When I checked into the hotel on 6/20/15 at about 6 or 6:30am, the man behind the counter was not competent in his duties. He kept telling me to hold on when I wasn't saying or acting in any way. He said I didn't have a reservation even though I booked months in advance, had my confirmation email in hand,... More

We stopped in for 2 nights before heading to Alaska and the hotel was super nice in the lobby. We were given a pet friendly room, but asked to move 5 hours after checking in. We were given a room right down the hall but the ac was broken so we were given a 3rd room further down the hall,... More

I have to say the Lakeway Inn is getting better since the remodel. I will admit they are working through growing pains, and remodel pains. The new rooms are very nice, and the new beds are fantastic! I stay here regularly and it makes my day when the front desk staff knows my face and name! The front desk staff... More

Best Western Plus Lakeway Inn was a wonderful overnight getaway. The newly modeled hotel is beautiful. However, it is the management staff and support staff that makes this experience the best. Rooms were extremely comfortable and loved the pool with our little ones. Restaurant and bar was perfect and loved the food.

I stay at the Lakeway Inn every time I am in Bellingham. It is always clean and up to date. The staff is friendly and very helpful. They are in the middle of a remodel but they go out of their way to keep that from interfering with my comfort. There was no construction noise and the newly remolded rooms... More

The many updates recently done to the Lakeway Best Western make it an even better reason to stay here for any occasion. The new fitness center and the many other changes throughout the hotel clearly make it one of the top 3 hotels to stay it while in Bellingham. It's in a great location, just 5 minutes from either downtown... More

Looks like renovations will be finished soon, and it will be a very nice Best Western location. Beds were a tad small for a couple. Room was very clean, as was the lavatory. Bed was comfy despite being too small. Would stay again if we find ourselves in need for a place in Bellingham.

This is a great place to stay. The only negatives are minor. (1) It is somewhat difficult to access the property due to heavy traffic at almost any hour.(2) The restaurant has a limited menu and slow service for drinks. The lounge has the same menu, much better ambiance and better service.

Ted- We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! Although you found those issues minor, we will make sure they are corrected ASAP. We will be receiving a new signage package before October 1 which will hopefully fix the wayfinding issues. In addition, we will make sure the restaurant is made aware of the service issue and corrective... More

Down for a fastpitch tourney with my daughter. The fields were right around the corner and all the amenities we needed were either within the hotel or right next door. PERFECT. The bed was amazing, the food was great and the staff was friendly and helpful. 13 beers on tap??? Heaven :) Awesome trip!
