My husband and I have stayed here several times in the last few years for business and pleasure, every time is pleasant. We love that it is right across the street from the beach and offers one beach pass. All the rooms we've stayed in were clean and comfortable. We love Ocean Grove and always recommend this b&b to our...

Quiet hotel (basics/low key breakfasts) with fabulous ocean view. Rooms are on the small size but suited our needs perfectly. There is no A/C but the rooms have ceiling which worked great. Also the ocean breeze is great. Will definitely be going back next year.

Bed uncomfortable, NO WIFI (it was cut off at night) forget breakfast (unless you like cereal) .. It was a disappointment, chairs outside bedroom/people talking ~ sorry it was not a good nights rest, not a warm atmosphere....

Ideal Bed and Breakfast, cozy rooms, quaint and simple, but had a very relaxing time here. The owners were so friendly and had great suggestions on what to do in the area. Will recommend this place to future friends and will be back for another visit.

Have brought my grandchildren to House by the Sea since they were 5 years old. Love the location, the owners, the laid back feeling, the cleanliness and rocking on the porch. Very family friendly and quick walk to town and lots of dining and terrific ice cream. Leslie Davis

I was hoping the other reviews about the hospitality were anomalies, but that's not the case - it was not a friendly place. Additionally, the house was old, small rooms/bathrooms, and very basic breakfast. Obviously, the price and location are the main draw so decide based on what you value.

This place is very quaint. Rooms are small but the ones with a private bath are the best. The staff is prompt with maid service in the am, usually while we were out at breakfast. Otherwise the staff is a bit stand offish. The breakfast is awful. Go out in town for a better experience. Location is the name of...

The best feature about House By the Sea is the location, right across from the beach and the porches were great. The owners/hosts were never available and Linda, the manager, had a scowl every time we saw her. Not once did she even say "hello" ! We have never stayed in a B&B that was so unfriendly! Also, be aware...

Great place to stay as long as you're not there in the heat of the summer. There is no airconditioning, and the fan on the ceiling is completely inadequate. Even with an oceanfront room there was no breeze, which you would think is impossible so close to the ocean. Breakfast is quite pathetic, not the usual fare you would expect...

We have been visiting House by the Sea for over 25 years, and I am looking forward to returning again this summer. This quaint Victorian is located overlooking the ocean---ocean breezes and the sound of the sea lull guests to a peaceful slumber each night and provide a restful backdrop to conversations on one of the three porches . Breakfast...

“The front room with an ocean view get HOT in the morning as the sun rises. I had a back room with a view and a bathroom this year and was very happy.”
