We stayed at the Beach Plaza hotel for a get-away weekend in room 305. After reading the reviews, we were afraid what we were getting ourselves into. The hotel is very old and run down but our room was clean considering. The first thing we did when we got up to the room was check the bed sheets to make sure it was clean. Reading the other reviews, people have commented that there were hair and stains on their bed at check in. Ours was perfectly clean with fresh linens. The bathroom is tiny and the drains were draining slow, but there were plenty of clean towels. The room was not dusty nor did it smell moldy, and my husband and I both have bad allergies and we didn’t have any kind of reaction staying in the room. It’s definitely not the Hilton but for the price and location, you can’t beat it.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the first time over Labor Day weekend. We checked in and got to our room. Bed was clean and so was the room, but the bathroom was not. The bathroom had not been touched. There were towels still on the floor, sand in the tub, wash rags on the shower rod, and who knows what on the sink. We told the front desk and were told that there was nothing they could do until morning. I told them we were not going to wait until morning to use our bathroom and that it should have been cleaned. We literally had to CLEAN THE BATHROOM OURSELVES! She gave us cleaning supplies but no gloves or anything to protect ourselves from COVID. Did not expect to start off my vacation being told we had to clean our bathroom ourselves if we wanted it clean. We talked to management in the morning and they gave us a free night. I would stay here again if it was the only option left. Other than that, I’ll be going somewhere else.

Dirty, Hair all over the room bedsheets, towels , tub, toilet. Would not recommend and would not stay again. Came in town for a weekend get away with husband.

My wife an I took a one day trip to Ocean City to relax. The Beach Plaza was not what we expected as it pertained to the room. Due to being late we did not make a fuss but was disappointed. The porch and the view was beautiful we ate dinner and lunch there. I spoke with management and the reached out and said they will work on improving and will take my detailed suggestions into account and will meet with their team. The general manager assure me this will happen and I truly believe him. I am open to try them again.

I stayed there with my family. I should have known that I was in store for a bad time when I realized there was a left over pair of woman’s bikini bottoms on the lamp shade when I walked in. I ignored it and didn’t complain cuz it’s not what I do. Standard size rooms with two double beds. Beds are atrocious, worse than any bed I ever slept in in the military. HVAC system was constantly dripping water so carpet in room was consistently damp. MOLD!!! All over the bathroom. Any metal that wasn’t painted was covered in rust. Bottom of door falling apart and it takes a linebacker to shove it closed. Walls very thin! Had the joy of my kid waking up at 2am when the drunk 20 year olds returned and began fighting🙄. No hot water during normal shower times. That’s right. NO HOT WATER when you want to shower. Plan your showers for off hours. I’ve stayed here in the past and it wasn’t as bad but it’s now clear they do zero maintenance. Location is the best part and only good thing for this place
