Our room was clean and very spacious. It had a large flat screen TV. There was a nice refrigerator and microwave also. The view on the Bayside was lovely. No...

We had the best time at this hotel! It's on the older side but they have remodeled and updated features. We had a room with a balcony facing the ocean, got wonderful pictures morning and night! Never heard people in the halls or next door. It's a nice place for a family or couples vacation!

Spent the July 4th weekend at the Bay Harbor Hotel. Had a great time. The room was clean and the view was spectacular. The staff were friendly and answered any questions that I had. The Beach parties were fun and the crowds were pretty well kept under control. I would love to come back to the next beach party.
