

We thank you for your comments. We are always looking to improve our services. We Apologize right up front for the “Bay View” remark in our advertising. It was true at one time, but that’s no excuse. By way of explanation, through the years the trees on the bay side have grown to block the view. We are now working... More

This was our first time at The Bentley Inn. It's an historic house which is not far at all from the beach. Which is great!! My room was cosy I just didin't like the fact that we had to share the washrooms with strangers. But it all work out! The Inn was very clean and peaceful and the staff were... More

I have been going to the Jersey shore for many years and have had the pleasure of staying at the Bentley Inn several times. Each time the service was excellent, the rooms were impeccable, the breakfast was delicious and the hospitality of Glen the owner, was unforgettable! By far the best b&b I have stayed in at the jersey shore!

From the super-hospitable/friendly staff to the perfect over-easy eggs in the morning, A+. This clean & quaint, yet spacious B&B has all that you need to have fun in the sun...and just a block from the beach! Thank you for reminding me how nice and civilized the Jersey Shore can be...
