great beach stay

The hotel looks a little run down from the outside, but the inside was really nice and updated. Modern bathroom amenities, clean appliances, and really nice balcony. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a room with a balcony overlooking the inlet (not the actual Gulf), but it was still very pretty and the main property (where the actual beach access is) was only a block away and across the street. The main property has a nice little tiki bar, a large pool right on the beach, beach chairs, corn hole, shuffle board, and a small put put golf setup. Overall, a great stay!

Penthouse Paradise!!

This was an impromptu trip and I took the risk of booking the hotel without the opportunity of speaking to the staff to alleviate my concerns. Note, they are there until 11 PM and I made my reservation close to 2 AM before arriving that afternoon. I have traveled extensively in both the US and abroad, and I particularly loved the personal touches and the fresh, updated penthouse suite offered to me. It was outstanding!!! I loved everything about it.

Mixed Feelings

Pros: could use all 3 facilities amenities; clean; upon arrival our safe did not work and Tony came the next day and fixed it--great guy- very personable and gave us suggestions on where to go to eat. Cons: didnt realize that on Sunday they don't clean the room in order to give their employees a day off?? I didnt get a reduction in the amount I paid for the room for that day yet my bed wasnt made; hptel is on a very-very noisy street which totally detracts from the peaceful water front; early on Saturday morning around 9:00 after 2 days of bad weather we were finally able to sit outside and enjoy the peaceful waterfront area and the hotel decided that was a good time to saw and hammer about 5 ft from where we were sitting in order to install a light--not the best time for that project. The owner did not apologize but still--come on--this is my vacation and after being cooped up in my room for two days I wanted to enjoy sitting outside in peace and quiet; we had 1 small bar of soap upon arrival. After 4 more days with no new soap to replace this we finally, on the 5th day, had to request a new bar of soap---very frugal establishment All in all I could see the owners had pride in ownership but they could do a few things to make it better for the visitor. I realize they cant do anything about the traffic but all the other things are under their control. I would recommend this hotel to friends because it is clean and there is def pride in ownership evident but I would warn them that on Sundays they wont have their room made up and they have to ask for soap or take their own along with them.

Great Location

Hotel is in a great location and has a lot to do. Our room was very small but had all amenities. Staff gave great recommendations to local restaurants. Call hotel direct for rates before 3rd party sites.

A little misleading

When you book the hotel, you get the impression you are booking on the beach but, in reality, you are booking on the inlet. It's an inconvenience to go to one location to check in and then go back to the other location for your room - especially if you don't have a car. Also, the coffee is kept at the 2nd location so if you want "free coffee" in the morning, you need to walk up to the other location. The room was clean and spacious but it would be nice to know up front what you are getting for your money

Wonderful vacation

My husband and I were looking for a hotel such as yours. We wanted to have a full kitchen in order to cook breakfast. We picked the bay side location because of the peace and quiet. We were so right!

Location, location, location

we stayed at the bayview plaza right on the Bay and it's right next door to an italian deli and bakery that serves the best coffee and home made breads, baked goodies, etc. on the beach. Walgreens is on the corner and Publix and mall is a block away. The Gulf is right across the street -- best beach around. I've stayed here few times before and plan to continue to stay there when we visit family close by.
