The personal, friendly approach started with phone inquiries and continued through our 2-night visit. Pleasantly surprised that our rooms were ready well before normal check-in time, allowing us to settle in and get to the beach before noon. Beach blankets and towels generously provided. Sunny, small rooms with comfortable beds; size compensated for with balconies overlooking the beach and Victorian... More

Great view, cozy porch, clean room, relaxing unpretentious atmosphere create the perfect scenario for a weekend away from the craziness of city life. This was my second visit to the Ocean Vista and it did not disappoint. The environment is cozy and the staff makes you feel at home. Pete and Diane are nice non intrusive hosts. Rooms are on...

We realized right away that we had paid way more than we are typically willing to pay primarily to see the ocean from the porch. Our basement room was freezing at night (had to ask twice for more blankets) and really noisy in the morning from the foot traffic overhead. There was old food in the fridge from previous guests...

If you are looking for an unpretentious, relaxing atmosphere with innkeepers whose focus is on treating you like family, you've arrived at the right place. We have been coming to Ocean Vista Hotel almost without interruption since before Pete and Diane took over and could not be happier with the level of service, cleanliness and old fashioned simple comforts like...

I spent a refreshing five days at the Ocean Vista, where I have stayed four other times in the past seven years. As always the room was clean, the staff friendly, and the atmosphere relaxing--best of all it is right across the street from the beach. I love the balconies overlooking the ocean, the very comfortable bed, the excellent price,... More

We really enjoyed this Victorian place by the ocean. Very comfortable and friendly. Only complaint we have is that the "breakfast" consisted on little Wallmart style pastries, which was disappointing to say the least. Kind of felt ripped-off in that regard. Will come here again and bring our own breakfast.

I have been coming here for years and I have always had a wonderful time. The owners are always determined to ensure that all of their guests are comfortable and informed about area events. I highly recommend it.

We had a very nice basement apartment room with refrigerator, microwave.and a separate entrance. The hotel is oceanfront and although we could not see the ocean from our room, it was terrific being able to come and go privately and the room was comfortable and large, although, you can hear nightly coming and goings above your head, so this is...

Ocean Grove NJ has many hotels and many of them are heavy on Victoriana period decoration. The Ocean Vista is not one of them. The hotel is simple, uncluttered, and comfortable. The staff and owners are friendly and down-to-earth, including their dog, Roscoe. The hotel faces the beach, and what morning views you get from the porches! The coffee is... More
