“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

From the moment we checked in, we were given great service. We could see the 4th of July fireworks from out room and the rooms were clean and quiet. My wife loved the beds because "it didnt dip in the middle", and I loved the breakfast because there was a lot to eat that I liked. We it is also located in a great spot. This will be our first pick if we were ever back in bellingham.

This is our usual go to hotel when we go to Bellingham. It's clean, staff are lovely, rooms are decent! The breakfast is always good, and we all love the coffee/tea station that can be accessed all day. The pool has always been clean when we visit, and the sauna is great! We will continue to be guests here :)

This was our second stay at the Comfort Inn and I have to say I continue to be impressed. Good sized rooms, very nice staff, excellent mattresses and bedding, better than average breakfast with a very nice attendent....... just very good lodging at a very reasonable price. Only downside was the tiny bathroom. Strange given the room was a good size and they could have afforded to steal a little space from the room and dedicate it to a larger bathroom.
We will be back for our third stay when next in Bellingham.

This was our second time staying at this hotel. The service was friendly, the room was clean, quiet, and had everything we needed. Very close to all shopping. The pool was lots of fun for our little one. The only hiccup was breakfast -- very crowded and we had to wait for a table. Otherwise, a perfect stay.

Dear Heather M,

Thank you for taking time out of your day to write a review for our hotel. I am very pleased to hear this was your second stay with us here at the Comfort Inn Bellingham. I am sorry to hear about your experience with the busyness of the breakfast area. When we are heavily occupied we put out extra tables and chairs to accommodate any sort of rush, however, there can be times when bigger groups come down at the same time causing the busyness you mentioned.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, we are always looking for ways to continue to offer our excellent service. Reviews like yours help us to continue to focus on what our guests see and how we can make each stay better.

Sincerely,

Jason Grover

Stayed here for one night on the way back from Portland, In my head, Comfort Inn was more of a "budget chain" but I was pleasantly surprised. Wife had booked the hotel through work and it was much more than budget. Looked liked hallways had been freshly painted or at least seemed bright and new, rooms were a good sized, bed was very comfy, in room wifi worked and was fairly fast (unlike our Portland hotel where it took forever to get online, if we could connect at all), and the buffet in the morning had ample choices for both hot and cold items. Didn't use the very basic fitness room or hot tub, but they have those amenities, too. Emma at front desk was great with directions and food recommendations, guess that's why she was employee of the year! Location right on Meridian was great, easy highway access yet quiet. Would definitely stay again if needed. Only thing to improve might be a liner in the shower, not just a curtain, as water got on floor, but minor point.

We appreciate your review of our hotel. Our main goal here at the Comfort Inn Bellingham is to be the best value. From your review it looks like we have very much succeeded in that. I am glad you had noticed the hallways and beds, the hallways have recently been updated and we are extremely happy with our new pillow top mattresses. Also, thank you for your thoughts on the shower curtains, we take our guest comments and recommendations to heart when making decisions regarding improving our hotel. I have passed along your kind words to Emma, she is a terrific employee and we are thrilled to have her on our staff.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to let us and others know how we did on your stay. We hope to see you on your next trip to Bellingham.

Sincerely,

I was a little aprehensive about the hotel but decided to give it a try, I'm glad I did. The service was good, the room was clean, low noise level (monday night stay) and close to restaurants and shopping in a clean and well kept part of town. If business calls me to Bellingham again, I will be staying with Comfort inn again.

We chose to stay at the Comfort Inn in Bellingham as we were due to fly out to Las Vegas early the next morning. Being from Vancouver, we didn't want to run the risk of being delayed at the border, so thought this was the way to go, and being put off by the reviews of some of the cheaper hotels, I thought this would be a good option.

Great Location - right by the Bellisfair Mall, with some restaurants along the road, asian buffets, and The Olive Garden.

Free Parking - always a bonus.

Free Wifi - Poor speeds, found that I was just better using the data on my cell phone.

Rooms - Slightly dated, but very comfy beds. Our sleep would have been improved if the air conditioner was less noisy (and the room was so hot, we needed it on).
Bathroom was clean, but tired - minor point here, but the towels were so small, a child would struggle to use them, neither myself or my partner found them to be adequate.

So the bad bits - we were excited to see online ***FREE BREAKFAST*** and the reviews seems to all be positive about this.
We were told at reception that breakfast is never available until 6am, which didn't work for us, as we needed to have left by then - disappointed. It is worth noting that the receptionist had bad attitude throughout the whole check-in process - she clearly didn't want to be working at 9pm on a Thursday night.

When we got up to leave the hotel in the morning, around 5:20am, there was people in the restaurant tucking in to sausage, egg and waffles - so breakfast was ready before 6am!!

Would I stay here again? Yes - it was fine for what we wanted.
