“Great stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Hotel clean and friendly staff.
Could use a little update on the tub. Very well kept great room for the price.
Breakfast was very good and plenty of every thing.
Quiet and peaceful.
Only complaint was neighbor smoking on their balcony.

As a solo traveler, I wanted something affordable yet right on the water since no one was splitting the cost with me. Hutchinson Island Plaza Hotel was the answer. My room was large, clean, and the view of the inlet was beautiful. It's also QUIET! I never heard other guests unless a door slammed (caused by having the sliding doors open in conjunction with a gust of wind). Great pillows and firm bed (I prefer plushiest of plush) but didn't have too much trouble sleeping.
Hotel lends you beach/pool sized towels which was very important. Plenty of towels in the bathroom too. Breakfast was meh but good enough before a good hearty lunch at one of the MANY nearby restaurants. There is also a small shop for beer, drinks, newspapers and candy etc next to the check-in desk.
Because the hotel is on the inlet, the sand on the private (yet tiny) beach is soft and white. Big difference from the ocean beach sand (which is within a mile or two). Also, the waves are so small that you can sit in the water and read. The private beach is steps from the pool. The pool is small and heated and there is a nice sized hot tub too. The hotel allows you to move the lounge chairs from the pool area to the beach. The location of the pool and private beach is SO convenient that you can take easily run back to your room to tinkle or grab water from the room's fridge. Since it isn't a huge hotel, the pool and breakfast area were never crowded.
The room décor is fine. It's not modern like the $300/night hotels in the area. Palm trees on the curtains but more importantly, the curtains are BLACK OUT curtains which is perfect for a good sleep. Basically, it's not a flashy style. TV is a flat screen and has TONS of channels. I even loved the clock radio that allows you to charge your smartphone and listen to music through the clock radio speakers. Plastic chairs on the balcony are ok but a bit uncomfortable for me (I'm nit picking).
Listen, if you are looking to point out minor issues like rust on the door hinges, then move along to the more expensive hotels. This hotel at this price and this location and with all the surrounding amenities is perfect.
On a final note, my flight was scheduled to leave well after check-out time and I asked if I could hang out at the pool after I vacated my room. They said YES and even allowed me to continue to use the beach towels. I will stay here again and again.

Thank you Jamie for such a wonderful and detailed review! I am thrilled to see that you really enjoyed your stay and that you discovered our little island getaway. You are 100% correct on what we are trying to accomplish, a clean comfortable hotel with a friendly staff and loads of ammenities all for a very reasonable price. Our beach is cleaned and raked daily and just perfect for sitting out to get some sun or read a book without being disturbed by others. We do welcome you to take a chair down and just relax while watching the boats go by or admiring the local sea life. I am so pleased to hear you will be back and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future!

This place was such a surprise! We lived in Fort Pierce many years and travel back at least twice a year to see our son. The hotel is clean and quiet and the staff is friendly and helpful. A special thank you to Cheri, the front desk clerk. She is an asset to the hotel. Also a big thank you to Erica, the lovely girl that cleaned our room. We will be booking again for September! From now on we will stay there on all our visits.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the intercostal waterway are available, but we had a goo side view from the east side.

Thank you for sharing your enjoyable experience with us at the Hutchinson Island Plaza Hotel! We are so pleased to hear that you discovered us and will be back. It's great to know that the staff, particularly Cherri and Erica, made such an impression and lived up to our expectations of providing top notch customer service. Your tip is very helpful to others, while the waterfront suites do have a direct view, our Majesty rooms on the side still offer sights of the inlet. Thank you again, we look forward to having you as our guest again!

This is the fourth or fifth time we have stayed at this hotel and find the improvements with the new ownership to be very positive. The room was clean and pleasant. The pillows are great. The mattress was a little too firm for me, but that is a personal preference. The location is just right, close enough to the beach and restaurants and the local events. The breakfast was tasty and the coffee very good. The front desk staff and housekeeping staff were friendly and efficient. I highly recommend this property and will stay there each time I visit Ft. Pierce.

This hotel was just a getaway from the long cold winter we were looking for. The staff was very courteous and friendly. The breakfast was better than we expected. Just steps away from restaurants, and the beach. You don't even have to leave North Hutchinson Island if you don't want too. Just sit back, relax, and let the staff do what they do best....Make your stay at the Hutchinson Island Plaza as rememberable as you want it to be.

This little gem is a local hotel but everyone was so friendly they have boat slips as well.. Such a cute place and will return. The rooms are nice but the shower could use an update..the breakfast was your typical hotel free breakfast.. Pool was heated and the hot tub was broken when we first got there and was fix before we left. They also have fishing pier. Also you can rent polls from the hotel and there is a bait shop with in walking distance!!

We chose this hotel sight unseen and were most pleased to find it in such a prime location. The beach and fishing jetty were right at our finger tips and several wonderful restaurants were conveniently close to the hotel. What struck us most was the courteous demeanor shown by the staff from the moment we booked our reservation to checking in. The room provided for our stay had a nice view of the Inlet and was nicely furnished and comfortable. The availability of WiFi was a plus. All this and a wonderful complimentary breakfast are included in the very affordable room rate .We recommend this hotel highly and look forward to returning to this "little Jewel by the Ocean" the next time we are in the area.
