We booked this hotel instead of Guy Harvey-where we used to stay- after Guy Harvey raised their prices. The location right on the beach was fantastic. Also near the grocery store. Check-in was a breeze and the employees at the desk were very helpful with dining recommendations. Lots of seats near the pool, both in the sun and in the shade. We definitely preferred the intimate feeling of this small hotel compared to the bigger resorts in the area. We'll be back!

Thanks so much for a great FIVE STAR review of your stay at the Plaza Beach Hotel – Beachfront Resort and for sharing your photos. Our boutique resorts offer a tremendous value versus the big resorts in the area such as offering free parking, no resort fees, free wifi, free social hour and so much more. Here we treat our guests like family and we can’t wait to see you back here again!

This is a wonderful family owned resort. We spend a week there in June with friends. Have previously stayed at bigger hotels for more money. This is a great get away spot with great views, nice pool and friendly people.

Room Tip: All rooms were clean and spacious.

When booking our vacation, we were looking for a nice, family-owned, resort that we could call "home" for a week. WE FOUND it with Plaza Beach Hotel. Nice small "motel/hotel" style resort with clean rooms and very attentive, friendly staff. The pool was right on the beach! Beautiful views of the water from almost every room. Hospitality hour every day for adults in the entertainment room. The owners were always nearby at either of the two hotels. If you're looking for a locally owned, friendly place to be, this is it.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room

We were sold a room with 2 queen beds via Expedia. Upon our arrival we were provided a room with 2 full beds - might work for some, but not for us (6'5" hubby and 5'4" 9 yr old - and myself and our 3 yr old ;) The room did not have great lighting which made it feel smaller. Felt I had made the wrong decision to choose this property. Went to the front desk and inquired whether they even had a queen bed (or king) on the property and if it might be possible to move us if this were the case - we were prepared to leave to find better accommodations if they did not. It took a little digging, and of course extra money, but we ended up with one of their 4 beach front suites that had a king bed w/sofa bed. Needless to say, my husband was quite relieved, as was I. This room had much more light and a patio next to the poo/facing the beach.

Service was good by all staff, my kiddos loved the large chess game, the pool and all the fun toys they had available for the beach - nice touch!

Would only stay here again in one of the four end suites.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I’m glad you were able to enjoy our games and other fun amenities. I do apologize that you were not satisfied with the beds in your original room. We always encourage everyone to book directly with the hotel rather than the online travel sites. When you book directly, you are speaking with someone actually on property that knows the rooms in and out, and will work hard to ensure you are reserving a room that will work for your family. I’m happy to hear that our front desk was able to get you into one of our exclusive Gulf Front with Balcony Suites, which are not available on any third party site. I hope to see you here again soon.

I can't say enough about this family owned fantastic hideaway on the beach. We were there for the birth of my first great-grandchild. Perfect location to spend time on the beach. Hotel was just a few hundred yards from the white, gorgeous beach. Lovely colorful beach chairs and other beach lounges. My room was spacious with a full kitchen. Even though the parking lot was being paved there was no inconvenience. Staff was the best I've ever encountered. A special shout out to Mariah, who checked us in. She and all the other staff treated us like family and went out of their way to make a wonderful vacation for us. I feel like I have found a special gem of a hotel to return again and again each time I visit St. Pete!! I wouldn't stay anywhere else. It doesn't get any better than This for the money. I met another guest that was back for their 23rd visit. This should tell you all you need to know. They were making upgrades to an already wonderful place without any inconvenience. By the next visit I'm sure they will have the new beds in and probably some newer sheets. It was probably one of the nicest experiences ever on the beach!! I highly recommend Plaza Beach. A very pleasant surprise in so much attention to detail. Loved the wine hour where everyone gathered for a free glass of wine or beer and free coffee in the morning. Looking forward to going back. There housekeeping department was the best ever!! We were treated like kings and queens!!

Room Tip: The best area I think was the side that had the bamboo huts. Little more private than the parking lo...

This is actually the third time we have stayed here at Plaza Beach on the Gulf. Every room has a small kitchenette so you can be economical and buy groceries and cook, but there are many restaurants within walking distance. Awesome views of the Gulf - walk out of your room and the beautiful sandy beach is just a few steps away - gorgeous sunsets! The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and accommodating.
Great place, great people, great value!!!
We intend to make a visit yearly :)

We are locals and this was a nice find for a quick Staycation.
Tami checked us in and out, she was very polite and helpful.
The room was newly remodeled. If you are looking for a view-spring the extra dollars for the Gulf Front room. Otherwise opt for the south facing rooms.
The walls are pretty thin but you don't really need to spend much time in the room so...
There are many nice touches in the room and the office offers freem coffee in the morning and they have a free social hour with beer and wine in the evening.
Nice little find!

Room Tip: Go for the Gulf front, they have balconies which would make it quite a different trip altogether
