We stayed at the Bayshore inn for one night while doing business. It was comfortable and clean. The tv stations were abit muddled. So the tvs need to be retuned. I did not have a cooked breakfast but had some fresh fruit, juice and some cereal. It was all fine. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Christmas buffet, what a disappointment! I think wimpy would have served a better meal than what was presented by The Bayshore inn today. Waited more than 25min for our first drinks order to arrive, then when we wanted to dish up we were met by near empty trays (which stayed like that for nearly 40min) the food was poor, over... More

Improper lighting in rooms and walkways insufficiently lit. WiFi only in the lobby. Food is average to good. Courteous staff. Housekeeping is very good. Check-in if you don't have any alternate options.

I stayed at the inn on a Sunday, and then the following Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. On the Sunday I was booked into my own little cottage - was very nice. Spacious, clean and generally no complaints. The other two nights, however, I was booked into a room in a building that was very university residence-like. Two single beds, no... More
