Very friendly staff and an exceptionally friendly waitress/bartender in their on-site restaurant. Nice decor, clean rooms. Buffet breakfast wasn't the best, but it was free. They have a few hot items, as well as muffins, fresh fruit, bread for toast, and cold cereal. For a fee, you can order bacon, eggs and a a couple other items not offered. My...

First, the hotel is in the best location between the bay and marina. You can't get a bad view but I prefer the upper rooms. The hotel is clean and pretty much updated. Breakfast is included with a different menu each day. My only compaint would be that bedding such as a mattress pad that covers the whole mattress is...

So I want to preface this with the fact that they tried. Upon arrival, we were shown to a second floor room overlooking a pool that was undergoing construction. Our request for, and confirmation of, a first floor room was ignored. After about an hour we realized that our room was vibrating. Shaking like the T-Rex scene in Jurassic Park....

My husband and I spent a holiday weekend at the Bay Club Resort and were very pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed it!

Even though we are a bit picky about hotels, we stayed here for the weekend strictly based on location as wanted to be near family living in area. Just about everything was better than we expected. The staff at front desk was exceptionally nice at check in. Our room was very spacious; really clean with an extremely comfortable king bed....
