We stayed at the Bay Resort for 3 nights over the 4th of July weekend. We had our sons with us (age 14 and 11).
The hotel is a standard beach hotel. the room was very clean and the good size refridgerator is a plus. Our room faced the bay which was very pretty. The folks at the front desk were super friendly . We asked for a few extra pillows which were delivered immediately. The gentleman also gave us some good restaurant tips etc. The beach is a few block walk and there are several places to eat etc within walking distance (Grotto pizza, rita's etc).
Maybe it was just the weekend we were there (holiday) but the whole town was filled with young people intent on drinking all hours of the day and night. The first day we arrived, there was a group of young girls doing beer bongs by the pool. Another group played football in the morning while drinking beer. There are 2 nightclubs very close so there were often intoxicated young people wandering the streets. one day we watched two drunk young women fall off the dock into the bay (it's very shallow) and they could not get back out. It was really disgusting.
Trust me, my husband and I like to drink and party as well, but this was out of hand. after a while even my kids (who thought the antics were funny at first) got tired of drunks everywhere. Surprisingly, the room was fairly quiet and I only heard noice in the hallways once. The party crowd left beer cans, pizza boxes etc all over the grassy area, which the hotel always cleaned up very quickly.
So of course, this is not the hotel's fault. Just think twice if you are traveling with young kids etc as this is quite a party town. Rehoboth Beach is much more family friendly in my opinion.
Overall, I would definitely visit the Bay Resort again, just maybe not on a holiday weekend.
