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.

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;... More

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... More

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.

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.
