“Best kept secret”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2010

I had a few spare days and decided to go the beach. Read the reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to give the Bay Resort a try. I was extremely pleased the air in the room was on when I entered, the room very clean and fresh, large white towels in the bath.
The day I checked out I was able to leave my car parked in their lot until afternoon. They also offered use of the pool and outside shower. The hotel staff was Aplus...extremely friendly in a natural way. Best believe I am coming back!

PS> Beds and pillows were very comfortable !!

We had a beautiful unit overlooking the bay. It was kept very clean and the staff was very nice and friendly. We had balcony and small refr and stove. It was big enough for me to make breakfast and sandwiches for the beach. Only problem is the beach within walking distance does not have any restrooms at all. As it was way to far to walk back, we used the public beach instead.

Just got back from a 5 day stay at Bay resort. This is definitely not a "resort" but it is a nice motel. The rooms seemed clean, the staff was extremely friendly and happy to help with any questions. There was a nice outdoor pool although not heated it was warm enough for the kids to enjoy while we were there. The cleaning people did a fantastic job. One day we left dishes to be washed when we got back from the beach, but when we got back we found the cleaning people to have done them even though this is not one of their responsibilities when cleaning the room. We had no issues with noise and the motel is located on a nice, quiet street.
There were a couple of things we didn't like. Even though the rooms seemed clean the carpet was very dirty. After walking in our bare feet for a couple of minutes our feet would be black with dirt so I would advise bringing a pair of slippers. The pictures on the website were a little deceiving. We were under the impression there was a nice beach with access to swimming in the bay. This IS NOT the case. There is a sandy area in front of some stagnant water that smelled terrible and the water would not have been fit to swim in, but there is only a short, 5 minute walk down the road to the beach access.
Overall this was a good place for the price we paid. We were looking for an inexpensive place with an efficiency kitchen and it worked for us.

when calling the motel I was a little unsure of the product. However the front desk agent was wonderfull. He answered all my questions and worked with me because we were a group of six so we needed 3 double beded rooms. The motel is clean and sits on the bay with wonderfull views. The location is the best with everything in an easy walk away.

This is not a resort what it is, is a good hotel in a great location. Lots of people pool and they clean your room and the rooms are decent. What else do you want??? I only sleep in the room and other stuff but I was never in it.

Love tha place

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2009

Just spent 3 nights at The Bay Resort. It is not a resort but it is a CLEAN, pleasant motel with small pool & bright rooms with comfy beds. We had bay view room which I highly recommend - private balcony with 2 chairs & small table. Enjoyed our breakfasts there watching the gulls on the pier & water. Enjoyed pretty sunset over bay one night.
Front desk staff were friendly, grounds nicely kept (pretty flowers) & got lots of fresh towels daily.

Kitchette equipped with basics including dishes, glasses, etc. for 4, coffeemaker, small fridge, stove/oven, MW, etc. - even dish detergent & dish towel. Bathroom was very basic & small (older motel) and no shampoo provided (just soap).

Short walk to beach. Overall, great for a beach weekend & beatiful view if you opt for for bay view room!
