This is a great find for the right traveler. My sister and I, along with my 14- and 12-year old daughters, were lucky enough to book 2 rooms (cancellations!) on a Saturday in August. There is NO two-night minimum, a huge plus. Rooms are old fashioned and very clean. My sunny room was on the 4th floor and was more... More

You must like ho-hum to enjoy this inn. There is nothing cutsie about it. Great effort has been taken toward tacky, to include even the toilet paper. Queen bed was fitted with double bed sheets and a king sized spread. This combo nearly strangled us. Nothing here was pleasing to include a skimpy breakfast. This Albatross needs a woman's touch...

If you can't get along with sharing bathroom and shower,(Poor You) It was nice, very old, needs up keep, but clean and for the one who... More

Booked The Albatross at the last minute and didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. It's a charming, quirky boarding house-style inn located steps away from the beach. Bill, the owner, welcomed us warmly and provided great dining recommendations. Our room was on the 3rd floor - small, with two twin beds and a sink. A shower and... More

Albatross Hotel is strategically located at the center of all attractions Ocean Grove offers; Beautiful beaches, a magnificent church/auditorium built over one hundred years ago, well maintained Victorian houses and a serene Main Street reminiscent of historic America. We have been coming to this charming enclave of peace, tranquility and rest for physical and spiritual rejuvenation, almost every weekend for... More

Whether on business like this weekend, or a few days away at the beach...I love coming back to the albatross. Location is convenient, rooms are comfortable, and the owner is always available to assist with any special requests. Save me a place on the porch, I will be back soon!

This Gem is one of Best in Ocean Grove ! It has Amazing Views and Fantastic Porches right on Ocean Pathway which is the place to be in this community. The rooms brings you back to a time forgotten. "Bill" the Innkeeper and staff are like family and make you feel like its your "CASA" My second visit is making... More

I should have read the reviews. I checked in and half an hour later, checked out. Filthy, dark, no hospitality. The lobby felt neglected, the room was dirty. I was asked to not bring food into the room to prevent roaches! I left found a lovely, clean we'll run B & B. This place should be condemned!

We stayed here for one night which is fortunate, because if we were supposed to stay longer I would have slept in my car. The room was creepy, unsafe and beyond old. For the price I was expecting a lot more. The fire detector was hanging from the ceiling (so we assume it didn't work) and the heating units along... More
