“Surprise Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

After reading some of the recent reviews, I almost cancelled my reservation but I am so glad I did not. This is not an upscale, fancy place. What it offers is clean, newly painted and updated rooms and a decent breakfast and a good night's sleep. We travel with our dog and many places are not very nice that allow pets. We had adjacent rooms with my 92 yo mother. Her handicapped accessible room was perfect and she had no fear of showering. We are able to keep the doors open between rooms to ensure she was ok. The location was convenient to some decent restaurants. This hotel is not pretty and not scenic and not for a vacation but is a perfect stopover point.

My daughter and I stayed 2 separate nights on our way to/from lax tournament in Philly. For $58 (with AAA discount) I found this hotel exactly what I was looking for.....a place to sleep. I have read the other reviews and the smell they speak of is nothing more than a room that needs the A/C or ventilation turned on to cure it. The room and bathroom is like a Hampton's little sister. Bed was comfortable. Room was quiet. TV worked. Bathroom was clean with small soap and shampoos/hairdryer, etc. If I had to complain about anything, it would be the breakfast. But you can tell they are trying really hard to match the higher end chains by offering a breakfast and still maintaining a low price. The only other thing I noticed was the exit door in the stair well going outside was open, so potentially anyone could walk in this door and go straight to the guests rooms without passing the front desk or lobby. This was troublesome but I didn't discover this until the 2nd stay and maybe they had it open for a reason. Bottom line: I stayed a total of 2 nights at Baymont for less than the price of 1 night at a Hampton Inn and since I only was going to be in the room to sleep for 8-10 hours it was a great value!!

We booked this hotel for an over night stay while en route for a family vacation to DC/Virginia Beach. This hotel was recommended by a coworker. I have never stayed at this hotel chain, but being under the Wyndam group, I thought it would be alright & wow, was I WRONG! I cannot begin to describe the smell of the room...cigarette smoke mixed with strong cleaning products, perhaps? We had to sleep with our shirts pulled over our noses! The A/C was almost nonexistent & seemed to be on the verge of, well, extinction. Stains on sheets, smoke alarm falling out of ceiling! Mattress broken down & looked as if it had been pulled from the trash. Need I go any further?My family did not partake in the continental breakfast...I woke up as early as possible the next day, 5:35am, to be exact, to get the heck out of there! Still questioning why we stayed there once we saw the squalor-I guess hindsight is 20/20. Do yourself a favor & stay in one of the other area hotels.
