The Bay Motel

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Ventilation in the room and cleanliness
Not a good experience! There was a stench in the room that we could not stomach! Unfortunately we paid before we visited the room otherwise we would have left right away. So we paid but decided not to stay and started looking for other accommodation. An expensive venture. Our recommendation: Stay away!

Worst Expedia experience ever

Tiny room 7' x 12' including the bathroom . Green water, dirty towels, ceiling fan coated in dust. I stripped the bed, slept in my clothes and my sleeping bag, stuffed a sweater with other clothing to use as a pillow. #yuck

on-line booking versus chance!

Posted Oct 9, 2015
Booked on-line for 'special rate' "only one room left" for the so-called 'reduced rate' of that time, so that my 80 year old husband would be sure to have a room after 7 hours of driving. When he got there, the motel was virtually vacant and a sign out front advertising the same 'single' room for 25% less than the price that we pre-paid. They would not make any adjustment on the price. This will be a regular trip for us to a N. Cobalt destination but we will NEVER book ahead, the advertising on-line is misleading and totally incorrect.

The staff very friendly. Room and bathroom are clean. Price very reasonable. I go back there anytime. The only isdue is the slight smell that comes out when the sink tap is running. I guess time to clean the septic tank. Other than that. I enjoyed my stay. Thank you.

Manager very polite and accommodating. You get what you pay for: a cheap, basic room for the night. Clean but very dated room with cheaper furniture and thin walls. Plumbing/heating/ a/c worked.

Loved our stay!!

Cons: Towels are only provided upon request....was unaware of this until later in the evening. Towels should be in the room or people should be notified.
Friendly, courteous staff. Clean, bright, spacious room. Big Tv...beautiful bedding, nice furniture. Loved our stay and will definitely be using this place again for any future stays. Highly recommended to anyone who doesn't want a huge drain on the pocket book but still wants a nice comfortable place to rest your head.

As it says, 90 bucks all in for two beds. Beats paying twice that for a place that smells bad and was full of bed bugs.

Very out of the way, and very rustic.

Cons: There is not a hair dryer in the room, so bring your own. Towels are a bit "thin", so not the thick, luxurious ones you find in higher end hotels.
Location: Nothing to do nearby, need to drive into town for anything, including meals.
Wood paneling and small TV from 1980 - kind of threw me off at first, as I am a bit spoiled when it comes to hotels. My first reaction was "OMG, I have booked into the Bates Motel"! However, the room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Lots of hot water. The satellite wasn't working, but the owner came in and took the time to properly fix it. Their satellite system has time zone shifting, so could watch almost anything. It is a bit out of town, so there are no amenities close by.

Pros: The price as chep, and on Hwy 11.
Cons: The outside and inside doesn't match. The inside is clean but feel old.
Location: Great because it is directly on Hwy 11.
I enjoy the fact that it was inexpensive, easy access, and quiet.
