This is our second year back to Ocean City which we love, and to this hotel. The staff and Tim, the Manager, make everything pleasant to stay here. We arrived earlier than check in time and our room was ready. I'm sorry to say we had an issue this time. So we take the elevator up to the 6th fl... More

I have stayed at this hotel for the past 3 years and am sorry to have to write a less than good review. The front desk staff was, as always, very pleasant and helpful in checking us in. But as we exited the elevator on the fifth floor, there was an awful odor! By the time we walked to our... More

Unfortunately, you arrived a few days after we had a broken water pipe that did cause a number of rooms to get wet. As you mentioned, it wasn’t so much in the guest rooms but rather in the hallways on a couple of floors. I apologize for the furniture in one of the hallways but as you know, we were... More

This place has the friendliest staff, who always try to accommodate every request, like getting you into your room before the official 4pm checkin time. AC is the best of any hotel I've stayed at. Beds are the most comfortable of any I've stayed at. And of course being right on the boardwalk at 9th Street, you can't get a... More

Had a quick trip down for weekend. The room was spacious and clean, the view great. The staff at the the bar was friendly and helpful. Beer selection made Hubby happy. It was nice to have all the shops right downstairs-made the ice cream run much easier. Wide beach. Had a small bit of trouble with a leak after the... More

Thank you for your comments. I’m glad our amenities and services met your needs. I do apologize for the leak after that rain and as it turned out, it became much more than a leak. I appreciate that you felt we were responsive and helpful because in situations like the one we were faced with, we are often limited in... More

For Labor Day weekend, I was looking for a hotel on the boardwalk of Ocean City, MD, which would allow dogs. I was able to book a room at the Paradise Plaza Inn, at a reasonable rate (incl extra charge for the dog). In reviews, I had read that there wasn't enough parking. True the main lot was limited, but... More

Thank you for searching us out. I appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with others. I am the first to admit that we are not the “Taj Mahal”, nor the glitziest or shiniest. Our rooms are not 5 star but they are clean and offer the amenities most guests are looking for and offer an excellent price... More

We usually stay at Park Place when we visit Ocean City but this trip we wanted to be closer to other family members staying in O.C. I prefer the other location but this location is not bad. The room was clean and though we were not ocean front but side view we had a very nice view of the boardwalk... More

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to accommodate your family during your recent stay. I agree the Park Place is a very nice hotel and very similar to ours in size, amenities, rates and services. We work closely with them referring business back and forth. I appreciate you mentioning that the rooms were clean and location, not bad. As... More

I booked two rooms in February for a vacation in September. I asked then if my two rooms could be together so my guests could be next to us. They said they can possibly do that. Then I called again in August just to remind them of my request.. Yep it's on there.. Then I arrived. My rooms were on... More

As we tell ALL of our guests at the time of booking their reservation(s), we will gladly log your “request” but that does NOT mean that it is a guarantee. Although we will block your requests at the time of booking it is often necessary on the day of arrival to juggle rooms around so we can accommodate ALL of... More

I don't know how this hotel got such high ratings. This hotel is old and gross. Where do I begin? Everything is beat up and old. The carpet in the elevators is disgusting. The hallways are not air conditioned. The floors are tile, which I don't like because of the sand. That is a matter of preference. The shower made... More

I apologize that you were dissatisfied with your stay at the hotel. Need I remind you that you are at the beach after three months of extremely high traffic in and out, sand and water being tracked through the lobby and elevators on a constant basis. You could literally clean the elevator every 10 minutes only for the next guest... More

I was hesitant to stay here based on some of the reviews...I was glad I have it a shot! I wanted a clean room on the boardwalk for 2 nights with my teenagers (3). The room is not luxurious, nor did I need it to be. Front desk was friendly, accommodating, and attentive. Would definitely stay here again!
