Hotel lobby is small and elevator not in the best shape. I just stayed one night cause it was a last min. Decision not to drive back home which is 6 hours from the beach. At the time, it was the cheapest hotel I could find for one night at the last min. Hotel staff was very friendly but my...

Disgusting, old, stinks, and the people at the desk were very rude. Booked this hotel online where it told me it was non-smoking. The whole hotel is smoking. I'm highly allergic to smoke, told the lady at the front desk there was no way my husband and I could stay there. She said she couldn't do anything, we'd have to...

Unless this is the ONLY thing you can afford, don't go to this place. We put this place firmly on our "never come again" list. It is nasty. The elevator reeked of either cigarettes or weed for the entire stay. One of the canister lights was hanging out of the pool wire and all. One of the hot tubs was...

We came in late during our stay but the person at the front desk allowed us to keep our rooms and stay in for an extra hour after the checkout time because we really needed the sleep. The rooms were surprisingly clean despite the aged look of the building outside.

Paint is peeling in the rooms, the ceilings are stained from water leaks and the door locks are sketchy at best. The bed was hard to sleep on. The girl who checked us in was nice, but very over worked. It took 1 1/2 hours for a maintenance person to come get our AC working. It is right on the...

Fighting and screaming all night. The side room ocean view is a outdoor walkway. No room for a chair and even if there were, you would likely get robbed. The room was NOT as described and the indoor pool is NOT the same one that is in the picture. We were so uncomfortable in the small no privacy side room...

Ocean Plaza is in a great location, right on the beach. The problem is not on the outside, it is on the inside. It could use a major overhaul and actually be a gem but it is far from that. We were early and told the room would be ready in 15 minutes so they allowed us to sit by...

Chose this motel after checking out of another area condo. Unbelievably rude clerk. Room not ready so informed I need to keep calling back until it is ready. Finally get into room. Refrigerator does not cool, shower broken and body fluid stains on daughters bed. Asked for new linens at 5, 8:30, 10 and finally 10:30. Each time told housekeeping...

If you are 21 and younger and want to drink and be loud all night this is the place for you! It's cheap for even oceanfront and there is ZERO supervision on site after the office closes. They put a sign up to go to the hotel next door for any issues. PROS: It's dirt cheap. Indoor pool. Outdoor pool....

My fiance and I booked Ocean Plaza in January seeing it had the cheapest ocean front rates. We have actually stayed here about 3 years ago when we took our first beach trip together. It was okay, just a little too busy and littered with teenagers/college students on the weekends. We've stayed at the Polynesian too (both the Ocean Plaza...
