I reserved this online based upon photos and information provided. Boy did I feel misled. The pictures make this dive look far better than it is in reality. Massive ICK factor. Once I got there it felt like a pay by the hour joint. Horrible. Filthy carpet, missing tiles in bathroom, disgusting linens, missing molding around the baseboards, drapes barely...

The desk person was very unfriendly, the room was pretty gross. The bath mat was growing mold, and we were rudely awaken at 8am by a woman outside screaming at the top of her lungs. Smoking areas aren't clearly marked, so we weren't sure if we were going to get in trouble for where we were smoking. Overall, terrible motel...

This place was in a convenient location for a base and had plenty of parking. The towels and sheets were clean, the shower had hot water, so all good if your just wanting an overnights stay. I wouldn't recommend anything longer, it's very noisy at night. The woman on reception is just awful, with absolutely no people skills. Not the...

Got upgraded to a family room free of charge. Not the nicest area but we didn't care because we hardly were there. We were able to fit in 2 more of our friends thanks to the upgrade. Room was alright. Bathroom sucked.

Lots and lots of cockroaches in the rooms. Unapologetic and unfriendly staff. Dirty bathrooms and dust covered rooms. Structurally unsound building. Wanted to be reimbursed for my hour long stay that was supposed to be 2 days still waiting for my money back from trip advisor

The room was very outdated, but clean. The only problem I experienced was checking out. They didn't want to give me a receipt. They said I had booked with Expedia when I actually booked with booking.com. she needed to check my room before I could get my receipt. After she looked at my room, she tried to print a receipt...

I made the mistake of staying here with my service dog! My first warning should have been when the desk help reacted negatively when he saw my service dog and in a rather snotty tone told me that I would be charged if the dog made a mess. I checked out the next day after no problems only to find...

So, this is not a motel that I would have ever booked. However, my friends and I were in SD for a quick night and one of my friends was in charge of finding a place to stay. We are definitely budget travelers and the Bay Inn was cheap and conveniently located for our plans. When we pulled in to...
