"Best weekend getaway" We have been staying at Ocean Paza for over 5 years and enjoying their great hospitality. Rooms are kept immaculate. Tripadvisor Member Review - August, 2015

"I really do not want to review this B and B..." because then EVERYONE will want to go and I am being possessive and don't want to share!! Seriously, we LOVE this B and B - I cannot say enough good about the Ocean Plaza - location? You got it...Ambience - LOADS - comfy beds, great porches, a wonderful comfy living room to just relax in, music on the porch via speakers, great rooms - a fantastic breakfast served on the 2nd floor balcony/porch. Snacks in the basement area, chocolates in the living room, fresh fruit in the living room - and the nicest bunch of people I have ever met in my life. As much as I would like you to NOT find this gem, you MUST.  You too will become possessive. Enjoy - Ocean Grove is a jewel and the Ocean Plaza SPARKLES!!!" - Tripadvisor Member Review - July 2015

"The best Jersey Shore hotel I've ever stayed at." Clean, Clean, Clean! Close to the beach and restaurants. Nice family atmosphere. Great views of the ocean and beach." - Tripadvisor Member Review - June, 2015

"Beautiful place close to everything". "We loved this place. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Hosts very gracious. The front porch is a perfect place to relax. Just steps to the boardwalk and beach and a 15 min. walk to Asbury Park for nightlife and the Silver Ball Museum...Highly recvommend." Tripadvisor Member Review - June, 2015

"Amazing Hospitality - Already booked my next trip." "What a beautiful weekend at the Ocean Plaza - such amazing hospitality-Vicki and the rest of the crew made us feel so welcome and at home (and so special).

“The absolute perfect place for a peaceful getaway"! "The feeling of just pulling up to the Plaza is the best feeling ever!! The staff is warming, welcoming, and make you feel right at home! Always going a above and beyond to accommodate everyone!!! I call it heaven on earth! No matter what time of year you's just pure amazing!"– Tripadvisor Member Review – Nov., 2014

“A Wonderful New Jersey Shore Winter Weekend at the Ocean Plaza" – “We stayed Friday and Saturday and took advantage of their Winter-weekend-package offer that includes a free cheese platter and bottle of wine, a $60 credit for a simply superb dinner at Yvonne's Cafe restaurant only two blocks away, and a $15 credit for a purchase at nearby Nagle's restaurant. The North Jersey shore is NOT just for summer visits. Consider coming to Ocean Plaza this Winter to experience it yourself." – Tripadvisor Member Review – Nov., 2014

"A fantastic stroke of luck to find you on a random drive down the Jersey Shore. Loved it!”!” – Guest Book - Chris, Canterbury, VT – Nov. 9, 2014

“Wonderful place & great views! Vicki is very helpful & caring.” – Guest Book - Pakravan family reunion, Chicago IL,

“A Perfect (Wedding) Weekend Away” -  “I cannot recommend the Inns of Ocean Grove and the manager Vicki Palmer enough for any sort of event, trip away, or in my case, a wedding weekend over Memorial Day weekend. To start with we stayed in the Ocean Plaza, which has all the charm of a bed and breakfast but is managed and maintained like a boutique hotel…Vicki helped us from start to finish, arranging for room blocks for my friends and family to make reservations, to helping me arrange for our casual rehearsal dinner on the upstairs wraparound porch, to helping me just get to know the area. She and her staff allowed my friends and family who came out for the weekend, which numbers in the 30's, to enjoy the full range of the hotel to all hours, and we caught up with people who came from all over on the wraparound porch, the deck, in our rooms, and in the foyer. Everyone was so kind and accommodating and helpful. If you are planning a wedding in Ocean Grove or Asbury Park (I was the latter), or if you are arranging a family reunion or some other get together at the beach, please keep Vicki and the Inns of Ocean Grove in mind. I know we will be back, hopefully many times to come, whether as a group or just ourselves.” Tripadvisor Member Review – Oct., 2014

“Ocean Plaza was a lovely, relaxing, and accommodating getaway with amazing hospitality.”-"highly recommend this quant bed and breakfast. They are lovely hosts and the amenities are awesome! They provide a satisfying Continental breakfast in a cozy breakfast area with a charming fireplace overlooking the ocean. The rooms have comfortable beds all with private bathrooms, cable, WiFi, and refrigerator. The laid back and friendly vibe of the place makes you feel that you are in a home away from home."

“A Real Jewel on the Jersey Shore” – “Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Your staff was exceptional!! They went above and beyond to take care of every detail and all with a smile as they exuded positive energy. We enjoyed our stay so much and cant wait to return soon again!” Tripadvisor Member Review – July, 2014

“Great Bed and Breakfast”
Very clean, very accomodating and truly a special place. I have stayed here at least 4 times and have nothing but great things to say about the place and the staff. Continental Breakfast is included and the view of the second flooor balcony where breakfast is serve is breathtaking! Tripadvisor Member Review – Sept., 2014

“Exceeded expectations on ALL levels” – “This was our first time to Ocean Grove, NJ and we stayed at The Ocean Plaza…What a pleasure to stay at this location. The beds were very comfortable; towels were fluffy and smelled wonderful. Even though the Inn was booked, there was no noise throughout the house and our sleep was wonderful. The continental breakfast has everything you could want and actually exceeds expectations on what is usually provided elsewhere. The porch is comfortable and people sit outside drinking wine, eating cheese and just hang out and talk with the other guests. We had an incredible experience and will plan to be back next season. THANK YOU!”Tripadvisor Member Review – Sept., 2014

“Wedding in Asbury Park in October” - I encouraged my wedding guests to stay at the Ocean View Inn and the Ocean Plaza and people liked both venues. The Ocean Plaza is prettier from the outside and the Ocean View Inn is more modern and beautiful on the inside I think. Both are really nice, though. The bridal party stayed in the penthouse suite in the Ocean View inn the night before our wedding and we got ready in there the day of the wedding. The room is really big, we slept 5 comfortably but you probably could have slept 2 more people. There was plenty of room for 3 hair stylists, 2 photographers, my parents, and 12 ladies the day of too:) [Vicki] was easy to deal with and helpful, she suggested vendors to us before the wedding and offered us an entire refrigerator to store the wedding flowers in overnight as the bridesmaids and my aunt did all the flowers ourselves the day before the wedding. When the girls arrived the fridge was stocked with water bottles for us as well as cookies and grapes for treats. It was a nice surprise! My husband and I spent our wedding night here too and really enjoyed it. Tripadvisor Member Review, Oct., 2013
