2.0 Poor
We didn't even get to stay there because the guy running the place gets extremely rude with people. He tried running my card before we got there. Since I keep my card disabled while not in use, it declined. When I booked the reservation it said pay at the property not the property was going to run the card before we got there. When questioned about his attempt he became extremely rude and cancelled our reservation. With the comment of " hope you find somewhere else this holiday weekend. " Well we did! The landing in Hampton was beautiful. Well maintained and clean. I recommend staying anywhere else rather than the bay inn. To the guy running the bay inn. You are rude and not needing to be in the hospitality industry. You need to be fired. If it's your motel I see why you're failing at life. I hope you have the day you deserve!
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:My husband and I went to Va since NC doesn't need have a NEX and booked the hotel. It wasn't very privy so we didn't expect much, it was very cozy and the guy who owns it was super friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Also he has a dog that's all the guests bestfriend which made it even better because all the best places have their own dog(:
2.0 Poor
Pros:Worst motel I've stayed in. Ever. Never have i been treated so rudly by staff like at this dump. Owner (and only employee ?) is a lazy, racist hater who does nothing helpful for his guests - even with simple requests such as a sheet change. Don't give this horrible person your money there are similar lodging options down the road.
8.0 Very Good
Pros:I liked that it was affordable; the staff was friendly and accommodating; there were no little brats around. All in all a comfortable stay.
Cons:Just a shower and no tub; parking lot is out back and has potholes.
