“second home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

I have been bringing my family to south beach plaza hotel since 2007 and everytime we stay here the staff is great rooms are always clean!. Sabastian is the absolute best I have came back every year to the same hotel for seven yrs in a row an wouldnt go any where else. This hotel doesnt have a pool or hot breakfast but u have a friendly staff and the beach is less then 5 min away. Plus ocean dr is right there for your own convience. If your staying to party and see south beach! This Location is PERFECT!!! This is truely my second home will be back 2014!

Great location, it's 1 block from south beach and all the sobe amenities. Good continental breakfast, the crew is excellent always willing to help. Free internet helps. Parking for $27 a day is reasonable given the parking situation in sobe.

I wish: rooms were little bigger, the internet login credential didn't need to be entered during every new login and the concierge was less salesy.

Overall happy with my stay.

Excellent location, only a block from the beach, walking distance to restaurants and nightlife. Our room was clean, comfortable and cool. Room and bathroom updated. Had a nice bar in the lobby and a great porch to sit and enjoy. Staff was friendly and very accomodating. We arrived 3 hours prior to check in and the held our bags. Also held our bags when we checked out and had 2 hours kill. Would stay there again, and again...

Room Tip: Elevator is small. Recommend first floor room - no view but convenient.

Excellent location to the beach and various attractions. The hotel is currently going through a restoration in the courtyard, but this does not effect hotel guests in anyway, leaving the possibility of a nicer outdoor section. Construction along Collins, no fault to the hotel, makes it slower than usual to drive to the hotel.

Sebastian at the front desk shined at his guest service attitude, very professional,which reflected in every way possible in the most positive manner possible in his handling of guest services. A true asset to the hotel!

My only comment is the shades within the room- they could be better, in order to insure not so much light comes in; makes it harder to sleep. The rooms are nice, classic look and feel, but still modern.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel, I think you will be very happy!

Our stay was very pleasant. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the proximity to the beach is great. Our room was clean. We appreciated the hardwood floors in our room as we were always tracking sand back to the room. The hotel is older, and if you come expecting it to be like a modern Hilton, you will be disappointed. The bathroom is smaller and less fashionable than new hotels. Breakfast was free and typical for many hotels: bagels, muffins, yogurt, juice, hot water for oatmeal, and coffee. If you need more than this to be happy, you need to plan on going out to eat or stay somewhere else. There are many restaurants nearby. You need to be aware that you are staying right on South Beach, which is a party kind of place on the weekends. Depending on your room location, you will hear outside noise (music, people laughing, etc.). It was not an issue for us, but we live in a house full of teens and are used to a bit of noise while we sleep. We did not hear much room to room noise, except while in the bathroom we could occasionally hear the neighbors. The front porch of the hotel is a nice place to sit, eat breakfast and watch people. Parking at South Beach is tough. We paid the $25/day valet parking at the hotel. It was well worth the expense.

I was very sceptical reading the negative comments about this place, we came hoping for the best. At the reception we immidediatly asked for a quiter located room, we were told our room was at the back by the garden. Our luggage was taken up to our room by a very polite bellboy! Our room was awesum! Its was large with a sofa and had a kitchenette in. I assume we got one of the villas of beach plaza. Everything was really clean and smelled fresh. The bathroom was a good size to.
We had a king size bed which slept very comfortably.
The place is located on quite a busy street so a bit of noise is normal and acceptable.
Its also close to the beach, just one block away, unfortunately we had lots of rain so had to keep busy doing other things.

One downside of this hotel is definatly that it has no free parking. They offer a valet parking for $27.95/day which you can use as you please. If you dont use the valet service you have to leave your car on the street and pay per hour. The streets are also very busy around the hotel. Do make sure you dont leave valuables or small change in the car. Though we only had under $2 in coins (for toll routes) it went missing. Not making a big fuss about the coins that got stolen, but seeing you pay so much money for secure parking you atleast expect your car and everything in it to be safe!

Other than that great place to stay! Would recommend to anyone on a budget!

Room Tip: Ask for a villa they are bigger, and located toward the back so less noise.

The front desk staff were very pleasant and the porch overlooking the main drag is a nice place to do some people watching. Like many others have commented the place needs TLC. Peeling paint, dingy, dirty corridors and the included breakfast is pathetic. The only thing we could eat were the fresh oranges. The walls are paper thin so we heard all the drunken teenagers coming back from the bars.
South Beach is a very expensive destination and our friends paid 5 times what we did to stay at the Ritz-Carlton for an average room. Don't know what to recommend. Pay something in between and stay on the beach to really enjoy what this place has to offer.

Room Tip: Save up and stay someplace decent
