I knew we were in trouble when the night attendant was speaking to me through bullet proof glass. The oddest thing ever was that I was required to give my wives I.D. with mine just to rent. Never had that happen before. We rented a non smoking room that wreaked of cigarettes. Rooms on both side of us were smoking... More

We were so lucky to be given a free night stay here by alligent air as they canceled or flight and put us up in this beautiful place. Right on the highway, tiniest rooms I have ever seen for a two double bed room in a hotel. But just as we were about to settle down with our kids my... More

Stayed with a friend and two dogs during a dog show weekend, room was cozy and maybe a little cramped for 2 people, 2 dogs, and crates. Plenty of places to walk dogs and a good Mexican restaurant close by. One negative was the couple next door who were fighting very loudly and made up several times just as loudly.... More

Service at front desk was the most pleasant part of this economical experience. Otherwise because the shower & bathroom sink were filthy it made me nervous that maybe the bed sheets may not be clean. Very noisy location. Will pay for something better next time

The room was ok, clean. The shower has issues. If I go there again I will need a foot stool to reach the shower head. It seems that they expected a 6 foot 6 inch person to stand inside that shower. The water hits the back of your head.

I am not a picky traveller at all and don't require much out of my accommodations, however, this was not a great place to stay. Unfortunately, there were only smoking rooms left and it smelled like an old night club in my room, ashtray smell, nasty! The carpets looked clean but my daughter was walking in new white socks and... More

My husband and I needed a place to stay in Bellingham last minute due to a health emergency on our otherwise relaxing trip to the Cascades. I went online and compared some of the other motels and thought there didn't seem to be much difference according to the reviews, so I just picked the cheapest one... Well, we're definitely getting... More

But no more than that. Basic accommodation. That's not necessarily a bad thing - thankfully this is still an old and crappy Motel 6 with carpeting on the floor and a real table and real chairs that are actually comfortable to sit in and a dresser and a luggage rack, and not one of their shiny new and improved locations...

Well, it was a Motel 6 and not the Hilton so why complain? In agreement with my fellow Reviewers it's not to brag about. The rates are reasonable particularly for the area. I will say both day and night shift staff were very attentive but the facility has little to offer. If possible DO NOT stay in a room on... More

Its nothing special but a place to spend the night. Same everything, clean and on the economy side. Its quite loud next to I-5 from all the traffic, as walls are very thin, so asked to be put on the non I-5 side. Pool is clean, possibly the best thing about the place. Morning coffee in tiny little cups, guess... More
