Our front desk check in person was really friendly and made us feel welcome. This hotel is a bit older but it was still very clean and cared for. My moms bed was new and comfy but mine was lumpy/collapsed and I rolled to one side. We had to catch a plane out of BLI and the front desk gentleman... More

Stayed at BayCity Hotel. The room was absolutely safe, clean and comfortable. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Continental breakfast was plentiful. The Hotel itself is a bit old but I'd go again. Priced fair. Easy downtown access. Located right off the freeway.

Stayed here for one night. Beds were comfy but the place is older - however very clean. For $80 it was s little run down for my taste. I also wonder about the neighborhood - we were concerned about having our car broken into. The highway noise was noticeable.

Convenient during a roadtrip. Very friendly staff and comfortable beds. There's a very nice Japanese restaurant across the street and some fast food options nearby. A very basic breakfast is included in the room rate.

I recently stayed at the Bay City Motor Inn in Bellingham, Washington while moving my son out of an apartment near Western Washington University. The Inn was quiet and convenient to his location and the price was exceptional. Most of all the staff was very helpful and accommodating during my stay. The morning breakfast was slightly small but I was... More

Room had sticky stuff on table and bedside table when we moved in, fridge froze EVERYTHING in it several times. Never completely vacuumed. Micro wave had little black things in it that looked like mice turds. Just some of things wrong. Spoke to desk a few times and was told they could do nothing until manager came on weekend. We...

This hotel was decent, but nothing to write home to Mom about. The owners, who run the front desk were very pleasant welcoming. The rooms were a little weathered, however they were clean. There weren't a lot of amenities in the room. They gave only one envelope each of shampoo and conditioner and one tiny bar of soap. I understand... More

Hotel is very run down. The workers are very rude and the owner thinks all of the customers are cheating them out of money as I was accused of lying about having pets, which I don't have. You also get charged $10.00 a person after one adult- which you don't know about until you show up. Even though I paid... More

The quality was so nice with great attention to details, especially considering the price. Later, we stayed in a place next to it, and we saw the difference in quality. Although, the other place has a very good rating.

I have recently returned from my 10th annual extended stay at the Bay City Motor Inn. It was the best one yet! The motel looked better than ever with noticeable improvements since last year. Lucky and his family and staff are always friendly and courteous and helpful. They continue to do an absolutely outstanding job of offering clean and comfortable... More
