This used to be our favorite place to stay in the island. When we checked in we told we were in room 27 which is not the room we booked and had confirmed. The person checking us in said that she only had two rooms left so we could pick between the room we wanted and room 27. One of the reasons we loved booking here is that you can book a room that suits your needs, this year we didn't have other family with us so we wanted the room with a private deck.
The standard of cleaning wasn't the same, we stayed three nights and our washroom wasn't cleaned for the duration of our stay and the towels etc were not totally replenished one day. Light fixtures were full of bugs. The room just wasn't as fresh as they used to be, while not modern they used to be well kept.
On the pro side: It is still a good value and in a good location with a heated pool and close to Cavendish beach.

I just want to say we are very sorry to hear your stay wasn't the same as in the past. We will be looking into the things you mentioned as our staff should be cleaning the washrooms daily, delivering new towels, soap etc. As well I will be mentioning to staff that the need to make sure they clean the rooms thoroughly as no guest should be finding bugs in the light fixtures. Again we are very sorry and hope you will return again! We appreciate you continuously coming back and showing your support!

This was our second stay at this property. Was pleasantly surprised to see our room with a very nice renovated bathroom. The room was definitely higher quality than what I would expect it to be especially for the price. Lady at check in was very friendly and professional, within 15 minutes she helped us check in, got us a got And very patiently went through pamphlets to help us plan our 2 day stay with our kids. Has an outdoor pool that is heated which was fantastic. Property is close to all main attractions for children and has a playground on property. Couldn't have asked for a better stay, beautiful clean room, had a great sleep, beds were very comfortable room was quiet and air conditioner worked great!! Thumbs up to the owners for keeping the property in excellent condition and having great staff!! Will definitely be returning next time we visit PEI!

No need to say more for my two kids... they wanted here and they were happy. Free breakfast, nothing to write home about, the usual bread, jam, cereals and coffee and juice, but again... free. We are family of 4 so it was quite a bit of saving there not having to go out to pay a breakfast. The room was old and outdated, but very clean, white immaculate bed-sheets and towels, there is a fridge and microwave in case you are trying to save on eating out. The wi-fi is impossible and annoying during the regular hours, but then again we came there to have fun with the kids not to browse the internet or watch TV... Spent here 3 nights, every evening had troubles getting the kids outside the pool, which in their defense was way warmer than staying by the pool... There are propane bbq-s outside, about 5-6 of them so... you can save a few $ on food should you choose to... All in all, a very nice and clean place to sleep for adults and kids while staying in a budget. Oh... and most important for us when choosing: they are pet friendly and there is plenty of space to walk the dog!!

Room tip: Rooms 15-24 are in closer to the playground/pool, so they are best if you have kids you need to keep an eye on...

Thank you so much for this wonderful review and it is wonderful to hear the kids loved their stay as we do promote our motel as a family friendly place to stay! Pets included! Our laundry staff and housekeepers will be happy to see this review as they work hard each and everyday to make sure everything is as clean as can be.
Sadly in rural PEI the internet is not the fastest and during peak hours it can become slow, we are waiting on faster internet which we are hoping to have by next year. We are also always doing renovations to update our rooms and will be updating some of our older rooms in the next few years.

Thank you again for the wonderful review and hope to see you again!

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.
