I was a bit surprised to see all those negative reviews from everybody! I did not think this place was all that bad for the price. We arrived in Miami early one morning having flown in from Peru. We did not have any reservations and started calling hotels from the airport. (By the way there is no information, or hotel assistance at Miami hotel whatsoever, which I found very disappointing, so we had to rely on a guide which I bought from the UK).
We wanted to stay in South Beach. We called a few hotels and they were either fully booked or ridiculously expensive and then we found the Plaza (By the way, South Beach Plaza Villas and the Beach Plaza are under the same management). The price was around $100 a night for a king size bed, which I thought was really good for the area. We only stayed a couple of nights.
The room was on the small side, but it was clean, recently renovated and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit tired, but clean. The stuff was friendly. The only thing I didn't like was that the TV did not have a remote control but then again who watches much tv on vacation?
Our room was in separate small building at the back of the garden, with an independent entrance separate to the main building. To be honest, the rooms in the main building didn't look that great (they were also cheaper if I remember correctly), so my advice would be that if you are planning to book at this hotel be careful which room you ask for, especially given all those bad reviews below.
The area between the garden and the entrance lobby smelt too much of bathroom freshener. Apart from that, it was a pleasant stay.
