The Hampton Inn Bellingham Airport has more than just a clever name for marketing, it is actually close enough to Bellingham airport (BLI) that you can walk to the terminal. It's easily the closest hotel to the airport and only 15 minutes on foot if you walked. Of course you don't have to walk, the Hampton has an airport shuttle.
The front desk staff were maybe a little casual, otherwise they were perfectly friendly and efficient. Our room with one king bed was kind of a tiny suite, with a couch and lots of open space. Our room (#411) faced the pool, was completely quiet as well as nice and bright. The top floor in this building is 4. The bed was very comfortable for us. Both the room and bathroom were extremely clean. We didn't have the included breakfast, but, the selection of food seemed a little less fun than some of the other free hotel breakfast choices out there.
The Hampton Inn has a huge parking lot with tons of space for overnight guests or park & fly travelers. There is only one restaurant (Mykonos; Greek) within easy walking distance and it's directly across the street. There are lots of good food choices a short drive away.
