This was our third year in a row to one of the Plaza Beach Resorts. We had a nice spacious one bedroom suite, with a huge living area, a kitchen, and two outside seating areas. Ask for a room overlooking the marina, rather than the main road for a little more privacy. Two of the Plaza Beach resorts allow dogs which was critical for us. There is a small area to bring your dog, plus a little fenced-in dog park. There are also plenty of side streets to walk down right around the corner between Walgreens and GiGi's. The grounds at the Bay Palms were beautifully kept and all pet owners were respectful of everyone.
The Proprieter and GM, Robert, could be seen out and about working along side the rest of the staff. Katie in the office was extremely helpful upgrading us to a nicer room. I had made my reservation using a travel site instead of directly with the hotel. Big mistake. The travel site did not communicate properly to the hotel our special requests. However, Katie took the time to be sure we had everything we needed. We will be back next year!
