My wife and I stayed here for a weekend and had such a great time. The Shawmont staff were all so very helpful once we arrived. You couldn't ask for a nicer group of people. Our room was clean, and the a/c refrigerated our room. LOL. Breakfast was light, (bagels, yogurt, juice, danish, fruits, and juice) The coffee and tea were always available. Nights spent on the outdoor porch were a taste of Heaven, not to mention attending Big Splash which was fantastic! I would certainly stay there again. My only reservation about writing this review is that it would tell others about such a hidden gem and there would be no rooms left if we wanted to book again. LOL.

Room Tip: Request a room on the lower floor if you have difficulty navigating stairs....they are pretty steep.

Every year, I need some time to chill and regroup, and be free of life's day-to-day stresses. The Shawmont fits the bill for me, and this year was no exception. It's a clean, bright, well-maintained inn, across the street from the beach. In addition to a nice breakfast, they serve the best coffee on earth...TM Ward, NJ's finest..and it's available all day long!! Thanks to Joanna, Diane, Sue, and Imperia for all their hard work in making the Shawmont a real gem!

My family blocked off several rooms here for my cousins wedding. It was a very nice quaint hotel. Our room was a single room and rather small but I honestly have no major complaints with my stay here. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. My cousin did have a bigger room with a double bed and a balcony and her room was much more pleasant then ours. Overall great stay. Wonderful location right across the street from the beach!

Stayed at the Shawmont and had a great stay! Check in went smoothly and the hotel even asked what we liked for breakfast and had bananas and oatmeal ready for us in the morning!

The room was extremely clean and nicely decorated. The air conditioning was cool and much needed during a hot weekend.

Ocean Grove is such a nice quiet town. The hotel is located right on the beach and within walking distance to lots of unique shops and things to do. Also within walking distance of the updated Asbury Park boardwalk and shops as well. A great place to visit in the summer - especially if you are looking for Jersey Shore without the drinking and drama. Great place for family and kids.

Arrived in Ocean Grove late, but this beachfront hotel still had a vacancy sign outside. Stayed an extra day because the room was so clean and tidy and I could hear the ocean waves at night. And, unlike Delaware beaches, the ocean water was clear at this location on the shore. Explored Ocean Grove and nearby Asbury Park on foot the next day. This hotel is within easy walking distance of several excellent restaurants and the coffee shops and antique shops of nearby Asbury Park. Great boardwalk for jogging early in the AM. This hotel is just a little over a half mile from the train station. And the early season rates were quite reasonable. Stay for a couple of days on a short trip from Manhattan for an quiet, peaceful break , with all the amenities. Air conditioning, if needed was modern and efficient. My room had new windows, which were easy to keep open at night for cool sea breezes.

Room Tip: Go for a room with a balcony, there are several.
