My wife and I traveled to the Bay area to get married and our first stop was the Bay Palms Waterfront Resort. It felt like a second home to us. We loved the cozy feel of the room and the view of the waterway and marina behind us. We only stayed two nights there this trip and would most certainly...

The Bay palms waterfront exceeded all of our expectations... It was like having our own little beach house, they have thought of everything! And the staff is so nice and thoughtful. It made our honeymoon even more special. This place is a gem!

This is a small (only 7 rooms), quiet and well-run little hotel on the boat harbor side. It is right next door to another small hotel owned by the same people, and across the street and a block away from a hotel on the beach side also owned by the same folks. (Note: That is where you check in and...

We're local residents, but were having flooring replaced in our home and stayed a few days at Bay Palms to escape the dust. We had a fantastic, low key stay. The waterfront area was scenic and relaxing, and the 1 BR unit we booked was very roomy and comfortable, much more like home than a typical hotel. We will highly...

We arrived at about 3 to check in. The office has a sign in the door stating that the office is closed and you must check in down the street at one of their sister properties. Not a good start. Hotel was pet friendly, which was a plus. The room was very small and bathroom was also very small. The...

We had a great time with family and friends during our stay at Bay Palms Waterfront Resort! The staff was so attentive, especially Katie Wilcox! She is very professional and kind!

Nice hotel, nice pool and dock on an intercoastal waterway. minor things needed repair, such as bathroom door handle was loose, pull out couch mattresses could use to be replaced. Had a minor incident at check-in that was dealt with immediately and to our satisfaction. Parking was limited and on a busy street.
