Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The best motel in Geelong. My dad had heart attack and was in hospital. Bay City motel is so close to Geelong University hospital. Just a short stroll. The lady in the reception is so nice and helpful. I stayed for few days, room was serviced everyday. The cleaning lady was very friendly. Room was freshly renovated. Beautiful bathroom and high pressure hot water pressure. Love this place. Will come to stay next time in Geelong

Do not book here. My booking was cancelled 20min before I arrived and was told they had rebooked the room. So incredibly rude and unhelpful. We stayed at the Eastern Sands who accomodated us last minute. Eastern Sands was very clean and comfortable. Suggest a stay at Eastern Sands instead!!

My son and I had a very unpleasant experience during our stay, so much so that we left a day early. The host was rude and most unhelpful (she probably should reconsider her choice to work in the hospitality industry) when we couldn't make it to our accomodation in time for check in, caused by unforeseen transport delays out of our control. Unbelievable that there is no solution for late arrivals e.g. key lock box. The room was spacious but the wafer thin walls made the noise and loud music coming from the guests next to our room, it seemed like we were at a Nightclub. In fairness to the host the music was turned down after her second request was followed. Smoking on the balcony seemed to be encouraged given the placement of the ashtrays less than a satisfactory distance from room doors. The room was clean and in a good location with onsite parking. Unless it has changed hands I would think twice about staying here.

Please do not book at this hotel! I booked a room in this hotel on an official website. It was stated that reception was open until 9pm but if I arrived later a request would be sent to the hotel. I specified that I will be there at 11pm, the hotel confirmed my reservation and made me pay for the room then they sent me an email explaining to me that it was not possible and that they would not refund me! I find that outrageous. They stole $210 from me and when I call them they won't talk to me and hang up the phone Book another hotel if you don't want to waste your money

The service at this hotel is the most disgusting I’ve ever encountered!! Pre covid I was a travel agent for 7yrs and I’ve seen it all but this lady takes the cake… The owner is more than happy to take your money but you won’t get to stay here as she refuses service to let you check in and she won’t offer a refund as there is no flexibility or understanding!! The hotel is run down and if you’re looking for a place to stay in Geelong then save your money and stay elsewhere!!

Hotel was pleasantly located. The room itself was not too bad, all the things you need on a short stay. With the exception of WiFi. Which can be purchased at an additional cost. Despite this, the noise from neighbouring rooms was intolerable. Hearing neighbours shower throughout the night, cough, walk around and many more familiar noises. We did not get a pleasant sleep and shall not be returning to this motel.

I don’t recommend this motel. The final straw was being woken up by the people above us showering at 3am, could literally hear everything from as soon as they turned on the shower to them dropping the soap. The chick above woke us up at 6am with her emphysema cough which was non stop. Paper thin walls. Avoid being downstairs if you can, you will hear all the footsteps, cars driving in, car doors closing, doors opening and closing as well as every single toilet flush. The blinds don’t knock out all the lights so you’ll catch a glimpse of every light at night. I didn’t like the fact that all my card details were written down on paper including ccv. The room itself isn’t too bad, bed was basic, sheets were bad, it all seemed pretty clean besides the remotes, there seemed to be a lot of dirt in between the buttons.

Great hotel. Our room was upstairs. Clean, comfortable and spacious room. Excellent friendly staff. The location is perfect for a stroll down to the bay to walk along or into town to the many restaurants or shopping.

Bay City has comfortable and clean rooms at a very attractive price. Off street parking, and conveniently located just a five minute walk to the centre of town. If you are looking for a well priced comfortable bed, this is the place for you.
