We have stayed at the Bay Palms many times. They are pet friendly, so we always bring our 2 cats with us. The rooms are very spacious and clean, and the kitchen has everything you need to make meals in your room. The pool is really nice, very clean, and has a wonderful view of the bay. We have seen...

If you're looking for a calm, relaxing vacation this the place. Our room was super clean, everyone is friendly, everything you need is right there. We loved it so much we rebooked for next year and we had already decided to go someplace other than Florida next year. Everyone was very nice but we had the pleasure of dealing with... More

Bev, Thank you for an excellent Five Star review of your most recent trip to the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort – Hotel and Marina.

My sister and I stayed here for a girls weekend. The property wasn't fancy but met our needs perfectly. We enjoyed the bay view behind the property where we saw manta rays and a variety of fish. The pool was fine, again - nothing fancy- but effective. Easy walk across the street to public beach access. If I were to... More

I stayed here with my family as a short vacation and stayed in an extremely nice room with a great view of the bay. The rooms are a good size for my family and had an updated interior with tile, updated kitchen, and a swivel flat screen TV. The hotel was across the road from the beach and the beach... More

We were accomodated with a bay view. Brought complimentary champagne and a beautiful card! Great staff! Beautiful room and view. Excellent time! Loved the complimentary beer and wine from 4-5pm! We booked an additional day because we didn't want to leave! They provided service beyond our expectations!Definitely will be returning!

My husband and I live in Central Florida and we love to go on weekend getaways around the state. We stayed at the Bay Palms June 7th- 9th, the weekend of my husband's birthday. We checked in at the sister property, that was a short distance away. Extremely friendly staff, gave us ideas for restaurants to eat at. When we... More

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
