We were welcomed warmly and were shown to a charming room with all the amenities one would want. A living room is at your disposal, and other things too numerous to mention. Breakfast was an enlarged continental breakfast and was excellent. The inn is less than a block from the ocean in a lovely part of Ocean Grove. Our only...

As a veteran b & b for vets is a wonderful way to support the men and women that served in the arm forces. I needed to remain in Pennsylvania because my grand children had school on veterans day. My Co worker her s/o is a veteran so they selected the ocean plaza for the bed and breakfast they wanted...

Approx 15 college friends and and their honeys enjoyed a wonderful time at this impressive escape. Vicki manages and interacts with the guests and treats them like family. The food, beverages, atmosphere, and facilities are excellent! This is the place to stay when at this shore location. Hope you enjoy as much as we all did.

I cannot recommend the Inns of Ocean Grove and the manager Vicki Palmer enough for any sort of event, trip away, or in my case, a wedding weekend over Memorial Day weekend. To start with the facilities, we stayed in the Ocean Plaza, which has all the charm of a bed and breakfast but is managed and maintained like a...

Loved our two day stay here and will definitely be returning. The inn is an old Victorian with charm and a great location . Ocean Grove is a cute little town- totally walkable- with nice shops and restaurants only a couple of blocks from the the inn. Vicky- the manager- was so nice and helpful as were Rick and Barry.

My husband and I took an impromptu trip to the Jersey Shore and fell in love with Ocean Grove. Such a quaint community with amazingly beautiful houses. Lucky that Ocean Plaza had a room for the night. Queen room on the first floor. Very comfortable room with a refrigerator. Given that Ocean Grove is a dry town, it 's nice...

My husband and I were able to get away for a quick 1-night trip while our daughter was on a retreat so I booked this the morning we arrived.

For the past 5 years a group of 20 or so gather in Ocean Grove for a weekend mini high school reunion. We use the two floor suite as our gathering place. We find the Ocean Plaza clean, comfortable & accommodating to all our needs & requests.
