The location of the hotel is perfect. We didn't need to use our car the entire vacation. We stayed June 26-30, 2015 in a room with 2 queen beds and a pull-out sofa. The room wasn't the same spacious layout as the pictures on the website, which was to our disadvantage because we planned to keep our 3-yr-old son on... More

Quick overnight winter trip to the beach with my hubby for the 3rd year in a row. Stayed each time with Paradise Plaza Inn. Very few hotels open down close to the inlet but this one is & we love it! Rooms a reasonably priced. Everything is clean & hotel staff are friendly. Definitely working with a skeleton crew, but... More

I stay at Paradise Plaza Inn every year. The rooms are nice, spacious, and clean. If issues arise, management handles them pretty quickly. I love the fact this hotel is right on the boardwalk. The only con is the parking. People are only supposed to get one spot, but I don't think that's strictly enforced and end up having to... More

Paradise Plaza is a nice place to stay during the off season. The rates are very reasonable. The rooms are nice and clean. They have flat screen TVs, frig, microwave, and coffee maker with individual coffee packets. The staff is very helpful. When we checked in we were to receive free vouchers which they did not have. After some research... More

We came for the OC Waterman and Craftshow. It was 53 degrees and we had a beautiful view of the ocean and boardwalk from our room on the third floor.

Found this hotel when I decided to get away during the a three day weekend and the price was right. I arrived 3 hours early while it was snowing rather heavily. Since I had paid for ocean front, I told the person at the desk that I could come back if the room was not ready. It was not a... More
