I stayed recently for two nights at this hotel. My room was very clean, decently-sized, and the hotel was quiet (ask for a room on the non-freeway side). An ample breakfast was included w/the room rate. The front desk staff were enormously helpful and friendly. Great location -- only minutes away from Whatcom Falls, downtown, the WWU campus, and Fairhaven.... More

The second night we returned to our room to find a major leak going on with the sink. The woman ( Sonja) at the... More

While this is not a high class... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this property for the price. The room was clean and comfortable, with no noise as we were on the other side from the highway. It is easy walking distance to the old part of Bellingham. The room had a fridge, microwave and coffee maker which were all clean and in good condition. It also had... More

Thank you so much for your review and the suggestion for the cable box. You are spot on about how pulling the box a bit forward does wonders. Sometimes when dusting, the box will slip back and not receive the signal from the remote. I also appreciate your candor and your kind words about our staff. They are a hard... More

Booked this stay through 'Hotwire' and wasn't disappointed to be staying here. Price was very good and it was a quick one night stay and out. Now, all I ever need is cleanliness and a comfortable bed. The Guesthouse Inn was clean but VERY outdated. Our two Queen room had a massive wall unit in it with an old school... More

We stayed there for our first time as we were flying out of Bellingham. The hotel was nice.... no complaints. They offered free parking for 7 nights, while several charged for this. They also offered free shuttle to and from the airport. They offered a hot continental breakfast but we slept in and missed it. Would definitely stay there again... More

The Guesthouse is located very near downtown and the WWU campus. It is right near the freeway on-ramps so they have easy access to everything in the area.
