Plim Plaza Hotel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff was friendly, but the hotel itself is old and badly needs refurbishing. The rooms are very small. The whole place had the smell of a hotel for smokers that had only recently gone smoke free. The outside area around the pool was designated for smokers and every morning there were clusters of smokers. On the positive side, it was on the boardwalk and had a large front porch with lots of seating. The pool was large and long and if one wanted to swim laps it would be a great place for that. The pool furniture was old and should be trashed. There was a smoking area around the pool, but people smoked where they pleased.

The hotel room was much smaller than expected didn't really have a view smelled a little funny nothing like what was advertised in the photos. older hotel next to the boardwalk location was nice but wouldn't recommend for a family. more of a place to lay your head if it's just One or two individual staying. What you're paying for is really the location but if you really want to enjoy the time at the hotel not enough space the porch was nice friendly guests but overall disappointed. The hallways were Narrow and the bathroom is small

Close to the boardwalk and beach, nice pool and bar, secluded deck with trees.

got into the room the Air Conditioner didnt work right, was blowing cool air not cold air no matter how cold we had it set it was warm air coming out after about an hr. the bathtub had gritty sand in it when u stood in there for a shower u could feel the sand ( and it was not from us because we weren't on the beach yet... and we had sneakers on ) the bed was so old or something it felt like the springs were poking out in spots. and the rooms were very small for 2 adults and 2 children. it was my daughters 1st time at a beach/ocean so the best part of this trip was we weren't in the hotel much.

Perfect location but this hotel needs many upgrades. We must have had the smallest room...there was not even anywhere to store our bags...we had to pile them on top of each other behind the bathroom door. The floors were filthy...sand all on the bathroom floor. The day we were checking out...we noticed some doors that housekeeping was cleaning and noticed that these rooms were much more spacioua...one even had an air mattress in the floor...WAY MORE ROOM THEN OURS. Had I known own that on night 1 I would have asked for another room

After they got the hot water fixed I do recommend this room they have free ice cream 24/7 for the kids live music every night really nice clean pool and a beautiful deck and Bar and the staff constantly cleaning

Yes. The rooms are small. However, the location makes up for it. As far as the staff goes, the majority of them are very polite -- with the exception of one that works the late night shift. She treated us as if it was a chore that we were on vacation. Overall our stay was decent. Its right on the boardwalk and very close to everything. Don't stay here expecting a 5 star experience. Stay here if you don't plan on being in the room much (which is what our situation was).

The service was good. The location was perfect. The room cleanliness was so so. But the shower temperature fluctuated second-by-second from freezing cold to extremely dangerously scalding hot. I have stayed at this hotel several times over the years. It is a hotel that I typically look at first prior to looking at other accommodations, but the water temperature situation was so bad that I'm shocked they haven't experienced a lawsuit. Unfortunately, I'm likely to have second thoughts if staying here in the future and there is no way that I would stay there if I had a child for fear of injury.

When you read reveiws that the rooms are small, you think ok a little smaller than normal..not here they are like shoebox size. The pool is large but the fact they have a bar and open to the public, it is always packed, not a good family enviroment.

great vacation! Decent room. Fantastic pool and tiki bar and awesome location on the boardwalk!

The location was great and the pool and Carribean pool bar and bands and music was perfect. Felt like an island vacation

The hotel is not bad for the money. Honestly I can't believe how expensive Ocean City is to begin with, but it's a reality. The hotel's location is great, right on the boardwalk and close to everything. Parking is easy, the staff is friendly. The pool is really the best part, I'd be willing to bet this is the best pool in town for the price. That being said the rooms are rough. It smelled and the best we really worn out. The bathroom was updated.

I booked the room last minute while sitting on the beach was very convieant for me and my family. Great location Friendly/helpful staff.

The hotel was great!! Rooms are small, but made no difference because we were having so much fun outside of the room that it didn't matter at all. The ocean is in the front and a pool, 3 hot tubs and a tiki bar in the back, what else could you ask for? I would definitely stay there again!!

My daughter and I just wanted to get away for a few days to Ocean City. We picked the Plim Plaza for the great location to the boardwalk and great eats! Plus we didn't have to walk far to enjoy the beach!

Loved the location. Lots of good stuff just steps away.... no need to move the car. It's an older hotel, with small rooms, but everything worked in our room.. fridge, hairdryer, lights, tv... We had a pool side room on the 3rd floor which was only one floor down to the pool and liked that. They have live music, food and drinks served in your lounge chair by wait staff... what more do you want? If you want top shelf linens and lots of room stay in a modern hotel and pay the price. It wouldn't be for everyone, but we had a great time and would return. Also loved sitting on the porch rockers in the morning. Met some other nice guests staying there too at the pool.

Good stay good location will be back to ocean city

3 night trip with daughter and her friend to celebrate graduating high school. Rooms are clean but small. Price was right cheapest could find Pool bar is great and festive. Location is perfect where all the action is. Fit our needs. May try staying on bayside next time but definitely heading back for another visit to ocean city.

I absolutely loved the location of this hotel, and the pool was a huge bonus. The pool and hot tubs were very enjoyable. It was nice that the Caribbean bar was right at the pool so you did not have to go far for a drink or food- and during the day, waitresses will come to you to take your order. Plenty of soda and vending machines in the hall, overall a nice place to stay. I would definitely go back again.

We really enjoyed our stay and the staff was really nice
