“nice for business travel”

Inside pool & spa area, lounge with outdoor heated space makes this idea for business stay. Comfortable beds with fast internet connections. Right off Interstate, plenty of parking and walking distance to food & groceries.

I stayed here overnight with my family on our way home from vacationing in Idaho, and found it to be clean and comfortable with reasonable rates. The lobby is lovely, the pool was a great way to entertain the little one and unwind after a long day of driving. It also has free parking and a nice restaurant and coffee bar on-site which is very convenient. I would definitely choose to stay here again when passing through Bellingham.

I recently stayed one night here to visit WWU with my kids. We arrived earlier than check in time and they allowed early check in. The room was clean. The indoor pool was really nice. The staff was very friendly. It was next door to a Fred Meyer which was nice. I will definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for a few days with our 2 small children. My husband had to work in the area. The pool was fun and had a nice 2 feet deep wading pool that was seperated from the deeper pool for little kids. There were also towels poolside for you to use. The pool is indoors but is a big glass atrium so it is great for the northwest. Plus you don't have to put on sunscreen to play. The rooms are clean and the staff is nice. They even provided directions to a number of parks in the area for my kids to play at.

We are glad to see you enjoyed your stay with us! The pool is perfect for the Northwest, as you know, summers are beautiful, but the other 9 months of the year we pay for it. That's when the pool really comes in handy.

We look forward to hosting you again real soon!

A fantastic hotel, one of the best in the Best Western chain. The pool is awesome. Super clean, super staff, great food! Very conveniently located to all of the city attractions. Very courteous and knowlegable staff. Highly recommended!

Have to give kudos to the Best Western Chain. having guests choose if they want their sheets and towels changed or not as a step towards saving energy and water gets an award from us.
The only complaint I have is the use of the coffee machines with throw away plastic sachets which negates any win. And artificial creamer yuk

Room Tip: the rooms on the wings might be quieter, we were next to the expressway

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay with us! And thank you for the kind words regarding our green initiative. Best Western is constantly striving to lower the carbon footprint we make on the globe.

Thank you for letting us know about the coffee makers. We are looking at new machines right now, and hope to have in place shortly.

Overnight on business, this Best Western sports an incredible staff, excellent rooms and the best oh-so-delicious-bad-for-you snack available. Try the fries with tomatoes, green onions, cheddar and bacon - you'll want to swim some laps after but its worth it! Top floor room was quiet, well-kept, and spacious (had a king bed studio). After a very long work day, appreciated staff bringing a late night snack to the room even after room service was done for the day. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the east side, away from I-5.
