We booked a non-smoking room but smelled a lil smokey when we first walked in. The tv is still an analog tv. Online it says there's a coffee pot in the room but they make coffee in the morning & provide donuts. It also says there's wi-fi but it's only guaranteed in the lobby. The pillows are flat & there...

We needed a room over Father's Day and didn't want to spend much $. Now we wish we had spent a bit more to upgrade. We slept ok, but clearly this place needs major work. The pics are nicer than what is really there. It wasn't dusty, but was musty with stains on carpet, mattresses, toilet and bath. The wallpaper... More

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
