This hotel is fabulous. Rooms are exceptional, large, clean and so so comfortable. The pool area is great. Oh, and the on-site managers (Derek and Denise) are so helpful and willing to make sure your stay is enjoyable. This is the go too hotel for me when visiting the Bay.

From the moment of our original booking, service at the Bay Apartments was warm and more than accommodating. We asked for a couch that could be slept on (just in case) and were given 3 fantastic large couches and a 12pm check out. The room was clean and much bigger than expected with all the amenities one would expect. The...
