Great hotel, very clean, affordable and very polite staff. Amenities were awesome. Only down side, if you want to have a guest visit, it was $25 to park a second vehicle, I thought that was a little step.

We loved the Plaza Beach hotel and the customer service couldn't be better. I can't single anyone out by name because everyone we spoke with was wonderful. We had a small issue with water pressure and it was repaired immediately. The location couldn't be better, right on the beach with lots of restaurants and stores in easy walking distance. We stayed 3 days and wished we could stay longer. Clean, cozy and comfortable kitchenette with a sofa and coffee table, 2 double beds, a kitchen table and chairs and an ocean view. My only complaint would be the wifi which was absolutely terrible. However, we weren't there for business so it wasn't a big deal. Cabanas on the beach for the guests. Plenty of lounge chairs around the pool, games and other fun stuff and lovely landscaping.

Room Tip: I'd say definitely get a room on the 2nd floor because ground floor rooms just look out on the p...

Green Features: Very, very environmentally conscious. They have the notices about the linens that everyplace has now but also the shampoos and soaps are in dispensers to avoid throwing away all those little single use bottles.

We arrived a little early for check in expecting to hang out for a bit til the room was ready. But the room was ready early as well. :) Check in was simple and quick. As many reviews have eluded to this place in impeccably clean inside and out. This was our first time staying here and we were very impressed. The air conditioning stopped working late Saturday and we were amazed when two employees (family members) showed up within 10 minutes of our call. They were both dressed for dinner as it was 9pm when the air stopped working. They came in and within 10 minutes had replaced the entire unit and we were in cold air heaven again. The beach is absolutely gorgeous in this area of St Pete Beach. The sand is like talcum powder, the water is sparkling emerald greens and blues. What an awesome time we had here. Certain to go back.

Green Features: They have plenty of recycle bins on site and stress living green.

We are all here to make your stay comfortable and will respond immediately to any issues you have, day or night. My wife and I are delighted we were able to get the cold air back into your room.

Recently stayed four night at Plaza Beach Hotel. This is a great hotel on the beach that offers convenience, great rooms with full kitchens, fabulous pool at reasonable (on beach prices). They also offer free hats as a nice touch on check-out and free parking. We will stay here in the future. I would have rated 5 stars if I could have accessed the Travel Channel (Ch. 54).

If you prefer smaller, family-owned, cozy and clean hotels...you have found the right one! Although the rooms are a little smaller due to the age of the hotel and the beds are in the process of being upgraded, this hotel is truly a treasure find in a great location and at a great value! The customer service at the front desk is very helpful and the owner of the resort promptly replied to my email and is very passionate about his resort and his customers. The beach area is absolutely beautiful and you couldn't ask for more at St Petes. Each room has a kitchenette and is kept exceptionally clean. We were very impressed with the cleanliness and quality of how they maintain the rooms. There are lots of added amenities such as shampoo/conditioner dispensers in the showers and beach toys for the children to use. They even give you a nice departure gift! The only thing missing is a little cafe or restaurant, but since the hotel is in such a central location, everything is within walking distance anyway. We will definitely be returning soon!

This is our 4th year staying at the plaza beach resort. Everyone is so friendly that you feel like you are family. We had friends from Chicago meet us there and stay a week, They are definitely going back next yr as we will. We loved all the upgrades, especially the safes in the room. Although you really dont need to worry about anyone taking your things. Luanne the manager is a sweatheart and will do whatever she can for you as will the other managers. Lina our housekeeper was wonderful. The room was always spotless. See you next year
