Went on a road trip from Chicago on the recommendation of a friend as I have never heard of Put in Bay. What an amazing place, so much fun! We stayed at Bay Lodging and made a good choice. At first I found the Buckeye Bar a little annoying being from Illinois, but it was all good. We had great...

Had a great weekend at the Bay! Bay Lodging was the perfect place to stay...we had a great time enjoying the pool and tiki bar during the day and we were within walking distance to the downtown strip to enjoy some of the night life without worrying about transportation. The rooms were clean and the staff very friendly. Thank you...

Bay Lodging Resort is an excellent hotel that is just close enough to downtown. When you are ready to head back to your room you are far enough away from the noise and nightlife, which is a big plus. The staff was very accommodating and our room was very spacious and clean, I would recommend this hotel to anyone who...
