“Never Again! Dirty, Smelly, Nasty!”
Reviewed August 16, 2010

After looking for a last minute hotel, Bayshore had openings, for less than 100 bucks....seemed to good to be true! And it was! Hotel room was smelly, old and out dated. Toilet ran on and off all night, wall was starting to buckel near bathroom, toilet handle was cracked, chairs in room had stains, sheets had stains. Dead bugs around shower, kitchenette was nasty! I would never cook on that stove. Frig ....I swear was 50 year old and smelly inside. I would not put food in it. Pictures are VERY misleading!

This Days Inn has been bought and changed to Bayshore Inn and Suites. Do not stay here. It is old and gross. There was a sign saying grand opening, yet the wall paper in our room was being held up in several places by packing tape. We were told that there was free wifi and when we couldnt connect, we called the front desk and were told the reception was "spotty depending on the weather." One could say the same about the TV reception. You can hear the guests in the rooms next to you when they walk or watch TV. Our nightstand was falling apart. The shower was built for a short person. The beds were made with ill-fitting fitted sheets, one top sheet and the comforter. For those people who remove the top layer of hotel beds, that leaves only a sheet. The air conditioner leaks onto the floor in the room, leaving a spongy mess. The "free breakfast" consists of coffee and doughnuts. The walls and carpets are stained. We requested a non-smoking room, and this didnt happen; room smelled bad. The only redeeming quality to this hotel was the pool, which was nice and the price was cheap compared to others in the area. I dont understand others on here who said it was nice, I would like to see what they think is bad! I would put the extra money in and stay somewhere else.

Dirty.! Beer bottle on floor by sofa. Bugs on window sills and around baseboards. Sofa cushions with holes and stains! (This was one of their best rooms) Rooms under construction. Not given what was reserved online. Reserved kitcheette room but the only one available had no working cold water in shower...wanted us to shower in another room. Clearly not what was represented on their website. Stayed one night only because there was no other rooms available in the area. Wifi in rooms close to office only. Ice machine broken.

I am a frequent traveller to port clinton. I really liked the location of this motel. For the money i paid, it was totally worth it. Staff here is really nice and prompt. Rooms are adequate. Swimming pool is a bonus. Would definately recommend it!!

This hotel was dirty, (dead bug and spiders) smelly and our air condition was not working on a hot July night. Just because the price looks good -DON"T DO IT!

This place was very dirty. I felt itchy the whole time I was in the room. I'm not usually a picky person but this room was nasty! There were stains on the sheets and dirt and dust everywhere. We stayed for two nights and they did not clean our room after the first night. I was glad that I didn't bring my baby because there is no way I could have let her crawl around that dirty room. The people who worked here were very nice and I felt too bad to complain to them. There was a pool outside and it looked pretty clean.
