For the past 5-6 years we have been coming to Ocean Grove and having our annual China travel reunion. This is the first time we stayed at the Ocean Vista. Pete, Diane and their three daughters are hard workers and are very welcoming. The old furniture adds to the welcoming feeling as you enter the lobby. I LOVE that there... More

First off, we are normally bed-and-breakfast people; and we like a TV in the room, so we can catch up on news and watch something before we go to bed at night. We made some exceptions to stay here and we are so glad we did! This hotel is right on Ocean Avenue, which is as close to the beach... More

Have been coming here for years and love the old time charm, friendly staff and ambience of this charming town. Pete and Diane are wonderful hosts and their staff who return year after year will take very good care of you.

The people who run this place clearly are devoted to what they do. Could not ask for a better location, very comfortable, air conditioning, lots of little amenities. The room was small but was evocative of the time period that this place was built. Overall, it was a great experience.

We came to the town of Ocean Grove for the first time a couple of years ago when relatives of ours bought a summer home here. It is such a quaint town, not at all the its neighbor Asbury Park. It is a community built around the Methodist Religious Community. The Ocean Vista is a wonderful Ocean Front B&B. Check... More

Stayed for a couple of nights around Thanksgiving. The hotel looked very festive, the staff was very friendly, and my room was very comfortable, cheerful, and clean. This was the off-season so I was more interested in the proximity to shops and restaurants (quite near) than to the ocean (a short walk).

just got back from this Bed and Breakfast today. I wanted to write this review asap so that I did not leave out anything. The LOCATION is great!

We returned to the Ocean Vista for our third stay (at least) last weekend. It's almost like being a house guest: the owners are around a lot and chatty, the desk staff are friendly, the dog is lovable, and the beds are comfortable. We took a two-room and another twin-bed room across the hall. The rooms are small, but pretty... More

My husband and I spent a lovely weekend at the Ocean Vista. The property is Ocean front, just walk across the street and you are literally on the boardwalk! In fact, our room was even ocean front, so we woke up with ocean views right from our room. The house is a beautiful old style, with two gorgeous porches, perfect... More

“Higher floors are quieter, but remember you have to walk up the extra flights so you must be in good shape. We have tried most of the rooms in the hotel and found them all to be quite comfortable with nice views of the beach. Even if its not ocean front, you'll still see the sea! Plus the oceanfront porches on 3 levels are open 24/7.”
