Awesome getaway

We loved it. It was awesome to walk right out of the hotel and on to the beach. Having several restaurants/bar within the hotel made it so we didn't have to do anything but lounge and relax!

If you have nothing but time to wait this hotel is for you

This is a well worn beach vacation hotel on a lovely stretch of St Pete a Beach. Check in was one of the slowest I have ever experienced as a seasoned world traveller. We arrived at 1pm and were told by the front desk staff to give them out cell phone number and that they would call us when our ocean view suite was ready. It was after 4:15 when we got our room key. We loved the balcony overlooking the beach in our room but the rest of the amenities were not great for the $ we spent. The sheets on the beds were like burlap and the beds were old. We could not get into the pool area even once during our stay as there were only a dozen chaise lounges and the pool was very small with no hot tub. The beach bar had live music everyday which was nice but it was crowded and the floors were nasty and swampy. The elevators in the hotels were not air conditioned apparently and it was very unpleasant riding to our room on the upper floor. Spinners restaurant had an awesome view but was extremely pricey. Reservations recommended for dinner. Housekeeping at this hotel was done only if you called for cleaning repeatedly. I had to take my own garbage out one day since the maid did not show up and the trash receptacles in our room were full. Recommend staying elsewhere if you have high expectations for service. This is an ok family beach hotel especially if you are not picky. Good location on beach if you have little ones

comfortable mini vacation

Though a bit dated, Grand Plaza Beachfront strives for excelence. Its staff is phenomenal. Anything I needed they got for me. Hotel has averything one may need for a vacation: comfortable rooms, three on-site restaurants, beach towels on request. All in all a very pleasant stay.

Getaway

The room was very nice and staff was efficient and friendly. The pool was rather small for the size of the resort. Everything you need is within walking distance.

Long weekend with lady friend!

The hotel was just what we were looking for great rooftop restaurant and right on beach. Beach Bar was a little pricey rooms not large but had a great balcony. I'd definitely recommend and will visit again if in St. Pete Beach!
