Lovely hotel with a perfect location, directly across the street from a wonderful beach. Continental Breakfast was good with a nice variety each day, room was very clean, nice sitting porch, owners very pleasant and helpful. We arrived a few hours earlier than check in time but stopped at the front desk to get discounted beach passes and we were... More

The location is great, right across the street from the beach, easy walk down the boardwalk to Asbury Park. The room we stayed in was small, but perfect for the two of us. It had a VHS player and the common hospitality area had old movies, which we enjoyed haha! I've read reviews on Yelp complaining about the owners, but... More

An absolutely lovely oceanfront Victorian Inn , with one serious drawback, smoking is allowed on the private decks. On first arriving,we were so excited by the magnificant oceanview from our own deck but were soon chased inside by the smoke fumes from our nextdoor neighbors.Thankfully they checked out after our first night and we were then free to enjoy this...

I did not have a chance to stay at this hotel as they do not allow children age 9 or younger. I find this approach ridiculous especially in a town like Ocean Grove that seems a great family oriented community. On top of this, I was profiled when went to the front desk asking for room availability: I wanted t... More

Location: Right on the beach between downtown Ocean Grove and Asbury Park. Easy and free parking in front of the hotel and the beach. An quick stroll into Ocean Grove for ice cream, or tacos on the Asbury Park Boardwalk. Amenities: Very nice updates but kept the old time feel. Wide floor boards, original door handles and wood trim. Yet,... More

The Laingdon dates back to the 1800s and fits in perfectly with similar 19th century structures that are the mainstay of Ocean Grove. Rooms are generally small, but each of the rooms we've stayed in has had a good-sized bathroom. Furnishings are period or pretty good reproductions. There are nice porches on several floors of the hotel where you can... More

Just a quick 1 hour drive from NYC is the Laingdon. One hour by car results in a trip back to a Victorian seaside hotel from the late 1800's. A great combination of period furnishings with modern amenities. The hotel is impeccably clean and the views of the Atlantic are amazing. We've been visiting this establishment for years as our...

We had a great stay on Saturday, October 20th and I could not have been more happy. We stayed in a top floor oceanfront room with a fireplace. The room, while updated, still had the Victorian style and was very clean. The bathroom was also updated which was nice to see and had a gas fireplace. I would definitely recommend... More

Beautifully restored 19th century hotel. Rooms are tastfully decorated and the view of the Atlantic are awesome. Owners are very hospitable and helpful. Other patrons were quite friendly; with many returning regularly. No on site parking which can be tricky on a Saturday night especially; if there is a concert. A healthy breakfast is included. Many restaurants are within walking... More

My wife and I have had the pleasure to stay here for the better part of the last decade, usually for one or two weekends each summer. Angie and Bill do a wonderful job of making their guests feel at home, if not part of the family. The rooms are, in our experience (having stayed at a number of other... More
