well, I know that everyone's perception is different. And, on any given day, things can be great for some people & bad for others. But....I was disappointed in the Plaza Beach. I know that with small hotels, choices are limited, but, I think that saying they offer King beds when probably 4 rooms out of all have them is crappy. They of course are trying to cram as many people in a room as possible, but, I didn't like the Queen beds. The room had a moldy/musty smell, that I think may have been the A/C unit, not sure. I bought some air fresheners. Yes, the bathroom is VERY small, but ok. The door frame next to the tub was molded & needed replacement-from constant water exposure. Also, GENERAL Cleaning improvements including the SHOWER HEAD & faucets/drain closures need addressed. USE some LIME AWAY. They are clogged, corroded, & stuck due to mineral buildup! YUCK! Also, I know it cheaper to Not have carpeting, BUT, the rooms felt hollow, & unfriendly/uninviting without any carpets. At least you could put it in the living/bed areas. Plus, I'd have to think it would help cut down on the "Loud Floor Noises" for the downstairs units, for which there was a large memo posted on the refrigerator regarding. The Floral bedspreads & PLAID couch were no attractive. Please, get rid of the outside lights(rope lights) UP along the roof line b/c the LIGHT SHINING IN ALL AROUND THE CURTAINS AT NIGHT make the place feel like a Cheap Motel along I-95. I could not sleep! Maybe put the lights down lower, along the hand railing. The a/c sounded a bit like a lawnmower when it would kick on. Lots of little things just added up to disappointment. And, please, get rid of the Old, Torn, Rotten putt-putt golf 'carpeting'. It looks TERRIBLE. Just plant some real grass, and make flower beds! The Beach here is very nice, soft, wide and clean. That was Good! Overall, I think this place is best if you are Older, want quiet & very plain. I personally do not think it was worth the $$ paid. I have stayed on other Florida beaches w/beachfront balconies to overlook the pretty water & sand for less cost.
