Bayview Hotel Guam3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The location of this hotel is great and the staff is friendly. It is a five minute walk to the beach, shops, and restaurants. We were able to check in early when we arrived at about 9 am, which was great. The room itself is just okay. It was fairly clean and dated. Our balcony door wouldn't open and the water only gets luke warm. Breakfast was not included, and it was $15 per person.
The location of the hotel is very good. As for the hotel itself, it's very old. We came in on the first flight of PAL and just took the chance to ask if there was a room available. The receptionist was borderline RUDE! It's like we bothered her and she did not want us there. The shower head was broken, the tiles were dark already due to wear in the bathroom. They have a good size bed though.
The location is very good and the room is very spacious, good for family travelers. I just wish that their front desk staff would be more friendly and accommodating to requests. Also, I hope the hotel will upgrade their regular blankets to comforters for better sleep quality.
Well, almost like in a hill. Situated on an elevated portion near the Tumon Bay, the Bayview Hotel Guam served our purpose of an accommodation where you can have a good sleep and a shower in a place where the major activity that one will do is shopping and dining. The 10-storey hotel, which is quite dated, boasts of big rooms, a swimming pool, and a good view of the Tumon Bay (if you're staying on the top floors). At almost 5,000 pesos per night, it has two queen-size beds and an ample space to move around. If you plan to take public transpo, I suggest you buy a 5-day unlimited bus rides on LEALEA, not Red Guahan, as it has a stop nearer to the hotel. I was quite disappointed, though, that despite my earlier requests for an early check-in, we were still made to wait for the 2PM check-in time. We arrived at the hotel at 4AM and have to wait for 10 hours before we were able to get a nap and shower. The front desk staff said the hotel is fully booked, although I doubt it since there is visibly no other tenant on the 9th floor aside from a few of the rooms. Still, the location is very good. Near the Tumon Bay (if one wants to go to a beach) and yet quite a distance from the maddening crowd that roams the various shops and restaurants along the Tumon Bay area.
It was hard to choose a hotel in the value range. They all rated high, but with reviews from it sux, to its great, was a tough choice. Overall room was clean, it great shape, I found nothing at fault. Very close to (easy walking distance to town center areas. I would stay again.
The Bayview has a very good location in Guam with a beautiful view over the bay. But that's all good to say about. There is a certain point, when even the friendliness of the staff cannot overcome an shabby building. Our room was smelling like an old cellar. It war very humid inside the room. I don't know in which decade the curtains were last cleaned. Dust and dirt was in the wooden ornament which is directly behind the bed. The bathroom facility was also very old and dirty. The walls between the rooms are as thin as paper. The pool was dirty and nobody cares about this area. The shower is broken. Pretty sad, because again, the view was nice. Actually we wanted to stay there 5 nights but we left after an awful first night. This was the best decision we could make! The other hotel was fantastic! If you really don't care where you sleep, or if it's just for one night, when you have a flight stopp it's ok. But for holidays I cannot recommend it. To the owner: Please renovate!!!!
Hotel could definitely use an upgrade. Room had a good view of the Pacific. Lots of Restaurants and shops nearby. Nice restaurant on site. If you walk to attractions, it is DOWNHILL. Which means uphill back.
We stayed here in our 5 day Guam trip. It was a fine experience but the hotel could use some improvement in infrastructure, foe instance it's elevators were quite old. The pool was also bot so well maintained. The rooms however were pretty good and clean. Overall I felt it was slightly above average experience.
PROS: Convenient location, good value for money, friendly, accommodating staff, clean, spacious, comfortable rooms with many practical amenities. Balconies with nice view of Tumon Bay. CONS: Rooms on the lower floors suffer from traffic noise. No chairs on the balconies. The hotel is showing some wear and tear, elevators and some hallways look a bit grim. We have stayed here twice, returning due to the many advantages and the good value for money. The Bayview is not on the beach, but is in a great location close to the beach, convenience stores, restaurants, shopping and shuttle buses. The common areas could use a little attention, but the rooms are clean, with comfortable beds and loads of useful things like a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, in-room safe, hair dryer, iron, mid-range toiletries plus free WiFi. Both times we stayed at the Bayview we arrived on an early morning flight, and were allowed an early check-in at no extra charge Some reviews have mentioned air con issues - we had no problem at all with the air conditioning during our stays. Nice to have a balcony, but we would have liked for there to be chairs so we could sit out on it occasionally. We definitely recommend the Bayview as a comfortable, practical option and as a base for exploring Guam.
Worst place we have stayed anywhere in the world . One week stay with no air conditioning in our room, while lobby was ice cold. Staff did not seem too concerned with our problem, while they wore jackets in the lobby. We talked to many others that had experienced the same problems. This hotel was no longer being used by the company that put us up there because of the constant problems. Parking was an utter joke, shared with restaurants out front and businesses. There was no where near enough parking for the amount of rooms and businesses. The entire week was spent in sweltering heat , and constantly looking for parking spaces. Was never so glad to leave a place, it was a shame because Guam was beautiful .
