I know many Econo Lodges and Motel 6's can be sketchy or in run down hoods....but this one is very safe and clean. Lots of families there when I stayed so its popular and appears safe for them. Pool was nice, breakfast was continental (breads, muffins, cereals, but no proteins). Rooms were clean but average for what you expect in... More

Okay, the hotel was a non-chain hotel a decade ago and was pretty sketchy. They redecorated and...its still pretty sketchy. The place is right next to a casino and so you get to deal with the dregs of drunken humanity shouting, sometimes fighting and loud outside the hotel. So, yeah, not a family establishment. But what really grinds my gears... More

I am sorry that there was some misunderstanding concerning our pet policy. Calling the 800# goes to central reservation not the hotel directly. Their agents may not be clear on what our pet policy is. It is described on our web site and states that we take only dogs, (any weight). We have a limited amount of designated rooms for... More

Needed an overnight stay during a very busy Bellingham weekend. Many motels booked up in advance or available at highly inflated prices. This large Econolodge had availability at higher summer rate, convenient off/on freeway location, fairly quiet in spite of so many guests, hard working friendly staff, breakfast buffet constantly replenished. No complaints for our one night stay but not... More

My wife and I stayed there - were in Bellingham overnight for a quick shopping trip. Must have been a few things going on in town, because we couldn't find a reasonably priced room anywhere. Found this one, had never stayed there before, but basically just needed a place to sleep for the night so decided to try it. It... More

fast and courteous front desk staff. Very standard economy rooms. I was just looking to beat the high prices of other Bellingham hotels as there was a large bicycle function in town. Mission accomplished.

I guess when I walked into the lobby and a large, unfriendly looking woman was folding linens in her lap right behind the front desk, I should have known what I was in for. We booked a non smoking room but, when we checked in, we were told we had a smoking room. I stated that we had booked non-smoking... More

Was just in for a quick overnight, and as I was not familiar with area wanted something close to the I5. Econo Lodge fit the bill! Was just off the interstate and very close to Bellis Fair mall. Check in was slow, but that was due to time of day (5pm, prime checkin time) and volume (lineup and phones constantly... More

Only stayed for one night before travelling to Seattle. We arrived late but check in was quick with friendly staff. The room is a good size with a small fridge, TV and even a microwave. It is showing signs of age and wear and tear especially the bathroom but clean which is important. The air con was working well so... More

Enjoyed this hotel! Clean & inexpensive! We've stayed here several times- if there was a problem, the friendly staff was quick to fix it! Very comfortable beds, awesome outdoor pool. Easy to find! We will stay here again & have recommended this place several times!

We were happy to see a small fridge in our room as we had a lot of food that needed to be kept cold & some ice packs that needed to be refrozen. We turned the fridge to high & checked it later. It didn't seem to be getting cold so I figured I had turned the dial the wrong... More

I am so sorry for the inconvenience caused by the miss understanding concerning the fridge. We are a green hotel, so try to conserve energy by leaving the fridge and microwave off when a room is unoccupied. We try to mention the power bar to all our guests, but once in awhile we forget to tell everyone. We do however... More
