We just returned home and are hoping to come back next November! The weather is beautiful and we had such a relaxing time walking straight onto the beach from our room. Pool was warm. Service is wonderful and friendly. We had a great time playing all of the games with our kids aged 5-14. Shuffleboard, ping pong, cornhole, chess, mini golf and foos ball! Chick Fil A was across the street and so many bars and restaurants in walking distance Daily housekeeping is extra and this was an eco friendly resort which is a plus in our book. We had noisy neighbors one night but the staff was immediately responsive. Thanks for a wonderful weekend away from Jax!

Hotel's Favorite
When I travel I research for hours and hours to determine the best place to make memories with my family. I’ve been looking to stay at this property for years and I finally made it happen for Thanksgiving break. Absolutely wonderful property with even better people. Check in was welcoming and easy, policies and procedures were well explained. All employees were masking, even outdoors. Lobby is cozy and fun with fabulous retro music that can also be heard while playing jumbo connect 4, ping pong of Jenga right outside the lobby. Our room was ready earlier than expected, which is always a pleasant surprise. Our room was very clean, well-equipped and spacious. The pool area was inviting and never too busy to find open chairs. Loved the grill area, corn hole and shuffle board adjacent to the pool area. Publix is across the street, which was very convenient for us to spend time by the pool playing games and grilling out. Direct beach access is incredible. I spent every morning walking the beach, afternoons in the ocean and every night viewing the sunset. This beach is one of my absolute favorite places to be. It is clean, safe, no high rise buildings and not crowded. I loved this place so much that after staying 3 nights we visited family for Thanksgiving and I cancelled our other hotel reservation and returned to stay here for the remainder of our vacation. This is not only a place that is wonderful for families but it is also a place that I would feel completely comfortable returning to on my own for a wellness retreat. Lastly, I want to thank the staff. The hospitality is top notch. It was our pleasure meeting all of you! Sheldon was gracious and genuine. Austin was helpful and courteous. Thank you to Nika, Shane, Tyrell and Dan. This staff checks in on you to make sure your accommodations are satisfactory and will do whatever it takes to make certain guests have an amazing stay. I am looking forward to returning as soon as life’s responsibilities allow and I am hoping to make Plaza Beach my family’s vacation tradition for years to come. See you all soon!

Our stay started off with Terrell the desk clerk greeting us with an enthusiastic "Welcome Home!" as we entered the office. Sheldon gave us some great suggestions for where to eat and since we had missed the complementary happy hour by about 45 minutes they gave us each a glass of wine. Our room was large with a kitchenette and decorated with a mid century Florida theme. There was even a working payphone in the room along with an Amazon Echo! The resort itself was very family friendly and had play areas for toddlers and older kids. There was even a mini-golf course on the property. It was within easy walking of many restaurants and right on the beach. The beach was beautiful. My only complaint was the bed had some sort of topper on the mattress and was too soft and a little warm but that wasn't enough to stop me from wanting to return. We will definitely stay here again.

I was only able to stay for 1 day, but what a great place! It was clean, organized, peaceful in spite of being on a busy roadway. The staff were fun and wonderful. The room was spacious, clean, smelled nice. The pool was smallish, but I never use the pool. The waterside decks were excellent, offering a place to sit, lounge, and for some folks, fish. I am hard pressed to identify anything not perfect about this venue. I will say that many guests smoked, forcing me to relocate. But otherwise, all was good. Restaurants were within walking distance, or a short drive. The Gulf beach was beautiful, we had to cross the street to get to the beach, but that was not an issue. I highly recommend!

A very nice hotel run by a family. They are doing everything possible to make your stay enjoyable. The room was clean. It had a refrigerator, two comfortable beds, a nice bathroom and a safety deposit box. There is a happy hour with free drinks in the afternoon. Coffee is brewed in the morning in the lobby. The beach is very close to the hotel and, in my opinion, this is the best beach area in the entire island. The hotel management allowed us to stay and use their facilities and their beach towels all day when we checked out. I have been very impressed with this hotel and will definitely stay there again if traveling to St Pete Beach.
