Our group of friends chose Inns of Ocean Grove back in 2010 for a relaxing getaway, and have been returning on an annual basis ever since. The location is ideal, and the staff is friendly and helpful.

We have stayed at Ocean Plaza several times over the past few years and always enjoy the Inn and the area. Think small hotel vs bed and breakfast and you'll have it about right. Nicely maintained, nice but not luxurious, adequate but not your B & B signature hot breakfast. Vickie and Barry are employees, not inn-keeper owners - very...

We were part of a wedding weekend at The Ocean Plaza. The entire inn was booked for the wedding. The Inn Keepers; Vicky and Barry could not have been more wonderful in helping to arrange the rooms and many of the wedding details. The Suite used for the Bride and Groom was amazing, and all the rooms are lovely. The...

Great accommodations, the Continental breakfast was surprisingly good. I love ocean Grove even off season. It is very relaxing and peaceful. We always prefer mid week stays, parking can be challenging on week ends and the excellent local restaurants can be crowded.

We don’t often stay at B&B-type properties — my wife and I usually stay at big chain hotels. But we came to Ocean Grove for a wedding, and we booked here on the recommendation of the bride. We were SO pleasantly surprised by the hotel! Our room was lovely — plenty spacious, with super comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. The...

I have stayed here twice and both visits were nice. The staff is always friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean. This hotel sits perpendicularly to the ocean and faces a large green space to play in when you aren't at the beach. It's proximity to the beach is great and it's close to Asbury Park which has a...

Booked last-minute for an overnight escape from the city, and we couldn't have picked a better place. Barry greeted us warmly, offered to help with our bags, gave us our keys, and within minutes we were happily settled in our lovely third-floor room, with great views of the ocean right from the big comfy wing-chair in the corner. Not much...

My friends and I stayed at the Ocean Plaza in the Stokes Suite for the 3rd year. Vicki, who runs it, goes above and beyond! Friday night she puts out a spread of wine and cheese, stuffed mushrooms, eggplant, shrimp, etc etc and desserts galore. You don't need to go out to eat because there is plenty of food. There...

The Ocean Plaza is a wonderful B&B right smack in the middle of Ocean Grove, just a few steps away from the beach, and downtown OG with all the quaint little shops and boutiques. also it's walking distance to Asbury Park boardwalk. The staff at TOP is friendly especially Vickie, she was very helpful with our stay and finding things...

I booked here with plans to propose to my then girlfriend. I called ahead and spoke to Barry and I told him my plan to propose and he couldn't have been more helpful. He was willing to be available the entire night, even past 11pm to help. What I wanted his help with was to take a picture and video...
