“Relax and kick back!”
Reviewed 21 November 2013 via mobile

I Can't say enough wonderful things about Baywaters Inn and the warm and kind owners, John-Michael an Brooks. They take such pride in the property, and always make you feel at home! We arrived to a spotless room, a beautiful view, and wagging tails (this hotel is pet friendly, with the 2 friendliest property dogs you'll ever pet!) Picture the best vacation experience you've ever had or the best hotel customer service you've experienced and this place will blow it out of the water. A true home away from home!

I can’t say enough good things about BayWaters Inn. From the moment you get there and are greeted by Brooks, John-Michael, Sparky and Bulldozer you feel like you are part of the family. This place is really a little piece of paradise. Quiet location on the intercoastal where you can easily tie up a boat if fishing is your thing or just sit and chill on the dock. No need for a pool when you can take 3 quick steps down into the bath-like waters of Boca Ciega Bay. The rooms are SUPER CLEAN and quaint with very comfy beds, flat screen TV and a very efficient AC. The kitchens have everything you need if you like to cook AND a full size refrigerator. The other great thing about BayWaters is their location to great restaurants and quaint little shops.

If you want to just relax and enjoy great company, both human and 4-legged, then this is the place for you. Looking forward to staying longer our next visit!

Room Tip: All the rooms are good...open your door, look to the left and you can watch the sunrise!

All we can say is thank you over and over again for the hospitality on our short one night stay. The property's "guard" dogs make this a perfect stay for people with pets. They played with our two while we went to a wedding - perfect. Thanks again- see you soon.

We found a little piece of paradise in the quaint - pet friendly Inn- our dog had a blast playing with the dogs and we were able to have a great time knowing our dog had fun too - property is centrally located, perfect for pets, rooms were clean and neat, kitchen is a plus and has a beautiful view of the bay, We have stayed at more expensive places but not nearly has enjoyable as BayWaters Inn. Thanks John Michael & Brooks for providing a great place to stay. Can't wait to come back.

What a great hotel! This place has it all. From Tampa Bay 150 foot water-front dock, and a few blocks from St. Pete Beach. Absolutely the cleanest rooms I've ever seen outside of a major hotel chain. Pet-friendly but not pet dominated. All the creature comforts too, like high def flat panel tvs, free wifi, expensive sheets, full-size kitchen, and new ACs. You can wake up and go fishing, grill out, rent jet-skis, or swim. There's a great courtyard with tiki bar, grill, and fire pit, all for community use. Absolutely beautiful views of the bay and night time skyline with frequent visits from dolphins. Owners John-Micheal and Brooks really did a great job renovating with high quality products. There's something for everybody here. It truly is the BEST KEPT SECRET in St. Pete. I totally recommend this place, you get the big hotel service with the small business charm. I LOVE THIS PLACE.!!!!

Room Tip: all the rooms I've seen are great!

I had a wonderful 4th of July thanks to Bay Waters Inn!! Very clean rooms, no complications at all, and close to everything. We sat around the bon fire and ate s'mores and grilled food, talked while enjoying the fireworks. Pet friendly and great service! We will definitely come back!

What a nice little piece of paradise. Nice clean rooms, with cute little kitchen. Beautiful landscaping and herb garden. Stayed at BayWaters only two nights, wish we could have stayed longer. John Paul and Brooks were very friendly and made my husband and I feel right at home. Will be back soon with our dog and to see the sunrise from the dock!
