I really love the Chrysalis Inn in Bellingham. I would stay here every time I drive up to visit my daughter at college ,except for 2 tiny problems. They generously provide a pet friendly room- it's really clean, too- so I can bring my daughter's 2 small dogs to visit. The problem is you can not leave pets alone in... More

I needed some time off and chose the Chrysalis Inn after a friend recommended it. There are so many great things about this place; here are a few. Location on the water is truly relaxing and includes a boardwalk which we used every morning to get our morning coffee about one half mile away. Appointments are lovely and comfy including... More

We had stayed at this hotel a few years back and were excited to return. Back then, we did not know about the trains, but they didn't actually bother us. We still love this hotel for the view, the value, and the in-room amenities... but the trains did wake us this time. I think what has changed is that there... More

We stayed at the Chrysalis Inn in 2010 so this review is dated. Loved the hotel, location was great and rooms were fantastic. We got a full view to the water and enjoyed peaceful time in the room and morning stroll on to the waterfront. The downtown is very close as well and has a lovely small cosy town feel... More

My husband and I stayed here while in Bellingham visiting friends. It was cozy, comfy, quiet, and very relaxing. I took advantage of the spa special $99 for a 90 minute massage. It was heavenly! We have a small dog we take everywhere. We were able to stay with our dog for a small pet fee. We will be back!

What a location. What a property! It is so perfect, quiet, homey,welcoming, warm, spectacular, clean, delightful, charming. Whoever owns/runs this place really has thought out the visitor experience. I knew nothing about Bellingham, just wound up there because I was stuck on the wrong side of the border after the export office was closed. Beautiful view of a gorgeous long... More

My wife and I stayed at the Chrysalis Inn & Spa the day after Valentine's Day. This was our 4th stay at the hotel as we truly enjoy the consistency and location that this hotel offers. We are residents to Bellingham, but we like to stay at a nice hotel and enjoy the town occasionally to briefly get away from... More

Stayed one night at the hotel. Didn't sample the spa. Had a third floor room that was really lovely. The only down side were the railroad tracks between the hotel and the beach. The foam ear plugs by the bed were probably an obvious clue as to what was to come. Fairly noisy trains would go by every few hours... More

If you have a chance to visit the great northwest and you would like to see what’s north of Seattle then Bellingham Washington and Fairhaven could be a good choice. I selected the Chrysalis Inn and Spa to stay at primarily due to the easy drive from Seattle and Tripadvisor reviews. I believe this hotel & spa lived up to... More

We were so excited to stay at the Chrysalis Inn for a little R&R in the middle of a busy weekend. We thought that we would be treating ourselves to something nice, but instead we were throwing away our money. When we first arrived we were pleased with the cleanliness of the room, the view of the water, and the... More
