8/10 Very good

Great price and comfort
The check-in process was fast and easy, the room was clean and comfortable and just what I needed for the night. There are several restaurants within a few minutes walking distance which was convenient as well, and it is within a couple of minutes from I-5. I would recommend Bay City Motor Inn and would stay there again.

4/10 Fair

charged me extra for a 3rd person?
This place charged me extra $10 per night for a 3rd person for 2 queen beds room. It says up to 4 people. What gives? There are more honest places nearby. Also, their breakfast was joke and the hair dryer was broken.
