A Dream by the Sea
609 Ninth Avenue
Located just off Main Street, this cozy inn, run by friends Michelle Sicilio and Carmela Lisi, features four elegantly decorated suites. Organic breakfasts can be enjoyed on the front porch. The inn is a five block walk from the beach and two blocks from Belmar Marina. High-season rates: $175-$265.

The Inn at the Shore
301 Fourth Avenue
Tom and Rosemary Volker have been welcoming guests to their Victorian gem for 19 years. Located two blocks from the beach, the charming inn has an inviting wraparound porch and 11 guest rooms, all with Victorian-period furnishings. High-season rates: $150-$295.

The Morning Dove
204 Fifth Avenue
The inn—with its ocean and lake views— was badly flooded by Sandy, but repairs and renovations are complete. Guests can look forward to central air conditioning and freshly painted rooms, some with hand-painted murals. Each of the eight rooms has its own theme. High-season rates: $195-$295.

Saltwater Inn
300 10th Avenue
New Jersey natives Marty and Joyce Riccio have given their recently renovated inn a tropical-plantation look in keeping with its location two blocks from the ocean. The inn has nine suites, including a family suite with four bedrooms and a living room. High-season rates: $200-$400.

The Tandem Bike Inn
603 10th Avenue
Renovated in 2011 by owners Anne Marie and Michael Hayes, this eight-room inn is walking distance to the beach and to Belmar Marina. Or ride one of the inn’s bikes (tandem or individual), available to guests for free. High-season rates: $170-$265.
