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...

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.

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!

The Bay Palms Resort is a nice place to stay on the St. Pete Beach in Florida. We enjoyed fishing from the dock and lounging around on the benches. Bay Palm is dog friendly so you can bring you pet which is nice. Access to the beautiful beach is at the end of the block (a short walk) and that...
