Babylon, New York
Reviewed 5 September 2012

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....

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...

This bed and breakfast is clean, could use a bit more sprucing up, but the beach is the lure that brings you here, and that is stupendous. I'd say this is a very fine place for the area, and it would be difficult to find a better B&B or hotel in Bay Head. The towels and toiletry items are passable....

Just one block from best beach on Jersey Shore, this is an oldie but a goodie. The breakfast and service are first rate. They provide coffee and tea and a snack throughout the day which was lovely. Glen, the innkeeper is most gracious and accomodating. The outdoor shower is not to be missed. And they provide bikes and beach chairs,...

Thank you for the kind comments. The staff and I work very hard to make our guests comfortable and cleanliness is our top priority. I agree that wicker would be a better choice for keeping in character with the inn. The problem is that the maintenance/replacement cost is high in the salt air so we opted for very durable Adirondack...

My wife and I were looking to spend some quiet time in a quiet setting on the New Jersey Shore. If you havent made it to Bayhead, you should give this roughly 1.5 mile stretch of coastal beach a try and make sure you stay at The Bentley Inn. This B and B sits a block away from the very...

Thank you once again for the kind words, it is greatly appreciated. I would like to make clear that the kitchen is actually open from 8:30am to 10:00am (with fresh coffee starting at 6:30am). Don't want to mislead anyone. Thank you

A late review, but I feel the need to write one, since I've been using Tripadvisor so often to check places out. I stayed here on Valentine's day 2011 (we ate dinner at the Labrador Lounge) and had a great time. I booked our stay over the phone, and had no issues doing so. I live in Toms River, but...
