I have been staying here several times a year for a few years now. The staff treat you like your part of the family. The rooms have everything you can imagine from the kitchenette to the linens. Also always Extremly clean and you call they are right there.

Room Tip: I always have a bunch of soda and snacks leftover which I offer to neighboring guest. And everyone d...

We stayed for four nights. Bay Palms is one of three properties operated by the same family business (Plaza Beach Resorts). It is on the Boca Ciega Bay (not the beach side) and has small pool and a great fishing/dining deck. You can walk down the block and across the street to use the beach and bigger pool (and all other facilities) at Plaza Beach.

Rooms are efficiencies with a kitchenette, living area, bedroom and bathroom. Bathroom is small. The place is decorated like old Florida -- pastels, cement dolphin statues in the parking lots and such. It reminds me of the places I stayed as a child in the 1960s.

The only problem with Bay Palms is the parking. You have to pull in from and back in to traffic on Gulf Blvd. It's tight and limited. One night we came in late and had to park at the Bay Plaza and walk.

Great location. Easy walk to beach and restaurants and shops.

There is no regular housekeeping. They don't clean rooms or make beds while you are there. You can get beach towels and clean towels as you need them.

We will return.

Thank you so much for the feed back! We’re glad you had a great stay overall and plan to come back and see us. We love being a part of your new tradition. We’re sorry you experienced issues with the parking. We try to make the best with what we have, so we’re glad that you were able to find a spot at one of the other two parking spots we have between the three properties. If you ever experience issues like that again, please let us know and we will be there to make sure a spot becomes available to you. Every guest is guaranteed one spot at their hotel no matter what.

We look forward to your next stay! Please give us a call and we’ll make sure to take care of you as a repeat guest.

My room wasn't ready when I got there, and after I called the front desk, they gave me a better room, much larger and beach front. They helped with everything and the stay was perfect for not an expensive rate!

Found this hotel when all others were full after Hurricane Irma. LOVED IT !!! Clean rooms, comfy beds, nice pool and right on the beach. Staff was very nice!! Rooms have small kitchenettes and full size refrigerators. Only negative is no housekeeping during stay. They will swap out towels but not make beds or clean rooms.

If ever back in area I would definitely stay here ago as it was very reasonably priced considering it is right in the beach !!!
