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

We loved this place. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Hosts very gracious. The front porch is a perfect place to relax. Just steps to the boardwalk and beach and a 15 min. walk to Asbury Park for nightlife and the Silver Ball Museum. ( a must for fans of old pinball machines) Highly recommend.

Got a mid week deal off Travel Zoo. Two nights for$169. Can't beat that ! It is one block from the beach...and there is a large open area across the street so you don't feel cramped. The staff are great and they are very friendly and accommodating. Beautiful lobby and porch where you can relax with plenty of couches and... More

We just spent our anniversary at the Ocean Plaza and we'll definitely be back. Vicki and her team are available, helpful and friendly; the inn itself is charming. While I wasn't thrilled with our room, it was the one available with a king-size bed and my husband is 6'5" so a queen isn't as comfortable for the two of us.... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, and for all your kind words. Just to clarify – we sell beach passes at our front desk for $5; at the beach they are $8. Possibly you bought two beach passes from us, one for you and one for your husband and that is why you paid $10. We... More

Spent an evening here last week and was very pleased with this wonderful B&B! Beautiful accommodations and decor. Breakfast was very nice with pastries, muffins, bagels, fresh fruit, and various cereals.

This was my first Girlfriend's Weekend. There were six of us! Vickie and all the staff were fabulous...wanted everyone to feel at home, have fun, and just enjoy without a worry! They went above and beyond, from homemade cookies and chocolates in our room, a wonderful wine and appetizer welcoming, and an incredible Continental Breakfast. We are already looking forward...
