Hotel was very clean pool very crowded. Parking garage was awful..and restaurant was over pticed abd sma portions

The hotel was clean, and social distancing was practiced. Staff was very friendly and accommodating when I made requests.

Overall it wasn't a bad place. When i went to check in they had actually cancelled one of the two rooms i had booked because the assumed it was an error. They took care of it right away tho. The rooms were pretty clean. Their towels were really rough. All of the staff was friendly. Ocean view was worth the extra cost.

Room was ready on time but overall everything was nice

Everything in the room was great. Staff was great. The pool had a film over it. Wasn’t even going in that

the property is excellent but if they serve breakfast that would be perfect!

The property was conveniently located, the staff was polite and helpful, and the room was super clean. The pool is indoor, which may be a plus or minus depending on your liking. The attached restaurant has a nice happy hour. The only improvement I'd note is the need for additional ice machines. The single machine was outmatched by the number of people who wanted ice.

I must say. That everyone who work at the Howard Johnson Wyndham. Thier Hearts was shining through. Always a smile. A goodmorning and must of all. Do you need anything. Gave a wonderful day. Coffee in lobby was also Great and Fresh.

Liked the side ocean view from the hotel room, the location on the boardwalk, the friendly staff- quick to respond to your needs,

2cd time at this hotel because I was amazed at the beauty and friendliness there the 1st time and now the second time. The staff is amazing and the ocean front rooms are amazing!!! I will be back soon!

Staff was super friendly and check in was fast. The room was fine, but the bathroom needs updating and the shower set up is just odd. The pool area was a little run down as well, with tiles coming up and moldy grout in the hot tub. Overall we had a good stay at hotel was and served its purpose for our stay in Ocean City.

My reservation got moved here when the place I booked though Orbitz was sold out, this place is like throwing lipstick on a pig. My room cost over $400 after taxes etc, its worth half that price.

My husband and i love going to ocean city,md. Going off season is less traffic and people. This year was our 3rd wedding anniversary and i wanted a balcony with full ocean front view. The moment we walked in the room and opened the curtains the view took my breath away. We were both so happy! Besides the view for two people it was big enough for us but the bathroom should be a little bigger. Staff was friendly. The one bad thing though i could say is on the balcony too many little bugs cause of lights and the restaurant, they were annoying. We would definitely come back again.

Hotel had professional kind staff. Can not find one bad thing to say about such great staff. The restaurant/bar was completely different story. Staff making mistakes on order 3 different staff 2 different days. Bartenders cussing in front of me angry with something. I would gladly stay in hotel again just find somewhere else to eat.

First let me say if you need customer service you better call Ashley she was the only person on site who had any professionalism and grasp the concepts of customer service. Requested 2 rooms next to each other so my sisters and I could enjoy ourselves for the weekend..guess what got two room with connecting doors but they did not connected to one another. Ordered a non-smoking room smelled of smoke called front desk was HUNG UP on. Sent up a maintenance person who told us "he did not care who we called we could call President Obama". Admitted that the smoke was coming in from next door should have warned people as my sister has asthma. Was told no-vacancy in any of the other properties...fridge not working called maintenance and guess what he did not have any fridges on site but he could take the one from another room who did not check in. My guess here is maybe customer services is only for certain people. The room faced an alley not the ocean. Called Orbitz to complain hotel now telling another story that they offered us other rooms..SMH that you are bad enough to say it but when called to the carpet you lie? I travel a great deal and have NEVER been treated this poorly. These were not cheap rooms but the service sure made it feel like it.

My husband and I woke up on the morning of our 10th wedding anniversary and decided it would be fun to go back to where we honeymooned, so we hopped online and booked a room, packed our bags and headed down to OC for a spontaneous last minute vacation. Admittedly we only chose the Howard Johnson Plaza Oceanfront because it was in our budget and on the boardwalk, so our expectations were pretty low. But when we arrived and walked through the doors we were blown away by the friendliness of the staff and cleanliness of the building. Every employee we encountered during our stay from the front desk to the cleaning staff was absolutely lovely to talk with, and despite being right on the beach there was never so much as a spot of sand on the floors. Our room was comfortable, and exceeded our expectations as it was listed as "no view" yet we could see both the beach and the bay and had the most breathtaking sunset views. If I had one complaint it would be the construction site two lots over, but the work only occured while we were out midday so it wasn't disruptive and it was only an eyesore if we decided to stare at it ;) We have only stayed on the boardwalk once with our kids, but we paid twice as much for a smelly room, grumpy employees, and sand on every surface. Since that experience we would always stay north and off the boardwalk. But going forward the HJ Plaza Oceanfront will definitely be our #1 choice for our OC family vacations (and occasional anniversary getaway!)
