My husband and I look forward to meeting our best friends for over 50 years in Ocean Grove. We have been staying at Ocean Plaza for over 5 years and enjoying their great hospitality. Rooms are kept immaculate. Breakfast has always been included with a good assortment of choices but this year they have a great cook that took it... More

Excellent. They go out of their way to make sure your stay is the best. In fact my friends and I think Rick & Vicki and Barry, work too hard for their guests. The weather was the best you could ask for.

My family stayed in one of the beautiful suites in this Inn. It was clean and spacious. The staff was exceptionally nice and professional. Rick was simply amazing to say the least. Ours was not a typical stay - we arrived on thursday evening and were set to check out on sunday afternoon. Everything was going extremely well - in... More

This place is great - spent 3 nights here as a girls getaway with a friend. The rooms are clean, beds are super comfy, and the location....location...location - outstanding! 1 long block to the beach. Discounted beach tags can be purchased here for $5 a day - rather than $8 at the beach. Rick is fantastic from the moment you... More

The Ocean Plaza is wonderful. Vicky's warm welcome and hospitality sets the tone. The room is very comfortable and the housekeeping staff does a great job each day. Breakfast upstairs on the balcony is amazing. Pam's breakfast treats are the best and her personality makes for a pleasant start to the day. Rick and Barry do a great job as... More

Nice place to stay. Good breakfast and hospitality. Clean, Clean, Clean! The best Jersey shore hotel I've ever stayed at. Close to the beach and restaurants. Nice family atmosphere. Great views of the ocean and beach. The fourth floor suites are outstanding.

We loved our first stay at the Ocean Plaza and will come back. Very family feel. Room was great with a balcony that the kids loved. Price was reasonable, service great. Location can't be beat, steps form the beach and two blocks from restaurants The only thing that stops this being a five star for me was the breakfast. Breakfast... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us, and for your kind comments. I can understand your disappointment about the breakfast not being out on time, however, our chef's father was rushed to the hospital that morning in critical condition and she went to the hospital to be with him. We did not find out until... More
