Reviewed 15 August 2012

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...

I've stayed here a few times as a place to crash while in Bellingham for the weekend to shop. The rooms are big. The place is old and musty but the rates are great. It's the rate that keeps me coming back. Everything else seems tolerable.

We enjoyed our stay In Bellingham at bay city. Very nice,people were great and we felt safe. It is well worth it to stay there. We have a place of our own in Alaska and safety and clean is always our main concern. Good price also. WOULD STAY THERE AGAIN!

I came here and paid for a week, since it clearly states they have internet. Now for $360.00 for a basic room with free internet, how could you go wrong? But to my discovery, there wasn't a connection, so i complained to the front desk. several days later, still nothing resolved. One excuse after another with no one fixing the...

Clean establishment with helpful staff. Good value for the dollar. The walls are rather thin and our experience was a rather noisey night of it from the noises next door. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was enough to get you started for the day. I would try this establishment again ...

Staff was pleasant, but found they seemed to turn a blind eye to the seemingly questionable activities going on. What appeared to be drug addicts and alcoholics where hanging out in lobby in morning, people using facilities that staff stated were not occupants, yet didn't ask them to leave. Noisey 3rd floor long term tenants. Questionable looking characters hanging out....

Clean, basic room, friendly owner. Near other motels, restaurants and the Western Washington University. No complaints, I would stay here again. Breakfast was coffee, juice, pastry, cereal.
