“Nice place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

We enjoyed this location. Large room. We had one with a private jacuzzi and little private area. Things were updated and it seemed much work had been done to make it lovely. Friendly owner. Nice pool.Quiet. you can walk to Naswa resort to eat. Beautiful gardens. Only negative is there is no breakfast but they do offer coffee. Definitely recommend.

My husband and I have been up to the Weirs Beach area for years and on my parents recommendation, decided to stay at the Bay Top Motel for a weekend. We were going to an event at Meadowbrook Farms and celebrating our anniversary. I was a little nervous that it would be loud because of a Nascar race that weekend, but the motel was amazing. Quiet, relaxing and clean! Just wonderful. The owner was such a delight to talk to and the building and rooms are maintained beautifully. Even though we have access to a house in the area, we would still consider staying here again, without a doubt. The price was right and the accommodations were lovely.

Room Tip: Its a small motel so access to the pool is easy no matter where you stay. If you have a group coming...

This is a great motel with character. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and it was nice to sit outside the room just relaxing and enjoying the view of the lake. It is one of those hotels that many families and friends keep coming back too year after year as a tradition. The owner are great people

Room Tip: All rooms are nicely placed

We stayed 4 nights in two rooms (family of 6). The beds were ok but the sheets weren't changed during our stay. The little window unit a/c cooled it down ok but things felt damp and our swimming things would never dry. The pool is small but very clean. The kicker was the neighbor. She drank & smoked like a chimney right outside our doors and dropped f-bombs all day long, even in front of the kids. There are pretty mountain and lake views from the porch but kept having to take refuge inside. The gardens are lovely and the kids really enjoyed the table tennis and swimming. Pretty good for the price.

GeorgeNH, Owner at Bay Top Motel, responded to this review, 16 July 2014
While the guests in the neighboring room did drink and smoke, at no point did we find them drunk or loud or they would have been gone. They were actually quite pleasant to chat with, so this review is quite a surprise. We enjoy having families, but it is unreasonable to expect other paying guests to sanitize normal adult behavior just because children are around. We change sheets on the third night of any extended stay. I do know for a fact the sheets in one of your rooms were changed since they were bundled up on the floor following a mishap. We also generally will not touch beds if they are covered with personal belongings, of which you had many, so as to avoid possibly knocking small items like jewelry onto the floor. If the beds in your other room weren't changed, that might be why, or it might have just been an oversight.

PS... Just to clarify for anyone reading: we do not have any air conditioners in windows. They are all suitably sized units mounted through the wall.

Great place to stay. The owner is very motorcycle friendly. Stayed during bike week and will be back again. the owner had rags to wipe the bikes down and an area to do a full wash if you anted to. Within walking distance of places to eat and many bike week vendors.

My mom, sister, and I stayed at the Bay Top for the first time last weekend and it was a wonderful stay! The location alone simply can't be beat. This motel is located 5 minutes from Weirs Beach and 10-15 minutes from Funspot, Kellerhause, and downtown Meredith. I can't even lie, I am not typically the "motel" type of person but the experience here truly was top-notch. There were three of us and there was plenty of room. Not only that, the cleanliness was superior to that of Sheraton and Westin brand hotels I have stayed in. This is a great place for families to get away, be close to at all, and pay a reasonable rate. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: Room #7 has 2 doubles and a twin for larger parties!
