I loved that it was so close to the ocean yet felt like being in a home. The room was big and comfortable. The staff were friendly and it was nice to have breakfast in the morning, too.
Location is right in the middle of everything. Park the car and walk where you want. 3pm check seems late in the day for check. In addition our room was not even ready at 3.
The room was clean and the staff was very friendly. I couldn't breathe. There was no air circulation. I could not sleep. When I went to check out, they could not confirm the cost and said I should check my credit card bill.
I chose the Bay Shores Peninsula on a whim, and boy was that a good gamble! The place is really quaint, staff is amazingly kind and attentive, and our room was perfect. There's not a lot of space in the rooms that goes to waste, nice sized closet with small fridge and safe, bathroom clean and well appointed, they even had a little nook turned into a dressing table for us ladies, complete with plugs and a coffeemaker. Good TV plus on demand channels and a wall of DVD movies in the lobby you can borrow. The rooftop lounge area is perfect for morning coffee or evening wine. The breakfast buffet was nice, quite a few choices and good coffee to boot. Plus they make fresh cookies every day, I mean really, it's like visiting family. Parking was a little lacking because there is construction happening, but that is truly out of their control and the staff helps out with that piece as much as they can. We will definitely be back!
The Bay Shore Peninsula Hotel is probably the friendless hotel we have ever stayed at, if not #1 it's tied for #1. Extremely convenient to the beach, shopping, dozens of restaurants and whatever you might need are probably within walking distance.
