Somewhere on the stretch of the Trans-Canada heading south toward North Bay there is a sign that advertises rooms for $49.99 at the Bay Motel. Of course I knew that they probably only have ONE such room and the rest are a bit more money but I needed a place to crash, since all of the campgrounds north of here... More

I like it especially the location between the Forest, felt like a movie scene. The staff was good . The rooms are regular rooms and there's maybe one or two are deluxe. The price was high a bit for motel (not in downtown). If you wanna go have some nightlife without any driving, you can call a taxi the staff... More

Headline says it all really. Paper thin walls means that you hear everything from the next room. I complained to the manager and he just shrugged it off rather than move me to another room away from the loud weirdos next to me.Low priced rooms means low quality clientelle. Do yourself a favor, don't stay here if sleep is a... More

We heard about this motel from a friend who said it was good value for the money and we found that to be true. We have been told it has been recently renovated, so we look forward to the changes on our next stay. We have booked a room in December for the past few years and have always had... More

The pricing signs on the highway advertisements do not match the price when you get to the hotel. We ended up having to stay here on a busy weekend, as our normal hotel was fully booked. Dark rooms that are not quite as clean as I would expect. The price gouge turned me off on this motel forever.

Reserved room for one night stay. Advertising said clean rooms. I wasn't expecting the Taj Mahal as it is a low price room, but expected cleanliness at least. Room had an unclean odour. There was dirt (don't want to know what it was) on the wall behind the bed. The bathroom was dirty, the doorway was covered in filth. They... More

Needed a room at the last minute and not much available due to a convention in town. Better than expected. Decent room, comfortable bed. TV, fridge, microwave-everything you need. Older motel and not perfect but good value for your dollar. Nice owner/manager

I found this inexpensive motel using Hotwire and had no trouble at all it is located away from town so there are no restaurants in walking distance but the room is clean and functional. At the time I went in winter and it was very quiet there.

Stayed here but left a night early. Was not too bad but you get what you pay for right. Just stayed in a standard room with a bed. Room was small, outdated, probably wouldn't stay here again. Would spend the extra $$ to get a nice place.

Really nice place to stay. Owner's are very polite even when woken up way to early for most people. With a fridge, microwave an coffee maker in room makes you feel like you are at home. So if you need a nice clean room for a night or 2 stay at the "Bay MOTEL"
