My daughter and I have taken our annual girl's getaway trip to Ocean Grove and it was better than ever. We originally chose Sea Spray Inn randomly, but fell in love and come back every year, now. We are already looking forward to our next visit! Mary Ellen's cooking is incredible - this time she whipped up the most tasty... More

I stayed at the Sea Spray Inn for two days this past week. It was my fifth visit and I can't wait to go back again. Eric and Mary Ellen made me feel so at home like I was visiting family and Katie the dog is a treasure. Love her :-) Wish I could have stayed longer but next time... More

This is my second time staying at Sea Spray which is just steps from the beach. The Inn is delightful and you immediately feel at home. Both Eric and MaryEllen do a great job welcoming and feeding the guests. The rooms include a beach bag and there are beach chairs to borrow. I can't imagine anybody not enjoying their stay... More

Our room was charming, we had booked the master bedroom, bonus was the great private porch just outside our room with lake and ocean views.We were treated with such... More

Five visits within two years and I'm looking forward to my next one. Need I say more? No, but, I will. Eric and Mary Ellen take great care and pride in their home in which they make you feel welcome the moment you step through the door. The accommodations are very clean, comfortable and inviting. Both they and their housekeeping... More

After a harrowing experience at a dump, I was referred to the Sea Spray by a local shop owner. High praise does not begin to describe it. The owners graciously accommodated me with no notice. I quickly checked out of the "dive" and into a truly professional, immaculate and lovely B & B. Mary Ellen & Eric are relaxed, welcoming... More

We decided to stay at the Sea Spray Inn because of all the wonderful reviews we read online. At the risk of sounding redundant, allow me to add my voice to the chorus... There's a very good reason this B&B has been listed as one of the best in the country. Among other things, they have the best "greeter" around... More

Just back from a stay at the Sea Spray Inn. And, once again, Mary Ellen and Eric provided us with an exceptional stay. These fine people know what they're doing, with hospitality that is second to none. Breakfast is always a special treat and the rooms are neat and super clean. And, regardless of how you feel about dogs, the... More

My sister and I just returned from visiting the Sea Spray and what a time we had! We were seeking rest and relaxation and our stay was just what we needed. The owners created such a welcoming yet non-intrusive atmosphere with such attention to detail. The property itself is spotless and well-maintained with a prime location just off the beach... More

My husband and I just celebrated our 35th anniversary with a stay at The Sea Spray Inn and it was totally enjoyable from the beginning to end. Mary Ellen and Eric were very pleasant and accommodating in every way. Their attention to detail was quite evident in the private rooms, the common areas and the breakfast. Thanks so much for...
