Check in was a breeze, super friendly, added upgrade which was unexpected and wonderful. Parking can get crazy buy the beach, but the staff was very helpful directing us. The Bay Inn property was quiet and clean, and the cleaning staff was friendly and attentive, but not pushy.

For the money it could have been a lot better. Had to ask the cleaning lady for towels and paper coffee cups every day or they wont leave any, we finally gave up and bought our own from the store. The newly renovated 2 bedroom units are in very poor condition with water damage

Just to be clear, the Bay Inn at Lani Kai isn't the Ritz. But it IS an absolutely wonderful place to stay! It's across the street from the main Lani Kai resort and you can use all of the beach/pool amenities over at the big hotel while living and sleeping in a much quieter

Hotel was okay for the price but could have been cleaner. The location was convenient to beach, restaurants and bars. I like the set-up of the room. There is a room with couch ,microwave and mini refrigerator, a bedroom and a Bathroom. A couple of the nights, there was a lot

We stayed for a week at the Bay Inn. It is newly remodeled, that’s a plus. There are 3 stories, and I believe 25 rooms. It is directly across the street from the Lani Kai. They do have a parking lot that has an attendant from 8 AM to 5 PM daily. You will get a parking pass to

Response from MsLaniKai, Manager at Bay Inn at the Lani Kai
Responded 2 Apr 2018
We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with such detailed feedback about your stay. Thank you for your great comments about our newly remodeled rooms and for saying it was a "plus" to your experience. Your helpful hint regarding our Standard Room at the Bay Inn was very helpful to future travelers. Ideally, the Standard Room is best for two people or if you have one child. If you want more space or need to use the pull-out sofa for sleeping, then we would recommend the Standard Suite or the Deluxe Suite as a better option. However, we did want to provide a pull-out sofa in our Standard Room for those traveling on a tighter budget. I also appreciated your helpful recommendation regarding where a guest could store their toiletries in the restroom. This is something we would be happy to look into with a possible solution for future stays. I was very sorry to read that you had some experiences that did not meet your expectations. I have shared your comments with the Housekeeping Manager so that your feedback can help us improve on the guest experience. Thank you again for your detailed review and helpful recommendations. We truly appreciated you choosing the Bay Inn at the Lani Kai and look forward to welcoming you on your next visit.

Pet friendly?
Thank you for your inquiry regarding The Bayside Inn at the Lani Kai Island Resort's pet policy. Unfortunately, we do not allow pets at the Bayside Inn. However, less than 5 miles away is Tails-A-Waggin Animal Hospital & Resort that even features a pet pool! It's a great way to enjoy the Bayside Inn at the Lani Kai Island Resort and keep your pet nearby. The Tails-A-Waggin Animal Resort number is (239) 482-6897 if you would like more information. Also, the only Dog Beach in the area is only 10 miles away from the Bayside Inn at the Lani Kai Island Resort. The Dog Beach allows you and your pet to make the most of the Gulf of Mexico together in a pet-friendly environment. Thank you again for your inquiry and I hope you found this information helpful. We also hope to see you at Bayside Inn at The Lani Kai Island Resort.

"Some rooms have window air conditioners. Best bet is to book a deluxe suite to know you'll get central air."
"Get a room WAY UP in the top of the building far away from the lounge/patio area"
"Maybe the rooms on the left side may be quieter."
"happy hour is good deal here and across at the beached whale!"
