The Blue Bay Inn is a modern boutique hotel situated in a quaint area of the Atlantic Highlands. The location was perfect as it is convenient to several restaurants, shops and a movie theatre. Both the hotel's exterior and interior were well maintained for an 11 year-old property. Our room was spacious, modern and well appointed. The bed and pillows...

We had a lovely night here for our 20th. Staff was wonderful and room was comfortable and very clean. TV was not updated, but we would not have even turned it on if not for the Olympics. Keurig and ice water in lobby a nice touch too!

Lots of good information from other reviews. Staff was very helpful in describing the nuances of each room to me, so don't just book through a site - call and you won't get disappointed! I knew my 2nd floor parlor king with balcony to the street but without refrigerator was going to have better views and a little more noise,...

This hotel makes you feel welcome the moment you open the door. It is beautifully decorated and the staff is more than accomodating. The free coffee and pastries were amazing after our great night sleep. The staff was quick to give directions and recommendations and they took the time to talk to our child. We stayed in the two bedroom...

We checked in after a long day on the beach. Our room was so cute with two double beds (all they had left) and it was ice cold which was great since the weather was over 100 degrees that day. The room was clean, the sheets and bed were sooooo comfortable, and we just really enjoyed our time there. We...

I found this hotel by chance as we have been trying various ones on the shore, prices are in line with others and for the quality of the hotel, pricing is good. Also there was no minimum 2 night stay over the weekend. Check in was easy, so was parking across the street in the municipal parking. The room was...

We spent one night at the Blue Bay Inn in early July and it was a surprisingly nice experience. Booking was seamless via TripAdvisor/Booking.com even with a change of our dates and a revision of the reservation. We travelled for a short getaway to the Sandy Hook area for the beaches and a bike tour through the historic military installation...

Situated on a lively road in Atlantic Highlands, Blue Bay Inn puts you near the water and at the heart of an artsy, casual village. Outside, we appreciated the open courtyard, which was set up for drinks and dinner on Saturday night. Inside, the lobby was comfortable and equipped with two Keurigs, a cold server of fresh water and a...

If you want to enjoy the water, good seafood, a safe and simple bike trail without big crowds--even on a warm June day--then Atlantic Highlands might work for you. I know my Jersey friends (I was visiting from CT) said that the area was known as sort of an odd stepsister to the cool parts of the Jersey Shore and...
