We stayed at the beach plaza hotel July 2012 & July 2013. We were so pleased in 2012 with our room that we booked again the next year. I would advise asking for a side ocean view room because the view is amazing! That is unless you booked an ocean front! The second year we forgot to do this &... More

We have traveled all over the world and have stayed at many different types of hotels, both in their star ratings, as well as their target clientele. The Beach Plaza Hotel in Ocean City, MD was by far our worst experience. Upon first arriving on a stormy night, we found that most of the electricity was out in the hotel.... More

This was our worst experience ever! We booked our vacation on Sept. 27,2013. We verbally confirmed it for Oct 10 thru Oct 13, 2013 with Amy . It was all good. A confirmation e mail was sent and I filed it away. On Oct. 10th we were driving and were running late. I called the Beach Plaza to inform them... More

Kathy C- While you may have meant to make your reservations for the weekend of October 10-13, when you called you made them for the previous weekend. Both your email confirmation and the written confirmation stated the dates of October 3-6. You presented the letter at the front desk and admitted that you hadn't reviewed the letter. Not withstanding, the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in an efficiency apartment in mid-September, while my aunt and mother stayed in a room in the hotel proper. The staff was very helpful, and the veranda filled with rocking chairs was charming--great for people watching during the day and canoodling at night. We literally walked out our door, crossed the boardwalk and were on... More

Beach Plaza Hotel in Ocean City Maryland.......great place to stay. We have gone here every year for the past 10 years. Right on the boardwalk. Just walk out the door and you are on the beach.

I took my fiancee here as kind of a post-engagement trip (proposed at a scenic location on the way there.) Staff was friendly and had no problems at all with the people there. The part about it that stinks is the facility in general. It needs some updating pretty badly, the outside looks very nice, but the inside is nothing... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for Bike Week and loved the hotel when we first arrived. Yes, it's an older hotel, as many are in OC, but the beds, pillows, blankets and toiletries were much nicer than what you'd receive in most other hotels.
