My parner and I just stayed at Palm Plaza. It's a great place to stay on your visit. Everything is easily accessible. The thing that really got me though was how fabulous the manager was. Eddie could not have been more accomodating- I can't say enough good things about him- VERY sweet!

My partner and I just spent a week at the Palm Plaza. We have stayed there many times before and will return. The hotel has new owners and a new manager. The manager, Edward, was very accommodating and work hard to provide a nice environment for all of the guest. The new owners are making improvements to the property.( The new beds are great!)
The hotel is an older building but it is clean and the well maintained. It is a great value for the money. The pool area is nice and it is only a two block walk to the beach. The hotel seems to attract a "non-party" crowd and is a nice alternative to the resorts that are noisy all night long. Also the wireless internet works great.

Room Tip: The suites are great if you want to cook, or for an extended stay.

We've stayed many times at the PP, and are always pleased with the accomodations. The property is not new, but has so much of the "Key West" charm, very clean and well maintained. During the last several months the property has had some subtle updates and improvements in and out to compliment our visit. Edward the manager and his staff are always friendly and accomodating to attend to our comfort and needs. The location is awesome for a short walk to the beach and a variety of dining options. Thanks Edward...see you next time!

This was our 6th visit to the property....and as always we had a nice visit. The new staff was very friendly and accommodating. We always request the same room and was pleased to see the refrigerator in the mini-suite was upgraded to full-size as we sometimes bring leftovers from dinner out. If we had any complaints at all, our room on the end tends to have quite a few mosquitoes around the outdoor bistro set we like to have our morning coffee on (but hey it is Florida, right?)...Also, we noticed the housekeepers didn't vacuum daily like they had done in the past, but like I said this is minor stuff in the overall picture. We will be back!

Great location, friendly staff....clean.... but out dated.. It seems to have lost its charm that distinguished its self from other properties in the area.

There is so much potential for this place...just cleaning up all the clutter in the rooms...and the garden would have made it more appealing. The TV's were the size of suitcases....(a wall mounted flat screen would help)...the furniture was used old yard sale looking furniture. The carpets were thread bare and stained ....I could go on.

OK I will...... the old A/C rattled and beeped all night....but it sure kept the room cool...however there was only one setting...freezing...or off. My room did not even have a smoke detector. When I mentioned it to the front desk they said that they are renovating the place and will put one in later.....I don't think the fire marshall would be too happy to hear that as an excuse.

A few good things were free WIFI...ability to use the other sister properties. The gym the pool.
As for value for money...a bit pricey for what you got. There idea of a complimentary breakfast was lame. A basket in the fridge with bottled OJ...a cheap packaged muffin you would get on an airplane...and yogurt.
They could have showed a bit of effort by setting up a small table with fresh coffee, fresh OJ..(it is Florida)..and fresh pastries.

So if you are looking for a out dated clean motel...stay there...otherwise do your research and remember...pictures can be deceiving ....they were at this place...

Thank you very much for your comments.

In October 2012, we became a part of The North Beach Village Group, owners of multiple resorts in the area. We work closely with our new company to provide excellent customer service and provide unsatisfied guests other lodging options when occurrences like this happen. Every day we are making improvements such as new linen and food services to housekeeping staff and property maintenance. We are hoping to renovate the build some time this year, so the problems you outlined will be fixed.

A few things I did want to point out. We have replaced all of the smoke alarms in the rooms. When you pointed out that we did not have one in your room, we put a portable one in the closet. Never would I allow a room to go without protection.

The daily room price we offer is at price point compared to all of the other resorts in the area. We make sure that we are not over pricing our rooms. Please look at some of our other resorts to compare. We are the only resort in our company that provides the daily baskets in the rooms. Once we renovate, we will be equipped with a continental breakfast room and offer more variety.

I hope you will come back once the renovations are completed. Visit our new website which has the most up to date photos of the place.
