A Lovely, Clean Inn, Centrally Located!
Posted Aug 13, 2016 on Hotels
We would stay again. The room was small, but with a big bathroom. The lovely Inn is kept up well, but an older Victoria-style home -- like an oversized B&B. Very clean. Breakfast was sufficient, but it is touted as a European style continental breakfast. I have dined at many European B&Bs, and the continental breakfasts there include cheeses & meats. This breakfast included yogurt, fresh fruit, bread choices & pastries. Not as expected but sufficient and held in a nice room. We did not receive any maid service while we were there, but maybe that is their policy for a two night stay. If we had asked for something, we would have received it. Beach badges and towels were included. There is a great private pool for only Inn guests! Loved it. The Inn is centrally located, about 2 blocks from the beach and a 2/3 mile walk to town on a gorgeous block. There is plenty to do in the area as it is near Manasquan, outlet shopping, Point Pleasant, etc. Many excellent restaurants in the area. Front desk service was fine, but there was a negative discussion at the front desk, in front of my husband and a couple of other guests, about "bennies" (those visiting the shore for the weekend, but not raised at the shore) and day-trippers which was not very complementary. I am from the shore area, and my husband is a "bennie," so we get it, but it is not nice to hear as the Inn's income is coming from us! Certainly was not something that would prevent us from returning.
