    Business trip

    Great stay, comfortable room. It’s nice they have a breakfast option that they’ll deliver to your door. Most hotels I’ve stayed in the last year do not have this service. I like that I was able to check out by leaving the key in the room and texting that I left. So easy and convenient!

  • 2.0.Poor

    Lousy customer service

    Front desk attendants were rude and discounted our requests for a room with a view Vs one of the parking lot. We did volunteer to pay the up charge and we’re told we could not. That we would have to buy another room. Because we booked through Hotels.com they could not make any changes - period. They just sat and played on their phones while I tried to modify the reservation with Hotels.com, to no avail. The 2 ladies behind the desk at Baywatch had zero ability to show any compassion or customer service. Baywatch has no idea what hospitality and customer service should be in a tourist town. Hotel was less then 25% occupied. With so many hotels showing vacancies along the beach, next time we will choose another ….

    Need to have a side chair in room other than the desk chair. Elevator was broke when we checked out. Nice lady from housekeeping helped carry a suitcase down from the third floor.

    Everything was great except a machine-clattering outside our window. We were just too tired to mention it so it was all good

  • 8.0.Very good

    This hotel/resort was very nicely maintained and very clean. We saw staff sweeping the outdoor patio and beach area more than once, even though there wasn’t much foot traffic outdoors due to it being mid-October. The property seemed to be newly renovated and was in pristine condition— inside and out. My only complaint is that I could hear my next-door neighbor’s tv at night, along with the neighbors upstairs running/walking loudly around their room. Guessing this has to do with the fact that there is no carpet in the rooms (flooring appeared to be vinyl or laminate and was very nice), so sounds seemed to travel more easily between rooms. Other than that everything was great! The staff was all very kind, accommodating, and helpful. They went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The breakfast offerings and delivery system were the best I’ve seen since before the covid pandemic. I would definitely stay here again.
