just got back from this Bed and Breakfast today. I wanted to write this review asap so that I did not leave out anything. The LOCATION is great! You are right across the street from the entrance to the beach. The area is safe and clean. You are two shorts blocks north of main street, where you will find some... More

We returned to the Ocean Vista for our third stay (at least) last weekend. It's almost like being a house guest: the owners are around a lot and chatty, the desk staff are friendly, the dog is lovable, and the beds are comfortable. We took a two-room and another twin-bed room across the hall. The rooms are small, but pretty... More

My husband and I spent a lovely weekend at the Ocean Vista. The property is Ocean front, just walk across the street and you are literally on the boardwalk! In fact, our room was even ocean front, so we woke up with ocean views right from our room. The house is a beautiful old style, with two gorgeous porches, perfect... More

I stayed here in the early summer for a couple of nights just to get away and be on the beach. It was wonderful. I had a single room with shared bath (you can get rooms with private bath too) and the best part was being able to walk out on the 2nd floor balcony and watch the sunrise. Light... More

The personal, friendly approach started with phone inquiries and continued through our 2-night visit. Pleasantly surprised that our rooms were ready well before normal check-in time, allowing us to settle in and get to the beach before noon. Beach blankets and towels generously provided. Sunny, small rooms with comfortable beds; size compensated for with balconies overlooking the beach and Victorian... More

Great view, cozy porch, clean room, relaxing unpretentious atmosphere create the perfect scenario for a weekend away from the craziness of city life. This was my second visit to the Ocean Vista and it did not disappoint. The environment is cozy and the staff makes you feel at home. Pete and Diane are nice non intrusive hosts. Rooms are on... More

We realized right away that we had paid way more than we are typically willing to pay primarily to see the ocean from the porch. Our basement room was freezing at night (had to ask twice for more blankets) and really noisy in the morning from the foot traffic overhead. There was old food in the fridge from previous guests...

If you are looking for an unpretentious, relaxing atmosphere with innkeepers whose focus is on treating you like family, you've arrived at the right place. We have been coming to Ocean Vista Hotel almost without interruption since before Pete and Diane took over and could not be happier with the level of service, cleanliness and old fashioned simple comforts like...

I spent a refreshing five days at the Ocean Vista, where I have stayed four other times in the past seven years. As always the room was clean, the staff friendly, and the atmosphere relaxing--best of all it is right across the street from the beach. I love the balconies overlooking the ocean, the very comfortable bed, the excellent price,... More

We really enjoyed this Victorian place by the ocean. Very comfortable and friendly. Only complaint we have is that the "breakfast" consisted on little Wallmart style pastries, which was disappointing to say the least. Kind of felt ripped-off in that regard. Will come here again and bring our own breakfast.
