Mary Ellen and Eric continue to work hard to make our summer vacation something to anticipate during the cold winter months. The inn is beautiful, the gardens magnificent, the breakfasts are delicious, the bed is comfortable. Eileen Georgas' evocative watercolors are now available as note cards--hooray! The hosts know what's happening in Ocean Grove and surrounding towns, and they'll recommend... More

The Sea Spray Inn really is as good as the reviews say! This was our 3rd stay at the inn and it was simply wonderful! The location (one block off the boardwalk) the hospitality of Eric and Mary Ellen, the decor, the comfort of the beds, the well appointed room, the little extras (fresh baked goods in the entry, provided...

My husband and I went to the Sea Spray Inn for our first overnight away from our 18 month old and had the most wonderful time and wished we could've stayed longer! Mary Ellen and Eric were warm and welcoming immediately and their breakfast was OUT OF THIS WORLD delicious. Mary Ellen's coconut banana bread might be the best bread... More

This was my third stay at this wonderful place and it just keeps getting better. I generally shy away from B and Bs but this place was the exception to the rule. I am the rare solo traveler and I love the Cabana Room-cozy, comfortable and quite roomy for a single. Mary Ellen and Eric are the best hosts-the wine... More

This was our 5th visit, and it was just wonderful. The bed was so very comfortable that it was a struggle to get to breakfast on time. But we always made it to the sumptuous meal served by the husband and wife team of Eric and Mary Ellen. Mary Ellen is the cook extraordinaire who cheerfully accommodates her guests' tastes.... More

My husband and I were so looking forward to our little getaway to the beautiful Sea Spray Inn for 3 nights July 13-17. 2 days before our arrival, I ended up in the ER very sick with abdominal pain. I was discharged, sent me home with 2 different strong antibiotics and bed rest..I didn’t think I would be able to... More

Took a spur of the moment ride to Ocean Grove with my bride for dinner and a walk on the beach. Decided not to take the late night 1 hour drive home so we found Sea Spray. We lucked out and they had a vacancy. Ended up being one of the best B & B's we ever stayed at. Fantastic... More

We spent our babymoon here on 4th of July and we had such an amazing and relaxing mini-vacation. Everything from the hosts, the room, the town, the breakfast, the whole experience, was outstanding! Mary Ellen and Eric are the most hospitable inn keepers and their pup Katie is too sweet! We look forward to spending many more relaxing getaways in... More

The Sea Spray Inn is a fabulous B&B. Although it was our first visit to Ocean Grove, Mary Ellen and Eric welcomed us like old friends. Just a 'stone's throw from the boardwalk'. We had the 'bird cage' room at the top of the house. Utterly charming.

I just returned from my second stay at Sea Spray Inn and experienced a wonderful, much-needed rest at this primer bed and breakfast. I so appreciated the hospitality of Mary Ellen and Eric. The stay at their inn again met all my expectations...quiet room with strong/hot shower, relaxing lobby with friendly people, delicious breakfasts, great amenities. Their dog Katie is... More
