We stayed at the Majestic on a busy July weekend. The location is very nice- on the main street and on the ocean block. The place was kept up pretty well. Overall, it was nice but we wouldn't stay there again. The service was not very friendly at all, for starters. Also, a manager or owner had taken up one of the public seating areas and made it her own personal office space - laptop, papers everywhere - pretty tacky. The original rooms in the front looked spacious, with some nice views, but fair warning, all the lobby noise travels right up the stairs and probably to the rooms. We stayed in the newer, added-on rooms in the back. These back rooms were very quiet and the bathroom was new and nice. The queen bed was fluffy and comfortable. But they were extremely small, just barely a bed, dresser and one wood chair fit. Your only choice was to sit on the bed. Basically, only a place to sleep. Our gripes: the wall air conditioner was broken and substituted with a window unit. This wall unit had a large broken panel dangling from it, covered with dirt and mold, which ran down the wall to the floor. Since you only had one seating space - the bed - that yucky thing was constantly in your view. We asked the front desk to clean it up and fix it but they just swiped it - didn't help at all. We finally stuffed the panel with a bunch of washcloths so we wouldn't have to look at it anymore. The wireless does not work in the back rooms - we had to keep going downstairs to the lobby. On our second day, we left for the morning and came back and discovered we were missing one of our keys. We searched high and low, in the car, etc. because we didn't want to get charged for a lost key and key ring. When we told the desk the next morning at checkout, she looked, said she had it, and that the maid must of thought we checked out yesterday so she took it. Really?? We didn't want to take our clothes and luggage with us? Also, the breakfast was nothing special and often ran low before being stocked up again. I know this is a hotel with it's own public restaurant, but during the day, there wasn't a single refreshment or snack out for guests - no water, coffee, an apple, a cookie, nothing. So if you're looking for that nice B&B experience, this is not the place for you. We stay in Ocean Grove every year, trying out new places to stay, and I have to say, while this place was nice in some aspects, for the price, small room, and not-so-friendly service, I would choose another place.
