It comes with a very nice , fresh continental breakfast- fruit, cereal, bagels etc It is a historic building- the room and bathroom were very clean- window A/C, flat screen tv- very safe, quiet area right across from the beach.

My wife and I stayed here during the heatwave and we had a wonderful time. The town of Ocean Grove is historical and charming, and within walking distance to Asbury Park, which is filled with great restaurants. We really enjoyed staying at the Bellevue Stratford. It is close to the beach, the innkeeper, Gus, is friendly and accommodated our requests.... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to getaway from Manhattan and heard about Ocean Grove from friends. After looking at photos and reviews of a few B&B's in the town, we decided to stay at the Bellevue Stratford, and we were so glad we did! First, the location couldn't be better, with clear views of the ocean from many porches and... More

Location is great about 100 feet from the beach and Boardwalk. The center of the town is two blocks in the other direction. The host is very accommodating offering discounted beach passes and beach chairs. He allowed us to store our chairs in the house. There is ample room for personal food storage. Ample parking on the street. Rooms are... More

This inn is a great find in a wonderful Victorian town. Only 4 doors from the beach/boardwalk, the location cannot be beat. The rooms are all air conditioned and a lovely breakfast is served each morning. There are 2 decks on the back of the inn, one on the top floor with sweeping views of the boardwalk and the beach....

Although the place is a bit dated and the rooms could use a spruce up (although I understand that this is already happening with some), the friendly landlord and the proximity to the ocean make the stay worthwhile. Gus is a gregarious fellow with lots of stories to tell and a great rapport with all his guests. The breakfast in... More

My husband & I and our two boys (ages 9 and 11) stayed here for one night for a beach getaway. We had never been to Ocean Grove before and just happened to stumble on this place, and loved the location! You have to realize this is an old historic house with charm and not very modern, which may not... More

For those of you looking for updated and new..this is not the place. It's incredibly charming and adorable the way it is. The downstairs is tastefully decorated and the rooms are spacious and clean. The beds are super comfortable and the showers had nice water pressure. Gus welcomes everyone and hangs out around the house. The views from the deck... More

After leaving a B & B that I had a horrendous one night experience in, I went to the Bellevue Stratford. Not only did Gus, the owner, work with my budget (due to what I had planned to spend on the awful B & B, that I couldn't stay one more night in), but he was so welcoming and comfortable... More

Gus the owner was very welcoming and gave us all the information on the property and the location. Our room was on the 2nd floor and although the second set of stairs were steep - which is to be expected being an old house - it was do-able for even older people who can climb stairs. The room was quite... More
