“Great shopping get away or business hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Good stay - the staff were excellent, it has a very usable INDOOR pool in a central atrium. We did an overnight stay for back to school shopping. I chatted with some guests who tried the restaurant and they said it was decent pub type food. The only thing I found annoying was that the pool doesn't open until 9am - I like to have a morning swim then get going but had to check out without. Still good / clean. They have made a good effort to update an older hotel and done a decent job. Give it a try.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your stay with us! I am glad you enjoyed it! Unfortunately we do not open the pool prior to 9 due to noise that can be created due to its location. However, our fitness center is open 24 hours for your enjoyment!

We look forward to hosting you again soon!

Make it a Great Day!

Stayed in a 1-Bedroom Suite which was very clean, comfortable and nicely appointed, as was the rest of the property. Nice pool area. High speed internet was much better than most hotels.The hotel was full due to multiple events around town and thus the check-in process was a little slower than I had hoped for and the rate was higher than I would typically expect to pay at this class of hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Easy access to I-5. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The poolside suites can get a little loud if the hotel is full of kids, but they are very good at en...

Had a wonderful stay here...clean, comfortable beds, great bedding & pillows, great pool & hot tub, friendly helpful staff. Would stay here again when in Bellingham, WA. Only negatives were the fan was a little noisy on the air conditioner and wished the handicap room was larger as it was a little hard for a wheelchair to move around easily. Otherwise a great hotel!

Beautiful building, nice indoor pool, clean, comfortable beds, excellent service, accommodating friendly staff. Some problem with wifi coverage--ask for a room with a good signal, TV Remotes are environmentally engineered to save the planet...therefor they do not change channels...so get up and change the channel at the set.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay with us. I am sorry to see the wifi and remotes were giving you trouble. I can assure you this will be researched and corrected. They should be changing channels.

This was a wonderful place to stay, helpful staff, courteous. Everything you need right there or close by. Beds are too soft for me. Clean Rooms. The food is excellent and the cost is very reasonable. I would stay here every time I am in Bellingham.

We just got back from a trip to the Pacific Northwest and hockey camp in Bellingham, tied in with a little vacation. The Best Western Lakeway is our choice of hotels in Bellingham.

The location is close to everything, their beds I could live in, no other nights sleep is that great. The Poppes Lounge has music, great service and best hotel food in the world.

The Jacuzzi was nice and hot to soak our bones in and the staff really wants to make your stay better.

See you all again soon.
