Are you looking for a budget friendly hotel in Batumi? I can highly recommend one - Plaza hotel, located next to the Batumi bay.
Plaza Hotel is located close to Batumi Port and in very short distance from city center. We booked Plaza hotel using local Georgian coupon site - hotsale.ge and got a lovely room with balcony and access to the Olympic swimming pool for just 50 GEL per night (with breakfast included).
We stayed here for two nights at the start of March 2016.
It was already late night when we arrived to Batumi (with rail from Tbilisi) - and just shortly we checked in to our room I decided to make a lovely night photography - so I installed a tripod (on balcony) and got following night scenery from our room:

By now I felt super tired and went to sleep, next morning I repeated the same scene.

From here you can take Batumi aerial tram and enjoy even more spectacular views.
Floor plan at Plaza hotel
Plaza hotel is located in the upper floors in shopping mall. Well speaking of shopping here - nothing fancy or interesting here - some barber shops, iPhone store, cheap watches e.t.c. For the price they are offering stay at this hotel here - I would convert all building into a hotel - and it would rock. Why they have decided to run a small boutique stores in first floors - I have no idea, on the other hand - there were a lot of folks wandering to buy next generation iPhone or at least a cheap watches.
Simple but tasty breakfast at Plaza hotel
It was the same thing for two mornings - eggs, sausages, cottage cheese, tea, coffee, some flakes.. for additional 3 lari you can order a cappuccino, but it tastes the same as the free coffee. Regular stuff.

It featured a balcony, flat screen TV, a queen size bed, air conditioner and decent bathroom (shower)
