“park & fly overnight stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

I chose this hotel because it's comparable in size/property to the BW hotel that I work at. The grand lobby is beautiful. Friendly front desk staff/management. Our room was just at the end of the hallway on the floor overlooking the atrium/pool area. We thought it would have been noisy but it was very quiet and there was no smell of chlorine from the pool either. Our window faced the parking lot but there was no noise at all in the evening. Hotel is right next door to Fred Meyer store so you can walk and get snacks/beverages etc. There is also a shopping plaza just up the street on the same side as the hotel. Leave your car here and take the BW shuttle to Bellingham Airport, in fact when you stay here you can take the shuttle free of charge anywhere in Bellingham. That's service! Our departure the next morning was very early so they sent us in a taxi to the airport at no cost to us. On the way back, we called the hotel from the airport and the shuttle arrived in less than 10 minutes. The driver would not accept a gratuity from us either, saying it was not necessary. There is another BW hotel closer to the airport but we will definitely stay at the Lakeway Inn property again as there atmosphere is lovely and the rooms beautifully appointed.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

I've stayed here three times in the past 6 months. The hotel is in a very convenient location to everything. It's clean, has all the amenities one would want, and the windows open. The staff are efficient and friendly. The only reason I didn't rate it a 5 is that the rate fluctuates and doesn't include breakfast so it can sometimes seem slightly pricey but that wouldn't stop me from coming back.

Room Tip: There are rooms available with large chairs and a footstool. Handy if someone isn't able to slee...

We stayed at this hotel on our way back to the US/Canada boarder.It is about 15 minutes to Bellis fair mall and there is a Fred Myer right next door. The hotel has alot to offer. We will definitely go back.

We stayed at the Best Western Lakeway Inn last weekend and were impressed from start to finish! Staff was very helpful, our room was very nice, room service for breakfast was convenient and a seafood dinner in the Oboe Cafe was relaxing and delicious. The pool in the center of the hotel gives you a resort atmosphere. This is the BEST Best Western we have ever stayed at!

This is a nice basic hotel. It is right behind a Fred Meyer so it is good that there were many signs. Everyone that worked there was nice. I did think that it was kind of expensive for where it is located.

We recently stayed at the Best Western Plus Lakeway Inn, before flying to Las Vegas. From check in to check out the service was very good. The front desk clerk arranged for our shuttle to the airport in the morning as well as for our return to the hotel after our flight.

The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. We would definitley stay here again.

I felt like the hotel was a 2 star at best but the rates are a 4 star. The rooms are standard rooms, soap dispensors in the bathtub like you see in one star hotels instead of providing shampoo and soap. I assume the rates are so high because they have an attached restaurant.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay with us. It's from these comments that we continue to improve our product.

I am sorry to see you did not enjoy your stay. The dispensers in the showers are part of our Green Initiative to help save our planet from unneeded waste. However, we still do carry the bars of soap and bottles of shampoo. We can offer you an extra bar of soap or shampoo if needed. Just contact the front desk during your stay and we will promptly bring it to you.

Thank you again for staying with us and we hope to see you again.

Make it a Great Day!
