Due to a death in the family, we booked a room at the Inn. A friend in town graciously offered us their home for the week, so we attempted to cancel. However, since it was outside of their cancelation policy, they refused to refund us a penny. I personally will NEVER give this heartless owner my business again.
The hotel is adorable. Small and safe. Our room had a gas fireplace. Didn't have to move the car all weekend. We walked everywhere. The beach and inlet were about a mile walk. Lots of restaurants with outdoor seating. A great place for a quick getaway. You checked into the room yourself(code on door)so we never saw any hotel staff. There was an issue with our shower head, we called a number that was given to us via email and they moved our room to accommodate us with a better functioning shower.
VISITORS BEWARE! No lobby, no on-site management Calls answered by leaving a message-Good luck for same day reply. Example-Paid entire bill in full more than a month prior to our arrival. I was charged a separate fee of $39.07 on August 3rd, a day before arriving. Tried for 5 days to get an explanation-telephone messages and e-mails and no answer from ANYONE. Stayed at the Inn on 8/4-8/6/2020. During power outage (1-1/2 hrs after arriving)-no A/C, no elevator, no electric, no hot water, owner compensated our bill only $50 per night. I expected more than that, possibly, (1) complimentary night. Also, due to Covid-19, requested no maid service, yet our bed was made the morning of 8/5. SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESS SOMETIMES DOES NOT PAY!.
The hotel is in the center of town. Parking is right behind the Inn. The room - 304 - has two queen sized beds and a small baloney. The owner was extremely thoughtful in helping unmake the arrangements so we could see out Mom in Assisted Living. The Blend Restaurant on the street level is wonderful - fully outside and the food is top notch. Highly recommend this for any visit to the Manasquan area.
although were only stayed two nights and less than 48 hours, the inn on main in manasquan was wonderful. la arge, spacious, beautiful, and clean room was waiting for us. beautiful decor in the halls and the rooms. lots of little extras left in the room and at your door every evening. once you book on line, there is keyless entry into the building and your room.......worked seamlessly. great location, parking in the rear. would definitely stay there again.......btw, great restaurant below
