Great hotel for a good price. The hotel had a nice atmosphere and was small and cozy.. a bit close to the road and backing the car out in the road wasn't always easy. But overall a really nice place we would visit again if we go to the area again. Espen from Norway

We live in Mississippi and we believe that the most beautiful beaches in the U.S. are on the Gulf of Mexico beginning around Ft Walton Beach, Florida, continue around the panhandle and down through the tip of Florida. We would normally visit the beaches in the panhandle because they are closer to home, but in 2010, the year of our... More

We stayed here the week prior to July 4th in room 109. The room had a bedroom with door, small bathroom, living room, two TVs, and kitchen with a full-size refrigerator and microwave. It was also right across from the little laundromat. The first thing that struck us was the cleanliness and the view from this room. The room overlooked... More

Great stay... My kids loved to be able to go fishing in the morning and then head to the beach for the sand and waves. The hotel room was a great size and very clean. I loved that it had a full kitchen.

Wanda, Thank you for review of your last minute getaway at the Bay Palms. There aren’t many hotels that offer dockage for boats, kayaks and jet skis, so we are happy you found us on such short notice. We are also unique in being able to offer access to three hotels with varied amenities. I look forward to seeing you... More

Spending our holiday in Bay Palms Waterfront - started already relaxed, when the manager Robert, told us that our room had an upgrade - to a very spacy room with a kitchenette - living room and separate bedroom. This is our second time that we visited Bay Palms and again enjoyed it. The advantage is - near the beach, supermarkets... More

This old style Florida resort was recently smartly renovated and maintained extremely well. We stayed on the bay side and had manatees within 15 feet of our porch. Great getaway and priced right! We had a great time in St. Pete Beach and will certainly return.

My stay here was for 10 days. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The manager, Robert, is remarkably helpful when needed. Inga is an amazing Housekeeper and a hard worker. Her friendly smile and attitude makes your stay all the better!

We stayed at Bay Palms for one day and evening in early May, 2014. We had a wonderful stay and wished we had been able to stay longer. Bay Palms was very comfortable, cozy and felt like a personal beach house. We thoroughly enjoyed the bay side of the resort, especially being able to sit out on the marina and... More
