Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 2, 2012

This hotel was way more than we expected. The view was great and the room was very nice. The best thing with the stay had to be the staff. They were very nice and made the stay exceptional.

The stay started with a friendly desk staff. The luggage carriers were very deep and roomy. The elevators were huge. Eventhough we had a luggage cart there was still plenty of room for us and other guests. the room was big and roomy. Everything was clean and fresh smelling. A lot of hotels on the boardwalk have a musty damp odor. This one did not. IT smelled fresh 24/7. it had an Itallian restaurant on the first floor that made delicious breakfasts and even better brick oven pizza. It was right next store to the Brass Balls Saloon, an Ocean City landmark. Everything you would need was within walking distance!

The room was good for the amount of money we paid. We stayed on a Sunday and Monday in late September for an ocean front room. If I had stayed in this room in Prime season for the rate posted on the door I would have been very disappointed. Continential breakfast was not in the package. I did want to keep my stay in a reasonable price.

Our stay at the Howard Johnson's Oceanfront Plaza was very nice. The room was clean, front desk service was efficient and pleasant, and our overall experience was a good one. We found the food in the hotel's bistro restaurant to be a little pretentious and over-priced, so we didn't eat there.

Great location for Kitefest. Close enough to see the kites on the beach. We didn't much care for the noisy headboard. It actually woke us up in the middle of our first night. The rooms are non smoking but balcony smoking is allowed. This means us non smokers occasionally must close our patio door to keep the smoke out of our room. The coffee pot in the room was a tiny 4 cup version. All in all, we had a marvelous weekend. Our housekeeper Rosie was very friendly and efficient.

The hotel is at a great location othe boardwalk, it has plenty of parking and you can catch the tram ride right in frount of the hotel. The hotel staff is great, infact one of the young ladies recognized me from my previous stay. They are very friendly and always willing to help. The rooms look great, the beds are well made and the bathroom is spotless. It makes me feel right at home. I tell all my friends and family this is the place they want to stay at!
