“Relaxing Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This hotel is located on Daytona Beach, 3 blocks from Ocean Walk Village. It is historic but beautifully renovated on the inside. We arrived earlier than 4pm check out time on a Wednesday prior to guests arriving for the busy Coke Zero Race (we weren't there for that). We got checked in and the desk did all they could to get us a room asap, said we could go ahead and enjoy the amenties of the resort. One downfall is that they said they would call us, and 45 minutes later we had to go ask if it was ready. So while we waited, the valets Charlie and Lamar, unloaded our vehicle and securely stored our luggage and parked our vehicle. The valet service is included in the resort fee, so we utilized it on every opportunity, with added tips of course. When the room became available, the valet brought our luggage up to the room and unloaded it for us. Our room had a convenient mini frig and microwave. We had a balcony, but the ocean view room was of the parking garage and ocean. During the wait, my husband had enjoyed a drink from the pool bar (over priced) and we with our 6 year old son viewed the beautiful pool and beach area. We were also given 2 complimentary cocktail vouchers for our stay. The first night we walked to Ocean Walk for dinner after a manager suggested Bubba Gumps, which we regret. There are places to eat and things to do, so unless you just want to leave the premises for those things, you really don't have to. On site, there is a spa, a small market/gift shop with drinks and snacks, a pool bar, a lounge restaurant and the Magnolia Restaurant, where we ate their breakfast buffet the next morning; it was very good. The best part of our experience is that I was able to lounge by the pool, while my son played in the pool, and at the same time took in the beautiful view and breeze of the ocean and there was private access to the beach (which is at the non-busy end). So at dusk, we walked down to the beach and let our son play in the ocean while taking in the sun going down and the Ocean Walk and ferris wheel lit up at night. It was a much needed wonderfully, relaxing 2-day getaway for us. So after years of trying to get my husband to go to Daytona (only a 2-hour drive), we are ready to plan another trip back and says he will only stay at the Plaza Resort again.

Room Tip: We had an Ocean "View" room. Our balcony was looking at the parking garage but we also ha...

Beach was really nice and clean...hotel was just ok....pool area was nice and beach front access was great...it's older and needs a remodel. But overall it was clean and a good location...if I were to go back to daytona i would stay at one of the hotels located on the boardwalk. They were newer...more amenities and better location.
Overall we had a fantastic time!

My room was not ready upon my arrival at 4pm. They said they would call me. An hour and a half later I had to speak to a manager to get my room. Elevators were extremely slow. My ocean view ended up being partial ocean and a great view of an abandoned hotel being torn down next door. Room service did not respect my do not disturb sign, they went in and cleaned anyway. Toilet leaked all night. Checked out a day early and took it as a loss as I bought a getaway on living social. Valet was a horrible, they said it would take 30 minutes to get my car. I asked for my key and got it myself. Worst experience ever!!!!

The hotel is on a section of the beach where cars can't drive through which is great with kids and if you want to dive there is a nearby entrance to the beach where you can drive or park. It was also near enough to walk down to the pear. We had a great time, no issues and the room was very nice.

What an excellent experience we had that the Ocean Waters Spa at the Plaza Resort. The staff was very accommodating and made us feel very special...Pam and Claudine rocked our massages and Lisa S, the receptionist made sure all our details were taken care of once we arrived. I would highly suggest this spa to everyone!!

Good- clean rooms and wonderful outdoor game area. Bed was comfortable. walking distance to eateries.
Bad- Rooms are aging and show signs of water damage. Pigeons were on the balconies and would not stay gone.
Ugly- Rude front desk associates and demolition to the hotel next door.
