“Great, family friendly beach hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

My 10 year old son and I stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of summer break . We had a great time. St Pete Beach is a beautiful beach no matter where you stay on it, but it's hard to find a quaint little place like this one, it's mostly covered in high rises. We didn't use all of the amenities that were available, like the free beer and wine happy hour, but we did enjoy the pool, the outdoor games, and the hammocks on the beach. The room was clean and it was nice to have the convenience of the kitchen in the room and a grocery store so close by. I booked with Hotwire.com, but would definitely stay there again if I could get a decent rate. I was considering adding another night since we were having such a good time, but was glad I didn't since it stormed the entire day that we left. We met a family from Britain who had been there a week and another from Toronto who were there for a three week stay. They all seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Room Tip: Only four rooms have a beach view with balcony. The rest face the parking lot or the side of the ho...

Thanks for taking the time to review your recent getaway. I’m glad you enjoyed the beach, pool, and games. We do offer a Low Price Guarantee, so if you find a lower rate on any of the various booking sites, we will match and beat it by $5. I welcome you back any time for another great stay.

We stayed at the Plaza Beach Resort in early August 2014. The service was amazing! Something you can only get anymore from a family-styled operation. They had wine and beer at happy hour every day, a very thorough list of close restaurants, and friendly staff who were never stumped by any question. The rooms were very clean. The kids enjoyed going from the pool to the beach and back. It was great fun for all!

We stayed for 3 days in August. Clean and not crowded beach front on the Gulf of Mexico. Our rooms has kitchenette with Publix and Walgreens across the street. Several colourful "muskoka" chairs on the beach to watch the beautiful sunset. Our teenage kids had fun with the oversize chess, shuffleboard and bean bag thows located next to their pool. We enjoyed their daily happy hour (free wine and beer) between 4-5pm. Brenda was especially courteous and helpful. Tony the A/C maintenance guy helped us with good local knowledge (regarding restaurants, etc). This resort has a personal touch to it not a distant feeling that you get in larger commercial resorts.

We loved our stay here. Heated pool was nice. Beach wasn't crowded but was close enough to "the action" so that a short drive could give you both. One morning we had swarms of sting rays right by the shore followed by a Manatee. Not sure we could have experienced that at a more crowded resort. We stayed at the beach front but a short walk got us to their location in the inlet and the fishing there was great. You could see rays jumping 3+ feet out of the water hunting right around dusk. Stay here and, if you have the urge to get in on more of the normal vacation action such as shopping, bars restaurants, all you have to do is take a short bus ride. Great way to have the best of both worlds.

Room Tip: I would spring for one of the two rooms with a balcony actually facing the beach. Most of the rooms...

This was our 8th year staying at the always delightful Plaza Beach Hotel and it has yet to disappoint. Lovely, clean rooms with just a very short walk to a white sandy wide open St Pete Beach passing the large and inviting pool on the way. We love this spot because the owners and staff treat every guest like family with ease of accommodations. In fact, we see some of the same folks here on each visit and look forward to those reunions over food and beverage including a daily Happy Hour in the Guest Lobby. A very nice treat was also added this year with the opening of the quaint Rick's Reef bar on the property. We will return as often as we can to this special hotel for relaxing getaways to remember!

The resort is VERY family friendly. All staff were friendly and accomodating. We dealt mainly with Brenna at the front desk who was very polite and pleasant. Chris at the Tiki Bar was also very friendly and pleasant. It impressed me that after having introduced myself to him at the bar the first day, he welcomed me by name every day afterward. Zihalda who was our housekeeper was very good at maintaining the room. She was also very accomodating with any requests. The hotel is situated on a great property with an excellent pool and beach access. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and roomy. Thank you for an excellent experience.

The Plaza Beach Hotel is in a great St. Pete Beach location, walking distance to many restaurants and grocery/c-stores.
The pool and beach are right there! that goes without saying

It is a very nice family type place, and Rick's beach front Tiki Bar is a very nice little beverage place with very good prices. Wish he offered poolside service.

I would certainly go back again as the staff and clientele was pleasant and inviting.

Room Tip: Only four-rooms face the beach but, they are also right next to the pool. The layout of the hotel me...
