My wife and I had a pleasant stay here at the Plaza Inn. Breakfast was great, rooms where nice and of course the staff polite and friendly, one individual was superb, very friendly , husky gentlemen w/ glasses didn't catch his name but good job. Great work Plaza Inn will be returning in the near future.

The wifi only worked 10% of the time, and when we called to ask about when it would be fixed they never gave a straight answer. The rooms were never clean to begin with. The carpet made our feet dirty. They didn't clean our rooms. Out of date technology. The staff was unhelpful. Breakfast buffet wasn't even breakfast worthy. Unsafe... More

Plaza Inn was an adequate hotel to stay in. The room was clean and functioning, except that the shower didn't work. The lobby was nice, though it is clearly not a smoke-free environment. The breakfast was sufficient, though for some odd reason there were no packets of jelly for the toast. Otherwise, there was a good variety of food. The... More

We were taking a mini vacation before the start of school with other family and when making the reservation asked that the 3 rooms be together. We were all seperated by at least 3-4 rooms in between. The 2nd floor hall smelled of pet urine and was filthy. The room we had had mold on the wall next the AC,... More

I was surprised to see how small the room and the restroom were. However it was very clean. The tolite is small and old, ran all night. The bath room has no suction vent but AC vent yes. The good thing is it is a separate room from the sink. The tv was modern, but no phone charge plugs or... More

I made my reservation using a website and accidentally selected a smoking room. When I called the hotel to tell them I didn't want a smoking room they made the change with no problem. The staff was very helpful and very nice. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was really good. Totally worth the money.

I booked this room because I found an excellent price online. We found the hotel to be a bit outdated but comfortable. Parking is free (the front desk attendant recommended not parking towards the back of the hotel "just in case." ~~ fortunately, we didn't encounter any problems with the parking or our vehicle.) Breakfast was good with plenty of... More

When we arrived for our conference, the front desk told us our reservation had been cancelled through Expedia, even though I held a confirmation through another booking agent! Took them almost an hour but they got a room for us and then told me we couldn't use our state tax exemption because was booked through third party! Not sure how... More
