My family and I were very pleased with the Bay City Motor Inn. The front desk was very helpful with resturant recomendations and other activities to do. The Motel was very clean, quiet and ooh the beds were wonderful!! Thanks Bay City for your friendly hospitality. The Andersons of Salem Oregon

Yah I'm with Bruce on this one. The beds were horrible and we all ended up not sleeping and unable to walk the next day. The kids even complained how bad the beds were. The sheets didn't fit the bed and kept coming off so we were sleeping on the bare mattress...gross! In the morning our continential breakfast didnt exist...

This hotel is very comfortable and clean. The rooms are spacious and quiet and the bed was comfortable. Very easy access to WWU. They owners were particularly aupportive and helpful when my daughter needed a safe place to stay suddenly for a week.

Do not believe any good reviews of this motel- it's totally disgusting! My worst nightmare-bed bugs! When I called the front desk to tell them what I had found they said the owner would be there in 5 minutes. I waited for about 30 minutes then told the front desk agent that I had to leave. He took my cell...

We were in this room only to sleep, and went elsewhere for breakfast. It was a decent room at a good price, which is just what we wanted. Anything better would have cost more money, and would have been overkill for the time we spent there. I would rate it as "good," but, surprisingly, that isn't available in the overall...

My husband and I were in Bellingham in August 2012 and chose this motel as it had received good reviews from Trip Advisor. We wanted clean and basic accommodation and this motel turned out to be just what we were looking for. Check-in was efficient and we were given a room on the ground floor. The lobby was spotless and...

Checked in and they tried to give us a room in the basement but we declined. In the room we got one "small" bar of soap that needed to be used for the sink and the tub. They had economy bulbs in the lamps but the wattage was so low you couldn't read at night. Went to the "continental breakfast"...

I recently returned from my 7th annual extended stay at the Bay City Motor Inn. As always, it was a most pleasant experience.. The owner - Lucky - and his family and the other staff always make me feel right at home. The rooms are spacious, clean, and well-maintained. It is an excellent value and very conveniently located. Highly recommended.

We went there because other inns were full and they still had lots of rooms availible. They gave us a room (US$ 95) in basement level. The smell in the room was terribly stuffy. We turned on the air conditioning and we couldn't handle the noise from it. The beddings were so smelly. We didn't have a good sleep that...
