“Party central for Rama Concerts ~ Bring bleach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

Hi.. Had a great time booked 2 rooms .. a little pricey for what you get.. .
Saw AIC at Rama.. amazing
Room # 8 was a Smoking room it was nasty..Toilet seat was broken in # 8 and #17
i had to go to Dollar tree to buy bleach to clean the bathroom walls.
They were running with nicotine..
The Grounds could use some work..paint job need attention.. pull weeds and dead flowers.. clean up Butts and provide ashtrays outside.

Room Tip: I couldn't get Wifi to work.. Rooms are very small .. do not try and fit 4 adults into the lower...

This is a average Inn with average quality service.
When my husband and I arrived late afternoon the office appeared to be closed and we had to phone the number left on the note hanging on the door to have someone come and greet us to sign in.
We were charged in full apon check in which I found strange also assigned a non smoking room which had a faint smell to it as well as a burn mark in the carpet - the rooms are not well ventilated as the windows do not open so the only way to get fresh air is to leave your entrance door wide open.
Cleanliness of the room was below average we found dust on the headboard of the bed and soap scum on the walls in the shower.
The room has a fridge and microwave but No Coffee Maker! Very disappointed about that. Doesn't make sense to have all other standard small appliances and no coffee available. The parking lot provided was confusing "park anywhere" creates blocking other guests vehicles.
Very basic Very blah I would opt to pay the extra $40 to stay at the better known chain hotels and indulge in the customer service provided by them especially their contential breakfast & unlimited Coffee!
I do not recommend this place treat yourself to a higher quality experience.

How comforting to be greeted like an old friend by the staff. Even on short notice they always find me a room, usually my favorite one. Always clean and neat.7-8 min away from Casino Rama, subway and wild wing near by.

To me, if I just need someplace to sleep it needs to be clean, comfortable & inexpensive. This hotel fit the bill. For the few hours spent in the room it was perfect. Comfortable bed, flat screen tv, nice shower, and fair sized fridge in room for food & drinks. Not fancy decor or exterior, but that's not important to me. It's a $20 cab ride each way to Rama if you don't want to drive. Would stay again if going to check out another concert.

Room Tip: stayed in 15, last room up top. Neighbour only on one side. Shower decent.

When I booked a room at the Bayview Inn I was surprised and a little worried about the low price - $50 for one person – but this is what I found: a modern clean room with fridge and microwave, comfortable bed (and a quiet heater). The Inn is not far from dowtown Orillia and a short walk to a Tim Hortons, Subway, KFC and the Grover Family Restaurant (which I recommend). Across the street is a multi-use path and it’s a very short walk to a large park right on Lake Couchiching. If you’re looking for a nice place at an excellent value for an overnight stay I certainly recommend the Bayview Inn.

Stayed there last night after a concert at Rama. $24 cab ride to the casino from there. 10 minute drive.

Good sized rooms that were super clean. Big LCD tv and quiet. Will definitley stay here any time I go up there again. With the loot you save you can gamble more!

It's too bad that tripadvisor doesn't even provide you with the phone number for here since they don't make any money off it. Makes me shamed that all my free reviews are now going to booking dot com so TA can get a kick back but they leave out these places because there's nothing in it for them.

Room Tip: They offer smoking and non-smoking
