“good, clean, convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

This is a really good, no bells-and-whistles kind of hotel. Clean, quiet, decent. And priced fairly. Checked in late and the room was held for us, no surprises. All in all, we'd stay here again. In fact, we've stayed here already a few times.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

The location and service was terrific. Having a dog, needing to walk, the area felt safe and a park nearby really helped. Finding warm and welcoming staff in the office, a really nice breakfast in the morning, gave me the ease to take care of all the details I need to see to and not worry about the accommodations.
Thanks!

Room Tip: Being on the first floor with a dog was great!

Close to everything that counts in Bellingham. The food available at breakfast time is varied and substantial. They like dogs here; loved the "Dog welcome Kit"! Free wi-fi, cold drinks, and all the stores one could ever wish to visit only 5 minutes away.

I had a very nice time here. The place is quiet and clean. The staff is very helpfull and polite.
If you are just in transit i think this is a very good place to stay and rest. There is also a pool and an excellent jacuzzi, very clean.

Decided to stay here for the night as we had a morning flight the next day. We did a park and fly. Our vacation was 1 week and the park and fly rate was only about $30-40 more than if we parked at the Bellingham airport. The front desk ladies were nice and friendly. They organized our taxi to the airport the next morning (which is covered with the park and fly rate). Room was bigger than we expected. Bathroom was very clean which I was thrilled about. Barely heard our neighbours. Actually barely heard the traffic despite its proximity to the i5. Had a good sleep. No issues with anything. When we got back, we called the lodge and they set up the taxi to come pick us up. My car was still there in the parking lot. 5/5 just for that. Will definitely stay here again. Also, a bonus was its proximity to the Bellis Fair mall.

Room Tip: Ask for the highest floor if you don't want to hear people above you.

We have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed. Our friends from the
island stay here too and we're all very satisfied with everything. The breakfast room smells fine. If people are not happy with it, go elsewhere. We're happy with the food there. For the money you are paying, this motel is very good value.

Room Tip: If you don't want to hear any noise above you, stay on the top floor.

i have stayed here over 18 times due to business travel. Staff is helpful and friendly and rooms are clean and comfortable. Great value for the price. They also have a swimming pool and jacuzzi which are well kept. I will continue to stay here anytime I travel to Bellingham.

Room Tip: Rooms on west side are quieter.
