“Friendly, clean, place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2011

My husband and I stayed at the plaza beach resort for just one night. It was easy to see that the staff was professional. There were different activities to do such as putt putt golf, swim in pool or ocean, and the adult happy hour. They also had a very nice courtyard with a fountain and some tables and chairs.
The room was quaint with fridge, microwave, and kitchenette. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was small but clean. The only con was that the recliner chair was broke and we cold not use it. We just sat on the bed. The free wifi and free parking was great.

After an awful experience at the Bon Aire we were fortunate enough to be able to stay here. This place is customer oriented. The rooms are very nice and clean. Staff is great. We will definitely go back. When a place has signs saying please rate us on trip advisor it is comforting.

My first impression was that this was the tacky, Florida hotel sandwiched between 2 fancy highrises, but The Plaza Beach Hotel turned out to be the perfect spot for a casual stay on a beautiful section of St. Pete Beach. The exterior is decorated with painted dolphins and typical Florida scenery, but inside - the rooms were spotless, the staff was friendly, the pool was perfect. There was a nice, little community room where you could always find free coffee and they even served beer and wine during the daily social hour.
I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a comfortable, easy-going spot that is right on the beach.

We were booked at one of their other hotels on the bay. I arrived and was advised we had been upgraded to a Gulfview one bedroom suite at the Plaza Beach Hotel. Check in was a breeze upon arrival. However, the only veiw we had was the parking lot or the hotel behind us. You could not see the beach from our room. The hotel boost 2 queen size beds. This is not true. Our room had 2 full size beds and a pull out couch. Accommodations where clean. Hotel ran out of beach towels and never seemed to catch up on the second day. Some bring your own. Otherwise, for the price this was a nice clean hotel. My kids enjoyed theirselves. The beach access was wonderful. Parking was adequate. My only suggestin would be upgrading the beds.
Keep in mind you must pay $7 to $10 extra for a parking tag for additional cars per night. The first tage is free.

Room Tip: I booked on Orbitz.

We stayed for a week with two young kids. The pool was excellent -- very clean and never too crowded. The kitchen facilities were very workable. The location couldn't have been better - right on a beautiful section of the beach. Only negative comment I could make is that the mattresses were uncomfortable. However, the room was very clean and quite adequate otherwise. We had a couple small issues when we first checked in, but they were resolved quickly. It's obvious the owners and staff take pride in their work. We would definitely stay again.

My family just returned from our annual vacation in St Petersburg Beach, Florida. We have been vacationing there since 1989 and have always stayed at The Plaza Beach Hotel. The owner, his family and his entire staff are extremely attentive and treat each and every customer with respect. Through the years we have made friends with other guests and now coordinate our vacations with these families each and every year. As you can see from my ratings, The Plaza Beach Hotel is clean, location is phenomonal - you literally walk off patio/pool onto the beach, the service is impecable and the value keeps you returning year after year. Our family, along with many of the other guests this year already have our 2012 reservations booked - You MUST check out this wonderful Hotel - trust me!!!!!!

Room Tip: All staff most accomodating!!!!!!
