I just returned from 4 days/3 nights at The Melrose in Ocean Grove. It was my first visit there and what a great experience. Location is perfect - a block from the beach, a few blocks from the restaurants in Asbury Park and a few blocks to Day's Ice cream. I stayed in the "Chinese Room" perfect for one person - though the room is small, the shower was great as well as the bed and the a/c kept me nice and cool during the hottest time of the summer. Randi is delightful and made me feel like a welcomed member of his family. Breakfasts were great - always juice, fruit and pancakes, omelets,or french toast. The homemade cookies at the end of the day was a nice touch not to mention delicious. Having a fridge in the room was great. Recommend this place to all.
