“Great spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Rooms were clean and beautiful and well maintained. Staff was wonderful and accommodating. Perfect for visiting WWU to check out the school. Restaurant downstairs, Oboe I believe, was perfect and they had great room service, very quick with a few places within walking distance including a grocery store. Access to the school was easy and a short drive brought you to lots more cheap eating places. Overall a great experience and much appreciated. East to get on and off the I5 too!

This was the first Best Western Plus that I've stayed in, and I was pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean. I like that the remote control has a special jacket to make it easy to clean, too. The front desk clerk was friendly and competent. As another reviewer noted, some of the furniture is a bit worn, but I'm happy to stay in a place with worn furniture if it's clean. I will probably stay here again on my next trip through Washington.

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!

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.

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.
