Just came back from 3 nights at the Melrose and couldn't have been happier. The host, Randy, went out of his way to be as helpful and hospitable as possible. Even when out and bought me special bread for breakfast when he learned I was gluten free. I was impressed! They have been restoring an old inn, and filling it... More

Loved the Melrose...our host Randy was kind and attentive from the start. Our room (the Napoleon Room!) was charming, clean and cool on this hot July afternoon. Very good centralized location for exploring both the beach and the town - OG is very walkable. One of my favorite features was the downstairs porch, where we took shelter from the rain... More

My friend and I spent an amazing weekend at the beach. Our time at The Melrose only added to the experience. The B&B was quaint and adorable, perfect for a laid back beach town. Dan was such an accommodating host making us feel welcomed and comfortable from the time we stepped through the door. I will definitely stay here again!

We left planning our weekend in Asbury Park to the last minute, and after reading a number of positive reviews, we called The Melrose. We are so glad we did! Fortunately, there were two rooms left and off we went... Dan and Randy were welcoming and charming! Randy infused his explanation of what to expect and what services they provide... More

We've been coming to ocean grove for the last 9 year sand just stayed at the melrose for the first time. Throughout our trip from beginning to end, we loved our host Randy. He was so friendly, helpful, funny, and welcoming. Always there if we needed him. He cooked delicious breakfasts every morning - the best we've had in Ocean... More

We loved staying at the Melrose!! The staff are so accommodating, breakfasts are sumptuous AND they are pet friendly!! It is a very cozy and clean B & B. We also got discounts on the beach passes and they provided beach towels. We will definitely be returning next summer!

My husband and I found this wonderful home away from home in October 2015. We attended the Zombie Walk in Asbury Park, but we love Ocean Grove and had stayed there before at a different place. We originally went to the Melrose because it was the only place we could find a room! Upon meeting the host, Dan, we immediately... More

Lets remember that this is not a five star hotel so adjust your settings accordingly. The rooms are clean and confortable. The place has charm. The breakfast is great. But you stay here because Dan and Randy make you feel like you are at home. These guys are great! Also you are withing a few steps to Cookman Avenue with... More

My wife and I and our friends had an incredible time this past weekend. Our host Randy was by far the most gracious and friendly inn keeper I ever met. The early morning coffee and wonderful breakfast each day made our stay that much more enjoyable. We will be back!!

Had a great stay over the weekend. Randy is a great host and the breakfast was wonderful. I love the fireplaces in each room. They do a wonderful job during the winter house tour, I loved their hot punch.
