Was in St Pete's for a couple of days on business and was unable to get a room at the conference hotel. Found Bayview on Trip Advisor and on basis of reviews booked. It was great - the staff were friendly, the room was huge and the views were spectacular. Really happy and would certainly book again.

Room Tip: Even though it is not on the beach, I would ask for the Bayview rooms rather than beach view.

Thank you Ella. You keep a clean well stocked establishment! We had second floor efficiency with a view of the bay. Everything clean and well maintained. Light bright colors recently renovated. Nice balcony with lounger and two chairs. Full size fridge, microwave and stovetop if you want to cook. (I don't but handy). The couple next door stay the winter and have for years. Seems there are lots of return customers. Don't blame them. Also spent some tine at the beach view...also excellent. Everything you need is close by. All staff terrific but Ella works hard keeping guests happy ...does a terrific job as well as the maintenance staff. Hot water problems when we were there ...apologized and gave us a gift certificate for restaurant next door. Talk about classy! Strongly recommend!

Great place to stay! They have remodeled the rooms and common areas beautifully. The cleaning staff seems to take great pride in keeping the place clean. We have been going to Florida for many years in the winter and usually stay on the beach, but decided to try the canal side. We arrived a day early and they booked us for the extra night with no problem. We stayed in a ground floor unit with a balcony facing the dock, great place to have coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening. It’s located near an Italian bakery (approx. 50 feet away) with fresh pastries every morning for when we didn‘t feel like going out for breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable and quiet, with a small kitchenette. The bed was great (we stayed at places with a bed that you wake up from not feeling rested) The staff and management were a pleasure to interact with. The G.M. was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and helped us avoid some of the lesser desirable places to eat and offering his advice on some great attractions. (yes, management is visible and walking around to make sure you are comfortable) I found this place on-line and decided to try it and were very happy with the resort. We got to use the beach by walking across the street and using the beach access walkway. The dock is a great place to watch and see fish, manatees, dolphins, crabs and a variety of birds. We like staying at the older resorts that have “character” and this has it, yet is updated and modern. Best of both worlds and reasonable rates. Bottom line, we enjoyed our stay and will be back.

This was the nicest place i have stayed in a long time. We had a quiet upstairs room which was very clean. That's what i look for. When we looked around the room i was surprised to see a door off the kitchen which went outside on our own balcony overlooking the waterfront marina. Across the street we could walk to the beach. Same side of the hotel was lots of shopping, eating, which was right out of the door. Very close. Overall the staff were so nice. I would most diffidently stay there again next year.

Room Tip: This room was overlooking the waterfront. Beautiful place and nice surroundings. Walk to stores and...

Nice place on the Boca Ciega Bay side of St. Pete Beach. Dock with herons and pelicans wanting you to throw them a fish. Nice reasonably priced room with kitchenette.

Only negative was that the parking lot was cramped- tough for me in my full sized truck to maneuver and park, although I managed.

We stayed here from January 13-22 in room 273 overlooking the bay. The room was well equipped and spotless and all staff we met couldn't have been more helpful, especially Tami on reception and Ela who looked after our room. The happy hour was a great way to meet other guests. The check in was across the road but it wasn't too far to walk and this was not an issue. We visited the Italian bakery next door for coffee and pastries and the nearby Italian restaurant for dinner, both were great.
We would definitely recommend this hotel.

We made a rather long trip. It included week long stays throughout Florida. Our St. Pete visit was here. I was inclined to leave the complex early but found everyone too friendly to chose this. Our room was so small it required moving the two chairs and small table aside for the evening. I was disappointed compared to our other city visits.

The treat was that our patio was only yards from the harbor with docks and beautiful varieties of birds. The other patrons were wonderful couples that have been coming for decades and some staying for months.

Thank you for your review. I’m sorry that you didn't fully enjoy your stay. The room you reserved was our Bayfront with Balcony Suite with a queen bed, full kitchen and the patio overlooking the beautiful bay. The room is designed for one or two guests. We do have other rooms that are larger, so I would encourage you to give us another try. Let us know you would like something a little more spacious and we can definitely find something to suit your needs. I wish you had let us know while you were here, as our front desk would have found another room for you. As you know, we have so many happy, returning guests and I would like for you to be included in that category. I welcome you back to one of our boutique resorts.
