We recently stayed at the Bay View for one night over Spring Break. Super nice doorman to help with parking, etc. Our room wasn't ready so we walked the board walk and had lunch and drinks and enjoyed the sights. I love that this hotel is on the board walk. We parked our car and didn't have to move it the whole time we were there. Also there were free DVD rentals in the lobby which was wonderful. The pool area was a little small for the amount of rooms. Quite a few unsupervised kids using the hot tub as a swimming pool. Overall the rooms were very nice and well appointed. We had a King oceanfront room. There was a mini fridge as well as a microwave and full sized coffee maker. No utensils were provided. Could have used a spoon to stir the coffee or packs of coffee to get started. Next time I will look for a hotel with a larger pool area, but nice overall.
