I had to go to Tangier for work in Feb 2013. There was no lodging on the island...but a call to Bay View (they were closed) was rewarded with the invitation...they would open for a night! Bay View has new owners. Very friendly. Internet worked. Excellent home-made breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable. Very very quiet. Hurricane Sandy damaged the island heavily including this place so repairs and upgrades are ongoing. The owners will give you an honest answer on what to expect.
