I attended a wedding at the Plaza Beach hotel and we stayed at the Bayview Plaza Waterfront across the street on the bay side. Our room was clean - really nice travertine bathroom & shower, great little patio to enjoy the bay breezes at night and friends staying in the same hotel fished at night off the pier. The huge success was a BIG grouper!!! The wedding was lovely, the hotel comfortable and we were impressed with the overall hospitality. I would definitely stay again at this location.

Thank you so much for your Wonderful review of the Bayview Plaza Waterfront Resort. The wedding at the Plaza Beach Hotel was absolutely beautiful with the sunset in the background. I’m happy to hear that fishing was very successful off our piers, especially catching a grouper. Thank you for posting a picture of the property and I look forward to seeing you back again soon.

This resort was perfect for me. I wanted peace, quiet, a pool and a beautiful view and beach access. I got this, plus a very clean, comfortable room. i will return.

Room Tip: balcony rooms are quieter--because they're off-street.

We were just coming from 5 days at the "Tradewinds Grand Island" with a Northerly view of the property and Gulf in the distance (7th Floor) The Bayview was a welcomed change much quieter. The accommodations were similar but Bayview has a cooktop as well the Balcony (rm 732) is shaded nicely from 3:00pm on. We are NOT sun worshipers. visits from a great blue heron at low tide as wellas 2 small blue heron were delightful, watching them fish in the shallows. The steps are a slight inconvenience but the balcony or small deck makes it worthwhile. The mattress quality wasn't quite as good, but adequate. For about 1/2 the price it was really fine! One neighbor below us was smoking and using foul language which was unpleasant, but the other folks were friendly and considerate. One takes a risk of having bad neighbors anyplace. We enjoyed our 2 days. The AC units are among the quietest I've experienced a nice split system, not a "window" AC great temp control too. Grace & Peace

Room Tip: If you want a view, pick one of the rooms on the waterfront.

Stayed here just one night after two nights at bay palm due to availability. This resort is just as nice as Bay Palms, it is right next door and shares the property. Both of these resorts offer everything you need for a wonderful bay area vacation. This is the place to stay for a St. Pete Beach Vacation. I Will be back in the spring.

Well it's that time of the year again for a vacation. Time to visit my room at the Bayview Plaza for year number 12. Wow it has a new paint job and new lighting some new carpentry a BIG BIG BIG flat screen tv, New ac unit. they improved an already nice room for the better.

Outside we have a newly designed tile stone patio, pool area, additional docks all the comforts to do nothing but RELAX and soak up the sun.

OOPs its 4:00 Cocktail Hour at the main hotel The Plaza Beach, Free, and to meet the other guests
get to know the other familys on vacation.

Back at the bay view, We meet the same family as last year when we stayed here. Nice the see you again Steve and Kim.

Fishing every day sometimes twice a day. Grouper about 12 lbs. and cat fish and mutton and spotted sea trout (weak fish for you northerners) pompanow and snook some guy even hooked up on a dolphin by mistake.

weather is great, 85/65 sometimes a little windy but the sun is HOT HOT HOT!

There is an inlet about 1 mile down the road in Pass A Grille go there to fish at least once.

Come here, enjoy yourself, relax and shed a tear when you must leave. Family treating you like Family
thats how it is. I already booked 2013 and extended it by 4 days. Can't get enough of this place.

I must admitt I put on 8lbs by eating at all the great restuarants in the area You gota go to PJ"S Oyster Bar at 7500 Gulf Blvd. Best Burgers and Crabs ever.!

Room Tip: They all are good it's just what you want to see out the window.

My wife and I just spent 2 nights @ The Bayview Plaza ans were thoroughly impressed. We' ve stayed at The Siraty, The Grand Plaza, and TheBeachcomber. We will definitly stay At The Bayview Plaza before any of the others.. We loved being on the bay. It was nice and quiet but we still had a water view. The happy hour was a very nice touch. The staff was very nice. Thank you Bayview........

Room Tip: Bayside balcony was AWESOME!!!!!!!!

My family and I just returned from the Bayview Plaza, RIGHT on the bay, directly accross from St. Petersburgh beach. It is NOT a full service resort, it does not deserve the name "motel" but it is more along those lines. The rooms have been very tastefully redone. They are spotless! The backyard is GORGEOUS! Beautiful view of the bay, extensive decking, again in immaculate condition, one of the most peaceful settings I have ever experienced. The pool though simple, was maitained to perfection, both cleanliness and temperature. The property is quiet but the main resorts with beach bars are just accross the street, you can go over there, have a drink, enjoy the sunset and then come back home! I also happen to be a travel agent and would highly reccommend this property,
