Reviewed August 28, 2013

Great view, cozy porch, clean room, relaxing unpretentious atmosphere create the perfect scenario for a weekend away from the craziness of city life. This was my second visit to the Ocean Vista and it did not disappoint. The environment is cozy and the staff makes you feel at home. Pete and Diane are nice non intrusive hosts. Rooms are on the small side but with all the essentials and who comes to Ocean Grove for the luxuries of a resort. Besides the ocean view is worth a million $.

We realized right away that we had paid way more than we are typically willing to pay primarily to see the ocean from the porch. Our basement room was freezing at night (had to ask twice for more blankets) and really noisy in the morning from the foot traffic overhead. There was old food in the fridge from previous guests and the linens were dingy. Our teenage kids were good sports about the saggy pull out chair-beds, but with all the beds in use the quarters were tight and uncomfortable. We will never go back.

If you are looking for an unpretentious, relaxing atmosphere with innkeepers whose focus is on treating you like family, you've arrived at the right place. We have been coming to Ocean Vista Hotel almost without interruption since before Pete and Diane took over and could not be happier with the level of service, cleanliness and old fashioned simple comforts like feather pillows, rocking chair porches, a cozy library and vintage decor. It has always felt like our home away from home, only better, because the beautiful blue ocean is right out front!

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter, but remember you have to walk up the extra flights so you must be in good...

I spent a refreshing five days at the Ocean Vista, where I have stayed four other times in the past seven years. As always the room was clean, the staff friendly, and the atmosphere relaxing--best of all it is right across the street from the beach. I love the balconies overlooking the ocean, the very comfortable bed, the excellent price, and the proximity to the Asbury Park boardwalk's restaurants and shops. Can't wait until my next visit!

We really enjoyed this Victorian place by the ocean. Very comfortable and friendly. Only complaint we have is that the "breakfast" consisted on little Wallmart style pastries, which was disappointing to say the least. Kind of felt ripped-off in that regard. Will come here again and bring our own breakfast.

I have been coming here for years and I have always had a wonderful time. The owners are always determined to ensure that all of their guests are comfortable and informed about area events. I highly recommend it.
