We found this gem as a last resort. Tried to book the Pink Plaza but were unable to and this gem is just down the road on the opposite side it doesn't look like much from the road, but the room was directly on the water, my kids were able to rent fishing poles and fish two steps from our room on a very large dock. At night there are lights so you can fish at night too. There are manatees! It is extremely picturesque and peaceful. The room is clean with a full refrigerator, full size coffee maker, microwave and dishes. Parking was at the door. No special ammenities like a restuarant, room service, bell hop and you have to check in across the street which was a bit confusing, our room didn't have a bathtub just a small walk in shower. There was a wonderful Italian resturarant at the entrance which had won awards for best food on the beach for several years we enjoyed the homemade garlic cheese rolls/sticks. There is a Walgreens within walking distance and a Publix within a couple of blocks. Surprisingly this hotel takes dogs and it doesn't smell or look like they do. It was so nice my family was inclined to stay, swim in the small pool, fish, or just relax on our own private porch (upstairs had decks), take pictures of the beautiful bay instead of venture out it was nice to relax and refresh here. They also have a sister property across the street directly on the beach and they provide accessibility to the beach and all ammentities provided there. So essentially you have the best of both worlds, if you like serene still bay you have this and if you prefer the beach you can track across the street (we did & watched the sunset) which was spectacular St. Pete is known for thier beautiful beaches.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade. If traveling with pet once room found in order deposit returned.

We spent 3 weeks in the "exec suite" in Bayview, and boy was that the best vacation stay we've ever had. The hotel itself may be no Ritz, but that is the beauty of it, the, guess what, bay view through the panoramic window on the upper floor every morning was something to die for, the suite was very spacious for a family of three to feel like at home, rather than in a stencil-made abide. The beach (and another, larger swimming pool next to it, at the Plaza Beach Hotel) is really close, easily accessed and very nice - broad, well maintained and clean.

The staff and owners made sure all our needs were met, a blown lightbulb was replaced pretty much immediately, and the room was kept tidy each day by very nice ladies.

Highly recommended.

Thank you your wonderful review. You stayed in our Penthouse Suite the Bayview Plaza Waterfront Resort, that room is definitely the best room in the hotel. You were here in October, the first week of November we completely renovated the Penthouse Suite room as part of our 2011 hotel renovation. It looks Amazing now, if you loved it than, you’ll love it even more now.

I am glad that you enjoyed the amenities from our two sister properties, the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort and the Plaza Beach Hotel-Beachfront Resort. I will share your wonderful comments with our staff and housekeepers who kept you room tidy every day. Also, thank you for sharing your photos.

Welcome to our extend family. I look forward to seeing you back in the near future for another visit and to see the newly renovated Penthouse Suite.

We stayed 9-23 9-25 September and It's an o.k. little place. The rooms were clean but small and housekeeping took our trash can so we didnt have anywhere to put our trash. Our room did have a small kitchenette but if you are going to use it be sure to take your own salt and pepper or anything else you might need because it's not provided. Overall it was o.k. and you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Don't get the rooms by the ice maker!

Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure hosting you and we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and felt that you got your money’s worth.
All the rooms do have full kitchens with glass-top ranges, microwaves, coffee makers, toasters, pots, pans and all the utensils need to prepare a meal. We unfortunately do not provide condiments like salt, pepper, sugar or spice’s to prepare the meals.
We do have great housekeepers that service the rooms daily, they will take out your trash, replace your towels, make your beds, and provide you with any additional services.

Thank you again for your review and we look forward to your next stay.

We were getting together with other family members. Booked this online and didn't really know what to expect but the main requisite was that it be on Gulf Blvd. When we read the reviews that expounded the cleanliness of the units we felt reassured that it would serve our purpose since it was such a short visit. However, we were pleased with accommodations and will not only make future reservations there but will also refer other family members. The location was perfect for our needs and we wished we had had more time to visit places like Fort DeSoto and the local winery, etc. Enjoyed the view of the bay and wildlife. We also really appreciated the complimentary upgrade.

Room Tip: Top (2nd) floor great for views (but not for handicapped). Stairs rather steep.

Thank you for very much for your review. I am very happy to hear that you were Pleasantly Surprised with your room. All our rooms are Suites with full kitchenettes and have been completely renovated this year. We are always working on improving our properties through continuous upgrades. I am also happy that you saw our friendly wildlife at the Bayview Plaza Waterfront Resort, we always get lots of Brown Pelicans, Blue Herons, White Egrets, Herring Gull, and lots of other birds who’s names I don’t even know, but this is definitely a great place for bird watching. We also get many dolphins and manatees that frequent our property.

Thank you again and I look forward to seeing you back with your family and friends.

We stayed here the last week in August 2011, our second time returning to this hotel. It is a great location, everything is close from restaurants, fishing, entertainment...etc. The hotel has upgraded a lot of things. We had the same room as last year, but they modernized the kitchenette area. Also they added nighttime underwater lights to the fishing docks which was a bonus to us as we like to relax by the bay with our rods in the water. First night there we hooked a big fish about 20-30 pounds. It was caught on a debarbed hook, and we released it after catching. Went to the "Meet & Greet" at the Beach Plaza hotel across the street and had free wine or beer and lots of good conversations with other guests. It's a nice way to find out what others have done and recommend is worthwhile. We did book a nighttime shark fishing trip but was cancelled due to high winds assuming from Hurricane Irene. Disappointed, but in no way put out as we just relaxed by the pool, walked along the beach, went mini golfing, the list of things to do is endless. This hotel is by far the best place in St. Pete's and the only place we will stay when in that area.

We booked this hotel on the internet and were not disappointed. The room was fine although a little on the small side but it was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Good value for the price. Check in was at the main office about a block away but as we were travelling without a vehicle we were happily driven to our room by one of the staff in their own vehicle which was much appreciated.

My husband did some major researching into where to stay in St. Pete Beach and the Plaza Beach Resorts came very highly rated on Trip Advisor. We chose to stay at the Bayview Plaza Waterfront Resort, because we wanted to be off the beach. We couldn't have asked for a better room. Top floor end unit, with a king bed and kitchenette. We had a great view of the waterway and woke to the sunrise every morning. One morning we even got to see manatees and dolphins on the bay. I loved the fact that this resort was more intimate, and we had use of all the beachfront amenities at Plaza Beach just a short walk down the street. A really nice touch was the beach umbrellas, and beach chairs that the Plaza Beach had available to use. You borrowed them on and honor code, and just returned them when you were done. We also enjoyed the "social hour" from 4-5. We will definitely return. The only bummer was having to leave after a short stay but we will definitely be back for a longer one! It was a great place for some well deserved R&R!!
