Bay Side Resort
Ranked #2 of 9 Hotels in Monticello
Reviewed 12 June 2013

I normally stay at chain properties but the Best Western was booked and there are only two places to stay in Monticello. I thought it was pretty nice for a smaller motel until I went to take a shower in the morning. I opened the shower curtain and there was a big glob of ugly hair. My wife and I were attending a funeral and just washed up instead of taking a shower. When my wife reported the hair when we departed they kept insisting it must have been ours and we forgot. I think they thought we just wanted a discount or something. They said their housekeepers were fantastic. When we were at the funeral, a friend told me he arrived after 11 pm and they took him to an occupied room and there was an unhappy guest in the room.

This review is a little belated, but I did want to share that we enjoyed our stay at Bay Side very much at the end of this past summer. :) We usually stay on the ground at Indiana Beach, but its incredibly overpriced and kind of run-down over there now, so we tried our luck with a different property this year. The owners of this motel are just LOVELY people and we enjoyed so much getting to know them. There are lots of things to do at this resort, very nice indoor pool, paddleboats and such. The *only* negative thing I can share is that we discovered the hot tub and sauna were not working, but the price for the room was the same as usual. But our room was super clean and we were able to grill and paddle around the lake, and its super close to IB. We had a great time!

My boyfriend suprised me my taking me to Indiana Beach for my birthday for a long weekend. We had so much fun staying at Bayside Resort. We stayed in one of their smaller rooms, just big enough for 2 people, but had a kitchen so was perfect for us. The room was very clean and the gounds/deck around was very nice and clean as well. We had a great view of the lake and at night the deck out back perfect. They have lights all around it and we sat out and have some drinks and just relax. Terry was very helpful. He was very accommdating to all of our needs. We loved our time there.

We are considering coming back next year with our daughter and her friends and renting a bigger room. Thank you Terry!

Jackie and Terry are very nice people. We had so much fun staying at bayside this past weekend. We loved our time there. The kids enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi so much. We spent a lot of time at bayside as well as the park! I would recommend bayside to anyone looking for somewhere close to the park and somewhere your family can enjoy down time while not at the park. I cant wait til my family and I come back and stay in the penthouse next time!!!! I LOVE BAYSIDE WOOOOOOOO, lol!

We have been in a few different rooms. They were all just right for what we needed. I like that we can walk to the amusement park & also dock our jetski's & boat. The owners are very nice & hospitable. We will be back again for our annual weekend getaway.
