This was a very nice place. The room was surprising large, clean and well kept. The wireless works and breakfast was hot and yummy.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

I was with a group of 7 people and we requested 3 rooms next to each other and when we checked in we were very happy to have had the request granted. The rooms were adequate, clean and good size. The beds were very comfortable. Staff was friendly and accomodating. The breakfast was good. For the price and location I would stay here again.

I rated the establishment as very good for the rates they charge and the improvements i've see in the last three to four years, one of which is their wireless internet, it being the fastest of any of the hotels i've stayed in around the country. The staff is friendly and efficient and seem to do their best to accommodate your needs. I hope they continue to improve the property as they seem to be striving to do.

The Bellingham Lodge is a decent low-end accommodation near the I-5 freeway with easy driving access to downtown. Tub and shower. Average bed. Good TV choices. Wouldn't want to be there in busy times, but fine with low occupancy. HVAC worked well. Compare rooms since some have obstructed views, etc. Hot tub in a central building. Several restaurants nearby. A free continental breakfast with waffles cooked to order.

So apparently on Google the motel management writes the reviews, because this motel had some of the best reviews. In reality this motel is very, very dirty. Our first clue that this place isn't ok was the torn up and filthy carpet in the lobby and on the stairs. The only available king size room was a "suite", a slightly larger than avg. room with a whirlpool tub. The tub appeared clean, but on getting in to shower there were "hairs" in the bottom and soap dried on the tile walls. The tiles and grout surrounding the tub was very dirty. The next day our room wasn't cleaned at all, although the towels were replaced with more stained, holey towels. The comforter was stained with blood and yellow stains. The pillows were yellowed and lumpy. The couches and chairs were stained and dirty.
Here were the good things: a beautiful mirror on the wall and very nice smelling soap in the bathroom.

If saving money is your priority, this is your place. However, if you expect your hotel to be clean, this place is not for you. The place reeks of cheapness, from the floors to a horrendous room decor, to smells that you know are not yours.

The breakfast would be considered luxurious in third world country, but for someone with any standards, it is absolutely unacceptable.

The owner's attitude is they can't please everyone, so if you don't like it, too bad. Again, if all you want is to save money and have low expectations, this may be an option. Otherwise, please spend a few bucks more and stay at a place that cares.

Room Tip: Bring earplugs and ignore the cheapness for a total experience.

I have no criticism about the accomodations at all. I accidentally reserved a room with a single bed but smoking. When I found that out, I told them smoking was no good. They immediately offered me a nonsmoking room with two beds for the same price. The beds were very comfortable, the cable TV was great. I could walk to eating places. I could take the bus to downtown. It was right by Interstate 5.

Only real problem I can report is that the wireless Internet was spotty in my room. They said it was loaded with all the customers lodged there. What I ultimately found was that my room was on the very border of what the wireless access point would reachl. I brought my netbook to the lobby and everything worked perfect.

I recommend this place, but if you find your connection failing, go to the breakfast room where the signal is better.
