“Good basic stay for a shopping trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

This place is where I stay when I want a clean cheap place to stay while visiting bellis fair mall. It is not glamorous, it is functional. It's across the street from the mall always low price and includes breakfast. Perfect for my needs and free wifi

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Obvious pride in ownership as the room facilities were very good and the property, including the parking areas, was well maintained. This is an older structure (with elevator) that has been completely rehabbed. The automatic pancake maker was the highlight of the excellent complimentary breakfast. Location is wonderful if you wish to go to the airport and it is also in walking distance of shopping and restaurants. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are probably somewhat quieter but cost marginally more.

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

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

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.
