I was lucky to find the room when I did. The entire City of Bellingham was sold out because of the WWU graduation, so I took it!
When we got into our room, it was dissapointing. You could tell that the carpets were from the early 90's, the bedding was on this wooden thing made of carpet, and the microwave was so dirty, my father refused to heat his coffee up. We also noticed that there were no hangers and no ironing board as advertised by the choice hotels website. I tend to iron my jeans and sometimes a blouse when I travel so not having this was a huge damper.
Later in the evening, the entire bathroom floor was wet due to a leak under the sink. Luckily my friends who live locally gave me towels to clean up the mess. I was too exhausted to deal with it that evening, so I contained the situation then complained about it in the morning.
The food for breakfast wasn't gluten free friendly whatsoever. For those of us who are intolerant of gluten, wheat, and msg, we cannot eat most of what a continental breakfast offers. A piece of fruit just isn't enough for one to sustain. I ended up having to eat elsewhere that was friendly to gluten free patrons.
Overall, I wouldn't stay at this hotel again unless it was the only thing in town. I was grateful to have clean sheets and a place to lay my head. But to pay several hundred dollars for two nights, it really wasn't worth it.
