I've stayed at the Shawmont a number of times. Fairly simple rooms, good value. The continental breakfast is pretty good. My favorite thing is their lovely porch which faces the ocean. The staff are very helpful.

Myself and my husband spent 3 nights at the Shawmont Hotel in September. The location is brilliant, we had a room on the 1st floor, with a balcony and side view of the ocean. It was great to sit on the balcony of a morning watching the sunrise and in the evening have a few drinks out there, listening to... More

The Shawmont is a very basic hotel that is clean, comfortable, and basically right on the beach. We stayed here for one night during a NJ beach getaway. It felt like a hybrid hotel/B&B. Our room was small, but it was sufficient for the night. The bathroom in our room was almost as big as the room itself! I loved... More

This is a lovely place with friendly and accommodating staff and an absolute perfect location. We found the premium room to be clean, comfortable and although not grand - plenty enough space for the two of us. Our boys shared a room with twin beds that was perfectly sized with an ocean view! Both rooms were decorated nicely, had everything... More

Several family extended members booked several rooms for a last minute get away. Several generations. Location convenient and lovely. It accommodated every age. It was comfortable, clean, (-a bit more attention to bathroom floors and corners is suggested but overall clean). Beds were comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly. We have stayed in MANY inns in Ocean and this is... More

Home away from home, although we would love to live there someday. Amazingly comfortable hotel, warm friendly staff, clean beyond expectations. No fancy rooms, if that's what you're looking for. Outstanding view from open front porch & ocean-view rooms. Book early!!

I have been visiting Ocean Grove over twenty years. I love the quaint shops, cafes, quiet location, proximity to busier restaurants in surrounding towns (that you can walk to), boardwalk, beach playground, small water park, mini golf and family friendly atmosphere. It's also within driving distance of the restaurants, amusements parks and clubs of other neighboring towns, but far enough... More

We (Mom and I) have regularly visited the Shawmont for years--and she's been going there regularly since the early 1970s. It's quiet, homey, and comfortable. Over time, it's been updated. Now it is completely air conditioned, and this year they boosted the wi-fi signal so that every room can get online. Not sure if this is a good thing or... More

Our pristine itinerary said Asbury Park. Luckily we ended up at Shawmont Park in Ocean Grove instead. Check in was swift yet with a very personal touch. The lady at the front desk let us choose between two different rooms. We chose one right up a steep flight of stairs which was tiny but had a little porch and an... More

On a tip from a friend, we, and another couple, booked the two best rooms with side-by-side front porches facing the Atlantic. This small hotel is housed in a 100-year-old building, and it's nothing fancy and rather a homey place to stay. Rocking chairs on the ground floor front verandah; small front lounge with a couple of tables for breakfast... More
