Full-service hotel with amazing central atrium with indoor pool+hot tub just off I-5 in Bellingham. Super convenient location near Western Washington University and Bellis Fair Mall. Odd site, just behind a Fred Meyer at a little strip mall, but that turned out to be perfect--just walked to Freddie's for medicines as I got ill during my stay. For being just... More

We've stayed at the Lakeway many times. It's always the same - and that's a good thing! That's why we keep coming back. The rooms are nice, the staff are friendly, the location is convenient to visiting downtonw/Fairhaven/our kid at Western, and it' s affordable. Our tip: don't try to turn left out of the main entrance - instead, sneak... More

Besides the Inn being wonderfully located to everywhere we wanted to go, the rooms were spacious, clean and extremely comfortable! The bed, linens and pillows are worth trying to figure out how one can get them in one's own home! I intereacted with several members of the staff and was never once disappointed; I felt they were all just there... More

Thank you so much for the nice review. I do apologize you could not be upgraded into a room with two queens. We have been upgrading all of our mattresses and recently all of our rooms with two queens were closed because of it. In addition, I will have you know, we do not discriminate against anyone simply because they... More

We stayed here in December to do some Christmas shopping at the nearby mall. The Good- The hotel was bigger than we expected with a very nice lobby area and an indoor pool that would be ideal for those with kids. The room was very nice, clean and spacious. The bar area was good (although incredibly cold for some reason).... More

Thank you so much for the review. I am glad to hear you, for the most part, had a great time. Unfortunately the shuttle is strictly for the Transportation hubs only due to the fact the Front Desk are the only ones authorized to run the shuttle. So unfortunately if we do not have the staff on we can not... More

The service from reception to room service to the restaurents were all very friendly, cheerful and helpful. Our room was spacious and all we ever need was in there. The hotel is easy to find once you leave the Interstate and very close-by. Overall, this was a wonderful stopover, the hotel was nicely decorated for Christmas and the location of... More

Great location, lovely good-sized rooms for an especially reasonable price in Bellingham. The room was attractive, immaculately clean, quiet, comfortable, and the bed and linens were so comfortable. The room rate charge was lower than when the reservation was originally made--amazing they would honor the lower rate!! A great value here for dollars spent. You can't go wrong staying at... More

We only needed a place to crash after a late flight from Las Vegas before driving back to Vancouver but it ended up being an extension of our holiday since it was so nice.

We've stayed at this hotel three times now when attending functions at WWU, where our youngest son is now attending college. Each time the staff has been friendly and attentive, the rooms clean, and the grounds well-kept. The on-site restaurant has a nice selection on their dinner menu, and the soup was delicious! There's also a lounge with a large... More
