Great spot. Clean, friendly staff, easy on the wallet. The full kitchen was a huge bonus as it helped us save $100's plus. Although we weren't on the ocean, the fish and wildlife of the inter coastal were fun to watch. Thank you very much.

Neil, Thank you for an excellent Five Star review of your stay at the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort - Hotel and Marina. Our full kitchens definitely help cut down on costs that you can use for other fun things during your trip. It's very common to see dolphins and manatees playing in the bay, and very exciting to watch. I... More

Very nice family owned property. Quite and clean. My wife and I travel a lot and this place exceeded our expectations. We would stay again and would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends. The staff was especially nice, Brenna helped us on the phone during the planning phase, as well when we got there. Her attention to detail... More

The location and quality was fabulous. This hotel met all expectations and then some. The rooms were clean and the it was an extremely quiet setting. It was also nice to have access to the beach from a partner hotel. I will definitely be staying at this resort again. I grew up in the SPB area, but had never needed... More

We opted for the "canal" property of Bay Palms Resort, as opposed to the gulf resort as we were on a budget. Although one books in the Bay Palm, one is allowed to use the amenities at the Beach Plaza; pool, corn hole, shuffleboard, beach access. The Bay Palms also has a pool. The suite was spacious. We had a... More

I loved the quiet of the Bay Palms. The room was clean and provided everything I needed. I really didn't mind the short walk up the street to hang out at the beach. The staff was friendly and accomodating. I would definately stay here agin on my next trip to Florida!

Decided to pack up from Winter Garden, FL and get way for the weekend. Wanted a little further than an hour away. We picked this hotel on a wilm and was very happy. Stayed at this one instead the one on the beach for less because we rather spend on nice dinners and breakfast mimosas. Free beer and wine from... More

I would not call this a hotel resort. It is more like a motel because it is small and lacks supervision. You have to go block north to sister hotel for help. It tries to make up for this false advertising by keeping the rooms very neat and clean and with basic accommodations.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are in fact a boutique resort, which means we are small by design and offer all of the amenities as a large resort, but with privacy and personal service. We have staff on site daily, though our full service office is located at our beachfront property across the street.... More

Even though we made reservations through a third party, and thinking we were right on the beach, it turned out that we were across the street through no fault of the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort. Jackie, the front desk clerk did everything she could to make our stay comfortable and pleasant and have us come back again. The kitchenette type... More

Our second year in a row to this Motel. As good as ever, great location, friendly staff and relaxing outlook. Ideal for families or couples. Opposite the beach and near nice restaurants some on the beaches. Good for the fishing and wildlife enthusiast. Most days visible are dolphins, manatees, stingrays and much more. The rooms are clean and have everything... More

It was my first time in St Pete and it was definitely perfect! The hotel services are great, big rooms with kitchennete and living room. The plaza beach that is the other hotel location is really near and got direct access to the beautiful beach, people from the hotel is really nice and always available. Totally recommended!
