Pros - the staff was friendly and got the clogged drain taken care of once reported. The bed was comfortable, the A\C worked, the water was hot, the TV worked, nice to sleep w/ the sound of the ocean coming thru the sliding glass door. Fridge was cold, Microwave heated fine. Cons - the tub drain was draining very slow... More

Thank you for taking time to share your experience with others. I am glad that there were some features that you found acceptable and even enjoyable. Unfortunately some things, like a slow running drain are not realized until it is brought to our attention, since when cleaning a tub we only run a small amount of water. Not enough to... More

Booked this based on the reviews and the excellent price. I was not disappointed. We had a few minor issues on check in but they were quickly resolved. Hotel was clean, beds were comfortable and the staff was very helpful. The pool was small but the kids enjoyed it. You can't beat the location. We had a room in the... More

For a boardwalk hotel at a reasonable price you can not go wrong staying here. Staff is friendly. Rooms are clean. Beds are comfy. We stay here every time we come to sunfest and are not disappointed. This year no smoking was allowed in the room or on the balcony. I understand the room but can't see where it should... More

Thank you for pointing out and reiterating three of my four main objectives that I am constantly encouraging my employees as these are the qualities that set us apart from our competitors; outstanding price value, friendly staff and clean rooms. I know that not being able to smoke on balconies can be a sore subject with many. As you and... More

I was a little worried about this hotel because some of the review were not that great. However, when I arrived with my kids, we had no problems checking in. We ended up with a room on the 7th floor. I had a partial ocean view, just as I booked, and the view was great. The room was clean, spacious,... More

I am glad that we overcame some of the negative reviews that you read. I understand your disappointment with the parking. Although we have ample space for all of our guests, if you were here during a sold out period; the peak of summer or a typical off season weekend, additional parking permits are limited. Although there were open spaces... More

Best hotel we've stayed at in a long time. Our room had everything we could ask for & more! We especially liked the free bottles of water & the robes. For the great price that we got I wasn't expecting all of the amenities such as a microwave, refrigerator, iron & ironing board so those were a nice surprise. Bathroom... More

Thank you for giving the Paradise Plaza Inn the opportunity to accommodate you during your recent visit while experimenting with various hotels in Ocean City.

Paradise plaza is at a great location on the boardwalk! We stayed the second week in September and had great weather. The hotel room we stayed in was very nice, and pretty clean. There were a couple stains on the couch, so we put a blanket over it before we sat on it, but that would be my only complain... More

Thank you for your review. I am glad you found the location ideal as well as the room and the service. I’m sorry about the stains on the couch. We replaced pretty much all of our sofas before last summer except for a few. I am happy to say that the remaining sofas that were missed have been ordered and... More
