never spent a night at such an uncomfortable place. When we arrived, the room on the third floor and halls were burning hot, may be 120 degrees. Couldn't get comfortable also because one of the bed headboard was broken. The good thing was breakfast next morning. We left right after that even though had planned to spend most of the day.

"Great location and breakfast"
Phil and Kathi are great hosts. Phil suggested a few places to eat in both Ocean Grove and Asbury Park. Phil and Kathi have been doing this a long time and they made us feel at home. The breakfast was delicious. The Carriage house is in walking distance to the beach, boardwalk, restaurants and shops. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Ocean Grove is a nice town. It was an easy walk to Asbury Park.

"Very nice except for Room 6"
Our two day stay was very pleasant. The location is excellent. Only drawback was our room # 6. The double bed is against the wall on one side. The floor is not even so the head of the bed is lower than the feet, which was very uncomfortable. I asked if there were any other rooms for our second night and was told no, although the inn did not seem full.

"Lovely B&B with a great location"
Lovely B&B one block from beach with boardwalk and one block from Ocean Grove's small shopping district. Owners are very nice and breakfast Saturday morning was outstanding. Only drawback was the third floor room with no elevator and size of room but for one night it was definitely OK. Would definitely return.

Nice bed and breakfast. Excellent staff, very friendly. Very good breakfast. Our room was a little small, but it served it's purpose for us. We were in town for a wedding and wanted to stay overnight as opposed to driving home after the wedding. Overall a very pleasant experience.

The B&B was very nice. Extremely clean nag the breakfast was scrumpus. Ocean grove is a little quaint town with lots to do. The restaurants are very good. We especially liked sea grass and the starving artist. Go to Days for ice cream! The main st has great little shops. Asbury is a quick 10 minute walk and there's a lot to do there as well.

"Wonderful location just off the beach"
This old Victorian was recently remodeled and is quaintly decorated in the period style,down to the breakfast china. We had a view of the ocean which is just a short block away. Our visit during Chrismas was especially nice as the house was cheerfully decorated for Christmas, and so were most of the Victorians around us. The Holiday season is a good time to visit, very uncrowded. The proprietor is very pleasant and attentive to guests. The gourmet breakfast on the weekend had a special egg dish and assortment of pastries and desert each day, and was quite plentiful. Excellent restaurants abound within 20 minutes walking distance down the boardwalk.

"Victorian Dollhouse Setting"
In Ocean Grove, NJ, a Landmark Community maintaining a late 19th C. look and feel, this B&B is an Award Winner for looks and style. The ambiance is charming and quaint, but also comfortable and with modern conveniences. Along with the curios and knickknacks, cushions and antiques the Carriage House includes free wi-fi and premium cable. The hosts are delightful, helpful and providers of fantastic breakfasts too. It's like a trip back to a gentle time in a lovely town, yet with no sacrifice of comfort. And, the rooms are a block and a bit to the beach and two streets from Main Ave. shops and restarurants. A wonderful place to relax, a great choice to vacation.

we really enjoyed our stay here. we knew we would get a small room , but i forgot to realize that it was very small. despite that, we were still comfortable. bed sheet kept on falling off the mattress. breakfast, which was included was good and creative, but we would have been a lot happier for the basics - scrambled eggs, rolls, bagels and cream cheese. coffee was a bit on the weak side also. however, the owners were very attentive, and super helpful.

We were at the Carriage House for three nights. Kathi and Phil are very gracious hosts. The Inn convenient to the beach and owners provide beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels. Breakfast was superb: homemade croissants, blintzes, and delicious quiches. Our room was clean and comfortable. Phil's dining recommendations were excellent and there is much to do within an easy walk from the Inn.

"Quaint hotel near beach"
We chose the hotel for proximity to family. it was a bonus that it was near the beach. the owners and staff were friendly on arrival, the rooms had charm and were clean but typical to bed and breakfasts, the beds were barely comfortable, the floors and hallways sloped, the room was small and hard to find a place for suitcases and the bathroom lacked convenient shelves for toilet articles. (We did observe larger , nicer rooms but we had requested twin beds).The breakfast was a bit odd,,,,eggs over easy with a minimal garnish, ordinary store boughtwhite bread toast, poor quality natural yogurt "parfait" with berries and a good pear tart that was ruined by inexplicably being doused with heavy cream (liquid). The food didn't go together well/

"Very brief stay...."
The place was nice and the location was excellent, right down the street from the beach. I paid $150 for the reservation via Expedia. We checked in at 7 PM and left by 5:30 AM ( to run a marathon nearby). So all we really did was sleep there. We didn't get to enjoy the breakfast that they serve from 9 to 10 AM as part of your "fee" because of the marathon. I asked the owner if I could come back and shower after the marathon, because I had a 3 hour drive back home afterwards and he said no and really didn't seem to even consider it. I was disappointed with this response, because I've done several previous marathons and not one other hotel has not allowed me to come back to shower. Trust me, a shower is certainly needed after running for four hours. That kind of soured me on the place. Being a small B&B, I would think they would be more willing to make these kind of accommodations for their guests, since customer service and word of mouth is so important these days. Luckily a Gold's Gym near the finish in Long Branch was kind enough to allow me to shower! In the future, I would stay at a larger hotel, since they have always let me come back after the race was finished to shower and I really appreciate that. Lesson learned.

This place is absolutely gorgeous and immaculately clean, the service is superb, and they serve the single best breakfast I have ever had in my life. From the adorable decor to the Ralph Lauren towels to the rock candy sticks provided to stir your hot tea, the Carriage House is all about the details, and I cannot say enough great things. I've traveled to a lot of places, and I've never stayed at a finer place.

"Not from visitors from abroad!"
My husband and I were greeted with a friendly welcome by the owner who viewed our large and heavy suitcases with dismay. Our room was on the 2nd floor and no lift. It is an old hotel, as befits the area, with lots of nooks and crannies. Visitors from abroad should be warned that none of the rooms have wardrobes, or indeed any hanging space, and we had arrived from England with all our finery for a wedding! Our host quickly provided us with several hangers and we had to make use of 3 hooks on the wall and by using the shower rail (which was very flimsy). None of the rooms have wardrobes and the owner said he was never asked about this as most of his guests just came for the beach - and Americans tend to rarely change for dinner, etc. The shower in the room was very old and poor. The water took a long time to empty from the basin. The floor was on an incline in our bedroom. Room 7 is only suitable as a children's room. The rooms on the lower floor are very much larger, with balconies, but still no hanging spaces! Having paid in advance for 5 nights, we left the very next morning to find more suitable accommodation at our own expense, although the owner managed to let one of the nights and he kindly repaid us the money for that night. Breakfast is very lavish but very strange food to an English palate!

Das Zimmer war zwar relativ klein, aber das ist bei der Umgebung eher unwichtig. Die Zimmer sind alle mit liebevoll ausgesuchten Details dekoriert. Das Frühstück nimmt man von altem Prozellan ein.

"First experience "

My sister has been to a couple of B & B's in Ocean Grove, but this was our first experience at a B & B. It was a wonderful experience! The Carriage House has been beautifully restored! The owners very friendly and very helpful. Rooms were very clean. Breakfast was included and it was very good! We would definitely stay there again. It was 1 block to the beach, close to Main Street where there are shops and within walking distance to Asbury Park,

"Almost perfect."
08/18/15 Mansfolly NJ
I recently stayed at the Carriage House overnight for the firs time. Generally speaking it was very good and I would probably stay there again. The good: One block from the beach/boardwalk. A few blocks from the town center. It was quiet and peaceful. The owners are very friendly, warm people. The common areas are very nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable and it was clean. They have a library area on the main floor and a DVD library and large TV on the lower level. The prices are comparable to nearby B&Bs. Premium cable in the room and Wifi. Water, soda, ice cream available for $1.00. Discounted beach badges, beach towels. Room #3 had a little sitting area, gas fireplace. Use of beach towels even after you check out. The bad: The lighting in the bathroom was extremely dim. There were no complimentary toiletries in the bathroom (I'm glad I decided to bring my own shampoo and conditioner, etc.). There was no alarm clock, I had to request one. Although 24/7 coffee is advertised, it is not brewed coffee, but the kind you steep with hot water. That, for me, doesn't really hit the spot. Breakfast is late, 9am and only for 1 hour -- although the breakfast and its presentation are lovely. No brewed coffee available prior to 9am. I think it wouldn't be a big deal for the staff to brew a pot of coffee for the guests in the morning (can you tell I like coffee?). The room could have had a few more decorative touches (a full bouquet in the vase for example) which could transform the room from blah to ah. Yes, the property is for sale - but while it is still in business, I would recommend a stay at this B&B.

Location is great. !! Short walk to the boardwalk and into town. The host and hostesses are wonderful. But the rooms are very small and dated. There are no amenities in the bathroom except for a small bar of soap. Breakfast is only served at 9 am. Not even a pot of coffee made in the morning. !! Breakfast was eligently served but not scrumptious by any means. The property is up for sale! Will not stay here again

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night towards the end of May. The owner was very nice and welcoming. Breakfast in the morning was great. The house was very well kept and beautiful. We stayed in Room 4 and had a view of the beach. We had our own fireplace and bathroom. The other guests were friendly and inviting. We even shared a drink with a couple celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary out of the porch. Ocean Grove is a beautiful town. Most restaurants are BYO since the town is dry. Lots to do within walking distance of the House. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to stay in the area.

"Great B&B in Ocean Grove NJ"
05/17/15 DaveatClifton Clifton, Virginia, United States
Stayed over night while up for a concert at the Stone Pony, which was easily within walking distance via the beautiful and very safe boardwalk. Room was nice, and spotlessly clean. Great location and nice owners! Breakfast was gourmet, but was heavy on eggs and dairy (and I'm vegetarian very close to being a vegan, so wish they had more veggie choices..but for those that don't worry about such things, you'll likely love their spread). Loved sitting on the porch and watch the world go by. Definitely recommended.

"December Wedding Night"
01/01/15 fyaren
My husband and I chose this B&B for our wedding night. Having grown up nearby, we knew the area very well. I chose this place because I wanted somewhere quaint, close, and romantic. We were the only guests (late December) and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We had room #1 - queen sized bed, private bathroom, door to the balcony that extends the whole second floor. Being our wedding night, we did not take advantage of everything they had to offer. The B&B is a block away from the beach; having been to Ocean Grove in the summer I can attest to the beach being very nice and other times I have enjoyed sitting out on the balcony reading with the sea breeze. The breakfast was delicious. Being the only guests we ate alone - nice and cozy - next to a fire. I was happy the breakfast was not the typical cold cereal and bagels kind of affair. This is definitely a place we are going to return to.
