My Fiance' and I have been staying at the Beach Plaza hotel for 4 years! We love it more and more each time! The rooms are always clean, the staff is friendly and efficient, and the rates are great!! We love the huge front porch! It's great for watching sunsets and sunrises! They recently renovated some of rooms and they are beautifully done!!! We've never had any major complaints about this hotel! The only issue was that the wifi signal was weak in the efficiencies. We have booked as many as 5 rooms at time and received quality service each and every time! We will continue to stay here each year when we go and will continue recommend Beach Plaza Hotel to friends and family!!

Well it was a great price but the lady we spoke with and the website said they had wifi in there condos and they lied it did not work there. I called front desk and he said it does not reach that far i have to come to the lobby?? What happen to privacy? of getting the condo, then they said we would have 2 king size beds -_- lied again. it was a great location , good service rooms a bit out dated . bathroom tiles i brought shower flip flops, but i wish they were a bit more honest before we booked because we would have look else where. <--- honest review good place but wifi is a big breaker decision when you bring electronics to work and you cant do it in private.

Room Tip: Rooms in the hotel have wifi and correct bed size

Our family had a wonderful weekend and overall experience while staying here. We were there for the O.C Cruise In 2013 and had family members in 3 different rooms. All of our rooms were clean and comfortable. I want to give a special thank you to the cleaning staff. Sam, our young lady who cleaned our room went above and beyond. Everyone we encountered were polite, friendly, and professional. We ate in the hotel restaurant, Aldofo's and had and amazing meal. Really nice covered porch in front, right on boardwalk, ample parking. We are already planning next years trip, and we will be staying at the beach Plaza Hotel again! We recommend this hotel 100%.

Room Tip: we were on 1st floor, with a side view of ocean, nice room.......room w/o a view had a canopy bed in...

Booked here for the car show weekend. My main issue was with the "contracted" parking help. The attendant harassed me in the parking lot even though it was evident there were ample spaces available. The front desk clerk initially said I could not have a parking pass until check in; even though my credit card was already charged and the room paid for in full. The room was clean yet had the old, musty smell. There was no table lamp, just the overhead. Loud trash service at 5:30 in the morning. Friends stayed in another room said their queen size bed had a huge sag in the middle decreasing their sleep. It is an older, quaint hotel needing some upgrades but liked the vintage feel. Customer service was excellent.

Although kinda late, My fiance and and I stayed here for a weekend getaway in July 2012 and we thought this was a decent place. We didn't care about the decorations and pictures on the wall. Check in was very smooth, no problem with staff at the front desk..the room although dated gave a nice vintage feel. The room itself was pretty and smelled good. Location was good since the beach was steps away and for the most part it was quiet in our room. At the side of the hotel there is an area to wash your feet off after being in the sand so that you don't bring sand into the hotel so that was a plus

A few cons...bathroom could use some updating and expansion... more makeup removers could have been given, I only received one makeup remover and no more..elevators often took a long time to come and so we had to mostly take the stairs

Overall, would we stay here again? Maybe

This hotel has many features, regular hotel rooms, efficiencies, and large apartments. We've stayed in all of them at one time or another. They also have a restaurant, lounge, piano bar, and large front porch with rockers. During our most recent visit, we stayed in one of the oceanfront efficiencies. It was late in the season and the staff were busy preparing to close for the year. But they were still friendly, and anxious to help us with our every need. We loved the room. Instead of going out to find a restaurant on the water, we'd prepared our own seafood dinner or purchased some steamed crabs and ate our meal in the room over looking the ocean. In the morning we opened the curtains and watch the sunrise from bed. If you wished, you could also sit on the balcony and watch the joggers and bikers go up and down the boardwalk. Just my wife and I, the end of the season, it was quiet, restful, and the Beach Plaza and Ocean City made it that way.

Room Tip: Go oceanfront !

I read a review ,before going to this hotel. It was not very favorable at all. I was reluctant at first. I can tell you that it was great ! The people at the desk were friendly, and helpful. The hotel is old, but has a lot of class. You get the feeling of days gone by. They have a fantastic resturant on the property as well. We fell in love with the spacious front porch, over looking the boardwalk, and the ovean. They have rocking chairs there that are very comfortable! All in all, it was one of the best experiences we've had in a long time. In fact we made a second trip there !
