“Nice stay”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

My family and I stayed here for three nights last December. When we arrived at the airport we called the hotel and after 20-30 mins the free shuttle came to pick us up. The driver was really nice and gave us bottles of cold water since it was so hot that day. Check-in went smoothly and the staff was helpful. They gave us tips on the best ways to get to different sights and also offered to arrange tours or taxis.

The room we got was big but the bathroom was a bit on the small side. The room was clean and had all the usual amenities including a fridge, microwave, coffee/tea maker and a safe. Comfortable big beds. Wi-Fi was included. Our room was located in a building not connected to the reception and we had a nice view overlooking part of the water. It was quiet at night so getting a good night's sleep was no problem.

Breakfast (also included) was served in the same building as the reception. It consisted of eggs, sausages, toast, waffles, cereal, juice, coffee, tea etc. etc. Nice start to our day.
It takes about 30 mins by car to get to downtown Miami or Miami Beach, but getting a taxi or taking the bus is relatively easy.
After our stay here we were going to Fort Lauderdale and the staff kindly arranged for transportation. We were happy with our stay and would stay there again.

The free shuttle to/from the airport is probably the best amenity (the drivers are great).
The front desk was slow, the breakfast was poor at best, the overall look of the hotel shows a lot of wear over the years.
Rooms are below average but somewhat clean, for an old & tired hotel.
We had dinner at the sports bar downstairs & that was average too.

The hotel itself was a bit rundown but clean. The rooms felt more like a motel rather than a hotel. Breakfast is included but it was not the best (self serve - cereals, yogurt, toast, McDonalds type scrambled eggs that were barely warm, coffee, tea).

One good thing was that the bus stop was just outside the hotel that would take you right downtown Miami. It was a long drive through traffic though. The hotel provides free shuttle service to and from the hotel. The drivers were very friendly and helpful. The hotel staff also can arrange for you to go on tours of Miami. We did the land and sea tour which we really enjoyed.

We checked in late in the evening and were given our room key cards. I was upset that our rooms were the closest to the very busy and noisy highway. I was pleasantly surprised when after closing the door, the noise disappeared. The beds were comfortable. The room was quite large. It was one of the few hotels which have double queen beds, plus a single. We stayed for 4 nights and had a great time. The breakfast was good. It had eggs, sausage, waffles, different breads and delicious cinnamon sweet rolls. But the best of all was the coffee. They have a wonderful machine which makes all kinds. Chose from french roast, medium and light roast beans. Then chose the strength, Strong, medium, or mild. Then chose the amount which will fit your cup. It's made one cup at a time. I wish I had one for the office and home.

Room Tip: Book early.

Stayed at this hotel for 1 night before a cruise and it's not as advertised. The airport pick up was poor and confusing,the breakfast was not good, there are no shops nearby as advertised and the surroundings are not as pictured.

I would not return.

We stayed at this hotel 5days and 4nights. We picked this hotel because it was close to water & the view was great. The people at the front desk was amazing. Our room was very clean, bathroom was clean also. Our room had a king size bed. The room came with a microwave & frig. The bay view was amazing!! It wasn't to far from the beach and shopping. We couldn't have pick a better hotel for my bday. I had a blast!! We will most definitely go back!

The BW on the Bay was a very nice place for a very reasonable price for our family on spring break 2013. We stayed there for 7 days. The room was always clean when we came back from being out all day. The breakfast was great they had everythoing we needed and it was free. Parking was great, we never had trouble finding a spot close to our room. Everytime we crossed paths with any of the employees they were very friendly. The rooms were a bit smaller then we were used to, however like we said they were always very clean. Shuckers Bar and Grill was connected to the BW. It is a pretty cool open air sports bar. Tv s all over, good food, The help we don't believe deserved the automatic 18% gratuity. The hostess sat her friends first and they came in after us. Our waitress sat down at another table a few times to visit when we needed refills and our check. We figured she didn't say a complete sentence whenever she came to our table. We like to start at 15% and go up or down accordingly. Definitley down for that night. We had a different lady when my wife and I went for cocktails the next night and she was very nice and helpful with tourist tips.

Room Tip: 2nd floor and up had balconies for a better view of the bay
