If you're looking for a luxury spa, keep looking. But, if you need quiet, clean place to stay without paying for a lot of fluff and frills, give the Lions Inn a chance. Yes, it's VERY basic, but they're in process of upgrading what was clearly once a mom-and-pop type of motel. The location is convenient, the staff were friendly... More

I went there in need of a place to stay. I had heard of the reputation of the place but I really didn't have much of a choice, there was nothing else in my price range available. I pulled in after 10 pm and the new owner was there to talk to me. He told me about all the changes... More

I never got past the reservation. So here's the thing...I know it's not a four star and I know it's inexpensive but there is such a thing as customer service. All I wanted was to know the process for reserving a room. He was extremely rude. Here is the thing dude...You run a cheap hotel. You're going to deal with... More

This place must have been drastically improved since the previous reviews because I was in awe when I read them. This place is so much better than any motel I've been in. It has a couch and new bedding, clean bathroom, and a small kitchen. It is spacious and has huge windows with new shades. I don't know if all... More

My wife and I stayed just one night on our way to Whistler. This hotel had decent reviews which I now assume were written by the staff. When we drove in, of course we noticed that this is not the newest hotel in town, no big deal. We got our room (which I paid an extra $10 for the re-modeled... More

Nice and clean room with cable TV, hot water, refrigerator and microwave. Quiet neighborhood and really close to downtown. There is a store in front to buy whatever you can need (always open). Good option in Bellingham, WA

A shortage of available hotel rooms on the date we needed led us to take a chance on Lions Inn Motel. We had read the poor reviews on Trip Advisor but also saw some good reviews. From firsthand experience, the poor reviews were spot on. Although we didn't have as terrible an experience as some described, it ranks among the... More

This place is horrible. Cleanliness is not a priority to The Lions Inn. Our room smelled and was so dirty we couldn't even take our flip flops off! Completely outdated and gross. My husband and I were there for 10 minutes, only long enough to grap a phone book and book another hotel! We were so disgusted with our room... More

I wouldn't even give this place 1 star... What a disgusting place to stay. The room smelled like urine and dirty smelly feet. The sheets hadn't been changed (for quite some time by the looks of them), there was hair all over the face cloth... We tried to get another room in any other hotel/motel but there's some kind of...
