Nicely maintained, super clean, motel right on one of the country's best
beaches. We stayed here several times in the mid 1970s, and the place is still family owned (different family), and has been modernized and upgraded. Rooms are large and well laid out with kitchenettes and refrigerators. A/C is modern and effective. Floors are nice tile, which is great, since being right on the beach means sand is present. Bathrooms/showers are small, but well thought out with nice fixtures.
Good sized heated salt water pool overlooks the beach.
Small hotel snack bar by pool is open during busy season. Nice beach bar about 100 yards down the beach.
Staff was friendly and eager to please. This motel is good value for the money. You can't beat the beach. White sand, wide, safe, very long for walking if you wish, clean water right on the Gulf.
There are plenty of restaurants and attractions nearby, if you can tear yourself away from the sand , sea, and sun.
We've rediscovered St Pete Beach and the Plaza Beach Hotel after 35 years of travelling all over the world. We will be coming back.
