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

My daughter was graduating from Eckerd College and we were again trying to find a reasonably priced hotel near by. We have been completely unhappy with every other hotel we've stayed in previously. The Bay Palms was a welcome relief. While the others had very dated and worn out facilities the Bay Palms has been well maintained and updated, despite... More

I just got back from spending a couple of days at the Bay Palms in St. Pete Beach, and I was very happy with the service, the room, and the location. I had gotten a very good price compared to other hotels and resorts in the area and was not disappointed at all. Please be aware that depending on your... More

We stayed at Bay Palms Waterfront Resort and chose them because we were coming by boat. The place was well maintained and the staff were friendly. We were able to keep the boat at the resort all weekend which was very convenient. The two of us stayed in #110 which was a great room with small patio on the inter-coastal.... More

I enjoyed the trip with my family for 3 days. The resort was clean and calm. It had a beautiful place for fishing and outdoor pool. The beach was close to the resort and it was free to park there. However, the office is away from the resort so that I had to drive to get there. The price was... More

This resort is close to everything. It is across the street from the beach resorts, half a block from Walgreens, 2 blocks from Publics, lots of restaurants within walking distance. To get to the beach walk south (to the right towards Walgreens) 1/2 block and cross Gulf Blvd. Look for the white concrete arch. Walk through the arch, it is... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I’m glad you appreciated our eco-friendly initiatives and close proximity to the beach and stores.
