Travelers seeking an off-beach Jersey Shore experience combined with personal touches should consider J.D. Thompson Inn, southern Ocean County. Innkeepers Catherine and Lorenzo are kind and gracious hosts who provide great leads on the best local restaurants and activities, as well as made-from-scratch, made-with-love breakfasts.Their midweek packages also keep this cozy mid-1850s stagecoach inn competitive with area chain hotels. In the spirit of an honest review, however, I need also to share three mild concerns experienced during my two-night stay. Although my wife and I slept well on a wonderful mattress, loud traffic from East Main Street (Route 9) was disturbing until well into the evening. And though convenient to restaurants and the Tuckerton Seaport, some of the inn's grandeur (check out the backyard gardens) is lost due to its location in Tuckerton's nondescript central commercial area. Finally, I'd like to see the inn reduce its collection of Victorian decorations that add, in my opinion, more "stuff" than charm. These concerns aside, Tuckerton is an ideal base for the shore visitor more interested in history and nature than tanning, and Catherine and Lorenzo will welcome you to J.D. Thompson Inn as they would their family.
