Shallow Bay motel and cabins are conveniently located but lacks anything to make it special. Feels much like a facility suitable for bus tours but is pretty much all that is available in town. Facilities are clean and staff and service friendly.

when we reserved the B and B we expected something different. What we got was a house across from the Motel property shared by 4 couples - there were four rooms and a large kitchen and siting area that we could use. It was generally a clean though we did find used Kleenexes in the beside cabinet. The breakfast was...

Thank you for your review! It is true that ours are not your typical B & B's, however we saw the need for more affordable accommodations. We find that most of our guests are okay with this arrangement. We regret that you were dissatisfied with your experience.

We stayed one night at the Shallow Bay Motel. We were in room 122, which had a nice view of the ocean. There was a nearby exit door that could be opened from the inside, to bring in or take out luggage, so you didn't have to lug your bags all the way from the lobby. Cows Head is close...

Cabins were nice and clean. Staff were helpful. Free wifi but poor connection. Quiet area. Pet friendly. Across the road from theatre, bar, and restaurant. A few attractions including botanical garden, shallow bay, the head, and Dr. Henry Payne Museum.

Good water pressure. Plenty of very hot water. Mattress and pillows were very uncomfortable. The kitchen wasn't too equipped. Needs a drainer for pasta, coffee maker for a group. The fan over the stove is useless! There was a lack of crisp and freshness on bed covers, curtains upholstery and carpets - felt a bit sticky to me.

We stayed at the B&B portion f the much larger Shallow Bay motel complex. The rather small room had a walk-out to a common back deck with excellent views of the bay. The room was clean and nice two-choice hot breakfasts were included at the adjoining resort's full service restaurant although not the full menu. This B&B is part of...

Thank you for your review! It is true that our B & B's are not typical, however, we find that most of our guests are quite pleased with the arrangements. Being a larger property, we have a theme running throughout(i.e. room decor, etc.). We'd be happy to see you again should you be in our area in the future. Cheers!

These two bedroom cabins have all you need to a comfortable stay, clean and well kept, reasonable price especially if you have a couple to split with. A great base of operation for hiking, sightseeing and relaxing.
