Went for a birthday celebration over the weekend of Feb. 20th, 2015. We rented the Dolphin Suite. The size of the room was perfect for the three of us girls. The room was clean but, should REALLY be refurbished. The staff was nice and helpful. Unfortunately, the restaurant/bar attached to the hotel was closed, which was one of the reasons... More

We had a misunderstanding about the number of rooms I needed and ended up with the wrong email so I never received a confirmation. When I called to confirm, they were so kind and understanding and upgraded us to ocean view. It was located right on the boardwalk and the view of the ocean was priceless. I went in the... More

The weather sucked (valentines weekend 2015) and it was the 1st weekend that the hotel was open since the end of season. There were a few minor issues when we checked in. The lights on the balcony were off and the jacuzzi did not work. The issues were addressed literally within 10 mins everything was working! The timer for the... More

Mother nature has a way of trying to mess up a long weekend. We got slammed with ridiculously cold weather and winds gusting at 60+ MPH. It got so cold that the automatic door had to be operated manually. Balcony furniture blew off and onto the boardwalk. You could even feel a cold draft in the elevator. The water in... More

my wife and i have been going to ocean city for over 30 years and we've stayed and various hotels. while nice they come up short compared to paradise plaza. the staff at paradise has always been friendly and helpful, the proximity to everything is second to none and even the in season rates are some of the best you'll...

My husband and I stayed here for the week when we got married. We stayed in the honeymoon suite. Everything was great. From the customer service to the view from our bedroom balcony. We stayed here a second time for our sons birthday. The staff sang happy birthday to him and gave him a bouquet of birthday balloons. The staff... More

We stayed at this hotel over the holidays; reserving a 2 BR Dolphin Suite. I'd like to clarify that their interpretation of a 2 BR suite & mine are different. I thought the suite would have 2 separate bedrooms with an area in the middle to congregate -- this is what we've had at other resorts. But, actually what you... More

Only good feature is location. Definitely NOT a 3 star hotel!!! Needs repairs and renovations. Room not clean, hairs found on floor and pillow. The refrigerator and heating system were so noisy you could not sleep through the night. Would not recommend to a friend.

We stayed over Thanksgiving and it was very quiet at the hotel but we enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a 2-queen ocean front room which was quite large with the two beds, a pull out sofa, and small table with 2 chairs. The room was definitely dated but the tile floor must make it much easier to keep clean... More

Thank you for your review. As I just replied in a previous response, our sofa beds are being replaced and should be completed in February at the latest. You are right regarding the tile floors, they are much easier to keep clean, overall and especially in the summer months when the sand is so prevalent. I will double check on... More

I have been vacationing in Ocean City for 40+ years as a child with the family and now as an adult. I have stayed in a number of locations - some of which no longer exist. Ocean City is very quiet from late fall to mid spring. Factors like noise and traffic may affect your stay based on the season...... More

Thank you for your review. I am pleased that overall, you had a fairly pleasant stay. You will be happy to know that we are currently in the process of replacing the love seat/sofa beds. Those should be done by February. As I have mentioned in previous responses, we don’t have the luxury to replace everything at one time so... More
