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

We really got lucky. The Laingdon did not enforce a two night minimum although we loved it so much we stayed a second night. Our room with private balcony was scrupulously clean and luxuriously well appointed...even the sheets smelled dreamy. The continental breakfast had these cinnamony rolls that I certainly don't have every day. And....the view. It's open to all... More

The Laingdon is a super location in Ocean Grove, the service friendly and accommodating, and the rooms attractive and clean. I would certainly consider this hotel for future visits.

Had the great pleasure of staying at the Laingdon over the Veteran's Day Holday. Angie and Bill, the hosts, were delightful and the amenities of the hotel were well more than you would expect at a typical seaside resort. The bathroom was far above the average Inn/B&B. Their view of the Ocean is spectacular and only a few steps away!... More

I booked one of the balcony rooms for several nights at the end of September due to an event. Because the weather was cool, I didn't have to worry about air conditioning problems. I was told the A/C was having problems and there was a plastic bag covering the top of the antique bar below the A/C unit, but as... More

I should have trusted my instincts and cancelled our two night reservation after reading the reviews of this hotel. We reserved two rooms on the top floor ocean front. Not even a "hello" upon checking in. Both the man and the woman seemed irritated to have to check our group in (rented three rooms in total - 6 people). Got... More

We are sorry that your stay with us was less than stellar. We take pride in our many return customers who stay here in beautiful Ocean Grove. Our Air Conditioners are indoor mounted and drain through our walls. We have had only one area of our building effected by leaks and have had several technicians in to fix them. Yes... More
