5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2009

On our first trip a few years ago we stayed a little further South of the Bayview Inn at another "mom and pop" place and were very disappointed with the room, the amenities just the whole vacation was a disaster. After many searches and lotsof hesitation we found the Bay View Inn in Conch Key, We decided we would go out on a limb and try another small Inn instead of a major chain much much much to our surprise were VERY overly satisfied. Upon checking in Kathy showed us to our room and the location of things we would need for the length of our stay, assuring us that if there was anything they could do to make our stay more pleasureable to let them know and they would accomodate as much as possible!! A perk to the Inn is that there is a small convience store for your quick shopping needs and the boat slips outside the rooms make you sleep easier knowing that your stuff is safe. If you are looking for an upscale resort this is not the place for you...Bayview Inn is a relaxing getaway with a beautiful view and a management/owners that are very helpful, knowledgeable and sincere. Thank you Kathy and Ed for restoring our faith in the "mom and pop" establishments in the Keys!

We really enjoyed our time here in Conch Key. The owners were somewhat friendly. We got to our room and was satisfied with the condition of it until I noticed that there was a terrible ant problem in the kitchen crawling all around our food on the counter and also in the bathroom crawling on my toothbrush ( yuk). The little store was not very well stocked and the hours of operation for the store was not convenient for those of us boaters needing ice and clean towels after a certain time. We really liked staying on the bay side with our boat in eye view. Enjoyed the pool and the waterfall. Wood stay here again if they get the ants under control.

Each year my family and I stay in the Keys, usually around Marathon, for lobster season. We've tried many locations and Bay View Inn is, by far, our favorite. The Inn has many advantages to staying for a couple nights or more, especially for boaters:

-Free dockage with 3 night stay (can be up to $75/day at other similar resorts)
-Full kitchen in some rooms (great for us since we eat in on our vacations)
-Pool
-Brand new docks with use of boat ramp
-Convenience store (well equipped, reasonable prices)
-Easy immediate boat access to the Gulf and the Atlantic.

The price is very affordable. The owners (Ed and Kathy) are very personable and knowledgeable about the area (including great snorkeling spots!). The view from the rooms is a small bay area, with sight of the Long Key Bridge.

There are some features that people may not like, such as:
-Tiki hut is not actually a manned bar, more of a place for guests to hang out and consume alcohol that they've brought themselves.
-About a 20 minute drive to a grocery store (wasn't particularly a problem for us)
-Daily maid service not included (Note: this is not a resort, it is an Inn. You shouldn't really come expecting daily maid service) but may be arranged for by special request.

Overall, my experience with the Bay View Inn was excellent. The area fishing was spectacular (6 mahi-mahi over 20lbs each) and its in a nice tranquil location.

If you want a place that is laid back, no hassles, great location with gracious hosts, this is the place for you. Kathy and Ed have owned this place for years and they treat everyone as if they have been old friends. The rates are VERY reasonable and the location is fantastic. Since it is located in the middle of the Keys, you can make it to Key West and back in a day. That is pretty much what we did. We trailered our motorcycles up and ran up and down the Keys. The first night went out, our host, Kathy, was worried when we didn't call or show up. She called and left a voicemail make sure we were okay. They really are great.
If you like a family atmosphere, this place is for you. You can sit on the dock watching the boats go by, the pelicans, and we even had a manatee entertain us for awhile.

We had an awesome time on a tight budget thanks to this little gem of a place. The owners and staff were very helpful. We had four adults in our party and rented one of the rooms right on the water, and I mean right on the water. Wonderful for us since we came to fish and dive. We stepped out of our room and onto our boat. The boat docks were new and there was plenty of room. Boat ramp on the property was a plus as well. The pool, general store, grills and tiki hut were all wonderful too. Our room was clean and had two Queen beds instead of the usual full size beds that you get in most places and a small kitchen to prepare your fresh catch. You do not have to leave this place, everything you need is right there. I DO recommend the Bay View Inn if you are on a budget and want to have a laid back peaceful time. Thanks for a good time Ed and Kathy, We will be back. Robin Hinote, Avon Park, FL
