Very dissapointing

Don't expect food or drink to be available on the weekend. Even though they say they have the services available. Shuttle service is slow and the driver was sulky. I'm very disappointed in BW. All the... more

Thank you for taking time to provide feedback about your stay with us at BW PLUS Bayside Inn. We do share that our Bayside Bar & Grill is open everyday for breakfast and Mon - Fri only for dinner. We are happy to assist with choosing an alternative nearby restaurant on the weekends since we are right next to Little Italy with an amazing variety of dining options or over at the nearby waterfront. We invite you to contact management here at the Bayside Inn if you would like to provide more details about experience with our complimentary shuttle service since we take this feedback seriously and would like to ensure we have a full understanding so we may make improvements were need be. We do thank you for choosing to stay with us and hope you will consider staying with us in the future... we would be happy to have another opportunity show you the type of service we are known for.
