Our stay at the Bayside Inn was Ok. On the negative the shower had NO pressure at all. The water trickled out, i kid you not. The wall unit air conditioner was noticabley noisey. During the day, no problem, but at night it was not good. You had to request housekeeping because of covid. I personally believe that the short staff had a hard time keeping up. When you are at a sandy beech, you need housekeeping everyday. Bayside was not $100.00 a night hotel, so i expected more than what i recieved. On the plus side the bed was very comfortable. All staff there was helpful and very nice. The pool was decent and paddleboards were included in room and always available.
This was my first time in the keys. Driving down the strip and arriving I was a little concerned about this place. Once we got in the room with nicely updated in noise insulation was excellent. I stayed on the third floor and heard nothing from neighbors. Room was updated and comfortable. Especially enjoyed the mattress as I am a hot sleeper and I slept cool and comfortable all night and really felt relaxed. Had some drinks next door that were excellent at snooks. Made time to relax and get back patio. No hot tub pool was okay for small children. We did some snorkeling with a local tour company on the nearby reefs and that really got my water fix in. The clownfish were the best sight I've seen in a while. Don't let the outward appearance of this establishment for you I found it to be pretty nice inside.…
Okay place to stay. Newly renovated and nice rooms. Mini fridge, microwave, and Keurig were a very nice touch. Grounds are smaller than anticipated. This is more like a 3 story road side motel versus a hotel or resort. Nice point in the back with BEAUTIFUL views of the water and sunset; however, sits right on a 4 lane road. Burger King, CVS, and Speedway are right across the street. To be fair, most resorts near the central part of the island sit on the road, just was not anticipated. Housekeeping and maintenance were a bit of a struggle but nothing worse than everywhere else during this time. Conclusion: nice place, amazing views, but not worth the price tag.
We stayed two nights at the Bayside Inn and were very satisfied! Newly renovated clean room. The located is very convenient and you can walk to many restaurants. There is a beach area with kayaks, paddle boards, and lots of lounge chairs with beautiful greenery and scenery. The pool was very small, and did not look clean. We did not plan to go in it anyways. Overall it's not the four seasons, but it is definitely worth it for a water front renovated hotel in the keys for the price!
I haven't written many reviews, but...we LOVED staying at Bayside Inn. The room, staff, amenities, and views were fantastic. For the price, it was definitely worth staying at. The pool is small but never busy and the sunsets are by far the best in the Keys. We would stay here again.
