The young man who was working the restaurant / lounge / patio...Jessie was his name...made our party of three seem like we were the only people in the whole place! There were no empty tables...he was a very busy server!!! His customer service was over the moon!! All the people at the front desk at check-in and check-out were extremely... More

Was convinced by a friend to reserve a suite here. Our daughter goes to school in Bellingham and we wanted somewhere close to stay. Upon checking in we found that we were not given a suite as per our reservation but a standard room. When we asked the staff about this they offered us no options. Fitness center is non-existent...

Hotel with excellent location, comfortable beds and exceptionally friendly staff. Unfortunately I experienced problems with the bathroom sink and broken air conditioner. Would have said it was a terrible stay, except for the fact that the Assistant Manager addressed all of my concerns and went beyond my request to make me happy. Will stay at this hotel when I return... More

This was a fine hotel for the standard chain options. It's close to downtown Bellingham and it worked well for a conference downtown. They were undergoing renovations so the fitness center was out of use. We had drinks and nachos at Poppes, which was mediocre at best, but proximity to local restaurants and bars makes up for that.

The three of us enjoyed our over-night stay at the Lakeway Inn, Bellingham. After a full day of shopping at the local stores, it was a pleasure to unwind in the indoor pool and whirlpool. Breakfast in the morning was excellent, the restaurant employees were accommodating and friendly.

The staff at this hotel are incredibly kind, helpful and accommodating. From check in to check out, they made us feel like we were the most important guests, and kept us smiling. It was affordable and comfortable. It is currently under construction, but this was not disruptive to our stay, and staff let us know when we booked that this... More

Stayed here 3 years ago for Oyster Run. Was back Sunday meeting a friend in Vancouver for a conference. The hotel is in renovation still. Will be a nice look when finished (but who picked that carpet???). It is a Best Western Plus and was surprised that there was not the normal hot free breakfast that we have come to... More

Even though the hotel is undergoing extensive renovations, there are shortfalls to the rooms. The room was a good size but the a/c system was not very effective and sounded like a small turboprop idling for takeoff. The hotel shuttle runs at odd hours, but the front desk arranged taxis that the hotel covered. There was a restaurant in the... More
