We go to the bay at least once a year and always stay at the Commodore. The staff and owner are friendly and always make you feel welcome. The old section was small however I'm really looking forward to this year to see the changes that have been made. I'm sure we will have a wonderful time again this year. The bar has excellent food at reasonable prices. You can't beat the location. See you in June!!!

This hotel was horrible. When we arrived, we looked for the hotel and only saw a big sign pointing us down an alley. There's some sort of construction going on back there so we had to drag our luggage through the mud.
Apparently the hotel office is being remodeled too, so they were using an empty guest room for their office, which was none too impressive. The clerk was polite enough but there were three or four guys sitting on the bed watching a football game....were they the owners or what?
Our room was horrible. Tiny, old, not very clean, and the deadbolt didn't work, although it was repaired when we asked. The sheets wouldn't stay on the bed, and the towels were dingy although they smelled strongly of bleach. At night, the alley was dark and I wouldn't advise anyone to travel down it alone.
We were there to party, so we weren't spending much time in the room anyway, but I still would never stay there again. For a little more money you can find something better.

The past six years we stayed at the Islander Inn and just decided to try something new. With extreme hesitation, we booked the Commodore. Overall, it's a step down from the Islander Inn, but we were being more cost-effective this trip. It was considerably less money than the Islander Inn, which made everything more tolerable. It is definitely a party atmosphere. The Tiki Bar is great, especially the rum runners. Though the pool could be cleaner, it filled the menu for a good party place. The room itself is small. I did see maid service working throughout the day, but the rooms could be cleaner. The bedspreads are screaming for a good washing, and the TV was adequate at best. But how much time is really spent in the room? We were basically there to sleep and that's it. I recommend the Commodore under limited circumstances.....it's a party place. Don't go there if you want a nice quiet, romantic night. Forget it. But if you're looking to have a good time, aren't going to whine over partying neighbors and instead will get up and join the fun, then book it!

despite the fact that we had a written confirmation in our hand, we were told that the motel was overbooked. they then tried to get us to stay in a "house" that was owned by them. it was unliveable!!!!!
we were left to fend for ourselves. with bags in hand we searched the island for another room. luckily, there was a cancellation at the bay lodging house. (which was a nice place)
we have usually stayed at the campground on the island, but decided that for our anniversary we would get a place downtown. we even booked almost a year in advance!!! there is no way that we should have had to deal with these problems with no help from the place that screwed up!!!
i will never stay at the commodore or patronize his bar that plays the loudest and most obnoxious music either.

these were the smallest rooms i had ever seen in my life!!!! broom closets are bigger. the carpet was stained, the A/C didn't work and it smelled like a dead animal. i was told that there were bigger and newer rooms in another building, but they were supposedly sold out. later when i came in the office i overheard a call from some people who were looking for a room and were told that there were 3 available in the bigger rooms. after that i tried to get my money back but was refused (very rudely)by a drunken owner while he tried to make the moves on my new wife!!!!the island itself is beautiful and i would recommend it highly!!!! but don't stay in this DUMP!!!!
