I spent so much time comparing the many lovely, established options for my September beach getaway, I was bleary eyed. I ultimately chose the Laingdon and as soon as I got there, I realized how much time I'd wasted looking anywhere else. Every single aspect of my stay was wonderful. The owners were terrific, so very helpful with airport transport... More

This faces the Atlantic Ocean, just across the street from the boardwalk. The rooms are large and tastefully decorated with beautiful antiques, attractive bed linens, and accents that make the guests feel oh so special. There are balconies on all floors that extend the entire front of the "house" with full view of the ocean. The Inn Keepers are so... More

My girlfriend and I spent a Friday and Saturday night in August at the Laingdon. Room 16. 4th floor. Not a big deal walking up four flights. The owners were helpful and friendly. They let us check in early and they let us check out late. No hassle. They gave us nice pointers about where to go in town, they... More

Good location right across from nice beach. Room clean, and breakfast more than adequate (cinnamon streusel muffins were delicious!). A nice blend of allowing hotel to keep its Victorian era features, yet keeping it modern enough for guests comfort. We had a small private balcony with ocean view (Room 2) where we ate our breakfast in morning and relaxed in... More

Stayed at the Laingdon this past weekend for a quick retreat from the city. The location alone was well worth the money as we were able to enjoy the Laingdon's ocean view from the front porch and 2nd level balcony. The room was small but clean and nicely appointed, actually better than I expected from the limited photos on their... More

I really liked the room we had, No. 7 with a fabulous porch overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. However, the description of the room stated that the bed was a queen sized. When we arrived, we realized the bed was full sized. When I spoke with Angie, the owner, she said it was queen. I didn't argue with her but she... More

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
