I stayed in 2 of the 3 bedroom apartments with family and we all can't wait to return next July. Perfect location by the boardwalk and parking is convenient. Housekeeping was provided every day and the girls were very nice. The only thing is that there is only 1 tv in the living room and everyone liked to wind down...

The rooms are nice and clean . We love sitting on the porch in the evening after a walk on the boardwalk. Its nice to relax on the porch sitting in the rocking chairs and feel the breeze coming from the ocean..

Bed was very comfortable and room was clean but bathroom was very dated. Floor was sloped and the lock to the room being very unsecured was a big concern when leaving valuables. Location was good just needs a face lift and a few kinks worked out.

I'm sorry you did not have a more positive experience with our customer service, typically it is one of our strengths. Our room attendants work from 9am-3pm so Karla would not be here in the evenings, but there is no reason that you could not be provided with additional towels after check in. Again I apologize for any miscommunication that...

We enjoyed our stay due to its great location. We were just steps away from the boardwalk and the beach! Staff was pleasant and helpful. The hotel is old and our room was a bit small but it did the trick. I would probably book again, but maybe one of the apartments next time.

My sister and I stayed at Beach Plaza from July 31- Aug 3rd. We have been staying here for the past 5 years or so. We like the location, the front porch, and the affordability for those who don't want to pay $300 a night elsewhere. The room was ready when we arrived, everything was clean in the roomand the...

What a super cute art deco hotel right on the beach and boardwalk! Close enough to attractions yet far enough away to get some rest! Not really kid friendly as not every room has a fridge or microwave making it difficult to make small meals and snacks. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The linens were excellent!!

This hotel has great service. When ever we needed something they immediately responded, the staff was friendly. The only negative thing I have to say about the hotel is that the bathroom did not have handicap bars in the shower. I have a disability and I was with two senior citizens who could've used at least one handicap bar in...

“We love the oceanfront rooms we also love the back corner room because on the 3rd floor you can have a view of the ocean and of the sunset on the bay.every day while we're there we get up early go for a bike ride or a walk on the boardwalk and then lay out on the beach the rest of the day! In the evening we go to one of the many numerous restaurants within walking distance and enjoy a great dinner and end the day by sitting on the porch with a glass of wine people watching chatting with our friends and laughing best vacation ever!”
