Plaza Beach Resorts rents at three local properties so make sure you understand which one you are getting. We had a reservation at The Bay Palms Waterfront Resort which is a Boca Ciega Bay building with 7 or 8 units and just enough parking out front for that many cars. You have to drive a little ways down on the...

Really nice waterfront location on the bay. My husband loved fishing from the property's huge deck area with a tiki hut to spare him from the sun. Had a dog friendly room, which was great...tile floors throughout the room, but no rugs anywhere. Pool was nice, but not very large. Laundry room was convenient ($2/wash, $2/dry) but not very clean....

Had a 5 day stay in early April, while we weren't on the beach, we were on a nice bay with a big, quiet deck to relax. The beach was a 5 minute walk (basically across the street). The 2 bed 2 bath suite we had was very nice, clean, and quiet. The only negatives were the sofa in the...

We stayed here for the week over spring break and had so much fun! We enjoyed fishing, playing at the beach, swimming in the pools, playing mini golf, chess and everything else the hotel has to offer. It was perfect for our family.

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...

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....
