My family and I have been coming here for over 5 years. We truly love it-it has everything. There is nothing better than walking 5 minutes to the beach, 5 minutes back and then have a lovely bath and an air conditioned room to sleep in-with cable TV and wi-fi. The food is also delicious!

This was our second visit to Sea Spray Inn and loved it as always. Mary Ellen and Eric welcomed us and provided with excellent service. Honestly, I would love to keep this place a secret because MaryEllen is an excellent cook and always feel at home when we come to visit. Each of the rooms has a history and we... More

My stay at the Sea Spray Inn was so relaxing. Mary Ellen and Eric have really got this all figured out. The Cabana Room was perfect for a gal like me, on her own in Ocean Grove. I wanted for nothing. The room was clean, comfortable, charming and well appointed. I was taking notes for my new home on how... More

Mary Ellen and Eric Tellefsen are the ultimate innkeepers! They are warm and friendly and have the most charming Inn I have ever stayed in. Amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean and beaches. There are so many things I could comment on - their attention to detail in the Inn. The furniture. The comfortable bed and claw foot tub in... More

Beautiful views, clean rooms, delicious (two-course!) breakfast, endless tea, coffee, and alcoholic drinks available, which in a dry town is not too shabby. Mary Ellen and Eric are wonderful, friendly hosts and it is the perfect place to stay if you want something quiet and comfortable.

We just returned from a weekend at the Sea Spray Inn and we were not disappointed! This was our fourth visit so we should not have been surprised at how wonderful it is there.

We had a three night stay at the Sea Spray Inn. Eric and Mary Ellen were wonderful hosts and were so helpful with any activities we planned. Our Love Letter room was beautiful. Morning breakfast was very tasty.
