I needed a last minute place to stay with my husband, 3 year old daughter and dog, Randy was very accommodating. Where as most places in Ocean Grove either absolutely do not accept pets or young children. Right from the start meeting Randy was like meeting an old friend I hadn't seen for a long time even though we've never... More

We've been to the Melrose numerous times over the past few years, and always enjoy it thoroughly. It's a charming and comfortable property, and Randy and Dan do everything possible to make our stay pleasant and memorable. The rooms are decorated by theme, with antiques and hand-chosen objects. (We're partial to the French Empire room.) The beach is an easy... More

My sisters and I have been going to melrose for 4-5 years. It is close to the beach and town. Randy and Dan are very caring and helpful. They are very knowledgable about Ocean Grove. They provide a complete breakfast. Randy makes the best cookies. There are two porches that over look the area and provide respite from your day.... More

I've stayed at the Melrose twice a year for over 10 years. Randy is the most engaging, attentive host I've ever had the pleasure of staying with. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well furnished. He even provides discounted beach passes for guests! I can't recommend the place highly enough.

The Melrose has been a place at which my family has stayed for 10+ years. We go twice a year for a huge family reunion, and Randy and Dan never blink at the number of people that come rushing through the door! The Melrose is not only a short walk to the beach, but a quick walk to town that... More

I have been staying at The Melrose twice a year for over ten years. My entire family takes over the B&B on Memorial Day weekend and in the fall on Flea Market weekend. Randy and Dan make The Melrose a family friendly, comfortable and fun environment. There is a breakfast in the morning, beach towels, discount beach passes and cookies... More

Twice a year, around the Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, my New York - based family gathers at The Melrose B&B for fun and sun. My family travels from Seattle to join them. Its great service, themed rooms, three porches, delicious breakfasts and proximity to the beach and town make The Melrose a great value by the usual measures.... More

We're a couple with a seven-year-old daughter. We've stayed twice at The Melrose. First time was July 4th weekend, 2013, then again in mid-June, 2014. Each time we had a great time. It's a charming, antique-filled B&B with great innkeepers. Close to the beach and an easy walk to OG's main street with shops and restaurants. We'll be back.

My friends and I have been staying at the Melrose every summer for quite a few years. Randy, our host, is very friendly and warm. He serves a delicious full breakfast every morning and leaves homemade cookies at our door each night. My room (2A) was very comfortable. It had a nice queen bed. private shower bath, refrigerator and microwave.... More
