“Delivered for what we paid”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2009

Lets be upfront. We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay on our trip around the Olympic Peninsula and The Bay Motel was just that. We were able to get a single queen room with a kitchenette for less than $80 before tax.

The place was extraordinarily clean. The room was very dated. I think some of the stuff in there was original furniture and such but it was spotless.

The view out the front was incredible. We sat out in chairs on the front lawn until it got dark just soaking in the excellent views across the Straight of Juan de Fuca.

Now the downside. The room we were in had settled over the last 40+ years or so. To make up for that they had built up the foot of the bed to try to level it our. That made the foot of the bed higher than the head and made it hard to get restful sleep. And the mattress was on it's last legs. If the bed wasn't an issue this place would have been the perfect solution to what we were looking for.

BTW the shower was awesome. Tons of volume and the shower head even had a massage feature.

Overall I would say great value. I'm pretty sure if the bed was level I could have lived with the age of the mattress. I doubt the other rooms had the same issue as they all looked pretty level.

The Bay Motel is a 1960's style drive up to your room place to stay. My room came with a nice sized bedroom, closet space, shower/tub as well as another room with a kitchenette and place to cook/eat. If you're not interested in cooking your own food (and you can bring it or shop at the grocery store 24 miles west in Neah Bay) the Breakwater Cafe is literally a one minute walk. Sekiu and west is all about outdoors whether it's hiking, kayaking, fishing or boating. I found the rates incredibly reasonable and it even came with cable and wifi. Everything was clean and while the furniture is not state of the art, it reflects the general culture of the area.

Clean and quaint room, with magnificent view of the Straits of Juan de Fuca. Management friendly and helpful, employees were charming.

The location is great, but the room smelled of pinsole and something that took us two days to figure out and an entire bottle of Febreeze extra strength to figure out. Someone had left fish in the frig and it spoiled, whoever cleaned it didn't get the smell out. We opened the frig on the second day there and almost passed out from the smell. We put the frig outside that day, room smelled 100% better in an hour. We couldn't change rooms because it was Memorial weekend and nothing else was available in the area. We were unable to have a face to face with the managers so we called when we got home. They said they thought it was us who had left the fish in the frig. There wasn't any fish in the frig just the smell...when we checked out. They didn't offer to reduce the bill or even apologize for the inconvenience. The beds are like plywood on springs.

Extremely clean and comfortable, The Bay Motel does exactly what it says on the tin and does it very well.

It is not a luxury hotel with frills but provide a comfortable and very clean base for those seeking accommodation in the area.

We were apparently in one of the "smaller" rooms ( as I wanted a bath tub rather than just a shower) but I can't say we noticed as it turned out to be a suite with kitchenette , all equipped with fridge, microvave etc...and sitting area.

Also perfectly located next to the Breakwater restaurant for breakfast or dinner.

The area is really lovely and we were lucky enough to see some Grey Whales just off one of the beaches and Sekiu is an excellent base.
