I really don't know what everyone else is expecting for such a low cost on South Beach but anyhow, here are my two cents. Both my partner and I work for a luxury brand of hotel so I guess our expectations are quite high. However, we found the Beach Plaza to be adequate. Yes, rooms are old, but this is an Art Deco building and not a modern state of the art hotel. In our room, nothing was peeling, moldy or terribly old - but then again, we think the decor gives it character. Room was clean, large (we had a corner room), away from noise (request 2nd or 3d floor but be careful, there is construction on Collins), king bed comfortable, very few amenities (no coffee machine for example). In opposition to what others have said about housekeeping not cleaning their room, I suggest this may be their fault. We found our room perfectly cleaned everyday, unless the DND sign was up of course. Wifi is crap, if that's something you really need. Rooms can be noisy but that is to be expected anywhere really. Front desk staff friendly. The lady who attends the breakfast in the morning was very friendly! Breakfast was decent (bagels, oranges, coffee, yogourt) although it is not "free" since it's incorporated in the resort fee. Good place to rest your head for cheap, close to the beach. I will say however that the "concierge" service is absolutely horrible. I am a concierge myself and could not believe that they had the nerve to call themselves concierges. Recommended a restaurant that I, as a tourist, had already noticed was closed for business earlier in the week. They are only interested in pushing tours and transportation, from which they take big commissions. When asking anything unrelated to tours, they were not interested, often avoiding looking at us when answering, dismissing our question.
