Wonderful weekend!

5 on September 09, 2014

we had a fantastic stay at the Sea Spray Inn. We arrived to a warm welcome from Mary Ellen and Eric. We were given a t our and escorted to our room. We immediately were invited to join everyone for the Saturday wine and cheese gathering, before venturing out to dinner. We enjoyed meeting other guests and getting recommendations from everyone for restaurants and sights to see. We returned from dinner and spent time on the roof top deck, enjoying the sea air and the "super moon". We had incredible breakfasts on the porch and beautiful days on the beach, one block from the inn. Our room was delightful and had every convenience imaginable. We tremendously enjoyed our anniversary weekend at the Sea Spray Inn and can't wait to return.

Wonderful Stay at the Sea Spray Inn

4.0 on September 09, 2014

I had a wonderful stay at the Sea Spray Inn. This was my first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast and it was a great experience. Mary Ellen and Eric were great hosts and they made me feel comfortable and welcome! I especially loved the soy yogurt parfait and Mary Ellen's homemade granola. She accommodated my breakfast needs since I wanted to eat healthy. I will be returning especially because they are only 1 hour away from home.

Our Fourth Stay at the Seaspray Inn

5 on August 31, 2014

My college friend, her sister, and I enjoyed our fourth annual summer reunion at The Sea Spray Inn this August. My friends, who live in New York and California, visited the New Jersey shore as children and love the chance to return. This trip is a wonderful chance for me to have a real seaside vacation even though I live in nearby Middletown. We all appreciate Mary Ellen and Eric's warm hospitality, their inviting and spotless inn, our pretty rooms (Rosebud and Toile, which has a view of the ocean), and the scrumptious breakfast on the porch with a view of the ocean. We recommend The Seaspray to anyone looking for a perfect stay in quiet and beautiful Ocean Grove any time of year.

Great B&B

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
