Got a mid week deal off Travel Zoo. Two nights for$169. Can't beat that ! It is one block from the beach...and there is a large open area across the street so you don't feel cramped. The staff are great and they are very friendly and accommodating. Beautiful lobby and porch where you can relax with plenty of couches and...

This was my first Girlfriend's Weekend. There were six of us! Vickie and all the staff were fabulous...wanted everyone to feel at home, have fun, and just enjoy without a worry! They went above and beyond, from homemade cookies and chocolates in our room, a wonderful wine and appetizer welcoming, and an incredible Continental Breakfast. We are already looking forward...

We have stayed at the Ocean Plaza during the summer for several years but this was our first winter trip. The level of service during the off season is the same high quality that we receive each summer.
