Its close to many restaurants, amenities etc. The room was adequate and there was direct access to a wrap around balcony on second floor. Very nice. I had only two issues...the coverlet was stained, obviously so, BUT the sheets themselves were clean! Was surprised to be informed that there...

My 4th time back to the The Bentley Inn. Comfortable, clean, with plenty of places inside and out to get comfy with a good book....and quiet enough to take an afternoon nap. I always feel instantly at home here. Every morning I make a cup of tea and go across the street to the beach to watch the sun rise...

I have stayed at the Bentley in quite a few times. It is a quiet beach retreat in Bay Head a short block from the ocean. My most recent trip was in January and I was so glad to hear that it was open for business and survived the hurricane. Glenn the owner is always friendly and accomodating. The rates...

Glenn, the Innkeeper, could not have been more nice to make us feel at home. Rooms were clean and neat. Plenty of privacy. Breakfast was wonderful, with a wide selection of choices. We would definitely come back!

The Bentley Inn is one of the best places to stay at the Jersey Shore. There is the Jersey Shore and than there is Bay Head. The town of Bay Head has the feel of Nantucket or New Port. The Inn itself is so charming. The Inn is located about one block from the beach. The rooms are well decorated...

We've been staying at the Bentley Inn for years and love it. It's a charming b&b! A very short walk to the beach, the Bentley offers excellent breakfasts and the innkeeper couldn't be more hospitable. The rooms are quaint and clean, and the breakfast area is wonderful. Our family members have stayed at the other inns in Bay Head, but...

I stayed here based on Trip Advisor reviews of this property and was disappointed with the room and more importantly, the cleanliness of the room. The headboard was stained and the sheets stained, as well. The carpets are worn and stained and not very clean, as well. The room also did not have a closet, only a small armoire with...

I heartily recommend the Bentley Inn as a pleasant and friendly place to stay at the beach in Bay Head, NJ. Glen, the host, is friendly and looking out for guests' desires to have a hearty breakfast, early coffee, and free bikes and locks to explore. He also has a stock of beach chairs, beach towels, and good advice on...
