We stayed at the Bay Vista Motel only two nights.

*Location: The Bay Vista is located about a minute outside the very busy and touristic stretch in Cavendish.

*Staff: The staff we dealt with over the telephone prior to arrival was more knowledgeable about the region than the staff that was there during our short stay.

*Cleanliness: He motel in general including the rooms were very clean except for the first night we slept in a room that had been smoked in prior to our arrival. We checked-in too late to inform staff about the smell which made for a very uncomfortable first night stay.

*Wifi: We did use the free Wifi and it worked well but is not fast.

*Room: The room was simple, standard size for a 2 queen bed or 1 queen and a double. It has a fridge and microwave. The rooms are carpeted. The air conditioner was very loud but worked well. The bathroom was very clean and large.

*Breakfast: Open 8-10am. We had breakfast both mornings. They offer regular, everything and raisin bagels as well as white, whole wheat and raisin bread. They have 2 double toasters and a microwave. There is butter, peanut butter and jams. There was packaged oat meal, Cheerios, Raisin Bran and Corn Flakes cereal with 2% cows milk. There is hot water and teas, coffee, orange and apple juice. The place is kept very clean and was overall simple but good. There were NO gluten-free options other than the canned fruit salad.

*Parking, Other: Parking was close, free and convenient. They kids used the pool on one occasion. It was okay. The pool is unsupervised and open 930am to 930pm.

*Overall: We recommend this motel for those wishing to stay close but not in Cavendish. It very much has a campground feel to it, so if that is not your cup of tea - this would not be a good place to stay.

Thank you for your review, we appreciate that you took the time to post this. We are very sorry that the young man who works the front desk wasn't their to help you with the area, he was sadly off those days.

We are very sorry to hear your room smelled of smoke the first night and hopefully you mentioned that to the day manager. No guest should be smoking inside any room and we appreciate you notifying us of this. We are constantly working on improving our Motel and appreciate the time you took to leave a review.

We hope you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you back again in the future!

We got into P.E.I. late at night and stopped here. Asked for pricing and availability since it was the long weekend. They had a couple of rooms and were very affordable. Especially compared to other hotels that popped up in my search. We got to our room and it was very clean. Small cottage style room with a rustic feel, but clean and just what we needed. The owners were both very friendly and actually came to the room to get the sofa bed setup. We didn't even ask them for help, just had stated that we'd be using that. Very helpful.
Beds were comfortable, everyone slept well. Then in the morning we woke up and the view was beautiful. The front doors face a river and some land they have here.
Free breakfast is also included. Bonus! Especially travelling with our kids.
So all in all, great location, great staff, great cleanliness and value.

Very dated but clean. Clerk/ owners were very friendly and accommodating. As it was the beginning of the summer season for them, the room had the closed up seasonal smell to it. Bed was very comfortable but also had that musty smell. Breakfast in the morning was fine. Light but enough for us.

Stayed: June 2017

Enjoyed the stay, very friendly staff, great location. Nice clean rooms and reasonable price. We were there at the end of the season, there is continental brunch every morning to enjoy. Fridge and microwave in the room.

Room Tip: Generally single story motel, but there are a few rooms on the 2nd level.

We liked the stay here. Place was clean. Comfortable bed. What we didn't expect at a motel was a continental breakfast. Nice touch. Appreciated it. Nice scenic location. Overlooking an inlet. The owner was great to work with.
