This was our second time staying at the hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. Only complaint that I would have was the indoor pool area could have been cleaned up. This is a place that I would stay again and recommend too friends and family.

No concern from the girl at the front... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the HoJo's Plaza. You enter on the ground floor in the back of the building by the multi-story private parking garage, and the front of the building faces the...

Very nice beach hotel that proved to be the best night of the week! Although my last day/ night of business travel, to be able to wake up and smell great coffee and watch the ocean from a comfortable balcony- even in November, it was truly the highlight of my week. Ocean City is very quiet this time of year-... More
