We stayed one night in a road trip with some friends. We were some what doubtful given some reviews but we're pleasantly surprised on check in. The motel is easy to find just off the motorway and it is just a short way into Bellingham centre. The room we got was modern, clean, nicely decorated with an enormous bed! All... More

A nice room for under 100.00. The room was not real big, just right for two people. I am a neat freak when it comes to hotel rooms. The bathroom had some hairs in the tub area which really bothers me. Outside of this the room was pretty clean. I would stay here again.

I had reviewed this property a couple of years ago and returned this week while visiting relatives in Bellingham. I was pleased to see a few updated things, but did have a couple of small issues. The room had everything I needed and seemed to have been somewhat updated. There was evidence that a couple things needed fixing like the... More

I stayed here for two nights and was pleasantly surprised. The rooms have been renovated very nicely with oversized mattresses and nice comforters. Staff was super accommodating and pleasant. I did find the wifi was bit spotty. Breakfast was fairly basic, but did have some fresh fruit, yogurt, and eggs that are not usually found on the more basic hotel... More

A large group if us stay here each year during our bicycle ride to Vancouver Canada from Seattle Washington. This year was especially nice ad they provided a hose to wash down our bikes, dry rags, cocoa,cider and coffee. They get a large number of riders each year which causes a lot of wear and tear but the folks always... More

Easy access and parking. Really clean room though a little compact. Comfortable beds, powerful aircon and easy to access ice machine makes for an easy stay. Breakfast self service and good choice including a waffle machine. Front of house staff great so can't find fault at this price.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Our room was adequate for our needs. We thought it was clean until we had to look for something....then we found an old pizza box on top of the TV, a grape under the desk and a candy wrapper under the bed. We were leaving... More

I have stayed in several places in Bellingham and this is definitely my best experience. Spent three nights and actually wished I could stay longer. The breakfast was great, the room was comfy and well-appointed. The staff was cheerful and attentive. And kudos to the cleaning staff! Super clean! This is where I will be staying in Bham from now...

I was looking for an inexpensive hotel to spend one night. I didn't need any frills, and this hotel delivered. Very convenient to downtown and the freeway, with a Fred Meyer right across the street. I was on the side away from the freeway, but never heard any traffic noise. While there is indeed wifi available in rooms, mine only... More

We were assigned this hotel when we booked through Priceline.com. We got a great deal, so didn't have high expectations based on the price we paid. We arrived around 2:00 PM and were advised we couldn't check in until 4:00 PM. We asked if we could at least check in and store our luggage so that we were free to... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I am glad we were able to make you comfortable with the exception of the window. We do have security locks on the windows, but they are never sealed. They can stick tho and take an extra nudge to open. I am sorry you experienced this. I am glad that... More
