      Historical Traveler Reviews The Beach Plaza Hotel Miami Beach

      Adorable and Affordable

      from

      I booked a room at this hotel because the reviews for a hotel up the block were horrible! I am a frequent visitor to South Beach, and was looking for a hotel closer to downtown and the beach. The best deal I've had since the Roney Palace had an "under construction sale"!

      The Plaza is on the corner of 14th and Collins, right in the middle of all the action. Exactly one block from the beach, and close to all the spots on Ocean Ave. The decor was adorable and I fell in love instantly. My room was kinda small, but friends of ours had suites on the first floor that were wonderful! It's obviously been recently refurbished and remodeled; but if you can be modern and cosy at the same time, The Plaza accomplished both!

      The porch at the front of the hotel is great for my favorite Miami pasttime, people watching! Cute wicker chairs and benches, wait service from the bar in the lobby. Oh, and lets not forget about the garden! To make up for the fact it's one block south of being able to have direct beach access, there is a beautiful garden area that is even better at night. The service was fine, I'm easily placated. Much of the housekeeping staff didnt speak English, but you come to expect that in SB.

      The only issue I had was the fitness room was unavailable due to construction. I would have liked the workout because I pig out at the great restaurants in the area. Trust me, for a traveler on a budget this is a great deal!

      I already know where I'm staying next Carnival!

      Great Hotel

      from

      I thought this hotel was great. The rooms are nice and clean and the service is wonderful.

      You could do way Worse than the BPH!

      from

      Attention wives, girlfriends, random secret rendezvous women -- fear not the scary reviews of the BPH. As best I can tell, the negative observations of the hotel were unfounded.

      While the room is not palatial, it is comfortable enough for a 3-4 night stay. The high ceiling made it seem fairly roomy, the decor was pleasant, the bed was firm, the air conditioning worked well, and the bathroom was reasonably modern. The only legitimate complaint is that the water temperature was a bit erratic. The staff was quite helpful and they do try hard. The location is very convenient to the beach, local dining/drinking establishments and shopping at Lincoln Rd Mall.

      If you have modest expectations about your stay, you will no doubt walk away quite pleased.

      Gross

      from

      My mother and I stayed at this hotel through a vacation package and were immediately disappointed! The pictures online are NOTHING compared to this hole! The sheets were filthy, there was a huge brown stain on the ceiling, the tile was moldy, carpet SUPER dirty (I walked around in my shoes), and the shower left me feeling dirtier than when I stepped in. WE could hear the maids in the next room every morning and the noise outside was HORRIBLY loud! Please DO NOT STAY HERE! I was im Miami looking at modeling agencies, and this place just made me feel ucky and dirty. It was the longest 3 nights ever.

      Perfect Place to stay

      from

      Wow! What a great place. From the minute we walked in the door we were given great service! Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The hotel has been renovated so everything is really clean and beautiful. The hotel has a garden area for guests which is private and quiet. The location is also great. It's close enough to everything but far enough that you are not bothered by the noise. We would Definitely return to this hotel on our next trip to South Beach!

      Not too bad

      from

      I stayed at this hotel in November, yes my room was pretty shabb BUT the price was pretty good. Also the hotel was undergoing a renovation while I was there, perhaps it will improve.

      Great location, cheap, dirty, a place to crash

      from

      I have stayed at the Beach Plaza about 6 or 7 times. It is in the Heart of South Beach, a major plus. You can stay here for about $80 bucks a night in season, another major plus. That is where it ends. You do not want to bring your girlfriend or wife to this place because it is filthy and the front desk is not at all helpful or professional. If you are on a budget and with your guy buddies this is a great place to stay for cheap and not have to drive anywhere. You are a block from the beach and all that South Beach has to offer. I love the fact that you can get a $200. flight from Boston-Miami during Spring Break, and split a room with your pal for $40. each a night. The money you save you can spend on booze and food. Just remember do not bring your girlfriend or wife here, they will be miserable. So while the Hotel and staff are terrible, it does offer a really cheap price in season to stay in the heart of the South Beach action. I saw a person gave this place a five star rating. That has to be a mistake. Do not go here thinking this is even a 2 star, you will be sadly mistaken. That ranking is totally bogus. Remember, great location, cheap rates in season, filthy rooms and hotel, rude uninterested staff.

      Hidden Gem of a Hotel!

      from

      Down in Miami Beach is this cool hotel - great prices compared to the neighboring resorts, but just as clean and comfortable. Very friendly staff, and right across the street from an excellent restaurant. This is a place I will return to!

      Good location, but...

      from

      This hotel has a good location, but not much else

      going for it. They could not find our resevrations

      despite repeated advance calls and confirmations!

      Finally got a room towards the back of the hotel.

      Average to small room, but a terrible moldy or

      musty smell from the closet. How they could let that

      pass without fixing it is incomprehensible. Front

      desk staff generally indifferent and unhelpful, though this varied a bit depending on who was there at the time.

      Would not stay here again.

      (Note: above comments based on a stay in Feb. 2001)

      Nasty, stinking, dirty!

      from

      If you don't mind taking a shower in the hair and filth that

      the previous occupants left and sleeping on sheets that have not been changed since the dawn of time, this is the hotel for you! The room was small, there was only one bed and a cot, the doors were paper thin and the staff (when they could be found) was no help at all. If I was able to give scores in the negative range I would!! My stay here was the longest two nights of my life.

      ... game, the majority of the supporters were either Leeds or Northerners, so that made me and Lou feel right at home! The game was a bit of a wash out, but we met a couple from Scarborough who were a right laugh and they gave us a lift back to Miami Beach in their convertable Mustang and had a few more beers on Ocean Drive!!!

      The next day we were up early to catch the Mega Bus to Tampa, which would be our last stop in America before flying to Brazil!!!

      ... looked at the wall art and graffiti. We hanged at the beach. We had beers. Just went with the flow really. The weather the whole 4 days I was there was bloody hot. And humid. And the ocean was warm so you couldn't get any relief from that. The things I did most in Miami: - drink - eat - explore - shop - relaxed - meet some amazing people - swim - sun bake - sleep It's been great to have some people ...

      ... the store was an awesome guy and he was from Israel and Limor had lived in Israel previously so they hit it off. He was a great guy who gave us a lot of tips of what to do while we are. I've seemed to find one of these people most places I have gone, who say's American's are rude and arrogant?

      For our second day, we went back to the beach again. Needless to say, I had gotten very dark by this point. This night we also headed out a bar. The hostel ...
