Perfect Setting

5 on August 22, 2014

Catherine and Lorenzo were so accomodating to us and our two young grandsons. Our 5 year old still talks about how delicious those pancakes were on our vacation. I would highly recommend the JD Thompson Inn to anyone! And the town of Tuckerton is adorable too!

We stayed 2 nights and had a wonderful time. Breakfasts were delicious, everything was very clean and innkeepers were very hospitable.

Another great weekend at JD Thompson

Great Stay, Highly Recommended

My wife and I had a wonderful stay. The room was clean, nicely furnished and, to our amazement given that the inn is right on the main street, quiet. The breakfasts were great and there were always tea, coffee and snacks available. Best of all were our hosts. Catherine and Enzo were friendly, helpful and obviously devoted to their craft. The inn is a great base for exploring the Pine Barrens and the shore. We highly recommend it.

Weekend Get Away

It was really a pleasant stay at J.D.Thompson Inn. The room, the breakfast, the hospitability of the owner... 100 scoring without question!

Great Place to Stay

Wonderful little inn. Just what a B and B should be: friendly and hospitable (but not intrusive) with charming decor and delicious breakfasts! Very reasonable rates. Hostess provided us with beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas to go to the shore as we hadn't planned that in our stay. We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and local seafood restaurants. Highly recommend!

Outstanding all the way through!

Feels weird rating all 5 stars but that is what it deserves. Rooms, service, value, cleanliness and breakfast were all Outstanding. I am thinking of where I can criticize the place but I cant think of anything. Great dinner options in the area and a great jumping-off point for both Atlantic City and LBI. The owners could not have been nicer or more helpful in every way. We'll be back!!
