Very little was even OK with this property. I wasn't in charge of the booking and thought, how bad could it be? Well, bad enough that I should have checked it out more. The place is way past it's prime and the amount of noise was ridiculous. There seem to be many other options close by, try anything else but... More

Our family stayed at the Bellingham Lodge as part of a large group in the area for a soccer tournament. We should have considered ourselves warned when the Boarder Guard told us to make sure we locked our doors after we told him where we were staying. We were warned again by the hotel front desk staff to not let... More

My Husband and I and our 9 month old son stayed there for 3 nights and the stay was great. The staff was very friendly. The pool is small but not that bad. The beds were comfy and the rooms were clean. And the cleaning lady was very nice. Nothing bad to say about the hotel.

The smell,stained carpet,walls and furniture had us checking out an hour after checking in. I feel like im contaminated and im actually honestly worried I may have a bug or two from there. I do not suggest staying here at all. My husband and.twin boys are happy to be home.

This was my last night of a 5-day road trip and all I needed was a cheap clean bed. What I got impressed me. I had already stayed in other more expensive hotels and experienced problems that the Lodge did not have. They offered breakfast with the semi-standard waffles cereal and oatmeal. However, they offered a nice touch when the... More

This property is old and in need of a facelift, but my room was clean and comfortable. for the money this hotel is a great value if you can look past the rather worn carpet and mouldings. I had a nice quiet night and a good waffle for breakfast.

Don't use garnier fructis shampoo in your room because they will accuse you of smoking drugs and call 911. We've had to wait for the police to come just to get the deposit back. This nearly doubled the cost of our room. Very unhappy.

First, I'd like to mention that we found the security / key system of the hotel very acceptable - perhaps it has been upgraded since some earlier reviews. We were also pleased to have an on-site, alert front desk clerk available for late check-in. We also were pleasantly surprised that the street noise was not bothersome (and grateful that our... More

We debated about staying due to some reviews but in the end we wanted a cheap motel with a pool, we were more than pleasantly surprised, the rooms were lovely, modern and with good facilities, the staff were really helpful and the breakfast even included freshly cooked waffles. Not only was there a small pool but also a hot tub... More

We stay at this hotel for the value, room is clean and quiet. This is an older property, so does not have all the amenities of the new hotels but location is good and cost is reasonable. They provide basic breakfast which is included in your room rate, so saves on having to stop at a restaurant. Service is good... More
