Like others, I was hesitant to stay because of some of the poor reviews, but the given the proximity to the airport I went for it. Let's see: you can stay at the Hampton Inn next door for $150+ or here for a third of the price! Beyond the excellent price point, in a day of dying Mom and Pop... More

I didn't stay but my brother refused to go, and so I left him here to go it alone...I cried when I said good-bye... my tears were not for missing him; they were for having to leave him in such a dump..The area is not the best...STAY AWAY! There are many other places to stay in B'ham...Stay away from the... More

We stayed 1 night on our way to Hawaii. After reading the reviews we weren't sure as to what to expect and were pleasantly surprised.The room (No. 246) was modest and clean, the staff were pleasant and very helpful. Bonus free parking for our stay in Hawaii and shuttle to the airport. Good value for the money. We will stay... More

We stayed here on route to Palm Springs via the Bellingham airport. The motel far exceeded expectations. It was very clean and spacious, with microwave and fridge in our room. Their customer service is first class all around. We left a brief case in the parking lot as we were leaving to go back home (unloading from the cab into... More

Ended up here by an unavoidable event by whinny border guards shutting down the border, therefore we were stuck trying to find a place for the night. Shamrock green is the theme, even the TV picture is green! Check in is "with toilet paper or not?" Buttwipe is $5.00 extra..... Didn't take our clothes off here, too disgusting, skid marks... More

Me and my children stayed for 3 days and found the location , services and price very good , what we pay we should expect to get the same. I went from surrey and I will use the same place all times. The owners have told us that we could stay here park our car and fly as well. So... More

We stayed at this motel December 1st to 3rd 2012. Room was well priced, service was excellent and the location is very good. The openers were very good to us, they installed brand new TV as soon as we took the room. They told us the TV was working but since we took the room for 3 days they replaced... More

Owners were very friendly with me. I asked for extra towels and they had no problem giving some to me. Room was clean, the place around noon was loud due to traffic and other people, but in the nighttime it got pretty quiet. Free wifi was ok. Bed was fine, sheets were clean. Parked my car for a week and... More

I will be brief as others have pretty much said it all. This place is nasty, run down, shabby and filthy with very sketchy clientele. The carpet was toxic and the bed was well beyond its useful life. We stayed overnight to avoid a rush at the boarder while getting to our Vegas flight; it was a huge mistake. My... More
