Travelers' Choice
The free and easy feeling of a Jersey Shore getaway... from your rocker on our wide wraparound porch, the smell of sea salt in the air, the sounds of waves and gulls...the lightness and peace that come in a place that's distraction-free. Since 1880 The Inn At The Shore has been this special place for so many. Just two blocks from Belmar's beach and Boardwalk, and four blocks from Main Street and an eclectic, bustling downtown, The Inn At The Shore is a rare find: a bed and breakfast Inn owned and operated by lifelong hospitality professionals. New Innkeepers Bill and Linda Neely have brought new life and a classy vibe to Belmar's oldest Inn. The Great Room features bar seating, billiards, a big flat-screen TV over the fieldstone fireplace, and a wonderful music corner with piano, guitars and other instruments for the performer in all of us. The refurbished dining room features elegant seating indoors, with outdoor seating available on our Patio and Porch. Breakfast begins at 7:00am with a Continental buffet, then starting at 8am through 10:30am Chef Bill will try to make all your breakfast dreams come true with a you-name-it, cooked-to-order breakfast prepared exactly the way you like it. And, Bill always has a unique breakfast specialty up his sleeve if you're one who likes surprises! As the Neelys continue to revitalize The Inn At The Shore, look for exciting Event Packages highlighting the best that Belmar has to offer throughout the year. Bill & Linda are creating a new kind of B&B experience, and they invite you to come and see what The Inn At The Shore and beautiful Belmar are all about.

We were greeted by the owners upon arrival. The Inn is very well taken care of. Clean and decorated with sophisticated touches, but still quaint. Bed was comfortable. Made to order breakfast was delicious. Only two blocks from beach. Close to the shops along Main Street. We will be going back.

My husband and I recently spent 4 days at The Inn At The Shore celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. We have stayed at The Inn numerous times and have never been disappointed. Linda and Bill are caring and friendly people who always make you feel welcome-the perfect hosts! The rooms are very clean and the decor is inviting and tasteful. The wrap-around porch always allows for a sea breeze and the opportunity to chat with other guests. The beach is a short walk away, and the town is fun to explore. I must mention the delicious breakfasts that Bill whips up every morning and serves in the spacious dining room. Scrumptious and cooked to order. What an expert chef! We recommend The Inn to anyone who is looking for a fun and relaxing get-away. You will leave feeling like family!

This is the 2nd time we stayed at The Inn at the Shore & we’ll DEFINITELY be back. We celebrated our 60th HS reunion. The place is like a museum & the rooms were clean & beds were comfortable! But, the best is Linda & Bill the hosts! They are so warm, welcoming & accommodating. The cook to order breakfast each morning is spectacular! Bill is an amazing chef! They were even able to give me a to go breakfast on the morning I checked out in order to make an early flight! You won’t be disappointed. And it’s in walking distance to the beach!!

Did a three night stay in "Gables", which was just great. Back corner room, extremely quiet. Bill and Linda are great hosts and the breakfasts are outstanding. Very close to everything but also very quiet. Front porch is wonderful.

Linda and Bill were so friendly. My room was clean and quiet. I loved the porch and the breakfasts were so delicious. It was an easy walk to the beach but you could easily drive and park right at the beach. I would definitely stay again.

We think of this as our home away from home for the shore. This may be our 4th or 5th visit to the inn, and each time is better than the last. You can't beat the location, only a few blocks from the beach and sooo quiet, and the made to order breakfasts are beyond wonderful. Bill and Linda are just terrific hosts and always go the extra mile to make the stay perfect.. We used the beach passes and chairs (even on a cloudy day) and sometimes we don't even move from the porch. When I need a break it's the first place we think of.

- [ ] The hosts, Linda and Bill are genuine and truly accommodating. The inn is close to the beach and beach passes and chairs were supplied by the hosts. The Inn is clean and well kept with classical charm. There’s an inviting wraparound porch with well maintained shrubs, beautiful hyacinths in a relaxing quiet neighborhood. The rooms are decorated tastefully and we had everything we needed. Our stay was one night as we were in town for a show in Asbury, but wish we had more time! We were treated with an amazing “made to order” breakfast by Chef Bill, veggie omelette and French toast that was rockin! We enjoyed our stay and will be back!
