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

This hotel was rated a 3 star by Trip Advisor. This hotel is definitely not a 3 star property, it's at most a 2 star. I was anxious to arrive, after reading the description of the Suite, but everything was outdated, including the Jacuzzi, which I did not even want to attempt to use. The two room suite did not...

Thank you very much for your opinion. I am sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. True, we are a 16 year old property and have areas that need to be addressed. Although we have refurbished the rooms over the years, being an independent property we do not have the luxury of spending $100K at one time every 4... More

Group of 8 men shared 4 rooms for an off season golf vacation. We spent 3 nights there found it just right for our needs. The restaurant wasn't open Sun, Mon, Tue evenings so we had to eat elsewhere.

So happy to hear that you were able to check in early. Obviously this time of year, things do slow down a bit so typically an early check in is not a problem. It is primarily May through September that the early check in's are harder to accommodate. Despite the negative reviews regarding “not being able to check in until... More
