I enjoyed our stay at the HJ Oceanfront Plaza Hotel the hotel was well kept very clean and right on the boardwalk. We also enjoyed the access to the various restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. The beach was a hop skip and jump from the hotel. The staff was friend and helpful.

7 day stay and truly enjoyed it. Rooms need to be upgraded, especially carpet and bathroom. Room was very clean and staff were very courteous. Ladies at the front desk really went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Looking forward to another stay.
