Fantastic Inn, we stayed in a suite that had a sitting room, efficiency kitchen and a beautiful balcony overlooking the ocean. The room was extremely clean, probably the only thing dated was the room carpet, but it is a Beach Inn. The balcony view was so nice we brought dinner

We saw lots of 5 star review and though the negative reviews were just cranks (okay-the person who called the decor "tacky" might have been cranky). There were a lot of pluses--the breakfast was definitely A+, no doubt. There were nice touches, like water infused with fruit in

Stayed here in one of the Lodge Rooms and had a superb break. The rooms are perfect for a couple with all of the required facilities. The location is a block away from the seafront and boardwalk and ideally located for a wander into Asbury Park or simply to the beach. The

It's the in the second block from the beach, short distance. You can see the ocean from the porches. However, I'm not sure what's going on with this property. George Mapp was the manager/inn keeper and his name is no longer on the website at all. And you can't make reservations online currently. I will miss George and his hospitality, but I hope The Inn will remain an option as a place to stay.
