My family and I (4 of us in total) stayed in room 317 which had a bedroom, a living area, small kitchen area, bathroom and two balconies. The balconies were awesome, one getting sun in the morning and the other in the afternoon. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. The location could not have been better,... More

First I would like to give the Paradise an excellent review and this is at least the 20th time staying there and no I do not own the place nor do I have any ties to them Sleeping in your car is not...

My family and I stayed at Paradise Plaza last weekend, we had a ball. The hotel was awesome, great location and clean. The only problem was that the pull out sofa needed to be updated, felt like I was sleeping on the ground. My husband asked for another pad to go over it, but they never brought one up. Other... More

Location Isn’t Everything… As a reasonable person, I’m unable to comprehend why anyone would give the Paradise Plaza Inn an “excellent” or “very good rating,” unless of course it was his or her very first overnight hotel experience (without the benefit of comparison), or perhaps they owned the place. Thankfully, neither option describes me (or my family). Yes, the Paradise... More

First of all, I would like to address the staff. The girls at the front desk of 4th of July weekend were amazing and should be commended for their excellent customer service!!!!! We had been promised a certain time to check in and when the previous occupants did not check out on time it moved that back, But we were... More

After staying at our share of duds over the years I think our family has finally hit it lucky. The staff is extremely accomodating. This hotel is very clean. Pool is very nice. The restaurant that is in the hotel is also very good and the 10.00 food voucher you get is an added plus!The location of this hotel is... More

We arrive,,, first impression was not so bad. Parking is a bit tough and even trying to unload your vehicle is a challenge since there really is no place to unload. They do have an overflow lot about 50 yards away and we did feel safe in this area .The entrance/lobby area is a very small space. Elevators are slow... More

Thank you for your review. I must admit you were very honest and fair. You are right, the hotel is not the newest, 16 years old, and we do try to address a lot of our “updating” projects in the off season. We did paint all of our guest rooms but the exterior was not addressed this past winter. There... More

We went to OC for a tenth anniversary and arrived here on a Sunday evening along with the last of the "high school weekers." We were given a seventh floor boardwalk front room, as requested, with champagne on ice with glasses and a rose! An excellent start! The hotel was full I believe. One group on our floor were high...

Thank you for letting us know about your recent stay. It is quite lengthy and would take quite a bit of space to answer each of your concern, although I do think you deserve a response. I will try to address the “hi lights”. It does sound like we got off to a good start. As you mentioned and experienced,... More

Overall great location away from the crowds just enough to be comfortable and rooms are at reasonable rate. Parking for the hotel not bad as they have an overflow lot within 1 block. On the rough side, the elevators are horribly slow and small. Getting one during peak time took up to 5 minutes sometimes due to being overcrowded. Our... More

It sounds like you were here one of the two weeks of Senior Week (high school graduates). I am sorry about that as it one/two weeks out of the year the town (and hotels) can get a bit crazy as you indicated, with noise and kids sometimes jumping from one balcony to the next. We do try and have our... More

One of the most ideal and premium located hotels in Ocean City. Sitting on the Boardwalk with a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean. Souvenirs, shops, burgers, ice cream and candy, all located on property! Grab the boardwalk tram or the city bus located on both sides of the hotel. An outdoor swimming pool, an in house restaurant and a customer friendly staff. Park your car and experience the entire beach resort by foot. It can't get any more convenient.
