We were in St Pete Beach for a wedding and stayed in an efficiency unit, which consisted of bed, bathroom and small kitchenette. (frig, micro, coffeemaker). The room was very clean and located right on the bay. Nice size pool (also very clean) and great surrounding area just to lounge. They also have grills to use, which is nice. The... More

The plus sides were the deck behind the building that is on a small inlet and updated rooms and deck lounges. The view from our second of two rooms was nice. Good size efficiency style rooms. The down sides were the view from the first of our two rooms--a truck in the small front lot right outside the window. Terrible... More

This is our second stay here. The hotel clerks are all very friendly and go above and beyond my needs. The housekeepers check on us to make sure we have everything we needed. The place is clean, close to the beach, and we can fish right off the dock....what more can we ask for!

Will be going back for the 3rd time next winter. LOVE this place. Staff are excellent from the front desk to Tony in maintenance and housekeeping. We were in Room 214 and like the extra space. Dog friendly!

I wouldn't classify this as a "resort". Its a small little Mom & Pop kinda place. It would have been nice to know in advance that you have to check in at their main location down and across the street. It's clearly their standard check in process considering they have a nice big printed sign on the door giving you... More

Me and my husband (mid 20's) came here for our "babymoon" :) and we absolutely loved it! Prices were SO great, nice pools, beautiful not overly crowded section of the beach, perfect for family vacations (lots of room, not a ton of people), beautiful views of the bay, fishing (no license required), the room was BIG, nice kitchenette, a dog...

Our room was right off the bay and the view was beautiful! Our room was small, but comfortable. We had a coffee pot, but no coffee (which I really need to get going on the morning). The room had soap, shampoo and conditioner dispensers in the bathroom, which we thought was nice. The man that checked us in was very... More

A family owned and operated resort with a personalized touch that keeps people coming back year after year. This was our second stay at the Bay Palms and we hope to return. The facility offers three choices of buildings one overlooking the gulf and the other two across the street overlooking a small bay. Each location has a swimming pool... More

I needed to head tow to St Pete for a friend’s wedding. Several people were staying at a large hotel and we had a block of rooms at a discounted rate… this place was still $40 or $50 cheaper a night and it was about a mile away. It is not on the beach, but it is less than a... More
