After looking at the two nearby hotels with sea views that were especially pricey, this older hotel with budget rates was a real find. Someone on here was incorrectly bemoaning the fact you can't get a quiet room away from the road, which is just completely untrue as one of the hotel buildings is away from the road and face...

Hello neurotictraveler, I think you may have mistaken us for a different hotel. We're independently owned and operated by the same family that's been here since 1973. Also, we don't have a restaurant next door. Sorry for the confusion! More

I had a bad experience with one of the chain hotels in this area, so this time I decided to stay at this place, and I am happy with my decision. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The noise (that is mentioned in some comments) is not really a peoblem unless you are super sensitive. And the view is... More

After a long drive I had to stop and rest for the evening. I was fortunate to find my way to this wonderful place. The rooms are comfortable, the staff friendly and accommodating, the views are wonderful. My only regret is that I could only spend one evening here. Its the best.

This is not a prosperous town so expectations for a great hotel/motel are low... If I am ever driving through Eureka again, I would stay here again...room size is sufficient, clean and nice owners. Coffee in room and No breakfast, highway noise can distract. Can be hard to find as it sits on a hill. Bay View on second floor... More

The motel itself is very nice, clean and attractive, nice owners. The balcony on the second floor faces the bay but the main view is a very busy street! It worked ok for us, but I would stay in another city if given the chance.

Eureka is an interesting town. The location of this hotel my set you back. The rooms are large and clean. It is family owned and she is very nice. Linens of good quality. Coffee in room. No breakfast. View of the bay. It is a run down town but this is a lovely find for a weary traveler.

I hate to rate the Bayview Motel this low but I feel I must as a good nights sleep is the only reason to be there. The rooms are fantastic, clean, new even. Owners are great. The traffic noise from the street below is unbearable. All rooms would be subject to it. We were on the top or second floor... More

We loved this spot. Very nice and very clean rooms that are a very good size. It is on 101 and has a view of the harbor. He were on the second floor and had no problem with road noise. It was actually surprisingly quiet. We are feeling comfortable trying more independent hotels now that reviews are available on Tripadvisor... More

When we pulled in, the neighborhood look a bit sketchy. But the motel was great. Roomy room, had a door out to the little porch, frig with bar sink (which was separate from the toilet/shower area -- always a big plus!). We were on the second floor, and didn't hear the road noise from 101 during the night. Went for... More

Our family normally stays in chain hotels - likely because it's a safe choice. I can tell you that this experience opened us up to family run places in the future. It was exactly as described - spacious, well appointed, and lived up to the photos. We used this motel as a base for exploring northern CA for a few... More
