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 Its Nantucket-style architecture, residential feel and quality furnishings are a departure from outdated accommodations in the area.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.

Last minute booking and first trip to Manasquan. We were pleasantly surprised by the location of the Inn and the room. Room 302, which faced Main Street, was very lovely. Access in and out of the Inn was easy and quick. There is an elevator. Small fridge with bottled water and coffee maker in the room was a nice touch. Parking was not a problem, but might be dicey once beach season begins. Beach is a short drive (1 mile) away. Plenty of places to eat in the area. Try Blend, the restaurant on the ground floor. Noisy place, but food is very good (having a restaurant on the ground floor did not in any way affect the atmosphere in the Inn).

The Inn is lovely. Stayed when it first opened. Still lovely and well maintained. However, the absence of any visible staff left me with a cold feeling. No one to ask for assistance, help or say "Welcome." No one answers phone…except to say make reservation on-line. Not the warm, homey feeling of a nice B and B or high end hotel where you are made to feel special.
We're glad Reviewer found the Inn lovely and well-maintained. The Inn is not a B&B, which is the Reviewer's preference. Our website and confirmation emails reinforces this to adjust expectations accordingly. Many customers seem to love our boutique inn since 2009 when we introduced it as a limited-service, residential-style, self-check-in small inn. Repeat customers comment on the privacy we offer. There is staff daily at the Inn. There is staff always at Blend Restaurant on the ground floor. Reviewer does not specify which service we failed, if any.

Great location close to shopping, dining and many beaches within very short drive. Interesting no front desk check in, a bit impersonal, but easy. The room was nicely appointed 2nd floor "Main Street" view- we looked out to the gas station across the street. The road outside definitely has some noise, could be soothing or annoying depending on your personality. The room had a toasty fireplace and ceiling fan. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom nicely updated. My issue was the old, shag carpeting was stiff and "crunchy"- glad I brought slippers!!! I think most of the other rooms had hardwood floors, so I think I would have preferred that. It was just me husband, the "rules" weren't an issue. One other caution- any specials you find on the internet take a screen shot. When I inquired about a seasonal discount, they indicated to pay first and then they would reimburse later. They did, however they changed the website and decreased the discount. I didnt say anything because I never took a "screen shot" of the website before they changed it overnight. There were a couple interesting dining choices, "Surf Taco"inexpensive fresh delicious and "Committed Pig" went their twice for breakfast, unique huge portions and delicious. Hope this was helpful.
Not sure which room this was, but we assure customers that our carpeting, area rugs or wood floors are maintained regularly. Perhaps, that may be the reason why the carpet was "crunchy," which happens when the shampoo dries off. We traditionally, re-vacuum to soften it some, but may have missed this step. We apologize.

My husband and I stay at Bed and Breakfast properties every vacation and get-away weekends. We consider Bed and Breakfast properties to be just that,...bed AND BREAKFAST. This property is an Inn,...located in town on a busy street. They do not serve breakfast, nor offer gift cards or coupons for breakfast at any local establishment. We've stayed at other properties advertised as Bed and Breakfast properties that did not serve breakfast, but gave us gift cards to a nice coffee shop next door. So we didn't mind. The Inn is clean and nice,..but if you're looking to be greeted by someone and have any interaction with others,...this is NOT the place. It is a room with a bed.
We have had great success in our limited-service, upscale, boutique inn concept now running with great success since 2009. It appears you inferred that "INN" automatically includes breakfast, which it does not in our case. Our website and confirmation email are very clearl on this topic. Yes, we agree that while our FaceTime with guests is limited, we are however complete in our amenities and responsive to every phone call. Thank you for your feedback.

Beautiful room. No onsite dining, but located on Main Street with plenty of dining options just out the front door.
Not sure if guest missed Blend, a major restaurant on our ground floor? We do not serve breakfast, but is available immediately next to us on Main St.

We have been visiting Manasquan Beach for years, but, this is the first time we stayed in town. The Inn on Main is unique, such that there is no check in. This is convenient, however, if you need something there is no one around. We stayed in room 203. It was smaller than I had been anticipating. However, it was clean. The bathroom is large and there is a nice gas fireplace. This was useful since it was absolutely freezing outside!! We booked this room because of the balcony. BUT the door lock was broken and couldn't enjoy this feature. There are plenty of choices for restaurants within walking distance. I think we would book again.
Sorry for the lock which we found functioning; however, guests do find it hard to operate these Pella patio doors, which is reason we posted instructions next to it. A phone call to our main number may have helped your situation. Thank you.
