We recently stayed at the Bay Palms for 5 nights. This bay side complex for the most part has been upgraded with many obvious improvements and the unit we stayed in was very clean. We stayed in a 1 bedroom deluxe unit & while our stay was quite comfortable there were just a couple of things we do wish we'd... More

Once again there were more improvements to the entire complex. We were delighted with the blue ceilings and crown molding and the larger bedroom. The new walkway to the Bayview was another added feature that we liked and especially the "Pet Pottie" that made our walking of the dog much more pleasurable. The maid service is excellent and we can't... More

Just got back from 7 glorious days at Bay Palms Resort. This makes 3 years in a row that we've enjoyed their hospitality. And every year, there's something new which has been added to make the stay even more enjoyable. This year it was the comfort of knowing that the new security doors with the digital passkey entry will assure... More

This group of charming small hotels have rooms right on the ocean and across the street bayside - so no matter where you stay you're close to the water! All the rooms have been recently remodeled and are spotlessly clean. Most have their own private balconies or outdoor patio area, and there are many extra amenities such as several laundry... More

We were out of luck this season for getting the suite in Bayview Plaza next door, where we spent a wonderful vacation the year before, but we got one in Bay Palms instead. Hooked on the breathtaking vistas through the huge balcony door, we were not convinced, but instead of the huge window we were greeted to more modern appointments,... More

This was our third year in a row to one of the Plaza Beach Resorts. We had a nice spacious one bedroom suite, with a huge living area, a kitchen, and two outside seating areas. Ask for a room overlooking the marina, rather than the main road for a little more privacy. Two of the Plaza Beach resorts allow dogs... More

First of all it is "pet friendly". The room was very clean and comfortable with a full kitchenette and table. Nice view of the water and very quiet. Spent 2 nites while visiting grandkids. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

One of the best dog friendly hotels we stayed in. We had a great time and so did the dog. The hotel is well maintained. We stayed on the intercoastal Bay Palms which is connected to the Bayview and share the property. We stayed in the one bedroom deluxe that was large and clean. The floors are all tile. The... More

Quaint, clean, close to almost everything and even tho it's on the main street...quiet. Well worth the money. Parking can be a challenge with all of the traffc..back in it will save you some time when it comes time to leave.Only spent one night there but would certainly go back.
