Despite its great location and reasonable rates, I found some disappointments in our recent stay at BayFront Inn. Our room was on the ground level with one king size bed, it seemed recently remodeled with basic motel kind of furniture unlike the impression that I got from some of the positive review. it’s just nothing to speak of, very plain furniture and no artwork on the wall, poor lighting. The bathroom, on the other hand, was nicely done with high quality hardware.
Their complimentary breakfast was worse than our expectation, not much to begin with. We stayed two nights there, by mid-morning the coffee was lukewarm, the orange juice empty, tables un-cleaned, and the desk clerk playing solitaire on the only computer available to guests. There was very little attention or interest in seeing to the guests. Having stayed in towns in Georgia with warm Southern hospitality, we felt very disappointed with her unfriendly attitude, and found it very unprofessional.
Parking in the historic district can be frustrating, so it was great to be able to leave our car at the motel to explore the town. Yet, it is on a busy street and the bridge cross street is under construction. Unfortunately, there is not much reasonable hotel alternative in the historic district, but I would have been happy to pay $50 more to stay at the Hilton down the street for a better customer service experience.
