“Great Location - Clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

New hotel that only opened in December 2013 - it shows.

As with all La Quinta properties, this one is very well kept. We especially love the location - next to Fred Meyer, right off the I5, and about 2km from the Bellingham Airport.

Had to stay here after a freak snowstorm shut down BLI and our flight was cancelled. Because I am a La Quinta Returns member, the welcomed me without a reservation - love it!

Rooms are very spacious and somewhat quiet. I say that because we *could* here the going's on in the room next door.

As with all La Quinta's the room has a fridge, microwave and awesome TV - such that it isn't locked down and you can hook your laptop up to it - Love it!

We will stay here again, and love the free breakfast in the morning.

Oh, they take pets.

My daughter and I decided to go to Bellingham for a little get away and wanted to stay somewhere different. We noticed that the new la Quinta had opened up and decided to try it. This is a brand new hotel. So the staff are still trying to get the hang of the front desk services and overall checking in and check out. I was expecting an invoice under my door in the morning for a quick check out, but had to stand in line behind another couple that were taking some time to check out.
Surprisingly thought the room was quiet and the breakfast was very good. The indoor poor is a great addition. It is right next door to Fred Meyers. So everything is very convenient. I look forward to staying there again.

Make sure you set the alarm, wake service didn't happen!!! therefore service rating received only mid value. Other than that it was very good. Front canopy is a little cramped for space so Keep Right when checking in. No shuttle service or Stay & Fly option.

Would like to thank Tina (GM) and her team for making our stay this past weekend quite wonderful, we really had a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend. The rooms are large and well appointed and with the hotel being brand new everything looks fresh and is very clean. Everyone we met from check in, to check out were very welcoming and had a "can not do enough for you attitude". When we walked into the bright spacious lobby we were greeted warmly and made to feel very welcome.

The breakfast was good, with a hot selection usual waffles but also sausages and scrambled eggs that you do not get at all La Quinta hotels, the gentleman who runs the breakfast was great, he had everything stocked up and kept the whole area clean and was very nice and pleasant...which is a nice way to start your day.

Like any new hotel (only open 2 months) their were a couple of things like no ice machines on the floors, but bring your bucket to the front desk and they will fill it up for you from the restaurant.
The phone system would not let us make a local call, but it was just a glitch and was addressed promptly. The hotel is dog friendly and she was offered a dog a treat when we checked in, we did not see any pet dedicated green space outside so can imagine at some point that could be a problem if people do not pick up after there pets, bring your own "poopy" bags as did not see a dispenser outside.

Hotel is located 2 minutes from I5, next to Fred Meyer (very convenient) and offers plenty of good sized parking stalls. Their is a small pool with separate Hot Tub and was very nice to see that they are both handy capable user friendly. There is also a small fitness center.

We will definitely be back to this hotel and would recommend staying here if you are spending some time in Bellingham. We enjoyed our walks downtown and had a great morning at Whatcom Falls Park (great open off leash area for the dog)...have to drive but only about 10-15 minutes away.
PS...we also had great Pizza delivered from Westside Pizza. (to heck with the carbs).

Room Tip: Elevators are at one end of the hotel so may be of concern if mobility is an issue. Don't think...
