We had a group that booked the whole motel. We had a great time. The staff is willing to help with anything needed. The location was lovely and the pool was perfect. Definitely going back every year. Thanks.

This place is quiet but just off the highway. Everything I want is 10 minutes or less away. Grocery store just around the corner, fishing, just around the corner and one of the best sea food restaurants, just around the corner. Has a fishing dock but lacks cover from the sun at the end. Really hot by noon. Efficiency rooms,...

Driving from Miami to Neveda City, California, stopped for a night stayed for two! Lovely waterfront motel. Here is some pictures to tell our story. New upgrades, clean, spacious rooms with full kitchens. Paradise on the harbor.

The hotel is in a great location with wonderful views and a nice park next door to enjoy for walks.The heated pool is great to hang out if you want to do nothing but enjoy the sun. Rooms are very clean and have good views of the bay. The sunsets are the best and the long pier is great for...

The hotel was recommended to me by a friend who had stayed there multiple times and said how wonderful it was. It is a great hotel for the location. The hotel is old, but they did update some things with it. It looks like the tile floors are new and the bathroom was redone. I did have some difficulty getting...

I have been staying at Banana Bay for nearly 3 months, and I absolutely love it here! I would recommend this small resort to anyone who loves being on the water without the commotion and distraction of a typical tourist location. The owner Anand and his mom are so gracious and helpful...always! The grounds are very cute and well manicured....

I thought this place would be the perfect place to stay and does have weekly rent which is even better. Yes they accept dogs, even better but their rooms have cobwebs and are dusting and not kept cleaned. Always had to ask for stuff because noone checks on you. The manager is nasty and judgemental along with the owner son...

Where the good reviews come from is a mystery. We were looking for a place we could do self-catering. The recent renovations and kitchenettes seemed ideal. In fact the renos are limited, they didn't extend to the bathroom door that didn't close, or the historic (2) kitchen chairs, on castors with cracked plastic seats or the feeble water pressure in...

Great view of the harbor, nice clean rooms, great staff! I really love it here! The view is amazing! Restaurants close by, mini put put golf next door! My very first morning here I walked out on the dock and seen a dolphin playing in the water!
