Next town over from Spring Lake, Sea Girt or Point Pleasant, but a lot more fun. Make us your fashionable Jersey Shore address! "Finally, a great place to stay!," says one TripAdvisor review. "Exquisite...definitely a five-star," says another. Its Nantucket-style architecture, residential feel and quality furnishings are a departure from outdated accommodations in the area. Walk around village shops, restaurants, theatre or street fairs. Walk or bicycle to beach.

Rooms were nice and clean, the cleaning woman was friendly and helpful. The owner, however, was absolutely terrible and extremely rude. For that reason alone, I'll never return. Also the returant below, Blend, was by far the worst dining exprience I've ever had. Food was not good, very small portions, the servers had no idea what they were doing. Soap dispenser in the bathroom was out of soap, I mentioned it to our server and she informed that it's always broken. Gross!
Reviewer compliments rooms and housekeeping, but we are unsure to respond on rudeness of manager as there is no mention a specific deficiency or a service not provided. Restaurant is not operated by the Inn, but we will share comments with Chef/Owner of Blend, which is very well-known for its quality.

Really enjoyed this place. Clean, comfortable beautiful room. Was there overnight for a local wedding. It was quiet, safe and in a great area with surrounding restaurants shops and cafés. They do not serve food at the Inn but it's above a beautiful Bistro. The no front desk or check in was odd at first but was also really nice to not be bothered. We really loved the fireplace and balcony. I would definitely return. The only thing I wish was better was quicker responses to my phone calls and emails.
We have had some phone issues in the last month as we ported our lines to another carrier. We apologize for the the slower than normal response.

We recently stayed at the Inn on Main for a wedding. At first, the completely electronic way to check in and out was a bit interesting, but once we saw how well it worked, we kind of liked how there wasn't really a lobby to walk through. The rooms were clean and cozy. The innkeeper's listing of local restaurants and to dos was very helpful. We had breakfast at two of the local eateries and loved both! The whole town is very casual and comfy, perfect for a quick weekend getaway. We were sad that we were unable to try dinner at the restaurant below since we were in town for a wedding and both evening meals were taken care of by wedding events. We would highly recommend staying at the Inn on Main. This place is great for a romantic getaway at the shore.
We promote a residential-style hotel and are glad you took a liking to it eventually.

Inn on Main does not provide food but there are great restaurants within walking distance.

Very cute high class rooms with cute details right on Main Street. We really enjoyed our stay but there is no front desk, no staff at all which is weird but doesn't effect the rooms.
We are a residential-style hotel and we do not have a front desk which we believe unnecessary in a 12-room Inn. This keeps pricing reasonable which is well-commented on this review site.

I would stay again at the INN when in Manasquan. Room was very nice. Our only heat was the fireplace. Since no personnel are physically present I had to call their office which I believe is in Cape May NJ to ask the heat be turned on instead of the air conditioning (stay was October 11 and 12). The heat never came on. For the price you pay I would expect to have ample parking but the parking lot is shared with town houses and spaces are limited and first come first serve. Although I found a space, both mornings my car was blocked in by delivery trucks. Since no one is at the hotel, nor the restaurant (10AM), it is very frustrating. Running around for 20 minutes trying to find the driver and getting wet was unacceptable especially since I was on my way to a wedding. I called the Inn and left a message as usual. I received a call back promptly but I was made to feel that I was out of line because this type of a complaint had not happened in the 5 years they have been in business. The person did say they would take it up with someone at the restaurant. Overall the Inn and room was clean and met my expectation..
We apologize to this guest who was inconvenienced by the restaurant delivery truck. We do not operate the restaurant, but investigated the matter with the restaurant owner, the driver and townhouse residents who witnessed reviewer's outburst. The heavy rains aggravated the situation, but rest assured, the Inn could handled the situation more amicably. As explained to the guest, no such thing has happened before and the Inn does not see a recurring problem of blocked vehicles.

Stay here often , always great,so convenient to everything ,most things a nice walk away. Like that the NJ Transit train station is right nearby,you can catch the train up and down the line.
A hidden treasure lies in the little Manasquan train station 1 1/2 blocks from the Inn that shuttles visitors from New York City. We have seen an increase among arriving guests that have left their cars behind to enjoy the walk-around, bike-around nature of Manasquan Main St and its surroundings. Thank you for your feedback.

Recently stayed at the Inn on Main. Bed was extremely comfortable and room was very clean. We also ate downstairs at Blend and it was delicious and the hostess(chefs wife) was very helpful with menu decisions. It's true there is no checking in or out and we did not see any other people there. This was fine with us as we were only there for the night, know our way around and were celebrating our anniversary. I liked the location nears stores, bars and resturants. Breakfast at Max Devro was yummy and has a very interesting menu. Will definitely consider staying here again.
We are proud of our professional operation at the Inn and equally proud of our colleagues at Blend that produce a fine dining experience. Thank you for commenting.

My wife and I have been coming to IOM for several years and are never disappointed.
As simple as your review sounds, for which we are grateful, it is quite difficult to maintain a consistently superior Inn. Thank you for letting us know we are succeeding in this regard.
