The Bay Palms Resort is a nice place to stay on the St. Pete Beach in Florida. We enjoyed fishing from the dock and lounging around on the benches. Bay Palm is dog friendly so you can bring you pet which is nice. Access to the beautiful beach is at the end of the block (a short walk) and that...

Grabbed a room when Disney got boring. Beautiful area. Beach at sister resort down the street was great. Low key, high quality and service, modest price. Sand is like baby powder.

First of all, it's always interesting when I'm searching for a hotel and see a vast majority of positive reviews and then a few outliers that say how not so great the place is.
