“Lovely stay!”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 relaxing days after travelling the east coast. We wanted somewhere we could really chill out, soak up the sun and purely relax after a busy few weeks. This place was perfect! It is a very small, personal, family run little place.

The location- Its across the road from the beach. A 2 minute walk. Beautiful. Its across the road from a Walgreens and a couple of blocks from a supermarket called Publix (somewhere to stock up the kitchenette for a reasonable price). Being unable to drive we didn't really venture down the boulevard much. The area directly by Bayview Plaza doesn't have too much going on (but we were only interested in the beach, really). But I do believe there is a bus service and also a beach taxi service that runs only on tips. If you wanted to be directly on top of somewhere lively, then maybe not here. But getting taxis may suit you.
Also - you have to check in at their reception which is down the road a little. Its not far, but if you don't drive and have a lot of luggage it can be hard in the heat!

The staff- SO lovely! We arrived super early, but the receptionist was so friendly and managed to speed up our check in for us. We left our luggage with them whilst we had breakfast in the IHOP down the road. When we came back we could check in :)

We took part in filming a testimonial video on our first afternoon. We said how lovely and relaxing the bay is! The staff were very lovely. We spoke to the manager and she gave us some tips on where to eat!

Another of the owners was barbecuing some fresh fish (there is a BBQ on the bay). He called up to our balcony to offer us some. He came up to deliver it to us! Two types of fish..it was delicious - and such a personal touch to our stay!!

Room- We had a room on the upper level (there are not many rooms at all) with a balcony. It had the road on one side..but the beautiful bay and sunrise on the other side made up for the road. It wouldnt be the ideal balcony for peaceful sunbathing spot however, because of the road. But for having our OJ in the morning out there in the morning, it was perfect.

The bed was very very comfortable!

Bathroom- After travelling, I had run out of shampoo/conditioner and because I was low on money and we were only there for 4 days, I decided to use the product provided by the hotel - an un-named product from a wall dispenser. I was dubious. Generic shampoos on the wall are usually really bad. But! It was lovely! I later spotted the cleaning ladies with big Tresemme bottles in their carts...much better than basic shampoo! Its little things that make a difference sometimes. Just an extra touch.

The location, the room and the staff...all served for a LOVELY trip.

Room Tip: We had one of the rooms on the upper level; it had a balcony where you could see the bay and the sun...

Green Features: They had recycling bins in the car park. And they have a sign on the bathroom wall asking to think about water-usage etc.

First of all, yes I would stay here again and it was very clean. Great location, quiet and peaceful when we were there. The room/suite we had was large with a nice eat-in kitchen, full fridge, stove top, microwave, toaster, dishes, utensils, pots and pans. The back side of the property facing the bay had a very nice view with lounge chairs, pool, & bbq. The down side ( especially for someone who is used to the larger chain hotels) would be the first impression when you drive up. The exterior appearance is not great, and there is no office. You have to go down the street to their other location to check in. Our room was literally right on the street and the parking lot was tiny. Our car got hit by another car backing into us the last day. The rooms have tile, no carpet. The bathrooms are nicely updated and the space is well used, but they are just a little larger than a cruise ship bathroom. Unless you want to get up, get dressed and walk 100 yards down and across the street to their other property, you will have to bring your own coffee, cream, and sugar...they provide the pot and filters. You can also use the pool and beach area at the other property, which is very nice.

My wife and I landed here on our trip through
Florida. We didn't make any reservations but we got a nice room on the bayside. The room was very nice with a kitchenette, good bed and the best, we had a terras directly on the water. The room was very clean. The staff was very friendly and we recommand this to everyone.

Room Tip: We don't know about the rooms directly on the beach, but the one we got on the bay was wonderful

My wife and I have been coming to the Bayview Plaza Waterfront Resort once a year for the last ten years. We have never been disappointed. The rooms are always meticulously clean and the beds are among the most comfortable we have ever encountered in our travels at home or abroad. The staff is gracious and accommodating. The area is filled with stores, restaurants, and drug stores at a convenient walking distance. We also love being at walking distance from the beach but far from the crowds and the noise. To our surprise during our last visit, the Waterfront had undergone further upgrades and improvements since our last visit. Our stay was even more pleasant and comfortable. To top an absolutely perfect stay, as we stood at our porch area we were graced by the sight of a beautiful adult dolphin just off the dock. It was a truly magical moment.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor facing the dock have a great view.

I stayed two nights on a business trip and truly enjoyed my stay. The view of the intercoastal was very relaxing. The rooms amenities made it very enjoyable and comfortable. The room was very updated and clean. I appreciated the green initiatives by this hotel which goes beyond those you will see in most hotels. Great place. I would absolutely stay again.

My wife and I stayed at the Bayview Plaza Resort for five days. We loved the small, secluded atmosphere. It was close to the beach and we had our own waterfront behind us. We loved watching the manatees just off of the dock. We made wonderful friends. The staff was excellent and the rooms were clean. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer. It was a fabulous vacation. We will definately be returning as soon as we can get back to Florida.

Shawn,

Thank you for giving the Bayview Plaza Waterfront Resort a FIVE Star review! Great pic of the manatees, which can often be found frolicking around just steps from your room. I’m glad you enjoyed all aspects of your stay. I hope you are able to come back soon and spend more time here in sunnyl St Pete Beach!

Spent a couple of days just relaxing. Accommodations were very clean, well located and comfortable. Loved the afternoon happy hour. The bathroom was pretty tight, especially the shower. Nice Kitchen for a motel. Deck was great to sit on in the early evening.

Room Tip: Bathroom was pretty tight, especially the shower, but the kitchen was worth it.
