Stayed at the Comfort Inn based on others reviews and was not disappointed. In Bellingham for back to school shopping so proximity to Bellis Fair Mall was ideal. Across the road was Costco, Best Buy, Office Depot. A couple doors down was Olive Garden. Overall the location was perfect for us. The room itself was unspectacular but clean, comfortable and adequate in size. Microwave and fridge were handy. Television was a large lcd with plenty of channels. Breakfast was excellent and definitely adds to the value. The woman working the breakfast was outstanding and even went to check her freezer for us to see if she would be able to satisfy our request for a different yogurt flavor. She went above and beyond what was required and I sincerely regret not taking her name so I could share my appreciation of her efforts with management. Pool was rather small but we had it to ourselves for two hours at the supper hour. Hot tub and sauna were good too. Overall I would say this hotel satisfied our every need and if I am back for another shopping trip I wouldn't hesitate to stay again nor would I be hesitant to recommend the Comfort Inn Bellingham to a friend.
