4/10 Fair

No towel and toiletries.

2/10 Poor

Arrived at four pm and the office was closed. Taped to the door was three envelopes with guests names mine was one inside was key to room. When I went into the room beds were made and room looked ok. On further inspection there was only one towel no hand towels or face clothes, no toilet paper. My husband finally found a house keeper that was leaving and told her we needed toilet paper and towels which she got. Later that night we realized there was a coffee machine but no coffee cups, coffee, sugar etc. when I lifted the lid there was an old used coffee filter left inside. Obviously this room was not cleaned or finished properly. Think twice before you decide to stay here.

4/10 Fair

While I'll give them credit that the sink, toilet and tub/shower were clean (at least, seemingly so), the rest of the room was disgusting. The floors were filthy, no surfaces had been wiped down, the linens were stained (I hope) and needed to be bleached. The walls and doors need to be wiped down also. The only thing that kept us from leaving was that every single other hotel/motel in the area were sold out. We checked in around 9:30 pm to find our key in an envelope taped to the door and couldn't communicate with anyone at time of check out. The room looked not at all like in the pictures. It was an overall VERY disappointing and gross stay.

2/10 Poor

NOPE sandwich with extra NOPE sauce! Stay away!!!
I am not a complainer... I'm a suck it up kinda guy who doesnt like to rock the boat or inconvenience anyone. Emergency stay due to a road closure. Last $80 spent Booking it late at night, 11ish, knowing there was not cancelation available after booking. (Like anywhere I figure) I'm not sure which "Bay Motel" some others are staying at with anything other than a 1-star rating. Perhaps the bay motel in a parallel universe and the internet is a bit confused with which one to attribute those good ratings to. The last room available and it was smoking. So my expectations for this room on has started far below par. Where to start... Upon arrival 11.15? No one available... just a key on the door with my name on it and a wifi password. The room? Stinks like smoke (expected) Chips, lint, strings, clothing tags on the floor in plain view. (And not a little... more like watch where you walk) Hair on the bed as well as crusty food stuffs (i hope) No towels or wash cloths Dirty ash tray Bathroom had streams of tar running down the wall. Filthy ceiling with smok tarpatches from condensation Hole in the wall stuffed with toilet paper Food in microwave Blood in fridge and unusable freezer No working windows Screen door has a 3-inch gap at the bottom... so i can take my chances with mosquitoes per chance I want the much-needed fresh air. No tv channels wifi didnt work. No refund from motel or The pros... it had beds and a toilet... Blanket+car=better
No towels at all
Tar on the ceiling and tape holding the fan cover on
Smoke tar running down the walls
Shoulda took mote of these. The whole floor was littered with lint and various debris

What a dump!
Property was a MESS!!! Don't know if they were renovating or had just let it run down. Obvious signs of someone being in room since cleaned as there were keys left there and someone had been on bed. Bed was hard. There were no towels and when someone bought them to room, they were still damp. No cups, no garbage can, no microwave. The front office was a mess and the person on duty reeked of pot. I've stayed here before and it was ok but never again. Early evening checkin
