We stayed 9 days total at the 3 resorts connected with Bay Palms. The Gulf side property is busier, but has lots of Adirondack chairs on the beach. Unlike other hotels in this town, they don't charge you to sit in the chairs. Nice pool. We moved (due to noise from upstairs guests) from the Gulf side to the Bay... More

We had a 10 day stay at Bay Palms in February. Staff was friendly, accommodation was clean and quiet. Just a short walk to the beach and we enjoyed the view on the river as well. Because this is not a large complex made it more relaxing as there were no crowds around. We would definitely stay here again.

My wife, toddler, and I took a vacation in January and decided to stay at this hotel given the excellent reviews. It was located very close to the beach and within easy access to the sister hotel which has the beach off the back. My wife, baby, and I loved spending time on that beach. We were given an upgrade...

A must go to hotel. They were so nice and it was a great hotel clean and close to the beach. It is a total of 3 hotels. The beach is a bit louder but is right in the beach. The bay palms and Bayview are a bit quieter but is across the street from the beach. The rooms have... More

I absolutely Love this place! However, it's not fair to review just the Bay Palms. This resort is actually made up of 3 different properties, Bay Palms, Bayview Plaza and Plaza Beach Resorts. I'm going to review all of them at once because of their close proximity to each other and the fact that a stay at any single one... More

We had a very enjoyable stay while in St. Pete's beach! We stayed mainly across the street at their main resort, right on the gulf beach. We were very very satisfied with everything! The staff was so very pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean and tidy. Everything we needed was there. And so nice to walk out your door... More

Ameika, Thank you for your review. You received a complimentary upgrade to a spacious One Bedroom Suite rather than the standard efficiency that you booked, based on dozens of calls into our front desk on several occasions after booking, cancelling and rebooking. Your first impression was correct - our rooms are all brand new and very clean. I apologize if... More

We only stayed here one night while looking for homes in the area, we wished we'd had more time to explore the marina and the beaches at the sister property down the street. This is a small hotel right on a busy main thoroughfare, but you'd never know it from the room or the marina behind the hotel. Our room... More
