Best Western Lakeway or Comfort Inn?

We will be arriving (and departing) in Bellingham on Amtrak for 3 days.

Thank you.

Just to avoid the confusion I had when I first moved here. There are two Fairhavens. One is a part of town (you'll come into that part of town if coming in on Amtrak) and the other is Fairhaven the college within WWU.

I also thought of this - if you are here mid-week, if you are interested, you can call ahead to arrange a tour of the Mount Baker Theatre:

click on the tour tab - don't worry the ghost won't get ya - she prefers to mess with projectionists - they are her favorites.
