We stayed at the Inn on Main for two nights. The managers have obviously thought out the details carefully--the "pin code" entry system (no front desk) works well, the rooms are attractively furnished and spotless, the bed triple-sheeted with excellent quality linens and five pillows--two firm, two soft, and one long rectangle great for reading in bed. The bathroom was... More

We thank this reviewer for the glowing comments on the hotel, except for the bed. Previous reviews have positively commented on our bedding, one as recent as a month ago. I am preplexed that the reviewer prefers to save up his comments for a negative write-up on TripAdvisor, undresses the mattress, checks out the label - all this rather than... More

We loved the privacy that comes along with no check in! The rooms were enormous, tastefully decorated, and extremely comfortable. The fireplace was charming, the beds were comfortable, and the number for contacting the management should something go wrong was prominently displayed. Manasquan is a sweet little town with a couple of nice shops and a great diner! I doubt... More

Would love to know the manufacturer of the matress, it was wonderful! Very nice to be able to take the elevator to the ground floor and enter the Firefly Bistro where we enjoyed a delightful meal.

Many thanks for your comments. Stearns & Foster is the brand for our pillow-top mattress. "Very clean" is often the comment we hear from so many reviews and I apologize that we failed to do just that for you stay. I have shared your comment with the room attendant. Regarding breakfast, it is explicit on our website, and through the... More

The lobby smells of cooking grease. The rooms are large and bathrooms are, too. Booked hotel for access to fireplace but it didn't work. Rooms are accessed by code that's sent to you. No staff, no phones so no way to get help.

Today, I inspected all 12 rooms of this beautiful inn and turned all 11 fireplaces with a flick of a switch. All of them roared to life like a brand new car. If a previous guest fiddles the knobs and closes the vent, the fireplace will not start for the next guest, but this is not what I found in... More

The Inn on Main lived up to expectations. The room itself felt like a master bedroom, not a hotel. It was very clean and quiet. Granted, you could hear the bass from the speakers in the restaurant down stairs but that was not too distracting as the speakers were shut off at a reasonable hour each night. The bed was... More

Location was in a great little town, rooms were clean and spacious, little extras were appreciated (wine opener and glasses, coffee pot, refrigerator, fireplace). 1 mile from beach and one block from from local train stop! Restaurant below the Inn was exceptional and Trattoria (near the train station) was an unexpected delight.

Rooms are located in the heart of downtown Manasquan. Clean, bright quiet room on third floor with high ceilings. However, due to entire wall of windows and glass sliding doors during the month of March, room was a little cool which was rectified by turning up the thermostat. Draperies that cover sliding doors are beautiful, but not light blocking. Access... More

I booked a weekend getaway for my girlfriend and I as a Christmas present, and it turned out better than I ever could have hoped. Our stay was incredibly private (only interaction was with the very nice housekeeping staff, who offered to turn down our room), and we also didn't hear a peep out of the other guests the entire...

I enjoyed the Inn because it was private and quiet which is precisely what I needed. Getting in to the room was a little confused at first but once I did that I found my way around the town(went to Delicious Orchards and the Outlets). I would definitely recommend, perhaps next time I will do the summer time so I... More
