A dump, plain and simple. This is the filthiest hotel I have ever stayed at. The hallways reek of cigarette smoke (even the non-smoking floor). The floor and furniture are dirty and stained. The sheets are old and thin (nearly transparent!). The construction of the hotel was very low-quality, with thin creaky floors and thin walls and doors that let... More

Im writing from a room at this Travelodge and honestly its not as bad as the other reviews say it is. Im passing through from Alaska to Oregon and needed a place to stay. The room I was given is very clean and in good condition over all. The decor could use updating and the noise from the hall and... More

This place is disgusting! The rooms are simply dirty. Also the continental breakfast is a joke. Stale muffins and cereal were a real treat in the morning! In addition the kitchen where the breakfast is served is very messy. To put it simply, the continental breakfast would be shut down if the health department made an appearance. Also make sure...

I booked this hotel on line but knew before hand that not to get my hopes up for TRAVELODGE locations, but coming from staying at the Travelodge Seattle University which was superb, I was not too worried. Great location off highway and slightly secluded and near by all types of ethnic restaurants, gas stations, and a variety of shops. As... More

I booked this hotel online. I have stayed in Travelodge's many times and have always found them to be perfectly fine for an overnight stay. I assumed (wrongfully) that there is some kind of quality control when it comes to chains such as this. This motel was in one word GROSS! If it wasn't for the fact that we got... More

I read a lot of bad comments about this place but stayed there anyway since the price was the lowest around. I found this place quiet, clean, and more than adequate for a quick 2-night stay. Now I wouldn;t want to make a vacation of the place, it isn't a good honeymoon spot or a place to take your spouse... More

Booked a room for Saturday night, because of the great value. After reading some of the highly negative reviews, I must admit I was having second thoughts. But, we forged on ahead, and we had a great stay. The room was very clean and comfortable, bathroom was spotless, a nice quiet location, and we slept very well. Very friendly, helpful... More

If you want a good night's sleep, don't stay here. You can hear the people in the room above you walking around and using the washroom. The room was not cleaned properly at all, the cleaning staff must've made the beds and walked out. The tub was still dirty, there was an old coffee cup still left on the table... More

Several friends and I stayed at the Bellingham Travelodge overnight while attending a nearby soccer tournament. For the price we paid and what we needed, this hotel suited us just fine. The room was very basic and had exactly what you'd expect from a hotel room: beds, TV, phone, closet, towels, soap, and shampoo. Most important, though, was that the... More

Due to WWU's graduation weekend this was literally the last room in town. It was dirty from the slime covered door knob to the soiled sheets. Standards are low or Travelodge does not police their franchises. From the mold under the bathroom sink to the severe stinch of smoke the room was a toxic dump. This hotel is runned like... More
