Located one block from the ocean, this grand century-old hotel was completely restored in 1994 and provides the perfect setting for vacations, relaxing getaways, business travel, family or group get-togethers and weddings. The Plaza is located on historic Ocean Pathway, just a short walk from downtown Ocean Grove with its many unique shops, restaurants and cafes, and walking distance to Asbury Park with its numerous restaurants, art galleries, antique shops and boardwalk. Open year round, The Plaza includes a warm inviting parlor, 16 distinctively decorated guest rooms and 3 exceptional suites. Its numerous balconies and wrap around porches provide magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean, the famed Great Auditorium and the town's extraordinary Victorian architecture. NJ Transit and bus transportation from the City are within walking distance. Attention to detail with a personal touch is our way of making The Ocean Plaza your private beach house any time of the year!

February Getaway

4.6 on February 26, 2015

This is just the nicest place to stay. Everything is so elegant in a comfy way. The staff is ever helpful and makes you feel like you're home. We go at least twice a year February and June. While the town is much quieter in winter there are still so many things to do and the staff will help you find them all. Right off the ocean and just a lovely secret..............I highly recommend it to anyone !!!!

beautiful B&B

3.8 on September 02, 2013

We have stayed at the Ocean Plaza for the last few years in Ocean Grove. The staff is friendly and accommodating in all aspects. It is quick walk to where the beach is and to the great auditorium of Ocean Grove. We highly recommend this place to anyone visiting this area .

Home away from home!

I just got home from a very restful stay at The Ocean Plaza. This was my first time staying in Ocean Grove and choosing this B&B was an excellent choice! I'm booked for same time next year same family room on second floor! The staff is great led by Vicki, Sasha & Rick!! One of them is always there! Even for an emergency phone # at front desk to call Rick at any time of night! Food on second floor wrap around porch with views of ocean was great! Great coffee, special teas, cereals, muffins, fresh fruit and mini pastries! Coffee and tea available 24/7! Like I said home away fom home; slept on memory foam very comfortably from first night!

Best family vacation ever

4.4 on June 17, 2010

We overran the inn with family members in town for a wedding. The management could not have been more accommodating or welcoming. They were fantastic! We brought our grandkids. The management found us portable cribs and high chairs. Our suite had a full kitchen which made traveling with little ones much easier. The Inn is beautiful and a wonderful place to gather. We enjoyed the beach, the town, the porch, the breakfasts, everything about it. We will definitely return and tell everyone about it.

Great Place to Stay!

4.0 on July 04, 2009

We were a large group there for a dance competition. Occupied all but 3 rooms so it felt like we were staying at a friends house. Everyone loved Buff, the dog, He kind of roams the place which is really cute. Bob, the owner, is very careful not to let Buff bother anyone, but we loved him. The place is lovely and the breakfast each morning was great! Some rooms were on the warm side, so I heard. Mine was really cool and comfortable. I think some of the charm was that we did take over the place and sort of hung out like we lived there. I would absolutely stay there again.

Excellent Stay

We found our stay at this Inn very comfortable, friendly and pleasant. We definitely want to go back next fall. The location to the beach and the view of the ocean from the porch was just wonderful - truly relaxing and memorable.
