When ever we stay at the Boca Raton Plaza.at least once a year. The entire staff are always professional, friendly and very helpful. Nimoy at reception is a wonderful person very helpful and kind. The rooms are large, modern and very clean. Very fair and reasonable rates for the accommodations. Nice swimming pool. and the restaurant has very good food and a friendly staff. reasonable prices on good food....and good home cooking.

We stay here at l east twice a year,or whenever we are in Florida. The entire staff are always professional, friendly and very helpful. Nimoy at reception is wonderful. The rooms are large, modern and very clean. They also have large closets so you can put your things away instead of having your bags always in the way. Very fair and reasonable rates for the accommodations. Many of the rooms have a wonderful balcony. The rooms don't have that typical "box" feeling because of the patios. We have stayed at many hotels throughout Florida and for southern Florida The Boca Raton Plaza is my favorite. I would definitely recommend the Plaza to anyone who is looking for a great hotel in this area.

The Boca Raton Plaza is a large motel that is old and outdated. We had issues with the security there.

The handle lock of the balcony sliding door was badly bent and destroyed from the outside and no longer locked (room 412). There was a secondary lock in the floor track and that was also bent. We spoke to the front desk about our concern for ourselves and our belongings, but after two attempts they were unable to fix it. We asked to change rooms, and there were again lock problems (room 209). The front door deadbolt was broken, and the terrace door had an adjustable spring-loaded brace bar that did not lock into place and again the main lock did not work. Plus, this terrace connected to a rooftop, so we were especially concerned. Remember, this place is a motel, with exterior doors, and open exterior stairways. Anyone can access your door, and there are two bars on site.

We would like to thank you for your stay here with us at the Boca Plaza. I would like to assure you that our hotel does not have any security issues, nor has it had any in the past. We are aware that some items need mantienance and since then have had all items replaced. I am sorry that your upgrade and room change while you were here did not fit your needs. As for rooms with connecting roof terraces it would be near impossible for anyone to climb them. Have a wonderful day.

We just returned from two nights at the Boca Raton Plaza Hotel and Suites. It took almost a half hour to check in, lobby attendant was behind a bullet proof glass. That should have been our first clue to run. The hotel room was on the fourth floor, no elevator, poorly lit, felt unsafe walking up the stairs. After lugging our suitcases down the long outdoor fire escape, we opened the door to a dirty room with rug stains, smell of mildew and stale smoke. The room was spacious, well furnished (dated) with two flat panel tv's. it would have been a great experience at $60 but not at $140 per night rate they charged. I was afraid to put my clothes on the couch, it looked so dirty. The rug had burns on it, towels were small, thin and old, the shampoo and soap microscopic (we actually went to CVS to buy more shampoo and a larger soap bar). Would NOT recommend staying there.

Thank you for your recent stay with us here at the Boca Raton Plaza Hotel & Suites. I would like to apologize for your stay being less than satisfactory. During the overnight hours when we only have one staff memeber on they do have the option to work behind secured glass for safety precautions. I'm sorry if there was some sort of confusion when you got checked in but i would like to tell you we do have three elevators. With some recent renovations done to the hotel we do hope most or all of your conerns were delt with. If your in the area in the near future we do hope you'll reconsider a second visit with us. Thank you and have a wonderful day.

I just spent an entire month at the Boca Raton Plaza Hotel & Suites and I must say that it was a wonderful experience. I've heard from friends that live in the area that it was a nice place with very fair rates but it exceeded my expectations. The staff are very polite, welcoming and professional but there is always a standout and that was Patty at reception. She had great recommendations and always offered assistance with a big smile. The rooms are modern & clean and the pool area and tiki bar are very nice. Now to the surprise treasure, the restaurant in the lobby is GREAT. The food is delicious, diverse, affordable and very fresh all in a nice sports bar type environment. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a conveniently located, great value & unpretentious environment.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building facing east with a balcony. Oh what a beautiful sunrise.

Went down for a quick 2 night stay to visit friends and have a good time. Chose this hotel due to the price, I was extremely happy with the hotel. Very nice woman at the front desk, hotel serves its purpose. It was a little dated but I'm not going to live there forever. Nice little pool area. Parking was always easy, coffee and breakfast places just a little down the street. The air conditioning and bed were very nice, the property was clean. Going to stay there again in May.

Room Tip: parking lot side and away from the pool, didn't experience anything negative but just to be safe

I recently stayed at the Boca Raton Plaza Hotel and found it to be very enjoyable. I travel to Boca Raton frequently to attend sporting events and see my son at the nearby Florida Atlantic University (FAU). For the last couple of years, we have stayed at a large chain hotel but for some reason it was booked for the weekend. Lucky for us, we found the Boca Raton Plaza ! I liked our stay so much, I reserved a room for Easter weekend...

The sports themed bar on property was excellent...we enjoyed the ambiance, the drinks and the food. You must try the potato salad and the relish tray is awesome. I had a chicken philly sub that was top-notch. The bartending staff was well trained and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. They even made an effort to ask for our first names.

I never got a chance to get a drink from the poolside tiki bar, but it seemed like a popular spot.

The rooms are nothing fancy, but are clean and comfortable. The shower had plenty of pressure and hot water. The A/C blew ice cold and the flat screen tv was easy to use (not like one of those at the big chains that always revert back to their channel)

The front desk was staffed by Phyllis and Narda who were welcoming and fun. It is always a pleasure to spend money at a place that seems to genuinely care about its guests. They have earned my future business. See you Easter weekend!

We currently have a lot of FAU families that stay here with us and even have a special college rate for them. I thank you for the compliments towards my front desk staff as we have a great helpful team here that always tries their best to make every guest feel like family. The restaurant and tiki bar are both great as well with home cooked food and specials every night. We do look forward to having you back at Easter time, thanks again. Best regards.
