Reviewed 7 March 2014

We stayed here only one night, but the rooms were nice and clean. Since we travel with our dogs, finding nice, clean rooms in great locations is really difficult. This was a great location with easy access to both the beach side and the dock side without having to endure the high traffic and loud noises near the room. I really like having the kitchenette in the room as well as the sitting area.

The one area of concern was the beds, which were not very comfortable, and showed signs of wear.

Stayed for 2 weeks at the beginning of February and will be back next year for the entire month. Wonderful facility on a secluded bayou with fishing, fun and new friends on the fabulous decks. Homey feel just the ticket for a relaxing, rewarding stay. Close to the best of St. Pete beach and the staff simply is the best from property general manager Robert on down. Can't wait to get back to the Bay Palms!

We stayed here only one night but it absolutely met our expectations. Room was nice and clean and as we slept onto the lagune we didn't hear the traffic on the main road.
We definitely would return to this hotel.

Stayed here for 4 weeks in dec-jan. Great location, shopping nearby, Inga the housekeeper was great, kids loved the swimming pool, I appreciated the laundry facilities ;-)
Only minus: crappy beds, worn bed linen and towels. Time for a small upgrade in that area.

Mia,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your stay. I’m glad your family had a nice time. Thanks for mentioning Inga – I will let her know you appreciated her service. We are replacing our bedding at the Bay Palms this week, so please come back and visit us again to see the upgrades we've made.

It was nice and clean, worth the money! We love st. Petersburg, and the homey atmosphere! We didn't take advantage of the outdoor facilities, but it was a nice option! Next time we will go when it is warmer! Hopefully see some wildlife from the dock!

In the last 5 years I haved stayed here three times; twice on business(conferences) and once on vacation. Each time I found the staff to be pleasant, welcoming, and accomodating. The owner himself, Robert, went out of his way to find a place for my son and me to work on our racing sailboat in preparation for a start out of Tampa Bay. The rooms are very clean, well equipped and thought out. The waterfront location is charming. The housekeeping staff is friendly and thorough. And best of all, when I got in late on my first night, there was Mariah again at the front desk, the same endearing young woman who had taken care of us last year. It says a lot for a place to keep good people like her. We will be back and will look forward to it.

Very happy with the Bay Palms resort. Our room was really nice. Clean clean clean. Fantastic service from the front desk and the cleaning staff were great. Very close to the beach. Laundry facilities on site. Close to grocery and drug stores. Well worth it. Would definitely go back. Across the street from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Access to all three facilities including the beachfront resort and pool area.

Room Tip: Ask for a one bedroom.
