We were able to crack a window in the bathroom because it did become warm in our room. They have central air/heat. The wraparound porch is great with plenty of... More

Decided to stay two days at the Jersey Shore, went online and found this perfect place. We love Ocean Grove anyway, so we wanted to be close to the beach. The Ocean Plaza is right on the main street one block from the ocean. Air conditioned, new rooms, but the hotel itself has old world charm, front porch, living room... More

After so many day visits to Ocean Grove, the Ocean Plaza was the perfect setting for spending a long weekend. The staff welcomed us so warmly and answered any and all questions. The accommodations were comfy and clean -- a perfect combo. The location was convenient, with a short walk to either beach or town. The breakfast was plentiful, the... More

Establishment was very clean and situated at a great location. Staff was informative and the accommodations were very comfortable. The central location allowed for easy access to the boardwalk and beach. Plenty of good restaurants around with a diversified menu. Parking for the Ocean Plaza is close to the building. The only issue was the metered parking everywhere else. There... More

I searched for a nice bed-and-breakfast in the Jersey shore area and the ocean plaza came up with four stars plus an amazing continental breakfast. We enjoyed the room and Amenities however a continental breakfast was absolutely awful. You find yourself at a bed-and-breakfast mainly to enjoy the breakfast that they offer. This was the worst we have ever experienced.... More
