I'm working locally and made a reservation for Thursday and did not cancel it. They were gracious enough to allow me to amend my stay for the following day. Close to the beach and plenty of places to eat within walking distance. Nice, comfortable room at a reasonable rate. Will

Well, you're right about one thing from the moment you checked in it was a nightmare. When you asked for a late check-out we said 12:00. Not turn in the key at 12:00 and go back to the room for another hour and fifteen minutes. The young lady we had working the front desk said that when you turned in the key she thought you were leaving. As far as me bursting into your room without knocking and cursing at you and your wife "Really" I'm pretty sure we would not have been in business for as long as we've been, with the reviews we get if this was the case. Thank you for taking the time to write such a Fictional story. Threatening not to come back, Thank you again.

We stayed three days at the Bay Inn and found it to be an enjoyable experience! Old school motel that is well kept and clean!! Just a great value for the area two blocks from the beach and close to all the attractions in a quiet area...

I was traveling to see a friend that has just been stationed in Norfolk. Not knowing the area I booked the room through a 3rd party. The room was nice and clean. No problems at all. It isn't the most updated but nice enough.

Ok I have read a lot of the reviews for this place and here are the facts: 1) The walls are thin and you can here just about hear everything your neighbor says. Management will tell you this when you inquire or check in. Most everybody is respectful of the situation. Management
