“3 stars, but don't get me wrong, it's worth it”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

The reason I can't vote it with more stars is, well, I value those stars and I tend to use 4 and 5 stars on great stays.

But that doesn't mean Tuman Bay Capital Hotel is mediocre. You get what you paid for here. The room is large, clean and good air-conditioning. Water, fridge and and everything works very well.

The furniture maybe old, but it's not a problem for short stays. TV is kind of outdated. The sliding door on the balcony may not slide very well, but when you get used to it, you know how not to break it.

The view from the balcony is, well, sub-par because other hotels have better positions. But, hey, it's not as bad as you think. You can still see the ocean and the sky while lying on your bed!

Parking is easy.

Room Tip: To get a better view, choose the top floor. It's already on a hill but you will be higher than o...

I stayed in Guam for 2nights at the Tumon Bay Capital Hotel. The hotel was really good for the price. It's located in the central of shopping heaven. The staff was really good and the view was amazing. You are surrounded by all sorts of entertainment. When I visit Guam again I would most definitely choose the hotel once more.

I stayed at the Capital for 3 nights with a late check out on the last day. As the hotel was not full, they allowed me a 6pm check out for an additional $20 - which was good value. The hotel does not offer airport pick-up and drop off but has an arrangement with a private taxi that offers this service for $15 each way (which is much cheaper than flagging down a regular taxi). Call or email them before you arrive to make this arrangement

Overall, it was good to find a budget hotel with huge, clean rooms right in the heart of Tumon. The hotel is located right at the top of a hill past the Plaza Hotel and Tarza Water Park so it's a little bit of a climb from main street. By being away from main street, it's quiet with great views of Tumon Bay. There's free wifi available in the lobby (though not in the rooms as advertised) but it was a little slow in the day. Speed picked up in the evenings after 8pm.

For those looking for luxury, this is not the place to stay in - it's a little old and tired with no restaurant attached. However, for those that are only looking for a place to sleep in in the evenings, this is perfect as it's clean, quiet and centrally located.

The Capital Bay is one of our families favorite get aways. It is right nest to Tarza Water Park and near TGIFriday's, Planet Hollywood, Hard Rock Cafe, Pearl Cafe, Galleria, etc. The rooms are larger than most other hotels in Tumon and have connecting doors for families. It is very good on New Year's Eve since all of the rooms face the ocean and the fireworks. We usually stay here every year!

We just came back from 2.5-day Guam stay, quite content with the blue sky, limegreen beach with tons of fish, and useful advice from the staff at this hotel.

The hotel is located up on the hill so you'd have to walk up about 5 min from the main street, which was a good exercise for us, but compared with other hotels facing the Tumon Bay, the hotel was so quiet and tranquil with a very good view just as other reviewers mentioned, we had a very good sleep in a spacious room. The room was kept clean and we even walked on barefoot in the room just like we Japanese do at home.

We took a beach tour to the north area. They have a phone at the front desk, available for guests at the hotel and we used it to reconfirm the tour for free. I mean we didn't have to pay any extra charge by using the room phone.

We didn't have to use any troley bus, but the bus service looked quite convenient in the Tumon area and others to take you almost everywhere popular to sightsee or for shopping(We were not at all interested in shopping) for a small fee.

The Thai restaurant the lady at the hotel desk recommended to us was fabulous; food was great and plenty, not so expensive, for us dinner cost $40 per person including beer, wine and service fee.

Overall I like this hotel and will choose it again for a relaxing stay at Guam.

I stayed at this hotel in February 2007 for a few nights and I got to say this was a great hotel for the $66/night. You have towalk about 5-10 min across the street to the beach but you can not beat this value. The room was very clean, spacious, with a nice balconie overlooking the bay of Tumon. It is very worth the money you pay for it. It is near the shopping/attaction areas. The only thing I did not like was the I had to pay for my ride to the airport on my own.
