If you are looking to relax on a balcony, this probably is not the place to stay. We luckily did not stay a long period of time in our room. I killed 2 roaches, the place is dated, the exhaust fan sounded like a jet was flying overhead!

This facility is part of a much larger resort with many options for hotels that have to be better than Bayside. The building for check-in was modern and appeared clean. Our journey through the maze of roads to our hotel room was confusing, but after a couple of days we learned how to get around in this large resort. The...

room was ok, very confusing in terms of finding it within this huge resort and the staff were not terribly helpful - - things should be clearer in terms of directions - the gate personnel sent me to the WRONG part of the resort in spite of my showing them my reservation. The Bayfront room was clearly old, could use...

This hotel definitely needs renovations. Our room was ok but bathtub drain barely worked and stains on carpet. They don't do maid service which was unbelievable. Great resort overall- especially if u stay somewhere else in resort- but they are definitely cheap. Could have better pools and updates. The village is fun but definitely overpriced. The beach is very nice...

The room was dirty and we had to call maintenance to fix the shower because it would not drain and the ceiling was molded and the paint was peeling off the wall. We called for house keeping on our 2nd day three times and no one came to clean the room. After the third call we were told we only...

This was a special trip I was taking with my grandson. This resort and Hotwire did not make it as special as I planned. I specifically requested a beachfront room. I really wanted my grandson to experience the oceanfront sounds and views. The First Lady at the checkin desk, tried to get me closer to the beach and changed my...

We were booked here for a conference (so the room was free). Be advised you check in at the Visitors Center, not at the actual Bayside Hotel. The guard at the gate abruptly and rudely told us this info without a hint of a smile or welcome.( I think if your job makes you miserable find another one!) The check-in...

Me and my spouse stayed here for the first time this past weekend and this was our first time we have stayed at this establishment. There was one pro and many cons to this room. One pro was the view. We stayed in a room overlooking the bay and it was a beautiful view. Unfortunately, the balcony was very small...

We stayed here for a conference (I went to the conference; husband came for the vacation). The room smelled musty and wet, which I guess can be somewhat expected at a beach/bay side hotel. The room was clean, which is my #1 priority. The bathroom was a bit outdated and grout lines were a bit moldy in spots. The vent...
