Bay Sands Seafront Studios

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice location and friendly staff.evem given an "upgrade" with ocean view! But a bit run down. Lacking some amenities. Dated furnishings and kitchen utensils. One of two beds had big sag on one side.

Very friendly and helpful staff: parking the car in a tight space, making restaurant recommendations. Even loaned us extra towels to take on our day cruise!

Extremely friendly greeting when we arrived and checked out. Clean and comfortable. Could not have asked for more, but we only needed a place to stay for the night. Free Wi-Fi was available which was the most important amenity for us.
