“Great little gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We returned to the Plaza Beach Resort for the eighth year in a row renewing acquaintances with other families who come at the same time and meeting new friends. The lay out of the hotel is such that it is easy to mingle easily.if you like helped along by nightly Happy Hours! The beach front is beautiful and the surrounding restaurants, beach front bars and stores make it an easy place to stay. Of course- what can beat the amazing sunsets?
The front desk members/staff are friendly and always helpful! Rooms have nice small kitchens and are cleaned well each day.
If you want a great get away for a reasonable price and fabulous location- the Plaza Beach is the place for you.

A good hotel. More expensive than hotels in Orlando but it is a beach front hotel and that comes with a price. The rooms where nice and clean, Zayda looked after us and was really nice and friendly. Luanne from reception was equally helpfull and made us feel welcomed. The location is very convinient as there is a publix literally across the street. The pool is nice, but can get crowded and the beach is not as close as it appears in the picture.
Overall the hotel grows on you. We stayed 7 nights and enjoyed our stay.

Right on the beach, convenient, (4 to 5 AM) happy hour, local restaurant list with transit times to them, pool, charcoal grills set up for your evening grilling, washer and dryer, cabanas and coffee time (8 to 11 AM). It is the human interaction that makes this unique. Even the AC is quieter than found in many other hotels. Down sides: no coffee in room but there are coffee makers with filters. Sheets are a bit on the old side. A slight musty smell to the room we were in. Overall great value where it counts.

We live on the other coast of Florida but wanted to check out the Gulf coast. Found this place on tripadvisor and after reading such good reviews we thought we would give it a shot. Upon checking in the staff at the desk, Katie and Jackie, were friendly, polite, smiling and very helpful. After checking in and settling in our rooms we discovered the TV would not work. We called the desk and they immediately sent up someone to troubleshoot the situation, which turned out to just be a connection issue, nothing major. The room itself was great...nicely remodeled bathroom which was VERY clean, king size bed with comfortable pillows, big screen TV, fridge, stove, the amenities were there! We had one of the 2 beachfront view balcony rooms which was just lovely. We watched the sunset every evening with a great view! The beach was gorgeous and the water very warm and inviting. We noticed that the hotel is kept very well and every day the grounds were maintained including pool area and common areas. The maid service was very polite and offered to bring us anything extra we would need.

Overall we had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay at this nice small hotel and would highly recommend staying here to anyone who wants a wonderful stay on the beach in a clean, nicely run hotel. It does have more of a low-key beach style feel to it so if you prefer super high class resorts with all the fancy-schmancy thrills, bells and whistles this might not work for you. Otherwise, this place is a charm!

Room Tip: The upper balcony rooms that overlook the beach are the best!!!! Quiet too!

This is a small family owned hotel in a great location right on the beach. Everything has recently been remodeled and is being well maintained. The room is fully equipped and has plenty of space. There are barbeque grills available to prepare meals on as well. You have direct beach access as well as being close to stores and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Room Tip: We were in a second story room which I think has a better view of things.

We originally thought we would stay here for 4 nights but ended up staying for two additional nights. Right on the beach, rooms and grounds were very clean. Both maintenance and front desk staff was excellent. Very good choice of amenities for a small quaint hotel. Nice kitchenette and full size fridge. We are coming back next year for a family reunion.
