“Wonderful 4 day stay!”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

We arrived May 10th 2014 after a long ride from the other side of Florida; w pulled up and thought OMG what have we done! We travel with our dog so my husband walked him while I ran across the street to check in. After unloading the car and finding a car wash to get rid of the ever popular love bugs we soon knew why this property got such rave reviews. Our room was bright, clean and quiet (even though it faced the street). Staff from the front desk helpful and Inga the housekeeper was a jewel, professional yet sweet and so helpful. After the crowds left on Sunday it became our almost private oasis. Husband enjoyed fishing off the dock and we both enjoyed the pool. It was a relaxing stay. We would stay there again.

Thank you for a great Five Star review of your stay at the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort – Hotel and Marina. I’m glad you were pleasantly surprised with our accommodations. Though from the outside our resorts have an old Florida look by design, we are completely updated and modern. There are so few boutique resorts left, we try to preserve the vintage feel of family vacations of years past, but with all of the upgrades and amenities today’s guests expect. I will be sure to let Inga know you appreciated her service. I hope to see you (and your doggy Quinlan) again very soon for another relaxing getaway!

Travelling aroung the States my family and I always leave a few days unplanned as this always gives us the best and most memorable experiences. However, this time we were almost out of luck.

Around Easter, with 7 people traveling together on a budget, it is apparently not that easy finding accommodations for the night around St. Pete's Beach. After trying 6 different B&B's, hotels etc. we stopped by Bay Palms Waterfront Resort to see if they could help us. To our luck the very accommodating (and patient) girl in the reception had just one apartment left across the street, that could fit us all and she was very kind to give us a fantastic price for it.

The apartment was very cozy, clean and fit all 7 of us perfectly. The other guests were very friendly and the pool and the surroundings were great, too.

Though we only stayed there for one night (and thus didn't get to see much of st. Pete's beach, anyway), I will definitely recommend this as a great place to stay. The staff was extremely helpful and we enjoyed our stay in the beautiful apartment.

Room Tip: We stayed across the street in the other part of the hotel.

Our room was very clean and comfortable! The rooms have recently been remodeled and are perfect for a beach getaway. Loved it, looking forward to staying there again with my whole family. Definitely recommend!

The only reason I gave Spa and Breakfast three stars is because we did not use either.

Thank you for a great Five Star review of your recent stay at the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort – Hotel and Marina. I’m thrilled that you loved it and would visit again with your family. I just want to point out that we do not have a spa or breakfast on site, though there are several nearby that we can recommend when you return. See you soon!

Stayed here first time in February and then returned in late April. I have found that they are constantly working on upgrading the rooms and the grounds. Everyone was friendly and by the time you left if you got engaged with all of the couples / families that returned you felt you belonged as well. While this is across from the street to the beach you were on the waterside- so I observed a few fishing off their two piers. A lot of room configurations so call to see what works best for you.

When we first checked in I thought it was going to be a great stay as the lady at the check in was super friendly!! We arrived to find that our room was extremely tiny....I knew it was a suite,but this was not what I expected? There was a fridge, microwave & dishes, but only a bathroom sink to clean your dishes & wash in? That I thought was disgusting....if I had of know I would never have booked it! We are not the type to complain & it was only a 3 night stay, so we would make the best of it! It says daily housekeeping, but this is not the case.....the only thing the cleaning lady did was change the towels.....the floors were disgusting.....we had to wear our sandals because if not your feet were black! I would have been fine if it wasn't listed as an amenity, but it was, so the floors should have been cleaned....We did see a 1 bedroom & it looked great, so maybe it was just that room? We loved the location, the Marina was beautiful & The Sister Resort up the street was great as well.....right on the beach with lots of sun chairs & hammocks! St. Pete's is a beautiful place to visit....I'd just be careful when booking a room!

Room Tip: Don't pick room 108.... Very tiny with no sunlight at all? Only a bathroom sink & you have...

Thank you for your review and for mentioning our friendly staff. The room you reserved was our standard hotel room, booked through a third party discount booking site. These are our most basic rooms and include only a partial kitchen. I always advise our guests that if you are not happy with your room or any part of your stay, to please let us know as soon as possible so that we can rectify the issue while you are still here. I would advise you to book directly with the hotel so that you are able to secure one of the larger one bedroom suites that do include a full kitchen, living area and separate bedroom. We do offer free daily housekeeping which includes towel exchange, trash removal, making up beds, sweeping and mopping. I will verify the procedures with our housekeeping supervisor and apologize if any part of your service was missed. I definitely encourage you to contact us directly to book at one of our hotels the next time you visit the area.
