My girlfriend and I stay at the Residence Inn on Treasure Island every year, and when it ended up being booked this year, we wanted to stay at another Residence Inn due to our wonderful experience. While the location is not the beachfront paradise were used too, the hotel was fantastic. Newly renovated rooms were clean with very nice appliances and furniture, and the staff was more than accommodating for anything we needed. It is also a big plus to have a good, hot, free breakfast every morning; convenient, and a great way to save some money while on vacation. Highly recommended stay at a great price very close to Clearwater Beach.
When I went to check in the location of the hotel there was a sign instructing me to go across the street to check in. After I figured out what I had to do, the experience was great. The room was very spacious and clean. The view to the canal was amazing and across the street you can go swimming in the gulf. Kitchen was fully stocked with kitchen utensil. I live in central Florida and will definantly come back on long weekends!

My fiancé and I were going for a long weekend, so we wanted to utilize the full 4 days. They graciously locked up our belongings the day we checked in while we were waiting for our room on the beach and after we checked out (also again we were on the beach). They called by cell when our room was ready. We were given a card to a taxi service who work off tips and a half off drinks at a local sports bar. There was always fresh complementary coffee, which was beneficial to me lol! The Grand Plaza is really a great place to stay!
Had a partial ocean view room, nice little private balcony. Only complaint on room was the bathroom light is all in one for the outside vanity area and the bathroom behind the door. When you don't want to wake anyone else in the room this is a slight annoyance. Otherwise perfect room with a mini fridge and basically all you need when staying on the beach! Within walking distance to many restaurants and shopping. Ate at Gondelier across the street, a couple times, it's hidden, but find it!! such a good deal, big menu, great prices and great desserts. Hotel had everything we needed, little beach, little pool, and Tiki Bar! Staff was friendly, no problems. IHOP attached, but we did not visit, however was always busy, a good sign!
