Took us a while to find this after going to the wrong hotel as they have changed their name. The beach has red ants so don't take your shoes off, but the dock there is nice. A local park to have a picnic and watch the sunset. Had to keep relogging into the WiFi but the rooms were gorgeous!

We stayed here last year and have to say this year was better! First when you walk in needs new or more decor. Paint or some color would be good. Front desk employees were nice. Room was ready and it was a large room. Updated furniture but outdated and stained comforters. Could use new beds and pillows. Beautiful view of...

I believe they changed management and boy did they make a HUGE mistake. What used to be Quality is now dirty, filthy, run-down, smelly, crack- hotel feel to...

The hotel name is now Roya Hotels and Suites. This was very confusing, as our confirmed reservation said Quality Inn Bayside. I'm still not sure if it is affiliated still with Choice Hotels. When we arrived, the lobby had a foul odor and the paint was chipped on the walls, giving a negative first impression. The luggage carts cannot be...
