Saltwater Inn
Ranked #1 of 7 Belmar B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Arrived on Friday afternoon and was met by Marty and Joyce, the minute you walk in you feel immediately relaxed; soft music plays in the background, refreshments were offered before we even checked in and you almost feel like your being welcomed into the home as a close friend or family member. Marty quickly checked us in and helped bring our luggage to the room, everything was effortless.

Food was absolutely amazing, everything was homemade and delicious. We had a fresh herb quiche topped with bacon and skewered roasted peppers from the garden the first morning and cinnamon banana waffles with sausage and apple skewers the second morning.

The location is great, 2 blocks from the beach/boardwalk and 4 blocks from Main street both are very walk-able distances. If we ever find ourselves back in Belmar we will be staying at the Saltwater Inn again.

Tips for Belmar:

Bring any wine you want to drink with you the liquor stores were really over priced.

There is a coffee place "The Perfect Perk Cafe" about 1.5 miles north on Main st that has good coffee and they are open late (for those of you that drink coffee after 3pm...). Otherwise your other option is Dunkin (yuk!) and all the other local coffee shops close early.

Last one is there is a Vegan/Vegetarian restaurant called Kaya's Kitchen on Main st (Main and 10th just 4 blocks from Saltwater Inn) that was a nice surprise for us, we wanted something a bit lighter and on the healthier side, this place has a good variety of food and is reasonably priced (depending what you have). Sometimes you just don't want a burger,tacos or pizza ya know.

We had an excellent stay at Saltwater Inn. We were greeted by the Owner and he helped us with our luggage We had two terrific breakfasts and felt that the owners could not do enough for us The accomodations were very clean and we felt very comfortable. My wif and I would stay at the Inn any time we had occasion to visit Belmar or the surrouding area.

The breakfasts are fantastic. I find it hard to believe Joyce is not trained chef.
All our needs were met and exceeded.
Attended a wedding and staying there made it even more special.
Coastal Mist room has the most comfortable matteress!

I was looking for a weekend gateway for my wife on our 1st anniversary. We were both widowed and instead of 25th , we had out 1st. Two blocks from the beach and boadwalk gave us an enjoyable afternoon on a sunny day. The Sea of Love room was the best you could ask for. The room was so relaxing and the atmosphere was very peaceful. The gourmet breakfast was amazing. Joyce and Marty did everything they could to make our stay memorable. They are very hospitable and do everything they can for their guests. The plan I had for my wife and anniversary was all fulfilled at the Saltwater Inn.

Right from the start Joyce and Marty helped me plan a perfect weekend during which my girl friend and I got engaged .they helped in every way from suggesting a wonderful restaurant, to make sure champagne was in the room when we returned from dinner and Marty ready with his camera took several really good photos of us that night and the next morning . The inn is charming and you can tell that a lot of love and soul went into creating the entire inn. The inn was very clean the sea of love room we stayed in was wonderful with a very comfortable mattress .
The Inn is on a quite block with quick access to beach and Main Street . All and all mission accomplished! We have a memory of a life time.

I stayed at Saltwater Inn in late summer. I went looking for peace and serenity and found exactly that and more. The inn was very clean, light and airy, not at all stuffy as some B&Bs can be. It was modern yet had a welcoming, relaxing and calm vibe about it. The beds were temperpedic and very comfortable. The owners, Joyce and Marty, were nothing short of spectacular in every way. They exceeded my expectations and were the quintessential hosts. They went above and beyond to make me comfortable. Joyce's breakfast was delicious. Marty was great at recommending restaurants and even got us a table last minute at a restaurant that was already booked. I had a great meal on my last night at the shore thanks to him. I would most certainly return.
