We booked a couple nights here while uploading our son in college at nearby Western Washington University. The place was just perfect. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff were kind and helpful, the free breakfast was actually a full meal and not a few stale muffins and a coffee machine and the location was a perfect base for...

My friend and I stayed here for one night because we were flying out of Bellingham the next morning. For some reason, Bellingham motels are ridiculously expensive in the summer, and I spent quite some time finding anythuing for under $100/night. Finally got this hotel for $90/night on hotwire. When we arrived we were told by the woman on the... More

I am shocked to hear how "borderline incompetent" you felt your stay with us was here at the GuestHouse Inn; especially because we pride ourselves on superior customer service. I see that you stayed with us in July; I would love to know the date that you stayed so I can correct any customer service flaws that may be happening... More

i came into town not knowing that some big bicycle race was going on. I lucked out when they got a cancellation cause I didn't want to drive any further. Great convenient location. I parked and walked into town for dinner and cruising thru town. the room was great, clean and quiet. I would stay again!

The cost was reasonable for the area, and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have encountered in a motel. I felt our queen room was spacious and the entire premises was very clean. The breakfast offered a terrific choice, warm or cold cereal, waffles, fruit, eggs, pastries...very yummy and filling. I would definitely return.

This place is nothing special. The room was clean, a decent size and came with a fridge and microwave. The provided breakfast was good - lots of choices. The front desk was the minimal amount of friendly, bordering on disinterested. The room was right next to the freeway and loud. The TV made a high pitched hum and the mattress... More

From the moment I walked in I was unimpressed.An excruciatingly slow and antiquated check in, so so average room which didn't impress me in the least, an under par breakfast room, unknowledgeable front desk staff, lack of attention to details. I will go somewhere else next time.

My mother and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights for the purpose of visiting my daughter who is attending WWU. It was 5 minutes from the college, across the street from Fred Meyer, right off the freeway, and easy access to anyplace we wanted to visit.

We rented a dozen rooms for graduation and had several family members visiting from all over the country. Two of our non-smoking rooms definitely smelled like smoke, one so strong that my family member had to keep the window open the entire visit. Every room was booked in the hotel and town, so we had no other choices. When I... More
