Recent guest reviews

When I started to research this place about 7 months before my stay, I selected it for it's proximity to the Fort Lauderdale boat show, Beach and Cabana bar. I read the reviews from over the years and they weren't that great. After doing some research I found out it was under new ownership and in the middle of a total remodel. I called and spoke to a wonderful person by the name of Eileen. We had a great conversation and she assured me they are the new owners and it was being redone from top to bottom. Because she seemed so nice and it was in the location I needed to be I reserved the room. Price was right for the area. When I arrive the place was just what I expected and Eileen was there to greet me. All transactions were perfect and she was very helpful. The place was really nicely done. All fresh paint, Room was clean, bed was real comfortable and Bathroom was great. I stayed in room 304.Room wasn't perfectly quiet , but what hotel is? There isn't a view , but I wasn't in town for the view. The swimming pool was a bit small, but 100 yards away in the Atlantic Ocean. I'll be staying here again for sure

Very nice place. Good service and staff very friendly. It is in the beach area, but not that close to the beach (not walking distance, I guess... but just few minutes by car). It offers a small swimming pool.

I had second thoughts about booking this room because of the size, appearance, and the fact that I will not book a room if my wife is not %100 satisfied, but great things come in small packages and this place may be small, but it has an unmistakable pleasant personality. It was small, charming, clean, comfortable, friendly atmosphere, convenient, and reasonable. I didn't have to compete for parking, the biggest plus of all, IT WAS PET FRIENDLY! It was a HUGE change from the last room we had from it's competitor around the corner "Bahia Cabana", but that's a review for them. My wife fell in love with this room "literally" the second the door was opened and she had not walked in yet. She said it was clean, appealing, comfortable, and she kept looking around in awe the whole time we was there...THE WHOLE TIME! If at all possible, I will book this exact room everytime we come to Ft Lauderdale. AWE SOME JOB SEA BEACH PLAZA, and thanks for the positive experience!

Recently renovated, clean, up to date, great location at a reasonable rate. Staff super friendly. We had a suite, one bedroom. Plenty of room, full kitchen. Pool small but clean. Away from the crowds, right across from beach.

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.
