4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Clean rooms, low rates, close to the I5 and a decent breakfast. The beds are super comfortable. Like the fact that you have an option of either a balcony or ground floor patio. Have satyed here a number of times and will stay here again.

We stayed here because we've been here before for both business and pleasure. The location is excellent and the value for a Best Western property is very good. Driving distances to casinos, Bellingham, Anacortes, Arlington, and the city are all reasonable

Just off freeway, clean and comfortable. Older motel but refreshed with tidy rooms and modern new bedding. Surprisingly quiet room. Strong free wifi. Plenty of eating places in short walking distance. Friendly staff.

This is our first time to register with the new owners. They introduced themselves, made us feel welcome and attended to a few room repairs immediately. We will certainly continue to use this hotel when we have a mini vacation.

Easy to find, just off the freeway a little bit, close to many restaurants and shopping. Very comfortable beds and a continental breakfast with many choices. The pool & hot tub are outdoors, but were open (to my daughter's delight).

We stayed at this hotel as a group for a high school competition nearby. They were wonderful in accommodating us. The rooms were spacious and clean and the kids really enjoyed the pool. The breakfast room is a little small but well stocked enough for a group of teenagers!

This hotel is an older Best Western that could use a little update. The hotel was close to the bowling alley where by granddaughter was in a tournament. The rooms were a little small but we all slept well.

Even though a credit card was offered at check in for the hotel files, the card was not used to pay for the room in place of the customer using cash. The check in women imposed a $200.00 deposit fee and said it was being levied since some customers commit theft of hotel services and property.. Note; I am a... More

The staff were very pleasant and responsive to our needs from the plugged toilet to sending them a note regarding a very strong odour of stale cigarette smoke in the room. The room was clean, beds were OK, breakfast was OK to get you going in the morning but the stale smell was over powering. The Manger responded immediately to... More

We are a non-smoking motel and smokers are required to smoke at least 25 feet away from the building. Unfortunately, from time to time, some guests will smoke in the room or have a heavy smoke...

It's not fancy but it was clean and had a comfortable bed. The only reason that I rated the sleep quality as a 3 was because I heard several trains during the night even with ear plugs. Reasonably priced: we got a king-size room for about $85 (including tax). Our room had a walk-in tiled shower but no tub: that... More

Dear MesaMac, Thank you for the review of your stay with us. While we are happy to hear your room was clean, bed comfortable, Wi-Fi good and shopping/restaurants convenient, we're sorry to hear that the local trains disturbed your sleep throughout the night. we do have some non-poolside rooms on the west side of the building that are more protected...
