Came upon this motel by accident and got the last room. The office staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The room was large with a king bed, a sitting area, a small kitchen area (no microwave which would have been nice) and a deck although the view of the 101 wasn't the greatest still, it did have an ocean view....

Neat and tidy place that is run by a pleasant couple living in the adjacent house/ front office. We had a family suite which was a very good value considering that we were getting essentially two rooms. Glad we stayed here.

Thanks to previous reviews on TripAdvisor for showing us the Bayview. Nice big rooms, beautifully clean and a tidy property. The helpful owners gave us a pointer to the Lost Coast Brewery for a Sunday night pint and bite to eat as well as some useful tourist information for the area. Beds nice and comfy, decent wifi and easy ground... More

This was a stopover traveling up the California coast. There is not much to see in Eureka - town is very average and their 'old town' looks a little abandoned. The Bayview was very clean and well maintained. Price was very affordable. I actually had to call to book their 2 bedroom suite (we were a family of 7) as... More

This hotel is set high on a hill next to Hwy 101 in a residential neighborhood. It is an interesting entrance, essentially between 2 houses on a street, behind the houses. It is a single building, two story. We had a pet friendly room on the bottom floor and upon entry could not detect any pet odor (certain rooms are... More

Immaculately clean, fabulous views, enormous rooms, beautifully landscaped, 5 min. from Rita's Mexican restaurant. What more could you want? I travel a *lot* throughout CA, OR and WA, and Bayview is my favorite place to stay anywhere. This is a family owned / operated motel. Last time I stayed there was for 11 days. Housekeeping staff worked around my work... More

This is a very well kept, friendly spot up on a hill above Eureka. We arrived in town late and first tried one of the Best Westerns. They were charging $180 a night and we just didn't think it was worth it so we looked on Trip Advisor --thanks to everyone who has written reviews! -- and found this gem.... More

We usually avoid motels because they are not as good as hotels but this one is an exception. If you are in the area for business or pleasure, give me motel a try - you will be pleasantly surprised: it is clean and the grounds are well kept thank you. The cons: no microwave in the room, no breakfast offered,... More

The Bayview Motel is a great place to stay in Eureka. It is very clean with nice rooms, comfortable beds, and great bathrooms. We checked in late, but the couple who owns it stayed up late for us and were very friendly. The motel itself looks nice and has a good view of the bay, as its name implies. It... More

We love this little place and they let our dogs stay too! Clean, quite, friendly. It has become so popular that we couldn't get a reservation this summer and we're disappointed! We will certainly try again next summer. Meanwhile we'll try Best Western.
