The room was okay, I guess, but that is the only thing positive I can say. Trains, trains trains... You literally have a train going by 30ft from where you sleep every 30mins all night. On top of the train we got two calls, one at 11pm and another at 12 pm, neither one had anyone on the other end,... More

The trains roar buy your room constantly. NO sleeping here. Nice restaurant and great views but NOISY.if they could only move the railroad tracks away from your window if you want a room facing the water. Also the management is awkward in disclosing this info. And not honest about it. I tried to no avail..

I was impressed by the cleanliness and attention to detail in this hotel. Beautiful huge bath in our deluxe king room #216. Other reviewers mentioned the train sounds but we all found them quant when noticeable at all. I'd stay there again for sure. Great front end staff also.

We loved our get-away here. Wonderful window seat overlooking the water big enough for 2 people, deep soaker jacuzzi tub, wet bar and fireplace. We had a king suite with separate bedroom. The restaurant in the hotel (Keenan’s) is really good and they have a nice spa as well although we didn’t use it. A short walk to the centre... More

when we arrived and booked in it seems like we were given two different room numbers from two different clerks. Then it went down from there, no sleep at all the train noise was awful we were going to stay two nights, but couldn't take the noise so we booked out. The girl at the counter seemed like she could... More

We stayed one night in a 'side-view' room on a weeknight, and so far nicest place in Bellingham. Even the greyhound was welcome....a definite plus. Staff were welcoming, grounds and decor clean and bright; a fireplace in the room as well. We did not do drinks, meals, or spa....but that will be for a return visit. Adjacent to the Inn... More

Room very pleasant and my wife loved the large tub. Wonderful window spot that could have used a reading light. Restaurant offers fine food, well-paced, dinner and breakfast. Wait staff great, tried wine, not what I wanted and simply replace with no charge. Relaxing stay with great location.

Seriously. The trains are not that frequent, or loud. I actually thought it added some charm. We celebrated our first "WWU Parents Weekend" with an overnight stay and it was perfect. We enjoyed Happy Hour watching the outstanding sunset with delicious snacks (enough that we made a meal out of it! Must have the truffle fries!) and refreshments. Love the... More

My wife booked this for our daughter + 2 babies and us on our way to a celebration of life for my sisters husband on Lumni Island. We absolutely loved it. The restaurant was very accommodating of the 2 & 3 year olds, and got us in and out quickly which was exactly what you want, and the food was... More

This is a very peaceful and beautiful hotel. The atmosphere is cosy and the view spectacular. Make sure to book and ocean view room. The lobby is very warm and the food in the restaurant is great. The only issue is that the train goes by at night. If you are a light sleeper, it may not be for you!
