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.

Convenient during a roadtrip. Very friendly staff and comfortable beds. There's a very nice Japanese restaurant across the street and some fast food options nearby. A very basic breakfast is included in the room rate.

I recently stayed at the Bay City Motor Inn in Bellingham, Washington while moving my son out of an apartment near Western Washington University. The Inn was quiet and convenient to his location and the price was exceptional. Most of all the staff was very helpful and accommodating during my stay. The morning breakfast was slightly small but I was...

This hotel was decent, but nothing to write home to Mom about. The owners, who run the front desk were very pleasant welcoming. The rooms were a little weathered, however they were clean. There weren't a lot of amenities in the room. They gave only one envelope each of shampoo and conditioner and one tiny bar of soap. I understand...

Hotel is very run down. The workers are very rude and the owner thinks all of the customers are cheating them out of money as I was accused of lying about having pets, which I don't have. You also get charged $10.00 a person after one adult- which you don't know about until you show up. Even though I paid...

The quality was so nice with great attention to details, especially considering the price. Later, we stayed in a place next to it, and we saw the difference in quality. Although, the other place has a very good rating.

I have recently returned from my 10th annual extended stay at the Bay City Motor Inn. It was the best one yet! The motel looked better than ever with noticeable improvements since last year. Lucky and his family and staff are always friendly and courteous and helpful. They continue to do an absolutely outstanding job of offering clean and comfortable...

We booked this place the weekend before after we canceled the crack hotel in Arlington. Nice clean room and very fair on the price. Service was god and breakfast they provided was also good. We will return if we are in the area again. We might have saved $38 if we booked direct as the bill copy he provided was...

This well run and conveniently located motel is just 10 minutes from Bellingham airport. The room was clean and well appointed. $55 includes continental breakfast. Thai restaurant across the street was excellent.
