I stayed at the beach plaza hotel July 19th through July 25th with my boyfriend and our 3 year old son. When we got there we were not aware there was a ground level entrance on the side of the hotel so we ended up having to carry all of our bags in through the front. Not really an issue... More

Very nice hotel. Great location. The antiques in this hotel made you feel like you were in a different time period. Took my breath away walking into the bar in the lobby. Truly some great character. Staff was very friendly.

This is third year I've stayed here but I'm not sure if there will be a fourth. First of all I must say that the location is great and parking is convienient. It is an old hotel with regular keyed locks, classic tiled 1950's style bathroom with exposed steel pipe near the ceiling, very retro looking elevator, etc. I myself... More

Both rooms were very nice and we had tons of room! We also have 3 young kids and the location was perfect! No need... More

I must say that I was a little worried that after I booked a weekend trip to stay at the Beach Plaza it got a handful of negative reviews, but I reminded myself that they are opinions and I really must decide for myself. We had a great stay at Beach Plaza, it is the kind of hotel my husband... More

I booked this hotel for 1 night only because our condo wouldn't be ready until July 4th and we didn't want to endure the holiday traffic so came down the day before. We booked a 1 bedroom, which had 2 sleepers in the living room which worked well for the 2 kids. Our room had a dining area and kitchen... More

My girlfriend and I are a young couple and we were looking for an affordable hotel to spend some nights in Ocean City, MD. Growing up, my family and I always went to OCMD for vacation and going to a new hotel made me nervous that the experience would be different and somehow not as memorable. I couldn't have been...

Besides our beach front location, our front porch is one of our strengths as it is always enjoyable to kick back in one of our rocking chairs and watch... More

Brenda S- The mayor of Ocean City made a last minute decision to change the date of the fireworks and it is unfortunate that your stay did not coincide with the later date. Glad to read your comments about our beds and staff and hope you will be able to return later this season. More

My friend and I stayed in this hotel over night and it was ok. The beds were very nice. The room could have been better if it would have had a little fridge. The bathroom was tiny and there was really no where to put shampoo or soap while showering. Location was great and it had a large parking lot... More

Made a last minute reservation at the Beach Plaza so the family could get some beach time before the kids head off to sports camps. Amazed at how the front desk personnel remember us from our last visit in 2013. We don't know the Dew Tour was in Ocean City, but we experienced the pro skate boarders and the BMX... More

Always great to hear from our regulars. Can't believe how much your oldest child has grown. The Dew Tour was another success and will be back next year. Please let me know when you want to return so I can put you in an efficiency unit which have been newly renovated. More
