Our first bed-n-breakfast experience was wonderful. Bill and Linda Neeley were wonderful hosts. Breakfast was scrumptious. The walk to the beach was very close. The Neighborhood was quaint. The locations was great. We're looking forward to seeing it in the Spring or Summer. We will be returning very soon!!

Went down to the shore to visit friends and stayed at the Inn. Bill was a most gracious host and the man can cook a mean omelet. Place is clean and on point. Enjoyed it very much and will be back and will tell friends.

Met up with friends from Miami at The Inn at the Shore for a long weekend together. It was such perfect weather and we got up early each morning for a cup of delicious coffee before walking on the boardwalk. Only 2 blocks from a gorgeous beach and a lovely walk along the shore.

Bill makes the best breakfast ever!!! The Inn at the Shore is very conveniently located in Belmar. Just a few blocks to the beach and many great places like The Anchor Tavern and La Dolce Vita restaurant. The place could use a coat of paint and the beds were a bit hard but the owners make up for that with...

Could not ask for better place, lot of history, every room is personalized and perfectly clean. Fantastic hosts, great breakfast. Walked to the new walkway along the ocean every morning, minutes driving to great restaurants on Main Street. Bill and Linda: you run a great operation, thank you for all you did to make my week end very special. Wow.

Charming warmth and unbelievable service, and Just a stones throw away from Ocean Avenue. Each room has its lovely individual personality - comfortable and bright. The beautiful structure is just one part. The foundation is built on the owners (Linda & Bill) that hosted us with the highest attention to detail. Breakfast is made to order, and sooo good. No...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The free and easy feeling of a Jersey Shore getaway... from your rocker on our wide wraparound porch, the smell of sea salt in the air, the sounds of waves and gulls...the lightness and peace that come in a place that's distraction-free. Since 1880 The Inn At The Shore has been this special place for so many. Just two blocks from Belmar's beach and Boardwalk, and four blocks from Main Street and an eclectic, bustling downtown, The Inn At The Shore is a rare find: a bed and breakfast Inn owned and operated by lifelong hospitality professionals. New Innkeepers Bill and Linda Neely have brought new life and a classy vibe to Belmar's oldest Inn. The Great Room features bar seating, billiards, a big flat-screen TV over the fieldstone fireplace, and a wonderful music corner with piano, guitars and other instruments for the performer in all of us. The refurbished dining room features elegant seating indoors, with outdoor seating available on our Patio and Porch. Breakfast begins at 7:00am with a Continental buffet, then starting at 8am through 10:30am Chef Bill will try to make all your breakfast dreams come true with a you-name-it, cooked-to-order breakfast prepared exactly the way you like it. And, Bill always has a unique breakfast specialty up his sleeve if you're one who likes surprises! As the Neelys continue to revitalize The Inn At The Shore, look for exciting Event Packages highlighting the best that Belmar has to offer throughout the year. Bill & Linda are creating a new kind of B&B experience, and they invite you to come and see what The Inn At The Shore and beautiful Belmar are all about. ... more   less
