“Wonderful overnight getaway”
Reviewed February 9, 2009

The warm welcome we received at Ocean Plaza Friday night was the start of a wonderful overnight experience for us. The rooms at the inn feature beautiful hand-painted walls decorated with charming and sunny prints. Our queen bed was comfortable with comfy pillows. There is a 2nd floor wrap-around porch where breakfast is served in the warmer months which features a beautiful ocean view. We are tea drinkers and we were delighted with tea being available whenever we wanted. The staff was very friendly and even though we stayed for just an overnight, we received special treatment. Bob went out of his way to make sure we a had an enjoyable stay. Our only disappointment was that they didn't serve a full hot breakfast, but the continental breakfast was sufficient.

We also had the pleasure of visiting the Plaza's sister inn, the recently renovated Ocean View Inn featuring a Caribbean/Tropical decor. The staff there was equally friendly, causing us to anticipate a stay at that inn next year. Though we didn't plan it, we ended up staying during Ocean Grove's chocolate lover's weekend which added to the wonderful charm of Ocean Grove. This may become an annual trip for us!

We brought a group of 12 volunteers for a weekend of workshops, planning and just some team bonding time away from the city.

We were really impressed by attentive and personable staff, the charming facilities and of course--proximity to the ocean (even in January!)

We would definitely bring groups (big and small!) back here in the future.

The Ocean Plaza was a wonderful place to stay! We went for a family reunion, after swtiching from another B&B in the area. The staff was so accomodating and friendly, the rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean. I would recommend the Ocean Plaza to anyone looking for a great weekend or vacation in Ocean Grove!
