Bayview Hotel (formerly Ohana Bayview) is located on top of a hilly street that is close enough to the main road where shopping and dining can be had (plus some red-light district sights as well). Signs of the properties' previous owners are still evident in the rooms (including the cold temperature) and common areas and that ain't a bad thing because Ohana is a reliable hotel chain. The people at front desk are mostly Filipino immigrants so tourists coming from the Philippines can easily feel some degree of comfort in that regard.
Back to the room, I will rate it as acceptable, even slightly better, The large double beds may have seen better days, but at least, we never experienced saggy mattresses. The balcony in each unit is a big plus, while the lavatory's placement outside the toliet and bath area can be advantageous, especially if one is already in the shower and another one wants to brush his teeth or wash his face. As I've mentioned earlier, the temperature in our room was freezing and even after adjustment, remained cold. But this is no biggie.
Our rate included breakfast and car rental. The plated breakfast at the in-house Delmonico Restaurant was a choice among three varieties. The one with Spam was the better pick in my opinion. And the car rental arrangement was very convenient because we simply had to pick up the vehicle at the nearby Westin and return to the same spot without hassle.
All in all, I may not give a single superlative to the property, but I won't hesitate in recommending the same to future visitors to the island. Families and couples and even single travelers can take advantage of their reasonable rates. It is a safe choice for a destination like Guam. Given the same package that we got, I would say that it is value for money, with or without the Ohana stamp in their name.
P.S. For those with children or vertigo, I would suggest that you get one of the rooms in the low floors because the common balcony area leading to the units in each floor can be steep and a bit too close to the door. My mom had to push herself to the wall while walking to and from the elevator just to avoid getting a quick glimpse of the mildly dizzying height.
