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

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
