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.

The Mad Fish restaurant for an early bird dinner was excellent for both price and quality. It was just a very short walk north.

Christmas family getaway

There were five of us, the room was very spacious and clean! Staff was very friendly and helpful. We all loved it, walking distance to stores, restaurants and most importantly right on the beach.

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.

Go some place else. You'll be happier

The positives about Plaza Beach: location and the room set-up. The negatives: the amenities are nonexistent. Old worn out bath towels, not beach towels, are available for use on the beach. You have to pay for renting a lounger, an umbrella or anything else that would usually come standard on the beach. The pool area is HORRIBLE. There was a little bar where NO ONE ever worked. There are clear rules posted about food, kids, floats, jumping in the water, etc... and EVERY DAY there were unaccompanied SCREAMING kids at the pool with their floats in the pool. They made a mess everyday; leaving their belongings all over the place. I went to the front desk several times to complain and NOTHING was done. I was told that an employee of the hotel comes around and checks the pool area all the time. That was a lie because I did not see one person, ever come around and check. Several of the other guests were complaining as well. The BBQ area is also a joke. There's no charcoal or any amenities in order to use the BBQ grill. I even contemplated getting charcoal so I lifted the lid of the grill and I was grossed out at how dirty it was. The lobby and the common area was a mess with boxes and junk. There was a tracker trailer parked outside the lobby for a good part of our stay. It looked trashy. Their "happy hour" consisted of a hand full of people crowded around a gallon bottle of wine from 4-5 in this "conference room" which just looked like a storage area for more junk. Our rooms weren't cleaned until very late in the day. We would come back from the beach sometimes at 4:30 and the rooms still wouldn't be cleaned. We asked repeatedly about getting an early clean up but nothing changed and everyday we'd have to leave the room so the maid could do a poor to mediocre job. PS the sheets were too small for the bed and the maid didn't know how to properly make the bed. The only reason the room is a positive is simply because it's relatively modern and somewhat spacious. We asked for an extra key and we were told we had to give a $10 deposit. The website and the video about these resorts are completely misleading. We asked about the fitness room that suppose to be available to us. We were told it was located at the Bayview hotel, their sister resort. We walked over there and it was a BIGGER dump than Plaza Beach. NO ONE works there. There was a sign on the lobby door saying you need to check in at Plaza Beach and... the fitness room which consisted of a treadmill from the 80s and a universal machine from the 70s was locked. It was atrocious. Don't let the smoke and mirrors of any testimonial, website pictures or brochures tell you this place is worth it. Walk up and down the beach and check out all the other great properties there. Their room rates might be a little higher than Plaza Beach but trust me, it's worth it.

Great beach getaway

Our overall experience was great; However, there are a few things that would have made our time better- the beds were not comfortable at all and we were constantly having to ask for clean towels, most days room service didn't get to our room until after 2:00 in the afternoon. The location was awesome, we were right on the beach, and the staff was super friendly.
