We travel all over the US with various large groups. Having traveled to Lakeway for 3 consecutive years with 100-150 youth soccer players and families we have found there is no other place that can provide the level of service we have come to expect as the norm and standard. We have booked the entire hotel and asked them to... More

Staff are very friendly and helpful. it is a great location, they are under remodeling currently, however there is no work being done at night, so easy to fall and stay asleep. I use this hotel as they worked with me on my schedule and the rate. I currently stay with them at least two times monthly.

The rooms surround the pool, so the hallway was filled with chemical smell. The room was okay, Ive stayed at nicer places in that same price point. The equiptment in the 'gym' didnt work properly. Not a central location. I wouldnt stay there again.

Never been to the area before but the lakefront pictures on the website looked beautiful. There was actually a 360 degree view of a parking lot. Desk couldn't find our reservation and were extremely rude. We finally got to our room that was to be 2 queens and there was only one. My daughter pulled out the couch bed and... More

This place stinks--literally. The chlorine from the pool predominates but doesn't quite cover up the old-motel, mildew-and-disinfectant odor. What we found worse was the odor of rotting garbage that greeted us as we exited the elevator on the second floor, a smell that lasted for the first two days of our three-day stay. The room was shabby. The bathroom, thankfully,... More

Haley- We want to begin by apologizing for the stay you had with us recently. Let me assure you this is not the norm and we will definitely look into these matters. The chlorine in the pool is controlled by an automatic sensor. We will make sure this is working correctly as this should not be an overbearing smell in... More

I stayed here for one night and it was the best hotel I have stayed at in Bellingham so far. The manager Dana was a big help in getting my special requests taken care of, and the guy at the front desk that I spoke with to make my reservations, Roshaud, was a great help.

Rooms were fairly nice, comfortable beds. Don't stay on the side facing the shopping mall or you'll have the noise all night from semitrucks loading and unloading! Room service was great! The smell from the indoor pool permeates the entire hotel. Slightly above average hotel, but for the price would've expected more.

Stayed here on business and found all the staff very friendly both in the hotel and in the pub. Food both for breakfast and served in the pub at night was tasty and good value. The Mac n Cheese and Fish n Chips were my favourites washed down with Angry Orchard cider.
