I don't normally take the time to write reviews

This hotel is extremely tired. It is really not a resort at all but a motel situated right beside a CN railway track (and I mean RIGH BESIDE) and a gravel (not sand) beach on the other. Sparrow Lake is lovely and has beautiful sunrises, so that was a positive. Rooms are from the 1960's, our kids ended up with bed bug bites all around their neck and hairlines after the first night. Shabby curtains are held shut with masking tape (not kidding - there were little strips of it all along the window frame). Wooden deck off the room was rotting, the towels are like sand paper and the main dining room is dark and dingy. Add to that the price (no food just accommodations) and we were extremely disappointed. Would NEVER recommend this hotel to anyone. Now, having said that, our kids didn't mind all of the things I've mentioned above (but we adults certainly did) and actually quite enjoyed the beach and access to all of the water toys. I have to admit that there was tons for the kids to do (playground - nice actually, beach with shallow water entry, sand toys, water trampoline, kayaks, canoes, etc.) so that was actually a very nice feature. Having said that, it will be a dark day in hell before we return to Bayview Wildwood.
