We came here three years ago for the first time and fell in love with the town, the inn and Gus, the owner. Just a great place and would never consider any others in the area. The conversations with Gus on the porch after a long day at the beach are probably the highlights of our stay. We feel like...

Having come up from Florida for a wedding in New Jersey, my wife and I had the pleasure to once again stay at the Bellevue Stratford B&B in Ocean Grove. I spent many summers in Ocean Grove in one of the tents, around the Great Auditorium,40 years ago. I always have fond memories of Ocean Grove, swimming at the beach...

WOW... What can I say, the close proximity to the beach, the hospitality, the antiquitous enviroment and ocean breezes are unmatched! I had the pleasure of enjoying my vacation including renewing my vows in the presence of my mother at sunrise on the boards. Gus (the owner) sees that every detail is attended to and his family was quite nice...

We recently (July 2012) vacationed on the Jersey shore, in the town of Ocean Grove, New Jersey. We stayed in the Bellevue Stratford Inn, a whimsical and very"homey" bed and breakfast place from a bygone, Victorian era. Rooms were clean, comfortable and cozy. Cleaning/changing towels,etc., was done daily. Furnishing was sufficient: each room comes with its own bathroom, TV and...

The Bellevue Stratford Inn was recommended to me by a friend. We stayed there this month and had a wonderful time! It had all the charm and ambiance of a bed and breakfast in a historic town by the shore. The room was clean, the innkeeper was helpful and the breakfast offered many choices, such as cereal, yogurt and fresh...

I am not one to complain, and I can overlook a place which may be a little bit rundown but retains some vintage charm, but when you put 2 asthmatics in a room with an air conditioner that has not been cleaned, and is full of dust and mold then I am going to complain. My mother booked this place...

For our family gathering the Bellevue Stratford Inn more than filled the bill -- owner Gus was warm and friendly, the rooms had all we needed and were cheerful, comfortable and clean. We gathered on the porches for snacks and shared dinners, enjoyed ocean views over our continental breakfasts, and the beach was only 1/2 block away. The town is...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Bellevue Stratford in July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Coming from NYC, Ocean Grove is a lovely seaside town to visit, and the Bellevue Stratford is a peaceful and charming place to stay. You can't beat the location...just a few steps from the beach!

My husband and I were looking for a last-minute room for a Saturday night on the shore in July, and the owner was nice enough to let us stay for only one night. The location of this inn is excellent, right near the beach and charming restaurants of Ocean Grove, and a close walk to the hipper Asbury Park boardwalk....
