Loved this B&B so much. I haven't stayed in a B&B in a long time and this has renewed my love for the quaint inns and B&B's of the Jersey shore. The staff here are so friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Our room was darling and we even had a view of the ocean. We were on the 3rd... More

The Ocean House is a wonderful B&B to stay in, just a block from the beach, with chairs/towels/bikes that you can rent (for no charge) at any time. It's just a few minute walk away from Third Avenue, which has a couple of great places for lunch and dinner. Breakfast was pretty good, and the place as a whole really... More

The Ocean House is a B and B a block from the beach. The owners Colleen and Jared are friendly, warm people and the staff follows int their footsteps.. They are extraordinarily... More

My husband and I took a weekend trip for our anniversary this past weekend and we had another place in mind before looking at this spot, they were booked up, we called The Ocean House since it was closer to our home without being near Seaside they took us right in. Getting to the location was super easy. The room... More

This is a great old fashioned bed and breakfast hotel. The employees are so nice and accommodating. They make you feel so welcome and like a member of their family. It is a very relaxing place. You can sit on the porch outside or ride their bikes around the area. It is one block from the beach and a few... More

We have came here for the last 2 years now. We plan on making It a yearly trip. There was one problem that I will not address because when I brought it up to management, they corrected the problem by offering something to make up for it. They also didn't charge us for the late checkout. The owners kids (that... More

Visiting Spring Lake for 20 years, and have been staying at the Ocean House for about the past 5 years. It is a wonderful, charming place, complemented by the warmth of the innkeeper and family. The place is filled with history and we enjoy hearing the stories of how things once were. The porch is very inviting and comfortable. The... More

We had a beautiful stay at the Ocean House. We felt right at home. Their hospitality was aimed to please. Hot tea and coffee, a delicious and plentiful breakfast, cookies, and fresh lemon water and ice. We can't think of anything that would have made our stay any better. Jared, family and staff met our expectations. This place gets a... More

It was a perfectly acceptable place to spend a night/weekend, but its not setting a high bar to get past. From the multi-painted doors that don't quite close easily to the weak water pressure, everything in the building could be looked at with rose colored, half full glasses. It is a nice enough place, and with a cordial staff, we... More

We stood at this hotel in April. Nice place. Parking a little difficult. Staff exceptional and really nice owners. Would recommend staying here as it is close to the beach and a nice location. Breakfast was nice and rooms are very comfortable and spacious
