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

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
