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.

We returned to this group of resorts called Plaza Beach Resorts for our second visit in 2 months. This group consists of the Bay Palm, Bayview and Plaza Beach Resort. The Plaza is on the ocean front and the other 2 are side by side on the waterfront of the intercoastal. It is a small boutique resort that is very... More

We had a late flight in and arrived after the office was closed. They left our key in an envelope and a letter with parking pass at the Main resort, not our resort we stayed at, in a drop box outside the office. The bed was like concrete. The key was just a standard house key not a card key... More

Thank you for your review. I apologize that our resort was not what you expected. St Pete Beach is a very safe area, and leaving a key in a drop box for late arrivals is very common here. Our office hours are 7:30am to 11:00pm seven days a week and then we provide a phone number to our afterhours manager... More

It was fine. Beautiful view over the bay. The room was remodeled. It is a two floor hotel, so you might want on the ground floor because I don't know if there are stairs. I stopped at the Florida Welcome Center and got their hotel coupon books. There was a coupon for $59 for 1-2 people at their sister property,... More

We were impressed by our suite with full kitchen, livingroom and seperate bedroom, all exceptionally clean and well equipped, quiet, comfortable, even nicely decorated. The pool here is just right for an after dinner, late evening dip, set in a well designed, cosy deck area where you can even enjoy a smoke by your drink. The hotel's private beach is... More
