Mary Ellen and Eric, run a wonderful home. They are very warm and Ocean Grove is a wonderful community. My wife and I spent a night for her birthday weekend. Mary Ellen and Eric gave my wife a special treat for her birthday. We strongly recommend the Sea Spray Inn to anyone looking for a pleasant getaway.

Our stay at The Sea Spray Inn in Ocean Grove, NJ was the best B&B experience of our lives! Mary Ellen and Eric know how to do it right, and their brand of generous and thoughtful hospitality is as good as it gets. From the amazing baked goods to the wonderful breakfasts and Katie, the unforgettable canine mascot of the... More

I arrived in need of rest and rejuvenation and left with visions and dreams for my business. Inn keepers Mary Ellen & Eric created a perfect environment for the Nurse Entrepreneur Retreat I attended. Their hospitality and attention to every detail was incredible. They accommodated my need for a Gluten Free diet beautifully. My first, but not last, visit to... More

Just held a Nurse Entrepreneur Weekend Workshop at the Inn. Rented the entire house. Chose it because of it's smaller size (8 guest rooms), historic city location, and proximity to the ocean, shopping and so on. The atmosphere is comfortable and quaint, service was impeccable, and food was top notch. Innkeepers Mary Ellen and Eric are warm and welcoming and... More

We are frequent visitors to the Sea Spray Inn for the last three or four years and that says it all. My husband is from Neptune City and this is our home living and beach area. We now live in Northern Virginia and we come to visit relatives in the area bi-monthly. Why do we stay at the Sea Spray?... More

I was at the Sea Spray in July with a friend and left wanting to come back with my husband. He and I got to go in October and it was a marvelous visit. It was, no joke, like seeing old friends - Mary Ellen, Eric, and Katie...and the Inn. We stayed in the Love Letter room and the only... More

Why is it (at least for me) after returning home from vacation what I was doing the previous week plays in my mind. This was my fourth visit to the Sea Spray and it certainly won't be my last. Each stay begins by choosing a different, tastefully decorated room. It is exceptionally clean, comfortable and the bed is so inviting... More

Mary Ellen and Eric are truly the quintessential hosts of the quintessential B&B. My wife and I are quite fussy. We've stayed in B&B's all over this country and abroad. WE LOVE OUR HOSTS AND SEA SPRAY! Mary Ellen knows how to welcome guests and help up-tight, out-of-towners relax and quickly settle in to a serene and beautifully decorated inn.... More

Mary Ellen and Eric make you feel at home; their hospitality is so warm and inviting. The inn is charming and clean. Mary Ellen's breakfast are scrumptious and her deserts are out of this world, especially her chocolate crumb cake (a chocolate lovers delight). Can hardly wait to go back again.
