“Gracious, Lovely and Affordable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

The Innkeeper and staff could not be more welcoming or accomodating. The cozy rooms with private bath are tastefully appointed with in-room refrigertor and toiletries. Tis a delightful get away to enjoy the ocean vista and fine dining opportunities in the Asbury Park area. Only a short drive from anywhere in the tri-state area.. Great holiday for revitalization. Perfect!!

I have been coming here in October for the last few years for a "girls weekend". I am treated like an old friend, and definitely feel like I'm home away from home. The staff is super friendly and extremely accommodating. So much so that, after commenting to Sasha at the front desk that I loved the relaxing music playing in the lobby, he made a copy of the CD for me! Where do you find that kind of intimate care. Vicky at the front desk gave us an amazing restaurant recommendation on the boardwalk in Asbury Park. The accommodations are cozy and clean. The breakfast is varied, though just continental. I'll be back for many years to come!

Room Tip: There is no fitness center and no swimming pool, but I wasn't looking for a pool in October!

I have been coming to this bed & breakfast the last four years. I have visited in the summer and the fall. I have always found the atmosphere warm and cozy and the staff makes you feel like family. It is an enjoyable place to relax and chill.

This is a step backin time to the victorian era. This b&b is stunning! The rooms are nice sized and comfortable. Thwe continental break fast is chock full of tasty goodies! You are one block from the ocean and can walk to the wonderful shops and resturants. The food here is outstanding in all the resturants, but be sure you go to the "brick wall" on cook street. It was our favorite! .Your Hostess Vicky and host Sasha go out the their way to make your stay special. They never tired of our questions snd always stopped what they were doing to accomodate us.By the time we left they felt like family! if your looking for a relaxing and enjoyable experience, you gotta go to the "Ocean plaza b & b. it is located on 18 ocean pathway ocean grove n.y. o7756.

Stayed one night in this B&B in Sept. and loved it. Wonderful Victorian feel to the place. Our room was on the first floor so only a few stairs to the sidewalk and one block from the beach. Incredible breakfast on second floor balcony with friendly attendant. Other Victorian homes up and down the whole block -- very pleasant surroundings. Houses are all very close together, parking on the street is ok in Sept., I don't know about the season. Really cute room decor, not much extra space to put your suitcase, bathroom is nice and clean but shower is small, and it is a plastic insert that doesn't fit with the theme. None the less, who cares when the place is adorable?? Really pleasant front desk receptionists. Probably the best place in Ocean Grove and my 86 year old mother loved it too!

Room Tip: If you care about how big your room is, specify your wishes.

Our family of 5 adults, 2 kids, and a baby stayed for a long weekend in the Bradley Suite. It's a great place, nicely decorated and well kept, with a lovely ocean view from the upper balcony. The suite has two levels, with a spiral staircase between them. This is not ideal for families with small kids because the staircase is open. The master suite in the lower floor is open, meaning no door or privacy from the upper level-- so although the master suite is huge and romantic with a lovely jacuzzi tub, it might be less appealing if you have people sleeping in the living room area above! Just an FYI for large families thinking of booking.

The second bedroom is very small and a bit cramped-- about the size of the master bathroom! Which is fine for kids, but not for three adults.

This place was great and we highly recommend it-- just be aware of what the suite is like before booking!

All of the staff is incredibly nice and hospitable; Vickie even offered us her own beach chairs for use one day! There was a good variety of baked goods, fruit, and cereal for the continental breakfast, and we were satisfied!

We so enjoyed being one block away from the ocean and although we didn't have enough time fo visit inside the Auditorium, it was a block away the other direction. The Victorian homes, variety of shops, restaurants, are within easy walking distance from Ocean Plaza. Staff extremely helpful, very clean, and we enjoyed looking at the ocean while eating the buffet breakfast. We visited over the 4th of July and watched the OGNJ parade and the fireworks. We recommend a stay at Ocean Plaza and plan to return.

Room Tip: We liked the second floor as you were on the same level as the balcony where the breakfast buffet wa...
