I've seen several one-star reviews over the years for many properties, but they're almost always over-reactions to an incident or service slight, and rarely a fair overall rating. I don't imagine this is the worst property on the system, and because one star is defined as "Terrible", whereas two stars is "Poor", I'll go with "Poor" as the fair rating... More

I came for 3 nights of R&R and this place disappointed me from the start. It's dumpy and decrepit. I understand that it's old...old is fine...and I totally understood that the rooms would be sparse and spare. That's fine, too. What I did not sign on for was a truly depressing space that hadn't been painted or kept up for... More

This is a great find for the right traveler. My sister and I, along with my 14- and 12-year old daughters, were lucky enough to book 2 rooms (cancellations!) on a Saturday in August. There is NO two-night minimum, a huge plus. Rooms are old fashioned and very clean. My sunny room was on the 4th floor and was more... More

Booked The Albatross at the last minute and didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. It's a charming, quirky boarding house-style inn located steps away from the beach. Bill, the owner, welcomed us warmly and provided great dining recommendations. Our room was on the 3rd floor - small, with two twin beds and a sink. A shower and... More

Albatross Hotel is strategically located at the center of all attractions Ocean Grove offers; Beautiful beaches, a magnificent church/auditorium built over one hundred years ago, well maintained Victorian houses and a serene Main Street reminiscent of historic America. We have been coming to this charming enclave of peace, tranquility and rest for physical and spiritual rejuvenation, almost every weekend for... More

Whether on business like this weekend, or a few days away at the beach...I love coming back to the albatross. Location is convenient, rooms are comfortable, and the owner is always available to assist with any special requests. Save me a place on the porch, I will be back soon!
