Had sandwich & fries which were both cold. I think there are better choices in area for a couple more bucks. Real Seafood is great & have not tried Berger's close to BV lately. Real Seafood has good fish if that is your taste. Jets Pizza is probably best in area and delivers.

Stayed here last weekend on a bowling trip. The first night (a Friday), it was quiet and nice. This hotel does need updating - it is aging a bit. If you want a microwave or fridge, it is $5 extra a night for each. The king bed in my room was older, sat a bit low to the ground and... More

I stayed to visit family in December and it was my first stay at Bay Valley in nearly 15 years and I don't think much has changed as far as the property is concerned. Very old rooms, but also quite clean. The people were great and the service in the bar as well as the food quality was very good.... More

My husband, myself and our two little children went to Heatherfield's, the restaurant inside of Bay Valley resort for dinner specifically for the fish fry Friday. There were 2 waitresses on staff and a bartender. I must say that the food was great, but the service was the worst I have ever experienced! It took 10 minutes to get a... More

10/3/14, stayed 2 nights. When I checked in, I asked if there was a back entrance close to my room, and was told, “No”. Clerk said I needed to come in the front door, and go down the steps. After hauling my bag down those stairs, I had to lug it up another flight of stairs, go down a long... More

I reviewed this before and gave it 3 stars/circles. I'm lowering my review today. This place is just going downhill and I don't think anyone can stop it without investing a good amount of money. It wasn't the worst place I've stayed at but I think you can get more for your money elsewhere. I think my stay previously at... More

Absolutely terrible! Old, dirty and moldy. No fridge, no microwave and no proper shower curtain. Dirty GLASS CUPS. There was mold in the bathtub and in the toilet. The carpet looked as though it had not seen a vacuum in years let alone a carpet cleaner. There was one large size area but the ac that a vacuum would not... More

I stayed here on a business trip with a group. The motel is old but clean. There are a lot of different hallways to get to the rooms that are on three floors. Make sure you get good directions to your room. The room seems to have been painted and new carpet installed but the furniture is old and scratched... More

I was trying to think of something postive from our one week stay so I could write the good and bad. Unfortunately, I have nothing positive to say. When we arrived at the hotel the pot holes in the parking lot woke up our sleeping children in our car. The foyer area by the ballrooms smelled like a beer soaked... More
