A few of us girls spent a night at the Bay. We did some gambling, had dinner, a few toddies and gambled some more. The check-in was efficient.....the room was clean ..... But most important, the bed was comfortable!!

My husband and I stayed at Fortune Bay Friday October 3rd and checked out on Monday October 6th. The last time we stayed at the resort was back in June of 2014. The customer service was an issue and I have to say that this time it was wonderful. We had James check us in again and he was very...

The motorcycle ride there on Hwy 1 from Hwy 61 was great,nice scenery. That was the highlight of the trip. Staff were great but the hotel room was very small,the beds were hard and air conditioner was very noisy. Had booked two nights but cancelled the second night for that reason. We gambled but the casino was very smokey and...

Our Beta Sigma Phi Sorority had convention 9-19, 20 & 23-2014. Food was amazing--rooms excellent. Kept busy, didn't get to pool, but was told it was very nice. Grounds were well kept up. Employees friendly and courteous. Wait staff served 170 and the food I had was hot.

The bad: I've stayed in a number of hotels but this was the worst. I am sure this hotel has some good rooms but 230 was disgusting. There comes a time when a room does not meet the least of expectations. The smoke smell was over powering and the window screens had quarter size holes to let the fresh air...
