The location was really convenient with the beach just across the street. We enjoyed walking on the beach, and there were several beach bars within a block or two to view the beautiful sunsets. We were traveling with our pet and could walk to a park that was just a block away. The room was clean. Management was very friendly and helpful.

Thank you for visiting the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort on St Pete Beach. I apologize that you did not fully enjoy your stay, but a lot have changed since you were last here. This property has been taken over by the Czyszczon Family in April 2010.

Since April.2010, we have completely gutted the entire property and have renovated everything including pool area, decks, piers, walkway, completely new rooms with LCD’s, granite kitchens and bathrooms, and much more. The property is really a gem and I encourage everyone to please visit our new website and view are new photos.

Please disregard all the negative comments and bad photos before April.2010. And we look forward to seeing you at our new property.

This is our second trip together to St. Pete Beach. This year we decided to stay somewhere more economical without sacrificing ammenities that we enjoy. Bay Palms has everything and more. We were a little worried about some of the old reviews on Trip Advisor, but Steve (the manager) assured us that the rooms are newly renovated and under new ownership. We had a lovely room (although the bed was a little uncomfortable). We had kitchen ammendities, a flat screen TV and a view of the Bay, which was a nice surprise as we stayed on the beachside the previous year. The large deck and pool was lovely. My boyfriend had his heart set on having a BBQ, but the BBQ was not very clean. He mentioned it to the manager and he got it taken care of immediately. I found the owners were concerned as to whether we had a good stay at their resort. My only complaint was that a small investment of memory foam on the bed would have made this stay PERFECT!!!

I am so glad we stayed at Bay Palms Waterfront Resort! We had originally booked at Bayview, a sister resort, but were upgraded to a suite at the Bay Palms for no extra charge. I was originally hesitant because I had read several "bad" reviews of the Bay Palms but was very pleasantly surprised. We had a 1 bedroom suite with 2 sofa beds in the living room for the kids. The only problem was one of the sofa beds wasn't very comfortable. The bedroom had all new furniture. The owners were wonderful and the service was excellent. We were right across the street from all the business on the Gulf but also enjoyed the peacefulness of a small hotel on the bay. Can't wait to go back!

As a frequent business traveler I found the hotel very accommodating for me as well as it would be if I were to bring my family down. I was surprised to see a full kitchen in my room and penalty of space to get my work done. The free Wifi had a great signal, the heated pool was overlooking the water, free parking, free small fitness room, everything I needed at a very reasonable rate and walking distance to all the restaurants. Most importantly my room was clean and the staff at both offices were very helpful and outgoing. I will be returning later in the year for another business trip to St Pete Beach and I will definitely choose the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort. You get the best value with many amenities.
