The rooms are very clean and very quiet. There is a 'group' room with books, games and a happy hour every day. Nice to meet others if you want. The only improvement could be the bed, as it was a bit soft. There are local stores within walking distance(Walgreens, Publix) and a bar around the corner. I would return there again!

Given where it is on the budget scale, the Plaza does a good job. It's clean, the folks at the front desk are very friendly, and of course it's right on the beach. My only two complaints were:
1) the wifi signal was totally insufficient from our room. Why do so many hotels have a problem with this? It would have been a real issue if we were staying for a long time.
2) The bed was uncomfortable, moreso than the average budget motel bed.

But otherwise, the Plaza was a good deal for the money.

True, the Plaza Beach Hotel is in the "retro or art deco style" of older hotels, so this kind of place may not be for the traveler who likes to stay at modern, high-end hotels. But, the Plaza Beach has just been updated and the rooms are clean and fresh. The bathrooms, though just large enough to accommodate one person at a time, have been updated and modernized. The beach is immediately outside the door of the rooms. The pool is nice. They have free beer and wine social hour from 4 PM to 5 PM. Due to the design of the building, only a few rooms actually front the Gulf of Mexico. We got one of the Gulf Front rooms and very much enjoyed out private beach front balcony on the 2nd floor. The only negative was that the AC was loud when it came on. That didn't seem to borrow my wife who slept soundly through the night, but it kept me awake at times. We live in Tampa and will most likely return again for another brief getaway at the beach.

Room Tip: The Gulf front rooms are nice

Our first time staying here; jumped around to other places on the beach in the past since we were never completely satisfied. We have found the one place that offers everything: clean, comfortable, convenient. The pool area is very nice and offers sunny locations as well as a great shaded tiki hut.
No more looking around for us; this is where we will return and recommend to others.

We stayed at the Plaza Beach Resort for three nights in May. It was a wonderful getaway for us as we live in The Villages, Florida which is only two hours away. The weather was perfect and the accommodations were good. The location is right on the beach so we simply left our room and took a short stroll to the water's edge. The beach itself is beautiful and had very soft sand unlike the course seashell sand on Treasure Island.
The owners and staff at this resort take great pride in accommodating their guests and the cleanliness of the room and property was remarkable. Our room, we found out was due for remodeling...so there were some minor deficiencies. The owner, who we met at a Village's travel show said all the rooms would be upgraded soon. The pool was right on the beach and was beautiful and heated.
Another advantage was shopping and attractions are very close by....and definitely check out Ft. Desoto beach and Billy's Crab house, which is on the way to Ft. Desoto.
All in all...we highly recommend the Plaza Beach Resort and will return in the future.
