I've recently returned home from my fourth stay at The Melrose in Ocean Grove, NJ. I feel blessed to have found Randy, Dan and the Inn as I always feel so welcome there and so relaxed when I must leave. I hope to be a guest there for many years to come and recommend The Melrose to all.

Four of us, friends for thirty years, spend a couple of days together every year in Ocean Grove. Once we found the Melrose, we've never stayed anywhere else. Dan and Randy have an incredible gift of hospitality - we are welcomed, literally, with open arms. No need to pack towels for the beach - the Melrose provides them. Freshly baked... More

My wife and I have been staying at the Melrose for about 15 years. We always look forward to spending the weekend at the Melrose and also spending time with Randy, who is very gracious and knowledgeable. The inn is charming, in an excellent location --about one and a half blocks from the ocean, and a very short walk to... More

Having never visited Ocean Grove/Asbury Park before, I was was made to feel completely at home by our gracious, jovial and knowledgable innkeeper, Randy. He makes a great breakfast and great conversation. The authentic Victorian house is charmingly and thoughtfully filled with antiques. For instance, Randy and his partner, Dan curated all sheep-themed antiques in our room. We never had... More

Already planning to return within the next few months to Melrose. Enjoyed the personal touch, warmth and coziness of a home that speaks to you. One could not ask for a better host, guests treated like friends. Happy to have found, truly my serenity spot at Ocean Grove. Jo-Ann S

What a wonderful weekend I spent at the Melrose. Randy and Dan are the most accommodating hosts and make the best breakfast's I have ever had at a B&B. What a delight to see Ocean Grove again after all these years and the Melrose is a gem and is furnished impecably. Cookies delivered to the door at night were an... More

This is my second visit to the Melrose and it will not be my last. I absolutely love the hotel. It's a wonderful old Victorian that is comfortable and charming. Innkeeper Randy is so warm and friendly and welcoming -- he puts you at ease right away. It's quiet with many amenities and several nice touches such as yummy homemade... More

The Melrose is a great place. Randy, the host, is so welcoming and friendly that I felt instantly at home. Within 15 minutes of my arrival, I learned the best restaurants and interesting places to visit. The room was comfortable and cozy. The breakfast was very good and filling, and the bedtime cookies a real treat at your doorstep. But... More

My daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Melrose. We were there last year and couldn't wait to go back. I was happy to find a B&B that allowed children. At The Melrose, they not only allow children, they welcome them! The rooms are decorated according to their theme and the whole inn is warm and welcoming. Extra... More

The Melrose is a little piece of heaven in the beautiful and funky town of Ocean Grove, just south of Asbury Park on the Jersey Shore. Owner Randy was the consummate host, not only providing a lovely and comfy place to stay and delicious breakfast (and bedtime cookies!), but as a former Mayor of the town, full of facts and... More
