“A great value for a getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

For the price we would pay for the lowest-end room in one of the luxury hotels along the Gulf, we got the best room at the Plaza Beach Resort. The room was spotless, had all the little extras to make us feel comfortable, and had a nice private balcony looking out on the beach.

We were in FL for a wedding and wanted to stay near the beach at least one night. We enjoyed our one night and wish we could have stayed longer. (The only thing missing was coffee in the morning.) There will probably be a future visit to this hotel again.

We have stayed here for the last 5 to 6 years and have usually enjoyed our stay. This time however the noise was exceptionally loud. At first we thought it was the upstairs guests in their room but then realized it was just people walking on the upstairs walkway to their rooms. It sounded as though they were coming through the ceiling. This kept us from being able to get to sleep until almost midnight. Better sound insulation is def needed! Also, the room keys are reusable plastic keys that become very brittle over time. We accidentally snapped ours and were required to pay $10 for another key. Some of the keys are old and brittle so of course they are going to break! Ridiculous seeing as we were already paying $550.00 for just 2 nights! Funny since the average price is supposed to be no higher than 210.00 Location is great but we will probably move on. That price was just way too high for what you get.

Rebecca,

I deeply apologize that as a repeat guest your stay was not as enjoyable as prior years. I am sorry that the guest above you was exceptionally loud, some guest are more considerate then other, I apologize again. As for our keys, we do charge a $10 lost key fee, however yours was not lost and that should not have been charged to you. We do realize that keys do break from time to time and our front desk should not have charged you for it. I have noted your account and you now have a $10.00 credit for your next stay for that erroneous charge. I encourage you to give us another try for your next stay in St Pete Beach and allow us a chance to earn your continued patronage. I would like to offer you a free upgrade on your next stay for the inconveniences you occurred on this stay. I have noted your account and please call the hotel directly to make your next reservations so we can apply the upgrade for you.

Thank you again for your review and I look forward to you next stay.

We have stayed at Plaza Beach Hotel on several occasions. It is located directly on the beach and is fairly close to lots of good shopping if one chooses to do so. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a Happy Hour every evening and you are almost certain to meet a new friend.We also found the pool area to be clean and tidy. However, we did find the Air Conditioning Unit to be noisy and that the cutlery in the room needs to be updated.
We do not hesitate recommending this hotel when the opportunity presents itself and we will be returning.

We have stayed at Plaza Beach Hotel 3 or 4 times. We love it. It is directly on the beach, clean, friendly, and the family-like community is always there. We also like that we can cook in the room to save money by not going out to eat for every meal. Our usual is: we bring up a cooler full of food and then we can go shopping for anything else we need. We cook breakfast and lunch at the hotel and then go out for dinner. The restaurants around the hotel are great and some of them are within walking distance.
This last trip I forgot something in the room when we left and didn't realize I had forgotten it until we were home. I called them and they had found it and mailed it to me the next day. They are so wonderful there.

Room Tip: Rooms opposite the parking lot are great. They are closer to the covered tiki-like tables.

Green Features: The hotel is green. They have soap, shampoo, and conditioner dispensers instead of small bottles. They also have designated bins for glass, paper, plastic, and aluminum on the premises. I also like that they have beach toys and chair to borrow by the pool area. There is always enough for everyone.

Had a great stay! Room was pleasant and in a great location near the pool and beach. The kitchenette was convenient for small breakfast items and fridge was very helpful for keeping water and "adult beverages" cold!! We loved the early evening happy hours - it would be nice if it was located under the cute tiki hut near the pool and beach.
Check in was easy. Checking out was easy!
Would recommend and would stay again. My only small and unexpected complaint.... our beach towels we brought from home went missing the last night from our balcony chairs outside our room. We would leave them on our chairs at night to dry. Advised the front desk but nothing ever turned up. No big deal since I wasn't attached to the beach towels. Otherwise, excellent stay and will return in the future!!
