Rooms were dirty when we checked in with floors that had not been cleaned at all. Sand was everywhere. We also did not receive housekeeping for two nights we were there. They would simply ask if we needed more towels. Not well managed. Also, the decor has not been updated in decades. Their food was okay. Although it is a...

My wife and I stayed here the night of Jan. 2nd. We had been on a cruise and decided to spend some more time in the area before returning home. We stayed at the Grand Plaza after reading reviews here on trip advisor. The Grand Plaza is an older hotel by some standards but no older than most hotels in...

I've stayed here many times before. Each and every time the staff and rooms have been on point. Today is no exception. Michelle checked us in and was kind, helpful, and welcoming in such a way that once again reinforced my belief that this is by far the best hotel in St. Pete beach and will stay no where else...

Whilst there are good things about this hotel (the staff in the breakfast restaurant were lovely, as was Sarah on the front desk), there is no way that I would recommend this hotel to families. We were staying here over New Years and the hotel allowed the people in room next door to us to have a party in their...

Our group had 6 rooms and we stayed through New Year's Eve and Day. We dined at Bongo's, Spinners and the Palm Room - the service and the food quality was top notch. Very good value. Clean rooms. Very friendly staff. Excellent location with beautiful views. Specific kudos to Sarah at the front desk and Frankie at Bongo's who each...

After a long day at the beach it was a pleasure to go back to the resort order a "boat drink" and relax on an outside couch while listening to some fresh tunes! Chase Smith, the one man band of the night, played an excellent selection from bluegrass to hip hop! Good job on getting quality musicians! Looking forward to...
