“Nice, though a bit off the beaten path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2008

We stayed here for one night in mid-April on our way to Blaine. This was a nice Hampton Inn, though not really in the center of things. We knew this beforehand and so stopped in downtown Bellingham for dinner on our way to the hotel, which is a few miles north. The hotel is next to the I-5 and an RV park, just a minute or so from the freeway exit. Noise wasn't a problem for us since we always take a sound machine when traveling; I'm not sure it would have been a problem even without the sound machine. We've stayed in many Hampton Inns before, and this one seemed not quite as nice as some of the others decor-wise, but it was still fine. The bed was great, as usual, as was the breakfast, which was packed with people and included sausages, yogurts, muffins, biscuits, etc. The hotel has a pool, but it had been drained--not a problem for us in the winter (well, "spring," but we drove up in a blizzard), but some other guests complained about it. Not very many TV channels, but again, that was okay. The heater seemed a bit noisy turning off and on all night--it looked like an older system, though the control on the wall was high-tech. All in all, a good stay, though we might choose a more centrally located hotel next time around.

  • Liked — Bed--consistent Hampton Inn sleeping experience!
  • Disliked — A bit too far from center of town.

I visited Bellingham on a business trip and only stayed one night, but I'm glad that I stayed at this Hampton Inn. The rooms were clean with standard amenities for a Hampton. We left so early the next morning that we missed out on the hot breakfast. However, the staff had thoughtfully placed some breakfast items out for really early morning travelers, so we were able to grab and go with a few items.

I would definitely recommend this hotel for business travelers and anyone else who would like to explore the lovely town of Bellingham!

  • Liked — It's SO close to the aiport!
  • Disliked — Nothing.

This is your typical Hampton Inn. Basic room with standard free breakfast. It had been updated but not to the higher end Hampton Inns that you may see in a larger city. The hotel is adjacent to the airport on the north side of Bellingham. I wouldn't stay here for a week, but it is fine for a 1-2 night visit. It was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.

This was a typical Hampton Inn. Quality is assured, breakfast is good, internet is free, cookies in the afternoon.

Checkin and checkout were easy.

The room was about average-sized. Hamptons are the budget brand for Hiltons, but are a step above your typical middle-American roadside chain. The bed is very comfortable! The pillows were too big for my taste. The TV got only 16 cable channels, which was surprising. The shower is comfortable, but the bathroom has no fan. There is free internet access in the room.

Breakfast is served in the lobby and there is an overflow room to accommodate larger groups. It was pretty busy the morning of our stay, but all the food was fresh and kept in good supply. They had egg and sausage biscuits, cereal, oatmeal, fruit, muffins, bagels, and toast. Good coffee.

We had asked for a crib - twice - before our arrival and although it was noted in the reservation request, they had not taken it to the room. That was annoying. But they did bring one up as soon as we requested.

Overall I would stay here again. It's a little pricey for a Hampton off the beaten track, but it's probably par for the course in Bellingham in the summer.

  • Liked — free breakfast
  • Disliked — no fan in the bathroom.

We stayed the night of June 9, 2007. My compliments to the staff and management of this Hotel! It was a busy weekend for hotels in Bellingham, But the front desk staff was courteous and very pleasant to deal with. Our room was EXACTLY what we reserved. The room was clean and very quiet and the beds were very comfortable. Our family travels qutie a bit, and this hotel will be on our return visit list!!!!!

  • Liked — This Hotel seems to have their act together!
  • Disliked — My son was not impressed that the pool was outdoors and it was rainy. He was entertained by Canadians in the pool with grocery bags on their hats so not to get them wet while in the pool in the rain...

A very nice hotel in a quiet area. Very comfortable Cloud 9 beds!!
The front desk people were so helpful!! The evening reception is good -- bottle beer available but no soft drinks (not great when you are with your young family) however, we asked the attendant and he immediately went and found a coca cola for my daughter!! Excellent service, when in the bellingham area we would stay there again!!
