Lovely hotel and room.

Lovely hotel and room. Friendly staff. My only gripe was the condition of the balcony, it could use a little TLC, and the air conditioners above dripped relentlessly right on the balcony.

Great rooms, great location, good overall

My partner and I chose the Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel - Ocean City Oceanfront for a two-day getaway. The rooms here are absolutely lovely. Ours had a southward facing balcony with a view of both the ocean and the bay. It was very clean and pleasant. We generally found the staff friendly and helpful. My only two complaints are that when we arrived, several hours before check-in, the staff at reception said they would call us when the room was ready. However, by 5pm (two hours after check-in) we still hadn't received a call. This wasn't too much of a problem since the hotel is perfectly located on the boardwalk and so we were able to spend our time strolling the shops and at the beach. The pool at the hotel is also a bit depressing since it's in the basement with little natural sunshine, but really who needs the pool when you have the beach at your doorsteps. Definitely would recommend staying here.

Beachfront

Pros: View from ocean front room was great - close to all food places
Location: Location was great and the restaurant at hotel was great!!
The hotel and staff were nice - the only thing I can say is I do not like having to walk around to the back of hotel at night to get to our room.

Nice hotel close to the beach

The hotel room bathroom shower was very small and water ran on the floor and made the floor very slippery.

Nice close to the beach

Been staying here for years. On the boardwalk in the middle of everything main reason. Rooms are decent but the elevators take forever to move. Front desk staff always greet you as you come and go.

very nice hotel, right there at the boardwalk

Posted 12-Aug-2015
Pros: Very near to everything!
Cons: parking lot out in front needed more parking places, however I never moved the 3 days I was there, didn't have to.
Location: had a lot of resturants to choose from and the beach was right there.
we enjoyed staying there,staff was nice, I would stay there again. Mary , the manager told me where I could get my car fixed, because my air conditioning wasn't working. Everyone was so pleasant. The rooms were so clean , quiet and cool!

Close to beach

Overall the hotel was nice. Good location, great view of the beach and ocean even though we didn't pay for an oceanfront room. Wouldn't reccomend eating at the restauraunt attached to the hotel. HORRIBLE service.
