The prices have remained the same but the scrumptious breakfast is gone. A poor excuse continental breakfast.

An Excellent Stay

Excellent first experience with the B-S Inn. Great location, very clean, quiet, and an outstanding breakfast every morning.

The best stay ever

I have stayed at other B&Bs but found this to be the best. The innkeepers were warm & welcoming and made us feel like we were in their home. Breakfast was wonderful.

Something magical happens here.

Clean, cozy, pleaceful, quaint. Nor a speck of dust or sand in This homey B&B 1/2 a block from the beach. Proprietors are clean and welcoming. They make it better than a home away from home.

Relaxation Down The Shore...

4.2 on August 24, 2009

Barbara and Jim are the consummate hosts - forever making their guests feel welcome at their B&B in the heart of Ocean Grove - three doors down from the boardwalk/beach. OG is a unique town, sandwiched between Asbury Park to the north and Bradley Beach to the south. Excellent breakfasts here - from fresh fruit to homemade quiche and egg/sausage sandwiches (plus exotic juices).

Ambiance in Ocean Grove

History and ambiance about in Ocean Grove and this inn. Nice affordable rooms 100 yards from Atlantic. Awesome breakfast.

We have not been at many bed & breakfasts, and this is one to boast about. The innkeepers are warm & friendly & take a genuine interest in making your stay special. We highly recommend it!

I have stayed here three or four times and find Barbara and Jim very friendly and helpful

The rooms are neat and clean, the breakfasts are varied and delicious and the guests are always friendly.. I would go there anytime and know I would get a good value for my money.
