This is a small property that has a great location with its own waterfront patio and pool, and access to the Gulf across the street. Our "standard hotel room" was updated and super clean. We had everything we needed and felt lucky to not have street noise. There's a free happy hour at their main location a short walk away...

The Bay of Palms St Pete's Beach was excellent. Very clean. Excellent staff. Pools clean. We saw manatees from the sun dock areas. My husband caught more than 100 fish the week we were there from the fishing docks at resort. Well lit at night. Happy Hour between 4pm and 5pm was fun free beer and wine. The ocean beach...

Plaza Beach Resorts are an affordable and relaxing place to stay on St. Pete Beach. The Bay Palms is a great way to see manatee, dolphin and even sharks while sitting on the dock. I would recommend this hotel and the staff are very helpful and friendly!

We just finished our seventh annual visit to Bay Palms resort, and had a wonderful time as usual. We love walking out to the beautiful re-modeled deck (it's huge!) in the morning with our coffee and now that it's lit up at night, it's relaxing to hang out there to visit with friends or read a book in the evening....

Bay Palm is, in my estimation about a 3.5 facility. Condos are on a canal. Sundeck is recently updated. Nice pool. Very nice. We had a deluxe room w/one bedroom. Very roomy. Well equipped. Kitchen did not have a dishwasher or oven. Missed the dishwasher. However, the situation worked well. Bay Palm is part of a resort ownership that owns...

Hotel is not as pictured, it is run down and generally a not good experience. I'd not recommend it to anyone! First room they couldn't get the room to unlock and the second 'upgraded' room was on the street with noise and grose blue ceilings... "please don't got!"
