The lobby and the pool area are nice but that's it. The rooms are disgusting. There are stains on the walls, the air conditioner was falling apart and loud. The bath room...wow the bathroom.. the bathroom is moldy, the bath tub is stained and when you're standing in the shower you feel like you're on a boogie board. I'm not sure if there is water traped under the shower but you are woobleing back and forth the entire time you're taking a shower, not to mention the temperature was constanly changing. Needless to say I took a shower with the flip flops on. The toilet was stained as well and I'm pretty sure they don't clean or change the shower curtain. For as much as we paid we should have had a much better room., but I don't think they have any. The beds weren't much better, I can't believe I even slept in it. I should have slept in the car, I would have felt cleaner.

I highly recommand you DON'T stay here.

I read many of the reviews on this site for the Plim and went ahead and spent the week there. It was a great week! I parked my car at check-in and didn't move it until we checked out, Everything I could have wanted was within walking distance. The pool was clean and yes the cool water was a shock, but it was great. The hotel staff was great, very friendly and courteous, I just wish someone would learn how to make coffee for the lobby. As the reviews state, it was the worst in the entire City. Thankfully a Dunkin' Donuts (open 24 hrs) is a short walk north on the Boardwalk. The Carribean Bar by the pool has food and drinks, and the lovely wait staff is happy to bring them right to your lounge chair.
The room was clean. It was small, but who wants to stay in their room when you come to Ocean City? It is an old building and is being constantly upgraded.
If you want to stay in a snortzie joint and be pampered and have to tip everyone you see, you are not gonna be happy at the Plim. If you want a decent place to stay at a reasonable price, be right on the boardwalk, enjoy a great pool and the ocean, enjoy a drink served by some of the best looking waitresses in OC, stay at the Plim, you won't be disappointed

This hotel is nothing but a dump. The rooms are in horrible condition, small and dirty. I was very disgusted because they let the locals in who are very trashy sort of people, cursing loudly shouting at the band like a texas roadhouse. I was waiting for bottle throwing toward the band. The bartender let the locals do what ever they want. There is a Macaw parrot where the locals where handling it roughly under the influence, the Plim Plaza workers has no control over the locals because they continue to get out of control while people were they with there small children. They really shoud stop letting the local in. People are paying good money to bring their families there and relax not to hear cursing and yelling. Do they realize there in Maryland not Texas. Do not recommend this place for you family. Go elsewhere.

If location is the only thing you are concerned with than this is your spot. But if you are interested in anything else....stay away. Rooms are filthy, walls and floors feel like they are going to cave in at any moment, wireless interenet that you have to pay for does not work, power went out in our room more than once in our 3 night stay and took over 30 minutes each time to be restored, parking is a nightmare, and bad customer service. However, you are located right on the boardwalk and have everything you could ask for within walking distance. I would still never stay there again!

Went for the OFF SHORE BOAT RACES in June and stayed in a Beach front room and the view was AWSOME!! BEACH, POOL, BOARDWALK, great beach hotel! GREAT LOCATION on BOARDWALK close to everything. I only went to the beach did NOT go in the POOL. I did NOT try the RESTAURANT. If you like SEAFOOD go to "PHILLIPS" best food ever, (all you can eat) CRAB CAKES are THE BEST! If you like Nightlife "SECRETS" is the place to go, on the water, (bayside) Indoor/Outdoor NIGHT CLUB - TIKI BAR - PALM TREES - SAND- BANDS -DJ, great place to go so much FUN!! OCEAN CITY IS SO MUCH FUN FOR EVERYONE!!

I have been to this hotel every year since I was 19, I'm now 27. Yes the rooms are small, and i admit they aren't in the best of shape. But unless you plan to spend the whole vacation in the room you really don't even notice. My husband and I bring our 5 year old son, and the room is fine for three people, we have plenty of room to move around. As for the price, you are paying for a hotel right on the boardwalk. Its a nice little hotel that is right in the middle of all the action. Anyone that wants more than that, just has unrealistic expectations.

I've stayed at the Plim Plaza hotel several times in my life, with family and most recently, with my boyfriend. If you're looking to stay in your room and have all the comforts of home, this is definitely not the place for you, but if you are looking to spend time on the beach, seeing the sights, or in the pool, like we were, this is a great place to stay. Gorgeous pool with pool bar (and live music most every night) and hot tubs, all on an elevated deck so you don't have to deal with boardwalk noise. Location is great, right in the middle of the busy part of the boardwalk, lots of food and entertainment close by.

The only problem I have ever found with this hotel was that if there's no parking in the small lot under the pool deck, the overflow lot is a couple of blocks away, which is annoying. There's usually ample space to stop your car and unload all your luggage though. The rooms are small (we've only ever gotten the cheapest one though) but if that works for you, I'd highly recommend the Plim Plaza.
