For the past 5 years a group of 20 or so gather in Ocean Grove for a weekend mini high school reunion. We use the two floor suite as our gathering place. We find the Ocean Plaza clean, comfortable & accommodating to all our needs & requests.

All of the rooms at the Ocean Plaza were freshly painted this past spring, as were the hallways and parlor areas. As for amenities, our rooms all have...

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!

Beautiful location with lovely Victorian homes on both sides of the street. The staff was friendly & helpful- thanks Vicki. It was a short block to the beach & an easy walk to the village shops. We will definitely be back. Loved it.

we stayed for a weekend in July with our family - LOVE this little gem- the location is perfect, the breakfast offered on the outside deck is great - you can make your own bagels or waffles and the coffee is good as well. The room was well appointed - the bed was comfy - you couldnt ask for more....

This was our first time to Ocean Grove, NJ and we stayed at The Ocean Plaza. We readily found parking in front of the hotel but it was after the busy season on September 7-8, 2014. The staff are extremely friendly and always asking if everything is good and if they can do anything for you. What a pleasure to...

The Ocean Plaza and sister hotel are a perfect place to call home In Ocean Grove. The rooms are exceptional and the staff are attentive and pleasant. The breakfast menu is much more expansive than most hotels. They provide beach towels and offer beach tags at a lower rate than purchased at the beach. Ocean Grove is like stepping back...

This onetime Victorian Inn has taken on a present day California style ambiance. Nestled in the heart of historic homes, the Great Auditorium and Tent City, you can park the car and walk to everything. You are one short block from the beach and the ocean vistas from the large open porches are beautiful. The continental breakfast is over-the-top with...
