Came here after leaving another hotel local to the area (the other hotel was like something out of a horror movie). After such a bad experience at the previous hotel, getting to stay somewhere like this really lifted my spirits. Unlike the previous hotel, this room had been cleaned...thoroughly. Sheets were crisp and white, the room even smelled amazing. Ample... More

We had no problems with our weekend stay. Staff was nice. Rooms were very clean and nice. Both nights were very quiet. Breakfast was yummy and well operated. We loved it! We will definitely stay again!

I switched to this hotel after my horrible Rodeway Inn experience. The staff is super friendly, the room was spotless and smelled fresh, comfortable bed and plenty of pillows, quiet, great shower, and convenient location. The breakfast isn't fancy, but it was convenient and did the trick (much better than a fast food option, too). Plenty of food options for... More

We decided to stop and stay at this location before venturing into BC for a quick getaway. Being platinum IHG members we were recognized as such upon check in. Our king room was appointed with all the items one would expect from HIX. The bed was comfortable with a selection of pillows to choose from. The wifi /speeds were very... More

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.
