“What a lot of crap.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Booked a week - stayed one night. Room was filthy, - room 110....cost me an extra night to cancel. We had a 3 year old with us. had to wash her hands every 2 minutes. She walked around barefoot...her feet were brown after a few minutes. Screw heads were poking up at the separation between the bathroom and kitchenette - nothing like a trip to the hospital with a torn foot. The whole place needed a wash with disinfectant. It is an efficiency with no pots, pans, knives, forks...basically bring your own...the top of the fridge needed a cleaning. The cupboards also needed cleaning. There was mould in the bathroom. The soap and shampoo were minimal. I didn't feel like touching anything. The beds were right out of Value village. The bathroom door was possibly the former door to the bedroom as it was installed upside down. There was no door to the bedroom. The rug under the beds in the front room was so bad, I was afraid to let me clothes or socks touch it. My daughter found "boogers' all along the window sill.
We checked into the Travelodge next door and had a great week after that...This place is 1956 wilderness quality. It has a nice location though and beautiful access to the Bay. It could be a haven for fishermen if it was cleaned up. But then again, ev eryone's tastes are differnt...you do save $20.00 a night by staying there.

My husband and I stayed here July 23/14.
I had checked the website and decided this motel would fit our needs .It was clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. The grounds were very well kept and the evening view of the bay was gorgeous.
Outdoor chairs and barbecues made it very homey.The owner was very helpful directing us to local sites.and the best beaches. We enjoyed our stay in Trenton very much.

An older motel but really spacious, clean. Booked a two room suite but was beat by computer booking seconds ahead of me. Staff called right away to inform of the situation and gave us another room with private balconey. Full use of bar-b-ques available to everyone. Was suprised to see a full sized fridge and stove in the unit, which was great to make quick break fast in the morning. Very nice view of the lake and looked like there was canoes to use.

The front desk was helpful and pleasant. The rooms were clean, spacious and even had porcelain mugs, real cutlery and a large mini fridge. The value was excellent and those little touches really made it feel more like home. Will definitely return when in the area and would recommend to anyone!

My husband and I stayed at the Bayside Motel and we loved it. It's old-fashioned for sure, but it's big enough to house a family of two adults and a couple of kids. There is a bedroom separate from the living room area - and the living room has a bed and a pull out couch. The linens and the bathroom were clean. There is a kitchen with a full fridge, oven, microwave and coffee maker. You can see the Bay of Quinte from the Motel and it's only an 11 minute drive to central Belleville. You can rent by the day, week, or month. The manager was very friendly and helpful. What's not to like? :)

Room Tip: All rooms are essentially the same.

From the outset, this hotel made a good impression. The grounds were very neatly kept, the sloping hill down to the lakes edge makes for a nice stroll, and the patio overlooking it all makes for a great place to relax after a long days travel. The owner was very nice with a great sense of humour. The room was neat, and tidy. Could use a little TLC, but overall a great room for the price. Definitely recommended for a nights stay while passing through town!
Thanks!
Nicole and Pete

I arrived at the motel in the middle of a huge storm so was unable to take advantage of the excellent view across the lake. The receptionist was friendly and helpful and the room was very good. The outside of the motel has seen better days, but this shouldn't put you off what is a good value for money motel.
