As others have said, this motel has an old school cottage/motel feel reminiscent of family trips in the 80's. Bay Vista is incredibly clean! And THAT is my deal breaker in accommodations. They were just opening the property up for the season and nothing smelled musty or stored. Everything was fresh. Location is convenient and quiet. The staff are warm, welcoming, friendly and helpful. I will stay here again! The only "negative" isn't under their control. My car's GPS unit couldn't find the street address so you may want to call an get directions. I just winged it and found it just fine.

I have yet to stay there. I did book The Night in August but then had to change my days. I tried to call the 1-800 number, the 902 number also. I have also emailed them and they do not reply. I understand it's February but , please, at least confirm with me that my room has been cancelled. Thank you

Revision: Yesterday, 4/28/18 I did receive a phone call from Becky, she said there was a 'mix-up' in communication as far as who was suppose to check email's. Apparently nobody was. I get the fact that it's seasonal, i'm from Nova Scotia. I appreciated the call, she was very pleasant, and I got to confirmed both my cancellation and my reservation. I'll review later this summer whae we actually go.

Stayed: April 2018, travelled with family

We were pleased with the accommodations. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was large, the bed was comfortable and the added continental breakfast was located in a cheery room with a view.

This is a small motel with an older cottage feel. The room was clean and comfortable. There was a microwave and refrigerator, but no coffee maker! I would have liked to sit on the deck early in the morning, have some coffee and just read and chill. The room included a small but adequate continental breakfast, however it did not start serving til 8 which I feel is too late for early risers. It was quiet and peaceful.

Thank you for taking the time to review our motel! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and that the room was clean and comfortable. We are sorry that we didn't have a coffee maker in the room as we do understand guests enjoy having a brew in the morning when they first get up. We hope you will return again in the near future as we did enjoy having you!

We enjoy staying at the Bay Vista. The past summer was our 6th visit to the Bay Vista.The rooms are very comfortable and the staff is very friendly. It is perfectly located and the scenery is awesome. It is the perfect place for us to get some R&R on our annual island getaway.
