Have stayed here many times. Pet friendly, beach access across the street. Rooms are clean and staff is helpful. Nice fishing and boat dock. We always look forward to our stay at Bay Palms. Short walk to restaurants and bars.

We arrived at about 3 to check in. The office has a sign in the door stating that the office is closed and you must check in down the street at one of their sister properties. Not a good start. Hotel was pet friendly, which was a plus. The room was very small and bathroom was also very small. The... More

We had a great time with family and friends during our stay at Bay Palms Waterfront Resort! The staff was so attentive, especially Katie Wilcox! She is very professional and kind! I left my make-up bag in the bathroom under the sink and the maid service took it to the main office and Katie made sure it was kept safe... More

Nice hotel, nice pool and dock on an intercoastal waterway. minor things needed repair, such as bathroom door handle was loose, pull out couch mattresses could use to be replaced. Had a minor incident at check-in that was dealt with immediately and to our satisfaction. Parking was limited and on a busy street.

The check in was easy and fast, katie gave us some recommendations for restaurants to try. Once we were in our room, we were in awe. So clean and nice. Our room overlooked the bay and was able to see manatees and dolphins every day. This is a hidden gem and we will return every year!

This little hotel is amazing and so is Kelli. We found this hotel on Hotwire for a single night getaway just for fun. It is better than the pictures. Everything in the room was nice and beautiful. The balcony was amazing. The pool was smaller but was awesome. Looking off of the pier was the best. We sat at the... More

If you want a nice quick trip on a budget, this is the place. Me & the Mrs. went and it was hard for to leave the next day. We had a delicious breakfast at Beverley restaurant, then check in to a clean room. Don't want to spoil it, just check out the place. It's well worth it

I loved the quiet by the dock. Waking up in the morning and being able to step outside onto the patio and out on the dock. We only stayed 2 nights but I would consider coming back for a longer stay and taking advantage of the grill by the pool and tables out on the dock. It was a short... More

We keep coming back to the Bay Palms Resort group (there are three properties - one on the gulf, the other two on the bay) when we're in St. Pete. We travel with our dog, and this is a very dog-friendly property (on the bay side). Housekeeping isn't daily, unless you ask for it, but it's easy to get things... More
