Arriving at the Ocean House

Do you have an elevator?

Do you offer parking?

Our parking lot is located on 1st Ave. We have a limited number of parking spaces available on the property. Guests can park on a first come first serve basis. Parking spaces are not guaranteed. If you park in the lot, your car can remain there throughout your stay, but if you move the car from the lot during your stay, another guest can park in the vacant space.

We require that every guest who parks on the property display an Ocean House parking pass on their dashboard. You can obtain one from reception. 

*A guests car must be removed from the Ocean House lot on day of check-out NO LATER THAN 12PM*

What is the parking like off site?
All visitors to Spring Lake during the summer months should be aware that Spring Lake has a year-round ordinance that prohibits nighttime parking in the community between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m., except on the east side of Ocean Avenue in the diagonal parking spots. In addition, illegal daytime parking on the beach is strictly enforced. All state parking laws apply; parking in zones where the curbs are yellow is also prohibited.

The city's Third Avenue Business District hosts several sidewalk sales each summer that draw many people downtown. Visitors to Third Avenue should know that there is a three-hour parking ban from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day except Sunday.

The Ocean House is located one block from Ocean Ave between Sussex and Mercer Ave. Meter free parking around the Ocean House is available, you just need to park your car on the east side of Ocean Avenue in the diagonal parking spots before 3am if there is no space left in our parking lot.
