We stayed 2 nights as a last minute idea and it was a great location. The staff was very friendly and they have a beer/wine/mixed drink bar at the pool/beach. Typical 60's era hotel with some modern touches. Worth the price paid.
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!

Wow! This place is amazing!! It was so much bigger and had so much more to offer than we were expecting! I wish I knew about this place when my kids were a little younger. (They are 12 & 9).
This resort has EVERYTHING you can imagine. Life size chess, mini golf, HUGE blow up water slides, best beach, pools, restaurants... I wish I planned our entire trip here.
We flew into Tampa. Wanted to spend one day on the beach before heading to Orlando. Again, I wish we would have stayed here for our entire trip.
Next vacation - that's exactly what we are going to do.
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!
"Wonderful hotel close to the beach and everything!"
This resort had everything this beach lover needed. Comfortable, clean rooms, great pool, excellent spa, yummy food, (and drinks) extremely nice staff. I will definitely go back, and recommend to all my friends.
"Nice hotel, right across the street from beach !"
We have family close by, so we are in the area usually once a year. We have now stayed here 3 times and have already booked a 4th. Updated hotel, friendly staff, across the street from the Treasure Island Public Beach. Also has a boat dock in the back, which worked out great for us as our family was able to pick us up in their boat !
My friends and I had a wonderful time, enjoyed the ambience - wonderful food,spa and pool.
Everyone was so nice and helpful. Special thanks to the women guard at the Klosterman gate
who made sure we would not get lost.
