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

Completely refurbished as stated, top to bottom, nice fixtures & flat screen TV, great deck over the water with BBQ grills & all utensils provided. Cleanest value hotel I've ever stayed in. We had their smallest hotel room due to our late booking but it was fine for two nights. We were told no kitchen but it had a cute... 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

Our friends were staying at the Don Cesar and we were in town one night for a birthday party. We wanted something close enough and affordable. This happened to be the one. We were pleasantly surprised! The rooms were very clean, very quiet, and just the right size. The pool was nice. Our only complaint is that it isn't on... More

This is our 3rd year back. Usually stay in the Bayview right next door, but an error in booking put us in the Bay Palms in a larger room with full kitchen, livingroom and seperate bedroom. It was exceptionally clean and comes with everything you need. Service is always friendly. Happy hour is fun and a good way to meet... More

We have been staying in the Clearwater/St. Pete area for several years. This is by far the best of the best. The room we had was a 2 bed/2bath. The cost was for less then half of one of the big name hotels. The views and staff were something we are still bragging about to our friends. The only downfall... More
