16 year customer

My wife and I have been staying with Jennifer since the first year she opened the Inn. It wouldn't be Summer without at least one long weekend. Her motto is "Arrive as strangers and leave as friends". And this is more than just a motto, it's the way she does business.

Repeat Customers Since the Grand Opening

My wife and I have visited the Inn every year since it opened (16 years, I think). Actually just arrived home from one of our visits.Staying with Jennifer is like visiting family. Only better. And she surprises you every morning with a different home made breakfast. Great location, too. Less than 1/2 hour to Atlantic City. You won't be disappointed.

Had a wonderful stay at Inn The Gardens B&B in Ocean City. Our hosts were very knowledgeable about events, directions and regulations around the New Jersey Beaches. They were very friendly and sociable with their guests. Would stay again in a heartbeat!!!

Great charm, awesome hospitality

We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment for 2 nights. We were so pleased with the room, the hospitality, the ease of booking. My family of 4 had a wonderful experience and will be returning to the Inn (without a doubt). A big thank you to Jennifer for being so wonderful and giving us so much information. Breakfast was also very good! Loved our experience at the Inn B & B.

Two sisters, lifelong OCNJ-goers, LOVED INN THE GARDENS B&B

5 on July 25, 2014

This was our first time at Inn the Gardens. We have stayed at numerous B&B's in OCNJ, and have rented condos over the last 30 years. Jennifer and Carlos are wonderful hosts at their B&B. We were there for almost a week in early July and stayed on the third floor front room with the private porch. Jenn and Carlos keep their inn spotlessly. The beds were comfortable and Jenn even uses fragrance and chemical-free laundry detergent she makes herself. This is one talented lady!. The lack of a parking lot at the Inn is not a problem at all. We always had a spot even when the Inn was full. The breakfasts were terrific with plenty of fresh fruit, yogurt, home made breads and a main egg dish, coffee and tea. Walking to the beach was a joy, even with beach chairs, bags, towels, etc. as the walk allowed us to soak in the beauty of the homes and gardens of the North End. Nothing was too much trouble for Jennifer and Carlos. Everyone who stays here is respectful and "gets it" that this is Jennifer and Carlos' home as well as a B&B. As a final note, if you are looking for glitzy decorating, designer bedding, or upscale showers, then you may want to go to a hotel in Atlantic City or pay three times as much for a B&B in Avalon or Cape May. An earlier reviewer said Inn the Gardens is more like being at your grandmother's house. We agree. Inn the Gardens is an inexpensive way to spend a few days or a week in the most beautiful section of O.C. Jennifer and Carlos' kindness comes to them naturally and is shared with all of their guests. We thank you both. We look forward to seeing you next year. Nancy and Karen

Scrumptious value in Ocean City

5 on July 12, 2014

11 years and counting as a repeat guest. Why? Value. Location for sure. Comfortable rooms. Main reason?? The food and hospitality! The Blueberry Stuffed French Toast is a must have. But, don't miss Carlos famous home fries. Latin eggs are tremendous as are the thick fluffy flavorful waffles. Absolutely the finest Bed and Breakfast when you visit Ocean City. Give Nina the Innkeeper dog a scratch. Jen and Carlos will greet you warmly and attend to your every need. The slogan is "come as strangers, leave as friends" and I assure you this will be your experience.

My wife had the opportunity to stay at the INN THE GARDENS B& B, We can honestly say we had a wonderful time. We stayed at several B & B in the past, so it is easy to rate. Every part of our stay was a perfect score. Jennifer, the Innkeeper, is a terrific hostess and we could not ask for more. Every part of our stay was top notch and we highly recommend this inviting Bed & Breakfast. Their telephone number and website info will remain on our "contact list" for future use. -----John & Rebecca

A Hidden Treasure

4.8 on September 04, 2013

My son and I recently visited Ocean City for 2 nights. I have never stayed at the north end of OC after having come here many summers as a child. Jennifer and her husband Carlos and their dog Nina truly do have a hidden treasure. The rooms are nicely decorated, each has a refrigerator and is air conditioned. They also have windows to open to get the ocean breezes. The breakfasts were different each day and very good. We both appreciated the open conversations with other guests and Jennifer at breakfast. We have been in other B&B's where the conversation is very limited. Jennifer is extremely helpful with questions or if you may have forgotten something. I forgot a beach towel and she was nice to lend me one. When returning to Ocean City I will stay here.

Innkeeper Response
