“Solid hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

I just spent a week at the Comfort Inn Bellingham. The price was attractive and the hotel good.

Positives:
*Kristin at reception, super nice
*Good price
*Free breakfast. Tiffany's smile at the breakfast counter every morning was a plus
*Spacious parking lot
*Great location on a walking distance to the mall, stores. It could feel a little too busy that street, in the thick of everything.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back end of the hotel are quiet.

every time when i am booking in bellingham over hot-wire, they are sending us to this hotel.
Generally, hotel is ok, staff helpful. we've been already few times there, but not every time was all perfect. once we all got stomach problems after breakfast.
last time tv was not working, and there where no amenities (tooth brush, shaving set).

Room Tip: check if tv is working, and amenities

Dear Goran O,

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I am sorry to hear that your last stay was not up to your expectations. Here at the Comfort Inn Bellingham our staff is here at the front desk 24 hours a day to take care of our guests needs (including complimentary toiletries such as toothbrushes, shaving items and more). We strive to make every guest’s stay a great one and to be the best value in town. Once made aware of situations we act diligently to resolve the issue. When booking through a 3rd party site like Hotwire, guests unfortunately do not have control of their reservations. If you would give us the pleasure of staying with us again I would love to speak with you personally on those ideas and make sure every stay is a great one. Of course I can be reached by phone (360) 738-1100 or email which is located on your receipt, if more convenient.

Sincerely,

Jason Grover
Manager

We spent a few nights here on a work trip. It's a nice hotel. Rooms were clean, spacious, and comfortable. Service was friendly, and the breakfast was decent.

After traveling professionally for over 2 years, I don't care for the frills most hotels advertise. If you just want a nice clean place to stay, I'd recommend this comfort inn.

I got this hotel through Hotwire, but the regular rates are pretty good, too. It's a great deal for your money. The bed was comfortable, shower was nice, and everything was really clean. Didn't take advantage of the pool, but families seemed like they were enjoying it. I also liked how quiet things were. No road traffic and we couldn't really hear people in other rooms or in the hallway. Breakfast is good as far as hotel breakfasts go. Lots of hot options (waffles, eggs, bacon, biscuits & gravy, etc.) and the woman managing the breakfast area was really friendly. Would definitely stay here again!

Stayed here for one night while visiting Western Washington University with our son. The cookie cutter room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff was very nice. The complimentary breakfast was decent: cereal, oatmeal, eggs, bacon, sausage, coffee, etc. It was about 10 to 15 minutes from downtown. Would stay here again if necessary.

Ok, sure this isn't a 5 star, but it isn't 5 star pricing either! We actually found as good an experience here as we did in hotels we paid twice the price for. Had all you needed really, spacious rooms with comfortable beds, quietest AC I've ever experienced in a hotel (ok, seemed to not pump much juice through, but its Pac NW and that isn't needed. Everything was clean, staff were very friendly. I also really appreciated that it was off the I5 a few minutes - nice to not have to listen to the big truckers rolling through. If there was any complaint at all, I suppose I could say the breakfast items in the hotpans were luke warm/had overstayed their welcome. This likely related more to a slower time at breakfast so the turnover of food wasn't as fast as normal. Just an item to watch for whoever is on. Other than that, enough decent variety to fill up before you head out.

The other item I really appreciated was that I had dropped 1 sandal out of my suitcase and didn't realize until I got home. Staff had found it and when suggested, they have no problem shipping it out for me to match up with its lost soul. It is an extra hastle, but they didn't hesitate. Much appreciated, and we would definitely stop there again if needed. You get much more than the price would lead you to believe!
