Ocean Plaza in Ocean Grove, NJ

4.4 on April 26, 2016

Stayed for one short night in order to attend a show at the Stone Pony in Asbury. Was greeted by a very nice woman and got our keys. We spent very little time there but the beds were comfy, the bathroom clean, etc... In the morning we had coffee/juice/muffins/bagels for breakfast. It is set up on a lovely outside porch on the second floor. They also have a big container of M&M's in the living room area, and cups to put them in. Very welcome after a long night out!

A Great Place For Some Quiet Time!

The service here is outstanding. They will help you however they can. My room was comfortable and quiet and just right for what I was looking for. LOVED the fireplace on the dining porch. It was so cozy and warm and a great place to hang out. And the view of the ocean was a plus. I will stay here again and again.

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

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!

5 on August 31, 2013

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.
