We arrived late in the evening around 9 PM and check in was quick and easy. We had requested an Oceanfront room but got what they called a side view which was fine. With the slider open you could still see the water and hear the waves crash. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable except for...

Booked two nights over spring break. Very nice oceanfront room, beautiful beach, excellent staff.

Howard Johnsons Plaza Hotel in Ocean City MD is a very nice hotel. It's very clean. The staff are very friendly. The location is right in the middle of town and on the boardwalk. It's open all year round. The pool is very convenient and clean. Had a great time and will definitely return

People who work here are gracious, caring, friendly, and helpful. Everybody from check-in to clean the room had a great 'Tude.' The room was neat and clean. The ocean side view was great. We had a great experience and a relaxing four day weekend.

I decided to take a quick road trip on Easter Sunday with my daughter and nephew. It was a bit chilly but we had fun. The room was nice so we spent a good amount of time in it. We will definitely stay there again.
