First management I guess was stealing by charging everyone cash then took off with everything. When the new management showed up they introduced themselves and seemed very nice. They asked me if I would be back the next week and I said yes. I picked up my own room and left tips for the thieves before them but forgot to... More

The Hotel is under New Management and every effort will be made to keep the hotel rooms clean, fresh, new towels and sheets. Great rates. Please give us a try again. We have new items such as towels, sheets, flat screen TV's and we are pet friendly.

I remember back when this little old lady was running the place and it was really clean. The people that own it now hasn't kept up with the upkeep and it's a dump now. I had to change to 3 rooms. The first room the bed wasn't made. The second room had a cord hanging out the window for their... More

There was a time when 'The 'Bay' was the best bargain in the ports... Unfortunately the new management behaves as if operation of the establishment is an annoying distraction. Moreover, their new price structure leaves little incentive for toleration of their 'proclivities' (not the least of which include; hit-and-miss office 'hours', failure to respond to their telephone, 'lost' bookings, and...

Looks as though they charge weekend rates as early as Thursday. I was told that it didn't matter if I stayed or not. Someone will come tonight and pay the price. It's a $30 mark up from Wednesday to Thursday through Saturday. I would have stayed but the lady was extremely rude. The gentleman who was supposed to be running... More

Having traveled extensively, this is undoubtedly the worst place I have ever stayed! It is extremely dirty with garbage piled outside the door. The rooms smell horribly and there is no housekeeping (not even clean towels) unless you request it. Do not stay here; I guarantee you are safer and will be more comfortable sleeping in your vehicle at a... More

We stayed at the Bay Motel when we needed inexpensive lodging for Duluth. The outside looked like the typical motel when we pulled up, parking outside each unit, fresh paint. Coming from MN, the no smoking state, we were almost knocked over by the cigarette smell when we entered the office, but the guy working at the desk (and cleaning)... More

I've stayed in tons of cheap hotels, and a had a couple lousy nights, but didn't expect much for a $49.00 room, however I never chose to review till I had this experience.... We booked a jacuzzi room for $86.00 on the phone. Then we saw It....the room was old and decrepit. Old crappy TV, old crappy carpet and bed.... More
