“Definition of roach motel”
Reviewed 30 September 2012

I was in town for a friends wedding just down the street in Reedville, I live 3hrs away so i decided to get a room here since it was close the wedding, I walked into the room and felt very unclean and not happy with the place, I walked back the area with the sink to hang my dress clothes and found pills from a prior guest all over the floor as well as a dead roach. Sheets were non to clean as were the towels. So i went to the local store (10 miles out) and bought sheets, pillows and a towel just to consider staying. I ended up driving 3 hours back home after the wedding. Place was disgusting and and this is coming from a 25 yr old male who has traveled and stayed at some bad hotels on college baseball road trips. But this is by far the only place I didn't feel comfortable sleep in or walking on the floor even with socks on. Just drive back out to real hotel not this place.

Room Tip: stay away find somewhere else

This place seemed ok when we first arrived, but the motel owner was not a reasonable person. When I pulled down my sheets to go to bed, there was a magot on my pillow!! The owner would not allow more than 2 people in the room even if there were 2 double beds in it! There is so fire code stating that one cannot have more than 2 people per room. Hey just wanted us to pay more money when we only wanted one room! So we left and did not even stay there!! Do not stay here, find another hotel in town who will treat you with respect!

We arrived at the Bay Motel after making reservations nearly 3 weeks prior to the visit. We had reserved 2 rooms and after paying for the rooms, getting settled in and going to bed, the owner took it upon himself to make us pay for another room because he only allowed 2 per room. This was about midnight! After telling him that I had paid for the room and the 4 of us were comfortable in two beds, and that we were not going to pay for another room, he called the cops. The police came about 45 minutes later and told us that we had done nothing wrong as there was no law or fire code that didn't allow 4 people in a room with 2 beds. As we got our refund and left the motel, I personally witnessed him making up the beds that we had already laid in for an hour or so for another customer to use.(Gross) Needless to say, we didn't get any sleep that night and fished and all day tournament the next day.
Do yourself a favor and get a nice hotel in Kilmarnock or nearby town even if it costs a few dollars more and a few more miles away. The Bay Motel can advertise as "Northumberland's finest Motel" simply because it is the only one within 10 miles of the area. I found this outdated, rundown motel to be poor in all areas and I will never return.

Room Tip: Chose a room that is not located in this motel at all. Go elsewhere, you will not regret paying a li...

This was the only hotel/motel option when we traveled to the area to visit with family recently. It is a square cinderblock building with about 20 rooms, nothing really around it. Mr. Patel was helpful and clearly doing his best with a very run-down property. At least half the rooms smell like smoke. The overall feeling is dingy and charmless. You can't really tell what's clean since nothing is spotless except the sheets and towels (stained linoleum, cracked shower plastic, old mattress covers, etc). It's true the water pressure was good and water was hot. We moved rooms because of an incident with the room next to ours (motor vehicle accident), and the second room did not have a chain to lock the door. I usually feel safe everywhere, but having only a doorknob lock on a door opening directly to the parking lot, and miles of flat fields beyond, didn't feel so cozy. We left a day early and were glad to check out.

Patel is a generous host. We went to a friends farm to have a Motorcycle ModFest, and this was the closest place to the location. Nice rooms, everything works, very high water pressure in showers! It's no Holiday Inn, but I will certainly stay there again. Clean, quiet, friendly. All we needed for the group.
