“This is NOT GRANNY'S Bed and Breakfast! Truly an Experience!”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

Put away your dusty old silk flowers and faded boring wall paper and experience a Chique, Hip, and Vibrant Bed and Breakfast in the coolest Rock and Roll Beach town on the East Coast! If you stay in the Ocean Spa SUite as we did, you can sit back in your dry sauna, or refresh yourself and loved one in the steam shower(enough room for two), while sipping Betsy's refreshments and great snacks that she brings right to your room if you wish. It is private, yet friendly and the topper is the Unbelievable Breakfast spread that Chip prepares for you and Betsy's homemade muffins while you wait. I didnt want to write this, because I dont want this place to get booked up and I cant get in.LOL, But I had to share this! Not to mention the lovely Asbury PArk!!!

Room Tip: Walking distance to both Cookman Ave. for shops and dining and one block to the beach and boardwalk.

i don't recall any other lodging - be it hotel or b&b - i've stayed in where i felt as welcome and comfortable as i did here. it's a fantastic old home and beautifully decorated. betsy and chip are very gracious and kind, and just downright cool people. and then there's chip's "breakfast" - so generous were the portions that i ate nothing else the entire day. last but not least, one must give a nod to the true owners of the property: the cats. they are awesome. i'm still considering sneaking back to steal florence, the kitten. she's so sweet. oh, and, in case all of this isn't enough, the inn is situated just minutes away from many asbury attractions: the boardwalk, convention hall, wonder bar, the stony pony, and downtown shopping and restaurants. as arnold schwarzenegger said in terminator 2, "i'll be back!" i LOVE this place.

Room Tip: i stayed in the harbor suite; it is lovely. betsy also gave me a glimpse of the ocean suite, which i...

Bright/colorful decor, open & warm welcome & informative tips about where to eat and what to do in Asbury Park. I might add generously portioned & delicious breakfasts and snacks. Cozy & comfortable quarters. 2 of us stayed in the Harbor Suite and 1 of us in the Carriage House. No request was too much for our host and hostess.

We were only able to stay one night here but wished it had been more. This is a very characterful B&B with wonderful hosts. We stayed in the Harbour suite which has one room with a large double bed & a smaller room which has an extra bed(s) (used by our adult daughter) or which can be used as a sitting room. We appreciated the kettle, fridge, tea & coffee plus the cake & fruit which awaited us.
Chip's breakfast's are huge (& wonderful) but Betsy did warn us!
The location is great & is just a short walk from the boardwalk & ocean. There are plenty of restaurants nearby & Betsy gave us a great rundown on them all. We loved the quiet atmosphere of Asbury Park (midweek in September). We hope to come back!

Room Tip: All are great.

My wife surprised me for my 40th birthday by bringing me to this outstanding Bed and Breakfast. We arrived late at night to an exquisite homemade birthday cake baked personally by Betsy and decorated with airplanes by Chip (I'm a pilot). It's hard to describe the beauty of this place, but suffice it to say that it's pure magic. The experience of staying at Asbury Ocean Beach Inn was thoroughly relaxing, which was my only birthday wish. Our immediate instinct was to book a date for our parents anniversary, which we did, and we are now looking forward to giving them such a wonderful treat. Thank you Betsy and Chip, we'll be back!

We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of June with our two girls, ages 10 and 12, and were blessed with gorgeous weather, charming accommodations, 5-star service, and delightful hosts. We stayed on the top floor Crest room -- a separate, very comfy king bedded room for my husband and myself, and a charming attic-like sitting room with two twin beds for our girls. What an incredible amount of space for a B&B. And the decor is so to my taste -- not Victorian and stuffy, but bright, clean lines, with lots of navy and blue. Love, love, love Betsy's taste. The breakfast muffins were just as good as everyone says (and I don't even like muffins ordinarily), and the afternoon tray of snacks and fruit-infused water made our girls way too happy. On top of everything else, what I really, really appreciated was how the hosts provide everything to make your beach trip as easy as possible. Beach tags, beach towels, coolers, drinks, ice packs, umbrellas, chairs, and the all-important cart to lug it all to the beach. We just brought some beach toys, boogie boards, and our suits from home. Can't ask for better. And I really fell in love with the unique charm of Asbury -- so much more hip (kinda grungy hip) than most of the South Jersey beaches. Love it that there are no arcades on the boardwalk -- only hip restaurants and the best, gourmet "truck" food you could ask for -- Korean fusion tacos, crepes, etc. Definitely plan to be back!

I went with my girlfriend and stayed in the Crest Suite for a wedding in Asbury Park. This place was awesome, we had the entire top floor to ourselves with plenty of room to stretch out. You will notice that they only have suites and not just rooms. Everything was decorated nicely and the suite was fitted with a mini-fridge, coffee/tea maker. We did miss out on the afternoon tray both nights since we had wedding plans to attend to but we heard they are legendary. Chips gourmet breakfast are simply amazing - guest are encouraged to indulge and enjoy and we did both. The crest suite is ideal for anyone traveling with a larger group or a family as there were two twin beds separate from the King in the other room. Most of the wedding party stayed in Ocean Beach and were envious of our accommodations and breakfasts displays which did not compare to what they got for around the same price. The bride who grew up spending her summers down in the area said that we by far had the nicest place in the area to stay in and how she wished they had known about this place to suggest to her guest as an option to stay. We would not hesitate to recommend this B&B or return in the future. You are in the best hands with Chip and Betsy and we look forward to hearing about their continued success. Great job!

Room Tip: King size bed in Crest Suite also top floor. Room #1 has a Sauna which was really cool to see.
