I was looking for a place to sleep in Bellingham & went to the highly rated Best Western only to find that they were fully booked. I then found the Guest House & they offered me a spacious single room close to the lobby & breakfast room for under $100.00 including tax. This was a lucky find for me. Everything... More

Good value for money at under $80 per night. The room was a little on the small side for the amount of furniture in there (mainly caused by a HUGE tv unit), but it was clean and the bed was comfortable. Room had a fridge, microwave and coffee brewer. It's about 15 minutes easy walk to downtown Bellingham. The location... More

- As what the previous reviews said, the waffles were amazing! Free breakfast! - Value for money, about USD$80 per night for 3 people (2 queen size bed) - This hotel would only be convenient for guests who have a rental car, it is not very accessible for people without a car. - There is a big giant supermarket and...

Stayed here on our way to Whistler, clean room, very comfortable except for the pillows which were not good ! Staff were friendly and helpful. The only downer was the very noisy fridge which we had to turn off to sleep, but at least it had a fridge

LOVED this hotel! The Guest House is excellent value. I booked on-line for a very good price and was a bit worried that it would be run-down and seedy. I was happily surprised to find it was cheerful and clean with all the amenities, including a very comfy bed. The hotel staff was very pleasant and the breakfast waffles excellent!... More

This is a budget style motel right off the I-5 in Bellingham. The reception was cheerful and efficient, the room was small with a single queen bed but it was comfortable and the pillows were even quite good. The place was very clean. The free continental breakfast was really not good, starting with the cheerless room in which it is... More

Without a reservation, we were fortunate to get a room. The room was ample size, had comfortable beds, and a complimentary breakfast. It's situated right by the I-5 so the highway traffic was non-stop noise. The staff in the breakfast room were efficient and friendly. The front desk staff were incompetent and very slow; they had trouble putting through one... More

Stayed one night. Wouldn't stay for more. If you're flying in or out of the airport, or visting WWU, this a good place to stay. Rooms are small, but clean. Can't stay I recommend the breakfast. Good solid room for the money.
