We had stayed in the Princess Bayside many years ago, so thought it was safe to make the decision to stay again. BOY WAS THAT A MISTAKE!!!! The hotel was very run down & unkept. The rugs in the common hallways are all worn & smell. The elevators smell terrible. The staff transports the trash in the same elevator that... More

I checked into the hotel on August 27, 2015 and I went into the bathroom to find pubic hair on the toilet seat, an indication that the toilet had not been cleaned. The tub as was discolored, worn looking and looked dirty. The towels were dirty, face clothes, dry towels and hand towels. I have never experienced anything like this.... More

The lobby is very nice so I was hopeful. The room was a little disappointing. The (foldout) sofa didn't have any sheets on it but it did have a bottle of water wedged between the cushions.The sofa was so worn looking that I don't think the Goodwill would except it. The staff was very friendly.

DO NOT STAY HERE. They will scam you. A group of us booked 2 nights at the hotel for my cousins bachelor party. We arrived Friday night at about 8:00. Upon arrival we checked in, moved into our room, and stayed there until about 10 when we headed out for the night. We returned to the room around 3:00 AM.... More

BEWARE! Read this and know that you have been warned. As you can see via TripAdvisor this hotel has and average rating of 2 stars. There are many reasons to justify this rating but my reason may save you $2,000. The Bait: I booked the Princess Bayside for two nights (Fri/Sat) as it is obviously a convenient location right next... More

The hotel was very clean which is always a plus for any hotel! Very pretty place and a great location, next to Seacrets! I would definitely stay at this hotel again. I came here with my daughter and her friends for her birthday and we had a great time!

Indoor pool might as well be outdoor. It's dark cold and has poor air circulation. The 2 separate buildings is so inconvenient on so many levels. Room layout is ok. They charge for any more than 2 adults but you're not getting anything more for the extra fee. First time here and won't be back.

Princess Bayside does a wonderful job each year accommodating our Annual Girls Weekend Group! This July was our 17th year at the Princess Bayside and our stay has always been very pleasant! Dawn the Group coordinator and Barbara at the front desk as well as the rest of the staff are always extremely helpful and very friendly! They go out... More

I would not recommend this hotel for the following reasons: 1. Online booking is frustrating. We had to call the hotel desk, where they provided multiple prices. 2. Hotel WiFi is very slow, where you better off using your phone data plan. and connection to the laptop wireless or Android is frustrating. Furthermore, there is no hard-wire data connection in...

Let me start this off by telling you that I have never written a review for anything. I feel that this hotel and especially the head of security was so ignorant that I have to tell people. Little background about the trip and my friends and I: I am a police officer in a very busy city. I see and... More
