We stayed in November 2008, however I am just getting around to posting my feedback now. We spent 8 nights at the Bay Palms Resort on St Pete Beach. Our room was clean and it looked like they were in the process of improving the property. The pool was just reopened 2 days before we got there after a complete renovation, and new pavers around the hotel were being installed. The location was great, all the restaurants and grocery store was in walking distance. There is no Starbucks on the beach, however the bakery next door was perfect for my morning coffee and pastries. This is a very nice, clean, simple property and a very affordable price that is on St Pete Beach.

We went down to Florida to find a place to stay along the Gulf coast and just happened to end up at this resort. We are so happy that we did! It is right across the street from miles of white sandy beaches that we walked often. It has a big deck at the back as well as a pool which overlook Boca Ciega Bay. While sitting on the deck, we saw flying fish, a small manta swim by and a dolphin that swam around nearby. It was amazing! If you like to fish, you can do that from the deck. The place was very comfortable and clean. The management was both friendly and helpful. It is in walking distance of a grocery store, a small mall, a drugstore and restaurants.

We just needed a quick getaway from Atlanta so decided to drive south. We ended up on St Pete Beach and drove around looking for a hotel. We ended up at the Bay Palms waterfront resort, and were very pleased. It is actually a small resort with not much road appeal, however on the inside it has everything you need. First off, it was very quiet, with very few people because there are very few rooms, maybe 12-15 rooms max. There was a pool overlooking the water, a very large pier to relax or fish from, wireless internet, use of fitness room, and just across from the beach and walking distance to everything. We had a one bedroom with a queen bed and a separate living room with sofa and full kitchen. The room was clean, the service was good, and the beach was beautiful, much better than Panama City were we normally go.
We will keep this place in mind for future stays, it was also better on my wallet than what I normally pay in Panama City.

If you read my review that I posted for Plaza Beach Resort you would know that my family of five just spent a week in St Pete Beach. Because we booked late and it was Spring Break, we have to move half way through our stay. So we spent the first four nights at the Plaza Beach Resort and loved it and than we spent the last three nights at the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort and loved it even more.
Our room at the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort a Deluxe One bedroom Suite, room #105. This room was even better and bigger than the Deluxe Efficiency at the Plaza Beach Resort. We had a bedroom with two full beds, a living room with a sleeper sofa and a huge dinning room table for six people and full kitchen. There was a balcony off of the living room but it didn't face the water, however you could see the water from the bedroom window. The pool at this location was smaller but still plenty of space, and lots of chairs and tables around the pool and deck. The Bay Palms has a huge waterfront deck, did I mention it was HUGE, it really is. The front desk has free fishing poles that they give to guest, they take a $20.00 deposit per pole which the return when you return the fishing poles. All three children ended up get a fishing pole and before you knew it we had a fishing tournament going on. We all had some much fun, we wish had more time, but as I mentioned in my other review we will definitely be back. The family does a great job and we prefer to stay and support a family business, rather than a large hotel where you are just another person. Here they made you feel like family.
