I've stayed at The Bay Club one week every summer in a 3 bed/3bath unit for the past 4 years: my wife and I, three kids, my in-laws, and my dog. We always have a great time. It's a very, very, very quiet place, so I can see why the other posters may have gotten ejected if they were too loud. I never thought about it before, but I guess that is why it is a quiet place: because the guests and management won't tolerate anyone making a lot of noise. In fact, I have never heard hardly any noise while there (except in the indoor pool, which I expect and even contribute to). It's a peaceful place and I think that's great. People that stay there are, in all of my experiences, very respectful of others, probably because it is a timeshare ownership place and most people there are owners, not renters. Heck, people actually pick up after their dogs there!!! The other posters were probably bothering the other guests and the other quests complained. I sure wouldn't want them intruding on the peace of my vacation, and I would complain also. Management has never intruded on us in any way while we were there, ever, and obviously they don't evict people routinely for no reason whatsoever. Eviction is a radical, last-resort solution, but it sure is a solution to a problem! The condo itself is just fine. It's not luxurious by any strecth of the imagination, but it's a fine place to stay for a week. It's right on the bay, has a beautiful view (especially sunset), has a nice dock for the kids to fish/crab/whatever from, there is an indoor pool that is clean/uncrowded/refreshing, and parking is never a problem. I've never seen a bug inside the condo while there, ever, so it must be a relatively clean building. It's got all of the expected condo furnishings. The interiors are kept in good shape. The exterior of the building is not maintained to perfection but I would not call it 'rundown' either, the grounds are not landscaped to perfection, but it's ok. Some flowers/bushes and they mow the grass and clean the parking lot (it's mostly parking lot, not much grass).The a/c works great. Maintenance people respond very promptly to any complaints like a broken lamp or no tv reception (we had both at one time or another but they fixed it in less than one hour). The Jolly Rodger amusement park is next door, which is wonderful: a great waterpark that the kids can walk to and from without having to cross any roads or walk a long distance. There is also a LaserTag gaming place a block away and the kids (and I) enjoy playing war there. The ocean is a short walk, 4 blocks max, but who wants to sit on a beach: there is too much else to do in OC. The north end of the boardwalk is six blocks away, and you can catch the boardwalk tram there, or rent a bike there for some a.m. exercise. So my thoughts are: if your kids are on the wild-side or you are going to throw a party go elsewhere, if you want a 5-star resort and demand perfection go elsewhere, but if you want a quiet/clean/roomy place for your family/pet to stay right on the bay with a pool and plenty of parking then come on down!

For 9 out of the last 10 years we have stayed a week for our family vacation. Each year the building has gotten worse. A couple years ago, they started to charge a security deposit. They put it on my card and took it off not long after we left. It was on $200.00. This year, we stopped to pickup our keys and were informed that we had to give them $500.00 cash or they would not give us our keys. Obviously we were upset. Nothing we could do but give them their cash. We were told we would have the cash sent back in two weeks if nothing was wrong with the room. They made the building supervisor inspect our room before we could check out. He called and told the management company everything was fine. It is now August and we still do not have our money back. It does not take a genius to figure out if they hold $500.00 from each renter for 6 weeks in a money market account, serious money can be made. The merchants wonder why business is down. With EastCoast Management Company renting out rooms, many people will not be back.There were several things wrong with the room when we got there. We made note and the maintenance man fixed them. I bought lightbulbs and replaced them. While I love the location, I will never rent off this outfit again.

the bay club is a scam!!! you will get evicted and your deposit taken for no reason they claim you have noise complants but there lying pieces of crap and you cant have more than 6 people in the room for even a second how rediculous is that.

i love this place! i stayed there for senior week 09, and im going back in three days for another senior week trip. my friends and i had a great time with a lot of space. however, my situation is a little different then most of the people who give this place negatvie reviews. my grandparents own a timeshare, so we had little involvement with the management other than check in/out. the girls next to me, though, came to warn me that management used their key to enter the room as they pleased, and even evicted two of the girls for having alcohol. i immidiately called my grandparents and they assured me that the management was not allowed to do that to me, but the rest of the week i kept my eye on the managers. they walk around the place constantly, and look pretty sketchy. but like i said, i had nothing to worry about. so if you have nothing to hide or your own the unit via a timeshare or something similar, i can almost quarantee you will enjoy the place. its in a great spot, with great views of the bay, and a really clean, nice unit. but, if youre renting, beware of the management! theyre always lurking lol
