“perfect for our stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

This was my first time to Put in Bay and when I was booking my trip, I did not know where to stay until I made a call to the Bay Lodging Resort. Not only were they very helpful with all of my questions, but they gave us advice of where to go without us even asking. The pool and tiki bar are great to have right outside the room because we didn't have to walk downtown if we wanted a quick swim. It was a very clean facility and the eight minute walk wasn't bad at all for when we did venture downtown. I would recommend this place to my friends and certainly stay again.

Love this place! It is tucked away from the sometimes 'crazy' downtown area but close enough to walk to downtown--best of both worlds! The pool and buckeye tiki bar are FUN! The staff is very friendly and accommodations are clean! :)

Just had another fantastic stay at this property. We needed a quick getaway, and chose to stay at the Bay Lodging Resort again, based on the excellent experiences we've had there in the past, and they didn't let us down. The pool and patio and tiki bar were spotless (we love the palm trees!), our room was clean and cool, and the service we received was excellent. The property is far enough away from the "strip" to allow for some quiet relaxation, but just a 3 minute walk to all the bars and restaurants. It's easy if you want to leave your car on Catawba and catch the ferry...most things are an easy walk, or they have golf carts for rent on property if you want to explore the island.

The front desk recommended The Goat restaurant, which is in the building Pat Dailey's used to be in, and we had a great meal. An easy walk from the property, opposite direction from "downtown." Getting ready to book again for July!

We had opportunity to head up to the bay on short notice - great accomodations, hidden away - but not far away! Great place to take your own group, or become part of one. Everyone is really friendly - super to relax or kick it up a notch - your choice :) This is set away from the total downtown hub bub, but also easily walkable. Try it yourself and see - definitely would stay here again.

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at the Bay Lodging House during one of our trips to Put In Bay. Very nice and clean accommodations, complete with a lovely pool and a nice pool bar. The entire staff was so accommodating and friendly and made us feel right at home. We love the night life on the island and this is a short walk to it, but far enough off of the party scene that we can relax and take some time out too. We would most definitely recommend Bay Lodging if you are headed to the bay. You will not be disappointed ;-) Big thanks to the staff for being so welcoming. You guys were awesome !!!!!!

It's within walking distance of the strip, has an excellent pool and bar, but is far enough away from everything that things won't be keeping you up at night. It's a very good spot to stay in on the island, not exactly the Ritz but it serves for a quiet place to sleep after having a good time on the island.

Stayed at the Bay lodging resort a few weekends ago, Sept 21-23. The room was nice, the beds were soft, no major smells or nastyness like I've read in some other hotel reviews. the only complaint I would have is that the TV did have a big greasy smaear on it. ....like someone used Crisco to clean it. .....might want to look into that. We were on the 1st floor, just down from the front desk, and we heard no noise late at night whatsoever from people coming in from bars.
It is a few blocks away from the main drag, but thats ok, if you go to PIB, you should be prepared to walk most places anyway.
We're not some old couple, we're in our early 30s, so yeah we were part of the loud drunk scene too, but we still enjoy quiet when we're trying to sleep. Which we got. The 2 nights we stayed were a nice getaway, and we would stay there again. Thank you.
