My husband & I had to switch hotels after we were in St. Pete Beach. I had stayed at the Bay Palms one month prior, & really enjoyed the area. I called them to see if they had rooms available, since it was spring break everything was booked. I spoke with Brenna, she was incredibly helpful and found us a... More

We were looking for a place close to St. Pete Beach that would let us have our dog as we couldn't leave her for a month. Have come to this area for over 20 years for Spring Break. When I found the Bay Palms I had no idea it would exceed our expectations - but it did. Sometimes websites don't... More

Nice, quiet and clean. We were in efficiency apt, Bay Palms, room 104, pet friendly room. The room was of good size with a separate bedroom and living room with TV in each room. Nice view of pool and waterway. Staff and housekeeping were helpful and friendly. Did not feel like we were close to the road at all as... More

We've vacationed at Bay Palms resort every February now for 5 years, and always have a wonderful stay! The staff is friendly and accommodating, our room is clean, and we love relaxing on the large deck and enjoying the view of the bay. There's a ton of things to do within walking distance, and we're just across the street from... More

We stayed in the two bedroom suite which was perfect for 3 adults and one 10 year old. The hotel was exactly as shown on their website. Clean, bright, well equipped and beautiful. Resort staff was friendly and helpful with my internet problems. Saw fish in the bay that we have never seen in my 40 plus years of visiting... More

We visited the Bay Palms in mid March 2015. This place was exactly what we were looking for! Quiet, close to everything and clean. They are eco friendly and provide so many amenities. We stayed on the bayside which was more for couples and there was no children around. There were grilling stations and fishing piers. The pool was small... More

The Bay Palms, located on Boca Ciega Bay, is a nice, quiet, comfortable resort. The huge boat/fishing/relaxation dock is a wonderful area to play cards, fish,sun yourself, socialize and picnic. Yes, there is a charcoal grill right on the dock along with a picnic table. The different sized rooms are always clean and comfortable. We saw dolphins most every day... More

We discovered this hotel purely by accident whilst driving through St. Pete's Beach. The boutique hotel was immaculate throughout. Much thought had been given to the furnishings and the facilities provided, which included a refrigerator, coffee making facilities and even a toaster! The receptionist, located at the sister hotel - Plaza Beach Hotel - was very helpful and gave us... More

We loved our stay at the Bay Palms. We had a lovely room on the bay, very quiet and very clean. We had our own little balcony where we could sit and watch the dolphins. There is a very large outdoor deck on the bay with BBQ grills and all amenities, we didn't have time to use them as we... More

My boyfriend and I stayed from late Feb-early March for a week. We were hoping to miss the spring break crowd, and I feel we were successful. We had a small suite room that was perfect for just a week there. Sliding glass doors opened out to our patio that overlooked the dock area. We we ate many meals out... More
