“Old but clean, a little loud, fair value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

Stayed 1 night due to overnight layover in Guam.

Fair value for the $65 we paid, but only good for sleeping (and bring ear plugs), no other amenities at hotel.

Pros:
Great location for shopping. Right behind the Duty Free Shopping mall (not a location for those looking for secluded beach holiday type lodging).
Water pressure in shower was fine.
A/C works well, but is turned off when you're not there, so everytime you come in it takes 20 minutes to cool the room down,

Cons:
Requested a crib for the room, was told at check in they don't have cribs. Not a huge problem for us, but for some families finding out at the last minute that they don't have cribs despite requesting one in the online reservation could be hugely problematic, not just a service blunder.
Creaky soft mattresses.
15 minute walk to beach through parking lots.
No restaurant in hotel, but food options close-by.
No gift shop, but ABC store is a 10 minute walk.
Tile floors and hallways cause sounds to echo through hotel, if someone closes their door on your floor, you hear it. If some coughs, you hear it. Bring ear plugs.
Signage to this place is horrible. If you aren't familiar or have a good map, prepare for a little frustration.
No wifi.

Ok room if you don't plan on spending a lot of time in your room. Very old and the bathroom was stinky and very dirty. Bedspreads were nasty and stained up so I would suggest that anyone coming here to bring your own pillow and blankets and wash rags because they don't supply any. The view was nice and close to shopping and the beach if you dont mind walking up a very steep hill. The springs in the bed dig into your side and back when you sleep... not too comfortably if you ask me. No microwave in the room so dont plan on saving any of your expensive food, although, there is a community microwave by the reception desk... weird. Overall, just ok... you get what you pay for.

The reason I can't vote it with more stars is, well, I value those stars and I tend to use 4 and 5 stars on great stays.

But that doesn't mean Tuman Bay Capital Hotel is mediocre. You get what you paid for here. The room is large, clean and good air-conditioning. Water, fridge and and everything works very well.

The furniture maybe old, but it's not a problem for short stays. TV is kind of outdated. The sliding door on the balcony may not slide very well, but when you get used to it, you know how not to break it.

The view from the balcony is, well, sub-par because other hotels have better positions. But, hey, it's not as bad as you think. You can still see the ocean and the sky while lying on your bed!

Parking is easy.

Room Tip: To get a better view, choose the top floor. It's already on a hill but you will be higher than o...

I stayed in Guam for 2nights at the Tumon Bay Capital Hotel. The hotel was really good for the price. It's located in the central of shopping heaven. The staff was really good and the view was amazing. You are surrounded by all sorts of entertainment. When I visit Guam again I would most definitely choose the hotel once more.

I stayed at the Capital for 3 nights with a late check out on the last day. As the hotel was not full, they allowed me a 6pm check out for an additional $20 - which was good value. The hotel does not offer airport pick-up and drop off but has an arrangement with a private taxi that offers this service for $15 each way (which is much cheaper than flagging down a regular taxi). Call or email them before you arrive to make this arrangement

Overall, it was good to find a budget hotel with huge, clean rooms right in the heart of Tumon. The hotel is located right at the top of a hill past the Plaza Hotel and Tarza Water Park so it's a little bit of a climb from main street. By being away from main street, it's quiet with great views of Tumon Bay. There's free wifi available in the lobby (though not in the rooms as advertised) but it was a little slow in the day. Speed picked up in the evenings after 8pm.

For those looking for luxury, this is not the place to stay in - it's a little old and tired with no restaurant attached. However, for those that are only looking for a place to sleep in in the evenings, this is perfect as it's clean, quiet and centrally located.

The Capital Bay is one of our families favorite get aways. It is right nest to Tarza Water Park and near TGIFriday's, Planet Hollywood, Hard Rock Cafe, Pearl Cafe, Galleria, etc. The rooms are larger than most other hotels in Tumon and have connecting doors for families. It is very good on New Year's Eve since all of the rooms face the ocean and the fireworks. We usually stay here every year!
