“Love It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

This has been the greatest place to stay. Its been a year and a half since I've stayed here but it was a great stay. Staff was very sweet very excellent customer service. Rooms were very clean. The only thing that I didn't like is that they don't offer specials for customers that stay more than three days. I think if you stay 4 or more days you should at least get something a free breakfast, a drink, or at least a voucher for the restaurant. But its a great place to stay

Thank you for taking the time to write your review after so long. Glad to hear that the staff and rooms were more than accommodating. You will be happy to know that we will be developing some summer “packages” for multiple night stays and that last summer we started giving a $10.00 credit voucher to each reservation for each day of their stay to be used in our restaurant the 9th Street TAPHOUSE. It has been very well received and we certainly do plan on continuing that in 2013. I hope you plan on returning this year and will be able to take advantage of some of the changes. We look forward to seeing you soon.

For five years in a row, my family has celebrated Thanksgiving at the shore and have always stayed at the Paradise Plaza Inn. The're ALWAYS pleasant on the phone booking reservations, have excellent, CLEAN, FRESH rooms with exqusite views of the ocean off the main balcony, and the bay from the side balcony. The rooms are huge and well appointed, and even have drapes seperating the fromt bedroom beds for more privacy. The food in the resturant is always quick to hit the table and has been delicious every time. Portions are large yet inexpensive. The cleaning staff is also very efficient and cordial. The entire staff always makes us feel welcome and comfortable. Thanks for ANOTHER wonderful stay at your fine hotel. Ed Callan and family.

Room Tip: South-East corner suites have the most awesome views.

Thank you for spending your Holiday with us, especially for the past five years! I am thankful that you have found the hotel and staff accommodating especially since we are constantly striving to offer the friendliness staff as well as some of the cleanest rooms in Ocean City. That is not always easy to do and unfortunately we will “stumble” once in awhile. We have been fortunate as this is the second year that the 9th Street TAPHOUSE has been in operation and the comments and reviews for their food and service continue to be positive as well. Thank you for your comments but more importantly, thank YOU for your business.

Thank you for your comments as I learned something today form my head of maintenance. I was always under the assumption that all of our rooms had a curved shower rod and guess what, they do not! That will change over the winter as I told him to prioritize that as a winter project to be finished by the spring. I am sorry that was something I missed. Thrilled to hear that our rooms continue to be found clean by our guests and the staff friendly! Thanks again for your feedback.

We stayed for one night on 12/8. We arrived around 1 PM and were allowed to check in early. Staff was very friendly and efficient. The room was clean and had all the amenities we needed. We had a Ocean front room 3rd floor with perfect Ocean view overlooking the boardwalk. This would be perfect in the summertime. The bed was very comfortable. Thanks to the hotel for the two $10 vouchers to use in the bar/restaurant. We used both, one for drinks and the other for breakfast before leaving. Breakfast was very good also. There is a bus stop right out front for those that ride the buses like we do while at the Ocean. Overall, a very pleasant stay. We will look here again when we return to Ocean City.

Thank you for visiting us in the off season! It is nice when we aren’t as busy so we can accommodate our guest with early check in’s! I am also glad that you found all the amenities that you needed and that you were able to take advantage of the $10.00 credit coupons for the TAPHOUSE. Please do keep us in mind for a future stay and when you call back, be sure to ask for the Return Guest Rate! Thank you for your business.

We stayed at the Paradise Plaza the weekend after Thanksgiving. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and the location of the hotel is fantastic! We have stayed at this hotel before and we will definitely stay here again! We like the family-friendly atmosphere!

Room Tip: We stayed in a mini suite because of the size of our family. It has two balconies--both with tremen...

Thank you for returning and spending the Holiday with us! I am thrilled that you found the rooms clean and the staff friendly. That is what I try to constantly reiterate to all my staff that cleanliness and friendliness is what is going to set us apart from our competition. The location certainly helps but we really can’t take credit for that although it IS one of the best and most convenient in town! Thanks again, we look forward to your return and we wish you a safe and enjoyable Holiday Season.

Thank you for your review and kind comments. I am glad we have gained another valuable customer and you plan on seeing us again! I love the fact that you were treated appropriately and more importantly that you felt like you were royalty. That is one of our main goals along with the cleanliness of the rooms. Hope to see you before next fall!
