Great location, very clean. Attached parking lot for boat and trailer.

The view was lovely for sunrise. Unfortunately, the room wasn’t so nice. The floor was covered in sand, the bedding was stained and the bathroom was kind of gross. My daughter tried to plug in her charge cord by the bed and got electrocuted by the exposed wires. Needless to say, we won’t be returning for another visit.

Great views of the water, place was very clean. Walls are a bit thin.

little hotel on the beach, the water was rough and the day was dark, but the casino was near.

The hotel was pretty clean, and that is important to us. The beds were comfortable and we had the basic needs. Loved that we could have the family dog with us. The beach area was nice but very rocky for the first 30ft, then sand. They have a fire pit right on the beach and everyone has a area outside there room with a table and chairs if you want to sit and enjoy being outside. The motel staff were great.

Tiny rooms with tinier bathrooms with even tinier shower. The room smelled bad when we checked in, but wasn't noticeable later, even when returning after a day out. Microwave oven on listing, but not in room. Terrible noise from traffic. Private beach and fire pit was nice.

First, let me say, had I read all of the reviews on the different sites I would not be writing this review. We arrived around 4 pm and the temperature was about 85. In order to check in I had to ring the bell to be let into the office. Once inside, I signed for the room and was informed that if there were any problems, report them prior to 10 PM because no one would be on the property after 10. We were met with a blast of hot air when we opened the door as well as a very musty odor in the room. We plugged the AC in and it labored to blow cool air. We inspected the bathroom and found the shower to be RUSTY and grimey looking. No way could we take a shower in this filthy shower. I sat down on the bed and the mattress and springs were hard and creaked when you moved. We opened the refrigerator to find leftover food. At this point, I returned to the office and told them of the situation and they said they could not give me a refund because it was clearly stated as non-refundable. They did not even offer up a different room. I asked both desk people would they stay in that room, neither one said yes. All we wanted was a clean place to lay our heads....BayView Lakefront Motel failed miserably. Whatever you do, don't book non-refundable and ask to see the room before putting any money down.

Nice 2nd floor room on the corner with great views of the water! Only down side were the Midge Flies, they were really bad and it was hard to sit outside and enjoy the surroundings.

Thank you very much for the review. Maybe insulation would work a lot better. I will see about that.
