“Excellent value, extremely convenient”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

The host behind the desk was courteous and helpful. Our room was extremely clean (tub was dingy, but not dirty). We appreciated that the room had tile floors as they don't retain humidity like carpet does and can be easily swept if sand gets in. It was nice that the room had a ceiling fan. The "resort area" was clean and nice, and the whole place felt friendly and quiet (quiet hrs: 9am-9pm): we enjoyed our time as a couple but there were lots of families there and everyone seemed to be having a pleasant time. We LOVED the fact that our room door opened out onto an outdoor walkway instead of into an indoor hallway; SO much easier to go back and forth than having enter a building and wait on an elevator. The beach adjacent to the property was not at all crowded since there isn't any public beach access immediately nearby. We plan to return next year.

Green Features: Good: soap/shampoo/conditioner in dispensers to save bottles/waste. available recycling Acceptable: towels only washed if left in floor (hang on rack to reuse). A bit much: sheets washed every 7 days: switch your policy to every 3-- it's the beach; it's hot and sandy.

We had a great time at the Plaza Beach Resort and really enjoyed our stay over the Memorial Day weekend. The property is very clean and right on beautiful St. Pete Beach. The room was very nice with a small but just the right size kitchen. The beds were very comfortable and the room A/C was cool at night which is great after a day on the beach. The only negative was that the bathroom is small and only room for one. The pool was very nice and they have outdoor games by the pool and the hotel has a lot of nice private beach chairs. There are also a couple grills by the pool to cook on and some covered tables to eat at. It’s within walking distance to shopping and great seafood restaurants (Crabby Bills and Bongos are great and just down the beach). A nice amenity is a free nightly happy hour where the front desk sets out wine and beer that we took back out to our beach chairs and enjoyed the wonderful sunset. Jackie at the front desk was very helpful and friendly and we would gladly stay there again.

Being locals, we went to the beach at the last moment and did not have a reservation. We went into the Plaza Beach's office at 5 PM on a Friday and were warmly greeted by Katie at the front desk. She showed us the room that was available and explained the amenities on the property. We decided to stay for the night and we were very pleased with the accommodations. The room was nicely decorated and spotless. The pool was pleasant. The tiki bar served affordable libations and Chris was very pleasant and cordial. The location, on the gulf, was perfect. I gave the Plaza Beach 4 stars, rather than 5, because the A/C unit was very loud. However, when we mentioned this to the desk at check out they assured us that it would be looked at. We will definitely return to the Plaza Beach Hotel.

We stayed here 2-14 July and absolutely loved it. It was perfect for families. It is a small hotel with very clean rooms and a beautiful pool. The staff at the front desk is exceptionally helpful and pleasant. The beach bar was also wonderful. Barkeep Chris and owner Rick were great. Good tunes and cheap drinks at a beautiful beach. What more can you ask for? We'll be back.

this was our first time on the west coast of fl. and it was special, the staff were very professional and friendly. the beach and sunsets amazing. we met people who have been coming here for years. (seashell mike) and Barbara. it is a small family run hotel, I almost feel like telling you not too recommend it to your friends (just kidding) because we want to make sure we can get the same rooms next year. you you can have your big hotels where everything cost money, we are coming back to the plaza beach. see you at ricks tiki bar

We loved the Plaza Beach Resort! My sister and I went for short girls vacation. The hotel is beautiful. The rooms are clean and very nice. The pool was clean and a nice place to hang out! I can't wait to take my kids back. They will enjoy the checker board, and all of the games they had. The lounge chairs and hammocks on the beach are a great touch. We took advantage of those every evening. The beach bar was OK. When we went there were no mixed drinks. I am not really a beer drinker. I also loved the fact that we could enjoy the amenities of the other two resorts also. The staff was friendly! The beach was AMAZING! The free social hour and coffee in the morning is a nice touch.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a wonderful Five Star review of your stay at the Plaza Beach Hotel – Beachfront Resort. Our chairs and hammocks are the perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying the beach and amazing sunsets. Your stay was during the first few weeks of the beach bar opening. They do now offer some frozen drinks, so be sure to check that out on your next visit. I’m sure your kids will love our resort as much as you do!

I recently stayed at the Plaza Beach Resort and had a wonderful one nights stay at this property.
From the grounds to the rooms, the resort is meticulously clean and in tip top shape. The front desk staff are courteous and friendly, the pool area is very nice with the Tiki Bar an added bonus, and it's right on the beach with private lounge chairs and cabanas for guest use. My husband and I own and run our very own inn and know exactly where to look and what to look for when it comes to housekeeping oversights, and I was impressed with the cleanliness and attention to detail their staff brings to the plate. Well done you guys your great reviews are well deserved! We wish you continued success!
