Really wanted to love this place but many major flaws. First, the staff was amazing and super friendly. Our room was clean but the bed was hard as a rock. The bathroom was odd. Shower could only fit a person 5'8 or under. The sink and tub was bright red, very strange. The cosmetic mirror was hung so low you had to squat to use it. Construction outside was a continuous generator which was annoying but not the Inns fault. Most disturbing was on 2 separate occasions we were served dirty mugs at breakfast. One clearly had lipstick on it and another on day 2 had food. I really questioned how a clearly dirty glass gets served. On a positive note rest of the premises and rooms were clean. The view and grounds are beautiful. I'm so torn on this review. Actually 2.5 stars is more accurate.

Our stay was utterly refreshing and rejuvenating with the serene sights of the bay and sunsets every day. Staff was extremely courteous, and friendly, attending to any needs we had. Loved the food, breakfasts especially, any time coffee/tea and soft drinks. Our room had a balcony with beautiful view of the bay. Masks were expected in the lobby area.

One of the best experiences we've had away from home. It's not on the cheap end of hotels but it's totally worth it. When everything around us feels so uncertain, we found our stay at Stafford's Bay View a time to relax and enjoy. even if we did have to wear masks. That's a very small price to pay for the chance to catch our breath before a very busy season.
