“worst place to stay...hell hole”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

This place is BY FAR the worst place I have ever stayed in my entire life!! I would rather sleep on the sidewalk!! We booked 2 rooms for a wedding party and as I was going out to my car to get some luggage after the wedding reception.. the OWNERS!!!!!!!!!! told the other guests they can beat me up for making too much noise!!! We had the motel as a meeting spot and everyone went their seperate ways within half an hour... within seconds of the lady owner yelling for someone to beat me up... a man came running after me with a STICK!!!! I will never go back to this place if my life depends on it!! The owners are inconsiderate jerks!!! I have not one good thing to say about this place!! Also... when the guy who chased me found out we came back from a wedding... he came and apologized for chasing me and oh... throwing a drink at me!!! but yet, the owners had nothing to say except for trying to get me and my sisters kicked out!! I hope these pathetic owners get a taste of their own medicine or have the same thing happen to their own children so they know how it feels!!!! Good riddence to this hell hole!!!!

Room Tip: do not book this motel..ever

I stayed overnight at the Shamrock on Wednesday, August 8, 2012 - one night stay - and left my car there until Monday August 13th. The room, bathroom and bedding were clean and the motel was quiet enough for me to sleep well. I left my car there for about 5 days while on my trip and was given a lift to the airport. I have absolutely NO complaints about service or the facility or the price. I do realize that it might be noisier on the weekend and will bear that in mind in the future, but my experience was very positive for this stay. Thank you !!

Room Tip: Ummm... there isn't a swimming pool or restaurant that I know of.

Me and my mother stayed at the Shamrock Motel for a week, a nice break from our prolonged stay in our van. Each month that goes by we try to stay at a hotel or motel for a week. The location is good, it's familiar. Close to the airport and I-5, minutes away from the Bellis Fair Mall and other shopping districts. There was one point that we had a foul up, but it was sorted out. The room that we had stayed in was spacious. The room looks like it was once a kitchen unit, but the stove was removed for a heater. Has a decent size fridge that works pretty good. The bathroom was sort of small, but it's usable, the room itself is clean. The tv had some good channels, the Wifi you have to pay $5.00 for it but it is good service. At one point I had my laptop on for two and a half days without service intereption. Overall the room is good, and for the price you can't beat it in the City of Bellingham. In the end, I think I will come back in the future sometime.

Room Tip: South side rooms don't have the sun coming in during the day.
