Ask to see the room first!! We walked in and left our paid room for somewhere else. Stains all over the carpet, blood splattered on the walls, and the smell was horrific... Ghetto people walking around. One father sitting by the pool wearing an ankle monitor. We felt unsafe immediately....

I don't normally post negative reviews.. for me it has to be pretty bad because most folks already have posted them... so no need. But seriously the pics posted are not representative of what we saw. The Pool is under construction and the rooms DO NOT look like the pictures!! At ALL! At the last minute we decided to not... More

Need I say more... Very questionable characters roaming the grounds. Loud fowl language. Lots of short term traffic in and out. Women out front getting in and out of cars with different men. Room was dirty and bugs. Doesn't take a genius to figure out what's going on in there. We left.

The bugs, they were everywhere, in the bathroom, on the beds and if you did not keep your stuff in the car the next morning you will have a nest of bugs. The sheets and towels were stained, the room the opposite of clean, the service bad and not friendly, the lamps broken, the TV from another era, the pool... More

First off, this motel is across the street from the former Knights Inn (which is now the Flamingo Hotel). I stayed one evening in May 2013. I'm impressed with this property because they make the effort. It's not perfect, but they try. The entire property is kept clean and in decent repair. The pool area is very attractive and there...

Stayed the night of March 12th. We started looking for a hotel rather late and this was the only one around the area for under $100, we paid $78 and the quality was not great, We thought it must be due to spring break but the manager said some sort of convention, but who really knows. Seemed clean enough. NO... More

We have been staying here on our yearly trips to the St Petersburg area over the last 8 years. Never had an issue until now. The hotel has changed hands a couple times over the years but generally clean, quiet, close to shopping, close to the beach. This visit we only stayed one night. Initially upon going into the room...

I have stayed many times at the Bayway over the past four or five years and have found it to be adequate. Fixtures and furniture may be a bit outdated, but the bathrooms were clean, the beds comfortable and the mini fridge sufficient for our drinks and snacks. I stayed there a month ago, and what a disappointment. I was... More
