“A great bed & breakfast”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

My wife and I stayed here recently, and we thought it was really great. The owners, Kathi and Phil, are both very nice and helpful. Breakfast was delicious--a different quiche each day, and some other tasty options, including some fantastic croissants. We stayed in room 8, which has a queen sized bed, a small sitting area, fireplace, and private bathroom. The TV had pretty much all the premium cable channels--HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Starz, etc.--so we were able to catch up on all the Dexter episodes on Showtime that we've been missing up in NYC due to the Time Warner/CBS dispute.

The Carriage House is two blocks from the beach, and they have beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, and towels that can be borrowed for the day. They also sell reduced price beach passes for $5 instead of the $8 that you pay at the beach. A very quiet, relaxing place for a vacation.

Room Tip: Room 8 doesn't have access to the balcony, and it's on the third floor, but it's a decen...

really nice place, rooms are a little small, but most of these b n b's have small rooms, very quaint and elegant though. owners were very attentive, and offered themselves for anything, badges, chairs, coffee, suggestions to restaurants - whatever. breakfasts were good, keishes (which i don't like,) but lacking the basics - toast, hard rolls, scrambled eggs, bagels and butter/cream cheese. coffee should have been a little stronger or darker. overall, not bad, one block from beach. very reasonably priced.

Room Tip: double room facing the ocean side is best.

We were guests at the Carriage House from 7/15 to 7/18. The experience exceeded our expectations. Kathi and Phil are gracious hosts. Phil's dining recommendations were excellent. Breakfast at the Inn was superb: quiches, homemade croissants, blintzes...The Inn is clean and well kept. Beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels are conveniently provided. We will make the trip from Kansas again!

Perhaps even better the second time around. Our two night escape to the beach couldn't have been much better. Located just a half city block from the wide beach and a block from Main Street and it's shops and cafes. Also, a short walk to Asbury Park's boardwalk and restaurants.

The innkeepers are accommodating and friendly. The rooms are pretty typical B&B, each one slightly different, with very limited storage for clothing, but tastefully decorated and with new tvs. Our second floor room also had a door to a sitting porch, which was nice for relaxing with a book .For me, the highlight is the breakfast. I don't think I've ever had two gourmet breakfasts that would have me returning because of the food.

Room Tip: A room with access to the upstairs porch is nice.

The Carriage House B&B is located 2 blocks from the beach and one block from Main Avenue, where there are a bunch of shops and restaurant.

We were greeted by owners and check in and we given a free-upgrade to a room with a balcony and a terrace. A nice touch.

The room was an adequately sized. Each room is decorated in a very homey and nice way. I like that each room was decorated a bit differently.

The B&B has a lot of nice touches, like coffee and tea available. Plus snacks and sodas available for $1.

I was very impressed by the breakfast. All homemade, high quality. Even homemade chocolate croissants.

I would stay again.

We went there for a weekend getaway from the city. The place was much better than we expected. It was very clean, and the rooms had a lot of characters. The owners were friendly and dedicated, and their efforts show in the whole building. The food the next morning was exquisite. It was fresh, delicious and very gourmet-like. The location is also very convenient, as it is only a ten minute walk to Asbury Park where there are more entertainment at night. Overall, this is a place I highly recommend.
