Ideally located for Miami beach. Hotel is fairly basic and in need of some tender loving care. Positives location and complimentary wine hour (when bar staff turn up!) Negatives include the safe having only 4 numbers that work. Breakfast is a real poor experience a bit like being in a rugby scrum. Produce at breakfast would survive a nuclear explosion... More

I always recommend this hotel to friends. It's a block away from the beach and a block away from shopping on opposite directions. A evening glass of wine is offered to the guest after a day at the beach is so appreciate. The rooms are decorated like a scene from a European Villa and the courtyard is filled with people... More

this was a great find, with everything withing walking distance, food, shopping, the beach, and entertainment. The staff is also very friendly, Ronda at the front desk, hello and thanks. i would highly recommend this hotel if you want to vacation in the middle of everything and not have to travel back and forth.

The South Beach Plaza is a charming hotel. It has the old style (Miami Beach style) and located on the main avenue. The staff is helpful and welcoming. The room is quite big (considering most modern hotels). It is really confortable considering the price and location! The walls are a little bit thin and you can hear some noises on... More

They charged for "service packages" not used 'cause it is "always included". Fact is that they only explained it when checking out. The way they treated us at the front desk is unacceptable. Room was okay. Very old furniture but clean. No need to say we dont recommend any stay at this hotel.

This hotel has great location! Only 1 block from the beach. Awesome! We booked a double room but ended up with a spacious appartment that had a kitchen and was really clean. The breakfast in the morning was nice. There were rolls, muffins, cereal, yoghurt, fruit etc. Since it's South Beach you have to pay for the public car park... More

Hospitality and service was great. Room was kept clean daily, good air conditioned.Breakfast was average but good to fill you up in the... More

My friends and I went to Miami for a random weekend and chose to stay at the Beach Plaza hotel for two reasons. One it was cheap ($400 for 5 days) and two because we stayed during spring break. When we came down for spring break it was awesome: beautiful and updated room, great staff, and great location. This time... More

Started okay, but several things pulled the rating down. Hardly any electric plugs in the room. Parking cost 30 USD a night, and breakfast didn't start until 08:00, that alone cost us an extra 30 USD, as we were up at 07:00. You also needed a special key to use the toilets in reception, and the keys in the hotel... More
