The little resort was great! Friendly and accommodating staff. Cute room with everything you can think of. Warm beautiful pool. Beachfront with chairs and hammock. Would definitely stay here again!!! Locals even raved about it over fancy hotels!

Amy,

Thank you so much for a Five Star review of the Plaza Beach Hotel – Beachfront Resort. Our new chairs and beachfront hammocks have been a great addition that all of our guests seem to enjoy very much. We offer comforts of home, personal service, updated rooms and so much more, which you don’t always find at “fancy” hotels and at a much lower price. I hope you are able to come down for another visit soon!

Clean, clean, clean. One of the best hotels I've been to. Family owned means family pride. Well kept and well appointed resort is fun, friendly and relaxing. It is as if you have the entire beachfront to yourselves. The convenience of this spot over the larger hotels is unmatched. Hail to the mom and pop, family run business. May they carry on forever! We will be back as often as we can! What a find!

I travel frequently for business and generally stay at nationally recognized hotel chains. I generally avoid motels, because of safety concerns/myths. I was highly skeptical when the online hotel bidding site awarded us the Plaza Beach Resort, but was somewhat relieved with the numerous positive reviews. Fortunately, I can affirm the positive reviews. If you're looking for a chain hotel, then buy it and pay the higher prices. Plaza Beach has a lot to offer. The best asset is that it is located on the beach. You are a few steps away from the beach. The rooms were clean and spacious. The beds weren't great, but I understand that they'll be replaced in December. The wifi was fast and stable. The kitchenette was great for light and easy cooking. The bathrooms were small, but adequate. The rooms are quiet and couldn't hear the neighbors. The air conditioner continually ran and provided a white noise vs the ones that noisily turn on intermittently. I liked the happy hour (free beer and wine), but would recommend a venue change (maybe next to the pool vs confined in a small room). I enjoyed the outdoor amenities (corn hole, mini golf, pool). All-in-all, we enjoyed our stay at Plaza Beach and would have no problems returning.

Thank you for an awesome Five Star review of your stay at the Plaza Beach Hotel – Beachfront Resort! Many travelers who gravitate toward chain hotels don’t realize the charm and personal service offered at smaller family-owned resorts like ours. I’m pleased that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again.

We enjoyed our visit - things couldn't have been better! The location was ideal for our needs, the room was very comfortable and well equiped, and every staff member we met was very friendly! Our experience was so pleasant that the only way it could have been enhanced was if we had more time to stay or (as always!) if the price could have been cheaper.

First, if you are considering this motel, I would reconsider a room upgrade, the gulf view, is more of a street view. The "family atmosphere" is questionable for younger children, many people were smoking in all the common areas. For a non-smoker, it would not be comfortable in the common areas such as the grill area.
There were many little ants in the bathroom & kitchenette - we needed to keep our toothbrushes packed up (out of the bathroom) or in the refrigerator. There was sugar left in cabinet, by another guest and was filled with tiny ants. The floors were so dirty that we needed to were sandles inside the room, and/or wash off our feet before going into bed.
The positives: The place seemed safe, people were friendly, the staff is very pleasant, the beach is beautiful, the pool is nice, clean, and there were balls, frisbees, boogie boards and mini golf for kids. The kitchen refrigerator and kichenette was very clean on arrival. The location is very good, short walk/drive to restaurants, Publix, a short walk on the beach to an outside restaurant/tiki bar, or to rent paddle boards.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and for noting that our resort is safe, friendly, clean, and in a good location. I have to apologize for the miscues with housekeeping. As you mentioned, our rooms are very clean and just missing one small item can lead to other inconveniences. I will reiterate procedures with our housekeeping department. Our Superior Gulf View Suites offer a partial, angled view. For a direct view, I would suggest our Gulf Front with Balcony Suites. I encourage you to give us another try if you visit the area in the future.

I have stayed at the Plaza Beach Resort several times and it is my preferred hotel when in the St. Pete Beach area. With the room upgrades now complete, it really represents an exceptional value for such a desireable location; beachfront!!! What really impresses me the most about the property is how much everyone that works at this family owned & run business really cares about it and the guests. The hotel grounds are always kept immaculate and any special requests are quickly addressed. I also agree with another reviewer's comment that the hotel promotes a "community" feel; it feels just like home to me (well, with a beach, that is). If you are planning a trip to the area, give the Plaza Beach Hotel a try, you won't regret it, I'm going back in a few weeks :)
