This hotel needs a lot of everything. Services were nothing the room was not clean. The room was never done when we were there. The restaurant is a joke. The place needs management. The only good thing is the location. Someone should buy it they would make a fortune.

Location! The two stars or for the location and kind service. This is a wonderful place if you're looking for a beach stay. They provide beach towels and chairs and access to the beautiful sandy beach one block away. Lots of surfers and great place for swimming. Rooms - The whole place seems to need a serious scrub. The sheets...

Went there to spend weekend with family. I over paid big time. The only perk about this place is that it is located close to the beach and the surrounding area and houses are beautiful. This place is run down and poorly ran. They said it was booked but we never saw anyone. I had clothes thrown away in garbage,...

I wanted to get away for a few days by myself and this was perfect. Everyone was so friendly when I arrived for my stay.... Explaining the free continental breakfast ( till 11 am, so you could sleep late ), and free use of beach badges, chairs and towels.. The beach was only around the corner and one block away....

Perfect for a weekend getaway. Right off the beach with a great restaurant. Great location. Point Pleasant a short drive away. Everything you could need within walking distance. Perfect for couples or families.

We remember the Grenville as a beautiful place. What happened?? Our room was dirty. The futon was covered in sand and stains. The bathroom was dirty with hair all over the floor and in the shower. We ate dinner in the restaurant hoping the food would be what we remembered. Nope. Food was awful. Service was terrible. For the price...

Go here if you don't expect frills and updated everything. Go here if you want a clean, quiet room with a room AC, and a quiet uncrowded beach. Walking distance from shops, restaurants and Mueller's bakery! Staff is friendly. Short drive to many restaurants and the Point Pleasant boardwalk. Bay Head is a beautiful town of cedar shake sided homes...

Stayed in Room 201. It was a basic accommodation without a view of the water. What made it special was a morning visitor. Left the room for the sunrise at the beach and again for breakfast in the morning. Upon returning to the room on both occasions, the toilet seat was up and bathroom door was almost fully closed. This...

Upon arrival to this adorable hotel, we were upgraded to a larger room! The staff was amazing. The rooms are the perfect size and equipped with air conditioners!! Beach chairs and towels are also provided which was great. The continental breakfast was your classic breakfast. It's about a 20 minute walk to the boardwalk. Perfect for friends or family!

Room on second floor. Dirty room with dusty window sills. to add to the chagrin, housekeeping skipped us one day. Sink leaked so stuff kept in cabinet was soaked. Old aircon that caused condensation in the room. Staff were friendly but not terribly competent. Did not try food so no comments there. Not coming back given the plethora of options...
