I never stayed here but I can say that I had an unpleasant experience with my correspondence about renting a room and the customer service I received. I was recommended to the Shawmont and excited because it had everything we wanted. Nice quiet hotel, right on the beach, in room fridge and toaster, queen sized bed with a pull out... More

The concierge was delightful, friendly and sociable. They were very hospitable and kind. However, the room was tiny, barely space to walk around, and the TV cable didn't work, Internet was spotty, and there were no outlets. The outlet in the bathroom was right under the cabinet and we couldn't get the plug in. Just little upkeep issues they need... More

Highly recommend this place in Ocean Grove. Very simple, clean rooms, small but clean bathroom and shower. Very helpful staff and walking distance to shopping area and the pier. Looking forward to staying at Shawmont again.

My fiancé and I spent a weekend in Ocean Grove at the Shawmont. We recommend Room 201 which has its own terrace facing the ocean. It is perfect for having your coffee in the morning. The staff was exceptionally warm and hospitable. We would recommend this establishment without reserve. Lynette Vitanza

we stayed in Room 209. The furnishings are sparse, but clean, simple, comfortable and functional. The rooms are incredibly simple: bed(s), TV stand w/ drawers(bureau), night table & closet w/ shelves and one chair. The windows and glass door allowed in the bright, glistening views of the shore. Beautiful vistas of the beach, water and changing sky. The private porch... More

I have been to the Shawmut many times, not the date limited by this review, always off season. The second floor corner room with the balcony is my favorite. Bring some books, and some snacks that you can refrigerate. Microwave etc available, and nice places for breakfast and lunch walking distance. Great dining nearby in Asbury Park. Shawmont is clean,... More

This was our 2nd time here. We just did 1 night in early September of '15. Friendly and nice charm .My wife shopped around they had the most reasonable rates. Rooms on the small side , but you expect that in these older houses. Rooms finished and decorated beautifully. Staff was very helpful and informative . Nice atmosphere

The Shawmont Hotel is a "find" for anyone who wants a tranquil and fun vacation. After years of battling Shore traffic to LBI and WW, we decided to stay closer to home. Perfectly located across from the beach/boardwalk, it is within walking distance to Asbury Park nightlife (if you have a desire) and only a few a few blocks from... More

The Shawmont is a charming, historic hotel right across from the street from the ocean. The beach is pristine and the town of Ocean Grove is tranquil with many shops for leisurely browsing. The hotel staff is courteous and attentive. It's obvious they enjoy serving their guests. The rooms are on the small side, but well maintained.. Ocean Grove restaurants... More

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
