This is a gem of a find in Atlantic Highlands. We wanted somewhere within easy reach of NYC without having to pay New York prices. This place ticks all the boxes. It is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated with large rooms and comfortable king sized beds. All rooms have a balcony and pleasant outlook. There are various teas and coffees available...

We stayed here in 2015 and came back as we liked it so much. The staff are freindly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are boutique style, beds luxurious, comfortable and huge! The furniture and rooms are sumptuous, clean and well cared for. The location could not be better - there is a ferry to NYC...

The hotel was clean, the room was large and the staff was friendly but I think that the hotel was overrated and expensive for what we got. It is in a good location with many good restaurants within walking but it wasn't better or nicer than another hotel I stayed in the next night for $125 cheaper.

The Blue Bay Inn is a darling boutique hotel in Atlantic Highlands and is walking distance to the ferry to NY City. Rooms are comfortable and well-appointed; staff is extremely accommodating. The owner of the Inn also owns two restaurants: the Copper Canyon which is attached to the Inn and the Gaslight at the end of the block. We keep...

I stayed here to be near the beach and the bike trail. It is located in a cute one street town that ends on the water. It's seemed brand new as everything was clean and fresh. The front desk was nice as well. The Execute Suite is really nice and I recommend it highly. Full kitchen with bar table top...

The Blue Bay Inn is a modern boutique hotel situated in a quaint area of the Atlantic Highlands. The location was perfect as it is convenient to several restaurants, shops and a movie theatre. Both the hotel's exterior and interior were well maintained for an 11 year-old property. Our room was spacious, modern and well appointed. The bed and pillows...

We had a lovely night here for our 20th. Staff was wonderful and room was comfortable and very clean. TV was not updated, but we would not have even turned it on if not for the Olympics. Keurig and ice water in lobby a nice touch too!

Lots of good information from other reviews. Staff was very helpful in describing the nuances of each room to me, so don't just book through a site - call and you won't get disappointed! I knew my 2nd floor parlor king with balcony to the street but without refrigerator was going to have better views and a little more noise,...

This hotel makes you feel welcome the moment you open the door. It is beautifully decorated and the staff is more than accomodating. The free coffee and pastries were amazing after our great night sleep. The staff was quick to give directions and recommendations and they took the time to talk to our child. We stayed in the two bedroom...

We checked in after a long day on the beach. Our room was so cute with two double beds (all they had left) and it was ice cold which was great since the weather was over 100 degrees that day. The room was clean, the sheets and bed were sooooo comfortable, and we just really enjoyed our time there. We...
