Grabbed a room when Disney got boring. Beautiful area. Beach at sister resort down the street was great. Low key, high quality and service, modest price. Sand is like baby powder. Lagoon behind this resort was nice too. Saw manatees and all sorts of marine life at night via the underwater mercury vapor marine lights. Should have brought a fishing...

First of all, it's always interesting when I'm searching for a hotel and see a vast majority of positive reviews and then a few outliers that say how not so great the place is. I then look to see how many reviews each person has written to make sure it's not just a friend helping out or a competitor trolling...

This is the second time we stayed at Bay Palms. We had a recently renovated ground floor one bedroom unit. Rooms were very clean, well equipped with two large flat panel TVs.

This was comfortable and nice hotel, the room was quite big sharing a bedroom and a living room. The staff was helpful and the beach nearby was awesome with white sand. This is a good place to stay overnight on roadtrip like we were. No breakfast included.
