We chose this place because it's one of the very few that allows children. It was absolutely perfect for our family (2 adults, 4 yr old, 1 yr old). The setup of the Inskip suits allowed us to put the kids to bed early and not disturb them since the bathroom and tv are off the bedroom. The daybed (with a pullout but we used a play yard as well) are in the main living area. The only problems we had were that the suite was on the 4th floor and there was no bathtub (only a stand shower). This was only an issue because we have small children but we still plan on staying here again, will just prepare better.

Have stayed here many times. The rooms are very small and the common areas are crowded. It has been nicely renovated and is well kept. The location is great. You must be willing to pay for charm.

Love the feel of the B & B, of the beach community and the surrounding area. Ocean Grove is family friendly, quiet and low key and funky Asbury Park is right next door with cool shops and great restaurants. We know the Jersey Shore, I grew up in north Jersey, moved away and this is our favorite place to come back to and see family!

There were 3 of us sharing a room and we were quite comfortable. The room was roomy (room #11), clean and the bedding was nice. Short walk to the beach and they provide towels and discounted beach badges. Very positive experience.

Overall, I had a pleasant stay in this BB. The BB is located in the center of Ocean Grove community, and very close to the beach. It provides beach towels, and I went to the beach with my bathing suit. I actually swan. I felt great! The staff were very courteous and helpful. Only a minor complaint I have is that the bed cover was stained, though it was relatively clean. I can recommend this BB to my friends.

The Ocean Plaza was the perfect spot for my two adult children and I to take a mini-vacation together, The staff is friendly, the rooms are comfortable and clean. Though the dresser drawers were broken and would fall out whenever we opened them too far. Breakfast was down to earth and easy- hard boiled eggs, choices of cereals, breads and muffins, fruit, coffee, tea and more. We were steps from the beach, the boardwalk, the historical sites of the town, restaurants and shopping. Ocean Grove is a peaceful and laid back town- quaint and almost devoid of falls buildings, chain restaurants or stores, and traffic. We enjoyed an afternoon in Asbury Park, a ten minute walk up the board walk.

We stumbled upon this gem and was very pleased with the guality of it. Ocean views from our room and wonderful to read from the bed and look at the ocean on a winter day. Furnishings were so comfortable and elegant. Even during the winter the wrap around porch was available for breakfast to continue viewing the ocean. Definitely we will be back, so until again

A hidden treasure, The Ocean Plaza, is both charming and delightful in summer and winter. Our stay was full of pleasure: cozy decor, Christmas lights galore, great service and generous hospitality. The beauty of the area is dazzling and the ocean breeze invigorated our senses.

I had a great stay for 4 nights, at the Ocean Plaza. The room was clean and very comfortable, the morning breakfast was tasty and plentiful, and the staff was extremely friendly and very accommodating. A great value for my money. I'm looking forward to several return stays there next year.

I had the pleasure of spending the weekend at this property with my friend and immediately i was impressed. It has a home feel and was very, very clean. I had to check in late due to a prior engagement, but the receptionist infomormed me of the steps that we needed to take to make it a seamless transition. When we woke up we went up to the second floor to have breakfast, where they had many options and an abundance of food. This is a great place to go to for a great value and in my opinion a diamond in the rough.

The staff was extremely helpful when setting up our stay. At check-in Vicki at the front desk was wonderful, full of information! Our room was great - LOVE the beds, linens and pillows, all so plush! The continental breakfast in the morning was great and so nice to sit out on the wrap around porch.The extra amenities provided by The Ocean Plaza were wonderful - all in all as first time visitors, you felt right at home and we definitely plan to come back!!

I love this cozy B&B. It's clean, quaint, peaceful and very close to the beach. Staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast has a good variety. I always enjoy my stay here. Will continue to go.

We had a fabulous weekend. Our room was clean and inviting. Everyone was friendly and we enjoyed the breakfast on the porch where we could look at the ocean and sitting on the porch at night talking to the other guests.

After many day trips to Ocean Grove, we decided to spend a long weekend. Recommended by a friend, The Ocean Plaza was such a great choice. We were warmly welcomed by the staff, the room was spotless, and the continental breakfast service was a perfect start to the day. All the guests were friendly, obviously enjoying their stay also, We had a second floor room at the top of the stairs overlooking the front plaza. The location was so convenient. mid way to the beach and to town. As many other guests were doing, we made reservations for a longer long-weekend stay next year!

Our family enjoyed a two night stay at the Ocean Plaza in early July. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We were a bit early for check in so we went to the beach until the room was ready. Barry was nice enough to text us to let us know it was available. The room was recently updated and was very clean. Breakfast (complimentary)on the second floor porch was a bonus. Would love to stay here again. Duane Faber

We have been to the ocean plaza several times and we just keep coming back. Between the rooms, the staff, the location, and the amazing breakfast, this is a regular stay for us. Thanks for everything and see you next year!!

Our suite was beautiful. Very comfortable and very clean. Great location. Only complaint is that the downstairs bathroom did not have a shower only a bathtub and the upstairs bathroom was in the other bedroom. Made it awkward to share with non-family members. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again

Great location, close to everything. We parked our car on arrival and didn't use it for our entire stay. We walked everywhere - including Asbury Park boardwalk (which takes 5 mins.), as well as downtown Ocean Grove. It's a large B&B, which allows for lots of privacy while still giving a B&B feel. Vicki is wonderful - helpful & just the right amount of friendly. We were concerned about it being a dry town but you can BYOB (we walked to the liquor store in Asbury Park to try new wine) and Ocean Grove Plaza provided wine glasses. We are definitely come back.

As always I am pleased when staying here. I don't usually come in the warm months. So this was an added blessing. Vickie is always helpful and so was Rick. I want to come back in August!!!!

Loved the Ocean Plaza Inn. Convenient to everything in town. Clean, charming, wonderful resort and the staff was excellent! Wonderful breakfast on the heated porch (was necessary in April) Will definitely be going back.

My husband and I stayed at the Ocean Plaza this past week. Our stay was very pleasant and the staff were very accommodating and helpful. The room was a nice size, and the bathroom was new and clean. If you get up very early you could see the orange sunrise from my window. Breakfast was more than you could ever want. THANKS for a wonderful stay. We look forward to returning soon. L&L

Have stayed in the Ocean Plaza numerous times over the past four years. The staff is always welcoming yet never overbearing. It has all the comforts of a great B&B yet you're afforded privacy as well. Once you park your car you don't really need it again. You can walk the b'walk in one direction towards Asbury Park & in the other direction towards Bradley Beach, Avon, & Belmar. This B&B is a 5 min. walk into the charming town of Ocean Grove. While in Ocean Grove, check out Nagles & The Starving Artist. In Asbury Park, there is a great Korean taco place right on the B'walk. For a cocktail & nice dinner, Moonstruck is a short walk off the bwalk. Delponte's Bakery ( on Main Street) is a must. You'll feel like you're in Little Italy. A relaxing getaway & the price is right!

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!

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.

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 !!!!

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 .

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!

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.

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.

We found our stay at this Inn very comfortable, friendly and pleasant. We definitely want to go back next fall. The location to the beach and the view of the ocean from the porch was just wonderful - truly relaxing and memorable.
