“Warm and Inviting Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

In December of 2011 my husband and I stayed one night at the GuestHouse Inn. We were specifically looking for a hotel that offered the Stay & Fly option as we were flying out of Bellingham airport the next morning for a 4 day Vegas trip. On this plan, we stayed the night, enjoyed a great breakfast with lots of choices of warm and cold entrees, parked the car free for 4 days and upon return, were picked up at the airport by taxi and driven right back to the hotel parking lot FREE. Great service indeed! Excellent Senior rates offered. Much appreciated!. Will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: We were happy with our ground floor room on the highway side. Had an excellent sleep, even slept in...

I have used this hotel for our company business many times. It is a very good budget hotel. Staff are great. Breakfast is nice. TV has cable service. The drawbacks: you cannot download attachments to emails (which makes no sense).

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011

Stayed in Bellingham in order to go to Mt. Baker for a weekend (Bellingham is roughly 1 hr and 20 minutes to Mt. Baker). Picked the Guesthouse Inn based on reviews on Trip Advisor and everything people said about this place was accurate. The rooms were clean and spacious. Plenty of room to fit all our bags and snowboarding gear. Microwave, mini fridge, coffee maker, tv with OnDemand & HBO. Breakfast was very good. Waffle maker with strawberry & whipped cream topping, 4 types of cereal, 3 kinds of bagels, english muffins, toast, muffins, apples, 2 kinds of eggs, sausage patties, variety of juices, coffee, peanut butter, jellies, cream cheese, etc. Basically something for everyone. The only thing disappointing was that the hot tub stopped working. We turned it on and nothing happened. I called the front desk and was told the pump was broken and they were going to close it for the evening because of this. Not a huge deal, but would have been nice after a day of snowboarding. Would stay again.

Stayed here before a flight out of Bellingham Airport. The rates were cheap, the room was clean, included breakfast and only 10 minutes from the airport.

I was looking at this place because of its excellent location. Then I got a great price using kayak.com. Based on other reviews, I requested an upper floor, on the east side. That is what they gave me. Everything was clean and efficient. Breakfast was good. It was a great stay at a great price.

Room Tip: be sure to request "east side" away from the freeway.

I enjoyed a great stay at this motel. The staff was courteous, the rooms were clean and well furnished, and the breakfast was very nice. The lady at the front desk was kind enough to upgrade me to a king-sized room at no additional charge. I will definately be staying here again when in Bellingham.
