We've just returned from our fourth stay at the Sea Spray Inn. We look forward every year to returning, and love the food, the decor, the comfortable room, the inviting front porch, living room, and dining room.

A Gem of a BnB, A Gem of A Jersey Shore Olde Tyme Towne

My husband and I loved our stay here around July 4th Week. The Sea Spray Inn had: ~Great location and views. ~Wonderful foods and crumb cake. ~ Clean and cozy accommodations. ~ Great A/C ~Charming innkeepers and a sweet furry mascot! All this is Ocean Grove, NJ... a equally yummy, clean and charming "olde tyme towne." TIP: OG boasts the largest aggregation of Victorian era homes in the US. All of this, on the pristine New Jersey Shore. Wonderful. A Gem within a Gem.

Mary Ellen and Eric have thought of everything to make the Sea Spray a wonderful place to stay. Our room was beautiful and comfortable with a view of the ocean and the lake. We even had a little fridge, very luxurious bathrobes, beach towels, all the amenities. Breakfast was too delicious! Mary Ellen and Eric are so nice. Great location.

Super Sea Spray!

This is the perfect getaway, less than 1 1/2 hours from NYC. The innkeepers, Mary Ellen and Eric, are perfect hosts. Their Inn is beautiful and one short block from the ocean. Their breakfast and Saturday Happy Hour cannot be beat. I just had my second stay there, and I will be going back often.

Mary Ellen and Eric were very warm and welcoming. Breakfast was fantastic as well as the cheese and wine reception on Saturday evening. I really enjoyed the claw foot tub in the lavender room after a day at the beach, I slept like a baby at night. I will be making this my home away from home anytime I decide to stay the weekend down the shore.-Megan, NJ

Looking Forward To Another Visit

Returned home three days ago and I miss it and everything about the Sea Spray already. This was my third visit in eight months with each one spent in a different lovely and charming room. Whatever one you pick you cannot go wrong. They are all very clean and tastefully decorated. Mary Ellen and Eric are the most wonderful hosts making you feel welcome and right at home. Breakfast is so DELISH and YUMMY, it never disappoints with goodies baked daily and always something out of the ordinary served. In over 65 years never did I think I'd ever take a Jersey Shore vacation, but, the Sea Spray and Ocean Grove changed my mind. For all you animal lovers Katie(the lab) is just icing on the cake.

Great getaway!

We had a lovely time. Mary Ellen and Eric are friendly and helpful hosts. They run the inn very professionally but the ambience is relaxed and not at all stuffy. We arrived on Saturday evening to wine and cheese. They recommended a nice restaurant for dinner and we slept in a well-appointed room. The highlight was our fabulous breakfast, which we ate on the front porch looking at the water. Mary Ellen was prepared with delicious options to accommodate a gluten allergy. We were very pleased with our experience at the Sea Spray Inn!

A truly pampering experience!

Have been visiting Ocean Grove for years and stayed in several places; but the The Sea Spray Inn is a gem!!! The "Master Bedroom" was so luxurious, with a porch and ocean view. A super-comfortable bed with a relaxing, clean environment made our weekend getaway such a success. Mary Ellen and Eric are such gracious hosts; and Mary Ellen can really cook!! Relax in style- you'll be glad you did.

A wonderful B&B

The Sea Spray Inn is a lovely property with a great location and very welcoming, caring and attentive hosts. The room was very comfortable and clean with a very nice bathroom. The Inn is a short block away from the boardwalk and a 5-minute walk into center of Ocean Grove. The breakfast was great with wonderful home-made scones and crumb cakes and a fantastic pesto soufflé. All and all, a very pleasant and relaxing stay.
