The room was on 3 rd floor....and it was nice for two people with a decent bathroom. Not suppose to be in room anyway!

I had a great 2 night stay at the Ocean View Inn in mid June. My 2 adult kids and their partners and I stayed in the penthouse suite.

This is our second time staying here. I like it here . I'm not blown away but for the price the location is perfect . I don't know. I want to like it more but the decor is so cheesy and half way. The worst part about our stay was the room. Please know that we were told the room... More

In your case you booked on line and noted on your reservation “ bringing 5 yr. old son – have stayed in room before – know... More

We had the family suite for Labor Day weekend in this beautiful old Victorian B&B. From the time we arrived we felt welcome. Early check in, free beach towels, discounted beach passes, and free bags of chips and fruit. Continental breakfast was also included.

I've stayed here three times in the past two summers now, and have already booked a November trip - rooms are clean, cozy (I stayed in the smallest room, but even then it wasn't uncomfortable!), cool (powerful ACs!) and quiet. Breakfasts are served just across the street and have many options (more than your average continental breakfast spread), but stay... More

We have stayed many times in Ocean Grove but this was our first stay at the Ocean View. The two most important things about a B&B is the location and comfort of the bed. Five stars on both. We had a king bed in room 305 with a full sized bathroom including a shower over tub. The managers were pleasant... More

“all good rooms, but prefer a quieter one on the side.”

“Penthouse suite was plenty big and slept at least 5 people comfortably.”
 of 5 bubbles Lisapisa32, 25 Oct 2013 | Read review
“Make sure to make your reservations early based on if you want to be closer or farther away from the breakfast service. Although the Plaza and the View are right next to each other - the breakfast balcony is in the Plaza. In addition, ask for rooms that provide you with specific ocean views if that is something you really want!”
