“Bug infestation”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

FIrst thing is that the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I also thought that the hotel itself was very clean. But, the property in in major need of some TLC. The paint is peeling just about everywhere! Even the furniture in my rooms were in poor shape. The elevator is very old and in fact, I got stuck in it. But, the worst thing was the bug infestation in my bathroom. The bugs even got into my toiletries. But, the staff was very helpful about finding a different room and making sure I was happy with it.

Location is good, but that's the only positive thing I can say about it! At $197 per night including the, somewhat diet, breakfast, it is terrible value for money. Useless staff complement the establishment which, in my non-expert opinion, is an electrical health hazard to say the least! Was booked for a week, but left after 3 days, even though I lost all the money! Still have some of their breakfast cards...if anyone is interested!

Room Tip: Just choose another hotel!

This place is ghetto.
Customer service provided was very bad (receptionist and management) and the hotel itself is one star, no 3 star as rated.
We had the room in the old building on the left side after the garden, and it was a pretty unpleasurable stay, in a very tiny and deary room.
We bought for US$ 63 per night - firesale - expedia - and final price, at the reception, including resort fees, was 90. The hotel was overprized per US$ 63 already.
Be aware from this place.

If you want to go to South Beach without paying the exorbitant prices, South Beach Plaza Hotel is the place for you.We spent five days and it was great. For one, you are the heart of South Beach, that means you don't have to drive anywhere;the beach,restaurants, clubs and activities are located within a few blocks. But you have to deal with the noise on the streets from a place that never sleeps. On the other hand, my room had very few amenities ; no microwave or refrigerator, just the bare minimum, an ironing board, Tv & lock box. . There is a bar inside the hotel that opens at about 6pm, with $5 drink specials, a complimentary drink for guests between 5-6pm(don't be late) and Hookah priced at $25 ready to go. One other thing that threw me for a loop is the $25 valet parking, a little expensive, but worth it, but you have to pay everytime you come back to the hotel with your car.

Just remember, in South Beach, everything is overpriced and undervalued.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the back that will block out more of the outside noise.

For the price, this place was fine for us. Walls were thin and floors were creaky, but the location was ideal, and the staff was pleasant if not overly helpful. Decor was minimal but sufficient. If you are looking for a place on South Beach and you are on a budget, you could do far worse than this.

My friends and I booked a suite that had a king bed plus a sofa bed. The kitchen was pretty large but there was absolutely nothing stocked. We had to visit the bar to beg for a knife to cut up limes! I assume people just steal everything so they don't bother to stock anything. We were out late so didn't really notice if it was too noisy but the suites are quieter rooms since they are located back off of Collins Ave. Cost-wise it was pretty outrageous until you consider it was a high-season weekend in South Beach. The location is excellent: Close to Lincoln Road, 12th Street Beach, Washington Ave clubs, etc. We didn't make the breakfast but I could hear people enjoying it in the courtyard right outside our room!

Room Tip: If you go to bed early at night you should not stay here (or anywhere else in South Beach . . . Sunn...
