We have been in a few different rooms. They were all just right for what we needed. I like that we can walk to the amusement park & also dock our jetski's & boat. The owners are very nice & hospitable. We will be back again for our annual weekend getaway.

the place was pretty run down and the guy in the office smoked so it smelled really bad....we checked in on Monday and Tuesday morning we had no hot water...when we went to the office the guy said "oh yeah we have not had hot water for a couple of days" I asked why we were not told this when we checked in and he said that he thought it would be fixed by now....he offered for us to shower in the office but there was so much mold in the shower that we refused....
we decided not to stay because he had no idea when the water would be fixed and was not very concerned about the problem....
we will never stay here again or reccomend it to any of our friends...the beds were very old and made so much noise when you turned over....

My family and I stayed recently in the Celebrity Suite (one right below the penthouse) with 3 br, 1 bath, full kitchen and plenty of space for the kids (ages 7, 5, 4, & 6 weeks old) and 4 adults. It was clean and full stocked with towels and everything you'd probably need in the kitchen. It even had 2 refrigerators. The indoor pool was wonderful and the kids had an awesome time swimming.
However, it smelled so badly of cigerette smoke. The office is located on the same level as this suite and the owners appeared to be constantly smoking. We shoved towels under the door to try and help reduce the smell but it didn't help. I developed a sore throat and mild headache when we were inside due to the odor. When we got home EVERYTHING needed to be washed to get rid of the smell. Even the baby's pack'n play stunk. The entrance to the pool is through the office and the odor is even worse in there. The kids would hold their breath when we were going in and run into the pool area.
The grounds were a little on the dirty side with full ash trays scattered around and there was some garbage noted too. There was a recent fire at the resort located directly next to us and the damaged building was still there with a chain link fence around it. I know the owners of Bayside have nothing to do with that and can't help that it's still there but it just made the outside that much more depressing.
We have been going to Indiana Beach since I was a child and I was so looking forward to showing my kids "the ropes" but maybe Bayside was just not the place for us.

When we first arrived and looked around I was feeling ah.......then we went to into the room nd I still felt the same way. We settled in looked all around nd saw there was sooooo much more to this location than the room. The recrecation desk is amazing. You can chill up there, after a day in the sun. You can cook below and bring ur food up which is what we did nd it was relaxing. They have 3 people swings and table and chairs up there. Down below they have spaces for boats which is g8.....you know where ur boat is, you can check on it anytime.....which is a comfort to most I am sure. It is very convient to get dressed and walk 100 steps to your boat.

Tery and Jackie are GREAT!! They go above and beyond making sure you feel at home....nd it is ur home for ur stay. They are welcoming in every way....they show you where everything is when you arrive nd tell you if you need anything let them know nd they follow through with what they say.

Tery also has a number you can call if you need anything day or night.....who does that now adays??

Tery and Jackie have every ammenity you need...extra towels, sheets, blankets, silverware, coffeemaker, coffee, handsoap, dishwashing soap, dish towels, tupperware, plates, bowls, plastic silverware.

The location is sooo close to Indiana Beach another convience to walk to an amusment park do not have to deal with the hassle of parking ;) nd Tery also has passes to the park and the waterpark at a discount price....AWESOME we took advantage an it was FABULOUS!!

Please come to check out what Bay Side has to offer you will not be sorry in anyway ;)

Room Tip: Get a group of people together there is more than enough sleeping room enjoy, relax, nd destress.
