Once stopped by and asked about rooms ; place seemed shabby and owner arrogant. Went by when friends stayed there and if you think the rooms are bad , go downstairs. Weekly rentals remind me of the drug dens of Asia , right under your hotel room. Other nearby to avoid are the El Patio ( crime and drug sales... More

We made a reservation at the Bayfront Inn after looking at their website. Once we arrived, we noticed the hotel was nothing like what was posted on the website. Upon entering the hotel room we were hit with an unbelievable stench. The paint was chipped, carpet was dirty, the t.v. didn't work and everything was outdated. We had a sense... More

This was the absolute worst experience. Better business bureau and health department should shut this place down. Service was horrible. The manager understood NOTHING we were saying but had plenty to say. Apparently large maintenance ladders are safe to have in the pool area as well as the pool vacuum in the pool while patrons are swimming. We were told... More

I chose this hotel because every other decent hotel in town was booked for the dates we needed. I found their website and it looked like an acceptable hotel with all the conveniences you'd expect from a good hotel. However, I found that online hotel shopping, much like online dating, can result in real world disappointments. We walked into our... More

We were traveling with a group and had planned our trip well in advance (5 months). When we arrived at the motel I was told that my reservation had been cancelled. I said I did not cancel the room and was told that the computer does not lie, people do. So much for customer service. The only rooms available were... More

I have been going there for years. Prices have soared in past year. Not too clean but adequate. But the staff is RUDE and accusatory. Insinuated that a friend stole the towels when room was reassigned because the lights did not work. Big sign in room warning guests about taking their property. They threatened tto charge for the towels for... More

The hotel room seemed nice, but as soon as I walked in it had a weird smell and tried to turn on the lights they wouldnt come on. Went to plug the lights and the clock in and there was no outlet near them. Me and my friend went back to Waldameer while my mom stayed there. When we returned... More

I wish I had read the reviews. I couldn't even get a room that I had reserved (turned out to be a blessing). A young lady who spoke very little English said the owners were in Cleveland. She couldn't process my reservation or give me a room, so I left. And they charged me!! And now of course I can't... More
