“Wow and Wow Again”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

We finally found a hotel on the beach that had amenities that was not too too expensive. The location is wonderful if you want to be on St. Pete beach. The rooms are spacious with a fun Murphy bed to allow more room. The front desk was always helpful and patient- and Samantha was FABULOUS! She is a keeper :-) Maria the housekeeper went over and beyond expectations- the room had not one speck of sand.

All in all, no need to spend more $$$ at the nearby hotel- this one is great!

From the moment on Thanksgiving eve we arrived at the front desk, where Michelle and Samantha made us feel so welcome, everything about the Grand Plaza was wonderful. The entire property, including the very well-appointed rooms, is beautifully kept. The staff is friendly, professional and very accommodating. Kudos to the general manager who makes it all happen.The beach is spectacular as are all the views of the beach and the Gulf of Mexico throughout the resort. Then there's Bongo's, a wonderful, literally right-on-the-beach venue, where you can get a drink or a bite to eat or just sit and listen to live music. And all that at a very reasonable price. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

My wife and I stayed two nights at this hotel. Frankly, the hotel itself is a bit dated and in need of some renovation. I guess since it is on the beach, it has the feel of an older beach house. We prefer carpeting in rooms and a larger bathroom and/or vanity area (which it did not have). The hotel is old, but without question, it is a great value compared to surrounding hotels which I checked out before making our reservation. The location on the beach is terrific. The friendliness of the staff was great. We got in late and Michelle was kind enough to upgrade our room so we would have a better view of the ocean. She was very nice and a pleasure to work with. We did not eat in the Spinner Restaurant. One evening after walking a long way on the beach we had drinks and dinner at the Hotel's Bongo Cafe on the beach. Outstanding atmosphere. The service, staff, and food were excellent. It was a great experience. Overall, for the money in comparison to other hotels in the area and all things considered, I would recommend this hotel. We would stay in it again if the opportunity arises.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room if they have any.

Two years ago we did not have a good experience here. My wife made the reservation not knowing it was the same place I had stayed some time back.

My experience this time was so much better , I had to write a review, which generally I only do when something is wrong. This was a great experience, the grounds were much cleaner, the staff, from restaurant to front desk to engineers were over the top helpful, whoever trains and hires these folks deserves five stars!

Make no mistake, this is an older hotel, things are not perfect, but for the dollars spent , this is ten stars. The rooms have been redone nicely and the restaurant at the top is superb. the pool is heated to about 88 degrees, the Internet works well, but it is the staff that make it great.

My wife and I stayed for one night and even for one night only this hotel blew our breaths away!!! As soon as you walk in you are greeted by one of the friendliest staff I have ever encountered. They were also very quick and accurate. The hotel's decor was the true definition of serenity. Felt like I rented out a beach house. Room had everything and more. White cozy beds, white blinds that revealed a stunning ocean view(highly recommend watching the sunset), a work station, private balcony with seating area overlooking Bongos, spacious, free wifi, 32 in plasma TV, a beautiful couch and a wall bed. We stayed on Thanksgiving day and were visiting family so we could not experience their restaurants but looking forward to it in our next stay for Valentines Day. Grand Plaza is a definite couples retreat. Best part of all, the price was right. Highly, highly recommend to EVERYONE!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 512, partial ocean view, partial city view, right above Bongos.
