We have stayed here several times this year to visit WWU. It is very close to campus, downtown and Fairhaven. It is in a convenient location, close the freeway and shopping. The rooms are comfortable and clean for a moderately priced hotel. The only drawback is the pool in the center of the hotel; it can get a bit loud... More

The Lakeway Inn in Bellingham, WA has always been one of my favorite hotels. Now it has gotten even better. The lobby has been remodeled and is gorgeous. The staff is wonderful and goes out of their way to make their guests happy. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. The only negative I can say is that the bathroom... More

Room was great. The mattresses were wonderful. Breakfast was not so great. It is a beautiful hotel but the breakfast food was very disappointing. Compared to other Best Westerns this was definitely a let down.

The staff at this hotel have the BEST customer service for guest of any I have stayed at in the last 10 years. I traveled the US for 5 years with a major manufacturer and have experienced many hotel. This one by far emphasizes customer service. Several slight imperfections were noticed but nothing to refute the rating of A ++... More

Very nice hotel but if you don't like the smell of clorine stay away from that side of the hotel. Food at the restaurant was excellent. The fish and chips tasted wonderful. Stay for one night. The bed was too hard.

Rainbow- Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay with us. We are glad you enjoyed it! The chlorine is controlled by an automatic machine that dispenses as necessary. I will check with maintenance to make sure it is working correctly. In addition, we will be getting new beds this December along with many... More

We got off the ferry in Bellingham and decided to stay a night in Bellingham. Hotels were pretty booked up. We were able to get a room at this place. And it was a nice place to stay. Friendly staff, nice room, clean and an easy location to walk downtown.

Beautiful and well worth the little extra you have to pay compared to other area hotels (especially on Sammish Way). We checked out of our first hotel because of the non-cleanliness. Sleeping at the Best Western was the best choice I made. No worries with anything. It made our last day in Bellingham a very nice memory.

My wife and I have stayed here a few times. Decent hotel, decent rooms. The hotel hotub is quite nice as well. Centrally located, close to shopping. The hotel is slightly dated but all in all not too bad for the price you pay. Free DVD movies and popcorn for hotel guests is nice too. We like staying here when... More

The Inn is very close to the freeway for easy access but far enough from the highway that you're not aware of the traffic noise. A very comfortable place and the included breakfast was a very nice surprise - good selections, fast and courteous service.
