The location was great, right on the boardwalk. I liked being near the hustle and bustle, and it was close to boardwalk bars and restaurants, which I liked. We checked in late, around 1:30 am and the front desk staff was very pleasant. The room was tiny (which was to be expected, we did not pay much for a weekend... More

Christina- Thank you for taking time to comment on your recent stay at the Beach Plaza. We are a unique beach front property and admittedly do not have the glitz and glamour of new construction. I am so glad you found Adolfo's restaurant to be so good and I am sharing your comments with their owners. More

The hotel located on the Boardwalk in Ocean City is the only amenity for this hotel. We booked this hotel based on prior reviews and pictures of the facility and much to our dismay, we found the pictures were very deceiving. The lobby was dank, dark and smelled musty. There was pain peeling on the sole elevator door. The rooms... More

Excellent value on the Boardwalk. We stay in the Bocon apartments, great value for the price. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Kelly's has good food at reasonable prices. Location is good, far enough away from the congestion for families. Will return again next year.

Beach Plaza is a great value right on the Boardwalk. The rooms are not large but who stays in the room when you are at the beach? We stayed in a wonderful room with a very comfortable 4 poster king size bed, a lounge chair and a great flat screen tv. Everyone who works at the Beach Plaza is very... More

Our travel to the beach plaza was stressful and honestly by the time we got there we just wanted to relax. It was a last minute trip and we were only staying one night. The late night front desk members are AWESOME! We had an issue with our booking but they fixed it and relieved all stress! The only issue... More

Ashley- You need to come back for more than one night. So glad to hear your stay was stress relieving, but Ocean City has so much to offer that you must return for a few days. Will share with the front desk how appreciative you were with their service. More

A friend told me about this hotel, and it was even better than I had expected! The restaurants were fantastic, and the natural food cafe downstairs was amazing. The hotel had a bike rental for reasonable rates. Most of all, the owner and staff, especially Debbie, were friendly and helpful. And, the PORCH was wonderful for catching the ambiance and... More

We decided to stay here based on decent reviews on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately, we did not have the best experience. First, the pros: good location, great parking situation, cool lobby and the porch is great. Also, friendly staff. The lobby is where the positives ended, though. The room looked nothing like the pictures on the website. The furniture was very... More

KernelBoot- Thank you for taking the time to submit a very comprehensive review of your stay. Each off season the Beach Plaza undertakes renovations and this coming winter the bathrooms are at the top of the list. Some Ocean View rooms have a better view of the ocean, but the best views are from our Ocean Front rooms. More

It was a beach front place available for Memorial Day. The main hotel is very nice with a retro vibe. Inside there was a piano player which gave a very nostalgic ambiance. Our room wasn't very beachfront it was a smaller building tucked away in the back. The decor was very dated, like a quirky old beach house museum.

I am not sure what you mean by "a small building in the back" as we have the main hotel and our efficiency apartment building on the boardwalk and then our 3 bedroom apartments are located at the end of the block.
