Verified Reviews of Quality Inn Bayside

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Nice View."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The view from hotel room was nice. The air conditioner was extremely loud and didn't cool the room. There wasn't an exhaust fan in the bathroom and it got hot in there really quick. Also they could use some more front desk staff. But overall a pleasant stay.
