“clean room, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

stayed 3 times now and each time the room was clean and staff was great, suggest taking the top floor (need to take stairs) if possible as you can hear people walking to the bathroom in the suites above you...rooms are much quieter on the south side...breakfast included pancakes, toast, bagels, cereal, assorted pastries, boiled eggs, fruit, tea and coffee and juice...can't that for the price of the room!!... haven't tried the pool as we only stayed at this hotel during the fall and winter months... will definitely stay here again!!

Room Tip: ask for south side of hotel, top floor as much as possible if you don't mind taking stairs

This hotel is dated but it is clean and the staff is very helpful. It is close to Bellis Fair and Bellingham Airport. There is also a restaurant/bar/casino next door which we had a good meal. There was a simple but good free breakfast which was great for us as we had to get up early to catch a flight. For the price we paid $69 it was good.

The hotel is right alongside the freeway so it was pretty noisy but it would probably be ok if you had a room on the inside of the complex. The rooms need an update and the beds were quite firm. Breakfast was good, pancake machine as well as toast, bagels etc. For the price, it was just fine and it's super close to lots of shopping

Room Tip: Request a room opposite of the freeway

We would like to let you know that the comments and suggestions we receive from our guests are taken very seriously as they tell us what we’re doing right, what we’re doing wrong and how we can improve. Your willingness to share your recent experience is genuinely appreciated.
We have recently purchased a number of new mattresses, and are currently putting them in some of the rooms. We also plan on putting in all the rooms flat screen TV’s. We try to update our rooms as often as finances allow.
I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a more than satisfactory stay.

We needed a park-n-fly motel that would be a convenient place to park and stay for the night we returned from a full day of flying. This was perfect. Right off Right 5, but quiet. Friendly staff. Great continental breakfast. SUPER value! Clean room. Nothing fancy, but I only needed comfortable and clean...and it was that for sure. They have a contract with the cab company to take you to the airport and pick you up. While that added a bit of a delay--calling the hotel to call the cab to pick you up after a long day of flying and airports--it was the only negative (vs grabbing a cab that was just waiting at the airport...we waited 15 minutes). No big deal, but a better arrangement would make this even better. A friend pays twice as much to stay at the Comfort Inn down the street, and I can't imagine it being any nicer.

Room Tip: Ask for as far away from the street as possible.

I had a two day stay for a reunion with my former college rugby buddies. The room was very clean, spacious, and comfortable. The breakfast was better many I've had at much more expensive hotels. The staff was friendly. The property is conveniently located less than a block from the on and offramps to I-5.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the Casino.

Located on I-5, this is perfect for those looking for a place to crash if you are traveling. Good breakfast (for an Econo lodge). Rooms are a bit cold and appliances and furniture could use an update.

Thank you for saying such nice things about our hotel. It has been quite cold this winter and we do keep the heat on in some rooms, but we never know what type of room our guests will ask for. We will shortly be updating our furniture, TV, and linen, so I hope you will try us again when you visit our area.

Was put up overnight by airline due to flight delay. All staff we encountered were friendly. Rooms were clean but furniture showing it's age. Internet was spotty at best. Did not use any amenities and bypassed the cont. breakfast. Went next door to Slo Pitch for breakfast (very good). With the newer hotels popping up in the area of Bellingham Airport some upgrading of room furniture here would be a suggestion.

Thank you for staying with us. Even though we have upgraded our linen, breakfast, and many in-room amenities, we are not a new swanky hotel. We are however, planning on upgrading the furniture, TV, bedding, and adding different linen to many of our rooms. Please try us again & ask for one of our newly done rooms.
