“Don't miss this one!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

This quiet little getaway has it all... nice rooms, pool, spa, dockage, on the water. The staff was super friendly, the rooms were extra clean, all parking is very close to the doors. Good hot breakfast each morning. Close to the beach, shopping, dining, parks. I can't think of a thing to improve on!

Room Tip: The suites on the north side are extra nice and have a view of the water and pool from the balcony.

Found this hotel through the hotel coupon book we picked up on Interstate 95. It was truly a great find. The hotel was within walking distance to the beach on Hutchinson Island and along the inlet. The accommodations were very clean and attractively furnished. We had a partial view of the inlet and small balcony which we enjoyed since it faced the west and we were able to take advanage of the sun during an unusual cold snap. We were able to walk to a local restaurant which was excellent as well as walk the attractive neighborhood which provided bike lanes on the main road coming in as well as walkways along the inlet to the bach. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good find for the money. Only comment was the $5.00 surcharge for resort services which we did not know about. If we used the pool, boat dock or jacucci, it would have more than paid for itself.

Thank you very much for your great review of not only our hotel but of Hutchinson Island as well! We are so pleased you found us through the coupon book, and that you enjoyed nearly every aspect of your stay. I apologize that you were unaware of the $5.00 resort fee, however it is printed on the coupon and on the registration form. You are correct on the fact however that it more than covers all the ammenities we have to offer, such as the deluxe continental breakfast, WIFI that is included in the room, as well as an in room safe and free parking for one vehicle. I'm very pleased to hear that the staff was friendly and that you found the room to be clean and comfortable, which is what we pride ourselves on. We hope to see you again in the near future, and hopefully you will get to enjoy the warm weather we are famous for!

The staff and management are excellent. Outstanding accomodations in a great location...right on the water. We've been coming back here every year for ten years. Stay here once and you will too. You will not find a better or nicer hotel in the Fort Pierce area. We can't wait to return.

Thank you Ed and Diane for taking the time to write such a wonderful review! As someone who has worked here almost as long as you've been staying here, it pleases me to see that you will return again and again. I hope on your most recent visit you did notice all the positive changes since the new ownership took effect, like our deluxe high quality bedding, new flat screen TV's, and our special breakfast items that are now available extended hours until 10am on the weekdays and 10:30am on the weekends. We have loved having you as our guest over the years, and it's unfortunate that you can only make it down this way once a year. We will await your return next year, and hope you survive the cold winter up there in Colorado! Thanks again!

This hotel is close to the beach (within walking distance) and to several restaurants (short drive). Clean, quiet and nice breakfast. Heated pool, large jacuzzi and tiki bar on the waterway. Fishing pier with boat slips- great for boaters. Will stay again!

Thank you for sharing your lovely review of the hotel and the island! I'm glad you were able to take a stroll down to the beach, and spend some time relaxing by our heated pool and jacuzzi. I'm pleased you were able to enjoy our hot breakfast served daily until 10am, and hope you had some luck fishing off our pier available 24 hours a day. We look forward to seeing you again, and hope you can bring your boat next time!

We spent three weeks recently driving 1600 miles around Florida, from St. Augustine, to Key West, to Anna Maria Island, to Orlando. This was the least satisfying room of the journey, thankfully a single night. I selected this hotel (also called in local literature, the Sandhurst Hotel & Suites) based on Tripadvisor reviews.... We were give a room opposite the elevator, adjacent to an ice maker from hell. Room overlooked the parking lot. Bed and bath were clean, so that met the basic needs. Not much else did.

- One set of towels for each of us (large, small, wash cloth), most places leave more.
- Oxidised soap bar - been sitting in a store room for a long time.
- Room generally dusty.
- Inadequate lighting. No light on desk.
- Old style showerhead.
- Shower curtain too short for tub allowing water to spray out on the floor.
- All four pillows hard as a rock.
- No info out describing area, attractions, tv channels, the usual stuff found in most hotels.
- A/C was old fashioned unit controlled on the unit, not by room thermostat.
- Nice Samsung flat screen looked like crap based on low-def feed and lack of picture setup.
- Breakfast (a good point) ends at nine, an hour earlier than all other properties on our trip.

I believe there are many more desirable and predictable properties close by. My advice is to bypass the Hutchinson Island Plaza.

Room Tip: Ask for something on the back end facing the waterway.

Thank you for writing a review, we appreciate your feedback and take your comments and suggestions very seriously. We have made multiple attempts to contact you but unfortunately haven't heard back.

I sincerely apologize for the fact that you found your room to be anything but spotless, comfortable and accommodating. Unfortunately during your stay it was an extremely busy time at the hotel and you were placed in a room that hasn't been reconditioned since the new ownership occurred. This is not the normal guest experience, and if you look at the other reviews you will see this. We offer 3 different types of rooms, our Royal Palm waterfront suite, the Majesty room which is the type of room you were in that has a balcony with a view of the inlet, and the Sabal room.

Since your stay in December we have already corrected some of the issues you found. Breakfast has now been extended to 10am on the weekdays, and 10:30am on the weekends. All the rooms have been given brand new high quality pillows. We are in the process of adding new showerheads to every room. And there are guest directories being printed as we speak with local area information and all the hotel information that will be placed in every room.

Again, please get back to us whenever you get a chance so we can discuss this further. We take great pride in knowing that we are the best hotel on Hutchinson Island with the cleanest most comfortable rooms, and the most amenities to offer all for a very reasonable price. Thank you again, we hope to see you in the future.

I found Hutchingson Island Ft. Pierce by mistake, I got lost :) stayed in another hotel down the road. Loved the area so much I looked for another place to stay that was much nicer than before. That's when I found Hutchinson Island Plaza Hotel and Suites. Love this place so much I now visit once a month for my "get a away" trip from my daily life. The staff is awesome. Always friendly and ready to make your trip a wonderful one. I have been going there now for the past several months with no complaints. My next monthly trip is this weekend and I'm so EXCITED!
