I liked the waves breaking on the beach nearby. I would come again and again.

I don't want to sound like a commercial for this place but honestly it is That Nice! The entire facility is spanking clean. The rooms smell like fresh ocean air. You can walk out the front door and see the ocean - one short block away. The surrounding town is both elegant and quaint. The room we stayed in was huge, not by B&B standards but by large hotel standards. Everything in the room worked, like the fireplace, the jacuzzi, both tvs/dvd players. Not just clean, white glove Immaculate. The service was always there but invisible - meaning we wanted for nothing but they weren't hovering all the time. I've been to countless B&Bs and by a long shot this place tops 'em all. It's hard to put a price on mental health but for the boost we got from staying at the Avon Manor Inn this weekend I'd have paid twice the cost! I highly recommend it.

I don't understand what people see in this place. Yes, the location was great. After that it was all downhill. Tired and uncomfortable furnisings, unemptied ashtrays on porch, not well kept up and cleaned. I was very unimpressed with the property and will not return.

The Avon Manor Inn was a great place for a short break. It is close to the beach and restaurants. An added plus was the passes to the Atlantic Health Club in Manasquan. This was the best exercise facility I have ever seen. My wife enjoyed the spa while I got a great work out. We would return to the Avon Manor Inn just for the use of this facility. The blueberry pancakes were excellent but you will need a trip to the Atlantic Health Club if you eat them all.

We were here the week of June 18th. For most of the week we had the inn to ourselves, which made it seem even more like home.
Kudos to JIM for his wonderful service, sense of humor and patience with our visiting family of small children that came and went. Including our use of the living room and large screen tv.
The close proximity to the beach was well worth the price of the room, besides an excellent excellent breakfast.!
I would agree with an earlier review that said the snacks were not fresh or replenished, that could be improved.
We plan to return next summer.

This inn was a REAL disappointment. Yes, it was located one block from the beach, and it had a wonderful verandah. After that, it was all downhill. I found our suite VERY uncomfortable, with nowhere to really sit down, and not even a lamp in the "livingroom", only a very bright overhead light. We had to bring in a lamp from the bedroom. Rooms were so teeny that in our party of 3 one of us had to sit on the flooor at all times as there was nowhere else in the livingroom to sit. The only decent room in the suite was the bathroom. The venetian blinds were filthy, the air conditioners were very very loud. The futon in the livingroom was SO cheap and uncomfortable that my poor cousin could hardly sleep. The ashtrays on the porch were never emptied, there were boxes that had been delivered that sat on the front porch for 3 days right in front of the entrance that were never taken in the house. In the dining area for snackers there were jars with a lonely pretzel or 2, a lone Oreo, and a few soggy animal crackers that were never refreshed. The carpets were dirty and everything had just a run-down look to it. The inn has upscale pretentions and we certainly paid top dollar, but the experience was not a wonderful one. I have stayed at many inns that were much better run, better furnished, and just more comforatble. I was surprised at this, because it had gotten such good reviews. I know that to be near the beach in season one has to pay and I don't mind doing that, but to pay $350 for such a shoddy place seemed to be taking advantage of the location and not really caring about the accomodations at all. I will never stay at this place again.

We stayed in the separate cottage that is on the grounds of the B&B. It was perfect for us because we are a family with a 5 and 2 year old. The cottage was wonderful, with 3 bedrooms upstairs and a full kitchen, living and family room downstairs, 2 bathrooms, one 3/4 upstairs and one full downstairs. When you stay in the cottage, you don't get use of the B&B, for example no breakfast, but we knew our kids couldn't handle a B&B that well, so it was perfect for us.

The cottage was comfortable, gave us plenty of room to spread out. We were mostly there to visit family, but I bet it's wonderful in the summer when it's beach weather. I can't speak for staying in the B&B itself, but I would definitely recommend the cottage.
