I checked in on a business trip. The A/C was broken in the lobby so it was stuffy in the lobby. Luckily the rooms were fully functional. All in all the room was ok. Nothing special to praise or complain about. The breakfast would have been better if it was all ready at the time it was supposed to be...

The staff were all very friendly. The room clean and welcoming. Glad they accommodate for pets. So close to the beach and many other places. The breakfast was so much more than other places. Very relaxing...really enjoyed the hot tub and exercise room. A great experience.

Carpet clean but wearing out. Could be replaced. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Convieniently located as you come into town near shopping and beaches. Breakfast included...fair. Nothing to brag about. Would probably stay again unless I find something better for the money. Poor internet service.

When I got in my room, the first bed's cover had a couple of stains. Which, I think is disgusting. Luckily, the second bed had no stains and I chose that bed to sleep in. The white shower curtain had brown stains on the bottom (4" worth) and various brown stains throughout. It should have been thrown out or bleached...

We booked 7 rooms for a family reunion and used the conference room for our lunch. It was a very comfortable place to stay, breakfast was included, and some of the family members enjoyed the pool. We found Bay Inn to be a very nice place to stay, with comfortable rooms and easy to sleep. We would stay again next...

Room and the Pool areas were both nice, no problems there. I don't what is wrong in with the WiFi in this place but when we first checked in you couldn't connect at all, the guy at the front desk ended up resetting the modem. At least we could connect although we had to reconnect every 10 - 15 min....

Stayed at the Crow's Nest in 2015 and it was ok. Clean, neat and quiet. I'll go back this year and check it out again. It's not the Holiday Inn, but you are not paying HI prices either. Close to the beach and downtown.

This was my first event to plan and when I called, Kenny answered and was very helpful and knowledgeable and polite. When I went to the hotel to pay for the reservation, Michael was just as helpful, knowledgeable and polite. It was a very good experience for me
