We had a nice overnight stay here in a recently updated room. Two very comfortable beds, nice clean fresh decorations, window that opens about 2 inches, large fridge, microwave, coffee and tea. Lovely fresh smart bathroom with new fittings, new carpet, curtains, etc. Room had nice fresh smell. It was also very quiet, although it looked out over the parking... More

Last minute reservation - we were lucky to get a room due to the Bellingham snowstorm and thousands without power. The hotel is undergoing a major renovation but once in our room, no sign/sound that work was in progress - our king deluxe was one of the recently finished rooms equipped with coffee maker, fridge, microwave and even a bag...

Due to a power blackout, we stayed here for one night. What a pleasant surprise! They were undergoing a renovation which affected our floor but certainly not our room. It was beautifully redone with a coffee maker, large fridge/freezer and microwave. The large screen TV and FAST free WI-Fi was a welcome treat after 2 days of intermittent power. In... More

Unfortunately, our plane had issues and therefore we had an unexpected stay I'm Bellingham rather than our destination, Maui. We were devastated but the nighttime cookie, friendly staff, good clean comfy beds and fabulous breakfast made us very welcome and we would stay again. They are renovating their pool but we were too tired to worry about that! If you... More

I want to preface this by saying that I'm a Platinum member of Priority Club and I redeemed points for my stay. The hotel was easy to find and in good condition while undergoing a renovation.

Stayed here two nights. Have stayed here before. The best thing is that they allow pets and since I was attending a nearby dog show that was important to me. Parking is very convenient to the rooms. Very nice breakfast including hot foods, eggs, bacon and biscuits and a pleasant breakfast area. The staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel... More
