Monroe Bay Inn is a great place to stay. The innkeeper, Shirley, is full of information and makes great breakfasts! Our room and the entire Inn is spotless. Such beautiful art (some of it is Shirley's!). The beds and pillows were comfy. Nice fluffy towels and plenty of water pressure. There is a small fridge in the upstairs sitting area... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and an excellent one at that. I enjoyed talking to you, especially about Colonial Beach, and hope to see you again, either here or at your place. My handyman is on his way to "fix" room 1. I appreciate the feedback. More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2015 via mobile

Shirley is such a joy and a great host. Shirley made our stay there beautiful and pleasant, the atmosphere is so open and fresh. Exhilarating very therapeutic. The artwork is amazing at the B&B, you can walk to the back side of the beach to the boat piers, and walk to the dockside restaurant and have an amazing meal at... More

I believe we had room #1 with a king size bed/bath. Clean, comfortable, and relaxing. A lot of terrific local art work displayed throughout the home. Shirley made us feel right at home. We were the only guests for the 3 nights so it was probably quieter than usual. We stayed here soon after the labor day weekend so the... More

We stayed at the Inn 4 nights. The room was clean and comfortable. The house is lovely. There is a front porch with a glider, comfortable great room and another sitting room upstairs that is cozy. Shirley is a wonderful hostess and breakfast was delicious every morning. Can't wait to return!

It's a shame that this B&B isn't on the waterfront, but it's only a short walk to the water, and the B&B is comfortable, clean, and spacious. The bed was good, the shower worked fine, and Shirley makes a home made breakfast. There are no tea and coffee making facilities in the bedroom, and although there's a little guest sitting... More

Spent this past Saturday night at this inn, our first stay here. We will be back! The place is exceptionally clean, the bed was very comfortable and the front porch alone is worth the stay. We didn't have breakfast there Sunday morning because we had already made other plans, but we'll definitely do that next time. The Inn is located... More

The Monroe Bay Inn is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, but still is only three blocks from the beach We stayed one night in mid-May of 2015 and found the site immaculate and welcoming. The walls of the traditionally furnished house are hung with works by area artists in a variety of styles, along with a few table sculptures,... More

Quick getaway for the weekend from DC, Shirley was great, friendly, hospitable and full of accommodations. We booked a day in advance as they had room over the Memorial day weekend. Room was very clean, peaceful and great breakfast. Don't skip out on the breakfast, it was better than some of the restaurants.

Stayed two nights and enjoyed everything about this B&B. Room was clean/spacious and the inn provided nice touches such as wine glasses, a keurig, etc. Breakfast both mornings was delicious and our hosts (Shirley then Ethel) made sure there was plenty to eat. The art was beautiful and a cool, unique aspect. Would recommend renting a golf cart to cruise... More
