The check in was easy and fast, katie gave us some recommendations for restaurants to try. Once we were in our room, we were in awe. So clean and nice. Our room overlooked the bay and was able to see manatees and dolphins every day. This is a hidden gem and we will return every year!

This little hotel is amazing and so is Kelli. We found this hotel on Hotwire for a single night getaway just for fun. It is better than the pictures. Everything in the room was nice and beautiful. The balcony was amazing. The pool was smaller but was awesome. Looking off of the pier was the best. We sat at the...

If you want a nice quick trip on a budget, this is the place. Me & the Mrs. went and it was hard for to leave the next day. We had a delicious breakfast at Beverley restaurant, then check in to a clean room. Don't want to spoil it, just check out the place. It's well worth it

I loved the quiet by the dock. Waking up in the morning and being able to step outside onto the patio and out on the dock. We only stayed 2 nights but I would consider coming back for a longer stay and taking advantage of the grill by the pool and tables out on the dock. It was a short...

We keep coming back to the Bay Palms Resort group (there are three properties - one on the gulf, the other two on the bay) when we're in St. Pete. We travel with our dog, and this is a very dog-friendly property (on the bay side). Housekeeping isn't daily, unless you ask for it, but it's easy to get things...

We were in St Pete Beach for a wedding and stayed in an efficiency unit, which consisted of bed, bathroom and small kitchenette. (frig, micro, coffeemaker). The room was very clean and located right on the bay. Nice size pool (also very clean) and great surrounding area just to lounge. They also have grills to use, which is nice. The...

The plus sides were the deck behind the building that is on a small inlet and updated rooms and deck lounges. The view from our second of two rooms was nice. Good size efficiency style rooms. The down sides were the view from the first of our two rooms--a truck in the small front lot right outside the window. Terrible...

This is our second stay here. The hotel clerks are all very friendly and go above and beyond my needs. The housekeepers check on us to make sure we have everything we needed. The place is clean, close to the beach, and we can fish right off the dock....what more can we ask for!

Will be going back for the 3rd time next winter. LOVE this place. Staff are excellent from the front desk to Tony in maintenance and housekeeping. We were in Room 214 and like the extra space. Dog friendly!

I wouldn't classify this as a "resort". Its a small little Mom & Pop kinda place. It would have been nice to know in advance that you have to check in at their main location down and across the street. It's clearly their standard check in process considering they have a nice big printed sign on the door giving you...
