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...

I have been going to the Jersey shore for many years and have had the pleasure of staying at the Bentley Inn several times. Each time the service was excellent, the rooms were impeccable, the breakfast was delicious and the hospitality of Glen the owner, was unforgettable! By far the best b&b I have stayed in at the jersey shore!

The Bentley Inn is by far the most charming B&B in New Jersey. I have been coming back every summer for almost a decade and the only negative thing about the place is my depression when I have to leave. The rooms are very clean (and sweetly named with a sign on each door after family and friends of the...

We loved our weekend at theBentley Inn. GLenn and his staff were so friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed our pretty room, the yummy custom breakfast each morning and the easy access to the beach. The only downside was sharing a breakfast with another room, would have been no issue if we were sharing with family but odd with strangers. We...

We have been going to the Bentley Inn for years. It is and has always been a taste of home away. The immaculate rooms, service and location in this lovely beach town make it a must stay when in Bay Head.

We recently stayed at the Bentley Inn and thoroughly enjoyed their warm hospitality coupled with the superb location one block from the ocean. We have been fortunate to visit the Bentley Inn on other occasions and find the tranquility and friendliness rarely matched in any seaside settings. i
