This time, I stayed in the Sea Breeze room which had been redecorated, formerly the etoile room. Again, it was beautiful with every detail accounted for. The accent tile in the shower was so pretty and unusual! The room was light and airy with a beautiful view of the ocean. Eric and Mary Ellen work hard to make sure every... More

A delightful stay for a oval wedding. We stayed in the Master Bedroom, with a lovely terrace, lots of space, good bed, OK bathroom. It's a good location, nice views across the lake and to the sea, and very comfortable. Only tiny criticism for me was the centrally controlled air conditioning, which was a bit noisy and I would have... More

I can't really say anything on here that hasn't been said before. Just a wonderful stay. We were in the area for one night for my wife's HS reunion in Asbury Park, so we picked this location based on all the fabulous reviews. The location and proximity to the beach is wonderful. We had the master suite with it's fantastic... More

Just returned home from our first stay at the Sea Spray Inn and we can't wait to go back! From the minute that we walked in the door and were greeted my Mary Ellen, Eric and their lovely dog Katie, we felt very welcomed. The Rosebud room was adorable and very clean. Breakfast was amazing and Mary Ellen was more... More

The innkeepers, Mary Ellen and Eric (not to mention Katie, their dog) offer the warmest welcome, the most comfortable rooms, and a succulent breakfast to make every moment a delight. The inn is located a short walk from Ocean Grove Center, and only slightly farther from Asbury Park, so activities are never far from the peace and quiet of Sea... More

Just returned from my sixth visit to the Sea Spray and have made reservations for my return in early May. For your Ocean Grove get away you will not find a nicer place for some R&R. From the moment you arrive Mary Ellen, Eric and Katie ( the dog) welcome you like family or old friends. The atmosphere is both... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sea Spray Inn. Mary Ellen and Eric are very welcoming and make you immediately feel comfortable. The room was adorable and fit our needs perfectly. Also, Mary Ellen's breakfast is superb! I recommend the Sea Spray Inn highly.

Mary Ellen and Eric are absolutely wonderful hosts. They both make you feel right at home as soon as you enter the inn. The common space is cozy and welcoming with home baked goodies always available. Our room was clean, inviting and quiet. The location of the inn was less than a minute walk to the boardwalk and about a... More

From the moment the hosts, Mary Ellen and Eric, meet you at the bottom of the steps to greet you and help with the bags to the time you leave you are treated like family. Breakfast and home made crum cake can not be beat. Rooms are nicely decorated and beds are comfortable. Sitting on the front porch with views... More

From the moment you arrive, you'll feel welcome here. This is a meticulously and beautifully restored B&B, with genial hosts, Mary Ellen and Eric, and their friendly, well-behaved dog Katey. All three of them make you feel like part of their family. The Master Bedroom was available for us, and it met high expectations for décor, cleanliness and quiet atmosphere.... More
