“Lisa and Jesse Rock!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Bay Cove is squeaky clean, has a great sandy waterfront dock, and GREAT value! Almost all our needs were met for $66 per night, the only problem being No Pets. Fortunatly, our dog had accomodations with family.

Room Tip: Re: Room #2- could've had bigger bed

Southern Florida at its best,

cheap, great service, charming guests, very relaxing.... nice, though older rooms, good atmosphere..... all very much down to earth.... we very much felt at home.... next time we visit the area we will definitely stay for a night or two... the location for trips around Key Largo and the rest of the Keys is perfect and affordable....

We were on our way to Fantasy Fest and Lisa and I talked on the phone before we made the reservations. She was very honest and up front about the construction going on BEFORE we booked. We were surprised at the unpredicted charm of the place. IT IS Southern Florida and most places have a simple southern charm! It is NOT a corporate Hotel it is a Motel. The rooms were very clean, and tidy. The kitchen in the house was very well equipped to cook if need be. Lisa the manager had brochures and papers available for us to see what there was near by and in Key West. I was very pleased and we WILL definately stay there again. The pictures were representative of the place without the construction going on of course. Thanks again Lisa..

Was going to stay at this motel based on the pictures at their website. The place looks nothing like the pictures. It is shabby, rundown and didn't look safe to stay at. I couldn't recommend it to anyone. Some cleaning up and fresh paint might help. I wonder which motel pictures they used on their website?

Very rustic. No real beach. Good dock. Outside - Not enough chairs, some broken, others always taken. Nice friendly folks and I guess you pay for what you get. But they need to refab the place as it has potential.

I chose this motel because it was close to diving and cheap. I had no idea what the room looked like until I checked in because I was staying at another hotel and wanted to stay another night but they could not accommodate me.
Upon arrival, staff was friendly and courteous. The room was clean with the exception of a cockroach on the floor which is to be expected in South Florida and the Key.
The floor was clean enough but the grout on the tile needs to be cleaned better.
Bathroom was clean
A/C worked.
Bathroom really small but clean.
Old time blanket on bed, which I didn't think was clean but I brought my own sheets, blanket and pillow.
Good for short trips 1-3 nights maybe. Rooms need to be upgraded.
Friendly staff and cheap prices

Our room was nice. Little cottages, nice beds large showers (if you are taller than five foot three you have to duck a bit). I found great pleasure in the quirky landscaping. Local flora mixed with exotics in charming xeriscape groupings. Each cottage is painted with small murals of local wildlife and comes with out door picnic settings. Our time there was delightful in every way. The
beachfront area is small but affords all access to the gulf by boat
, swimming or snorkeling. Bay Cove is very affordable so make your reservations early and enjoy.
