Sea Beach Plaza

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Rooms have been recently renovated. It is nice that they have a fridge and microwave in the room. However, it is evident that some guests are long stays. Noise in the rooms and music playing loudly. Not the type of relaxation that we expected for our honeymoon. Location is really good. Pool is small and did not looked clean. Very few chairs available for the pool area.

Great little place to stay. Best kept secret. Everything is clean. Under renovation however Staff super friendly! Would stay here again. Bed was super soft. Couldn't hear people outside swimming or concert visitors while inside room

Don't let the negative reviews fool you. Most of those are from people who stayed in a room prior to it's renovation. This is a very nice, clean, somewhat charming continuing to be updated hotel that is very reasonable priced for the area, very close to water taxi pickup, restaurants, quick shop, and they can arrange for a shuttle to the cruise ship terminal at very reasonable rates. Four of us, two couples, strayed on April 1, 2017 and we all came away raving about what a real bargain this was. The lady at the front desk who has been there over five years starting with the previous owner stayed on because of what the new owners said they were going to be doing to improve the hotel. I only hope their rates don't skyrocket with the improvements.

We had a weekend stay and decided to stay here because of the low price and proximity the beach. From looking at previous reviews, I would have never booked this. After coming in late we decided to take the chance since we would be out of the room most of the time, we would only need a place to sleep. The hotel has been under new ownership for about a year and have done an amazing job transforming this place. The decor was cute, the rooms were very clean, and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. There is still a bit of construction going on but not very intrusive. If you want to be near the beach and great restaurants without the steep price, I recommend this place.

We stayed a couple of nights before heading out on a cruise. Great location if you're sailing out of Port Everglades but have a day to spend in Florida. It's a short walk to the beach and restaurants. The rooms were clean and spacious. The pool is small but so is the hotel so it wasn't crowded. They were in the process of painting when we were there and it looked liked the room had been recently redone.

We grabbed a cab from the airport and headed to our room at the Sea Beach Plaza. When we arrived, we saw a lot of workers and renovating going on, however this was not a problem for us at all. We were given a clean, plain, but very nice room on the 3rd floor. Room had a coffee pot, microwave, and (full-size) refrigerator. We walked to the nearby Bahia Cabana Restaurant for dinner and back for breakfast the next morning. After dinner, we walked a bit further down the road to buy our "carry on" wine for the cruise. Comfortable bed, free Wifi, and very nice staff at this hotel. They helped us arrange our transportation to the cruise port. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

I was a little hesitant to book here given some of the previous reviews. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find a charming little hotel/motel in an excellent location at a reasonable price. While renovations are still underway, the room we stayed in was spacious and clean. Tiled floor, convenient microwave, fridge and coffee maker, and pool towels were a nice added touch. Only negative was the mattress on one bed needed to be replaced - a significant dip was hard to stay out of when sleeping! The hotel is very close to the beach (less than 5 minute walk). Walgreen's and Starbucks are a short bus ride away (even within walking distance depending how far you like to walk - about 1/2 hour each way). The front desk lady was very pleasant and helpful and recommended a shuttle service (FLL CityVan) which took us to/from the airport & cruise port. We didn't care for the closest restaurant (Bahia Cabana - noisy, slow service & drinks tasted strange), but there are lots of other options a bit further along the beach. Would stay here again any time, but will try to avoid coming in March next time - hotel prices were insane!

Sea Beach Plaza is in a convenient location. It's less than a mile from all the restaurants and bars and a block from the beach. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are all completely renovated and have full amenities. I would definitely stay here again.

Checked in on Saturday afternoon to enjoy the beach before leaving on a cruise. The room was very plain but clean. It was a kitchenette which was basically a fridge, dish sink, and hot plate. There was absolutely no artwork or decorative design.(Maybe so not to distract from the plain white walls?) The bed was comfortable and there was very little street noise. The room looked out over the itty bitty pool. Apparently the place is being renovated because it's totally bland and without personality and needs updates. My one gripe would be that several slats on the wooded blinds were broken.

Upon arriving the the hotel for check-in I was a bit worried. The exterior was a bit rough. I am glad that I didn't let that deter us from checking in. We booked for only one night to hold us over before departing on our cruise. The lady at check-in was nice and helpful. We asked for a restaurant and she referred us to one that was within walking distance. We stayed in room 312, which was on the 3rd floor. The room was very clean. It's obvious that at one point in time this place had been neglected but it appears that they are working on that. Our room was equipped with a fridge, coffee pot, microvar, sink, silverware and even a nice table and chairs. the bathroom had a step up that you needed to acknowledge to avoid an accident. The only thing that needed attention was the door to the room. There was a small gap that I placed a hand towel in to avoid anything from getting in. Overall its a great deal! I agree that it's a gem in the rough.
