Nice motel close to beach and restaurants.

Posted Feb 12, 2018
Pros: Convenient location. Nice swimming pool area.
Cons: The outside of the motel could use some cleaning up and fresh coat of paint.

Bed was comfortable and clean. It was a good experience.

Great Pet Hotel

Posted Feb 6, 2018
This will be our new place to stay. Rooms were great, clean, and spacious. I like that housekeeping does not come into your room every day. Will stay again. Called check in to request first floor room and normally get “Not sure but I’ll put a note “. Samantha said I have you down. She remembered when I checked in.

Needs some updating and maintainance

Posted Feb 3, 2018
Pros: The staff is friendly and helpful but limited in what they can do in correcting some issues
Cons: The older “winter birds” with pets will like the place just as it is but the place needs some updating and rooms where pet odors and 100% smoke free
Older couples with pets will like the place but the pet odors in my room was too much. Every room had outdoor sitting area with ash trays but all the ash trays were full. For a non smoker is was not very pleasant. Needs some work. TV had a bad screen, fridge made a lot of noise and the shower controls didn’t work. Non smoking room but there was cigarette burns in the tub.

Looking forward to going back.

Posted Jan 30, 2018
Pros: It was clean, close to everything I wanted to do.
Location: I love going to the Rbar for a bite and a drink. Mike Calzone plays on Friday nights. He is fun.
I made my reservation at 7 p.m. and was checking in 15 minutes later. The process was super easy. The grounds were very well kept. Checkout was a breeze and the woman at the counter was very friendly. I look forward to spending more time there in the future.

What Kind of Joint Is This?

Posted Jan 20, 2018
The pics look nice. Then I roll up. "Sorry babe, guess I didn't get a nice hotel." Is what I said before I notice the darkened door of the reception area. "Great... One of these places." Yeah I didn't even get to check in. Stay away.

I'm sorry this happened for you. Our hotel is open 9 am to 7 pm. It states this on the site. We do make arrangements for after hours check in. There is also a sign on the door with after hours phone number. I would like a chance to find out about this, if you could contact the hotel, I'd really appreciate it. I don't want this to happen again.

Decent place to stay

Posted Jan 18, 2018
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was nice, fairly updated. Bathroom-a little dated but decent enough. Shower faucet felt like you were going to pull out of wall turning on and shower went from scalding to freezing and back. Impossible to keep at one temp. Pet friendly and good location for across road from beach Laundry to do your own wash-skip. Find a laundromat. Dryer never didn’t get things dry and smelled musty. Hs to rewash all items at laundromat

Thank you for choosing Bayside Inn and Marina. Unfortunately the time you were here we were sold out and couldn't upgrade you but the room you booked was the samllest most economical. May in the future you will give us another try and maybe you will like it better.
