First time trying Bayfront Inn. Stayed at the Charlotte Cottage (off property). It was quaint and off the main streets. It is free standing and 2 floors. Kitchen and main floor has tile. Upstairs bedroom has wood floors, a double bed and the toilet/shower. It has a private courtyard with an outside fireplace and table/chairs. The kitchen has microwave/full side fridge/dishes/utensils and bar. The downstairs has a 32" TV and the upstairs has a 28-30 inch. Both have cable boxes but not HD channels. They have some DVD's to use but no DVD player. The downstairs TV does have an accessible HDMI connection. Previous reviews indicated bug issues. We saw a few ants (coming out of light switches and power outlets and windows) but nothing big. They got worse on the second day so it appears that the cottage does not get professional pest control treatments. The overall smell was fine, slightly old-home mixed with new wood. Heat worked well (it was actually cold that weekend). The really BIG drawback was the attached residential house located on the same property (owners of hotel?) had 2 Dalmatians that, although friendly when you say hi, one of them (the male) will continually bark at you as long as you’re in sight. They are taken in at night. This totally makes using the courtyard impossible to enjoy during the day. Very unprofessional. The parking is very bad during work days as the road has one side parking and the Dept of Military Affairs employees use them up. At night it's empty. The staff at the Hotel, Dee, was very helpful and nice. I informed her of the few issues with the cottage and she said she would follow up with the owner. Past reviews did indicate that the manager does read these reviews and does take action if possible.
Rated Cleanliness as poor due to the bugs. Otherwise very good.
Rated Location as Average due to dogs. Otherwise excellent.
