The best part about this hotel is the location. It's right across the street from the boardwalk and an entrance to the beach. The staff was very friendly. It was great that breakfast was included. Our room was on the second floor and had a balcony with a beautiful view! The room itself was rather small. The bathroom and sheets... More

I booked the only room available in Ocean Grove for the time we were interested which was August 17-21st towards the end of July. We were happy to see that it was right across the street from the beach! Lisa was the first person we interacted with in person. She was very helpful and always willing to discuss any questions...

Had another great 10 days at Ocean Grove's Shawmont Hotel. I take my elderly mother there every summer, although it's an 8 hour drive for us. For the past two years, we've had the same room on the first floor: two single beds at the back of the building. Very convenient for her (with her walker). Prior to this we... More

Had a lovely overnight stay at the Shawmont Hotel in July 2015. I stayed in "premium" Room #5 on the main floor, down the hall from the lobby/coffee area. The room was a decent size with a queen sized bed, good sized bathroom, with towels and hair dryer. The toiletries were very basic and the hotel might want to consider... More

Always went to South Jersey beaches... Until last year when we found Ocean Grove and the Shawmont Hotel. Very quaint, exceptionally clean, most accommodating staff, great prices (ask about the mid-week special). Ocean Grove is a town run by the Methodists established for the perpetual worship of Jesus Christ. Can't beat that!!!! Beach is spotless. You will love it!

We stayed in room 2 which was close to the common area so our room was a bit loud at times, but we weren't in there much. Our room was very cute & clean. The common area had complimentary tea, coffee, fruit, and candy. There was a common fridge where u could put your leftovers or any other food. The... More

Situated across the street from the ocean this small and friendly hotel is nice, clean and has a very friendly staff. The rooms are nice and comfortable and it gives you a home feeling. We have stayed here before and are returning for another stay this weekend.

Stayed at the Shawmont for a getaway weekend twice and enjoyed both visits very much. The staff is very accommodating and the atmosphere very relaxed. One of our rooms was on the north side of the Inn and had a balcony with an ocean view while the other was a larger inside room with no view. Both rooms were spotless... More

A large 1871 beachfront Colonial split up into various sized rooms. I stayed one night while at the Music and Film Fest. It was a small room with a king sized bed, tv and a chair. This is all i needed and the price was right, $89 for the night. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was nice... More
