Stayed at the Bentley when we were attending a wedding in nearby Point Pleasant. We know the area well and felt right at home. The innkeeper was pleasant and helpful and gladly put on a fresh pot of coffee for us after a trek from Connecticut and a delay on the parkway on the way there. Our room was clean...

We come home once a year, and try to see the whole family. There are around 20 of us to get together in NJ. We hate for one family to have all the work at home, so we asked if everyone would like to meet up at the Jersey Shore. We then had the daunting task of finding a hotel...

We just got back and really enjoyed our stay at the Bentley Inn. Glenn was a super host. The rooms were clean and comfortable. No complaints here! The location was very close to the ocean and a short drive from the many restaurants and boardwalk in Point Pleasant.

The management/ owner knows how to treat their customers. I was greeted with a very personal and friendly welcome. The breakfast is satisfactory and there are always refreshments available. It is walking distance to the beach and passes are provided. The room was in good consition just slightly outdated with the tv. Lastly, they offer the outdoor shower for usage...

This is a lovely B&B. It is not fancy, but has character and charm. It's location is a block from the most gorgeous of beaches. The staff is very helpful, and breakfasts are quite tasty. A great place to unwind!

The Bentley is a great place to stay for a vacation at the beach. The owner is very welcoming, and so is his staff. And it's only a block away from the beach, which the Inn gives you badges for. They allow you to use their fridge to store food, and there's an ice maker as well. Rooms are cozy...

We stayed 4 nights at this Inn and loved every moment. The room was comfortable, the beds were great and everything was spotless. The complimentary breakfast was fantastic. Glenn is quite a cook and it's great to be able to order what you want, not what they want to make for you every day! Very close to the beach and...

A preseason mid week visit to the NJ shore. The Bentley Inn was beautiful. Our host was wonderful. Breakfast choices were plentiful, and delicious. Special dietary needs were graciously accomodated. Would certainly consider stay at The Bentley Inn again.

Overall, The Bentley Inn is a well-kept property in a nice location. The website description boasts "bay views" from our room; absolutely not true. Our room was rather small and the bathroom barely adequate. Shower was just a trickle of water when the room next door was running theirs. Towels and linens were not up to the standard we have...

We thank you for your comments. We are always looking to improve our services. We Apologize right up front for the “Bay View” remark in our advertising. It was true at one time, but that’s no excuse. By way of explanation, through the years the trees on the bay side have grown to block the view. We are now working...
