“Family friendly and clean and right on St Pete Beach !”
Reviewed July 1, 2009

Came down with my 12 yr old daughter for a few days to relax and to visit my friend who lives in Largo. The Plaza Beach Resort was a nice small two story clean motel with beautiful nooks for seating areas and garden touches. Our accomodations included a King Bed (very comfortable), kitchenette and seating area, adequate storage for clothing, etc and a small bathroom with tub - shower. (bathrooms are efficient but may need some updating soon). Felt very spacious. It is a nice "mom and pop" place with friendly and helpful owners and employees (Robert, Rose and a few others I met made our trip wonderful). I prefer these places over the high rise hotels with the longest walk ever to pool and beach areas LOL. This place has a nice pool, BBQ area, shuffle board, life size chess game, and many areas to sit and relax and have a beverage. The beach is directly in front of the pool - a very short walk. Beautiful ! Across the street within walking distance are Walgreen's, Mobil gas station (with Dairy Queen inside), a bit further down is the plaza with Publix, CVS, liquor store, some shops and the Blue Fugu Japanese Restaurant (it is on the very far right in the plaza on 2nd floor). They have an early bird special (4pm to 6pm) for $15 pp for the Teppenyaki-Hibachi dinner. Well worth it and delicious ! I also sampled their sushimi and it was delicious and beautifully prepared. I had to take a picture LOL. If you are looking for clean, comfortable, relaxing place to stay with your family for a very modest price - this is THE place to stay. I met SEVERAL families and couples who have been coming to this place for many many years. It is nice to hear ! We will definitely be back with my whole family next time !

My husband and I had a room with a balcony. Great sunsets and the staff was very nice. We had a late flight out and was waiting for our taxi and the staff gave us access to the break room so we would have a more comfortable wait. The only negative thing about the trip was the shuttle. You had to wait 30 minutes to an hour at the stop, because unless you were standing directly at the stop it would pass you by! And the worse part was at night the driver would pull over right when you got on and take breaks up to 30 minutes. Very frustrating when you are ready to get home. I would definitely stay at the Plaza again but would rent a car.

This being our first time to the St Pete area we didn’t know where to stay. There were hundreds of hotel options and hundreds of reviews. We ended up choosing the Plaza Beach Resort on St Pete Beach because the rate was great and we wanted a smaller more private beachfront resort. I am happy to report that the Plaza Beach Resort did not disappoint, everything on their website was accurate and the rooms were very well maintained. The location could not be any better either, everything is really in walking distance or just across the street in the shopping center. The beach has powder white sand that you can walk for miles, and plenty of beach bars. We will definitely be back to the Plaza Beach Resort. See you there.

When I decided to go to florida for vacation i went onto triadvisor to pick and choice which hotel to stay at. I have to stay that my 2 choice in florida for hotels were just like the reviews said. I found out about trip advisor from on of the hotel owners in colorado. This hotel meet all my expectation. Rob (i think that aws his name) was the owner of this hotel. He was great to make sure we were taken care of.

This hidden gem deserves kudos for delivering old-fashioned value and hospitality at unbelievable prices. Excellent location and friendly, accommodating ownership. I travel all over the US for my job and have the highest level Hilton Honors designation so I am used to staying in 4 star properties. The is not for hotel snobs or high maintenance people but if you want a great stay at a cozy property right on the beach that brings back memories of what family-owned hotels used to mean, then this place is for you. frankly If i didn't promise the owners that I would write a review I would have preferred to keep this wonderful boutique a secret..LOL...

Friendly, Quaint, Clean. Why stay at a large, expensive, impersonal chain when you get great customer service at a reasonable price at this little gem right on the Gulf. The room was large and very clean. The pool was clean as was the deck area. Robert, one of the owners, was very helpful when we inquired about doing a sunset cruise. Dolphin landing is across the street as is a Publix. The Trolley stop is right out front if you want to keep the car parked and hop on. The owners also have other properties on the Bay and you can use facilities at them. Though we didn't this time Robert mentioned they had fishing poles and a fitness center over there.

My partner and I were just wanting to get away to the beach for a couple of days and nights. That is how we relax - the beach, ocean, and watching nice sunsets. We live in Central Florida and have gone to other places for leisure. This was our first stay at the Plaza Beach Resort. From the first moment we stepped into our room until the time we checked out it was awsome! The room we had was nice, clean, and had all the extras needed to make our stay easier (refrig., microwave, little stove, kitchen sink, iron and board, nice t.v., little couch). We are on somewhat of a budget so those little things helped us save money instead of going out all of the time. If you do want to eat out their are many places right their within walking distance too. IN SHORT: I would suggest Plaza Beach Resort to my family, friends, everyone that would like to enjoy their stay along the beach. OH and the beach is right there (you dont have to cross a street or jump fences to get there). They even have a nice clean pool there. STAY HERE... I GUARENTEE YOU WILL LIKE IT. IT IS A NICE PLACE TO STAY AND ENJOY YOUR TIME TOGETHER WITH FAMILY AND EVEN MAKE NEW FRIENDS. (If you are a loud party animal try one of the bigger resorts.)
