“Fall beach getaway”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

We have been coming to the Bentley inn for years, and wouldn't stay anywhere else. The rooms are cute and the wrap around porch is great ! Glenn is so nice and pleasant. The breakfast is terrific! We always meet the nicest people there as well. Look forward to coming back again next year a few times. Thanks for another terrific stay!

Room Tip: Rooms with direct porch access are nice!

I heartily recommend the Bentley Inn as a pleasant and friendly place to stay at the beach in Bay Head, NJ.

Glen, the host, is friendly and looking out for guests' desires to have a hearty breakfast, early coffee, and free bikes and locks to explore. He also has a stock of beach chairs, beach towels, and good advice on how to enjoy a weekend by the sea.

Room Tip: If quiet is a concern, look for a room near the back, away from Main Ave.

We only stayed for one night, and the house was in a good location...near beach and bay. Bay Head is a lovely victorian town, and we'd never stayed there before. Our room opened out on to a nice porch. A glider and nicer seats would really make it lovely out there. You get a good deal here on the off season. Breakfast was made to order: Caramelized French Toast for me, and Western Omelet for hubby. The inn keeper is very nice. I'd go there again, but not for the summer seasonal rate.

Rooms, shower and bathroom were clean and very small. Bathroom soap provided was tiny. TV was a least 20 years old and also small (12 inch screen?). Location near the beach was great and the breakfast was also good but for $350 a night I expected more.

We stayed just one night at the Bentley Inn but the owner was very nice and welcoming. The location is excellent - a few blocks from the beach. The breakfast was hearty and made to order. We used the adequate outdoor facilities on the day we were leaving so that we could squeeze in an extra day at the beach. Our room was fine with good A/C and space. The BI is a good place to stay if in the Bay Head area.

Room Tip: Our room with private bath was worth the extra dollars.

My wife and I have been doing our mid-summer "anniversary" long weekend here for 5 years. (this summer was 35th! ) Glenn is very accommodating Innkeeper. Nice to have a menu selection for breakfast. Staff is efficient and friendly. Bay Head is nice and quiet beach. - less than 2 blocks away. Convenient deli a few blocks north. If staying - I recommend the Shipwreck restaurant in Brielle, about 10 min. north on 35, just under the northeast side of the Brielle Bridge. -- Decor/setting not bad - and the food is Excellent!--

Thank you for the nice comments. I need to make it clear to future guests that beach badges are returned with the keys at check-out at 11am. If you would like to use the beach after check-out, daily beach badges can be purchased for $7 apiece at the B.H.I.A. which is located 3 block from us. You are welcome to use our outdoor showers and the hall lavatory all day on the day of departure. This is actually a money savings over traveling to a different town and paying for badges, parking and bathhouses. Our beaches are clean and quiet. Please note that room 6 actually does have a private bath.
