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

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

Love to relax in the sauna/steam rooms before my spa treatments. Services are always exceptional. Great place to go with my husband for a couples massage or with a girlfriend for a facial. The pedicure room overlooks a stream- very tranquil. They also have monthly specials to draw me back.

Beautiful Hotel overlooking Bellingham Bay. It was so nice to wake up to a beautiful view of the bay with sailboats and kyaks on the water. My wife really loved the window seat. The room was spacious, the bed ultra comfortable and the bath very classy. We didn't take advantage of the spa services on site but talked to other... More

My wife and I went out to Bellingham to visit our new grandchild and also to have a little Rand R. Enjoyed the time, great facility, staff,,and spa. Food was ok, not like wow though. Overall very enjoyable time was had by all of us. Would go back next time we're there.

This is one of my favorite smaller hotels in the state. the views, room and charm of the Chrysalis make it a great weekend getaway. The spa is well equipped and getting a pedicure in the room overlooking the stream makes it a peaceful escape. The staff has always been friendly and super accommodating with questions. I've never had issues... More

So many titles were considered for this, but I figured a bit of direct advice might save some of the potential visitors from a painful and disappointing experience. Short version- LOUD trains. Lack of privacy for first two floor rooms. Loud lobby area. Lack of disclosure from management before booking. Great views. Good sized and well appointed rooms. DO NOT... More

We stayed here for three days on our move up to alaska. Our room was huge with plenty of room for us and our children. My kids particularly loved the bed in the window that overlooked the boardwalk. So beautiful! We heard the train, but it wasn't bothersome. Our room was huge and clean, fresh towels and bath robes. No... More

I was in a room located on the side of the bldg. on the first floor. The room was comfortable with an above average bathroom. The fireplace and window seat were nice amenities. Restaurant was nice with serene views onto the water and looks towards the San Juan Islands. Food service was slow on the first visit but improved on... More
