“Good location and big room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

This hotel is located in north Bellingham, near the mall and many restaurants. The room was quite large - a king bed with good pillows, a fridge and micro and a little sitting area with a chair and sofa. Bed was comfortable. The pool was clean and allowed for a good relaxing couple of hours. Thank goodness the weather was nice. We were out a little later than usual and when we got back the parking lot was pretty full but still several spots open.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

This is a no-frills basic motel, but rates are reasonable and staff is very nice. WiFi worked well and continental breakfast was adequate. There are many motels along this strip of Guide Meridian Road, near Bellis Fair Mall. I would have preferred the LaQuinta or Quality Inn nearby, but they were booked.

The first "non-smoking" room we were given smelled heavily of smoke, but staff was quick to move us to another, more suitable room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side away from the freeway.

A lot of the reviews here seem to rag on this place - It had me questioning if I'd made the right choice in booking it. However it turned out to be great (for the price). Small, old decor rooms and pretty terrible continental breakfast. But you know what? It cost me less than $80.

Front desk service was great and the room, while old, was clean.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2011

we stayed here memorial day weekend, we came with our 2 dogs. we wanted to check out whatcom county area, chuckanut drive etc.
this hotel is probably the best value hotel we have ever stayed in. remodelled inside and outside. new fridge, microwave, carpet, etc.
direct access to outside, which was perfect as we had dogs with us. outside pool, hot tub. breakfast was good, brand new clean breakfast/reception area.
even though the hotel was right next to the I5, the traffic didnt bother us at night...i think the windows were new too, kept the noise out.
a down side? that would be the beds....quite hard. even though the place had a total remodel, the building is still old, and could hear people moving around upstairs quite badly!
definately recommend this place, if you are looking for a great value, budget hotel, for a few nights.

Room Tip: bringing dogs? ask for a first floor room

The officer at reception desk gave me the immediate picture of what kind of service me and my spouse will get. One word to describe "Excellent".
Very helpful and great customer service.
The rooms were very clean and tidy.
Will always stay at this location if travelling to Bellingham. Have already booked for stay in May 2011.

Cheap price, free breakfast, clean rooms, and friendly staff..other good things are the bar and restraunt next door with their take out menu, coupons and good food and you can gamble too. Right off the freeway so easy to get back on the road. I do recommend this place even to my mom.:)
