Ok... now this motel is nothing special from the outside and the old staircase up to the second floor does not bode well however our room when reached was clean, lovely with a well located air conditioning unit, comfy bed and generally well appointed. We have visited many motels that looked better and delivered much less. Reasonable value also.

I was greeted in a friendly and professional manner by John. A great start to my stay. The room was clean, comfortable and roomy. Facilities were great and my room was serviced daily. I would reccomend Bay Air to any one planning on staying in the Redlands, handy position, close to the RSL and ferrys to Stradbroke Island.

My husband and I recently stayed 2 nights at the Bay Air Motel. We were very impressed from the first. The gentleman on reception immediately moved us to a ground floor room - without being asked. We were provided with very helpful information regarding restaurants. We definitely felt welcomed and would certainly re-book.

We have been to Bay View before, and were impressed. Basic rooms, but very clean and well appointed.
