We have stayed at quite a few b&bs over the years but the Inn at Ocean Grove is the only one we return to over and over again. The Inn's sleeping rooms are very comfortable and provide all of the regularly expected b&b amenities such as themed decor, special soaps and hand cream, lots of towels, good sized closets and I think most but not all rooms have a private bathroom. One of my favorite common areas is the combination dining/living room that has large comfy couches and huge french doors that open to a side patio with tables and the doors also provide access to the large old fashioned wrap around porch where more tables provide a shady place to eat your breakfast during warmer seasons. My other favorite is the rooftop deck, especially on a warm night, when you can hear the ocean and feel the sea breeze - very relaxing.
But the best comfort is how well the Inn managers try to attend to your needs. During one visit, our family (a couple of kids too) had a overnight get-together/birthday event and we were allowed to use the living/dining room area for the birthday celebration and it felt like home. Other times, I have had to change reservation dates or arrival times and the Inn managers were always easy going and friendly.
While comfort is important to me so is cost and the room rates at the Inn at Ocean Grove have never been out of reach for us especially during the off season when rates are a low $99 per night. We love visiting the shore in October and this year we had a great stay during a December visit for the Ocean Grove Victorian Holiday Festival. The stores and restaurants in Ocean Grove were open.
That leads me to my last most important reason for staying at the Inn at Ocean Grove - location. It is located in the great little Victorian town of Ocean Grove that has a beautiful beach (the Inn is two blocks away from the beach) and if you want a more urban feel, you only have to walk ten or fifteen minutes north via the boardwalk, streets or foot bridge to the Asbury Park boardwalk or town center. Best of all, if the Garden State Parkway is running smoothly, it only takes us an hour and a half to get there.
If you like a comfy, relaxed atmosphere and want to park your car and never have to use it during the rest of your vacation, the Inn at Ocean Grove is perfect.
