“fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

We stayed in August for a long weekend. It was a very short walk across the street to the beach. The property has a beautiful deck and pool, you can even bring your fishing poles if you want. The room was extremely clean and a very short walk to restaurants. I would recommend this property to everyone and anyone I know. We brought our dog and it is a very pet friendly place to be. The price we paid was simply amazing for the value we received. We only live 2 hours south on the beach and I would visit Bay Palms every weekend if I could.

Thank you vwlizard1 for your review. I am pleased to hear that you had a fantastic experience and were very happy with the price you paid. We really try to offer the best accommodations, at the best price, with the best service, together we believe that’s a winning combination for our guest. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the pool and large deck, but most importantly that you were able to bring your pet. Our pet friendly rooms have been very popular and we are continuing to improve and add addition amenities.

Thank you again for your review and I look forward to seeing you back soon.

We stayed here for a friend's wedding in town because it was the best price we could find close to the beach. I'd have to say that my only complaint in that the refrigerator in our room reeked of dead fish and made everything we put in there smell too, to the point where we refused to even open the thing. Other than that the staff was nice and the people were quiet so we were able to sleep. For the price it was a lot better than I could have expected.

Room Tip: Avoid room #108

Thank you for your review. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that your room was better than you expected. We have done a lot of renovations to the property and are always improving the resort. I apologize and I am sorry to hear that your refrigerator smelled of dead fish, this is not a typical case at our resort. All are rooms, and kitchens are thoroughly cleaned. Room #108 is a great room and should not be avoided, this was a onetime incident.

Since this review we have implemented a new procedure in our housekeeping department to ensure this will never happen again. Thank you again for bringing this to my attention and I look forward to seeing you and your friends back at the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort or any of our Plaza Resorts on St Pete Beach.

We have visited this property 10 times and every time cannot wait to return! Have been bringing our 3 year old son since he was born. We have stayed in almost every room at the property and think they are each unique and perfectly located. Very clean, most friendly and helpful staff! Great facilities; love visiting both pools and using the dock as well! Cannot say enough about how wonderful these properties are. Family managed and it shows! You will NOT be disappointed. . .we NEVER are :)

Loved the bay palms hotel. Room was clean and had been recently renovated. Had a nice swimming pool and beautiful view of the waterway. Price was very reasonable. Walking distance to lots of cool places and the bus stop was right out front when we wanted to go further. Will be back again.

We had a wonderful stay! Comfortable and clean, it felt like our home away from home. My teenager was fishing until late into the night and never once complained about being bored! Great place to disconnect. Steve was helpful and friendly, and Jurgita is the best!!! She was flexible and kept our place in impeccable order.

We stayed at Bay Palms for a night in June-- our room was off to the side with a little deck right on the water. Very nice! We enjoyed having our breakfast with a view of the intercoastal! The room was nice and very clean. On the advise of other trip advisors and the owners of the resort, we took our Golden Retriever to Fort DeSoto- an awesome dog friendly beach about 10 minutes away. Also John's Pass was fun to walk around in the evening with our dog. We would definetly stay again if we're in the area. Great to find a dog friendly resort that allows larger pets (we always reserve ahead so there are no surprises;))- we had to leave a deposit which was promptly refunded on our departure.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bay Palm Waterfront resort. We stayed in a deluxe one bedroom room. The room was amazing! It was nice to be able to go across the street and use the facilities at the beachfront property. We will be back!
