5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I stayed for work one night and found everything to be nicer than I expected. The employees were kind and helpful. The manager helped me out when the cab company wouldn't answer their phone and I had to get to work in the morning. The room was clean with good amenities, the sodas were reasonably priced, the pool and fountains were lovely and breakfast was plentiful. This was my first experience at a Baymont and it left a good impression on me.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

My family stayed here for a funeral in May, 2013. We had 3 double queen rooms that were basically clean. This hotel is best described as average. It was adequate for our needs, but definitely nothing special. The beds were firm and the sheets seemed clean (except for the mattress pad that was stained and looked like it hadn't been changed in quite a while). There is a sign prominently displayed on the room doors stating that the rooms had been "inventoried" and that I would be charged for any missing items - yet, the room only had 3 bath towels (in a room for 4 adults) and the ice bucket was missing. The TV worked occasionally at best. I called down to maintenance and they sent someone up to change out the cable, however this did little to fix the problem. Turns out they were having trouble with the satellite, but just remarked that it "happens" sometimes and made no apologies or attempts to fix it. The breakfast was sub-par. There were few items available and the ones that were available were fairly tasteless. I would only stay here again if I got a really good price and it was for a very short time.
