We hit the jackpot in finding this place to stay! We trailered our boat and upon check-in, they gave us a map to a ramp right up the street. There was a little confusion as to where to park the trailer. The directions given to us over the phone were vague. Make sure you ask someone to meet you because... More

I was lucky enough to be hosted during the Superior Small Lodging Blogger Road Trip and this place is amazing. On the beautiful McPherson Bayou, the Bay Palms offers so much. I was in a two bedroom/ two bathroom suite that had an amazing view of the water. I loved the full kitchen, and saving money from not having to... More

Well maintained property. Our room overlooked the pool, dock and the bay. The beach is just across the street and we were in walking distance to restaurants, Publix, and Walgreens. Very convenient and a great location.

Remodeled and very spacious with separate kitchen, bedroom and parlor with large screen tv...our only negatives were was the couch in the parlor was too thin to sit on comfortably for any lentgh of time and had to grab pillow for back and butt support....also they...

Stayed here right on the bay. My husband caught tons of fish. We seen many birds and the manatee did swim right up to the dock. The street it's on is very busy but when you are in the back you don't hear a thing. Clean rooms. Met a lot of great people and Walgreens is next door open 24... More

We booked a last minute trip and were lucky enough to find a room at Bay Palms. We were traveling with small kids and a dog. Our room was very clean, and you could tell it was recently renovated. Not a long walk to Publix (I did it with a 3, 4, & 6 year old). The parking was difficult... More

My girlfriend and I came stayed at the Bay Palms from April 11-18th. We had an excellent time! The hospitality was top-notch and Tony was fabulous! Just to give you an example - We got locked out of our room one day, due to the battery in the lock dying, and it wouldn't read our card. Tony comes over, guides... More

The hotel is nice, very clean, beds are comfortable, pillows aren't lumpy and the bathroom had a very nice luxurious feel. The hotel is centrally located on St Pete Beach and you're about a block away from the sister hotel with beach access. However, there was incessant dog barking all hours of the day and night since this hotel allow... More
