This may be considered unfair reviewing a hotel that I had hoped to stay in but never actually stayed in. This hotel is in the middle of a remodel and is located very close to my mother in laws home. We have tried staying here on several occasions but have never had the opportunity. I tried booking online directly from... More

We always choose this hotel when visiting Bellingham. Easy access and has everything you need for meals, entertainment, fitness, pool, hot tub and most of all, it is clean, clean, clean! My husband's family lives on Lummi Island and we can stay here when up visiting the relatives. Fred Meyer is across the parking lot and you are not far... More

Normally we stay at the other Best Western in town, but this time, the Lakeway Inn had the best rates. A big bonus is that now this hotel gives free breakfast to Best Western members. The breakfast was delicious. The small round swimming pool has water that goes in circles and our 6 year old grandson loved it. We will... More

It's a good hotel, and our room did have a refrigerator. The pool is in the center of the hotel--or rather, the hotel is built around the pool. You can look down from all levels and see it. Sound travels up, so rooms around this area do get more noise at times. Hotel staff is pretty good about enforcing pool... More

Great pool and jaccuzzi and good food. Excellent bed. Actually would like to know what brand and type the mattress was. Staff friendly. Even tho they were doing construction they made every effort to make our stay great.

Stayed at this hotel for my sons college orientation. The hotel had a relaxing lobby with waterfall wall. The rooms were large and modern with nice amenities (large tv, refrigerator and microwave). The rooms surrounded a atrium style indoor pool/hot tub. There was a lobby restaurant/bar that has received good reviews though I did not use the facility. The hotel... More

Lisa- We apologize for the recent construction leading to improvements for our property. We understand how bothersome they can be and we are making better directional signs to make entering the hotel easier. All construction should be wrapped up by September 20th with a bulk done by September 1st. We look forward to seeing you again soon and we thank... More

Our daughter and family had registered a number of weeks before we did. When I called to reserve a room (3 wks. in advance of stay) I requested a room near our daughter and family. I was assured that could be done --- We were quite a distance apart !!!

Patricia- We want to apologize for your rooms not being close to each other as requested. Unfortunately, with the recent installation of our brand new fire life safety system, we lost certain rooms through the 25th which cause for constricted inventory. However, we will get with the team and make sure this is better taken care of. We thank you... More

Our family has been visiting this hotel for a number of years as regular 'getaways' and we have NEVER been disappointed in any way. We recently stayed and were amazed by the recent upgrades and renovations, Dana Weber is the Assistant General Manager and he always goes the extra mile to accommodate any of our needs. By far the best... More

We were in Bellingham for the first annual Thomas A Biddle Foundation Motorcycle Charity Ride. This being the first year we were unsure as to where to stay and just how everything would flow. The hotel that was closest to the site of the ride was not very willing to work with us regarding blocking of rooms for our group.... More

We were in Bellingham from July 15, 2015 for 10 days. We had a total of about 6 rooms. The staff, Karyn Seaverson in particular, couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. I look forward to being at the Lakeway in whenever I am Bellingham, Wa.
