Great breakfast, immaculate room, Mary Ellen and Eric are super hosts. Good views of the ocean and just a short walk to the beach and Main Ave. where there are some nice little restaurants and shops!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my brief stay. MaryEllen and Eric were most welcoming. I was on one of those horrid transatlantic business trips - a night here, a night there, working all day, waking up too early. But staying in a place like this makes the trip so much more palatable. Thanks again for the lovely pot of tea on the... More

The owners of the Sea Spray have created a most pleasant and welcoming haven in Ocean Grove NJ. The lodgings are attractively appointed and well maintained. Our room had good ocean views. The breakfasts feature excellent home-made dishes. Other amenties include efficient central air, complimentary wi-fi, daily newspapers in the main lounge area, and a great front porch with comfortable... More

The owners were super friendly, hospital people. Our room was great for our little day-cation; cable tv, comfy queen sized bed, and an ocean view. The breakfast before checkout was beyond excellent. It was my first time staying at a B&B, and already it feels like a home away from home. I would definitely recommend The Sea Spray Inn to... More

I can't say enough about Mary Ellen and Eric's hospitality. We had such a wonderful time at their bed and breakfast and hope we can return very soon. The rooms were even better in person and the breakfast was delicious (fluffy blueberry pancakes). Most of the places in Ocean Grove leave a bit to be desired in regards to up-to-date... More

Family gathering trip. Dad actually stayed at the Sea Spray in the 1940s when it was a rooming house for families to vacation at Ocean Grove. The accommodations were wonderful. The owners were great and made us feel at home. The mattresses/beds were comfortable and the food was fantastic.

Mary Ellen and Eric are the perfect hosts. Beautiful property, comfortable stay, and right on the beach. Great meals and warm, welcoming atmosphere. A place we will look forward to coming back....... soon.

Had a wonderful return visit to the Sea Spray Inn in Ocean Grove. The best hostess and host anywhere! Beautiful place, rooms are delightful and breakfast is always delicious. Mary Ellen, the owner, can't do enough for you to make your visit just wonderful. We shall return again and again!!!!

We had the Master Bedroom, which was more than lovely -- roomy, cheerfully decorated and well planned out. The king-size bed was very comfortable -- soft top, firm beneath. Nice. Eric and Mary Ellen were charming, friendly and gracioius, very eager to please. Our fellow guests, as you'd hope from a top-shelf B&B, were an interesting (!) and varied mix,... More

Hosts were very friendly. Rooms were clean and well decorated. Robes in each room. Beach towels and beach bag in each room. Beach chairs available. Great breakfasts, homemade backed goods were wonderful. Great view of the ocean from the porch. A great place for a peaceful get-a-way!
