After so many day visits to Ocean Grove, the Ocean Plaza was the perfect setting for spending a long weekend. The staff welcomed us so warmly and answered any and all questions. The accommodations were comfy and clean -- a perfect combo. The location was convenient, with a short walk to either beach or town. The breakfast was plentiful, the... More

Establishment was very clean and situated at a great location. Staff was informative and the accommodations were very comfortable. The central location allowed for easy access to the boardwalk and beach. Plenty of good restaurants around with a diversified menu. Parking for the Ocean Plaza is close to the building. The only issue was the metered parking everywhere else. There... More

I searched for a nice bed-and-breakfast in the Jersey shore area and the ocean plaza came up with four stars plus an amazing continental breakfast. We enjoyed the room and Amenities however a continental breakfast was absolutely awful. You find yourself at a bed-and-breakfast mainly to enjoy the breakfast that they offer. This was the worst we have ever experienced.... More

The Ocean Plaza was our last stop on a 4-day bike trip from Cape May to Jersey City. My husband and teenage son did the biking, I did the driving (with all the stuff). This was a lovely place to wind up our trip. We were in a room on the first floor (just off the lobby), which had a... More

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!
