The Ocean Plaza is like a rooming house for vacationers. There wasn't very much service or interaction with staff. Breakfast was continental and self-serve. I would have preferred more services, and a hot breakfast.

The staff made us feel completely at home and gave us a pleasant space to be together with our friends. The beds were comfortable and everything we needed was provided. We appreciated the quiet when we retired.

The Ocean Plaza was a very comfortable, cosy, and charming Inn for a lovely September weekend. The hotel staff was welcoming and charming, and breakfast on the terrace was lovely. The hotel is located one block from the beach/boardwalk. It is a quick walk 15 minute walk to Asbury Park.

We recently stated here while visiting some family in central Jersey. We enjoyed a lovely, late Fall, walk along the beach and there's a quaint Main Street just a few blocks from the B&B. The room was comfortable and breakfast, which was served in the enclosed second floor balcony, was basic but filling. This isn't a luxury B&B but we...

Decided to stay two days at the Jersey Shore, went online and found this perfect place. We love Ocean Grove anyway, so we wanted to be close to the beach. The Ocean Plaza is right on the main street one block from the ocean. Air conditioned, new rooms, but the hotel itself has old world charm, front porch, living room...
