Location was solid. Not too far from the "hot spots" but far enough away to have some space/quiet Everything else was bad, if not worse than bad. Lobby was outdated/musty/dirty. Floors in room were uneven, covered by old and worn carpet. VERY small bathroom, shower had loads of mildew/mold in every crack. Wallpaper had significant peeling in multiple spots. Walls... More

It was a cute hotel, one of the older hotels. Check-in was quick and the clerk was very friendly. The location was perfect, we were directly on the boardwalk right at the beach. Our room was not as clean as I expected - and I do expect a clean room. I expected the convenience of having a refrigerator in my... More

Debra T- Thank you for sending your constructive comments about your recent stay at the Beach Plaza. Your housekeeping notes have been shared with our executive housekeeper and we will be reviewing our bedmaking procedures. I wish we could eliminate slow shower drains, but the beach sand has away of clogging up the drains, no matter how often we snake... More

After spending a day on the beach you would like to return to a COOL room. The air conditioner was warmer than a swamp cooler. We told the staff about the problem and was told someone would look at it. The only change we noticed was the thermostat was turned up when we returned. We endured it for another day... More

Stayed at Beach Plaza for a vacation. Check in was very efficient, Randy was very pleasant and friendly. Our room was clean, with plenty of linens. There were a few ants in the bathroom, but nothing major. It was handled to our satisfaction. As for location, can't beat it. The front porch with rockers is always a great spot! The... More

We stayed at the Beach Plaza's 3 bedroom apartment. It was half a block from the boardwalk, and super convenient. Once in the unit, we walked into a spacious living/dining room with a pull out sofa, tv, dining table, and two wing chairs. The galley kitchen was stocked with dishes, utensils, paper towels, dish soap, pots/pans, etc. The bathroom had... More

Last week is the first time we have stayed here over our 25 years, as our teens wanted to be close to the boardwalk. It was such a neat hotel with old fashion features. The huge porch with rocking chairs was great, we spent a lot of time there after the beach. It's perfectly located in the middle of the... More
