“Definately Coming Back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

I grew up in North Jersey and my family, as well as many of my childhood friends, are scattered throughout the state. Typically when we visit, we stay with family "inland" and always plan a visit to the shore as I go thru "ocean withdrawals" if I don't see it/smell it/hear it every few months. This past visit (mid-May) we decided to stay at the Spray Beach Inn instead. It was amazing! Absolutely perfect! We stayed in a 3rd floor oceanfront room and the views were breathtaking! As it was "off season".. there was no traffic at all and we were able to get to the mainland in under 10 minutes -so visiting family/friends was no problem at all. The rates were reasonable and the view definitely satisfied my withdrawals! You are so close to the water that even with windows closed you could still hear the sound of the ocean! My only complaint is that during off season, the restaurant is not open. Because the hotel is not located within walking distance to any eating establishments - it made grabbing a quick breakfast or a burger for dinner an "excursion". It would have been nice to have the choice of eating at the hotel instead of getting the car and driving somewhere every time you wanted to grab a bite - which is the reason for the overall rating of 4 vs. 5. I would also like to mention that this hotel was not my first choice. I originally wanted to stay at an oceanfront hotel in Ship Bottom that had private balconies, however, when I spoke with the girl in reservations and asked about any package or discounts for staying 5+ nights off season - she told me the owner would need to get back to me - and that person never did! Meanwhile "Erica" in reservations at the Spray Beach Inn was very happy to not only answer all my questions - but assure me that although they don't have private balconies, etc... that I would not be disappointed. I reserved with Spray Beach due to the outstanding customer service I received from Erica. During our 5 day stay in May, my husband and I visited the "other hotel" and asked if we could get a tour of the room. While the room was much more spacious and more modern - the view was not nearly as breathtaking! The hotel is set further back from the water with grassy dunes separating you from the ocean - so we definitely made the better choice! We are planning a 4 night stay for end of September and plan to make this our permanent "home away from home" when visiting family in the future.

Room Tip: You don't get a view of the ocean from the 1st floor - only the sand dune! 2nd floor has "...

I recently used this property for 3 nights. There were a total of 6 ladies (all family) in two rooms. While the rooms are a little dated and the double beds could be a tight fit for people who are sharing but not romantically involved, the rooms were super clean.
It did seem like it took a while for housekeeping to get to the room (rooms still not done in early afternoon) but the rooms were cleaned very well.
We stayed in the motel area on Atlantic not the main property. It was maybe a block walk to a very clean beach and nice water. The whole property was clean. You could hear the waves at night from your room.
The pool area was also great. Only complaint was that the actual pool isn't deep enough to swim in. But the pool and especially the hot tub were enjoyable. Plenty of chairs and lounges to work on your tan. They even deliver food and drink to you pool side.
The outdoor restaurant was also a hit. Views of the ocean and the food was pretty good. Nothing to rave about but good.
We will definitely be back!

The staff from the very beginning was helpful and accommodating We stayed on the 3rd floor oceanfront. The rooms, although a little dated, were always clean and if we needed extra coffee or whatever for the room, it was there. The staff was the best. We had a great time at the Beach Bar, the bartender was excellent. We had an amazing dinner on one of the nights we were there and they make fantastic omelets for breakfast. The manager and staff did everything they could to make your stay one of the best ever!!

Wow! Went with my three daughters to the restaurant at the Spray Beach Inn and was blown away by how knowledgable and accommodating the chef and server were! My kids have Celiac disease, and I have an allergy to dairy. Food was excellent and portions were generous!

We spent our anniversary weekend at the Spray Beach Inn in June 2014. We had a great time! Room was roomy and clean. Staff was efficient and pleasant. Our 2nd story corner room had a great view of the pool AND the ocean. Breakfast at their restaurant was delicious. Proximity to the beach can't be beat. Would definitely recommend and go back again!

Room Tip: We made our reservations using their on line system and their was some confusion. Had to call a coup...

Great for disabled with an elevator. The restaurant has great food. Great bartender John at the Tiki Bar. Yes the rooms are small and dated, but very clean. Beds are comfortable besides we don't spend much time in them--And the view is the best. Everyone is very friendly and helpful.

Never staying there again! Was located at the rooms across the street. Stayed there for 1 night and couldn't wait to leave. Room had a awful smell as well as the pillows. Kids partying and kept me up all night, and ended with a migraine. Would not recommend this place to anyone.
