We were very pleased with our stay. The Bay Inn is located in a quiet upscale neighborhood and only a very short walk to the public entrance to the beach on Hammett St. Check-in was quick and pleasant. The room had been recently re-modeled and looked fresh and modern even though it had the old school motel layout of the sink living a separate life from the rest of the bathroom. There was no closet but there was a rack to hang clothes although no hangers were provided. The parking area was tight for our minivan so if you're challenged by backing up in small spaces this could be a problem. On the whole this is a very nice place to stay and a great value!
This is a small budget friendly 21 units total, all on one floor opening to a courtyard with outdoor seating. Many of the rooms have been renovated. Our room was one. The room was comfortable, clean with a frig and coffee maker provided with coffee. The water pressure was great and lots of hot water morning and night. Parking is limited but we had no issues even coming in late. The best part is the beach is a block across the street. There is a shopping center up the road about a mile which we walked to because there are sidewalks all around. We stayed two nights and will return again - already booked. Great Room, Great Service, Great Location.
My husband, two kids and I stayed for one night on our drive down south, and thought it was a perfect small, independent motel. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the courtyard garden between all the rooms was a lovely spot to relax in. The owner was really nice, and his dog Callie was adorable. Thanks for a nice stay.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and loved it! The man that checked us in was so nice and his dog was cute and friendly as well. We had some hiccups when paying on our part due to our card getting locked because of traveling, but they were not annoyed at all about it and were more than enough help with this. This inn gives off mid century modern vibes with the teal painted brick and cozy secluded court yard. The rooms are recently renovated. The rooms are so clean! I've never felt more comfortable sleeping in a hotel bed because the sheets were pristine. The bathroom is walled and floored in stone and the stand up shower was nice. Never ran out of towels or tp, complimentary shampoo/soaps and coffee. Large mini fridge and microwave. The beach is a short walk just across the street and was not crowded at all. We will definitly be staying here again. (:…
So, my girlfriend and I were lucky enough to have wonderful grandparents in the area who were willing to get us set up in a hotel, since I have never been to the beach before. I knew something was off when I called the day prior just to check if our reservation was all taken care of. The host of this Inn was very rude on the phone when I was trying to get information on when to clock in. Being unfamiliar with the area it is common for me to seek advice from locals on what to do, simply asking the manchild of a host where a car wash was located was enough to irritate him. There was evidently conflict my girlfriend and I was not aware of, where the host took her grandfathers information, stored it and did not use it when we arrived, so he is willing to take information but unwilling to use it when it came to the day of check-in. Fair warning to anyone looking to set someone else in the area, don't do it. We were supposed to stay for three nights, we went to the beach (it was fun), we came back and as we were getting ready to clean up we heard a knock by the host telling us he had no rooms for us and we needed to leave the next day. My girlfriend and I cleaned up, approached him respectfully and said we would be willing to just leave now, my girlfriend said she did not feel safe after the confrontation, he replied with "good, I am glad you don't feel safe." Great guy huh? I said I was not looking for conflict and tried to turn in the keycards. He retorted against me over the pettiest thing about me calling and showing up early. As I was leaving I said expect a one star review. The guy came out and started harassing us saying "you think your one star review will effect me? Why don't you get your ghetto ass off my property". Well guy, I will let people who read this and see your decrepit p.o.s, run down love motel be the deciding factor of that. I do not think you need to do anything other than just call and listen to the mans tone on the phone, if he reads this and thinks he can fix it by changing into a more polite guy, take this as a truly severe warning. This man does not deserve your money, use it elsewhere. We were lucky enough to have family in the area we can stay with, others may not be so lucky. You have been warned.…
