For covenience, will highlight the ups & downs of staying at Pacific Bay Hotel and hope this helps manage your expectations:

Upside:
Very convenient location (Tumon) which is the tourist area
Very convenient to tourist shuttle stop (Red Lam Lam & Sirena trolleys/buses)
Budget friendly hotel
Has swimming pool
Walking distance to public beach
Has inflatable rentals for those who wish to go to the beach
Free wi-fi in public areas within the hotel (lobby and main corridor areas)
Coin operated laundry service (washer and dryer)
Microwave use, hot and tap water available at the lobby
Designated smoking areas
Efficient and polite staff
Restaurants are within walking distance (Chinese, Brazilian, American, Fast food)
Convenience store nearby (ABC stores)
Guest rooms are spacious with A/C and hot shower and refrigerator
Basic toiletries available
Left luggage available

Downside
A relatively old hotel compared to other hotels in the area (think 80's motif and decor)
Guest rooms are not well maintained as you might notice defects or furnishings that need repair
No breakfast available
Corridors and lobby are not airconditioned
A/C needs to be maintained at a certain temperature only

All in all, Pacific Bay is worth its price because its so conveniently located. Yes, there may be other hotels that may offer convenience but expect a higher price.
I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Request for a room far from elevator and laundry room since these are high traffic areas with a lot of people coming and going and can be noisy at times.

Located in a strategic location with helpful front desk staff and late check-out time (12 noon). However the rooms we stayed were run down with rusty bathtubs, damaged taps and cracks on the toilet walls.

Air-conditioning units in the rooms produced weird noises when the temperature was turned up. No air-conditioning along corridors, no wireless internet facility nor breakfast which was frustrating and ended up having Subway on the first morning in Guam having checked in at 1:30am. Fortunately, the stay was only a brief one.

My and my wife stayed here during the Christmas season and i really liked this place. The rooms were definitely spacious and the price was extremely affordable. Guam may be a small island but the shopping/tourist area is even smaller. Pacific Bay Hotel is right smack in the middle of the shopping district which makes it easy to go anywhere at anytime. It's also a 2 minute walk from the beach! Moreover, there is an AMAZING restaurant on the first floor called Churrasco (Brazillian bbq). The next time i go back to Guam I'm definitely booking this hotel.

The Pacific Bay Hotel is right in the middle of the shopping district on Guam. As such it's
marketed as an affordable alternative to Hilton, Marriott, and Westin, which it is. As an older hotel, entirely constructed of concrete, it is solid. It offers VERY basic accommodations, and the staff really works hard to keep the place very clean. The hotel lacks amenities such as nice toiletries, free internet, washcloths, and there is no decent breakfast within a mile! But it is basic lodging for those who want to save their money for shopping. The highlight is the restaurant CHURRASCO located in the ground level, which is one of the BEST dining spots
on Guam. Bottom line - location, location, location. Staff tried SO hard to make my stay pleasant.

Room Tip: All rooms get some roadway noise, but the ones facing NORTH seem quietest.

Top two reasons to visit Guam: beach and shopping. If you want to save more money for shopping, then this hotel is definitely for you.

The location is excellent. If you like to walk a lot, you can walk the whole stretch of San Vitores Road (the high-end shopping centres & five-star hotels are here like DFS, Tumon Sands Plaza etc). You will see a lot of Japanese tourists in this area.
If you want to enjoy the beach, you can also head to Tumon Beach just at the back of Holiday Resort Guam/ Fiesta Hotel.

Room experience is average. If you just need a place to sleep-in and you'll be out all day, its not bad. But if you're looking for a room to chill and relax... it will definitely not give you the resort-feeling.

You won't have any problem with finding places to eat as there are a couple of restaurants nearby. I especially liked Churassco located at the ground floor of the hotel. It is an all-you-can-eat buffet Brazilian style... so if you're a lover of meat, you'll love Churassco.

However, if you are going to shop in Guam Premium Outlets (GPO) or Ross or Micronesia Mall (where Macy's is), then you will need transport to go there from the hotel. Cabs are quite expensive and difficult to get in Guam, so I suggest you ride the tourist bus/hop on hop off buses that takes you to several locations already. You have the option to choose different passes (1 day/ 3days etc.) according to your duration of stay. You may inquire from the hotel lobby about this.

Room Tip: There are rooms with a view of Tumon beach/ San Vitores Road.
