8/10 Very good

Unfortunately when we decided to stay at this hotel they were doing construction on the exterior. We woke up one morning to what sounded like jackhammering. There was no mention of this in the listing. Had we known about that we would not have stayed here. We did end up switching rooms to another building that was not being worked on and was quieter. However, that room was more expensive and had its own issues. The television did not work and the air conditioning also seemed insufficient. The room was very humid and there were actually water droplets that came from the A/C every time we turned it on. We’ve stayed at The Plunge before and have had good experiences. I’m not sure we will go back. The location is great and the staff is very friendly. However, for the price the rooms are sub-par.

Perfectly placed on beach with lovely warm pool.
Comfortable bed and room. The location is perfectly situated in quiet location within walking distance to more lively area. It is on the beach with an outstanding pool! Plunge has food offerings very reasonably priced. Convenient shopping center very close by, too. Suzette is amazingly helpful and we appreciate her kindness and exceptional attention to our comfort.

Under restoration currently.
I wish hotels. Com would have let me know the hotel was undergoing resurfacing on the outside walls of the buildings. They started hammering at 8 am! The main pool was closed a couple of days due to the construction. The staff was very kind and helpful though and did offer us another room. They also did not charge their $50/day resort fee because of the inconvenience. I would not stay here again.

Until the construction is complete would not go
The location was wonderful, the worst part of the trip was the hotel room. They put us in a handicap room that the entire bathroom flooded out when you took a shower, until I went down and asked for clean towels in the late afternoon no one had been near our room to make the bed or drop off towels.

Taking a Plunge at The Plunge
The Plunge Beach Resort Lauderdale by the sea is under construction and some of the best rooms are not available. There was No Valet parking anymore and thank God a excellent front desk man Keifer saved the day with quick action and put us on a ground floor patio room on the beach. Due COVID, no more live band performing at beach Bar area. It's not the same experience as before pandemic. We had a great time either way. It's still a fun enjoyable place with less amenities. The surrounding area is full of night life restaurants and things to do. Thank you Kiefer for assisting us in oder to having a great time.
