We have stayed at the Ocean Plaza during the summer for several years but this was our first winter trip. The level of service during the off season is the same high quality that we receive each summer. Our room was beautiful, the staff was friendly and helpful, allowing us to stash our luggage all day since we were taking...

I just stayed one night in the offseason at The Ocean Plaza. When deciding to stay in Ocean Grove the options were plentiful due to the time of year. What is advertised on the Ocean Plaza website is very accurate and if you take your time to research it or talk to someone who works there over the phone prior...

Only one-half block from the Ocean Grove Beach/Boardwalk (Perfect for Winter walking when you bring a warm coat, hat and gloves. And it's not crowded: Just a few people to keep you company. And you can park your car anywhere.), Ocean Plaza's staff is friendly and accommodating, and our charming room with an ocean view had a very comfortable bed....

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.

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.
