My mother and I just returned from our stay at the Ocean View Inn in Ocean Grove, NJ. From start to finish our experience was wonderful. We have stayed at the Ocean Plaza and Ocean View before and they really do their utmost to take care of the people staying in the hotel. Both hotels are decorated beautifully, each has their own personal style, a modern, comfortable atmosphere, with old school charm. They have been restored thoughtfully and carefully and it is obvious that every detail was carefully thought out when they were decorated. It made the experience just that much better. The beautiful photograph prints in the living room of the Plaza were taken by a local artist and really make you feel that you are getting a true beach picture!
We had a very nice view of the ocean from our room which also had Wi-Fi access and cable tv. Although still young, my mother has some problems with her back and Rick happily carried her luggage up to our third floor room for her, he also came by to install a DVD player we requested so that we could do our cardio workouts. Rick also provided us with a cell phone # to reach him if we had any problems or questions and over the length of our stay was charming and willing to take, as well as deliver, some gentle teasing - it felt like we were home! Vicki is also wonderful and knowledgeable and able to answer any questions we posed to her. Upon check-in she provided us with a list of local restaurants that we might want to try and gave us a sheet with tips about each Inn. The breakfast provided was quite varied and really met the needs of anyone staying. In addition, the snacks and chocolates provided around the Inn were a nice touch when you wanted an extra treat. There are also refrigerators in some of the rooms and in the kitchen of the Inns in case you wanted to bring something back with you. The Inns also provided discounted beach passes and very nice beach towels (my favorite is the lavender and white polka dot one) for our daily visits to the beach which is only one block away! On our last day they also kept in the office items we did not want to leave in the car due to the heat and offered us the use of bathrooms for changing before our trip home.
So if you are looking for a home away from home with an upscale, yet comfortable feel, give them a try, I promise you won't regret it!
