Thought it seemed really cheap - but we checked it out and you do get what you pay for. Horrible, smelly, moldy rooms. After switching to different rooms twice we got our money back - we had booked through Hotels.com - who helped us. Manager said they were going to remodel - they should be CLOSED until then and I...

My husband and I checked in for our anniversary two days ago. The reviews scared me but we already booked and it's non-refundable. We figured if it was horrible we would go elsewhere. We thought they were closed since we were the only ones there. We expected the worst but our check-in went smoothly, the room was basic but clean... More

Bay Shore Inn was absolutely disgraceful! First off, the owners spoke very broken English and barely understood anything we said. The pool was dirty and cloudy, we could not even see the bottom. There were bugs and a huge spider and when we asked the management to remove the spider, they said no, but then once asked again, he did.... More

Went to visit Put n Bay, most of hotels on islands were booked for the weekend I wanted. Went up for first time with my husband and another couple, so we had no idea what to expect. I'm not picky at all, but the Bayshore inn was dirty, and old. Couldn't use pool the whole time because of pump issues... More

I read the some of the review on this site before I booked away because the price was so good. I don't know what a lot of people are complaining about the rooms are clean and comfortable. My room had a new fridge and microwave not something 50 years old. Its no Hilton but for the price it was good.... More

After looking for a last minute hotel, Bayshore had openings, for less than 100 bucks....seemed to good to be true! And it was! Hotel room was smelly, old and out dated. Toilet ran on and off all night, wall was starting to buckel near bathroom, toilet handle was cracked, chairs in room had stains, sheets had stains. Dead bugs around... More

This Days Inn has been bought and changed to Bayshore Inn and Suites. Do not stay here. It is old and gross. There was a sign saying grand opening, yet the wall paper in our room was being held up in several places by packing tape. We were told that there was free wifi and when we couldnt connect, we...
