If you want to sleep on a 1950's pull-out couch right next to the highway, then this is the place for you. I would have been more comfortable sleeping on a park bench. There was no office, you had to walk several blocks to check-in. The parking was terrible. It was small, cramped, and dated.

When I looked this hotel up online and began researching I have to admit, the reviews do not come close to the actual quality of the staff and service at this hotel. It is quaint and cute and not a large high rise hotel, it is just the opposite simply charming. You feel you can sit down relax, converse with... More

Would highly recommend to anyone who is looking to take their pets with them on vacation. Has boat dock area with hookups and also a large deck on the water to sit out and enjoy... More

My best review of this property is to tell you to stay somewhere else. Big mess-up with 2 rooms reserved for 2 couples. They didn't have the accommodations that were reserved, so it took awhile for them to come up with less than suitable rooms. Dim, stark and uninviting. Barely clean, old, worn out rooms. One of our party has... More

We stayed here over a long weekend and found the place to be comfortable. The front desk staff (who are located at one of the three hotels that they have on this street) were super friendly and helpful and gave me a free hat when we left. You can walk to the public beach and a few restaurants but otherwise... More

Not a bad resort. Clean. Calm. If you pay less than $80 per night, it worth it. Wifi was very weak. Try to not to get ground floor suites! Very close to the st pete beach. Call them before you reserve to make sure that you get a water front suite. Also ask them for match the price if reserve... More

My wife, our two daughters (7 and 4), and I stayed at Bay Palms Waterfront Resort the six days before Christmas. Our stay was wonderful from the moment we arrived. We got into St. Pete Beach mid-day. We were going to go to a public access beach close by but decided to see if we could check in early. Not... More

We were scheduled to assist my daughter in law with their trip to Disney and decided to arrive in FL a few days early to have some time to ourselves. We scheduled this facility after searching on line with Orbitz. I was GREATLY surprised at the exceptional value we received from this family owned group of three resorts. We were... More

Resort or Hotel is not a word I would use to describe this place Motel would be more apt. Anyways we stayed in a one bedroom (sort of) with kitchenette. The place was clean and serviceable. We were in a hallway room on the ground floor facing busy road. Out part was a small pool with sitting area with BBQs.... More

Wifi is free and... More
