First off the beds were rock hard. The decor was a little outdated, to be fair it looked as though this was being worked on. The continental breakfast was meh. It consisted of chocolate and powdered doughnuts (the ones you buy off from the shelf at a convenience store) they had some pencil thin cream filled pastries (these were pretty... More

Shopped several hotels in this area and settled on the Bay City Inn due to location and a great price. Very disappointing, the room they tried to put us in had not been cleaned after the last guest had checked out. It was disgusting and made me wonder if anyone had even changed the sheets. Dirty tub, used washcloth still... More

The last time we were here, it was officially the Three Palms, and it was fairly dreadful. We noticed, however, that someone was making an attempt, as small as it was, to make changes, but at an alarming snail's pace. It was like they put granite sinks in the bathrooms and nothing else. Enough of what was. Here's what it... More

OMG! This place needs Anthony Melchiorri from Hotel Impossible. It has so many possibilities and if they ever got new beds I'd probably stay here again. I have NEVER, in ALL my years of traveling (40) slept on a harder bed. If it didn't hurt when I laid down it did when I got up. Needs new drapery also. Otherwise... More

They were still under a new management. Staff were kind and efficient. That was about a year or so ago. We are going back next weekend. We can't wait to see the improvements! Check our follow up comments early June.

Best place for the price. Friendly, chatty owner. Cute front desk girl. Clean beds. Good location. No HDTVs. :/ No matter, because I didn't lay around watching TV. Vending machine sells popcorn, but got back to my room to realize there's no microwave?? But still, best place in town.

They have a free breakfast in the morning with pastry's, bagels, cereal, fruit, Orange juice, and coffee (which Is offered to you in your room... More

This hotel was very clean. And the employees were very nice. Rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable. And they have very good breakfast. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. They have a very nice pool.

My husband and I stayed here New Year's Eve so we wouldn't have to drive 25 miles home after ringing in the new year. The property was clean, the staff friendly and the rate was affordable. We would recommend

I stayed at this hotel the other night while traveling late, I only need a place to sleep for a few hours. The double tree wanted $159, I got a room here for $59. It was perfect for what I needed. Looked like the hotel was under renovation, as the pool was closed & there was no breakfast in the... More
