“A clean place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

We spent a night in their standard room. In addition to cable TV and free open wifi, it also comes with a fridge, microwave and a coffee maker, table and a recliner. It looks like the room has been renovated not too long ago. The room is clean. The only complaint is the mildew at the bottom of the shower curtain.

The motel has a huge backyard that has direct access to the bay, and it's a great place to watch sunrise and birds. They have a canoe for rent for those who want to explore nearby. There is also a bbq grill on the front lawn.

The location is not too bad, just a couple of minutes drive to downtown Trenton.

This motel was clean, quiet, and had everything I needed--full refrigerator, and stove plus microwave. The owner is friendly and helpful. Everything was new inside--and the walk down to the water is a lovely way to spend time relaxing

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

Where do I begin? I stayed in room 105 for two nights in aug 2013, And I have only once seen a more disgusting room. When you walk in the door you notice right away that the dead bolt has been smashed out before and doesn't lock properly and that there is a pile of dead bugs in the base of every light. The floor was sandy and had hair on the carpeted areas...(enough that we could see it against the floor). The bath tub was nice and the tiles were clean, but the walls in the wash room had perfect hand prints everywhere and the sink area was very dusty. The bed room had either pudding or some other rusty brown liquid (blood!?!?) smeared on the wall beside our bed and there was long blonde and short black curly hair in the bed (thankfully we pack our own pillows). We just did our best to pick up and clean before we let our children in. We could have complained I know, But when your four month old and your three yr old just want out of the truck.. and you've already paid... on a long weekend in a town you don't know.. You just have to take the hit and then let others know what happened.

Stayed here for 3 nights in July, there was a mix up with our booking but it was quickly resovled.  The motel rooms are clean and spacious.  The owner willing to do all he could to make our stay enjoyable.  
Lovely setting beside the lake which we walked down to and watched a couple of CRAF planes overhead, a few ducks and sailboats on the water.  Be sure and look out for the black walnut trees growning all around the motel and the walk down to the lake.
Surprisingly quiet location. 
Got a great price and will happily return if in this area.

If you are looking for a place to stay for a night or two in this part of Ontario, you can't beat the price at the Bayside. I searched all the options! The rooms are basic but very clean; it had a small kitchen with refrigerator and microwave in addition to the bedroom. The owner and other staff were very friendly. We were pulling a pop-up and needed to put it some where to unhook while we went to dinner; the owner (his English a little hard to understand) was very helpful with that. The setting is great, with a large lawn out back leading down to the bay, and restaurants are close by. There seems to be much to explore in this area, but we could only stay one night. The motel is small, so in the summer season, be sure to make a reservation. There was no vacancy when we were there.

We stayed at Bayside Motel as a last minute Canada Day trip and were pleasantly surprised. We checked in early with no problems and the owner was nice enough to give us a choice in which room we wanted to stay in. The room had a kitchenette in it and BBQ grills outside--It was awesome--being able to cook with my friends made the trip more enjoyable. Some of the grills didn't work, but we were still able to use one and make the best of it. Grocery stores were a 5 minute drive away. The thing I noticed while driving to the grocery stores was there were other motels there too, but they seemed less private and less relaxing. Bayside Motel had an amazing view of the river, and you could even rent canoes! North Beach Provincial Park is a quick 20 min. drive and the Airforce Museum is very close.

We had no huge problems with our room. Water pressure was strong, and beds were comfy. I really had no issues as I had a great night's sleep, delicious BBQ that we cooked ourselves, great view of the river and quick access to beaches.

I really can't complain as I knew what I was getting myself into. If I wanted a 5 star Hotel I would have stayed there. This is honestly one of the best motels I have ever stayed at, with the friendliest staff I have experienced so far.
