4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

The owner was a joy, friendly, helpful and wanted to get to know me as a person. Helped me pick out places to eat and what I should avoid around town. Room was cute and cosy, great for a single guy there for a few days. Decent prices and not too far from Downtown. If I ever go back to... More

Having moved to Bellingham, we stayed in the suite at the Lions Motel for two weeks waiting for the moving truck to arrive with our household goods. The new owners went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable, ensuring we had a well equipped kitchenette, cozy sitting room and comfortable bed (with a brand-new mattress). Even Starbucks coffee!... More

Every time we come to Bellingham, we have stayed at The Lions Inn. The first experiences with previous management was truly awkward. When we arrived the last time, we were greeted in a friendly manner and received a personally guided tour of the newly renovated rooms and suites. The new owners have taken such great care of a "ran down"... More

Clean and convenient for car-less travelers since it's on a bus line! Many thanks to the new management, who accommodated us despite a reservation snafu created by the previous manager. We will stay again if we're ever in the area.

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
