Worst service we had ever experienced, the owners were evasive and the dresser had been completely water logged. There was also a huge sticky spot on the carpet next to the bed. There were old men who walked around in there whitie tighties. Also the night shift employee was very unfriendly.

Spent the night. It was clean and basic. The staff were friendly. Small breakfast area so expect to eat in your room. Breakfast had waffles and other standards but they do include hard boiled eggs at breakfast which is a nice extra. Conveniently located.

Staff was helpful and friendly, facilities were all working, was time for laundry and the machines were fine and reasonably priced, soap was available from the front desk for a reasonable price. Nice large room, comfortable bed, clean. Quite Happy. Hard boiled eggs were available at Breakfast which always makes me happy.

Where do I begin? My stay here was damn near perfect. Keep in mind, this isn't a Sheraton or Waldorf, or even Holiday Inn; but this hotel is outstanding for what it is! This is essentially a roadside hotel; rooms are large and quite comfortable. Most importantly, the hotel is very clean. I inspect any room I ever stay in;...

I have recently returned from my 11th consecutive annual extended stay at the Bay City Motor Inn. It just gets better every time I am there. Since my 2015 stay new larger refrigerators have been placed in the rooms - new overhead lighting has been installed in the rooms - and the rooms have been painted. Lucky and his family...

We were given a scummy room on the 3rd floor with a tiny refrigerator We only booked this motel because we saw pictures online that showed beautiful rooms with large refrigerators, hair dryers, brand new beds, big rooms (even though the front desk and owners who cannot speak English said they were only 1 foot larger).

I regularly stay in motels in Bellingham. Bay City was a pleasant surprise. Room had king bed and the room was quiet. Breakfast was basic but just fine for the price. Located at south end of Bellingham.

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...

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.
