Hotel stay

When we arrived we were asked to stay the first night at the Bay Palms property across the road on the bay side. The room at that roperty was actually nicer and much newer than the room we moved to at the Plaza beach hotel the next day. The best part of the Plaza property is the proximity to the beach. House keeping did the very minimum every day even leaving dishes in the sink for multiple days and re-folding towels we left on the floor. It would have been a nicer stay if the room was cleaner and more up-to-date.

Recommend Snappers for their early bird specials daily from 4pm to 5pm. Everything was less than $13 per dish and very good. The special included a small sample size piece of key lime pie.

Close to ideal

The hotel location is perfect for a family looking to spend time on the beach and grab a boat cruise. Grocery, food, shops, and dolphin cruise are across the street. Hotel is on the beach. The facility is well maintained, neat and quiet. There are not many amenities other than a bar, small putt-putt course and chairs and some toys for preschoolers far inland on the beach. They do have a nice clean saltwater pool but call to see if they provide towels, it did not look like it. There is coffee in the main office but that is all, none is supplied in the room, no continental breakfast. Two washers and dryers are outside with one soda machine. The room had a kitchen and full bath but the ceiling in the bathroom was low so if you are tall (5' 10" ft or more) you will have a hard time getting your head wet in the shower. If you are on the second floor there is no elevator to use. The beach was outstanding - clear, warm water and soft white sand; stingrays swam among the people. Birds went about their business looking for food. The people on the beach were very respectful of the animals as well which made it that much more enjoyable. Shell Island was a great trip.

Minimize meal cost by purchasing your own food and keeping it in the room. There is a small kitchen with fridge, stove, microwave, pots, pans, toaster, plates, utensils, etc.

Exactly What We Wanted

We wanted to get away to a beautiful beach for a few days. We wanted a hotel on the beach, with a pool, and that would otherwise sort of get out of our way, if you will. We loved Plaza Beach Hotel! The pool is actually on the beach (my wife hates sand, I love it, so this was perfect). The staff was extremely friendly and helpful when we had questions. We spent as little time as possible in the room, but it did boast a king-sized bed, refrigerator, range, and sink. (Importantly, there was a wine bottle opener and a wine glass, so my cab and I could enjoy the sunset. My wife came, too.) My wife was impressed -- I actually booked this vacation, which doesn't ever happen. She said she would like to stay here again. I hope we do so soon!

There's a little French bakery beside Publix called Café Soleil. It had only been open a week when we were there. Everyone working there speaks French (and sounds as if it is their first language), and also happens to be extremely kind. The pastries are fantastic, as is the coffee.

Great 30th anniversary vacation

The location was perfect, right on the gulf beach. The suite was complete with plenty of room, a kitchenette, cable TV, king bed, nice bathroom, plenty of dresser space & storage, many windows, & a sliding glass door to our furnished patio on the gulf beach front. The pool was warm & spacious. Our gulf beach front view was excellent. Free beer & wine at happy hour every day. This hotel had a sister hotel across the street where you could get a fishing pole & fish the bay, if you please. The front desk, maintenance, & house-cleaning were very friendly & excellent at their jobs. We were there for one week & it was worth every dollar. Great Vacation!

Friendly staff

Room was updated and clean. Had a musty/mold smell. The maid gave us some lysol type spray,but couldn't get rid of the odor. The mattresses were old and needed replacement. The kitchenette was well stocked. Free "happy hour" with beer and wine was a nice way to meet the other guests. Free coffee in the mornings,and a free internet cafe were all very nice touches. Awesome location on the beach!

good but not a resort

Very friendly staff. Property description is a little misleading. This is not a hotel it's more like a motel. Definitely not a resort. Terrific beach location and the chairs and lounges on the beach were an excellent amenity. Nice heated pool. Stayed in a ground floor room and could hear people walking and talking from the room above. Would we stay here again, not sure.

Hidden gem on the beach

This little family owned hotel is a real gem. Our room was complete with a full kitchen, which I was not expecting. Everything was clean. The beach was literally steps away.
