After a horrible experience trying to get a refund from the place I booked in Siesta Key (couldn’t go there due to red tide,) I literally booked Plaza Beach one day before our flight left for Orlando. I was so relieved to have an alternate place to go, yet not quite sure what to expect given such a low price. Wow, was I pleasantly surprised!!!!

In an effort to be real, the only two “negatives” I could list would be the bathroom being a little small (no control over that) and two days they forgot to bring us new towels (even though we left the dirty ones where were instructed to.) But I called the office and within second had all the towels and washcloths I needed! They were extremely prompt and apologetic both times (which is so much better than feeling like you’re being a bother when you call and ask.) Other than that, you can’t beat the price and the location!

We (my teen daughter and I) stayed in a Superior Gulf View Suite and each had our own queen beds which were EXTREMELY comfortable. Neither one of us had any issues falling to sleep or staying asleep. Having a refrigerator and microwave and stovetop was such a blessing as we didn’t have to go far to prepare meals for the beach. You could literally walk back to your room and eat lunch and head right back to the beach and be on the sand in seconds. And the view from the balcony of the Gulf sunsets were incredible. Couldn’t ask for more being on the side of the hotel.

The pool was phenomenal being two steps from the sand. A gorgeous view and we spent many hours swimming and chatting with other families staying at the Plaza. Everyone we met was so nice and definitely enhanced our stay. My daughter loved the human-sized chess game and the Adirondack chairs on the beach to watch the sunsets were perfect!

The staff was fantastic. Lily got us checked in (we arrived later at night from our weekend in Universal Orlando) and made sure we were all set in our room and was so sweet. And paying in cash allowed me to save money as well with their cash discount - every penny counts! Erick was always helpful when we needed towels and they even helped us to get my daughter’s pool float blown up. Can’t say enough good things about the office staff.

We were located within walking distance of many things and took advantage of all St. Pete had to offer. Plenty of parking and having a Publix and Dollar Store directly across the street was a HUGE bonus. Got everything we needed right there.

I’d highly recommend the Plaza Beach Hotel for anyone looking for a great stay on St. Pete beach. We hope to be back!

Upon reviewing about 10 different properties, we selected this one because it offered the most amenities we were looking for. The main thing was the pool and beach access. We didn’t know it came with amazing staff, comfortable rooms, happy hour in the conference room daily with foosball table, tiki bar, all-around great atmosphere. This is definitely our go to place from now on!

We stayed at plaza beach hotel with our 2 kids 4years old and 2 years old. We all had a wonderful stress free time. The resort is convinient for families with kids, you don’t have to walk a lot to get to the beach or pool. You just have to get out of the room and you’re right at the pool, and when you get tired of the pool the beach is a step away. The little kitchen and refrigerator was super helpful to store and cook food for the little ones. The resort is located close to the grocery store and a lot of restaurants. We went to Clearwater beach one day and when we came back to plaza beach hotel we were glad that we are staying in a nice quiet hotel. If you want peaceful and quiet vacation this resort is a place to stay. We will be back at this resort next year.

We live in Sarasota, but we often get up to St. Pete beach to get a night away from our 3 kids. This was our first stay at the Plaza and I can’t express enough how great the manager/owner Rob and his staff are. The were very helpful and personal. We won’t hesitate to stay there again.

Our first time at the resort, last minute booking for two rooms was very satisfied. Already booked for February return. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. The beach was perfect and beautiful. You have new customers at your resort.

Room Tip: rooms downstairs on the pool side has no tables out front of there room for smoking chairs only.
