I travel often for work and have stayed in more hotels than I can remember. This is one that I do remember though. I have stayed in all three properties here and would not hesitate to recommend any of them. The front desk staff are fantastic and very helpful, the rooms are clean and the location is close to several...

We only stayed one night (unfortunately). Everyone was exceptional and their goal is to make your stay a great one. The room was clean (actually the property was well taken care of and clean) and had just about everything you would want. We had a small unit since we were only staying one night. But when we stay more than...

Stayed for 4 nights in October 2013 at the Bay Palms and it is a great little hotel. It is slightly annoying having to head a few hundred yards up the road to check in at another hotel but only a minor annoyance. Staff were very friendly. I mentioned the safe in our room wasnt working and literally straight away...

SOOOO close to a home run. The property itself is in great shape, newly remodeled and a very large room. Granite kitchen, new large tile floors, kitchen table for a larger family. Modern TV's, great location next to Walgreens and close to Publix. It's great having the use of the other beachside facilities. They spent a great deal of attention...

A well-established, hidden gem of a resort right in the middle of everything on St. Pete Beach! This hotel and sister properties next door and across the main drag certainly provide all the amenities to make a vacation to this area complete. Quiet fishing and marine life on the bay side, relaxing, clear water beach on the Gulf side. Two...

My husband and I stayed here for the first time and we were impressed how clean our room was. Everyone from the front desk personnel to housekeeper with big smile (Inga, I think her name was) was very friendly and professional. Thank you, guys! We'll come back.

St. Pete Florida has some of the best beaches in the world with great sunsets! Fine sugar sand and warm clear water, whole family had a great time swimming, fishing and sunbathing. The weather was perfect, in the 80's daytime, and in the 60's at night. The Bay Palms Resort is on the bay side of the island so we...

I booked the room a couple months in advance. I had requested a beach view, but didn't realize that was their hotel across the street. They gave me the bay view room--which was absolutely beautiful!
