Traveller (63)
Room & Suite (61)
Dining (7)
Welcome to the Grand Victorian Hotel, a beachfront property on one of New Jersey’s most pristine beaches. Open year round, the Grand Victorian is always a welcoming oasis where guests can rest, relax, and enjoy the best of the Jersey Shore! Our 22 room hotel boasts spectacular views in our clean, quaint rooms. We are in the middle of Spring Lake’s two mile boardwalk and a mere three block walk away to 3rd Ave, our downtown shopping district. Travel is a breeze, as we're only a 90 minute drive from Philadelphia or New York City, and Spring Lake hosts an NJ Transit train station for those who commute without cars. Whether you are looking for a quick, spontaneous getaway or you're searching for the perfect spot to host your next big event, the Grand Victorian Hotel is the location for you. Included with your stay with us are beach passes, access to beach chairs, and complimentary tea and coffee.

First, what I liked. Very clean throughout the hotel. Room 6 was freshly painted. We had a view from our side of the hotel of the ocean. However, there were several issues. THERE is NO SOUNDPROOFING. Everybody who walked by our room was heard very loudly. There should be a

First of all, we appreciate feedback, so thank you for writing a review. We're glad you found the rooms clean, enjoyed the hospitality of our staff, and enjoyed the ocean views we have to offer. In terms of soundproofing, we have updated many aspects of our rooms, but it is nearly impossible to fully soundproof a historic building such as this. This is similar to the restaurant's noise levels-- we make sure that they shut down at a reasonable hour to minimize noise from them as much as possible. I apologize if it caused you any inconvenience. We have heard similar remarks about the headboards, and will work to remedy any issues with that in this upcoming offseason. In regards to our pastries, we source from local, popular bakeries-- Mueller's Bakery in Bay Head and Main Street Donuts in Belmar. Both are area favorites. I apologize if you did not like them, but we do try our best to bring shore favorites into the building for our guests. We wish you the best of luck on your travels, and hope you will give us another try in the future.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Grand Victorian. When we arrived, the woman at the desk gave us a choice … room 16, which we had booked, or room 14, which had a view of the ocean. We picked the ocean view room and were very grateful. The room itself was nice. The king bed

I spent four nights here in June 2018. Unfortunately I was on the third floor. Floor one and two were renovated but third was not. Stains on the walls, chipping paint, rusted light fixtures, shabby furniture. Big difference. It was across the street from the beautiful beach

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Our third floor, shared bathroom floor is the last to be renovated, but we aim to tackle that this upcoming offseason. We hope you choose to come back and stay with us again in the future, whether it is to stay on the private bathroom floor, or if it is to experience the future updated third floor!

I stay at Grand Victorian frequently, with my mother, my sister and by myself. I’ve stayed in Rooms 2,3, 5, 6, 12 and 16 and on the third floor with a shared bath. It’s always been a delightful stay. The rooms are charming, clean, comfortable and have recently been updated.

We have eaten many times at the restaurant at the Grand Victorian (Bareli's now) and have always had a very good meal. We were both under the impression that the Inn was more of a high end B&B. To our surprise, although very clean and a friendly staff, the room was small, very

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I apologize if we ever misrepresented ourselves anywhere as a B&B-- we are a boutique hotel. It looks like you stayed with us in Room 1. Room 1 is usually a guest favorite, as it has wonderful, sweeping ocean views, but it looks like we did not live up to your expectations. We are always updating and changing our rooms to better suit guests needs, and we have actually already addressed the side table issue that you have mentioned here. Nevertheless, it is still important for us to hear feedback in that vein. In regards to Barelis, our in-house restaurant, they are a separate business that occupies the first floor of our building, and I have no jurisdiction over them. We try our best to have a harmonious relationship with them, but I do understand your concern and I will certainly share this review with them. Best of luck in your future travels!

Yes! We have an in-house restaurant called Bareli's by the Sea. Their menus are available online at the Grand Victorian website. Though no meals there are included with your stay, we do have complimentary tea and coffee available for guests to use at any time, as well as beach passes and beach chairs available for guest use.
