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...

What a wonderful 3 nights we had! The beds are so comfortable. The staff is so sweet and very helpful. Our stay included beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella and beach towels. As a mom who hates packing and unpacking along with getting all that sand in my car I was so grateful for them. The continental breakfast is very convenient...

Spent a great weekend at this beautiful Hotel/Restaurant in Bay Head, @ the Jer. sey Shore. Stayed in Room 409; comfy bed, great service and the food was delicious! Owner and staff made every detail a delight. Made me feel very welcome. Didn't want to leave. Will definitely be going back! Highly recommended; just a few steps from the beach...

Stayed at the hotel for the July 4th weekend. I have mixed feelings about the accommodations. The hotel is in desperate need of updating. My shower had mold in it and along the cracks of the floor. The only updated item in the room was the tv. With that said, it is a beach hotel so I expect less when...

This is our place to go and I am so glad we found it! We look foward to staying here a few times during the summer.They have good food and other dining places are nearby if you prefer various menus. Excellent location and steps away from a fantastic clean beach. Quiet and relaxing but close enough to Seaside Heights and...

Luckily we had an oceanview room(but the window was so dirty, we could barely see through it!) The room had no bedspread, no drinking glasses and stained curtains. Marks on the walls were painted over with paint that did not match. The blanket and sheets were very worn and should not be used in a hotel room. No one cleaned...

Let me start by saying that I have not visited the Grenville Inn in quite some time, however, in the past I considered the Grenville Inn as a place to dine for special occasions. I had several deaths in my family this year and it was too depressing to try an Easter celebration at home as was always family tradition....
