This onetime Victorian Inn has taken on a present day California style ambiance. Nestled in the heart of historic homes, the Great Auditorium and Tent City, you can park the car and walk to everything. You are one short block from the beach and the ocean vistas from the large open porches are beautiful. The continental breakfast is over-the-top with... More

I absolutely love it here! The ambiance, the comfy, well decorated rooms, and the buffet breakfast from 7:30-11 is much more than continental!! Great staff led by Vicki and Rick! Free mini candies in a bowl in the parlor which is amply replenished all day! Lower floor has snack bags of assorted chips (free) for beach or late night munchies!... More

The staff made a big difference - any problem we had they fixed quickly - we had more fun due to their help - when we reported that our bed was uncomfortable they changed our room and later tried that bed and agreed that it was uncomfortable - they went out and got a memory foam mattress top so that...

I spent two nights at the Ocean Plaza with my husband and my dog, Gizmo, July 27, 28, 29, 2014. The inn was perfect for our needs as I had just found this deal on July 20th from Travelzoo. As soon as I saw it was pet friendly I immediately checked into it and they had availability for these dates... More

A friendly place, on the central avenue to the beach. Great location, beautiful restoration, helpful staff. Comfortable but not sumptuous rooms. Wine glasses available in the parlor for your brought-in wine in this dry town.

Perfect location on Ocean Pathway with views of Victorian homes, the boardwalk and ocean. And the sunrise. Friendly staff. Vicki and Rick are very helpful with the area's restaurants and activities. Spacious rooms with modern conveniences. Large porches on each floor. Very short walk to the beach and walking distance to shops and restaurants.

I spent a long weekend at The Ocean Plaza July 17-21. IT WAS PERFECT! This big, beautiful B&B is located just several Victorian houses away (about a three minute walk) from the oceanfront, situated on Ocean Pathway, an airy and attractive wide avenue in the heart of Ocean Grove. Rick was friendly and knowledgeable about all of the local cafés... More

They say 3 times a charm...well, in our case, staying at the Ocean Plaza B&B was every bit a charm the "1st" time around! We were given a certificate for our "25th" anniversary...using it 7/5/14. The quaint town, ambiance of the B&B, pristeen bathrooms, everything done with warmth, elegance & total comfort...not to mention each staff member more than accomodating!... More

My mother, daughter grand daughter and myself spent the weekend with 17 others from our Church family at this lovely place. The BEDS were amazing. I have back problems and yet I slept like a baby all night! The staff were helpful and hospitable. We loved sitting on the porch with the whole gang..... lots of room for us all.... More
