My husband and I treated ourselves to a night without the kids so we were looking for somplace close. We were maybe 20 minutes from home but felt thousands of miles away. We had to compare The Majestic's room and service to a 5 star castle we stayed at in europe. This hotel is beautiful, elegant. The service is spectacular and the town itself is so charming.

Although we only stayed the night, our host Val & Sean were very pleasant and accomidating. They made you feel like family,

Believe me, the next time we can arrange a babysitter, I'm heading over to The Majestic for a step out of reality and into relaxing luxury.

Stayed January 2007

Was taken back by this Bed and Breakfast's beauty and the incredible level of service. Impressed with the spacious room with kitchen and private marble bath. Nice touches with bathrobe, turndown service and warm/friendly atmosphere.

Would recommend this place to anyone. can't wait to return.

The hotel is immaculate and very stylish. We were offered a large front room that had its own balcony with ocean views. The bathroom was very spacious and had a beautiful Jacuzzi tub. The location could not be beat, one block from the beach and one block the other way placed you in the center of town. It is great to be able to park your car for the weekend and forget about it. There is a restaurant in the hotel and the food is very good. There is also a number of restaurants down the street where you can get excellent seafood dishes. The hostess, Valerie, was very gracious and helpful with local information and making any arrangements for us. I am hoping for a little break in December allows for another relaxing weekend at the Majestic.

Labor Day weekend was my second visit to this great hotel. My first was in Feb. 06 for Chocolate Lovers weekend. Ocean Grove is a great town with plenty to do and the Majestic is right on the main strip only a few houses from the beach and walking distance to everything so it is in an ideal location. The rooms are very clean and beautifully decorated, the beds are heaven. I stayed in rooms 5 and 2 and both had beautiful ocean views. There is a great porch to sit out on and enjoy the great views. It was a truly wonderful time! All the rooms have kitchenettes which is an added plus. The owners were very friendly and made us feel at home. I will definitely go back.

We stumbled on this hotel and we're so glad we did, it was perfect. We had a few days in New York, which was fast going. When we arrived to Ocean Grove we rang the owner of hotel to find directions of the hotel, within minutes she was at the train station collecting us. When we arrived to the hotel we were so impressed with the decore (seemly some designer from Tommy Hilfger designed the hotel). The rooms again were so comfortable, each room has a different theme, we had the room with a four poster bed, we just sank into the covers and matress. The hotel was just steps from the beach and the streets and shops around were all very quaint. You would hardly believe that you're just an hour away from New York. The owners were lovely and very helpful, they gave a family feel about the place. Definitely don't miss out.

The Majestic Hotel and indeed Ocean Grove are quite a find. Ocean Grove itself is this hidden unique jewel just over an hour from NYC where you can absolutely switch off. The village is charming , quaint , historical and super friendly and if feels like you have stepped back in time. Its a place where you can do a lot or do little and retain the same heart beat regardless. This is not the Jersey Shore !!

We are notorious advance internet checkers , god bless virtual tours and while the Majestic was a few dollors more than some of the other inns and it was worth every penny (of course we walked into some of the others while strolling around to validate our choice)

The hotel has all the modern amenities and the rooms are superbly furnished , four poster beds , spacious & bright , in room kitchenettes , deck chairs and passes for the beach - it really is a luxury property but still comes off as soooooo laid back even on a July 4th weekend. It is half a block from the beach and has wrap around balcony's where you can snooze off in a rocking chair while listening to the ocean ...............

Yummy continental breakfast in the lobby and fun mingling with other guests who are flip flopping around ....

I loved the hotel and loved the village and we are booked to go back.

Note we drove but do not have too - they are very close to the local train station and a cab which may be a few dollors and 2 mins drive . We did not use our car at all as everything you want is a short amble away.

The Majestic Hotel is the nicest hotel in Ocean Grove! It has been completely renovated, and is gorgeous both inside and out. Very upscale, but with a wonderful low-key feel.

The rooms are spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. The beds are soooo comfortable! Little kitchenettes, jacuzzi tubs...and only 1 block to the ocean and town. The restaurant in the hotel is great as well. There is a beautiful front porch where you can dine, and the second story has porch access, with ocean views and rocking chairs. The owners are very friendly and hospitable.

We will definitely go back!!
