Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel - Ocean City Oceanfront
Ranked #10 of 104 Hotels in Ocean City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The front desk staff was very good. Each person I dealt with was professional, mature, and warm. They really seemed to care about giving good customer service. They all spoke English very well. Actually it is their native language! Many people you deal with in OC don not have strong English skills, so that's a big deal.

Some problems with the room, which I reported. However in spite of the bathroom door that sticks and the seemingly "dead" electrical outlet I would go back on the strength of the excellent staff and the really great location - right on the beach and an easy walk to either end of the boardwalk.

Not the best view of the ocean but we were not in the room that much.
Staff was helpful and responsive to requests. Room was clean and bathroom was recently rehabbed. All appliances were in working order.
In summary, we would gladly book here again in the future.

There was a little mix up with my reservation, I booked ocean front but they had me down for Ocean View. I booked through the main 800 # for Howard Johnson hotels. Its much better to book through the hotel directly. The lady at the counter was apologetic about the mix up. Upon check out she told us that she shared the mix up with the manager and the manager "did a little something for us". Overall the room was nice, good for a 4 night stay. The elevator in the hotel was so very slow. We ate buffet breakfast at the hotel restaurant it was so-so but there are plenty of other options on the boardwalk. The hotel is in a great location - right in the middle of the boardwalk. It was great walking onto to the boardwalk and right on to the beach on the morning.

The location was perfect for our stay. We weren't Oceanfront but we were ocean view and it was still just as good. The rooms are clean.
