“Old but Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

An older motel but really spacious, clean. Booked a two room suite but was beat by computer booking seconds ahead of me. Staff called right away to inform of the situation and gave us another room with private balconey. Full use of bar-b-ques available to everyone. Was suprised to see a full sized fridge and stove in the unit, which was great to make quick break fast in the morning. Very nice view of the lake and looked like there was canoes to use.

The front desk was helpful and pleasant. The rooms were clean, spacious and even had porcelain mugs, real cutlery and a large mini fridge. The value was excellent and those little touches really made it feel more like home. Will definitely return when in the area and would recommend to anyone!

My husband and I stayed at the Bayside Motel and we loved it. It's old-fashioned for sure, but it's big enough to house a family of two adults and a couple of kids. There is a bedroom separate from the living room area - and the living room has a bed and a pull out couch. The linens and the bathroom were clean. There is a kitchen with a full fridge, oven, microwave and coffee maker. You can see the Bay of Quinte from the Motel and it's only an 11 minute drive to central Belleville. You can rent by the day, week, or month. The manager was very friendly and helpful. What's not to like? :)

Room Tip: All rooms are essentially the same.

From the outset, this hotel made a good impression. The grounds were very neatly kept, the sloping hill down to the lakes edge makes for a nice stroll, and the patio overlooking it all makes for a great place to relax after a long days travel. The owner was very nice with a great sense of humour. The room was neat, and tidy. Could use a little TLC, but overall a great room for the price. Definitely recommended for a nights stay while passing through town!
Thanks!

I arrived at the motel in the middle of a huge storm so was unable to take advantage of the excellent view across the lake. The receptionist was friendly and helpful and the room was very good. The outside of the motel has seen better days, but this shouldn't put you off what is a good value for money motel.

Wanting a quiet convenient rest stop after a hard drive from Nova Scotia, we checked out this spot primarily because of the beautiful location on the bay of Quinte. We were visiting family members a few miles up the trent canal and just wanted an inexpensive night before starting the visit, We found the staff so friendly and generous with the offer of barbecues and other amenities that we ended up staying for the entire visit and commuting to our relatives up in Frankford on a daily basis. For the price and the friendliness it is one of the best bargains around. Our thanks to shawn and family for making us feel so welcome

Room Tip: Since they are upgrading I would suggest viewing the rooms for the best available.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay completely. Room very clean and shower pressure not bad for a hotel/motel. Chairs and table right outside room which we enjoyed for most of the evening. Picnic tables and BBQ's also were available although we chose to dine out at the "Boat House" in Belleville which was also fantastic. We will definitely stay there the next time we are out that way.
