Just a comment, but if you are arriving by Amtrak before check-in time, don't have the expectation that you will be able to check in early. We were a family of four that was basically too tired to experience Bellingham just yet, so we took breakfast in the hotel cafe and camped out for a couple of hours in the... More

Great place for a weekend getaway. The staff was great. Room was very large and comfortable. The indoor swimming pool and hot tub were wonderful. Nice to have an onsite restaurant with good food and quick service.

Love this hotel. Great staff. Rooms have everything you need including free internet. Perfect location, close to freeway and downtown. I always stay here when visiting. I have never had any problems. The free parking is really nice too.

All went well. The hotel should consider a small % off the breakfast cost for guests. A computer glitch jumped my room price from $120 to $189;I assume that the glitch will soon be fixed, but it would be wise to check at check-in just to be sure; I found the error. I would stay there again.

I spend 12 nights here a year, usually 3-4 nights a time. The amenities are great. The shuttle is a treat. The front desk always help no matter what time I arrive. The pool, fitness center, restaurant, and lounge and location next to Fred Meyers are all pluses. Good price for what you get.

We reserved a poolside suite for Sunday February 23rd. We live locally, but I had a gift certificate that I had purchased at a charity auction and it was what my son wanted to do for his birthday. My husband and son went early to swim (before check-in) while I took our daughter to a birthday party. When I arrived... More

We booked a vacation to see a concert at the local theatre in Bellingham. Two days before the concert date we were told our tickets were cancelled and the concert was SOLD OUT. We were devastated. Decided to just stay at the hotel for a nice weekend getaway and enjoy the scenery. When we explained to the hotel staff what... More

As a Western parent the proximity to the school can't be beat. It's about five minutes from campus, and easy to get to and from.
