My husband and I stayed here for one night for our anniversary. The location is perfect! 1 block to the beach, 2 blocks to restaurants and shops, 10 minute walk to Asbury Park boardwalk. The first floor and second floor porches have views of the beach and the Ocean Grove green. Clean and comfy...not as old fashioned (in terms of... More

What a wonderful find! Ocean Grove is our favorite New Jersey Shore stop. The hotel is right on the Ocean Pathway close to everything. The king room we had was delightful, clean, well decorated and air-conditioned (nice to have). Our room was on the second floor, but if you don't mind additional stairs you can get better views on upper... More

We spent a long weekend with family in the large 2 story apartment suite. The room is recently redecorated and very comfortable, with all the comforts of home, including a full kitchen w/breakfast bar, living room, two bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The entire room slopes slightly to the east, which is odd, but had no negative effect on our comfort... More

We stayed at the Ocean Plaza Hotel for our wedding, along with all of our wedding guests! Everything was perfect! The rooms are very cozy and clean! We used the Bradley suite as the bridal room and it was perfect! The inn also has some amazing views!

We frequent The Ocean Plaza quite often as it is our second home. The rooms are all absolutely adorable, affordable, very clean with plenty of space. The staff is phenomenal and you will feel like one of the family. The Inn is only one block from the beach with beautiful views of the ocean and I've never had any parking... More

The Hotel is very clean, superbly located a block from beach, has everything else very close by, and all rooms are newly renovated and still have a Victoria feel. Breakfast is good and has good choices ...Service is good too,and you can enjoy internet, TV,and several porches to rest.

This place was wonderful with lots of amenities! The staff was great & very helpful! Lots of choices for breakfast & we loved sitting on the wrap around porch to eat. We also loved all the seating on the front porch. My husband fell asleep on it. We would highly recommend Ocean Plaza!

Just got back from our 2nd overnight stay at the Ocean Plaza and loved it once again. We were in room 12, beautifully decorated, the bed extremely comfy.

I should know better when the address of the property is not displayed or the name of the inn, by the process elimination we found #18 Ocean Pathway. The room was small, yet well appointed, newly renovated private bath. The problem was it sloped about 5 degrees toward the ocean. At 3:20 and again at 3:27 AM we were awakened... More

Bought a Travelzoo for The Ocean Plaza. We had heard of Ocean Grove but had never visited. What a wonderful place. The Ocean Plaza is lovely…clean, friendly staff, beautiful decor and great breakfast. The breakfast is served in the 2nd floor wrap around deck with ocean views. Ocean grove is a "dry" town ( no alcohol sold) but the hotel... More
