We absolutely loved this place. It's pricey but no more expensive than any other place in the area. It's one of the very few places in Ocean Grove that actually accepts toddlers and young children because virtually every house is Victorian and antique and I guess no-one wants the trouble. But this hotel does accept children and very accommodating. We... More

We recently spent a couple of nights at the Shawmont Hotel and we were totally delighted. It's situated right across the boardwalk, opposite a wide, clean, sandy beach--no cigarette butts or litter. The hotel rooms are smallish, but the common areas make up for that: We enjoyed sitting on the front porch and chatting companionably with family members before dinner... More

Last year we stayed at the Albatross and found it to be old, small, and not well kept. This year we discovered the Shawmount Hotel. It's a large Victorian home with a beautiful porch full of rocking chairs that faces the ocean. You simply cross the street and you are on the boardwalk, at lifeguard post 3, which is left... More

Hotel in heart of Ocean Grove, NJ. Ocean Front. Steps to boardwalk, Asbury Park, NJ. What a great find. Joanna and her staff pay attention to detail. Always helpful. Hotel has charm but many updates and clean, clean, clean. I wish I could go 4 - 5 x a season. Love it.

Great hotel..wonderful friendly caring staff..can't beat the location. Low key..relaxing..just the right amenities for a casual weekend getaway..highly recomend! Prices are good..Ocean Grove is a very walkable town.., restaurants and shops nearby..boardwalk and beach are across the street..Asbury Park and their active boardwalk are just a walkaway....

Our 2 daughters and my husband and I recently stayed for the first time at the Shawmont Hotel in Ovean Grove. The location can't be beat. Directly across the street from the ocean and beach. All of the staff could not be nicer. Accommodating and very pleasant. A wonderful restful getaway. We look forward to returning.

One of the few hotels with ground floor rooms easily accessible by the mobility impaired. Good morning breakfast and helpful staff. Some of the furnishings in rooms is rather depressing, and surprising as front lobby in nicely decorated and very comfortable. Convenient walk to downtown eateries and shops, and the front porch view of the ocean is great.

The Shawmont is a beautiful, classic inn directly across the street from the ocean. IUnlike most of the OG inns, it is open year round, too. That alone makes a visit worthwhile. What most impressed us (along with our private ocean front balcony and spacious, spotless, sunny room) was the kindness and friendliness of the inn's staff. Joanna, Laura, and... More

What a wonderful and lovely place. We live nearby, but wanted a getaway for our 20th anniversary and picked the Shawmont. It was really just perfect. We had a room facing the ocean, and instead of hitting the town as we originally planned, we just spent hours on the balcony just looking out over the water and relaxing. It was... More

I never stayed here but I can say that I had an unpleasant experience with my correspondence about renting a room and the customer service I received. I was recommended to the Shawmont and excited because it had everything we wanted. Nice quiet hotel, right on the beach, in room fridge and toaster, queen sized bed with a pull out... More
